Just had a great 10 days at this lovely campsite. It's in a good location about a mile in land from the picturesque village of Hope Cove - and is handily placed for visiting Salcombe, Kingsbridge, Dartmouth etc. There's a nice little beach in Hope Cove and a decent choice of places to eat and drink as well as a post office/general store.

The site is kept very clean and even though quite busy both weekends we were there it never felt crowded. Toilet block very modern and always immaculate. There are 2 freezers for ice packs - a real boon when the weather is hot as it was every day we were there.

A real luxury is having fresh bread and croissants baked on site every morning. Be sure to try the bloomer - delicious!

There really isn't anything negative to say about this site and we'd definitely stay again if in Devon.

We had a week at Karrageen over the half term. We travelled as a family of 4 plus 2 dogs, children aged 11 and 10.

On arrival we were greeted by the owners who booked us in quickly and efficiently and showed us to our pitch.

I have nothing negative to say about this site, other than the owners' dodgy sense of humour! Yes, the site is on a bit of a slope and if you are pitched at the bottom of the field like us it is a bit of a steep climb to the toilet block. The small but well stocked shop is great for the odds and sods that you might need. The pitches have plenty of space, no one is crammed in too tightly and the over all laid back approach on the site is evident.

There are no playgrounds or clubhouse and this is what I love about a site like this; kids playing football and rounders and generally going back to basics!

Toilets block - yes you have to pay for a shower but I personally have no issue with this and everything was spotless and the water always warm.

I would highly recommend this site!

Just back from a 10 night stay at Karrageen with our 2 border terriers. The site is in a beautiful location with good views. Access to the site is down a very narrow road which was fine for us as we were in a car with a tent. The owner was pleasant and helpful and we had a nice level pitch. The site has a shop and modern shower block, however all hot water is metered except for the handbasins. As such you need to take a good stock of 20p pieces with you. The showers are electric and are not very powerful so you need more 20ps as a result. We find paying as you go for showers and washing hot water a pain and would much rather pay for this in the tariff. The water on occasions was cold which was also a nuisance. When we told the owner about the cold water, he didn't seem that interested. The site only takes cash which again was a bit of a pain. Despite these points, we and our dogs were made to feel very welcome at the site. The site operates an over 50s discount tariff which we took advantage of. The area is absolutely lovely with fantastic coastal walking and a great pub for food called the Sloop Inn at Bantham.

We camped here over the August bank holiday for 8 days.

The site was on a slope, but the pitches were level.

Toilet blocks were lovely, but busy at peak times (to be expected at any campsite)

The family shower room was lovely (we have a 3yr old), but would have liked more than one, as this was very popular for families and at times had to wait.

There are 2 chest freezers for ice blocks (free) in the washing up block with a selection of books to borrow.

There are also a couple of washing machines and a tumble dryer which longer staying people were using regularly.

The only downside was one of the other campers had let their dog roam free and it messed near our tent, The owners cleaned this up once we’d reported it - but this was the fault of the dog owner not the campsite.

Beaches around are lovely worth checking them all out.

Note you need to pay in cash, we paid our balance a couple of days into the camping as we didn’t have enough cash when we booked in.

We found a lot of places only took cash – cash point at co-op in Marlborough (1 mile away)

There were no play facilities for the children, but they got together and made their own fun – which was great as they made lots of new friends.

We will be definitely stay there again. (but take a bag of 20ps for the showers)

Karrageen is a great site in a most secluded area. Towers and motor homers beware there is a narrow lane that leads up to the site, which can catch you out.

Overall the campsite is on a slope but the owners have taken great care to terrace the pitches and also to use landscaping to provide considerable seclusion.

The toilet / shower block is well made with good hot showers and ample toilet and washing facilities (you do need to collect up your twenty pence pieces before arriving) and the blocks are kept scrupulously clean.

There are no play areas for children however you can hear laughing children all over the campsite as children do they make their own fun and games and as if by magic when 10pm arrives the whole site falls into complete silence.

The owner makes a daily check of the camp site to ensure that there are no problems and that all of his campers are happy.

A very good holiday enjoyed by all. Thank you!

Had a wonderful couple of nights at Karrageen in the sunshine. I turned up without booking and had a warm welcome and efficient check in. I was told that I could choose where to pitch my tent - it was quite a windy day, but there are several hedges on the site and the field is on a slope (but split into level terraces), so I was able to find somewhere fairly sheltered.

The on-site shop sells all the basics. You can also charge your mobile phone there (in return for a donation to a local charity), order food in the evenings and pre-order croissants, etc for the following morning.

The toilets, shower block and washing up facilities were spotless. Yes, it is 20p for hot water, but a small price to pay. You can also freeze your ice blocks in the freezers in the laundry/washing up block. There is also a payphone there. It would have been useful to have a small shelf in the showers, but I can't fault it otherwise.

The Port Light hotel is a 15 minute walk uphill on Bolberry Down, serving evening meals, and a good place for walking. Hope Cove is also near by, which is very picturesque. Young children may not enjoy the steep hills to get to these places, but you can always stop and admire the view!

You need to be able to reverse in the narrow lanes to get to this site, but it is well worth it.
