This is a pretty campsite in a great area for a holiday. Fab beaches all around.

The shower block was very clean but you do need to pay for your shower and washing up water. The showers are quite small with some cubicles having no hooks. The family room was a god send but again very little hooks or shelves to hang or place your stuff to stop it getting wet!

The campsite is lovely and quiet with clear quietening down at 10pm which is such a relief. The pitches were not that spacious, our guy lines were touching those of one of our neighbours. We changed our booking spec and had to pay the extra for having a tent longer than 6 metres, but were placed on the same pitch as previously booked.

I would book again as so lovely and quiet.

Just returned from 3 nights at Karageen. Site is well placed although road access is a bit narrow if taking motorhomes or caravans.

Big down side was the price. Wouldn't have been so bad if the showers and dish washing were free, but there was a minimum cost of 40p per shower and 20p for dish washing.

However, good walks along coast path and only 1 mile from Hope cove, which is gorgeous. We were lucky with the weather which was very sunny. All level grass pitches but on a sloped site which would have been difficult had it been wet.

Owner very friendly. Note: Will only take cash so don't expect to pay with card if you arrive on spec as we did.

Only one shower and toilet block so could be a long trek for some and busy at times if site is full.

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.
