About Callisham and Local Facilities

field 1

The campsite consists of two fields of approximately 100mtrs x100mtrs each.  Each field is considered as one site, afield 2lthough a small area in each field is available for Duke of Edinburgh Award Expedition teams.  The field nearest the gate is 'Field 1' and the field at the far end is 'Field 2'.  Water is provided by a private borehole there is one tap on site between the two fields.  There is an on-site facility for emptying chemical toilets, also located in field 1 and two sheds in each field which are used to house chemical toilets which are provided, please ensure these are cleaned after use


Trench/pit fires and grease traps are allowed on site, but area must be cleared and turf replaced after use.  Limited firewood can be found in the woodpiles.  There is absolutely NO access to the woods.  This condition has been imposed on us by the owner of the land The Forestry Commission.  The Forestry Commission regularly visits and inspect the woods.

The site is an ideal base for walking on Dartmoor, see the Dartmoor National Park website for more information on walking in Dartmoor.  It is also a good base for cycling, as cycle route 27 passes the gate to the campsite.  If you would like to hire bicycles while you are at the campsite Devon Cycle Hire will deliver them to the campsite for a small charge, with prior arrangement.Water based activities can be arranged through the District Water Activity Centre at Saltash Passage, and there is swimming in Tavistock.

Please note that the site is an unmanned site, though the warden can be contacted for any issues or queries and he will endeavour to come and visit during each booking.  A local farmer keeps an eye on the site and will inform the warden if there is any unauthorised camping or disturbances.

The nearest village is Yelverton (1 mile away) where basic supplies; including a co-op, a butcher as well as calor gas, camping gaz and petrol can be bought.  Please see Links for further details of shops etc in Yelvertonfire clipart
