Higher Longford Farm is a very special place being situated within Dartmoor National Park. We offer you panoramic views of Dartmoor, space to think and peace and quiet. By day watch the buzzards spiral up and up on the moorland breeze. After dark wonder at the pure night sky for from here you can see the Milky Way.

Open all year If you do not bring your own accommodation with you, why not stay in one of our self catering, stone-built chalets. These all have a shower, toilet and fully-equipped kitchen. A colour television and heater provide a home away from home at any time of the year. When you have to supply your own catering needs, the shop has a huge selection of goods.

Everything from all those little things you forgot to bring, to daily supplies of fresh milk, bread and eggs. A public telephone box is near the shop.
If you wish to bring your pets, dogs are quite welcome on the site - on leads! An exercise field is well signposted where our canine friends can be let off their leads for a carefree romp.

Higher Longford Farm nestles on one of the gentle foothills immediately beneath Dartmoor. You may never wish to use your car whilst on holiday, preferring instead to explore the moorland paths, lanes and pretty rivers.
However, nearby is Tavistock (2.5 miles) a charming and ancient Stannary town. Its individual shopping arcades and frequent markets are well worth visiting. There is also a leisure pool offering fun for all the family.
The City of Plymouth is only a mere 13 miles away for that shopping trip, or a whole range of attractions from the historic sights of the Barbican and Plymouth Hoe to the modern and influential Theatre Royal and the Pavilions leisure centre, which offers something for everyone in all weathers. Plymouth also has a fine selection of restaurants and night spots for your enjoyment .
Princetown, the home of the historic Dartmoor Jail, is about five miles away. Also here is the National Park's main visitor centre and one or two rather good pubs.
If you are a sportsman, several golf courses are local to the area and also fishing can be enjoyed in the local streams or coarse fishing in the private lake nearby.

A friendly welcome awaits you throughout the year.You can enjoy the benefits of staying on a small family-run park which prides itself upon providing a natural and well maintained environment for campers and caravaners away from commercialisation.
The children can also expend their energies in our play area, or on the park as a whole, in the ample space available.
An evening on the site can be enjoyed in the restaurant, which caters for all tastes serving hot foods, vegetarian dishes and, of course, childrens portions. Take-away food is also readily available .
Our licensed bar and family room will allow you to relax and is only a short walk from your accommodation.
There is lots to do and see in the area. The seaside is about an hour away and of course the National Park surrounds us. Explore the marvellous wild expanse of Dartmoor with its myths, legends and mysterious happenings!
A short stroll will whet your appetite to experience more - maybe on one of the guided hikes arranged by the local National Park Ranger, or you could try the fascinating Dartmoor challenge of Letterboxing.
If you wish to take it a little easier, trek over the moor on horseback from one of the nearby riding stables. Many sights can be enjoyed by using the road system over the moors, ideal for hiking as well as driving your car. These roads can take vou to many villages and places of interest throughout the moor. But please remember to drive carefully there are many famous wild Dartmoor ponies running free.
