Camping at Hole Station is unique, pitches are sited in private clearings located in a natural deciduous woodland - it's about as far from camping in a field as you can get. The peace, quiet and privacy you enjoy here is quite the eye opener for those who have previously only camped on sites that are 'open plan'.

There are 24 pitches in 23 acres of woodland so at night, sat by your campfire with a glass of plonk close to hand, gazing up at the stars (no light pollution here) you could be forgiven for thinking you have the place all to yourselves.

There are three styles of camping on offer.

The first is BYO which means you bring all your own gear. Every BYO pitch has its own kitchen shelter, simple bench and campfire pit. No two pitches are the same, and its self selection, so on arrival the first thing you do is have a wander and choose from those available. The site charge per person which means you can put up awnings, hammocks, multiple tents etc. without being hit with a bill for extras.

The second is Rent a Tent. All you need to bring is your bedding, torches, matches and a toiletry kit. Everything else is provided including a large, fully equipped wooden open fronted kitchen/dining shelter and of course a tent. Your tent has plenty of stand up headroom with a wood floor, two bedrooms and airbeds included. Although you have gas cooking facilities provided, if you really don't want to cook then don't – there is an onsite cafe for breakfasts and plenty of local pubs serving good food.

Lastly, a luxury Norwegian railway carriage from the 1920s sits in the meadow and is equipped with two bedrooms with ensuite, kitchen diner, sitting room and private outdoor platform.

Hole Station is also one of those rare places when mums and dads can have some grown up time together - no under 18's ( Adult only doesn't mean naturism. It just means no kids).

Reviews of Hole Station Campsite

We have now stayed twice at Hole Station, the first time in 2009. The best thing about Hole Station has to be the woodland pitches,lovely and private! Since our first visit stone tracks have been laid through the woods to the pitch areas, a worthwhile improvement. Facilities are basic but do the job (the showers are better than ours at home), it's the eco loos that raise newbies eyebrows, but they work fine and there is no odour. The loo/shower block is always kept clean. We are keen walkers and cyclists, and there are plenty of nearby places to do both, the Tarka Trail, Granite Way on Dartmoor, and a public footpath with walks through beautiful countryside start at the site entrance. Liz the campsite owners wife lent us local OS maps which are kept in reception. Camp fire kits are popular and good value (ours lasted 2 nights).
If you want a quiet time in lovely wild woodland surroundings the this site ticks all the boxes.
Hole Station won't suit you if you want all mod cons, because there aren't any!
