Lovely surroundings with lovely views and walks nearby. Basic but clean and efficient facilities. Lots of space for tents, no set pitches, so you can really get away from the rest of humanity if that's what you like. (though you may be visited by free-range ducks and chickens) The wonderful friendly owners who will ensure you are comfortable and happy. A lovely old fashioned family camp site.
We have used this site for a couple of years now and have enjoyed every visit. The weather was with us the last two visits with warm sun every day all day.
I do believe that any site you visit will be ideal for some but disappointing for others.
If you want a quiet, relaxing, friendly, helpful, country feel to your break. Then this is the place for you. Alison and Adrian are always willing to consider and accommodate your requests, even helping when we had problems with our van. The animals are a constant amusement with the daily duck convoy round the site on a par with the changing of the guard.
If you want modern toilet block with under floor heating, landscaped site with ornamental pond, pub with children's club and activities, site shop, full service pitches then this is not the site for you.
It is basic but that is its charm, you can store your van on site and it can be waiting on your pitch when you arrive.
Great views and a two minute drive down to Ilfracombe
The facilities are basic but cleaned regularly, an unavoidable fact is that they will only be as clean as the last person who used them. True with even the most modern site.
On arrival I will say the site has the wow factor. Beautiful location well set back from the road - you can still hear the road at night. The owners are super friendly and there are always fresh eggs. We had a very large spacious pitch which we needed as we have a large tent. The pitch looked directly onto the field which had sheep, alpacas, ducks, hens and geese in. Brilliant for the kids. The site also has a horse riding establishment on the same site and a quad biking facility. Now the down side. The shower and toilet blocks were grim to say the least. I ended up buying flash and cleaning them for my children to use. My husband said the men's was as bad. They need a really good clean with a jet wash - goodness knows what's smeared on the doors, walls or floors. The showers need the curtains changing. The pot wash area had a previous washer uppers dirt in it for 4 days and there was no hot water. When asked when it would be fixed I was advised to fill up the discarded washing up bowl with hot water from the shower block across the way. In a word grim. If we didn't have so much kit we would have found some where else to stay due to the poor hygiene and the caravan storage which blots the views. We could have stayed down the road with a new shower block and pool for the same price.
This really was a relaxing break, We had everything we needed, Peace Quite, and the ability to walk to Ilfracombe via the public foot path, the walk down took about 30 Min's and the ride back via the bus about 10 Min's at a cost of £1. 55 per adult and 70p for the dog.
The facilities on site are adequate, Piping hot showers, taps in the field and an electric hook up, all made for an enjoyable time, We have been visiting this campsite for several years now and I always tell people that this is the type of camping we had as children in the 70's,
It is so nice to talk to other campers who clearly like the laid back approach, be assured that help is always at hand, If you require a busy noisy hustle and bustle campsite with expensive shower blocks and shops/bar to frequent, then this is not the place for you, this is a traditional family run campsite with traditional family values, plus a few animals thrown in to look at,
We have now stayed here 3 times this year, and we all love it.
Mullacott Farm is like a second home. The people who run it are friendly and put themselves out to help you, if at all possible. We had a broken tent pole, when we came in June, and they were able to locate one that would fit, from a local camp shop, nearby.
The farm has loads of animals, for the children to go and see, and they have even been allowed to help feed them. We only had to ask. Alison, Adrian, Caroline or Bryan are always on site, either working in a field, with animals, or in the B&B, or generally around the farm.
I have mainly got to know them when I see them first thing, cleaning the showers and toilets. They are very knowledgeable about the area, and are happy to have a chat.
The showers and toilets are basic, but always clean. I donít understand the other poster, as we were staying during the Easter holidays, as well as over the Jubilee, and apart from the water, or soap foam from the previous user the showers and toilets were clean. There was soap missing for one day, but it was filled again the next day. The showers arenít fast, certainly not a trickle, but they are always hot. They arenít power showers, just regular electric ones.
The main things that keep us coming back, apart from the friendly owners are the fact that there arenít marked pitches, and you wonít get told off for having your guy rope over onto next doors pitch. The children have a lot of freedom to ride their bikes, play cricket / football / rounders and the farm sell delicious sausages, eggs and bacon, which is the basis of our camping breakfasts.
If you want a family friendly holiday, with freedom, and basic facilities then you canít go wrong coming to Mullacott Farm.
The site is a basic field with hook up and water facilities. It's quite uneven but that wasn't a problem for us in a caravan. It's quite exposed to the wind so be aware! The downside to the field I thought was the motor home storage which makes you feel like your camping in a car park but It's pleasant enough. It's a working farm with lots of different animals for the children to look at. The owners were helpful and friendly the odd time we saw them. My biggest disappointment was the toilet and shower facilities. They were not the cleanest to say the least. There was no soap in the toilet hand dispensers for the whole week we were there. The showers were hot then cold with no power, often just a dribble. I thought £25 a night was a lot to pay for what you got. I have stayed in much nicer places for less money but that's just my opinion. Ilfracombe is a 5 minute drive away or for the more fit and able an hours walk over fields but on the way back it's VERY hilly and hardwork even if your quite fit, not suitable for everyone.
