 Very clean. Friendly staff. Great location.

And a good pub with great food next door.

What more can you ask for.

We had a great 4 day break.

Will be coming back.

 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.

 Had a lovely week here. Very nice staff, unfortunately we didn't catch their names. They helped us out with an extension cable as ours wasn't long enough.

Facilities very clean, very modem, I think must of had a refit. Covid rules set in place and adhered to by everyone.

Walk to Lynmouth very steep down but we did it got a taxi back for about 7 pounds.

Lovely site would recommend

 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

Reviewer: Samwel 1 review from this member

 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.
