The top of the campsite's track meets a bridleway which runs through countryside from Okehampton to Holsworthy. It makes for a pleasant walk or cycling route directly from the site. The castle in Okehampton is a worthy destination too. It's the largest castle remains in Devon (03703 331181), set on a wooded spur above the rushing River Okement. It was originally a stone keep, built after the Norman conquest, but was transformed into a residence for the Earl of Devon in the 1300s. There is a riverside picnic area and beautiful woodland walks nearby. From Okehampton, it's easy to dive into Dartmoor National Park for walking, mountain biking and more. Visit Lydford Gorge (01822 820320), the deepest gorge in the South West with a spectacular 30m waterfall, or climb up the banks of impressive Meldon Reservoir. In the opposite direction it's an 35-minute drive to Bude and the beaches of the North Devon and Cornwall coast.
Food & Drink
The campsite is at the end of a long, private track, so it's a bit of a shlep to find the nearest pub. It's just under 4 miles to the excellent Clovelly Inn (01837 871447) in Bratton Clovelly but most things can be covered in Okehampton, including a superb fish and chippie (Kempley's Catch; 01837 52503). There are also 3 supermarkets, a butchers, grocers and newsagents, amongst other independent stores.
