 We have stayed at this site three times this year. It is a lovely peaceful site with plenty full dog walking facilities.

The newer toilet block is clean & tidy, however we found the older toilet / shower facilities untidy & unclean this visit, there were numerous dead spiders & flies etc. All over the block, & my husband had to clean the shower before he was able to use it. It is a shame, but a great little site is being let down by its shower block which really does need refurbishing now.

Would we return. Yes we still would. 
Management response: Thank you for your review. You will be pleased to know that on your next visit, the shower block will have been totally refurbished, and should be a pleasure to use.

 Fantastic campsite. Only drawback we thought was lack of lighting up top end of site and maybe extra shower block top end of site. But other than that beautifully kept site. Welcomed with hot drink on arrival. Very friendly wardens. Choice of pitches, we went on hardstanding but were able to face whichever way you wished, so pithed with awning on grass at side of river. The site was quiet even though road ran along side. More noise from pheasants than road. Would recommend this site to anyone

 This was our third visit to this lovely campsite and we stayed for six nights.

We first encountered this site almost ten years ago and were blown away. Since then if we are in the area, we make a point of staying here.

It's a long narrow site, a single access track with very spacious grass pitches indeed to either side. One side backs onto a small river, the other a mill stream, which is why no children are allowed.

At the entrance to the site is the reception, which also stocks a selection of food and equipment. The wardens are lovely, pleasant and helpful.

Toilet blocks are scrupulously clean, and one small block has recently been renovated to a very high standard. Showers are electric and free.

Being a very elongated triangle the site narrows towards the far end. There we find small non-electric pitches and some hard-standing which I have to say looked very tight - happy we stayed on grass (which is our preference anyway).

This is also the entrance to the dog walk, and I think it's fair to say that it must be the loveliest and most picturesque dog walk in the UK. It's grassy and overhung with trees, with the aforesaid river and stream either side. At the end there is a weir, with benches provided to make the most of the view. If your dog likes water, as ours does, they will be in 7th heaven.

By car the site is close to numerous small towns and villages and excellent pubs. This was fortunate because the local, the Badgers Holt, has taken a turn for the worse since our last visit - we couldn't drink the stale ale and the landlord couldn't have cared less. That's a shame.

It's also, of course, in the Exmoor National Park with great touring and great walking.

I cannot speak too highly of this site.

 Just come back from a lovely break, having spent two weeks at Exe Valley. Thank you Kath and Paul.

Toilets and showers were, as always, immaculate. The grass was also kept low and cut at every opportunity. Fabulous walks around the area.

Such a very friendly site, the wardens are very accommodating, nothing is too much trouble for them. Will be back again next year.

Thank you,

 Exe Valley is a long narrow site with a track down the middle and units on either side. On one side you are next to the river on the other you are next to a mill stream but also the A 396 which is only a matter of feet away. There is a reasonable distance from your unit to the track but neighbours on either side were too close for our liking. The site is surrounded by trees or hedges so there is no view outside the site and all you can look at are the other units. There is a dog walk but this is used by a great number of dogs whose owners don't always clean up. It is limited in size especially when the site is full. Other walks outside the site are either impassable due to muddyness or have the same dog mess problem. The facilities are clean however when the site is full there are queues and the shower I used was dated and small. 
Management response: We are sorry you did not enjoy your visit: the poor weather and rain on the night you stayed did not help.

The layout of the campsite is pictured on every page of our website and also on our brochure, so you would have been aware that you would be able to see other caravans.

The campsite is spread over an area of 4 acres, whilst our riverside dog walk measures a further 300 yards by 20 yards with well maintained turf and trees, and we are surprised that you found either of these areas too small for the number of units on site.

We do not own the 'other dog walks outside the site'.

Our showers are popular because they are free and provide a strong flow of adjustable hot water, so occasionally there may be a wait in the early morning at high season.

 What a pleasure to have had a week at Exe Valley, Bridgetown.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we left we were made to feel very welcome in idyllic surroundings.

The free showers & loos were spotless - and there was a minimum of fuss, bother or unnecessary rules to restrict you - something that isn't always the case on adult only sites. The pitch? Very generous & flat.

Some super walks for the dogs with perhaps one of the most pretty dog walking areas available with the sparkling River Exe babbling alongside.

Badger's Holt pub a very short walk away (two local ales on hand-pump) and Bridgetown Cricket Ground was stunning.

If you want a club, a pool & razzmatazz perhaps this isn't the one for you - but peace and quiet in a fabulous and unspoilt location - then seek this one out! Exmoor a short drive away - Dulverton not too far + the towns of Minehead & Tiverton only 1/2 hour distant.

 A wonderful warm welcome on arrival by Paul and Kath with a most welcoming cup of tea after a very early start. Then given the choice of spacious flat pitches. The site was spotless, quiet and ideally positioned for exploring the beauty of Exmoor.

The showers and toilets were spotless. We will definitely return. We would recommend this site.

 Spent the last couple of nights here. Loved it to bits!

The wardens are all very friendly and helpful. No issues with being ' off centre ' to the pitch marker unlike some clubs I could mention! The weather was excellent and the conditions superb.

The showers and toilets were a little. Bijoux, but clean and tidy.

There were walks that the wardens had put together which worked well. Only one issue was the public footpath had been left to grow a little wild for our liking, but it turned out ok. Grounds are well cared for and the shop provides a fair amount of bits and pieces.

If it's peace and quiet, then this is it! All in all. Well worth coming again.

 This is the first time we have have visited Ex Valley campsite but it certainly won't be the last! the site is is so tranquil and relaxing and the facilities are great, someone asked to have the showers updated (please don't) they are great you get a lovely hot shower and they are kept spotless all the time.

Kath & Paul are lovely people and could not have been more helpful Kath is always off around the site checking on pitch availability and Paul is out cutting the grass as soon as someone moves off of their pitch, I said to Kath that it would be nice to have a mirror on the main road as you can't see back down past the house but she said no need as Paul will see you out onto the main road (which he did) thanks Paul(Mr Mirror Man)there is also a lot to see and do around the area which we did every day look forward to our next visit SOON thank you Kath & Paul

 There is very little I can add to the recent reviews. We had such a welcome from the owners at the Mill (warden's day off!) with a welcome cup of tea or coffee. We chose our pitch by the river and enjoyed 5 nights at one of the best campsites I've been to. The site was almost full but there were no problems with the showers. Indeed I rarely met another person using them at the same time. Yes, they may be slightly dated but please don't change them! They were hot, fully adjustable, not on timers or fixed to the ceiling. There were plenty of hooks for clothes etc. Paper towels and soap were freely available in the shower and toilet blocks. Dog walks on site, on the opposite bank of the river and further afield (all on sheets in the information shed)were lovely. We will definitely come back regularly and look forward to the mill wheel in operation on a Sunday morning which we missed on this visit. I could quibble in a tiny way that the wifi hubs 2 and 3 weren't working so connection was only available close to the shop, but had I not needed to be in contact with various family members that wouldn't have mattered.
