Didn't have long to create a proper impression of the site as we were there for a short stay which was cut shorter due to some not so great weather. The site was easy enough to find, albeit down some winding narrow roads (which was expected).

The owners were very friendly and helpful and can't be praised enough. The site is a farm and the camping part seemed to comprise 2 large fields and 2 small fields. Nice kids play area with a section for football with proper goalposts. Small basic shop in farmhouse for essentials open twice a day.

Being on the coast it was fairly exposed and open to the elements, especially wind which was our big problem. Views out to sea from field with play area were breathtaking, as they were from above the cliffs and rocky beach.

I'd love to go back to this site but having young family need some settled weather to make it an enjoyable experience. Last week in August not the best time for that I suppose and we're not hardened campers.

We've just got back from 9 nights at Stoke Barton Farm, we had a brilliant time, the site is lovely & spacious, with beautiful sea views, there's also a play area for children in one of the fields. The toilets/showers were always clean and there's a well stocked shop on site, the homemade cakes, pasties & quiche were delicious!

It's in an ideal location for exploring North Devon, with Clovelly & Bideford close by and the closest place to join the Tarka Trail for cycling is at Bideford.

We'll definitely stay again next time we travel to Devon.

We stayed at Stoke Barton farm for 7 nights (booked 9) in August. It's in a nice location with sea views from some of the unsheltered pitches. The facilities are very basic with only 4 toilets and showers per gender. Queuing was never a problem however, despite the site being full. The showers are very small, with no control over temperature, and the scalding hot water was too much for our 5 year old. The shop is open for a few hours a day with some basic essentials and a load of old clothes for sale! Nearest shop is in Hartland (1. 5 miles). The tourists are not very cycle friendly in their X5's etc, so we tended to walk or drive everywhere. The walks are very nice with fantastic views, but that is really all this place has going for it. We won't return. Unless you get very lucky with the weather the campsite gets battered by the wind. It's not family friendly at all, with a small playground made up of what looks like donated argos garden amusements. Given the size of the site, improvements to the showers should be top priority. One family wash room with controllable water temperature would make a big difference.

We can completely and unhesitatingly recommend Stoke Barton as a campsite, a location and a holiday destination. The farm is wonderfully placed in a completely unspoilt part of Glorious North Devon. The team in charge run it unobtrusively with excellent services and friendly management. The local area gives you one of the most iconic sea views, pub, quay, walks, lighthouses, rocky beaches, magnificent weather which you can enjoy.

The actual camp site is spacious and peaceful. Views are stunning and you won't want to go home!

Love it to bits……we'll be back! Thanks Helen and Colin!

The Gibbons family and friends!

Just spent a perfect week camping at Stoke Barton farm, the views from the hay meadow over the sea are so unspeakably gorgeous that I suspect they may actually increase life expectancy. The facilities were great - loos, showers, laundry and washing up areas were all clean, well maintained, a pleasure to use. The owners were really welcoming and relaxed, encouraging us to choose to pitch wherever we wanted and Colin was keen to reassure us that if the large group camping in the same meadow as us were a noise nuisance he would deal with it - there was so much space between us that there was very little chance of any disturbance and actually, they were no bother at all.

The play area looked so good that we're planning to return with those of our children's friends that we like so they can go trampoline-crazy while we sit in the sun listening to the larks and quaffing cider. The farm shop on site is small and perfectly stocked with lovely local produce - bacon, eggs (sold individually), fudge, honey, what else could you possibly want? The walk down from the campsite to Hartland Quay is a sequence of some of the most beautiful vistas imaginable and offers the reward of a crab sandwich and pint by the sea while watching peregrine falcons swooping down from the cliffs. This campsite has gone straight in to the top 3 all time favourite campsites for us, exactly which ranking remains the subject of cheerfully heated debate.

We visited this campsite as a last minute visit during half term due to great weather. I phoned up in advance to check there was space and found the owners to be very friendly and welcoming. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and told where to find a pitch (although it is your choice where to pick). We found a great spot in the field with the play area. Lovely generous pitches with plenty of space. The centre of the field is left free as a meadow so there is plenty of space to run around and beautiful sea views from every pitch. There were other fields, some of which had electric hook up. We don't use electric so went in the field without it.

The children loved the play area, it had a large trampoline, several slides, swings and seesaws. Also a large football area with 2 goals. Our 4 and 5 year olds spent most of our 3 days on it, having a wonderful time and making friends.

The facilities were very clean and well maintained. There was what seemed to be a new block in our field with just 2 toilets and a small washing up area. Just cold water but very clean and with solar fairy lights at night. There was then a larger toilet block with more washing up facilities in the next field (not a long walk) which was very clean and tidy every time I visited. We were very happy with them. We didn't get round to visiting the showers on this trip. There was a barn with freezers/fridges in it and plenty of information about local things to do.

The campsite shop was large and reasonably priced, open for a couple of hours in the morning and in the evening. Campfires are allowed on site but only in a brazier. That's fine, we hired one from the owners for only £1. 50 and a sack of wood for £5 and had a lovely fire in the evening looking out to sea. The immediate surrounding village of Stoke Barton didn't seem to have much in it (although it is very pretty) but it is a short drive to Hartland which has various supplies shops and a good chippy. From the campsite you can walk down to the coastal path, which was stunning. We also walked to Hartland Quay (only a 20 minute walk, even with children) for an icecream and a bit of a splash in the sea. There's a pub there and another shop.

Overall, we were very impressed and will definitely be back. A little slice of heaven. It is a very relaxed campsite in a beautiful spot. There are rules, but nothing taxing. Excellent for families. Everyone was very friendly and you could see the place being looked after.
