About Us

Welcome to Cockingford Campsite, set on the outskirts of Widecombe in the Moor, Dartmoor.

Voted 3rd best British campsite 2016, we pride ourselves in keeping camping and caravaning simple, relaxing and unspoilt. The East Webburn river flows along the bottom of the three camping fields, great for paddling and swimming, bringing much fun for children and adults alike.  

Based on a working farm, you may get to see some of our animals, with piglets a regular occurrence from our Gloucester Old Spots. You can purchase farm produce from us, including our own eggs and milk from a local farmer. We sometimes have our own meat and veg for sale too.

Walk up the hill on either side of the campsite and you will come to open moorland with many walks, areas to explore and quite a few letter boxes to find!


Widecombe village is 1.5miles away, with a footpath from the farm to the main road in.

The village has a general store where you will find most essentials.

There are gift shops, a wonderful café and two pubs, Old Inn and Rugglestone in the village. 

Every Thursday from Easter to Christmas there is a craft market in the village which is well worth a visit and every 4th Saturday is the village market. 

Every second Tuesday of September the village holds its famous Widecombe Fair - well worth a visit!

Ashburton is 5 miles away, where you can find lots of local produce shops, a co-op, gift shops and more. There is an open air swimming pool and small museum. 

The campsite has a shower block with toilets and access to water. Dogs are welcome, but must be kept on a lead.

We are now allowing fires but off of the ground. Please either bring your own wood or buy from the site. To maintain the peaceful nature of the campsite, we ask for little to no music, which must be off by 10pm. You may be asked to turn the volume down or switch off if you are disturbing the quiet. 

No electric hook ups.
