Welcome to Cockingford Farm Campsite, a family run, idyllic, Dartmoor Campsite
We offer a range of options for your camping getaway.
You can book a large pitch, choose an unpitched spot or why not stay in Cockingford Caravan or our fabulous Valley View Pod.
Either book with us or just turn up and request a pitch.

Booking is recommended for staying in the caravan and
the pod. Please use the booking forms to do this.
The campsite is made up of three fields with the East Webburn river running along the bottom.
Walk to the top of the third field for wonderful views through the Widecombe valley and up on the moors. Beautiful for sun sets and star gazing. There are benches, a picnic bench and a water tap at the top.
Dogs are very welcome, but must be kept on leads. There are farm dogs and cats, who are very friendly, but please be mindful of this when coming over to the farm.
We currently only offer electric for Cockingford Caravan, the pod has a battery charged solar panel with two USB ports an indoor and outdoor lighting.
If you need to charge devices or bikes, please speak to one of us at the farm where we will be more than happy to help.
We have a WIFI in the lower part of the first field (currently developing a WIFI room next to the house)
Please be mindful of others and our living space.
At the farm we have a small farm shop selling eggs, milk, clotted cream, butter and meat*, scones, cream and jam and soon hope to have ice creams, and pasties.
*Frozen meat, mainly sausages and burgers but other cuts are available at different times.
What is near by?
Widecombe village is a half hour walk from the campsite. There is a footpath which cuts off the corner of the hill and takes you to the main country road in.
The village has 2 pubs (we recommend booking), a cafe, general store, three gift shops and a kiosk on the green.
The Widecombe market is open every Thursday and every 4th Saturday and is well worth a visit.
Ashburton and Bovey Tracey are our nearest towns. Both have Chinese, Indian and Fish and chip takeaways as well as different restaurants. Both have lovey shops to explore - Ashburton is known for its antique shops!
Both towns have outdoor swimming pools and small supermarkets.
The moors can be got to by walking either direction out of the campsite. Buckland beacon with the 10 commandments is a great visit. Either set off for a big walk or you can drive to Cold East Cross and walk a shorter distance from there. Turning the other way takes you past many great stopping points across the moors and also takes you towards Princetown and Tavistock.
Trago Mills is 20 minutes away and offers lots of attractions for all the family and has big shopping store full of all sorts, including camping equipment!
