Great camp site. Colin, Helen, family and staff very helpful and friendly.

Booked for 5 nights but ended up staying 8. Lovely clean facilities. On site shop very good and reasonably priced.

Lovely walk over 2 fields down to Hartland Quay and the South West coast path. We walked to Hartland Point and back one day which was lovely. Also near by is the pebble beach at Blackpool Mill which is also easy to walk to.

Highly recommend this site. Thank you for a great stay and the opportunity to be a judge for the Hartland Carnival.

Just returned from a week here. We were unsure of what to expect but booked the site after reading the reviews on here. The campsite can be found down a narrow winding lane after Hartland Village in Stoke. The Drive up to the main house / fields is a little rough and bumpy in areas.

From the minute we booked in we were greeted with an efficient and friendly service. Colin the farmer showed us to our pitch offering a choice. We had electric hook up. The pitches are huge and are set around the fields ( 3 to choose from). The centre of the fields are left empty so you can come out as far as you require. Plenty of space for kids and adults to play games. Playpark on one field.

There is a small shop on site selling essentials, homemade cakes, local sausages, burgers and bacon. You can even hire wood burners, buy logs and marshmallows and have a campfire! Papers can be ordered for a 10p delivery charge. Downside no sliced bread for sale ( would be good if could pre order this). Freezer, fridge, microwave and kettle facilities available which is fantastic.

The shower facilities are in the old milking shed for women outside block for men. Adequate rooms and initial problems with water pressure was sorted immediate once reported. Single loo for both sexes by showers in old bull shed ( love how they have used these buildings). Further toilets on camping field in hut with dishwashing room. Radio piped into all rooms.

All facilities were kept spotlessly clean and cleaned throughout the day. Dishwashing room even had drainers ( could do with a bin for food waste).

Local area - on coastal path can walk to local beach (rocky) but gorgeous scenery and rock pools. Hotel with bar, shop, toilets. Walk to waterfalls. Can walk into Hartland about 40min. Ideally need a car if staying here no local bus stop.

Did ask for information on weather and tide times and was told 'didn't know' we had no phone signal or wifi on site so would have been useful to have this information on a board somewhere.

Be aware due to position of site can be windy at times.

Definitely will return a hidden treasure

Excellent camp site and excellent hosts. Stayed 8 nights with great view of church from our pitch. Fortunate to have good conditions and very little rain. Facilities were good, toilets and washup room in the top field and showers down by the farmhouse reception.

Excellent little shop open twice a day with all essentials.

Visiting burger van was OK, nothing more than that.

Access to hartland quay is via a footpath from the top field and a great walk about a mile long, which leads to the wreckers retreat pub by the shore and the hotel. Very good quality food and ales.

All in all would return again without hesitation.

Only a weekend break but wanted remote, peace, quiet and somewhere that was less likely to have kids - it ticked all of the boxes!

We were sited in a small field with the two pixie huts and two grass pitch's which were away from the main camping and party fields (sounds ominous but the party field is huge with no EHU and very few campers)

Highly recommend The Sweet Chilli Beef Company who are on site every Thursday but were there unusually on the Friday we stayed - yummy, yummy food!

Owners, Colin & Helen, are very lovely, friendly and helpful but the site loses a few stars for facilities well, the ablutions to be precise. They are reminiscent of a 1970's camp site and are really limited in terms of space and comfort.

Generally, they have been converted from old farm buildings with the absolute basic facilities for example, there are only 4 very small male showers within a block that has stud walls with open tops and bottoms. Two have small chairs to sit down & dry your feet the other two, nothing and you will find it very drafty too! If you are a more robust individual, you will find it difficult to move around and there are no basins to have a wet shave. With only one toilet across the other side of the courtyard with a basin, would you really want to selfishly occupy it for a shave? Admittedly, there is another block of toilets and basins in another field about 250 meters away but you should not have to walk between the two to finish off your daily routine. The showers were not hot either and my wife was caught mid way, covered in suds when the water just stopped! She had to dry herself off with rather a lot of soap suds left too! On the subject of ladies, there are a total of three cubicles and again, only one toilet the others being sited in the main field next to the mens.

The location is amazing and the walk to Hartland Quay (20 mins) is very pleasant even if it is a little hilly coming back. It is also mid way between Bideford and Bude and very close to Clovelly which we highly recommend (ticket, 7. 00 for adults, is valid for two days in order to view all on offer).

The farm itself is a working farm so be prepared for the usual noises from livestock which for us, is not an issue.

A well stocked shop within the main farmhouse is open in the mornings until 1100 and in the evenings until 1800. No alcohol sold but local bacon/free range eggs are excellent and you can order fresh bread for the following morning which seems to be growing in popularity.

Would we return? No. Unless/if the showers and toilets were brought up to date which, when you consider the amount of buildings available would not be a logistical problem, purely a financial one which in the long term, would surely reap rewards.

Just back from another visit to this lovely campsite! Glorious weather. Site not busy. All really well kept and clean. Not spoil the at all. Owners are fantastically friendly and can't do enough for you.

Such a beautiful place for a campsite. I think it's everything a campsite should be. Peaceful! Never over crowded even at peak weeks. Visited twice this month, spending initially a week and then a long 4 night weekend, as could not wait to get back.

Owners are incredibly friendly and helpful and check to ensure all is ok for you. Small on site shop opens at either end of the day selling pretty much everything you might need. Facilities are basic but alway really clean and are checked regularly during the day. Small playground for kids too and plenty of space for them to run around - don't get me wrong that in no way means here are screaming kids everywhere! Beautiful surrounding area with lots of great things to do. Beautiful walks including to local bay which has amazing rock pooling to keep the children happy for hours.

Definitely planning to go back next year and lots more. A real understated gem that's good for the soul!
