What's nearby?: 
Harford Bunkhouse and Camping is right on Dartmoor, with moor than enough stuff in the area for all ages and inclinations, including poking around tiny traditional villages, farm sites and zoos, old houses and ancient castles, and active options like watersports, climbing, hiking and biking. And hacking: Ivybridge has a couple of riding schools for group and private lesson, and there are miles of bridleways, old byways and moorland routes around Dartmoor. Seeing the Dartmoor ponies is also a must (aw, so cute): you’ll spot them all over the moors even if driving, but if you or the kids want to get up close, pony treks are available from several companies, and the Original Miniature Pony Centre at Moretonhamstead gives kids the chance to take a better look (double check opening times before you book as they have seasonal opening). Also nearby for mini naturalists is the Dartmoor Zoological Park, subject of the book and film We Bought a Zoo and housing big cats, monkeys, snakes and plenty more from around the globe; and the National Marine Aquarium less than ten miles away in Plymouth. Three top walking trails are within a couple of miles of Harford Bunkhouse: the Erme Valley Trail, the Erme-Plym Trail and the Two Moors coast to coast Way from Ivybridge on the south coast to Lynmouth, Exmoor on the north. This in turn connects at various places to other long-distance paths including the Tarka Trail, the South West Coast Path and the Dartmoor Way. Walking too much faff? Cast off peacefully with the fishing opps in the area, from guided fly fishing trips on Dartmoor to fishing for salmon and trout on the River Erme.
