A really lovely site. Huge and over several fields but not commercialised in any way. Facilities spotless. A lovely stay, We had wonderful views. Although grass it was firm. Were able to walk over fields with young lambs to Hartland Quay. Thank you.

Returned to Stoke Barton Farm after a few years away. I am pleased to say little has changed. The facilities are absolutely fine and kept clean and tidy. There is loads of space to pitch, some sea views and some shelter if needed.

The Hartland Quay Hotel is a short walk away (15 minutes, more if you stop to look at the scenery). Excellent food and beer. Other than that its pretty quiet, which is just what we wanted.

The coastal path to Hartland Point is beautiful, especially at low tide. The waterfall at Speke's Mill Mouth is worth a look too.

Visited mid week in May so fairly quiet - imagine it would get busy at weekends. Plenty of choice of pitches but difficult to get out of the wind. Large fields with huge open areas in the middle. Friendly welcome from owners. Showers are a good walk from the top fields but there is a toilet block/dishwashing area much closer. The female showers looked new - there were 3 of these from what I remember. Mens were individual ones opening onto the courtyard. There were also two large toilets in this area with baby change facilities. Well stocked shop too.

Did a great walk to Hartland Abbey - great gardens, then down to coast for lunch in the pub, along the coast to Docton Mill gardens for a cream tea and back to campsite!

We just had a two night stay on this lovely site, what a hidden gem!

The amount of space is amazing, only the length of your hook-up cable governs where you can pitch your caravan or tent. If you don't need electricity you can go wherever you want in three massive fields.

Facilities are excellent, toilets and showers are immaculate and cleaned regularly.

The only point to note for caravan guests is that the last mile of the journey to and from the site is very narrow with few passing places, and the actual driveways on site are quite steep and uneven but if you take your time it's OK.

A thoroughly recommended site for anyone who wants to walk the coast path, particularly if you have a dog with you. They'll love it!

We have just returned from a lovely 3 day stay here over the bank holiday weekend.

What a fantastic site, so much space!

Facilities are clean & tidy, plentiful amounts of hot water in washing up block.

One shower I had was a bit cold, but it was late morning so I must have been unlucky with my timing of the hot water. Others in our group who showered earlier that day didn't suffer the same.

Colin & Helen are both very nice and nothing seemed too much trouble.

What a location, lovely rugged coastal walks on the door step, the dog is glad to be home to have a rest.

We will definitely be returning.

Great camp site. Colin, Helen, family and staff very helpful and friendly.

Booked for 5 nights but ended up staying 8. Lovely clean facilities. On site shop very good and reasonably priced.

Lovely walk over 2 fields down to Hartland Quay and the South West coast path. We walked to Hartland Point and back one day which was lovely. Also near by is the pebble beach at Blackpool Mill which is also easy to walk to.

Highly recommend this site. Thank you for a great stay and the opportunity to be a judge for the Hartland Carnival.

Just returned from a week here. We were unsure of what to expect but booked the site after reading the reviews on here. The campsite can be found down a narrow winding lane after Hartland Village in Stoke. The Drive up to the main house / fields is a little rough and bumpy in areas.

From the minute we booked in we were greeted with an efficient and friendly service. Colin the farmer showed us to our pitch offering a choice. We had electric hook up. The pitches are huge and are set around the fields ( 3 to choose from). The centre of the fields are left empty so you can come out as far as you require. Plenty of space for kids and adults to play games. Playpark on one field.

There is a small shop on site selling essentials, homemade cakes, local sausages, burgers and bacon. You can even hire wood burners, buy logs and marshmallows and have a campfire! Papers can be ordered for a 10p delivery charge. Downside no sliced bread for sale ( would be good if could pre order this). Freezer, fridge, microwave and kettle facilities available which is fantastic.

The shower facilities are in the old milking shed for women outside block for men. Adequate rooms and initial problems with water pressure was sorted immediate once reported. Single loo for both sexes by showers in old bull shed ( love how they have used these buildings). Further toilets on camping field in hut with dishwashing room. Radio piped into all rooms.

All facilities were kept spotlessly clean and cleaned throughout the day. Dishwashing room even had drainers ( could do with a bin for food waste).

Local area - on coastal path can walk to local beach (rocky) but gorgeous scenery and rock pools. Hotel with bar, shop, toilets. Walk to waterfalls. Can walk into Hartland about 40min. Ideally need a car if staying here no local bus stop.

Did ask for information on weather and tide times and was told 'didn't know' we had no phone signal or wifi on site so would have been useful to have this information on a board somewhere.

Be aware due to position of site can be windy at times.

Definitely will return a hidden treasure

Excellent camp site and excellent hosts. Stayed 8 nights with great view of church from our pitch. Fortunate to have good conditions and very little rain. Facilities were good, toilets and washup room in the top field and showers down by the farmhouse reception.

Excellent little shop open twice a day with all essentials.

Visiting burger van was OK, nothing more than that.

Access to hartland quay is via a footpath from the top field and a great walk about a mile long, which leads to the wreckers retreat pub by the shore and the hotel. Very good quality food and ales.

All in all would return again without hesitation.

Reviewer: Skiiddy 10 reviews from this member

Only a weekend break but wanted remote, peace, quiet and somewhere that was less likely to have kids - it ticked all of the boxes!

We were sited in a small field with the two pixie huts and two grass pitch's which were away from the main camping and party fields (sounds ominous but the party field is huge with no EHU and very few campers)

Highly recommend The Sweet Chilli Beef Company who are on site every Thursday but were there unusually on the Friday we stayed - yummy, yummy food!

Owners, Colin & Helen, are very lovely, friendly and helpful but the site loses a few stars for facilities well, the ablutions to be precise. They are reminiscent of a 1970's camp site and are really limited in terms of space and comfort.

Generally, they have been converted from old farm buildings with the absolute basic facilities for example, there are only 4 very small male showers within a block that has stud walls with open tops and bottoms. Two have small chairs to sit down & dry your feet the other two, nothing and you will find it very drafty too! If you are a more robust individual, you will find it difficult to move around and there are no basins to have a wet shave. With only one toilet across the other side of the courtyard with a basin, would you really want to selfishly occupy it for a shave? Admittedly, there is another block of toilets and basins in another field about 250 meters away but you should not have to walk between the two to finish off your daily routine. The showers were not hot either and my wife was caught mid way, covered in suds when the water just stopped! She had to dry herself off with rather a lot of soap suds left too! On the subject of ladies, there are a total of three cubicles and again, only one toilet the others being sited in the main field next to the mens.

The location is amazing and the walk to Hartland Quay (20 mins) is very pleasant even if it is a little hilly coming back. It is also mid way between Bideford and Bude and very close to Clovelly which we highly recommend (ticket, 7. 00 for adults, is valid for two days in order to view all on offer).

The farm itself is a working farm so be prepared for the usual noises from livestock which for us, is not an issue.

A well stocked shop within the main farmhouse is open in the mornings until 1100 and in the evenings until 1800. No alcohol sold but local bacon/free range eggs are excellent and you can order fresh bread for the following morning which seems to be growing in popularity.

Would we return? No. Unless/if the showers and toilets were brought up to date which, when you consider the amount of buildings available would not be a logistical problem, purely a financial one which in the long term, would surely reap rewards.

Just back from another visit to this lovely campsite! Glorious weather. Site not busy. All really well kept and clean. Not spoil the at all. Owners are fantastically friendly and can't do enough for you.
