 Great views. Very friendly staff. Modern pitch with water and electric. Toilet blocks were closed due to restrictions.

Fantastic location for walks along the coast. Waters meet walk is gorgeous.

Walk into town and back is very strenuous and not for the faint hearted but great exercise! Just a stunning location.

We would stay again

 Very clean, tidy but relaxed site. Great views from many of the pitches and the most friendly, engaging and helpful managers. We were a late booking but were made to feel most welcome from arrival and throughout; from walking routes to taxi firms and local hostelry.

Some spectacular, if moderately challenging walks from the site to POIs like Lynton/Lynmouth and Watersmeet (NT).

An absolute delight (only sorry that I didn't catch their names).

A few more items in the shop might be useful but may have been to do with this year and late season.

 Nice site with friendly and helpful staff. Good access to paths for walking to Lynmouth and the coastal path.

The pitches are not all level but is not an issue.

Reviewer: Anniel 1 review from this member

 Beautiful location,

Recommend for keen walkers as the walk down to Lynton and Lynmouth is a steep one but well worth it for those up for it.

Really friendly owners and clean and convenient facilities.

Reviewer: Samuel 1 review from this member

 We made the trip to Lynton as a last minute getaway and broke down en route, but Colin and Jill were very understanding and allowed our car to be recovered to the site so we could still have a day away. They also allowed us to use a short cut to access a camping field by walking.

The site itself is lovely, well kept and maintained with beautiful views of the valleys and sea. The toilets and showers were clean and tidy with ample hot water to be had. There was plenty in the way of sanitizer and disinfectant during the current virus period.

The shop was plentiful and well stocked, and the cafe barn was a nice addition with a good selection of hot foods, lovely cakes and lovely pasties. The cider from the farmís orchard was excellent.

Word of warning The walk down into Lee Abbey and through the valley of the rocks is quite the challenge but doable even if your fitness levels arenít great you just might have to take a breather or two.

Overall a very pleasurable and enjoyable stay.

Reviewer: Trevor + Jo 107 reviews from this member

 Good view across to Wales and evening sun from the front tent field. Well maintained pitches with plenty of space, although some sloping. Great facilities with memorable water pressure at the wash hand basins! Helpful, friendly staff etc.

Good location for exploring Lynton, Lynmouth and Watersmeet. You are on top of a hill. It will always be a steep climb back, wherever you venture by foot. You will get fit!

Pub at the entrance, good for beer, didn't try the food.

Heddon bay, the Hunters Inn, Wringcliff bay, Porlock, Ilfracombe is all on the doorstep. Fantastic location for exploring the area.

My only criticism was the constant floods around the wash hand basins. The water pressure was such that it was impossible to press the push top taps without spraying water everywhere. More than enough to blast your toothpaste from the brush!

That aside, an excellent spot.

 Lovely quiet site, plenty of toilets and showers which are regularly cleaned. The staff are really friendly and helpful.

The site location is great for Combe Martin and Ilfracombe. Lots of walks to Lynton and Lynmouth from the site.

The price per night is on par with other sites. There is a pub next door which opens at 5pm but it isn't noisy.

I gave it 7/10 for child friendliness as I don't have children so I'm not really sure what there was for them to do as it wasn't on my radar!

 Check in quick and informative nice pitch number 1 quiet and secluded however there was no sun late afternoon so made sitting out quite cold.

Clean showers and toilets and clean area for washing up. Lovely pub next door but unfortunately they didn't do food Monday and Tuesday the two nights that we were there which was a blow as taxis to and from lynmouth are expensive.

Fabulous walks from the site to lynmouth snd Watersmeet and can you get onto SWCP Which is about. 20 min walk.

Will defo stay on this site again wardens and staff very friendly.
