In the heart of Dartmoor National Park, where the trees stand tall, the rivers flow and the roads bend, you’ll find the beautiful Langstone Manor Holiday Park.
With camping pods, mega glamping pods, touring, motor-home and tent pitches, cottages and static caravans, it makes the perfect UK holiday getaway, whether it’s for one night or even seven. Travelling as a couple, as friends or with your kids, the Langstone family and their team welcome everyone to their lovely Devon holiday destination!
Our amazing Mega Pod stay
Brand new to 2019, we felt so honoured and excited to be offered a stay in a Mega Pod at Langstone Manor. We have once before stayed in a Glamping Pod, but simply didn’t compare to the luxury we had last weekend at the Langstone Mega Pod!
If you love camping but are looking for a change, but don’t quite fancy a hotel room, a Mega Pod could be just what you’re looking for. Beautifully laid out with a double bed, an L shape sofa-bed which pulls out into a double sofa-bed, TV, dining table and chairs, kitchenette (fridge, kettle, microwave, sink), en-suite toilet – and to top it all off, a patio with table and chairs and a Masonry BBQ!
The whole Pod was very clean and well-kept from top to bottom, with the toilet room being very modern with a heated towel rail. I think for most people, the main concern is the comfiness of the bed, and let me tell you we were not disappointed. We had such a lovely sleep both nights, with the help of being surrounded with pure silence in the evening, other than the faint sound of birds chirping – bliss.
What made the Mega Pods stand out for us, was being able to come back after a day of adventuring, kick off our muddy boots, get into our comfy clothes and lighting our private BBQ. Food and drinks for sunset just topped the day off perfectly, as the last warm glows of the sun beamed down directly onto our patio.
We are still in complete awe of our whole experience, so will definitely be considering booking at Langstone Manor for the summer this year!
Why visit Dartmoor?
Dartmoor National Park is very unique with its rare wildlife, rich history, deep river valleys and incredible landmarks. You will never be stuck for things to do, hikes to walk or places to explore. Castles, mountain peaks, forests, rivers, reservoirs, ruins and mystery rock formations – you name it!
You can find an abundance of granite boulders, rocks and cliffs for miles which form a lot of the Park, dating back to over 300 million years ago – mind-blowing! A reason to visit on it’s own. The park Authority work hard with local farmers, communities and organisations to help conserve this stunning landscape just for us.
Being one of the 10 National Parks in England, and one of the 15 in the UK, it’s not to be missed and should be visited this summer!
What can I do in the local area?
Do any of these sound like something you’d love do? Stroll by the reservoir, picnic in the forest by the river, hike to reach a huge waterfall, explore medieval ruins, get up-close with goats at a farm, see Tigers and Lions at the zoo? We say yes to all of them! Dartmoor really does have it all and to make it easy for you, we have created a bespoke map for you on Google Maps and pinpointed our favourite points of interest.
We have also added some personal recommendations from the Langstone Manor team, on local places for a pint after your long day of exploring; the Peter Tavy Inn and The Whitchurch Inn.
Just click here to view the map – the red marker is to mark Langstone Manor, with all the blue markers being attractions with corresponding symbols. If you have any questions regarding the map and the locations just drop a comment at the end of this article and we’ll be more than happy to help!

We would love to conclude by saying how perfect Langstone Manor made our couples stay for the weekend. We’re not quite sure how any other accommodation in Dartmoor will now compare to the Mega Pod, so will definitely be our go to place for the foreseeable future! Big thanks to the Langstone Manor team for having us.
We cannot recommend the Park and the Mega Pods enough, so get booking for the summer while there’s still availability and we know you won’t be disappointed! If you do visit, we’d love to hear about it so drop us a comment to tell us about your stay 🙂
All the best as always & happy travels,
