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.

Great site, easy access to the South West Coast Path and a pleasant walk down to Hartland Quay which is beautiful with some amazing rock formations. Parts of the site windy but if you choose your spot carefully it's not a problem. I won't repeat all that's been said about the facilities, they are perfectly adequate and always clean when I used them. Bit of a walk to get to the showers but no problem for me. Fridge and freezer for campers' use, along with a couple of microwaves and a kettle which is a nice touch if you just want to heat up a ready meal instead of cooking. Thought the site was very good value for money. I'll definitely be back!

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.
