/ Dartmoor Camping Recommendations please.
theres a good and cheap campsite close to widdecombe, simple stuff but showers and toilets.
theres a campsite in chudleigh about a mile out of town thats ok and not too bad price wise
afraid i cant remember either campsites name
There is one near Holme. Stayed there a couple of times.
Free wild camping Pretty much anywhere on the moors.
Discrete bivvy at chudleigh in big overhang at end of south face (pixies hole is it?).
Used to be able to Pitch a tent Below north wall at chudleigh in the nexus sexus plexus area for a small fee to the house, no idea if still available?
Wild camping is prohibited in the Hay Tor area but continues for the discreet.
If you want an 'official' site then of the SE side of the moor The Rugglestone is recommended and gives you access to a decent pub.
If you're wild camping there are some great places, but you should be happy to take down your tent each day. Fine if you're moving around and a few, but not so good if you're many, have a few days and somewhere to safely leave things, relax etc.
My favourite spot wild spot would be down at Luckey Tor. Great climbing, swimming and beautiful. Thirty minutes walk but worth it.
On the path between Hound Tor and Smallacombe rocks is a clearing by a stream which also is picturesque and private.
For organised camping this place is great:
Fifteen minutes to Hay Tor and Chudleigh and thirty five to the Dewerstone. Reasonable showers and toilets and the village has a shop and three varying pubs.
Thanks for the help everyone- feel free to keep suggestions coming in !
there's a site in Princetown behind the plume and feathers which is ideal for food and beer!
