Friendly Camping and Caravanning on the southern gateway to the Dartmoor National Park

Our 2021 Season will begin from Monday 12th April 2021 and will run to 31st October 2021.


Situated on the South Dartmoor boarder, the gateway to the Dartmoor National Park is a peaceful location making Oakmoor Touring Park the perfect place to relax and unwind, away from the stresses of everyday life. This site is a family-run park in a rural position next to the Chudleigh Knighton Heath Nature Reserve and just a half mile off road walk through the heath to Chudleigh Knighton village, the Claycutters Arms pub and village shops.

This dog-friendly campsite has 48 sheltered pitches for tents and tourers. Bordering the Devon Wildlife Trust Chudleigh Knighton Heath Nature Reserve, Oakmoor Touring Park offers spacious pitches and good facilities. Perfect for families, cyclists, ramblers and explorers in this outdoor haven.

Relax as you browse this website and see if what we offer is right for you. We would love to welcome you to the campsite and it is our aim to do all that we can to ensure you enjoy your stay with us.

Our Beliefs

Our aim as a team is to give you an enjoyable stay whilst you visit us. The team is headed by Debbie Howlett with support from her husband Allan and our other family members and of course assisted by our 7 grandchildren.

Being next to the Chudleigh Knighton Heath Nature Reserve in such a beautiful location, we know we have to live in harmony with our environment. The whole team takes great pride in this beautiful part of Devon. The site is visited regularly by many species of wildlife including deer, wild ducks, rabbits, buzzards, owls, pheasants, many different wild birds, greater horseshoe bats and you may even hear the woodpeckers in the distance. We are constantly seeking better ways to work in harmony with all around us and at the same time maintain the high standards of service and care in the business.

We believe we can offer a safe and peaceful retreat where you can share this beautiful area and connect with its tranquility and nature, enjoy the quality time with friends and family and loads of fresh Devon air, and relax and recharge amidst the green fields and traditional hedgerows

Our Story...

Campsite

Leave your troubles and concerns behind and enjoy some fresh Devon air and quality time to relax and recoup. Wake to the songs of birds and tempting cooking smells from camp stoves that gets your mouth watering in anticipation for that first taste. Oakmoor provides the ideal environment where you can release the tension from the hubbub and bedlam of everyday life, spend quality time with loved ones and relax in the stunning scenery.

There are 48 spaciously laid out pitches in this sheltered green field. The generous layout and the abundance of open space gives you a feeling of being at one with nature. We are open between Easter and October. The site is found along a beautiful rural track with the nature reserve woodland on your right and open meadows on your left, so instead of traffic noise you can relax to the traditional sounds of the countryside. However, we are situated less than eight minutes’ walk from the village of Chudleigh Knighton with its pub and shop and on the gateway to the moor, you've got all that you need for a wonderful holiday with plenty to explore for all ages.

We know how important your dogs are to you. As dog owners ourselves, we understand that you would want them to share happy holidays with you. They can't be left unattended on the campsite, however, there are a number of dog-friendly pubs and attractions near-by so you can enjoy a day out or a nice pub meal in the evening with the dog by your side.

We ask all dog owners to be responsible and to clean up after their dogs at all times and children taking the dog for a walk on-site must be accompanied by an adult who can control the dog fully and is willing to clean up any mess.

Your dogs must remain on leads at all times while on the site, but there are plenty of places nearby your dog can roam off-lead and enjoy the fun of the Devon countryside.

Pitches

Site Map

Pitches

Here at Oakmoor we are keen to ensure that you feel comfortable and relaxed on your pitch, to know that you have plenty of space around you for safety reasons and also for your own relaxation, pleasure and peace of mind. Our pitches are all generous sizes, larger than the standard camping or caravan pitch dimensions you'll find on many club sites.

Large Harding-Standing Pitches

These are generously-sized pitches with a hard-core type of surface for the car and the caravan or motorhome and a large grassed area at the side. They have an electric hook-up point close-by and there will be a water tap within easy walking distance.

The large hard-standing pitches are suitable for touring caravans, tents, campervans and motorhomes, subject to unit size and pitch availability.

Large All-Grass Pitches

These are generously-sized all-grass pitches with an electric hook-up point close-by plus a water tap within easy walking distance.

The large all-grass pitches are suitable for touring caravans, tents, and campervans, subject to availability. Motorhomes can be pitched on all-grass pitches subject to and dependent upon the weight of the unit and the weather conditions.

Hiker Spaces

Being located very close to the Moor, we welcome hikers. There are many walks to explore and so our facilities are usually a most welcome relief for these exhilarated yet tired guests. There are some spaces where we can accommodate 1 or 2 man tents. You don't need to book in advance... just call 01364 654 199 and we will be sure to find you somewhere to rest and recuperate.
