Lovely peaceful site - long drive from the road which means it really is a long way from anywhere!
Very spacious pitches with the ones with EHU separated from each other by little hedges.
Massive central grassed area which is great for the kids to play on.
Toilet block warm and clean with some of the best showers we have ever come across. Toilet block can be seen from almost every pitch so great for the kids to go on their own.
Shop no longer open so need to stock up before arrival as it's 10 mins or so to the nearest local shop and 15-20 mins to the nearest supermarket.
Owners and wardens really helpful and friendly.
The distance from anywhere was the only downside for us as with young kids it was too far to walk anywhere so we had to rely on the car for all journeys. But this is personal choice and lots of people would equally love this instead!
An excellent website making it possible to click on your chosen pitch to book, is a nice touch. Also named pitches gives better feel!
Driving up a long farm lane means it is very peaceful, and hearing woodpeckers, owls, etc, was lovely. Large pitches, clearly defined by hedges (serviced ones with own tap and electric hook-up) with choice of gravel, grass, or half-and-half, are very good. Plenty of space for families with children to play without disturbing everyone else, plus a 'fun fountain' with jets that squirt up from the ground, although that does look a little run down.
The shower block is probably among the best - large cubicles, chairs in each one, plenty of hot water, and spotlessly clean.
We did not see the owners but you check in via an internal phone. Free wi-fi if you need to order your grocery delivery, but we drove to Tesco at Launceston about 5 miles away.
Very large pitches at this site. Looks like it is part of a farm/on farmer's land, but has bene well designed with a huge playing area in the centre of all the pitches (the pitches surround/look over the playing area/huge plot of grass). All pitches seem to hand EHU and a nearby water supply. Al have nice names (we stayed in Magpie Retreat. Something nice than 'pitch 2')
There is a 'majoc fountain' in another field. I think this is a kid's thing (wasn't on when we stayed) but I think its a load of fountains that spurt out of the ground and kids run through them) A nice idea, although position right next to a large block of some kind with gravel shoveled up it. If the owner sorted that out, it would be great for the kids)
What made this site stand out was the brand new toilet & shower block. Its like entering a spa! Massive showers and good number of toilets. Owver seemed friendly enough - left you to it. Bit of a lane to drive down but this site is a great location for the Lyford Gordge. A must if staying here (especially if you are National Trust members) - great day out and fantastic waterfalls to take in. This site was great for us as a pit stop on the way back from Cornwall up to North Wales. Will prob stay here again on our annual Cornwall hol!
Lovely site, with outstandingly spacious pitches :) and what has to be the best shower /loo block on offer! Quiet, close to Roadford lake and other Devon attractions. Beautiful rolling Devon countryside and lovely views all around.
I notice that several reviewers talk about the absence of nearby shops, and the on-site shop has now closed, but owner said that many people now using Tesco and Asda to deliver on site - easy as each pitch has its own name.
Pub at Bratton Clovelly, 30 minutes walk on beautiful track, looked great, but dog owners note that it doesn't accept dogs, so we had a half outside and left. (You can stand on a 3 sq ft of stone floor in entrance to pub with your dog, but not go any further into any part of the pub with carpet, just to be strictly accurate).
Visited in May for the first time and had a great time. Facilities nice & clean and good showers. Children had a great time in the large open space in the centre of the field. Good sized pitches.
We booked online and never saw the owners, seems everyone was just left to do things properly, which they did. Quite a lot of thought has gone into the site. Very peaceful.
A bit stuck out on a limb, but you cant have everything. We walked from the site on bridleways to Roadford, some lovely countryside.
Visited the Cloveley Inn, had high expectations following reviews, but whilst atmosphere, service and beer was really good, the food was disappointing. I would go again, but just have scampi & chips or similar. We parked in the village hall car park and the children played in the park for a short while before we left.
Pitches on the west side of the site are slightly sloping so you will need decent levelling blocks.
Overall a really nice site with a nice feel to it. Children (8 & 10) loved it. Clean site + happy children - perfect!
My wife and I visited this site during August and after getting over the initial shock of the very long farm track to the site we were very pleased.
The site itself is well maintained with spacious pitches only surpassed by one other site we know of which in fairness will remain anonymous.
We normally choose adults only sites as our lives mostly generate around children and it is nice to have a break! However, if your kids just want room to let off steam without being a 'nuisance' to others, then this is your site due to the large central field and separate play field.
The toilet block is lovely and very clean all day, with powerful (almost sadistic) hot showers.
There is an equally clean washing up area as part of the block but getting water that is hot enough to wash up in is problematic most times of the day. (perhaps it is diverted to the showers!)
There is a small site shop with essentials which is opened for an hour or so mornings and evenings.
There are 3 supermarkets in Okehampton (Waitrose, Co-op and Lidl) all off the same town centre roundabout and a Tesco in Launceston just off the A30.
Roadford Lake is 10 minutes drive away and has a lovely visitor centre and cafe' serving snacks and hot food, sunsets over the lake are amazing! Beth Cottles pub / restaurant just outside Okehampton do a very good value Sunday carvery but gets busy!
Loads of places to visit in the area, including National Trust properties.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed this site and will return very soon.
