Welcome to Lakemoor

 

From February 2019 Lakemoor has new owners!

We are Claire & Justin and we will be sharing this new adventure with our daughters. We are very excited about the different opportunities available at Lakemoor.  However we do not want to rush into any camping/glamping ideas, we have decided to get to know the area and really understand what will work well for our guests first.  So we have decided to close the campsite until Summer 2020.

We will keep you updated through our facebook page Lakemoor and if you have any questions please contact me info@lakemoor.co.uk

But if you would like to find out about the site now please carry on reading…..

(P.S. from the 1st April we will be renting out the house for short breaks, the link will be here as soon as it is ready)

 

ABOUT LAKEMOOR

Lakemoor is set in the heart of Devon’s stunning Taw Valley, with unique lakeside cabins, riverside camping & level hardstandings with hook-up, and a wealth of wildlife.

Nestled alongside the River Taw, Flashdown Wood and Eggesford Forest, halfway between Exmoor & Dartmoor, 3 miles from the historic town of Chulmleigh and a 10 minute walk to Eggesford Station on the Tarka Line running from Barnstaple to Exeter. A perfect base for exploring the countryside and beaches, or just stay here and relax!!

OUR ETHOS

At Lakemoor we strive to take better care of our planet, stocking local products, and connecting guests with local suppliers.

Our structures are built from environmentally sound and/or recycled materials (wherever possible), the Lakeside Cabins are off grid and Riverside Meadow is semi-wild, with only a composting toilet and firebowls.

We’ve planted 500 trees for a camping woodland, through a grant from the Woodland Trust.

WHAT OUR GUESTS THINK

“Beautiful location. The riverside and lake were so peaceful, with electric blue damsel flies, woodpecker, kingfisher and heron.

This peaceful place was just what we needed after a week of travelling from one place to another. We enjoyed the charming hut, ecofriendly environment, useful utensils, funny goats, the lake and river, the clean and hot shower & the personal touch it all has.

Such a beautiful and peaceful retreat! The location was amazing as was the campsite and teepee. Would definitely recommend for a quiet getaway in peaceful surroundings!

Excellent campsite, great location, would return!
