I had booked this originally when we had a tent but in the meantime we bought a motorhome so I decided to keep the booking. We arrived to a note posted outside the shop telling us to choose a pitch as Sue was unavailable until teatime. She certainly made us welcome later in the day. Higher Rew is in a lovely situation, within walking distance of South Sands and the cliffs of the coastal path. It is well kept and laid out on a sloping but terraced field with plenty of space on each pitch although I would say that if you had a very long unit you may struggle for a flat pitch. Many caravans were obviously seasonal and storage is available. Takeaway will deliver to the site!

There is a small shop for basics with limited opening hours (8:30-9:00)although longer at weekends when the site seems to fill up. Showers (20p/4 mins- which is enough!), wash-up sinks and laundry occupy one building and toilets and wash basins another, all clean with plenty of hot water. The playbarn was a good feature for youngsters and the best place to use wifi.

Pros. - lovely area to explore on foot/bike, wildlife and flora, quiet, friendly

Cons. - no washing cubicles for privacy, showers too hot for children and no baby/family washroom, no facilities for the disabled, 'keep dogs on lead' not upheld so that we had to remove dog dirt from our pitch when we arrived.

I would stay here again but you really need transport to see all that the area has to offer. We were a bit limited with a motorhome that would prove difficult on narrow/steep Devonshire lanes. Perhaps next time we'll stick with the tent!

Very nice campsite, clean & friendly. It is 20p for 4 minutes for the showers which are set at the right temp, once you put in your 20p it gives you 1 min to get ready for use. Lots of thing for the kids to do. Easy to get too places, 25/30mins walk to the lovely clean beach. Recommend the Royal Oak pub in the village they are very friendly & welcoming. There is another pub but find them not very welcoming to tourists.

The location of this campsite is ideal for walkers and only a short way from Salcombe. The pitches are quite small and in our case sloping. The reception we had was friendly and courteous although it would have helped if we were taken to our pitch, as with other campsites we have stayed on, instead of a pointed finger. We were only there for 3 nights and found the site at night quite noisy ( people letting there children ride bikes and kicking footballs a 11pm ) We did ask what the policy was for this kind of behaviour and was told that they would investigate and deal with problem but they must have forgotten as the noise continued. The facilities were clean but unfortunately the layout of the site meant that some pitches were about 300 to 400 yards away. The play area could do with an update as it looked tired and worn out with just a few rubber mats on concrete.

This was our second year at Higher Rew. Absolutely lovely site which is why we came back!

Nice relaxed feeling and attitude by the owners who are really helpful. Good spacious pitches that are reasonably level due to terracing.

Clean and ample facilities - did have to queue for a shower once (morning rush hour, so what do you expect?) but didn't wait more than few mins (20p charge means you don't get shower hoggers!) If you want a longer shower, just put 2 x 20p's in, but 20p was perfectly long enough for a body and hair wash in my opinion. Showers were always hot and always clean. Plenty of toilets and they were always clean too.

Kids (big and small) can ride bikes on site which is great - I love seeing kids off having fun meeting new holiday friends. There is also lots of open space for kids to run around. There's quite a steep hill up behind the top row of pitches and it's perfect for flying kites - the shop even sells some! Undercover play area is fine - a little basic, but OK, and gives the kids somewhere to head for and meet there friends.

Shop seemed to be well stocked with basics although we didn't use it much. Nearest mini supermarket is Malborough where there is a co-op in the Texaco garage. Chip van came once a week as did the Hog Roast man (which was really really delicious and reasonably priced).

Facilities for recycling on site.

The only slight downside is the narrow lanes to get there. You need nerves of steel pulling a van (well maybe that's a little bit of an exaggeration!). Having said that, maybe that puts some people off to our benefit ;-)

A Winking Prawn Evening BBQ (North Sands, Salcombe) is a must for us - a bit expensive but delicious; we always share a couple between us as an end of stay treat!

We'll be there again in 2013 as we think it is the best campsite in the South Hams (and we've stayed at a few) for what we want: relaxed site, level pitches, safe freedom for the kids, easy reach of Hope Cove and Bigbury.

Stopped for one night while backpacking along the South West Coast Path.

The Proprietor was welcoming and, as requested, gave me a quiet pitch. A good campsite with excellent showers and toilets.

The campsite is a bit off the Coast Path but worth the detour.

There are several footpaths around in this beautiful area so this campsite would be an ideal base for a few days walking.

I would be happy to call again.

We have just come back from a 3 day stay at Rew. We turned up without booking and the owner found us a great pitch, her hubby even moved stored caravans for us and a Danish family so we could get a good pitch!

Lovely well kept grass with beautiful views from the site. Great shower and toilet facilities. Although the showers were 20p they were worth it, hot water and spacious shower rooms.

The kids that were there, from what we heard and saw, really enjoyed the barn with swings etc in it.

Great walks all around the site whatever way you went and despite it being the school holidays it wasn't too loud or noisy at all.

The little shop was great and there's a chippy van that comes on a Wednesday and hog roast on a Thursday.

All in all an enjoyable stay. We will go back!
