The Owner Says

Our unfurnished 4m bell tent is a great value option option for a couple. The bell tent comes complete with a heavy-duty zipped in groundsheet and a firepit/bbq for that authentic camping experience. Locally sourced logs, kindling and charcoal are for sale in our on-site wine shop, The Devon Wine Shack.

A spacious bell tent, beautiful views, a peaceful setting and wine from the vineyard you overlook are all conducive to a relaxing camping experience

Staying in our bell tent gives you the freedom to enjoy your holiday to the full from when you arrive to when you leave, without the faff of having to put up/take down your own tent.

So, bring everything you need to camp except the tent. Relax, unwind and sip a glass of wine overlooking the vineyard and Dartmoor. Chew the fat around the campfire and get back to nature in a bit of style!

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.

Fantastic first camping experience

What a perfect first camping experience. We were two mums with two children each (aged 4, 5 and two 6 year olds) and one grandmother. We stayed in the glamping tent and then one of the 4m Luna tents using the jobs in the glamping “kitchen”. It’s a nice small site with around 6 families each night when we were there. The kids were so happy to be on site and the facilities were fantastic for them, they went off and played in the secure woodland and in the field with a football pitch for hours. We didn’t borrow any of them (as we had our own) but there are garden games available to borrow. The views are fantastic and the setting very calming. The Glamping tent was just right for me, my mum and my two children. The adults slept in the double bed and the kids in the single Futons. The bedding was clean, snug and well presented. We spent one evening at The Kings Arms in Winkleigh for supper (you defo need to book ahead) which was lovely, great food and kid friendly. We had a fire each night (wood and marshmallows sold on site) Such a lovely way to spend the first camping trip, thank you Ester and Toby. We didn’t get around to having your Pizza from the pizza oven so we shall have to come again! Sally, Ann and Helen and the 4 kids

Perfect site

Esther is the perfect host of a beautiful site, meticulously kept with stunning views over the vines to Dartmoor - fabulous facilities for kids to play and dog walking, very friendly people on site - kids loved the site especially the wooded area with hammocks, we had a fabulous week here and would definitely go back, fire wood, good cider and wine for sale, what more could you want - highly recommended

Perfect campsite

We have just got back from a fantastic few days at 10 acres. The campsite is lovely and peaceful, with stunning views over the vines and dartmoor in the distance. Lots of space, clean loos, a hot shower, friendly guests and owners and lots to do in the surrounding area. Couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Grape Expectations

Sitting by the campfire, drinking in not only the fine views over to Dartmoor but also the wine from the vines that are right next to your tent. Esther and Toby are fab hosts who keep an immaculate campsite. The vineyard tour is well worth it and our kids took themselves off to the playing field for hours at a time. Oh and chickens and charismatic pigs for added entertainment too. We'll be back.
