Reviewer: Famcampers 1 review from this member

We are reluctant to provide a review for nice quiet sites, lest they soon become overrun but in this case, we feel obliged to make an exception!

We have just returned from a 9 day stay.

Vicki has worked hard to create the best truly dog friendly campsite we have ever visited.

The toilets, showers and washing up area are brand new and better than several 5* campsites we have visited.

Be sure to follow the directions to the campsite carefully. We were a little concerned whether we had them right but they ensure you enter the campsite from the best direction to negotiate the entrance. Although the road is narrow, the locals seem both patient and practised at reversing into passing spaces to let tourers through.

The best thing about this campsite is the space and tranquility each pitch offers, even in the peak month of August. Although dogs must be on leads within the campsite, there is plenty of space on each pitch to ensure they can have a nice long tie out rope or can be fenced in via windbreaks etc.

The dog walk is huge and our German Shepherd enjoyed several off lead sessions every day.

The day kennels are fabulous, it's obvious that Vicki really loves dogs and we felt really happy to have a few dog free days out, confident our dog was being well cared for. The price was incredibly reasonable too.

Thanks very much for a lovely holiday Vicki.

Lovely site. Very friendly site owner Vicky. Great views.

Really great for dogs, as field to run in next door to the site.

Easy access to Westward Ho! beach and all shops in Bideford. Would recommend to any body. Great stay. Will be coming back this year too.

The Farm

We booked this at the last minute for a nine day break (two adults, one child and two dogs). What a discovery. A beautiful, small, dog friendly site, smack bang in the middle of a working farm. The landscape on the site is really varied and the farm walk (which I would recommend) is really informative, it is run weekly and lasts over 2 hours. It provides real insight to the conservation work that these guys are undertaking and the history of the farm. You will gather from other reviews that the toilet and shower block are a little basic but I never had to queue, and always had hot water so no real complaints from me. Dogs are allowed run free in the surrounding fields, but on the campsite they must be on the lead.

The surrounding area

We found no shortage of dog friendly beaches in the area. Northam Burrows Country Park was great - it is at the estuary of the River Taw/Torridge with long expanses of sand. , When the tide is out Instow is great, its on the opposite side of the river to Appledore. Bucks Mills is a great dog walk. Clovelly is a must see (but dogs need to be on the lead), and my favourite area was the National Trust beach of SandyMouth with great cliff walks either side (on the SW coastal path) and a great dog friendly beach (which is only sandy when the tide is out).

What a wonderful little site! The owners are friendly and helpful and although basic the facilities never seemed too busy.

This is a very basic site but just what I wanted. Lovely big fields to walk to dog in and the day kennels were very helpful and well priced.

Vicky (the owner) was always happy to help even offering to pop a wash load in her machine when my dog had an accident! all in all very basic but friendly and calm considering the amount of dogs.

For the first time in our lives we are planning to revisit the same site twice! see you next year!

Just got back from a wonderful 2 weeks at Ashcroft Farm.

As most of the reviews state, it's a very dog friendly site

There is a large field next to the site, just pass the shower & toilets.

There is also another 2 large fields to the right & behind the toilets, just follow the path.

We also found just 5 mins drive or a 15 min walk some woods, with a dry path to walk through.

Turn left out of the site, follow the road & first left again, you're find the woods with some parking on the right.

Dogs must be on a lead within the site, we just tied ours to a long rope, nobody including the owner said anything.

Most other caravans had windbreakers around their unit or a pen to keep them in.

Do accept a little noise from the other dogs, as some caravans have more then 1, which never really bothered us.

There is only 1 shower, but never had to wait.

Very basic, but always hot water.

The site is on a slight slope, which was fun with the awning.

I think next time we would park our van down & not across.

The site is off the beaten track & we found the roads advised to take by the owners a little narrow, but the best way in.

You just hope you don't meet anyone as it is really only a single track with some passing places.

The village is only a 5 min drive, it has a costcutter, which is open till 9 every day, there is also a chip shop which is only open Thursday, Friday & Saturday evenings.

No pub in the village, the nearest we tried was the Hoops on the main A39 which is dog friendy, with good food if a little pricey.

Another pub which is also dog friendly is called the the smithy in welcombe.

The nearest big super store is Asda, head towards Bideford A39 first roundabout turn right, turn right again at the Atlantic village.

The only bad things we could tell you, when first arrived they had cut the grass without picking it up.

It was raining & as you could imagine, we were walking it everywhere.

Vicky the owner was very friendly and sorry about the grass and looking at getting a machine to pick all the grass up.

We were also bitten by horse flies quite a bit, so take some insert repellant.

On the whole very relaxing well priced ( 14. 50 with hook up a night ) 2 weeks.
