Here then is the place to spend a few wonderful quiet days camping.This Site is here in the middle of Dartmoor, ideally sited for Walking/Hiking on Dartmoor.Warning, dont bring a big Caravan though, firstly due to the tiny Dartmoor roads and secondly because there is no electric hook ups and thirdly you will have difficulty finding a very large flat area, (as pictures will show). If you really want to get to grips with the real Dartmoor then look no further. The famous village of Widecombe is but a 5 minute car drive and the friendly Rugglestone Inn ? is a short walk away.The Elderly owners will not bother you at all during your stay, usually saying hello sometime after arrival (pitch where there is a gap) and saying good bye when you call in to leave and PAY, YES you are TRUSTED to pay on DEPARTURE, what a wonderful change.
This then is the Entrance board that greets you, notice prices per person, children's reductions according to age.
Here then are a few pictures of the site (over 3 fields).The owners house is in the background of this first picture, its on the other side of the road 40 yards away, NOT the house opposite !!!.
You notice the lovely little stream that runs through the whole site and keeps the kids happy for ages. If you camp close to the Stream you are sure of a warm welcome from the resident Ducks.
Toilet/Shower block is shown in the background and is uphill.
This next picture shows the second field (+toilet block) with a large flat area.
The next one is looking toward the entrance.
This picture shows just how steep parts of these fields really are.
This picture shows the main entrance area.
These are pictures of the lovely little stream that meanders through this site.
And this one of the last field.
Lastly, another stream picture.
There are basic showers, plenty of Hot water for washing and dishes etc.Lovely trusting owners.Beautiful surroundings with Buzzards wheeling overhead, Robins and Chaffinches popping in for crumbs and Skylarks high in the sky above.
There is a small shop on site in season, selling Bread, Eggs, Milk etc.
So then that is Cockingford, Basic...Yes.
No electric hook ups......Yes
Want to visit .....YES YES YES.
