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.

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.

We were in the top field ,with magnificent views but the one loo and shower block was a long walk and across a road. With only 4 showers in the ladies these came under pressure in mornings and evenings as did the washing up area. Having paid £20 per night for our pitch it did seem a bit much to have to pay 40p for a shower which was warm but not hot. The track to the field got very muddy with rain and made it slippery.
Helpful and pleasant owners and the view IS wonderful!

Have just returned from a week at Karrageen with two kids, found facilities to be good, shower / toilet block clean enough. Family very friendly, helpful if you need advice on local area. The fresh pain au chocolats available each morning were my personal highlight! I wasn't keen on where we were pitched however, our narrow field had high hedges behind and in front obscuring all views making me feel quite claustrophobic. In the high winds of last week the field became an absolute wind tunnel.
Lovely part of Devon though, kids adored North sands beach at Salcombe,sandy beach, easy parking, great cafe, nearby toilets. If it hadn't taken seven hours to get home I'd be tempted to go again but would request different field.
