This is a peaceful and tranquil location, owners couldn't do enough for you! Having read the other reviews I can understand the issues that might have been faced by lack of facilities but when we stayed here the new shower block was up and running and we, and other campers we spoke to were more than happy with the new facilities. There was also a hot water sink to wash up in that had recently been installed so thumbs up for that. From the numerous other places we have stayed at we did not think price was at all expensive: we've been charged near 25 per night for a pitch that set us back only 15 at this site! This camp site is a bit of a 'no shoes no news' kinda place. The basics you need for camping are there (shower, toilet, chemical disposal, water, electric, perishables available etc) but its a no thrills site as in no discotheque, kids ball pit, evening ent, swimming pool etc. Its where you go to do 'real' camping, get away from it all and to be in the solitude of nature which is what we love. 10 out of 10 from us!

Bovey's Down farm has a fantastic location; the view across the valley is really pretty, it's close to Honiton for supermarkets, and not far from the beach.

However, the facilities don't really match up to the location. When we stayed, the shower/toilet block was still under construction. The working facilities consisted of one bathroom containing a loo and shower, which appeared to double as the cloakroom and toilet for the catering business on site. We were not staying for long, and were able to do washing up in the sink outside of the toilet block (no hot water) - however if the site had been busy at all, there would have been a massive queue.

The tariff is a bit odd as well. There's different rates for large and small tents. Large tents are defined as anything more than 150x320cm. You'll be hard pushed to find a 2 person tent that's less than 150cm wide, so I suppose its a single person rate really. The price increase for the large tents made this campsite not great value for money.

The toilet block is probably finished by now, and will definitely improve the site, but as things stood we weren't too impressed. Still, nice and quiet spot if you don't mind poor facilities.

Very quiet site and friendly owners. We slept well. Facilities do not seem to tie up with those published. Perhaps they are a wish list. The toilet block is currently under construction and looks like it will soon be finished. Just one toilet and cold water only while we were there. They do have a kitchen which looks up to standard and has a 4 out 5 food hygiene rating. They offer cream teas from 12:00. I don't think it is wheel chair accessible safely. We could not pick up WiFi, No sign of an Elsan point. No shop or cycle hire apparent. There seems to be electric hook although this is achieved with training leads daisy chained up the filed. One goes and they all go. No your usual hook up points. Up Animals are on the farm and the grass is trimmed quite long. The actual price for two nights with a trailer tent and awning but no electric hook up was 38. A tad expensive for the lack I facilities we felt but it suited our needs.
