We have just returned from a great weekend here. The site was clean but basic, but this is what camping is all about. There was plenty of hot water for showers, admittedly the water pressure was low at busy times, but not a real issue. Fantastic views across the countryside, lovely walks near by. A walk down to the Mason Arms pub with great food, dog friendly. BUT rather hilly, great going down not so good walking back. The site it self is also dog friendly even supplies poop bags. We went with our Godson and wife and had a great time. Trevor was a great character even pulling us out by tow rope when we got stuck in the mud due to the wet weather.

A lovely little site. Reasonable price.

Field relatively flat at top with lovely view of sea. Camp near road but leads to small village so not busy. Field in good condition, Allows for open fires in a few spots with some picnic tables if you are lucky to get a good spot. Some of field on slope and lower part near small copse.

Field for tents at far end of camp and toilets are about 150m away which feels a little far. Toilets in reasonable condition, clean but a little basic.

Stayed with my wife but good spot for kids to run around. Because fields are not big it could mean you are a little on top of one another if busy.

The camp site is in a lovely location, with a friendly, character of an owner but little else to shout about.

The field we stayed in was badly covered in sheep and other animal droppings which meant that it was far from child friendly, although the ground was cleaner further towards the entrance and toilet/shower block.

Also, if you're staying in the end field it's quite a walk to get just water as there's no tap at that end.

The toilets and showers were outdated and generally dirty. OK if you don't mind sharing with spider webs and other wildlife. There was very little water pressure so washing hands/dishes was a painfully slow process.

As others have said, the owner drives around the site several times a day and will drive directly up to the tents. He doesn't drive carelessly but with many small children running around, it did feel a bit unnecessary.

A tolerable camp site, but I wouldn't stay there again.

This was a lovely campsite with a friendly owner who went out of his way to make sure we had everything we needed.

Toilets are clean and regularly attended to - always stocked with soap and toilet roll.

Showers are not shared with creepy crawlies as implied in some other reviews - in fact the cubicles are painted blue with movement activated lights inside and doors on cable ties that swing shut - resulting in a distinct lack of bugs, compared to other campsites I have visited. Only slight issue is lack of shower curtain risking your things get wet but cubicles are large enough for this not to be a problem. Showers were hot - no problems there, sometimes water pressure issues when many used at once but not really (again compared to other places I've been). No queues, even over bank holiday weekend.

Washing up area not covered but we had good weather. Might be a bit of a pain in the rain.

Fires allowed which is always nice.

Large field means a fair trek to toilet block if in the far field but not a problem at night as there are a few portaloos on route.

Two friendly horses in adjoining field :-)

Mile and a half walk to Branscombe with nice pub with good food. Short walk then to beach. Really beautiful location, and the first field (primarily caravans) has sea view.

Would definitely recommend.

We had a very pleasant 3 days here, the facilities may be basic, but everything worked and was kept as clean as possible considering how busy it was (The Jubilee weekend)

We turned up without pre-booking because of traffic problems, and the owner still made us welcome and showed us where to pitch. He does patrol the site a few times a day, but does not intrude, and he is a good source of local info, and is a good laugh too!

Campfires are welcomed, and the only drawback we found was it can be a bit of a walk to the loos, but the owner warned us about this on arrival, so no complaints!

Plenty to do in the area and great walks from the site.

Stayed over the Jubilee weekend. Site was lovely and quiet on Friday and started getting busier on Saturday onwards. Despite this still plenty of room on the site. When busy the loos/basins did run out of water.

The owner tries really hard to make your stay enjoyable by checking on you regularly (as per previous reviews). This could be invasive if the site was quiet but ok when the site was busy.

The site is a simple couple of fields with spaces for campfires and generally quiet and night. The walk down to Branscombe via the road is ok but climbing back up is a challenge!
