Having just returned from this site I wanted to leave a review of our stay.

We followed the alternative route from Modbury. We found this better than the other route.

You enter the site down a short narrow lane. Nothing to worry about.

The site is very relaxed. We stayed on the Caravan Club CL pitches which are at the top of the field with the best views.

There are 2 taps at either end of the field and the elsan is by the farmhouse.

The toilet block is attached to the farmhouse. There are 2 showers and 2 toilets with sinks. All unisex. The showers are operated by 20p coins. I timed it at 1 min 30 seconds for my 20p. A quick shower cost 80p. The showers are not that powerful either. This is the first time we have used our shower in the van everyday. If you are used to using your own facilities then you will be fine. Don't let this put you off. There is planning permission applied for to build a new toilet block.

The site is very well positioned with a bus stop at the end of the lane and a cycle/footpath leading to Malborough and Salcombe. Salcombe is a 40 min walk. We also did the walk to Hope Cove which was about an hour. There is a Co-op in Malborough with a petrol station and stocks all that you need.

We ate at a different place in Salcombe every day and all were very good. Sunday lunch in The Victoria, The Fortescue, The Crab Shack, The Kings Arms and the Wardroom on other days. If you like gin, then try the Salcombe Gin Distillery, it has a bar upstairs with views over the water.

There is a steady walk to South Beach and North Beach. We got the ferry back.

All in all a pleasant stay in Salcombe.

We stayed at Ilton Farm Campsite for 6 nights over the Easter weekend with our 3 young children. It' s a lovely location to explore South Devon. There is a Co-op petrol station about a mile away which was handy for basic food and fuel.

We did not spend too much time on the site as we were wanting to explore but when we were there it was a nice quiet site with some lovely views.

The facilities were basic not much for children to do but adequate and at 16 a night with electric hook-up for 5 of us in a big tent with awning, we can't complain.

Despite it been busy everywhere else we went, the campsite did not feel full (5 tents and about 8 caravans in use) and we only had to queue for the toilets/shows a couple of times.

I can see this being a possible issue in the summer when it's busier. Overall good value for money if you are after a quiet site to use as a base to explore the area.

Stayed here for a couple of nights while walking the SW Coast Path, had a pleasant stay and thought that the site was a good, decent campsite and the owners were very pleasant and happy to help.

The site is on a large slope, but we were able to find a reasonably flat spot to park the vans and there was plenty of space between us and the next few units. There were plenty of EHU points and a few water points.

The facilities are right at the bottom of the slope and were a long way to walk for us as we decided to pitch at the top. Only 3 cubicles and 3 showers and I did have to queue briefly for both on occasion, so it could be quite bad in the height of the season.

The surrounding area is very nice and the section of coast path from Bantham to Salcombe is one of the best in this part of South Devon. Salcombe itself is a picturesque little place, but you could sense that it may be too much when busy.

Just returned from a great weekend at this site. The views were lovely, the grass kept short and tidy. There were 2 water taps in the field, one at the lower end and one at the top.

The best things about this site was the free wifi and the facility to refreeze ice packs at no extra charge.

The toilet block, as others have mentioned, is across a small road, not a problem unless you have small children. We were surprised given the quality of the site to only find 3 toilets (unisex) for the whole site. Of course many of those there had caravans or motor homes with their own facilities, but we still had to queue a few times even though there were not many tents in the field. Also the only wash hand basins were in the toilet cubicles which slowed up the whole process, especially in the mornings or at bedtime when someone just wanting the loo had to wait for those having a wash and cleaning their teeth.

The other thing was the lack of washing up facilities;there was one hut half way up the field with a sink and draining board, but only had cold water. Hot water was available for 20p to takeaway by the bucket from the toilet block. Not ideal. We were ok because we could wash up at our tent, made all the easier by the lovely weather we had, but in worse weather needing to wash up in the rain inside the tent would not have been much fun.

Chatting to the owner / farmer who was very friendly it seems there are plans to open all year around; my suggestion would be to improve on the toilet and washing up facilities. Would definitely improve the service and lead to more business.

Overall though, it was a nice site and we enjoyed our time there, especially with it being in easy walking distance to Salcombe.

No arguments with previous reviews. A decent site for the price. It is signed from the main Kingsbridge to Salcombe road. I bagged a flattish piece of grass but most of the field for non club members is on a slope. 2 water taps in the field and the shower/toilet block is at the farmhouse. These are ok, but the entrance, in a corner by some bins, is not appealing. The owner was business like, rather than chatty.

Views of rolling country and a bit of the estuary are nice. Kingsbridge is the place for supplies.

The area is very picturesque and interesting. You can walk into Salcombe down some rather muddy and overgrown bridle paths, or carefully along the single track roads. If you are fit you can walk back again. Salcombe is, as is to be expected, very yachty, but well worth some time. The coastal path is excellent in this area. The best bit for me was a trip into Dartmouth. The weather helped, but you could spend days here just watching the harbours, ferries and steam train work. It is also a proper country town with real shops and a market.

OK for the money. Showers run on 20p - took me 40p to have a shower. 1 would give you a long time.

Sloping field - not all pitches will have a view of Salcombe. Long walk to the toilets/chem disposal if you're at the top of the field. Toilet facilities are indeed over a public road. It's not busy, but those with young 'uns watch out. Toilets, showers are adequate.

It might be an idea to pop some solar garden lights next t the steps down to the toilets just to make it a little safer. I found it to be a little precarious at night and a little light would make it a lot safer.

There are number of beaches nearby, Salcombe and Kingsbridge are quant places to have a wander around. There are two supermarkets at Kingsbridge, and some smaller more local shops nearer (garage at Malborough).

Entrance road is narrow. Keep your fingers crossed that you don't meet a caravan coming the other way. I would go back if I were in the area again.
