We stayed here for 10 nights during July/Aug 2012. The campsite is lovely, with great views, facilities and really friendly owners.

The levels are quite flat, although the campsite itself is generally on a slope, we had plenty of flat room to pitch our tent though.

The bathrooms were new this year and are really nice, the family bathrooms made things so much easier with our 2 year old.

Owners are very friendly and approachable and ocme round each day to check on everyone.

Hope Cove is about a 20 min walk away and my husband and son were there at 6. 30 one morning when he woke up early, it was beautiful.

The only thing that would make it better would maybe be a small children's play area, a few swings and a slide, however there is lots of room for kids to play without getting in anyone's way.

Overall a great site, we will definitely be making a return visit in the next few years.

This is a beautiful campsite close to Hope Cove and South Milton Sands.

We visited over half term with friends and pitched in Divers Terrace, a secluded pair of pitches bounded by hedges, which was great.

Plus points:

- Level pitches with lots of hedges for shelter

- New shower block (showers 20p/min) with four showers and six wcs in each, plus one family and one disabled room.

- New washing up room / laundry room with three washers a dryer and an iron!

- Hot meals available from the main house each evening which was great for our first night.

Minus points

- Single track road with passing places leading up to it, which must be a nightmare with a caravan.

- For some reason the electric hook ups kept going off, which is a problem if you've got children watching a dvd at the time!

There's a lot to do in the immediate area come rain or shine. Kingsbridge has a small old-fashioned cinema and an Art cafe for rainy days, plus several lovely cafes and restaurants.

Despite being literally blown away I'd happily recommend this site. You can't blame the site for the weather!

NIce location and friendly welcome from owners. Pitches are terraced and reasonably flat, it seemed to drain well and believe me it needed to. Toilets we were close but a long walk if your in the bottom field, in fact people drove! they are newly updated and were clean and showers were hot. Agree with other feedback wash room hot water run out at peak times. Shop is well stocked and take away menu was excellent. Only negative was the weather and 70mph winds that caused us to leave early but that's camping in Britain.

Nice site and the owner is very friendly and helpful. The downside for us with our small caravan were the narrow lanes, reversing is not an option. We had a very nice pitch, level and reasonably private along a row of other vans and tents.

New washroom facilities and the washing up no longer has coin operation for hot water. Showers do! Downside, showers and wash up occasionally ran out of hot water. Various rumours of the tank run out or thermostat problems.

Also the electric was very unreliable in the evenings. Site owner said campers were running heaters but returning campers said it was always the same each year. Due to these issues we will not be returning to this site.

Value for money - not good when having to pay for showers which were unreliable on hot water or for an electric pitch where it cut out every evening at least 3 or 4 times.

Just returned from a very soggy Jubilee weekend at Karrageen. We'll definitely return as it would be stunning in good weather.

Owners worked very hard to keep the facilities clean in the wet weather. Campsite was draining well so still serviceable despite the days of heavy rain. We were still able to tow our folding camper out of the lower hollow with our front wheel drive car, but the owner had already offered to help with his 4X4 if needed.

Great campsite in a beautiful location. Full all weekend but still felt very spacious.

Brand new (or fully refurbished) toilet block inc. Family room with baby bath, washing machines etc.

Shop and take away on site.

My wife and I spent Easter week at Karrageen after seeing what a lovely location it enjoys.

The site was undergoing a toilet/shower block refurbishment at the time we were there but best part finished so not a problem. Only niggle was having to pay for the showers, something we have never entertained when choosing a site to stay at. The reason is because the water is spring fed, however I don't know how that warrants charging for showers.

The pitches are fairly level with good drainage, a good job as we had some heavy rain during our stay.

The shop/reception has a few basic items to get you by if needs be and also offers hot meals in the evening.

As has been mentioned by other reviews the sites electrics are really not up to scratch and resulted in the owner often coming round to see what appliances everyone was using. This became very annoying especially when the gentleman asked to see our kettle!

We lost power regularly in the evenings and the site was not even full.

For this reason we would not return here unless the electrics are upgraded.
