Runnage Farm offers camping facilities in Postbridge near Yelverton in Devon. The farm is nestled in the beautiful Dartmoor National Park and is a working farm. There is a stream and small lakes on the farm so children must be accompanied/supervised by an adult at all times.
Basic shower and toilet facilities are available and there are no marked of fixed pitches for tents.
We sell our own beef/lamb burgers, lamb chops and lamb steaks along with disposable barbeques and firewood. Small campfires are allowed at our discretion on existing fire pits only. Creating new fire pits and removal of stones from walls are expressly forbidden and anything becoming "out of control" will be extinguished! Allowing fires on campites is unusual, please accept and respect our rules!
Dogs are welcome at Runnage Farm but we do not allow them anywhere inside the buildings. They MUST be kept on a lead and cleaned up after.
Booking in advance is essential especially during busy times, please telephone for availability.
We have our herd of Dartmoor ponies, which live most of their life roaming free on the moors. However, each year they are collected in the annual drift, given a full health check and the foals identified ready for sale.
Camping barns and a bunkhouse are also available - please see website for more details.
Postbridge is a wonderful collection of houses, farms and smallholdings. It takes its name from the famous clapper bridge for which it is perhaps best known. About 150 people live in homes that make up the village built all are spread out over quite a distance. Residents who live in smaller collections of dwellings, such as Bellever and Challacombe, and more remote places like Parsons Cottage and Stannon also consider themselves a part of Postbridge making the village about 4 miles long and a mile wide! Although there is no centre of the village in the traditional sense, the bridges, the post office and stores and the East Dart (local pub) are certainly the focus for visitors and residents alike. St. Gabriel's church and the village hall all within walking distance of Runnage Farm, about 15-20 minutes. Isolated at altitude is the famous Warren House Inn, a more strenuous walk of about 2 miles.
