Paradise for hyperactive kids of all ages. Campers who stay on the caravan park have free access to the adventure park which is bursting with Commando Assault course (for big and little children!), Pirate Ship, Toddlers beach, Toddlers Playground (Lilliput), Spiders web, Wooden play fort, Cows Udders, Snake Slides, Zip wires and Jungle Fun. Plenty of supervised play plus canoeing and Water Zorbs. Go for it !! Not that they welcome noisy teenagers. As their website quotes "If you are looking for late nights and wild parties, we would politely suggest you find an alternative venue!"
I was hugely impressed with this immaculate caravan park. Within a minute's drive of the A30 dual carriageway to Cornwall. Easy to come off and get back on again.

Fancy trying your hand at a spot of kayaking or horse riding here on Dartmoor? Then this is the place. I'm amazed that Hannah and Luke can fit B&B into their lives as they are such busy people here at Lowertown Farm where the theme most definitely is conservation and caring for the land, Dartmoor ponies, trees, birds and local the local community. The 3 rooms on offer are a flexible mix, the largest one is a family room with a double bed plus bunks. Add to that a room that can be a double/twin or single AND another double all with good views. Plus a guest sitting room with log burner. Ok, so there are no flat screen TV's in the rooms, but with lots going on outdoors, some great pubs nearby for evening meals and all this fresh air you won't care because in the morning there will be the farm's fresh free range eggs for breakfast. Children are welcome to collect the eggs and feed the chucks.
All very swish... this bed and breakfast is "lush". Between Chagford and Fernworthy Reservoir. Stunning detached chalet in the grounds of the main house with most impressive giant wetroom and sauna. Very fabulous indeed. Superb garden with lake and stream. Quiet, peaceful. Eat outdoors on your own decking. Top notch. I loved it.
I paid a visit to Penny at Brook Farmhouse and absolutely loved it! Ancient thatched farmhouse full of charm. Homemade biscuits to have with your tea. Easy access into Exeter. I thought that it had only one bedroom on offer, but actually there are 3 bedrooms which Penny will only let to one party, so it is most frequently used just as a double. Apart from the huge main bedroom there is a spacious double and a child's bedroom, again with a double bed on offer. They share a bathroom, but it's a great space at the top of your own private, steep, charming staircase plus your own roomy guest lounge.
