 This was a great campsite for a family with children. It was well run, quiet at night, great facilities and in a lovely location.

There were loads of sinks and showers, free and plentiful hot water, a 'mum and child' shower cubicle with sink and toilet which was perfect for me and 2 children (aged 2 and 8) to pile into after a day at the beach.

There was a laundry with 2 machines and 2 tumble driers (a godsend when we arrived with a damp duvet in the roof bag after a drive down in torrential rain!).

Bus stop right outside the site if you want to get around without using the car.

Great play park in the shade of the trees, with a zip wire which the kids loved.

Nice fish and chips from the on site shop. 2 minute walk to Croyde for a lovely pub (The Thatch) and ice cream parlour. Little shop and post office in the village. Very bustling.

A fantastic place to holiday. And this is without mentioning the amazing beach only 10 minutes walk away. Would definitely return to this site.

 Just returned from yet another great holiday in Croyde Bay, North Devon

After 18 years of three holidays a year to Bay View Farm we still totally love it and would never dream of going anywhere else.

The site is very well maintained and clean, with the shower block regularly cleaned and all pitches kept neat and tidy. (I just have to remind my self that I'm in the country and insects are part of that :), with me being a towny in all)

The perfect place for a relaxing or active holiday where you can go to the beach or just out for the day and you know all your belongings are totally safe with the on site staff looking after everyone very well.

The on site 'chippy' is well run with all the usual fried food and pizza's etc too.

There's plenty to do in Croyde itself with great pubs with 'lovely' cold drinks and 'yummy' food.

The beach is really clean and safe for the kids and us :)

Though I have to admit us scottish don't do much surfing but we have given it a go anyway. GREAT fun - good job there's life guards.

Please go and enjoy for your self in the delights of this great camp site & beautiful village. You will not be disappointed.

 Lovely site with fantastic views across Croyde Bay. Very picturesque. Our pitch was one of the few that didn't have a view from outside the tent but we were happy with our spacious and sheltered corner plot.

Lots of showers so we never had to queue and even when the block is closed for cleaning they keep one shower and one toilet open.

The kids loved the play area which was situated at the very top of the hill so that you could see them playing from your tent.

The shop sells milk, bread and eggs and other basic stuff as well as offering an ice block freezing service for a 30p charity donation.

The staff were friendly and helpful at all times.

A very quiet site - all noise stopped instantly at 10pm and was still quiet at 8:30 most mornings.

The village of Croyde is a very short walk way with a few nice restaurants / pubs and a great ice cream parlour.

The amazing beach is a 5/10 min walk across the road and through the sand dunes.

We had a wonderful holiday and would not hesitate to return to this site if we stayed in Croyde.

Squires Fish restaurant in Braunton is an absolute must - they don't take bookings but if you turn up at 7 ish you should be seated within 15 mins.

 Lovely friendly campsite, the family owners were very friendly and helpful. The facilities were plentiful and clean. With an added bonus of a small family run chip and pizza shop on site. And a great tucked away children's playground. The site was very quiet and all families and couples.

Croyde has a a great beach and the campsite was within an easy walk to it.

We stayed with our grown up children and their partners and we all agreed we would come back as individual couples and as a family. Over all a great place to visit and a super campsite

 One of my favourite places in the world!

Brilliant campsite run by a friendly no-nonsense family.

Lots of showers all with seating and hot water (plus a new mother and child larger cubicle this year). Excellent Fish & Chips. Playarea for kids is great for all ages. Shop sells amazing bread (as well as milk, camping essentials etc).

Didn't try pizza but croissants fab in the morning for 1)

I love the fact that a member of staff does a drive by every evening to make sure no one is running riot. They lock the gates at 11pm which is great for security.

Pricey - yes, but hey I pay it every year!

 The second year we have been to this site. Good sized hard standing pitches, showers and toilets very clean but a bit dated. Fish and chip shop and pizza shop on site but cannot comment as we didn't try.

The best thing about the site is its location, in the village within a short walk of the pubs, shop and beach. Recommend 'The Thatch' for good pub grub but can get very busy and 'The Blue Reef' for a nice relaxed dinner. Great walks and views to be had walking around the coastal path and the surf museum in Braunton is well worth a visit.

The only thing that is going to stop us returning is a no dog policy during high season and we have just adopted a dog!

 Had a friendly welcome after a long rainy drive and was given a map showing our pitch and the facilities. The pitch was hard stand with plenty of room for our awning. The showers were hot and powerful and we never had to queue for any facilities which were kept very clean and checked regularly. They are very strict about wet suits being taken into the showers, but do provide large containers of water outside so people can rinse there suits out.

The site is well positioned being 2 mins walk to the village centre and 5 mins down a path to the beach and what a beach it is. Golden sand, plenty of space, good surf and patrolled by RNLI lifeguards (who do a great job keeping everyone safe). We ate in the Thatch bar a few times with the food being good and reasonably priced, you must try their ribs, they are huge, tasty and look like something Fred Flintstone has for dinner!

There is a bus stop outside the site and we took the bus to Braunton and Barnstable. The buses seemed good value at 3. 50ish for a ticket that allowed you to get on and off the buses all day.

Overall a great week and we are already talking about going back for 2 weeks next year!

Reviewer: Garratts 1 review from this member

 We have just come back from a wonderful week in Croyde. The campsite was brilliant, one of the best I have ever used.

The showers/toilets were plentiful and clean, the staff were so friendly and the on site Pizza and Fish and Chip shops were yummy!

It is in a brilliant location, just 5 minutes walk to the beach and a couple of minutes walk to the village housing 4 lovely pubs, two ice cream parlours, gift shops and a grocery/post office/bakery.

This is going to sound sad but we did miss our wi-fi, we couldn't check on weather/sea conditions etc.

Other than that we absolutely loved this quiet site and can't wait to go back!

 We love this site and have been coming here for over 10 years. The staff are always friendly and welcoming.

The kids play in the park at the top or in the field where there is usually enough room to kick a ball; and the field at the bottom is great for flying kites.

The toilets are showers are plentiful and clean. When the kids were little there is a sink to bath them in.

Overall it is a great site and we hope to return here for many years to come.

 We spent a wet and wild few days at this site last week! We were using our vw camper for the first time! The site is well located with an easy walk to the village and a slightly longer walk to the beach - was ok for us with surf boards etc. Felt longer on the way back after a hard day in the water!

We had a flat battery - inexperience with our new Zig converter - and the site staff very helpfully gave us a jump start.

The weather was terrible on the Thursday and it was good to see the staff helping people put down awnings to save them from the wind!

Toilets, showers dish washing very clean and no queues. Nice to have the radio playing in this area.

Fresh bread/croissants in the morning from the small 'Pizza Hut' was a god send. Delicious but slightly pricey fish and chips also available on site.

Would use again - but I agree with previous post that it is a bit expensive but you are in Croyde!
