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.

Reviewer: Thebobs 4 reviews from this member

Can't fault the site, its fantastic, great facilities, dog friendly, beautiful location, the walk down to Hope Cove is well worth it & aswell as the beach, theres some nice little pubs, although you can drive your car down there & theres parking available.
If you have dogs then The Lighthouse Restaurant (at Bolberry I think)is well worth a visit, they are very friendly and the food is great. You can also get to a lovely sheltered & secluded cove from here, its a bit of a walk along the cliff tops and wouldn't be suitable for the disabled or pushchairs due to the climb down (and take some refreshments, its a long way back up).

The only downside is that if you want to get to somewhere this peaceful & beautiful there is a price to pay and it comes in the form of a long and winding narrow lane down to the site. Which in the busy season must cause a few headaches for the locals as well as the tourists, especially if you are towing, its probably 2 miles long but when you have your heart in your mouth hoping another vehicle isn't coming in the opposite direction, it seems to go on forever. There are some passing points but you need to be a very patient and a skillful driver if you have a caravan attached to you. We were extremely lucky on our day of arrival and got down there without seeing another motorist, but trying to leave was a different story.

Visited this lovely site in Sept for two weeks. It was clean and the owner met us and showed us several pitches that we could choose from. (He has a wicked sense of humour).

The site was quiet and the owner went around to each pitch daily to ensure everyone was happy and offered advice on local attractions etc.

There is one toilet/shower block which means that some parts of the site are some distance from it. During our stay it was cleaned daily. Mops and clothes were also available for campers to clean up after themselves if needed (not that all did).

The showers are charged for and timed but we found that there was adequate time to use these, and it should be remembered that all the water for the site comes from a spring.

The pitch prices were very reasonable with water and waste on or close to each pitch. The take away food on site was brilliant and home cooked, with a very varied menu (not just the usual burger and chips).

There is a lovely beach a mile down the lane and the area has many interesting places to visit. Bolbury Down at sunset is beautiful. The sea can be seen from some areas of the site. One thing that should be remembered is that Devon lanes are narrow, and this is so for the lane to the site, although there are many passing places cut out. But I would advise that if you are visiting this site 'slow down.'

In all we had a great time and met many friendly like minded campers. We will be visiting again next year.
