Teign House

Teign House

Our first visit to Teign House, Devon.

Being a fairly new member of Tamar DA I didn’t know where Teign House was or what to expect when I got there.

Teign House InnI had asked my fellow campers before going where Teign House was, what was there and what was it like.

I got a variety of answers to these questions ranging from a beautiful good priced site, a quiet site, a terrible bendy road for miles and miles to get to the site, to the grass is so long on the site you will need to wear your wellies.

Colin and I discussed whether or not to go to the meet and we decided we would go and see for ourselves.  I must admit I wasn’t looking forward to the bendy approach road or the long grass, especially if it was wet.

We set off on Friday 9th May for Teign House, yes the access road was bendy once you came off the A38 but Colin enjoys a challenge and it wasn’t any worse than other places we have visited over the years.

The site when we arrived Friday evening was a delight.  Hazel and Ian Howe the stewards for the weekend, were there waiting to greet us and to tell us everything we wanted to know like where the tap was, and they also told us that the pub did takeaway fish and chips if we were interested.  We were certainly interested in fish and chips and I can testify they were very nice too.

To my relief the sites grass was short (it was even shorter than our grass at home) and I wouldn’t need wellies yippee.

On one side of the site there was a river (ideal for paddling in, as we were to witness during the very hot weather we had) on the other side was the pub or a short stroll to country lanes if you wanted to explore further afield.

I cannot put into words to say how beautiful the setting was, we didn’t have electric but that wasn’t a problem for a couple of days, the fees were great at £10 for the weekend and the peace and quiet and the beautiful weather and great company were a plus.

On Saturday Hazel and Ian put on a cream tea for whoever wanted to join them and they raised £35 for the DA charity and on the Sunday we had the usual coffee morning.  I must say I came away on Sunday really glad we had made the choice to visit this site for ourselves and if the DA go to this site again we will certainly be going there again.  Click here for our photos.
