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.

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.
