Site has great views and very close to Hope Cove which is beautiful and brilliant for kayaking but if you are towing a caravan- find somewhere else. The lanes you have to negotiate are very narrow and if you meet something else towing from the opposite direction I don't know what you would be able to do(one twin axle caravan arrived with his back lights smashed and his awning rail hanging off back of van). We met cars and it was very difficult in parts to pass.Very stressful.

Toilets basic and quite a walk for some pitches and you have to remember to save your 20p coins for the showers.

The location of this site is fantastic, being a lovely stroll down to Hope Cove or along the coastal paths.

The grass pitch itself was level with plenty of room for the full size awning and we were helped by the friendly owner.

However, the whole site suffered from power cuts during two of the 4 days we were there. When we asked what was wrong, we were told by the owners wife that the site was full and everyone was using their electrics

Shower/toilet blocks were as mentioned in other reviews - tired and in need of updating.

There was no dog walking facilities or dog bins (that we could find).

Overall, a great location but beware of the sites limitations.

We found that this site was well managed and with personal attention from the owner. The pitches were well looked after and shelter from wind by tree lined pitches. The shop was adequate and the take aways from the kitchen were very good as we had take aways several times to save cooking ourselves as the weather was a little wet and drainage of the pitches was quite good.

We found that being a dog friendly site it was a little disappointing that we had to exercise our dog off site which meant walking around the very narrow lanes and was quite dangerous on some occasions and a lack of dog bins around.

The toilets although clean and adequate were a little out dated and could do with modernising the price of having a shower at 60 pence for 6 mins found to be a little steep.

Laundry and washing up facilities were also quite expensive. But all in all we found this site suitable for our type of camping quite and with good views and a good base to visit local beauty spots.

A really friendly site with level pitches, as others have mentioned the road is a little narrow but no problem to anyone with the correct skills to drive / tow. That said do not use a sat nav! The site give you directions, use them, if you don't you will be on a mystery tour of Devon like us!

The shop is in the house with reception and the walk up the hill will walk of the fresh croissants and baguettes baked there every day. Really great friendly owners, shown to our pitch personally. It rained and rained during our stay, it got a little muddy but no worse than anywhere else.

The toilets and showers were kept clean and are to a good standard but are very busy during peak season as there is only one block, queuing for a shower is one thing but for a loo is quite another! 20p for 2mins in the showers and for washing up water. The fact there is no kids play equipment is a bonus as all the kids on site make friends and their own fun. The site has a 10pm quiet rule which is generally kept and a dogs on leads at all times which is not! If you want a site full of facilities then its not for you, but its that that keeps it a great quiet site. A gem of a site, still kept how camp sites used to be!

Great site. The owners charming, friendly and interested in your day, comfort and happiness without being intrusive. Site toilets religously cleaned. Free freezer available for freezer packs and sites own blocks for borrowing whilst waiting for yours to refreeze. Shop stocked all the basics you need. The morning order for pain au chocolat, croissants or baguettes was brilliant!

Good sized sheletered pitches allowing us to survive the atrocious bank holiday winds/ rain unscathed. Lovely area to visit

This is a lovely campsite in a lovely part of Devon run by very friendly people. A nice welcome awaited us on arrival, we were told we could pitch up anywhere as the site was quiet.

The site is divided into terraces going down the hill, all were freshly mown and nicely flat, the pitches along the terraces were also stepped so that they were level and flat in both directions. There is a shop at the house, which is also the reception, that sells all the useful stuff you aere likely to need. The loos are clean and nice, as are the washing up and laundry facilities. A shower will cost you 20p but, as the cost of the pitch was quite a bit less than some other sites, this was not a lot to ask. There are beautiful views from the top end of the site. Over the sea towards Cornwall, but as it was quite high and open it was at times quite windy, but there is a large area of the campsite down the hill which is sheltered from the wind.

As some other reviews have mentioned, the road is a little narrow leading to the site, but if driven with care should not present any real problems. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and plan on visiting again soon.
