Views of Dartmoor and easy access to the treasures it holds
Feeling a bit hemmed in? Then take a trip to the ancient, fascinating landscape of Dartmoor, one of England’s great breathing spaces. With some of Europe’s finest archaeological remains (including circles & stone rows), burial chambers and moss-covered boulders in woods of twisted trees, a visit here feels like falling into a chapter of Tolkien’s Lord of the Rings. Set amongst a sheltered valley in Dartmoor’s favoured south-west edge, Langstone Manor is an idyllic camping escape, perfect for those wanting to discover the brooding, windswept wilds of the adjacent moorland.

There’s a relaxed, peaceful atmosphere here, with no long list of rules and regulations. Set in the grounds of a traditional country manor, the entrance to the site (through a field of mobile homes) can be slightly off-putting, however the camping fields are truly superb. Pitches in the Daffodil field are flat, predominantly terraced (to ensure a sense of seclusion), and offer panoramic views across the neighbouring moors. The facilities are of a high standard too. The toilet block is kept immaculately clean, with spacious, roomy showers, vanity basins and flushing toilets, whilst in cooler months the block is heated. There’s also a separate bathroom (for a small charge), ideal if you’re camping with the kids.

On a summer's day, Dartmoor is a postcard-maker's dream. Ponies wander fancy-free, sheep graze beside walking paths and the welcoming communities of Princetown, Widecombe-in-the-Moor, and petite Postbridge bustle along nicely with craft markets, small festivals and cosy pubs. It's this cinematic scenery that persuaded Steven Spielberg to film War Horse here, and Dartmoor also became the setting for Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's legendary crime novel, The Hound of the Baskervilles. When winter arrives and sleeting rain, howling winds and churning mists take over, you can see why Doyle choose this wonderfully eerie wilderness.

Many families bring bicycles to Langstone Manor so their offspring can tear along the purpose-built cycle ways, with The Granite Way and Drake's Trail providing spectacular, traffic free routes. If they’re not doing that, guests can usually be found skinny-dipping in the nearby river, or swing merrily in the outdoor play area. As for everyone else? Well, they’re just kicking back and enjoying that peaceful, relaxed atmosphere.

the new experience is the quality of food ----brilliant

Having stayed with Jane and Dave at Langstone Manor over the last 17 years or more, they have constantly put time, effort and money into their hobby of maintaining a perfect place. Every year it seems to improve with either improved level camping pitches, more pods, new caravans, superb toilets childrens play areas, secluded areas, but this time it is the quality of the food. They have brought in a new dimension with the top quality food at realistic prices to be eaten in the new conservatory or main bar area. Well done Jane and Dave. The family and I will be visiting again in August.

Perfect location

Fantastic, clean and well appointed facilities with friendly, helpful staff. Dog friendly. We intended staying in our motorhome for a couple of nights, but loved it so much we ended up staying for 9 and we would have stayed longer but for family commitments. Would recommend this site to anyone and we will definitely return, sooner rather than later.

Glorious respite

After being soaked to the skin for two nights, we arrived at Langstone Manor. We have visited this campsite a few times over the yearsand it has always been amazing. I don't use this term lightly but this place goes above and beyond to make your stay wonderful. We had ghastly eather and were in a tent, so the warm wlcome of food in the bar and games was a bonus, but what makes this really special are the people and the facilities. Long ago there was a cute pink toilet block for the ladies, which was very clean and better than every where else, but now there is a super clean, modern and spacious toilet block, with hot water on demand, large cubicles and eve a free hairdryer. There are washing up facilities as good as your own home and a laundry room. The price is very reasonable and our pitch was spacious and delightful. They even managed to put us in the spot we requested when booking. There is plenty of recycling and a real 'green' vibe here. the staff are lovely and there are no 'dos and don'ts'. What else can I say? Te only downside is that any campsite you ever go to after this will be a disappointment!

Calm and beautiful

My boyfriend and I stayed at Langstone Manor for two weeks in june 2014 and we had the best time. Of course it helped that we had 12 days of sunshine but other than that the campsite is just perfect. On arrival we requested a pitch in the shade and that was no problem. The site is right in the middle of Dartmoor nature and at night it can be really quiet which is great. The facilities are very new and clean with free showers. The other campers were nice. Mostly couples who liked nature and a bit of adventure. We were not too keen on a group of women who were having a party but their behaviour wasn't too bad and they didn't stay long. Finally the staff is friendly and the Jail Ale at the pub is very tasty!
