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!

 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!

Reviewer: Badsey 1 review from this member

 Friendly and welcoming hosts, and the cup of tea we received on arrival hit the spot. Our pitch was level and in a very peaceful corner opposite the shop, water close and electric hook up even closer.

The walks were fantastic and everything was in spitting distance too, we heartily recommend the Badgers Holt pub across the road, the landlord Keith was friendly and the home cooked food was out of this world, you really have to try the steak and Exmoor ale pie!

It's the little things that did it for us. The help yourself to herbs garden by the shop, the nicely stocked shop, the picturesque setting, the peace and quiet and of course the weather too.

If I was going to find a down side, not that it really was one. There just aren't enough showers for the amount of pitches, but its such a lovely site I almost hate to say that.

We will all be going back again this year, oh and one more thing, only have one pint of the addlstones cloudy cider if you walk the 1 mile to Winsford, you have been warned!

Reviewer: Lizziee 3 reviews from this member

 There's lots of things to like about this site, although for me it isn't really my cup of tea, being very orderly and regimented.

What I liked:

Nice large, flat, riverside pitch

Well mown grass

Good, clean facilities

Very handy and safe dog off-lead walking area

Good pub serving excellent food (the venison was to die for!) on the doorstep

Handy location for many of Exmoor's delights

What I liked less:

- On arrival, having driven for over 4 hours, we failed to notice the signs asking to report to reception and only saw that the shop was closed so assumed we were to help ourselves to a pitch. As we were nearly finished erecting our tent, the owner appeared to say that we should have been on the next-door pitch, and made us feel very unwelcome. When I went to the reception to pay, he made sure that he made all the changes he needed to make because of our 'stupidity' (how I felt, not what he said!) in front of me. I felt this was very poor customer care, especially as the next day he put 'reserved' signs on other pitches, so could easily done that on ours! We spent all the time there feeling faintly guilty.

- As mentioned previously, the site is very regimented, with everything 'just so'. I'm sure most people like this, but it's not my thing.

- The road was noisy (it's a main road) and there was noise of one sort or another (a strimmer or Chain saw and, on one evening, a woman wailing!) for hours every afternoon and evening we were there.

If you are after suburbia-in-the-countryside then this site is perfect, but if you like to feel you have gone somewhere a bit different and wild it may feel rather twee and parochial.

 This was a lovely site. We were next door to a babbling brook which the dogs loved. There was a super dog walking area and a pub within walking distance. Walking in the area is superb and we were spoilt for choice.

We were not crowded and the facilities were clean and comfortable.

There was plenty of free information on where to visit and the managers were friendly.

If you have a really big unit the way in could be tight but with a bit of assistance we saw one of those huge demountable units go out so it's not impossible.

 We had a wonderful stay at this site, the pitch size was ample it was easy to find and our two dogs had a great time as the dog walking area at the end of the site was perfect. An enclosed area with access to the river so they could cool off. Any dog owners interested in this area should definitely visit this site.

The shop was well stocked and the site was easy to find. Toilet block and showers were fine, very clean.

Reviewer: Anidav 7 reviews from this member

 Lovely camp site, excellent shower / toilets / facilities. Loads of room really spacious quiet, very laid back week, we were lucky and actually had sun!

Pub walking distance and really good food, roads were a little scary as busy and narrow. Dulverton really lovely and excellent supermarket for good food. Would definitely go back.

 Brilliant! Brilliant! Brilliant!

After much deliberation we decided to try this site. There was only two concerns:

1. Mixed reviews about road noise

2. Never been to an adult site only

Well, let me tell you. It was bliss! We arrived at 8pm on Friday evening and the owners welcomed us with a free hot drink. We were able to choose whichever pitch we wanted and whichever side you go you have the relaxing noise of water running through. Just a small point: if you wish sun in the morning (until 5-6 pm) use the left side of the side (as you drive in); if you prefer sun in the evenings but not too early in the morning use the right handside.

Imagine, trees, water, lots of pheasants and peace. That was our weekend. No road noise (you would not believe the road adjacent to the camp site is an A road - I would say is more of a country road) no kids noise, no loud music. Complete tranquillity.

Facilities: all good and free hot water. What more can you ask. Electricity and co-ax cable 2.50. You can't go wrong with that! All in all for two nights, a dog electrics and awning 26!

Lots of walks from campsite from 3 to 8 miles to suit all. The information hub has all the routes and instructions printed for the circular walks. Brilliant. Massive exercise area for dogs at the end of the site + relaxing bench by the weir. Perfect site if you have dogs.

Pub: 6 minutes walk, civilised with no big screen (ACE!). Food good, ale ace especially if you like real ale. What more can I say: I will be back

Reviewer: Prof9 4 reviews from this member

 Spent Easter Weekend at this site our Icarus 500 tent was pitched on the mill stream side on pitch 5 with ehu which was near the services and the only noise was from the water coming out of the mill which was not to much of a problem,

Very nice and friendly owners who were very helpful and welcoming with a cup of tea and hotcross bun.

Wash area and showers with plenty hot water and piped Radio two, clean and well maintained, small shop and information place with guides on local walks freely available.

Will definitely be returning in the future and as an adult only site nice and peaceful with sounds of water and ducks who welcome you when you arrive, a most relaxing and pleasant stay.

Would certainly recommend and thank you
