The previous reviewers have given an accurate view of this site. The wardens were particularly helpful in providing more chocks for our corner steadies! This is a small site but it has all the facilities of a larger site.

The local pub is a short walk into the village. We went once and the food was ok, nothing special. A good food experience was found at The Black Horse in Great Torrington. We would certainly return there if in the area. Great Torrington also had a Lidl as well as access to the Traka cycle trail. There is a petrol station and shop about a mile towards Barnstaple on the main road.

Worthwhile attractions and activities are Big Sheep (including the on-site brewery), cycling on the Traka Trail, Barnstaple leisure centre for those wet days, Saunton Sands (£7. 50 to park, but it has all the beech facilities) and also Braunton Burrows beech (£1. 50 to park but it has no facilities). Both beeches are dog friendly.

Spent a week at this friendly and tidy campsite, which was very central for amenities in Barnstable (Supermarket, Pizza Hut, Halfords etc) also, within easy reach of the beautiful fishing harbours and beaches, not to mention 'The Big Sheep, and Milky Way. The campsite also offers discounts for various places within the area. Warm welcome from the owners, who helped site caravan. Pitches are sloping, so remember to take some chocks with you. Toilets and showers were clean and warm. There is a little shop that sells basic provisions, and you can order bread, pasties etc. The fish and chips on a Tuesday night is a real treat, yummy, and no washing up! There is a barn for older children, with table tennis, tv, pool, which is really good, but a little too far away from the main campsite - having to walk from the dog walk to get there. There is a nice playground with an area for football.

Just spent our annual 10 day summer holiday at the Umberleigh site. As is expected from the Camping and Caravanning Club, all the facilities were in excellent order. The wardens were particularly hospitable and helpful, even to the point of going round to every unit/tent on the site to advise on what should be done when the weather turned very windy and wet, and indeed it did turn very wet and windy. The site drained very well and dried up quite quickly. The Games room was great for out little one who enjoyed many a game of skittles. We were pitched fairly close to the play area, so on some nights it was quite noisy up to around 10pm, after that the site was completely quiet. A word of warning though, quite a few pitches are on sloping ground (not mentioned in the club handbook) and we were infact pitched on quite a slope and therefore spent quite a few nights rolling into each other in our tent. A few of the caravans were chocked as high up as was possible and looked very precarious. Over the 10 days we stayed there the local farmers decided it was time to do “Muck Spreading” however they did not rake it in to the ground, the smell was horrendous. Nothing that site could do about it but be warned. The location of the site is not too bad, about 30 mins away from the major attractions (Milky Way, Watermouth Castle etc), but that itself is a good thing because it keeps the site from being too busy. A fish and chip van visited on Tuesday evening and this was very good, however get there was quite a queue.

In general a small, well kept site with very good facilities – we will be returning.

Really enjoyed our stay here. Small quiet site run by friendly and helpful wardens. It is family friendly with a small outdoor park, large playing field and an indoor games room. The children enjoyed playing table tennis and skittles. A lovely extra bonus was an hour long free tennis lesson which they loved. The toilet block was always clean and the showers hot. The wardens did regular patrols and made sure rules were adhered to and everyone was happy. We would definitely return.

A medium site set in the beautiful countryside of North Devon. All hard standing pitches face west offering superb views of summer sunsets. The wardens are friendly, helpful and welcoming. Unusually, the site is set within extensive grounds enabling more lengthy dog walking than usual! For younger campers there is an indoor play area complete with television. The modernised washing and toilet block is an appropriate size to meet the demands of a full campsite. Walking guide maps are available from the site office for a small charge. Bread and newspapers are available on request.

The North Devon Coastal towns are a short drive away; the nearest supermarket is at Barnstable which can suffer from traffic congestion in peak season.

An excellent, peaceful site.

Arrived on site & was greeted by friendly warden trish. Touring caravan holiday for 2 adults, 1 ten year old & dog. Very clean dog friendly site. Dog walking aera. Lots to keep the kids occupied, tennis / table tennis / football / pool / skittles / tv room. Excellent shower / wash rooms. Nearest beach 20 mins is Instow were dogs are allowed. Ace pub that does a cracking sunday roast (the rising sun), 5 mins drive from site. 20 min drive to Barnstable, 30 min drive to bideford which must be the most dog friendly town in England. Me & my lad visited cobbaton combat collection. 10 min drive from site, watch out for farmers down those country lanes. Described a 1 mans collection that got out of hand. Wow! you will not be disappointed. Overall fantastic site just wish it was closer to beach.
