Our perfect site, nice and simple and priced accordingly. Good size pitches, few other campers (it was February), and loads of space to fly our gliders!

The main field is around a grassed play area, big enough to never have a football ever come nearby. It has a few hard stands around the outside, all with EHU (16Amp I think) and water close by most pitches. There were some large log cabins off this field too. The lower field was even bigger with a couple of small 'pod' cabins, and a few EHU points and loos and elsan between the two fields, so all is close by.

The lower field was huge and big enough to fly many kites, or model gliders as we did.

We didnít use the facilities so I canít comment on these, but they are working on concreting a large area to overcome the mud issue that is mentioned on other reviews. Expect mud, it is a farm!

John and his team were always working hard on the farm, but always happy to chat. They were happy to let the kids lend a hand. They got to see the milking and understand how this all worked and help feed the cows and calves and even got to feed a lamb.

There is a good Wi-Fi signal on site, but we didnít try it, so I donít know how fast it is (It is Club Wifi, so high fees do apply if you want this).

Access is easy (all two way roads!). Morrisonís is just down the road (15 mins/9miles) which you will pass if coming from Tiverton direction, so ideal for cheap diesel and supplies.

We will be back soon.

The site is very basic in many ways. The showers, which are accessed via an often dung splattered yard, need up -dating. The newer toilet block is fine. The site will suit families who have young children who can enjoy the space and even the smells and sounds of a working farm. It is not a site I would recommend to older caravanners. There is nothing scenic in my view to commend the site. The owners are friendly and helpful. But the site is a some distance away from shops. I am frankly puzzled by the glowing reviews others have provided. We will not return and cannot, in all honesty, recommend it to our friends. Perhaps to any young family in need of experiencing aspects of farm life.

This place is delightful! Facilities are good, clean and have hot showers. Warm welcome from the owners and other campers. It was a real joy to see how much the children enjoyed helping with the milking too! A fab place. Didn't see any children on iPhone, tablet or other tech objects - there''s plenty to occupy them. Will definitely return.

Beautiful views from rear field. Children liked exploring around the farm. Very friendly proprietors. WOnderful food at local pub-MOunt Pleasant-unfortunately walk is on the road just over a mile with no pavements. Farm shop bit limited with no milk-despite being a dairy farm.

Have to pay for showers, 20p for 2 minutes.

Make sure you double check that EHU working as despite paying £2. 50 night for hook up and checking it with the farmer, I didn't find out for sure until we were about to leave with a flat battery that the EHU was not working after all. Thankfully, friendly camper had jump leads.

Lovely quiet site with beautiful views and friendly people.

Visited this site as my husband used to frequent there as a little boy over 40 years ago and I heard so much about it that I wanted to see it for myself. John who now runs the farm and his mum Stella remembered my husband and it was good to hear all the old stories. I also got the chance to feed the calves and baby lambs, I was in my element. Lovely quiet site, beautiful views, would like to try the holiday lodges next time as they are beautiful

Reviewer: Madlmw78 1 review from this member

I cannot fault West Middlewick Farm. Tent was pitched easily as the ground is fantastic, we found no rocks or stones. Ours was slightly on a slope but that was a bonus given some wet weather as the water drained away from the tent.

We had an electric hook up and paid a little extra, £25 for the week for 5 devices to have WIFI. A must for us as this was a random booking and we had no idea about the area.

The toilet block was cleaned and well stocked on a daily basis. The showers were clean, spacious, had a fab' water force and could be really hot if you wanted; well worth finding loose change to use. £1 showered myself and 4 children with time to spare.

The owners and staff were welcoming, friendly and a pleasure to meet, always happy to talk about their farm and it's workings.

The farm shop was happy to freeze ice packs for us but also provided the most amazing free range eggs among other things like locally sourced honey, meat, cheese etc. I bought 2 dozen eggs home with us they were that good!

There was a large green area with some football goals where the kids could play.

The best part for me was getting hands on with the animals. We had chickens at our BBQ, one of the farm cats came for a belly rub at breakfast time. We watched the cows being milked (the kids got to provide their feed), I got up close and personal with some of the calves, 2 of whom were born whilst we were there. Our children learnt so much about farming and where their food comes from this week, far more than they ever could in school.

Location wise, there are 2 very different towns within 10 miles. A beach is more of a trek but definitely not a reason to go elsewhere, its a fab' location if you want to explore both North and South Devon coasts as its pretty much equidistant from each. There are many National Trust places within an hour. My son loved Surfing at Croyde Beach.

I cannot wait to visit again.
