/ Bunkhouses in Dartmoor?
Also, Sparrowhawk in Moretenhampstead - this is a lovely little town, with some nice pubs. Not sure about the camping though.
Hmmm...Plume of Feathers bunkhouse has some pretty awful reviews on TripAdvisor - has anyone stayed there?
Sparrowhawk looks OK but only 16 max so a bit smaller than I'm looking for.
I've stayed at Plume of Feathers and Powdermills. No problem with POF but Powermills is better. Nice cosy spot, nowhere near the pub though.
Actually that looks pretty good - thanks!
Anyone stayed there (Powdermills)?
The Prince of Wales in Princetown and the Fox Tor Cafe in Princetown could probably cover your numbers with their respective bunk houses and are only about 200m apart. The Fox Tor Cafe is great for brekkies. The Plume is fine for camping! I live in the village so am qualified to comment feel free to PM if you need any info and may well join the picnic :-)
> Just found Dartmoor Expedition Centre - looks like one of the barns just takes 21. Anyone stayed there?
Not stayed there but Widecombe is a nice spot (if a little full of grockles), good pub (Rugglestone Inn) and a stones throw from some great climbing and bouldering (Haytor/Lowman/Bonehill/Hound Tor etc).
There's also a bunkhouse/camping at Holne (call Holne Barn I think) and Runnage Farm bunkhouse that I can think of that aren't mentioned above, not sure if either sleep 20+ though.
Would be cool if we WERE able to stay there :-)
I think it might be a bit too small but there is a YHA camping barn near Hound Tor.
Love the place at Holne but I think they've stopped doing it and are planning on converting the barn in to a holiday cottage. I'm sure if you e-mailed them. Tea shop and pub are nice in Holne too.
