Just spent 6 nights at this great site waking up to fabulous views across the bay each morning. The site was a little soggy in places in heavy rain but the large amount of space more than made up for any damp patches. Within hours hard core had been placed to ensure vehicular access.

The beaches at the Northam burrows were great and safe for our 5 year old and the ample space on the site meant that her and the other children had plenty of space to play.

The owner was more than accommodating with finding us space to plug in a cool box.

The facilities whilst basic were always clean and the shower hot.

This site is a great family site and excellent value for money. The site was full of families with children playing but was always quiet by 9pm.

The only slight concern are the narrow Devon roads to get there.

Two great supermarkets close by and The Big Sheep is worth a visit.

We stayed here for one night to air out our canvas tent, we were greeted by the owner, very nice gentleman.

The ehu was in actual fact an extension reel that ran from the barn to wherever you wanted to pitch, so even those without ehu hook up can use it (at an extra 2 a night)

Parking was 1 (which we found strange)

However, the site is kept clean and well maintained, There is only one shower cubicle in the toilet area, and dishwashing is done in the sink in there too.

Lovely area and scenery, right near the coast, ample spacious pitches.

Idyllic, breathtaking, relaxing, stunning views. Just many words I can use to describe this site. This site is just a credit to camping. We stayed here with our children last weekend. What a great holiday we had! The Dr was very helpful and made sure that we were well catered for! It has two toilets a shower and 4 hook ups in the barn with a washing machine for your use at a charge. The site has space for 5 caravans and there are fields surrounding that during our stay had cattle in. Our children thoroughly enjoyed this site and they were able to run freely. The site overlooks the sea in the distant which you can access via a walkway up the lane. It is a rocky path and not for the infirm. Leading up to the site you travel up two very narrow lanes which you do feel you may not make it but you do. It may just be the width of your caravan but you will get it to the farm. The turning space in the yard is tight and we did end up unhooking our van and turning and reattaching to our car in the end to make it an easier turn. If you like peaceful relaxing basic camping this site is for you truly back to beautiful nature! We shall be returning to this site again as our whole family did not want to come home it really was a fabulous little gem of a site.

This quiet certified campsite on a working family run farm provided the venue for the best holiday in Devon we have ever had. We had a warm welcome from the charming farmer and like all the pitches had a wonderful sea view across Bideford Bay incorporating Clovelly village, Hartland Point and Lundy Island, perfect to experience the spectacular sunsets. The farm has it's own beach accessed directly via the coastal path which is on the farmland. Our children loved the rock pools and catching prawns, and we saw lobsters and Bass caught by other campers. We are particularly interested in birdwatching and saw at least 25 species on our first day. The coastal path provided sightings of a pair of Black Grouse and the sounds of the Grasshopper Warbler. A bonus was the free range eggs, homemade jams and local honey available from the farm house. We have made a booking for the summer 2012 and can't wait to return to this peaceful and relaxing venue.

We have just come back from a 10 night stay, its 10 per night on hook up too. We stayed in the small field near the farmhouse,its the one in the photo. Its surrounded by hedges so you don't notice the wind, but it the main field its very open and it blows off the sea. The toilets and shower are cleaned everyday and sinks to wash up in. The site itself is lovely and the farmers nice as well. If you are towing a caravan you have drive through an open gate and its very tight, you cant do it in 1 go. Its about 10 mins down to the pebbly beach and it very quiet, great if you got dogs. The main beach is westward ho 3 miles away. Its a lovely beach great for the kids, just check on the tide times because the beach is completely covered at high tide.

This site was ideal for us (mum, dad and three kids 8, 5 and 3). If you are looking for a site that is now like little meadow used to be before it became a 'cool' campsite, look no further.

The facilities are basic but are very clean and look like they have recently been given a lick of paint to spruce them up a bit. There are two toilets, one (WC and large washbasin) attached to the farm house and the main toilet in the camping field. The main toilet also houses the washing-up point and shower and if someone is using any one of those facilities, the rest are basically off limits. That was never a problem as the site is very small and numbers limited. We never had to queue for the toilet and simply took showers when the opportunity arose.

As for washing up, that can wait, or you could use your own bowl. The shower runs hot and is free. The electrics run off standard domestic 240v outlets, so make sure you take a 3 pin adapter for your extension cable.

The Dr is an absolute gentleman and regularly pops into the camping field to check that everybody is OK and give weather updates to any campers who ask. There looked to us to be 5, possibly 6 at a push, pitches in the main camping field. There is space for another 2 or three tents in the orchard and in July / August I understand that the Dr also allows upto 5 tents in to the adjoining field. The site is already fully booked for July and August 2010. It seems that word has already got out about this site! we will most definitely be returning to this site, assuming it isn't booked up!
