This site sits on the hill looking down onto bigbury on sea and burgh island. 'Site' is probably to grand a word as its really just a sprawl of exposed farm fields with a small and very basic toilet and shower facility in one field. It was very quiet when we were there but I suspect the toilets and showers would struggle to cope at busier times, there are some electric hookups. Having said that we had great fun exploring the area and chatting to fellow campers.

We spent a few days here over the bank holiday weekend. We avoid sites with all the facilities on site so this fitted the bill even if it was on the spartan side.

The location is great over looking the sea and the whole ethos here is very relaxed. We bought veg from the local honesty box to supplement dinner and spent the days exploring the local footpaths.

The site is not the flattest, the toilets and showers are not the best but for the price we paid we expected nothing more. In 10 years time this site will probably be landscaped and terraced with loads of facilities but it will not be better for it. Less is more!

Just returned from a single (Saturday) night stay at Mount Folly.

Great location, easy walk to the beach. We took about 20 minutes dawdling with our 6 year old.

Traditional basic farm camping. Cheap with basic facilities. Several cold water taps available in the camping fields. Toilet and shower facilities in portcabins but clean, good water pressure and plenty of hot water. Showers were 1 for 7 minutes. No washing up facilities though to bring a big bowl and be prepared to heat up your own water.

Friendly farmer who will call around at some point and collect the fees.

This site is all about the views. It is basic but that is reflected in the price, if your looking for 5 star facilities then I would probably suggest you go else where. Toilets and showers are basic but very clean. It wasn't a problem for me and like I said worth putting up with for the sea views and view of the island. Short walk to the beach quite steep on the way back, dog friendly and you can have camp fires in raised fire pits. I would recommend this site to campers who are there to enjoy the scenery and peaceful setting.

We have been coming here for 15 years, adore the location, campsite freedom, views, friendly Farmer (John Tucker, salt of the earth!)

Cant believe those that whine about the basic ablution facilities - its a campsite people! John has made real efforts this year to placate the whingers - please go to the River Dart country park if you want sterile /regulated/ boot camp !

Really - there are very few proper campsites left in this country with the location, relaxed close to nature feel of this place - we love it and return as often as we can.

A somewhat different site, with 'interesting' facilities and an even more unique owner.

We stayed here whilst walking the coast path and were only here for one night, but enjoyed our stay. Whilst the site itself is not particularly attractive, the views are great looking down on Burgh Island. The facilities are not the best, being in old portacabins, but they were clean.

The stay however, was made by the owner who kindly offered to provide a lift to the start of our days walking, although a little late by the time he arrived, he still insisted on teaching my friend and his wife how to waltz and then on the way drove into a ploughed field to show us his as yet growing cauliflower. A most amusing start to a days walking.

The immediate area around the site is not amazing and as previously commented there are not many local facilities. However, the walk from Bantham to Bigbury is fantastic, tough but beautiful.

I may possibly find my way here again one day, hoping that whilst the site could benefit from quite a few improvements, that it hasn't changed one bit.
