We stayed for a short break at the end of July (without the kids this time!), during some lovely weather.

The campsite itself is situated towards the end of a long typical Devon road, ie. narrow, so perhaps not for the faint-hearted. Very beautiful surrounding countryside and a 20 minute walk down to the sea.

The site itself is on a slope but most of the pitches have been levelled so this did not appear to be an issue. Lots of landscaping makes it an attractive site, with some pitches having a view to the sea.

Our pitch (Number 2) was in a little wooded area with space for just two tents and was very tranquil.

It looks like a big site, but even when full there was probably half the number of pitches I have seen on other similar sized sites, so plenty of room.

There was a little shop at the farmhouse selling all essentials and also doing a nice hot-food takeaway.

The toilet block was adequate, with minimal queues for the showers even at peak times. Seemed mostly clean. The only niggle was the need for 20p pieces for the showers and any hot water for washing up, but this does mean that people don't spend hours in the shower, and a 4minute shower (40p) is actually plenty long enough.

I did not see any play areas for kids, but the kids that were on the site were having a nice time playing football (masses of space for this without bothering anybody) or just running around the site (again without bothering anybody).

The owners were very friendly and welcoming, and a first for us, actually came by on the day we were leaving to thank us for coming to stay.

Thoroughly recommend and will be back.

Hope Cove and Salcombe well worth a visit, but recommend using the Park and Ride if going to Salcombe as parking is a nightmare in the town itself.

The Cream of Devon Campsites

As a couple, my wife and I have always previously booked on much smaller sites with a lower number of pitches than Karrageen, so it was with slight trepidation that we booked earlier this year.

As soon as we arrived our fears began to be laid to rest. The site has 70 pitches for touring tents and caravans plus a fair number of static caravans available to book as well. A good number of the touring pitches have electric hook ups. Yet despite this sounding quite large, the site has been wonderfully terraced and landscaped with plenty of trees and hedges; which gives the feeling that you are on a much smaller site.

The camp-site is excellently maintained by Phil and Nikki and their “team”, Phil walks round every day at least once to check if there are any problems, to offer assistance or just to chat to see how your holiday is going (Nikki is from Leicester so we often discussed our common knowledge of the city and the rugby team with Phil).

Facilities on the site are very good, despite the site being full when we stayed; neither my wife nor myself had to wait for a shower, basin or toilet once during the week. The showers do require multiples of 20p per two minutes but if you plan for this it is not a problem.

Contrary to another review read, there are plenty of water points scattered round the site and the electric supply was fine during our stay. The shop on site has everything you would need for your stay - food, toiletries, camping sundries and it’s licensed too, so if you’ve forgotten the wine for celebrating putting the tent up, they have a good selection to help you out. We made good use of the take away service they provide, having lovely pain au chocolate, baguettes and a Chicken Jalfrezi, all delicious and very fairly priced, as is everything in the shop.

We would highly recommend taking in a sunset from the top field.

Hope Cove is just a mile away and it is a very pleasant walk indeed (although uphill on the way back)

In short - The pitches are great, the views amazing and the hosts are wonderful. The perfect recipe for the cream of Devon campsites.

We had just recently purchased a caravan and decided to visit this site after seeing it advertised.

We had a very warm welcome from the owners. They were very helpful with advise on walks and places to visit in the area.

The shop was well stocked and the takeaway was excellent. We used it twice during our stay. Good selection and reasonable priced.

The toilets were kept clean and I didn't mind paying the 20p for a shower. You had plenty of time and the water was hot.

There was a lovely walk down to Hope Cove. Plenty of places to eat here too.

We also visited Salcombe and could recommend the fishmongers. Beautiful fresh fish.

Bigbury-on-Sea was a long walk, but worth the visit.

We shall visit this site again.

I am disappointed to report that things were left wanton in the quality department at Karrageen during our 1 week stay in July.

Remembering that it costs £27. 00 per night, I don't think it is unfair to arrive with reasonably high expectations - especially if the content of the website is to be believed.

Yes, the location is stunning however cleanliness was very poor in the toilet blocks, paying for hot washing up water seems somewhat frugal and we weren't offered a refund for the two nights we had to cancel at short notice due to a family illness, despite returning the £1 of 20p's we borrowed for the showers - it is the small things that make a difference and a memorable holiday.

I am sure if the solar powered lights are un-gaffer taped from the cherry trees, the pitches rotated so that the grass can recuperate, general site cleanliness improved and the 20p for 2 minutes hot water relaxed to say 3 or 4, then it will be a fine place to stay.

We have just returned from a long weekend and we are already thinking of going back to this site.

As other people have already stated the site owner Phil is very helpful and pleasant making sure your stay with them is a comfortable as possible. The weather when we arrived was looking a decidedly mixed with some high winds, Phil advised us to pitch up towards the bottom of the field where it was nice and sheltered.

The site has a maze of hedges which gives you a nice feeling of seclusion even when there are tents nearby. The facilities are a little tired but more than adequate and more importantly they were clean. We made use of the family shower room which was perfect for our 7mth old baby.

The take away menu which you can order from the shop is comprehensive, we only ordered one night and we thought it was great as we couldn't be bothered to cook ourselves.

All in all a great site, we are looking forward to returning there very soon!

Lovely site, the on site shop sells all sorts of things and even offers a takeaway service with an extensive menu, it even offers freshly baked bread etc on mornings for collection.

The pitches are all of a large size-I have a large awning and was concerned that we wouldn't fit-but we had space to spare!

The facilities are nice and clean, though the showers are a bit annoying. 20p for 4/5 mins, though I suppose this keeps the queues down a bit-only problem is remembering to keep the 20p's when getting change in town!

Local pub is a fair walk away but the walk with the views is enough to make it worthwhile.

The campsite is quite big too, and good for groups to come visit.
