Great small site, very relaxed feel and a real feeling of space as the pitches are arranged around the perimeter of the field. We were in Lundy field which I think had a total of 18 pitches. We had hook up and quite a few of the pitches had their own wooden picnic bench/table too.

The last mile (approx) to the site is single track but as long as you arrive/depart at the 'correct' times you shouldn't have any issues! As others have said, names are on a board and you then go into the relevant field to find your individual board and pitch.

The small 'tardis' of an office/reception also doubles as a small shop selling local produce e. G. Free range eggs, bacon, sausages, burgers. They also have a freezer with ice creams and lollies. I was really impressed with the information pack we were given (lots of leaflets for various tourist attractions), a list of useful telephone numbers e. G vet, hospital etc - it could easily rival large commercial sites who sometimes only provide and issue the essentials!

The lane is very quiet so ok to walk dogs to do what they need to do but you do of course need to pick up, and especially if they go on site. We were also able to let our two off lead in the field behind Lundy View as there were only one or two units in there most of the time. As they have livestock, you do need to be sensible and check first.

My only downside was the shower block - tiny shower cubicles which made trying to dry and get changed difficult. I have no issues with push button showers, fixed shower heads and temperature as it was warm without being too hot. I'm wondering if there are any plans to upgrade? There are two showers and 4 toilets in the Ladies. If the showers were bigger then this site would be one of my 10 out of 10 perfect sites. I've had to give it a 9 out of 10 for this reason. But, it wouldn't stop us returning.

You can also hire fire pits complete with wood logs and kindling which we did on several evenings which was fantastic. There's recycling bins for glass and tins as well as plastic. Customer service is excellent and Bridget was extremely helpful.

There's lots to do in the area - we went to Westward Ho!, Appledore (Susie's Tea Room is a must as is their high tea for two at 9. 95), Clovelly - but beware it's steep and cobbled. There is a land rover service for an extra charge which will take you down to the harbour and quay and return you to the visitor car park. We don't have children but if you do there's The Milky Way and The Big Sheep nearby.

This site is a basic farm site so there's no entertainment and you need to drive to the nearest pub/restaurant so perfect for a chilled out and quiet break away from it all.

We enjoyed ourselves so much we stayed an extra night and I'm sure we'll return in the future.

Fantastic Site! Wonderfully scenic, went with my family including my two grandchildren with a campervan and a tent. Incredibly welcoming and hospitable, even had trampolines for the kids! The site was very well kept with clean washroom facilities. Can't wait to go again thanks to the friendly and helpful owners and would recommend!

This is a lovely site and the owners are very friendly and helpful. It is well maintained and the toilet / showers are clean. I love the fact you can have an open fire and if you wish the owners drop off the fire pit and wood to your tent and collect it the following morning which is a very nice touch.

You feel like you are miles from nowhere but in reality only ten minutes drive to Atlantic village and Bideford town, with its supermarkets and chain stores, as well as independent small shops. Apparently the site has its own small shop which I didn't use so can't make any comment on.

Thoroughly recommend this site. You won't be disappointed.

Stunning views and walking have to be the main attraction to this site. We were directed to the top of a very wet field which although gave us great views, didn't help when trying to get off site - no bother though because the owner towed us out very efficiently - think he might be used to it! The shower/toilet block in the field was disappointing being very tiny and basic, though it did have radio piped through which was nice. Overall we've paid a lot less for better facilities but that has to be balanced with the views and walking. For motorhome owners note; its miles from any shop we could find.

Had a nice two night weekend stay over a wet and very windy weekend.

The site was well signposted and easy to find. It was nice having booked to have our name written up on the chalk board at the entrance so we knew which field to head for, and also having our name at the pitch was a nice touch. It was good to have a friendly welcome when paying.

Being November, I'd booked a hardstanding pitch and given the rain I was glad about that. The facilities were well kept and modern. The shower lacked a little water pressure but was just about warm enough. There was a good little camp kitchen for washing up with a microwave, washing machine and tumble dryer.

The weather did put pay to the walking we had planned, but there was plenty around in very short driving distance to entertain us.

Will definitely return to this site as in the bad weather we enjoyed it, so can imagine in the sunshine how lovely the area would be.

We stayed here for 7 days as a last minute extension to our holiday, The site managed to fit us in on the top field but without electric as all hook ups were taken. Whilst we had no electric the views on the top field are much better. The owners of this site work constantly to make sure you get the best from your stay. The toilet block was kept immaculate considering the area had been hit with a lot of rain over a short period of time. Everybody I talked to on the site was very happy with the site, the only complaint was that the farmer was not able to control the weather better.

It is ideally placed for visits to the Big Sheep and the Milky Way, additionally only 5 mins to Westward Ho beach. We hope to be back next year. I would highly recommend this site.
