We have just come back from Barley Meadow with our friends and it was one of the best sites we have visited in the four years we have camped. The toilets are very clean and loads of hot water, small but comfortable, I never had to queue for a shower

It's a small site but really friendly and peaceful the grounds are immaculate and the owners are really friendly and helpful always around if you need to ask anything or buy from the shop. Lots of recycling facilites, A small games room (which we wern't sure about) having 3 children aged between 11 and 14 but they were entertain at the park and made friends easily.

You are allowed open fires and we hired one of their fire pits at £5 a night and logs at £4.50 a sack, it was lovely as we usually just burn a log in our bbq. We will keep this site in mind for the future as we didnt have long enough to visit all the walks we had planned out it was a pleasure and a wonderful weekend well done Barley Meadow keep up the good work.

A lovely site with excellent customer service. Toilet and Shower Facilities exceptionally clean and of a high quality. Fully equipped laundry room which also has a freezer for all campers to use. Games room has pool table, table football and books etc, there is also a playground. Enthusiastic owners with good local knowledge. Shop in reception stocks basics and the pre-ordered freshly baked croissants are a nice treat for breakfast! Pub and Shop in next village - Cheriton Bishop.
Chagford is worth a visit, lovely chocolate box village with local shops and a variety of places to eat. Nearest main town is Okehampton about 7 miles away, has Waitrose and Somerfield Supermarket if you need some supplies. Ideally placed for walking in Dartmoor. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this site.

I'm tempted to say this campsite was awful if only to stop others going! In reality it was really lovely - everything you could want. Small, but not cramped, great children's playground and playroom and clean toilets. Paul and Cath are the most amazing hosts - so kind and helpful and keen to ensure your stay is perfect. The morning croissants were gorgeous and it was very handy being able to hire bbqs and buy charcoal etc in the shop.
We didn't notice the fantastic views but that might have been our position - but it didn't matter - the site was very conveniently placed to visit some lovely places and explore the countryside. And the proximity to Okehampton made shopping for treats in Waitrose a doddle! We had dreadful weather whilst we were there and appreciated the 'batten down the hatches' warning from Paul the night of gales and rain! And our pitch drained well so it wasn't too bleak!

Would definitely recommend it and will definitely go back - if there's any room after leaving this review!

This is a lovely site with very good facilities. We visited over the Bank Holiday together with our daughter and family. The two pitches were ready for us when we arrived and we were quick to order the coffee and croissants for the next morning. The site was full and busy but we had a lovely welcome. Our grandson soon found the pool table in the games room while we took advantage of the hot showers. The field was immaculate and we had a handy but small dog walk behind us which our westie approved of.
There are lots of lovely pubs to eat in close by and many places to visit. On the edge of Dartmoor and just off the A30, it is easy to get to. We had the advantage of very good weather and it was good to see the children enjoying the good playground on site. There is a shop on site selling essentials and we found Okehampton a very good and interesting place to shop.
We will definitely return to this site possibly at a less busy time but can recommend it anytime.

This has got to be one of the nicest sites that I have ever stayed at!
 
We booked quite late and managed to secure the last tent pitch, so I was expecting it to be quite cramped. Not at all. It was very spacious and the pitch was easily big enough.
 
The owners were extremely accommodating, even reserved us pain au chocolat (or however it's spelt!) for breakfast.
 
They had BBQ pits for hire, which many people had taken them up on (I had brought my own but would have hired one!) and the shop was not at all over-priced, as you would usually expect.
 
The shower blocks were clean and big enough for a site of this size. There was also a games room, which I didn't check out, but kept all of the kids occupied.
 
We were visiting a friend in Exeter, so weren't really that bothered about where we ended up staying as long as it was close to the city, but I would certainly visit this site again on its own merit.

Stayed here for a few days in July.  The space allocated for tents is very generous, not too near anyone else.  The toilets and showers are excellent, we did not have to queue for any of the showers at any time despite in being July.  There is plenty of hot water and the blocks are cleaned often.
 
There is a good play area for children as well as a games room.
 
The campsite owners were very helpful, with tips of where to go for lunch, I would recommend going to the Fingle Bridge which feels like it's in the middle of nowhere but the pub serves an excellent lunch and there are lovely walks along the river.  The owners were also kind enough to lend us an extension lead for the electric as ours would not reach the power point.
 
There is a Mace/Spar shop about two miles away which is well stocked which is good as the next place with any other shops is 10 miles away in Exeter or Oakhampton which is 10 miles in the other direction. 
 
This campsite is great for touring Devon and not to far to go to visit the fishing villages in Cornwall, Fowey and Polperro are well worth a visit.
 
All in all an excellent Campsite, I would definitely go there again.
