We've just had the most wonderful 2 night with our dogs at Newberry Valley, such a beautiful peaceful location and a very comfortable and well kept site. The staff were lovely and so helpful when we managed to lock ourselves out of our van at 7. 15am (luckily we managed to break back in and avert a drama). Just a short walk to the beach and town of Combe Martin. We were touring the south and north coasts of Dorset and Devon and stayed on five different sites and agreed that Newberry Valley was our favourite. Would love to go back there sometime.

This is a very nice terraced site in an excellent location, just a ten minute walk from the beach, shops, pubs, cafés etc.

We had booked a large hard standing pitch which was indeed a good size and to our surprise contained a water tap. We really liked the pitch which had a great view, but felt that in a wet county like Devon a gravel area would be better for awnings.

The main facility block is excellent. There are four washing machines at a reasonable price and four tumble dryers, a free iron and one of the best laundry sinks I have used. My husband told me the dishwashing area was good too! There are 11 shower rooms with washbasin and toilet (includes 1 disabled), 6 private washrooms with toilet, 1 bathroom and 1 gents. The facilities were kept very clean but unfortunately most of them are not very well lit and I am reliably informed it is difficult to see when shaving. The only other comment I would make is that the shower flow isn’t very good in some of the showers. We were lucky that we were near the main block as the facilities at the other end of the site looked quite meagre.

There is a facility to order bread, scones and other pastries plus various meats which I appreciated and can recommend the lamb & mint burgers.

The wardens were ever present and although it is difficult to get a smile from the lady wardens, the men were friendly and helpful and I would like to give a special mention to Chris who went out of his way to help us.

There are some alpacas and hens and a fantastic woodland walk which we particularly enjoyed and made the effort to walk as far as we could uphill and were rewarded with some lovely views.

The only downside to this lovely site was the noise. I appreciate the fact the site has to be maintained, but so do all sites and I’ve stayed on many well maintained sites. However this has to be the noisiest I’ve experienced with strimming nearly every day and constant zooming up and down by the wardens in buggies.

That said, the pros outweigh the cons and I would gladly return.

Excellent spacious campsite with plenty of privacy. Lovely well maintained site with plenty of well kept lawns and fishing lake. Helpful friendly wardens take you to your pitch.

We had a premium paved pitch with picnic table and plenty of room. The toilet and shower facilities are the best I have ever seen, private bathrooms, showers and toilets and they are immaculately clean it's like your own bathroom at home. Having two dogs there are plenty of walks on site, there is a wood and a meadow for dog walking and opposite the entrance is a public footpath to the beach and village so no need to walk on the road. Great fish and chip takeaway in village as well as cafes, convenience stores and pubs serving food.

We spent two days here and the weather wasn't good but we stil had a great time. We will definitely be coming back for a longer stay next time and use it as a base to the wonderful places and beaches in north Devon.

What a fabulous site. Easy access into a beautifully laid out site in gorgeous wooded valley. Enormous paved pitch with own picnic table and large grass area overlooking the lake. Great dog walk into the woods (steep!) and well mown paths around site and the beautiful lake. 5 min walk down footpath opposite site entrance takes you to the charming Newberry beach ( dog friendly) and on round into Combe Martin. Great fish & chip shop! Very helpful and friendly wardens who escort you to your pitch.

Definitely a site that we'd love to revisit.

Just returned from a 12-night stay at this lovely campsite. I’d agree with most of the previous comments, apart from if you have a caravan make sure you’re not on Oak 13 pitch! We booked this holiday in January; a premier pitch; which if you take note of previous comments we would have been on a huge pitch with a block paved space for our caravan and car; a stoned area for our awning and a large grass area to sit and relax. Oh No! We ended up on the only premier pitch where we had to park our car around the corner near the barn and only had 2 metres of grass as we had to “share it with the seasonal pitch next door” so although we paid the same amount as Oak 12 (who had all the above and a 5-metre bit of grass) we didn’t have the same space. We only found this out when we were sitting on our ‘bit’ of grass and was told by one of the wardens that “did we know we didn’t have all the grass only 2m of it”! We did go and speak with those in reception, most of whom didn’t realise this was the case. They did offer us the chance to move but the only available pitch wasn’t on hard standing which is what we had wanted. Walking round the site there didn’t appear to be much consistency in the premier pitches only that they offered, water/waste and EHU. The sizes and paved/stoned areas differed from pitch to pitch.

The site was lovely and peaceful, just what we needed. On arrival, you are taken to your pitch. The unisex shower block was good, unfortunately the water pressure was a let-down, although the water was always hot and we didn’t have to queue during our time here. The wardens were always about cleaning/replenishing. They do offer pizza (cooked in a caravan) on Tuesday and Saturday evenings, which although a bit expensive was very nice. The site has a coded barrier entrance/exit. We did use the laundry facilities and at £3 a wash good value for money. There is a hair dryer available which was useful. There is plenty of information on the area and they do offer a book exchange.

The surrounding area is lovely with stunning views and Combe Martin is a lovely village, the Jack of Cards pub does great food including a lovely Sunday carvery, but do book. This area of North Devon is very hilly and coming from the flat fens, we found it a bit of an effort but soon got used to it, so take this into consideration when going to this area. We caught the bus (from the village) into Ilfracombe just over £9 return for 2 adults/1 child once, the service seems very popular.
