 Lovely site. Friendly informative staff.

Very clean and well kept.

Loved the dark skies (no lighting on site), fantastic to be able to see the stars.

Good pitch layout.

Well laid out facilities block, clean and tidy.

 This campsite set on a slight slope looking overlooking a lovely sea view sea view. Grass and site very well kept. This was our first site for doing half of the 2MoorsWay long distance walk.

It’s a medium size site with a very modern and clean shower toilet block. I did see laundry there too but not used. There is a small shop attached to reception.

Prices seemed to be fixed and for pair hiking with a walking in with a small backpacking tent seemed high ( 25gbp) no hikers rates so often seen elsewhere in UK.

A big plus was the Beggars Roost pub where bar food was available. Chap running it very pleasant and so is the food

Also nice phone number set for out of shop hours for late arrivals.

Over all a great site just outside Lynton, but expensive for hiking, had we been on holiday with car and a large tent it’s reasonable pricing.

So near town and great views at night, clear sky

 Showers were a bit too hot for comfort.

There were no plugs in any of the wash basins.

All need a mirror above for shaving etc: only two had had them.

Could do with a hook in toilet cubical.

 Great site with wonderful views.

Loved the lack of light pollution at night. Stars were amazing.

Great washing facilities, clean modern and plenty of them. Staff friendly and helpful.

Pitch size was great on the Campervan and tent field. Didn't feel packed in.

Great if you have dogs as well.

 Superb site. Facilities are excellent. Showers and toilets and washing up area spotless.

Great walk into Lynton/Lynmouth and both those towns are a delight for wandering and eating.

Weather wasn't the best when we were there so I'd love to return when the sun is shining.

 Great views from our serviced pitch overlooking the sea. Able to watch some lovely sunsets.

Easy access to the footpaths down to Lynmouth (although beware very steep on return journey). Clear instructions about the best way to access the site given the narrow winding road from the east.

Facilities very clean. Enjoyed a nice meal and beer at the pub next door.

We would definitely stay again.

•Clean campsite with lovely views

•Clean washing facilities with plenty of showers and toilets

•Great walks from campsite ( although a steep walk - approx 1mile) up and down to the nearest town

•Nice pub and restaurant next door

•Friendly helpful staff


•Slightly sloping pitches so in the morning I found myself on the other side of the sleeping compartment

•Not exactly a retreat. Building work for 1 day, noisy group of 3 families until 1am (although staff did speak with them the following day). Also the same parents told children not to play near their campers vans so the children took to playing directly in front of our tent. ? No play area for children. Possibly unlucky week and middle class campers not understanding etiquette of camping.

• through way for cars directly in front of the tent so not much privacy.

 Superb campsite, very clean and well maintained. Special mention has to go to the young man who showed us our pitch and then allowed us to pick the best spot. His name is Tyler and couldn’t have been more helpful! We will definitely come here again.

Toilets/showers were spotless, site is very quiet and there’s lots of space and fabulous views. Tyler (have I mentioned him!?) explained all the local walks to us and I even noticed him carrying rubbish to the bin for a young girl.

The local walks are fantastic (you have to be fit - there are some steep climbs) but you can do them all from the site - we had no need to move our van. On site there are sea views.

Cannot recommend highly enough. And. Tyler. If you’re reading this - Shine On You Crazy Diamond! You’re going to go far!

 Had a lovely time at Lynmouth Retreat! The site was immaculately kept, the toilet block was the best we have come across in all our years of camping! Amazingly there is a dishwasher there too if you really want to treat yourself, to enjoy your holiday more!

The staff were friendly and accommodating, making it possible for a great family trip away!

Good walks into Lynton and Lynmouth from the site, although steep in places.

The restaurant down the road served good food, best to book before your visit.

Covid regulations were clearly displayed making it feel safe for all.

Would definitely recommend.
