The campsite lies on the edge of Winkleigh which is a small but pleasant place. Drive north to the coastal village of Bideford (01237 477676) with nearby beaches Instow and Westward Ho! or stop along the way at Rosemoor Garden (0845 265 8072) in the market town of Great Torrington. Winsford Walled Garden (01409 221477) is also close at hand, as is Dunsland, a large historic park abundant in wildlife. Finch Foundry (01837 840046) is an interesting National Trust site on the edge of Dartmoor National Park (01822 890414), the last working water-powered forge in the UK, it provides an insight into the areas industrial past. From here its a short step into the national park itself which is, of course, the perfect place for outdoors enthusiasts. The Granite Way (01837 53020) is an excellent purpose built cycleway, ideal for families, while The Two Moors Way is a long distance footpath that runs from Ivybridge on the southern edge of Dartmoor all the way up to Lynmouth on the North Coast of Devon. Just west of the campsite you'll also find the start of The Tarka Trail, one of the most famous routes in the area that heads north to Barnstable and the coastal towns. Families may also enjoy The Big Sheep (01237 472366) an award winning all-weather amusement park, while Exmoor Zoo (01598 763352) is also popular, though slightly further away.
Food & Drink
Winkleigh, though small, has plenty of good shops including a local butcher, florist, a general store and a cactus nursery, along with a successful Cider Brewery (01837 83560). Fiona's Farm Shop (01837 83382) is the place to go for fresh local meat as well as freshly baked cakes, pastries and Devon cream teas. In the village square, Wright & Proper (01837 83038) is a smart café bistro, while The Seven Stars (01837 83344) is a friendly pub often hosting live music. The Duke of York (01837 810253) in Iddesleigh – a thatched 15th-century inn overlooking Dartmoor with a warm atmosphere and more top grub – is your hosts' personal recommendation. The Lymington Arms (01837 83572) in the neighbouring village of Wembworthy is worth a visit, while The Kings Arms (01837 83384) is a charming 16th century thatched inn that's ideal for drinks or a good meal - the Winkleigh favourite.
