Reviewer: Nellnbodge 1 review from this member

 We found this a nice and quiet site by the side of the river Exe. We were offered a choice of three pitches, two on the riverbank and one near to the toilet block and shop area. We opted for a riverside pitch which was excellent with trout to be seen in the clear river water and many birds including the regular visits of the local pheasants. A stroll up to the weir at the end of the site may also give you a sighting of a kingfisher or even otters.

Other reviewers have mentioned the noise from the adjacent road a problem but we cannot offer any complaints on this.

Overall we would recommend this site to all. It is an adult only site due to the river and mill water hazards. The site toilet & shower facilities, dish washing area and shop are all good. Free microwave use facility is great. The nearby Badger's Holt pub offers good food & drink. The nearby village shops sell locally produced food. Also, we recommend the fish & chip van that visits Winsford village square on Wednesday nights.

 We found this site in the Camping and Caravanning Club 'Big Sites Book' and looked at their web site. It looked great and it certainly was!

We too were welcomed with a hot drink when we arrived and also given a choice of pitches. We chose to be by the river, supposing that there may have been some noise from the road. However there is hardly a car that passes after dark. (Talking of dark, the sky is wonderful.)

The site is wonderfully maintained with so many nice touches: music in the shower blocks and washup; free washing up liquid; help yourself herbs for cooking; free use of microwave, iron and hairdryer; lots of well written local walks. The toilets and showers were not quite C & C Club standard but were clean, free, lots of hot water and there never seemed to be a queue.

The Local, called the Badger's Holt, serves excellent food and again with a warm welcome.

Finally you could not ask for a nicer area to explore; the wooded scenery is spectacular and when we went, there were lots of grouse running about the surrounding countryside.

We will definitely try to return to this site.

 Beautifully maintained site in lovely setting. Toilet block and showers spotless if a little tired. River runs alongside dog walk so ideal if your dog love water. Couldn't keep ours out! Badgers Holt very friendly pub serves lovely hot food and dogs are allowed in the bar, there is also a separate dining room.

Unfortunately the noise from the road nearly drove me mad, its a very busy road which runs alongside the site, we were aware of it through reading reviews but never dreamt it would be this noisy.

Reviewer: Barb n Barney 14 reviews from this member

 We spent a weekend here, the pitches are very generous and the setting of the site is brilliant. Our pitch backed onto the road but it didn't disturb us at all. The owners were very kind and helpful - the water wheel demonstration on a Sunday morning is excellent. There are ducks in the brook and kingfishers on the river. The dog walk takes you right up to the weir and is probably one of the prettiest we have ever encountered!

The owners have worked very hard in providing really excellent walking guides for 6 different walks in the area. We did Walk No 2 which is a 5 mile walk, taking you through lots of different areas from forest to water meadows. The instructions were spot on and very easy to follow. We stopped at the half way point in Winsford to eat in the picnic on the village green - such a pretty area.

The loos etc were all very clean and the shop had some nice goodies such as the local icecream!

We shall definitely return - we have 5 more walks to do!

 We had a great time and we are sure to book for next year. The toilets and showers were ok and we did not have to wait at any time although the park was full

The coffee and tea on arrival was just great after those narrow lanes but once there it was well worth it. Thank you very much paul and christine your restoration of that old mill is a joy to see and to actually see it going well

Reviewer: Cdenham 4 reviews from this member

 We loved this site. It is right next to the river.

It was very peaceful.

Facilities very good. Ground was well tended and looked after, grass mown regularly.

Friendly pub just down the road.

The town of Dulverton just a few miles down the road is lovely.

The price of 14 for a night I thought was excellent as we had paid this for a previous site which was just a field and limited facilities.

We would definitely visit this site again.

 This is the second time we have been to this site and will definitely be returning again. Beautifully laid out pitches either by the river of the mill stream and with good sized pitches.

The dog walk area is on site and is very pretty with the river and millstream leading down to a weir. Owners very helpful. There are masses of walks close by and varied scenery with the moors and beautiful wooded valleys. Can't wait to go back. The only negative point is husband thought more Gents toilets would be good.

Reviewer: Tockers 28 reviews from this member

 We were welcomed with a cup of coffee and given several pitches to choose from. Most were flat or slightly sloping all were large and one side was against the road and the other side the river.

We chose the road half way up and it was noisy also we did not get the sun late in the day. Showers were hot but not much room to change and the toilet block seemed like public loos. All was clean and tidy and shop sold basics so take food with you as there are no shops in walking distance.

There wase water in several places and a waste drain for motorhomes and tv booster but only got 5 stations. Location was remote and quiet when out walking but the hills are very steep so not really suitable for cycling. We chose this site for peace and no kids but I was a little disappointed I'm not sure why!

Reviewer: SGThomas 112 reviews from this member

 A very well maintained, adult only site, bordered by the river on one side and the mill stream on the other. The sites are reasonably flat and the EHUs are plentiful. There are many good, welcoming touches about the site; from the pick your own herbs, an extensive information centre and a neat little shop.

The toilet facilities are clean but inadequate, I would not recommend your going there without your own facilities. Owner's comment: It would appear that 'SGThomas' did not find the toilet block, but used the one toilet in the shower block which is about 5 yards away. The number of toilets on the campsite is twice the number required by our licence, and there should not be any reason for queues.

This problem is enough to deter us from returning to an otherwise idyllic site.

 This is an immaculately well kept camping site set between a mill leat and a small river. The owner is happy to show people around the old mill which also comes complete with the odd resident bat.

It has plenty of shower, loo and washing up facilities, even a microwave oven and washing machine.

There's also a separate area between the leat and the river which is perfect for ex deciding dogs or having a picnic.

The nearby pub is also run by a very friendly couple and their food's pretty good too

I've returned to this site numerous times and can highly recommend it, if you like falling asleep to the sound of owls and wildlife you won't be disappointed, although it's close to a road it's amazingly quiet.

First class!
