Found almost bang in the centre of the iconic Dartmoor National Park, Runnage Riverside Camping site is a wonderful location offering a brilliant camping experience in a natural meadow. There are no marked or fixed pitches at Runnage, so you can literally rock up in the car and place your tent wherever you wish. Basic shower and toilet facilities are available for guests to use, while for large groups there are also camping barns and Granary Bunkhouse on the site.
One of the biggest attractions of Runnage Riverside Camping site is this is a working farm, so nature lovers are surrounded by animals for the duration of their stay here. A small range of food is sold in addition to firewood as campfires are permitted in existing firepits at the site owner's discretion.
If you're looking for a dog friendly campsite in Devon, look no further, as they're very welcome here. Guests are asked to keep their dogs on their leads and to clean up after them.
When it is time to head out and explore the local area, you will find the whole of wild and wonderful Dartmoor at your fingertips. The great thing about the area is that there are plenty of activities to be enjoyed, whether you’re looking to find your own way across Dartmoor or take part in organised walks and trails. Cycling, horse riding and climbing are also widely available from many centres across Dartmoor.
The nearest village to Runnage Riverside Camping site is Postbridge, which has a friendly shop, a country pub and a rather handy tourist information centre, where you can find out what is happening across Dartmoor National Park and further afield during your holiday period.
While there is plenty to do across dramatic Dartmoor itself, one of the attractions of pitching anywhere in Devon is that there is so much to do, both in this county and in neighbouring Cornwall. In fact, the world famous Eden Project is only a 90-minute drive from Runnage Riverside Camping and is the perfect destination for a day trip, particularly if you’re staying at this campsite during the school holidays when there are always additional exhibitions.
Devon and Cornwall’s coastlines are stunning whether you want to visit pretty, quaint seaside towns or villages, enjoy a gentle cliff top amble or get active with a spot of diving, windsurfing or surfing. Missing the city life? Plymouth is under an hour from this campsite in Devon, Exeter less than an hour's drive in the other direction, both with cathedrals, great shops and plenty of places to eat out.
Or why not head to the county's south coast and the English Riviera. Leave the site and after about an hour in the car you could be in Torquay or perhaps Paignton with its popular zoo, the market town of Totnes around 45 minutes from Runnage Riverside Camping.
Staying in the heart of Dartmoor is a wonderful opportunity and it is sure to help make your camping holidays in Devon very memorable.
