I would like to say this campsite was a little gem indeed. The views were stunning. When we arrived we were greeted most warmly and paid by the day, weather was a bit hit and miss but that did not put us off. The facilities are basic but that is explained so no problem they do the job. Bit of advice it can get windy but the views are worth it!

Although spacious pitches, lovely views, basic but adequate latrines/showers - the area was characterless! The surrounding buildings - except for the farm - are predominantly modern bungalows. No lovely, quaint villages to walk to - just the beaches and an absolutely awful -kiss me quick- holiday village in challaborough bay. However, excellent café at bigbury on sea but, apart from that, no-where else to walk to and eat out. This site/area are ok to visit for a few days, but unless you want to walk to a beach everyday, you would need to explore further afield by car. Nearest nisa convenience store in challaborough - could do with one on, or nearer to, campsite.

To be honest, i've seen better in cornwall - much more dramatic/interesting/exciting/varied. However, liked this site but not the mundane area.

This is a great campsite! We spent a week here and had an enjoyable time. I agree with the other comments that the on site shower and toilet facilities weren't great however we chose this site for the peace and quiet and beautiful location.

The campsite is located near many public rights of way so there are lots of lovely walks to be had 'from your doorstep'. We did the Avon estuary walk which entailed a trip across the estuary in a lovely wooden boat. Make sure that you check the ferry operating times before you head down the cliff as it is a bit of a slog to the top again!

In terms of shops and evening eateries we found that there were not many useful facilities at Bigbury-on-Sea itself. The nearest (small) supermarket is at Challaborough which is about 30 mins walk (downhill) from the campsite. In terms of eateries we stumbled across The Journey's End Inn in nearby Ringmore. I thoroughly recommend a visit to this lovely quaint old pub. The food is great and there were lots of cask ales avaliable too. I would recommend that you book in advance as it is so popular. Again Ringmore (which is worth a visit anyway as it is so pretty) is about 30 mins walk away but up two big hills!

Overall we really enjoyed camping here. Try and pitch up behind a hedge as it can be very windy!

This would have been a wonderful campsite had it not been for the ugly eyesore that constitute the facilities. It`s in a lovely spot with great views along the coast, within walking distance of beautiful beaches. However everything is spoiled by the rusting ramshackle portakabins with very basic interiors and light switches hanging by the wires and not working. No hot water to the sinks and very uninviting showers at £1 a go. Rubbish strewn around and shoved under the portakabins and the hole over the sewer pipe covered by a paving slab, which is the waste water disposal point, surely contravenes health and safety regulations.

Come on owners. Spend a little to bring the facilities up to scratch and this would be a fantastic site.

A fantastic campsite in walking distance to a superb beach, kids loved body boarding and watching the pro s kite surfing. Views were spectacular could sit and look at them all day :-) on arrival after my first experience of Cornish country roads we drove onto campsite unsure where to pitch, spent about 5 mins driving around in my campervan decided on a sea view unaware of the high winds :-( spent about 30 mins TRYING to attach awning, gave up and went for the wind breakers for shelter from the wind but after nearly loosing mine and kids heads and a visit from farmer/owner of site we were advised not to bother, lovely chap who pointed out where the facilities were showers/loos ect and would be back once we were settled to take payment. Owner came back after a short while and told us it would be £12 for the night. Very reasonable :-) gave the kids a pound each to get a ice cream which was a lovely touch. All in I would highly recommend Mount Folly Farm if you want the space, freedom for kids to play, close to beach, value for money, very friendly staff :-) if you want level pitches, top notch facilities and no wind it might not be for you but otherwise it's one of the best coastal camp site I have been to :-)

Ps we did have the aftermath of hurricane Bertha so might not be as windy as we had it !

This site is in the most stunning location down narrow lanes and where the views are superb.

It has basic facilities including hook up, it is very dog friendly with lots of excellent footpaths taking you in every direction including to the estuary and the cliff path and allows open fires in fire pits

The farmer and his family were really hospitable and made me feel very welcome, they care passionately about the land and farm and there are information boards to tell you about the herd of cows ect. They have strict rules about limiting the level of noise and excessive drinking.

This site reminded me of very happy camping holidays from my child hood, where you can feel the presence of nature. I really enjoyed my stay
