A sheltered & tranquil park
We are a tranquil 16-acre Devon camping and touring park set in Dartmoor National Park beside the tinkling River Tavy.
Located just over 2-miles from Tavistock; Harford Bridge Park has been in family ownership since 1985. The park has evolved into a 5-star site with prestigious awards for quality, conservation, and environmental standards.
Free Wi-Fi for all guests, also a free Mobile App that’s content rich. Especially useful if you want to get the most from a holiday getaway in wonderful West Devon. Our location means the North & South Devon coasts are easily reached by A-class roads. Plymouth, ‘Britain’s ocean city’ is just 15-miles away with Dartmoor on the doorstep.
The park is sheltered in a bowl with the river running below Cox Tor and rolling grassy and wooded hills surrounding. The excellent Peter Tavy Inn is just 30-minutes’ walk to the picturesque moorland village. It’s a settlement given its name by St Peter’s church whose granite tower reaches above the slate roofed cottages and houses.
Quality camping & self-catering accommodation
Our family friendly park has spacious and level grass pitches (with or without electricity). Also there are riverside pitches or pitches by hedges and trees. Hard standings also available. We are dog friendly, cycle friendly and walker friendly and open from mid-March to end of October. The park is close to a bus route, cycle route and not far from the A386 Tavistock to Okehampton road.
Harford Bridge Park has quality self-catering accommodation. Our ‘Prestige’ self-catering holiday caravans have patios, Smart TVs, Wi-Fi boosters and storage boxes. Our special ‘Escape Pods’ have similar facilities and offer a cosy self-contained holiday space for 2 or 2+2. The special ambience of our traditional Shepherd’s Hut provides weatherproof “comfortable camping” for two with an outside field kitchen. Harford House is our 3-bedroom Dartmoor holiday cottage and is separate from the park with a private garden, but has access to all the on-park facilities.
Scenic with modern facilities
The park has an abundance of grass, trees, shrubs, and hedging. Dogs are welcome and a separate dog exercise field is provided so they can be let off the lead. The park is a Visit England five star graded holiday park with modern facilities that include a heated toilet block with showers and hot water included.

Ideally positioned for West Devon holidays
The park is ideally positioned for visiting Dartmoor, touring Devon, Cornwall, and the Tamar Valley and for visiting beaches on the north or south coast or just relaxing. Tavistock is a bustling Victorian market town with regular street and farmer’s markets. There are also varied indoor markets.

Hitherto it was an Abbey, a mining boom town and now a dynamic hub for commerce and social interchange.
