We visited this site with others last week. Despite the poor weather this summer the ground was not too bad it must be fairly well drained, although luckily we were on one of the higher fields. The pitches are large but very regimented. It is a very big site and as we were on field 4 a long way from the shop, reception, pool, playground and family bathroom which was a difficulty with lots of small children in our party.

Overall the shower/toilet facilities were very clean but there is only one bath for children which seems a shame on such a large site and you have to pay 50p for the hot water there where as on the rest of the site it is free.

The pool is very good and fairly inexpensive. The Petorama is quite expensive and the outdoor play facilities could be improved. The shop seemed well-stocked.

The area is very good with lovely beaches at Woolacombe and Croyde. There is a large supermarket on the outskirts of Ilfracombe and Barnstaple is within fairly easy distance.

Unfortunately the weather let us down during our visit but I have to say North Devon in our experience can be wet . A lot! The site was good although a bit large for my taste. We were in the furthest field from the facilities and it was a good 15 minute walk (3 minute drive!).

The pitches were in good condition and thank goodness we were backed right up a large hedge which meant we were protected to a degree from the wind which whipped across the site. Several people lost awnings and many in tents gave up and went home! The swimming pool was good and very clean but due to the weather it was very busy. There's a reasonable sized Tesco's in Ilfracombe, we just wished it stocked a few more dvd's.Moaning about the weather again!

Nearby are Watermouth Castle which is oaky for kids up to 12, any older and they get bored. The Milky Way and the Big Sheep are also worth a visit as is the Dinosaur Park in Coombe Martin but they're all geared towards kids under 14.

The shop on site is good with a very chirpy portly gentleman running it. There is also a very good camping shop on site to cater for the large numbers of people who store their vans at the site.

All in all a good site

Spent a week here in April. Fantastic special offer - 39! Lovely site with loads of facilities including indoor swimming pool, 2 bars, restaurant, take-away, caravan accessories shop and general shop. Shower block was very clean but a bit cold due to lack of heating. Showers were plentiful and we did not have to queue. Very nice indoor pool. Horse riding was also good - kids really enjoyed this.

Very large site with fantastic views all around. Large pitches but ours was really slopey so chocks and lots of levelling blocks needed! Fantastic area with Woolacombe, Croydd & Saunton nearby where there are some of the best beaches in the UK. Ilfracombe while pleasant beginning to look a little tired. Combe Martin itself is very pleasnt and well worth a visit (10 min drive).

All in all, very good site in great location. They also sell new & second-hand caravans and have caravan technicians on hand should you have any problem! Pretty much the complete site.

Just come back from a week at Stowford - we went on recommendation of a friend. I have to say that there were no problems at all with the site. The facilities were plentiful - bars, swimming pool, kids play area, restaurant etc. The toilets and showers were very clean and the staff pleasant, but this site just wasn't for us.
Although the pitches were quite large it felt very claustrophobic as most pitches had caravans on them and they all looked very regimented. There were not many campers at all. Nowhere to freeze ice packs - you will have to hire them from the camp shop and be charged 2.00 deposit per ice pack and then a further 50p for small and 80p for large ice packs.
Anyway, the area is fantastic. Beach at Woolacombe is stunning. Great day out at the Gnome Reserve - massive amounts of laughing at the adults in gnome hats! Dont bother going to Quince Honey Farm - its very expensive to get in, staff unhelpful, no one to answer questions and after 15 minutes its all over!
Lynton and Lydmouth were stunning and well worth a visit. Try the site if you like large sites with lots of facilities then this will be for you.

We've just bought our first motorhome (after being 'tenters' for 3 years) and this was our first trip out - in view of the horrible weather forecast (typical British Bank Holiday!), we wanted a site which had plenty of facilities so that we didn't actually have to go anywhere if we didn't want to.
This site had caravan sales and an accessory shop, which was very useful - the pitch was sloping so we had to buy some blocks. We had a hardstanding in field 5, and were close to the toilet and shower facilities which were excellent. Very clean, plenty of shower and toilet cubicles and showers were on a motion sensor so no button pressing!
Pool and changing rooms clean, although of course the pool was busy in view of the dodgy weather. In peak seasons, I note that they have a serious swimmer and toddler session in the morning, which is useful.
The fish & chip shop was reasonably priced, and food was good - helped by fact that they were very busy so all food was very fresh (compliments to the staff - excellent service under pressure!). There was a carvery in the restaurant next door, but looked like quite a wait which was why we went for the takeaway option - don't know what other food they do.
There is a nice country walk from the site - the sun came out for us which was lovely! Unfortunately we got a bit lost coming back so ended up on a detour all around the site - the other fields seemed noiser, so I would probably ask for field 5 again.
All in all very pleasant break - all the staff we dealt with were friendly and helpful - my only small criticism would be the time by which we had to vacate the pitch - I think 10am is a bit early, but fortunately we didn't have to worry about packing a tent! Didn't go off site so can't comment on surrounding area, but would definitely visit again.

On arrival I was impressed by the private drive and by the eight staff in reception waiting to help. We were in field 5 which is the furthest away from the center on hard standing. I have to say that almost all of the pitches were very big but on a 20 degree slope which required blocks on blocks on more blocks to get level. The site was in great condition and had good views all around.

The toilet blocks were good too. The petorama was okay but one trip was enough. The pool was good but busy as it was so windy and cold. We had a meal at the restaurant which was really nice but it shuts at 8pm. The shop was very well stocked and open all day 6 days a week. Bitten by the bug we visited the caravan sales shop and they must be very busy as they had no time for me at all and lost a sale expecting me to wait for 3 hours on my holiday to spend my money! All in all a great site close to some great beaches and towns.
