 Have just returned from a great weekend at Zeacombe House. We were delayed on the way down due to an accident on the M5, we phoned to let them know we would be late arriving and this was no trouble whatsoever

The pitches are all excellent and have plenty of room for car, caravan & awning, all immaculately kept. The showers/toilets are very clean and always had nice hot water available.

Just a couple of notes; the site is isolated and if you want peace and quiet with no internet or mobile coverage this ticks all the boxes; The nearest shop is 6 miles away as stated in the web page so don't forget anything;

Please call to book, this is stated on the website but we all tend to email these days and as said previously there is no internet coverage.

To sum up, peace and tranquillity with great hosts within travelling distance of lots to do, we will definitely be back!

 Just returned from an unplanned week's stay at Zeacombe, an adults only site. We phoned the day before arrival to check availability as the weather looked good for the next several days. When we arrived we were surprised to find how quiet the site was, very few visitors.

We were cordially greeted by the owner who offered tea or coffee while we set up. Booked in on their 7 day rate as it's cheaper than paying for 6 on the 'daily' rate.

We were offered the choice of several pitches either in the main park or the 'back' field. We chose the back field as it was furthest from the road and surrounded by 6 - 8ft hedges for shelter. The only downside is the lack of a view from here.

Traffic noise was not a problem and rarely heard. The grass was short and lush, better than our lawn at home. Pitches were massive and all had EHU included in the price (which we didn't use). There were plenty of hard standing pitches for caravans or campers.

Loo's and washing up room were always immaculate and hot water was free and on tap all day, including the showers. Drinking water was at several stand-pipe locations.

The site has a sparsely filled 'shop' (no milk for example) and a handy 'Information kiosk' with the usual pamphlets, books, maps etc. There is no really local shopping, the nearest supermarkets are at South Molton or Tiverton (8 - 10 miles).

We used a (Cobb) barbecue most evenings and other 'off the ground' barbies were in evidence. No campfires though. There were plenty of well behaved dogs in evidence, in fact I think we were the only occupants without a dog.

The surrounding area has several NT properties which we visited eg Dunster Castle, Knighthayes Court, Arlington Court. Of course the area is superb for walking, Valley of the Rocks, Doone Country, Tarka trail, Exmoor and coast. We easily filled a week and could have filled two without difficulty.

This site is somewhat more expensive than we would normally choose but I think the facilities and quietness were worth it (especially if you use EHU). We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves and would recommend the site without hesitation.

Thankyou to Lynn and Pete who were very helpful and hospitable

Reviewer: Tonybriers 3 reviews from this member

 Well what can I say? welcomed by lynn and shown to a splendid pitch. As I saw everyone was. Good size with neighbours either side but loads of room between us.

Grass was well maintained by pete. Spotless toilets and washing up room. All the people that were there was very friendly. You cant believe that two people can do so much work to make this site work so well.

Keep up the good work and we for definite will love to come and see you both again. Lets hope for better weather than this Jubilee year. I'm sure that if pete and lynn could have changed the weather they would have done. This did everything else to please all the customers!

 Quite the best site we have stayed at in the UK. Lynn and Pete do their utmost to be helpful and to make you feel welcome.

Very large pitches, some hardstanding and some good, flat, grass. Immaculate grounds with plenty of discreet bin/water areas.

Shower block was always spotless and has everything you'd want for comfort.

Nice clean dog exercise area and also plenty of country lanes to amble through. To top it all, their on-site catering was a great idea - good wholesome pub-type grub at extremely competitive prices.

 Very welcoming, evening meal service, collect the good grub take it to your caravan/tent, enjoy, just take the dirty dishes back.

Good grassy pitches, well spaced out and several hard standings, water points near to pitches,

Toilet block very clean and well maintained. Separate shower cubicles, one with bar for disabled, does take moments for hot water to come through. Washing and laundry room tumble dryer and ironing,

Dog walk, lots of country walks as it sits on the edge of the moors, Exe valley. Lots of scenery,

Well placed to get to all of north Devon. Nearest good shops are south moulton, Barnstaple 20 mins. Plenty to see and do in the area. 30 mins plus to get to cider farms in Somerset. Caravan/tent spares shop not to far away. Exeter about 1 hour Plymouth 1.30 hrs.

 We visited Zeacombe House as part of our tour of the West Country.We stayed two nights.

When making the booking just a day ahead we were in an area with poor mobile reception and the owner of Zeacombe House without being asked very kindly retuned my call from her land line making the booking much easier than it would have otherwise been.

The site has really large pitches making it quite private and making for a really green site with unspoilt views.

We used the meal service which was very efficient and we enjoyed a nice hot meal.

The one of the shower / sink / toilets was bathroom style which was very convenient.

Whilst at Zeacombe House we were fortunate to see a rare bird a Albino Sparrow.

We visited a great pub near enough to the site The Anchor Inn at Exbridge, and enjoyed a really tasty locally caught fish lunch. We were able to park our camper in the carpark with no problems.

We enjoyed our stay at Zeacombe House.

 This is a lovely landscaped site with generous pitches from a tarmac drive around the site & a very well equipped toilet/shower block and laundry room. The site we feel has all you need whilst away from home. There is easy access with no narrow roads to negotiate. Supermarket - Tiverton or South Molton with all other town facilities. There are 3 National Trust Properties & good walks here in North Devon & on Exmoor. Visited Lorna Doone Valley for a walk & Tarr Steps from Withypool along the river also Dunkery Beacon from Luccombe. Nothing within walking distance of site. We really enjoyed our stay here.

Reviewer: Badpianoplayer 12 reviews from this member

 Just returned from 8 wonderful nights at Zeacombe House site. The pitches are very large and all occupants are purposefully spaced out to get the most privacy.

The bathroom block is very clean, with loads of hot water at all times of day and no waiting.

We tried the on-site food service on our first night and found it to be very tasty, well presented and most welcome after a 4 hour drive and 2 hours of assembling the tent.

The site is well located for Exmoor and I would highly recommend.

 Just returned from an enjoyable stay at Zeacombe House.On arrival we were met by Linda and given a cup of coffee which was very welcomed after an early journey. She also told us of a fantastic 'greasy spoon' where we were able to get a breakfast, we would never had known about this place!

Tents usually go in the back field but as my daughter was arriving the following day we were given pitches in the 1st field so as we could be next to each other and were even able to choose which pitches we wanted.The owners are so down to earth and accommodating, just our type of people.

The pitches are lovely and level and the site was immaculate with well kept grass. All the usual amenities were available, toilets, showers, sinks and separate wash cubicles for privacy and cleaned daily.The wash up and laundry are inside as well so not cold!

You do need a car to go anywhere from site but this suited us as it made it peaceful. Exmoor was only a 5 minute drive away, where we enjoyed a lovely hike.

It was lovely to be able to order food from the site at a time to suit us (meals served between 6 and 8pm) It was piping hot and very reasonably priced. No cooking, no washing up, just take the plates back (although we did wash up as my husband didn't feel right taking back dirty plates!)

There is an information centre on site with plenty of leaflets and mags etc on places to visit and things to do.

The pitches are huge with more than enough room for privacy and the site is beautifully landscaped.

All in all a lovely stay at a fab site and we will be definitely returning and becoming one of Linda's regulars!
