Just returned from a short weekend break and I must say the site is in a fantastic location. The village of Beer is one of the prettiest we have seen. The site is mainly a static caravan park but has recently upgraded a few pitches for motorhomes, touring caravans, camper vans and tents and they have done a wonderful job. All pitches are flat and level, but there are two pitches for motorhomes & caravans that have a bit of a rise up to them, so check your clearance before attempting, but once negotiated, they offer wonderful sights across the bay. The clean and modern toilet block is right opposite the pitches and all the electric & water points are very close. Most have grey waste points as well. Just a short downhill walk into Beer for all the village amenities, the local pub being the first. All in all a lovely site but the only thing is they do not reserve pitches, so you have to take your chance. Best to phone before you leave to check availability. Definitely worth a visit (but beware of the hills!)

Spent a week at the start of Sept. , our 5th time at Beer Head.

Lovely clean comfortable caravan, beautiful views as ever, and nice weather. Excellent walks for our little dogs.

The site is kept in excellent condition at all times by Matt and the rest of the staff.

The meals from the shop, which is run independently from the site are lovely and tasty.

Perhaps the gentleman who runs it could hone his people skills a bit but hey none of us are perfect, LOL.

See you next year Beer Head.

Well I must have gone to wrong site, it was huge not small! Like a small town! Plus a small sloping area for too many tents, squashed in. No flat standing for motorhome either. I parked behind what I thought was reception, lady was cooking, asked where to park, somewhere round there she said unhelpfully. Man was there he disappeared out back. I asked a couple of more questions and left. There was a black ford Ka blocking my motor home in, my partner went back in and asked if it could be moved, no I am at work, move the picnic table! It was the man that disappeared. I struggled get out, he then appeared and lent on his car and watched me struggle to get out of small space. I mentioned he was not working but watching me struggle. He was offensive. I say no more. Would not stay there if it was free.

Management response: Thank you for spending the time to review our park.

The shop and the camping area have both been updated this year (2014), which we hope is a great improvement. The Shop which has always been let out to tenants is now a Bistro as well, with great views across the park. Importantly it is under new management, and to date we have had nothing but great reviews of the food and the service.

We have re-landscaped and tiered the camping area this winter. Each camper will now have their own plot for tenting and we have level hard standings for touring caravans and motorhomes. Water and electric is available. Again to date people have given us great feedback.

We are still not taking bookings for the camping area, working on a first come first serve basis but will give it this season to collect all the feed back with regards to making any more changes.

We hope the improvements we have made in the last couple of years are helpful: all roads have now been renewed, a new TV transponder means perfect TV reception (in a particularly difficult area), rainwater capture for toilet flushing and solar panels to improve our carbon footprint, the new lodges and of course the bistro and terraced camping area.

Once again many thanks for everyone's reviews; the comments are helpful and the support is encouraging.

We have just got back from a fabulous 4 night break camping in our tent at Beer Head.

If you are looking for complete escape from hectic life and work this is the place to go!

I doubt very much you will find a camp site with better views! There was nothing more relaxing than coming out from the tent every morning to the most spectacular views of the sea (even if the sun wasn't shining)

Pitching up is a bit of a free for all, there are no allocated pitches so arrive early or on a non busy day! we arrived on a Thursday afternoon and had our pick of the whole tent area! By Saturday evening the field was pretty much full!

Also the camping area is on a hill! So get there early so you can pick out the flattest patch of grass!

The toilet block is right next to the tent area and lit well enough that we never needed our torch for popping to the loo late at night! toilets were also spotless and very nice, they seemed brand new or at least recently built.

Shower block was up a big steep hill but it was all part of the fun! The showers could do with updating and are a little bit old fashioned - however none the less they did the job and were perfect temperature!

A few people have mentioned about the 50p, yes you do need 50p coin to operate the showers however I found this was plenty of time even for hair washes and shaving legs!

If I had to say only one negative about the site I would say it is not suitable for people who arnt very mobile due to the amount of hilly walking required to get around the campsite.

But if it wasn't for the hills you wouldn't have such fantastic views of the sea every morning!

For kids, there is no camp site club house! But I grew up coming to Beer Head every year! You just have to go back to the old school and let the kids make their own fun! There were plenty of kids who seemed completely entertained all day long with a just a pack of water balloons!

Fantastic time and cant wait to go back!

Lovely little campsite right on the south Devon coast. As the other reviews have said, it is geared more for static caravans, but we had no problem finding a pitch large enough for three tents and were able to park right next to our tents, but I can see that in busy times you may have to plan where you are going to park as there is no on road parking or car park nearby.

The Pros

- Wonderful views - truly magnificent surroundings. Easy access to Beer and the coastal path that leads to Branscombe in the opposite direction.

- Lovely clean toilet blocks with a power point should you wish to use a hairdryer, straighteners or even charge your phone!

-Very friendly staff in the shop. They stock all the essentials and the prices are quite reasonable. They also serve food, on real plates! On Sunday I also saw people pre-ordering Sunday lunches. Other food available in the shop includes fresh catches of the day such as crab, lobster and various types of fish.

-You can pay by credit/debit card at the office.

The Cons

- It's very hilly (but hey, this is a cliff top campsite!)

- The office is right at the entrance to the site, i. E. At the very top of the hill

- The shower block is also right at the top entrance to the site. They are a little dated but perfectly clean and spacious inside. Operated by 50p coin token meters.

Overall I'd definitely recommend this site to others - just please don't tell everyone otherwise there won't be any room!

This camp site is situated on the top of the hill just outside the village of Beer and the views across the coast towards Seaton is spectacular. However, tents tend to be squeezed in where there is a space and getting your car near your tent for unpacking/packing can be difficult.

The toilets are plenty and kept clean. The showers are quite a hike up the hill and are quite expensive at 50p but you do get enough time for a good wash. There is a shop on site that sells ready plated meals and even cooks bacon baps for your breakfast if you cannot be bothered to do this for yourself!

A nice site overall, perfectly situated for exploring this area.
