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.

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.
