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The toilets and showers were outdated and generally dirty.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!

We arrived late in the season and late on a Friday night. We were warmly welcomed by the owner and shown to our spot. The view in the morning was wonderful both of the sea and the valley. The area is great for walking and we had two wonderful days walking along the coast in both directions. The facilities were basic but neat and tidy. As we were in a Campervan we didnt need to use them. There are two good pubs within walking distance. There is also a coffee bar and restaurant by the beach. We would recommend the site to anyone who likes views and walking.

We have just returned from a bank holiday stay at Coombe View Farm, after being let down at another campsite we called this campsite and the owner answered and was accommodating straight away giving us good directions etc

On the drive down we read some reviews and started to panic a little, we needn't of worried! We had the best 2 days, the campsite is basic but has a really family orientated feel, we had 3 young children between us and the family we travelled with and they didn't want to come home! They made friends with other children on site and I felt relaxed that they were close by at all times and extremely safe.

We were allowed campfires which was fantastic and the owner was really helpful delivering us some wood. The owner does drive around the site but we didn't find this a nuisance, infact quite the opposite, he was very helpful and when we asked if we could stay late the following afternoon he was very obliging.

The site is very clean and tidy, the facilities are basic but more than adequate, the surrounding area is beautiful, we particularly enjoyed rock pooling at Sidmouth.

Would definitely return to this campsite again if in the area.
