We stayed here for a few nights during some particularly unseasonable wet and windy August weather. The site was easy enough to find - directions were accurate and the campsite sign was easy to spot.

The first thing to note is about the roads in this neck of the woods. They are interesting to say the least! Most are single track with small passing spots every 50m or so. When busy this gets tricky - especially when more than one car is travelling in each direction! Slow going. Having said that it is a lovely, rural part of the world.

Onto the campsite then. First impressions were good - as the name suggests it does indeed have a sea view. The pitches are all level, but not on the level - most of the first field is on a slope. We booked with mains hookup and the price was certainly cheaper than the more commercial site down the road. However, this comes at the price of fairly basic facilities and being a slow drive from most of civilisation.

The owners were very friendly, and there is plenty of local information at hand for planning days out.

The facilities are all located in portacabins. Now they were indeed clean, with plentiful hot water, soap and toilet roll. But they were a bit dated. I guess I've been pampered with more modern facilities elsewhere so this isn't necessarily a criticism. I might suggest that a hand dryer wouldn't go amiss though. I didn't like the look of the tired old communal hand towels provided in the toilet blocks! The washing up cabin had two sinks and a big chest freezer so no complaints there. The showers were okay. Hot water and room enough to change etc, although you do have to pay 20p for about 6 minutes. I'm used to sites that offer free showers so this is an anomaly for me, and I would like to have at least been offered the use of a hair dryer and mirror after my shower.

To sum up then, a beautiful spot with average facilities and pricing. Difficult to access, but well placed for some stunning coastline.

We are 2 pensioners, and stayed 2 nights in our camper in August. We were very pleased with the site, which is just as described on the website. Each pitch is generous, and the large field is ideal for families wanting space for games. Everywhere was very clean and tidy. Charges are modest - a great site for exploring the area. Just don't go into Slapton village with a caravan or large van !

A good basic site with nice location and a good view.

The WC/shower facilities were adequate and clean but I am not sure there would be enough to go around if the site was full. (I stayed at the beginning of September when there were only about 5 tents in total) provision of washing up facilities and freezer was good.

The only real downside are the narrow roads which are bad enough in a car but would be a nightmare if towing a caravan.

Stayed here for two nights lovely hot showers you will need twenty pence pieces which gives you six minutes but that was sufficient even for me who likes long hot showers, toilets lovely and clean and lovely clean wash up area with lots of tourist information, we had a electric hook up so where we were was a little windy but otherwise a lovely site, roads very windy so would be careful if towing a caravan wouldn't go through slapton, Dartmouth a short drive away which is well worth a visit.

Just had a long weekend here. Had read that the showers were 20p. But I thought they could cut it down by a minute. Felt I was wasting water! Cost of 20p is absolutely nothing these days.

Washing up and fridge area was nice and clean, fridge was a real bonus.

Appreciate that this is a working farm, and fields are otherwise used of season, but wished that there was a clearer definition between pitches. When there is some hedging there is also respect.

Had teenagers hurdling my guy lines during the evenings. And competing to see how high they could jump on the wheelie bins, (crash bang swear. ) results depended on beer consumption! Contrast was the cricket match on Sunday evening. One in each field. More chance in the large field as small dog was winning in the smaller field!

Overall nice site but better suited to large family groups or small children who like noise.

Those who comment on the access should remember this is Devon. The lane down from the main road is actually quite wide in comparison to others around!

What a gem of a site. Beautiful scenery and well kept.

We stayed her for four nights on our epic three week tour. The weather was absolutely fantastic.

Toilets and showers are basic but clean and the owners were very nice and pretty much left you to your own devices.

Slapton village is beautiful and picturesque but, be prepared for a steep uphill walk back to the campsite. The hill needs to be walked slowly. Two lovely pubs with nice food in the village and one little village shop. Slapton sands is worth a visit.

All in all, a brilliant stay and I would go back again
