 We had an electric hookup in the large field. Grass short plenty of choice, quiet in the evening.

Went to the local pub down the road, very good food and lovely ale.

Had a good 3 nights getaway, walked to Beer one day and a trip to Sidmouth another.

Facilities very clean.

 We booked here with other friends in 6 tents and one campervan in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic. We were apprehensive about holidaying, but this seemed as safe as we could get for a holiday.

The lanes are narrow, and it's best to avoid coming up from Branscombe beach if you have a camper van, but it's easy to find. It's a short walk to the coast path.

We camped in the large field behind the static vans. This had a mix of touring caravans, campervans, and tents. There was always lots of space, and our van friends used an electric hook up. Our mobile phone network had very poor coverage here, but that wasn't a problem.

The site is very quiet at night, quite dark at night, and the starry sky wonderful to a city dweller. There is a relaxed feel to the site, but everything was very clean and tidy. Payment is by cash or cheque only, no cards. We paid £14 per night for our pitch.

The toilet block was small, modern, and very clean. During our stay it was closed for around 75 mins twice a day for thorough cleaning (check the times, as they are not well notified, and there is no alternative loo). There were many hand sanitiser points around, and disinfectant sprays in toilet cubicles and showers. Signs dictated only 2 folks in the washrooms at any one time. Each shower cubicle had an electric domestic type shower that was free to use. Lots of solar PV panels on the roof too. The wash up room was closed, but I guess they were focusing the cleaning on the loo and shower area and wanted to avoid campers being in together.

We went into Sidmouth each day, so didn't explore local shops. The nearby Fountain Head pub has a good reputation, as does the Sea Shanty Beach Cafe in Branscombe (it's a steep walk to the beach).

We recommend this site, and it would be first choice when we come to the area again.

 We loved Berry Barton Farm. I enquired by email initially and they responded quickly and let me know the price and that they had space and advised me to just turn in, pop in to the farm house, pay and off you go, which is exactly what I did.

The roads in a bit narrow, but in a campervan it was fine. The site is easy to find and sat nav took us straight there.

Check in at the farmhouse across the road from the site and then up through the statics to reach the camping field. The field was huge and square and had a few electric pitches around the edge, but as we were non hook up we found a space that gave us sun all day and sheltered from the wind.

The facilities are absolute first class, two showers, one toilet and one urinal for gents, and the same, but two toilets for the ladies. The showers were hot, spacious and perfect for our needs, and the facilities were al clean and tidy. There is a paid for laundry and also a washing up area free to use.

We didn't explore the area as we were only stopping for one night around 16 hours, so we decided to walk through the site, out the back and across to the S W Coast Path, which once you are on offers miles and miles of walking in both directions with great views in all directions.

I loved this site and would be back for a stay again if I am in the area. We paid £12 for two adults and one dog in a VW camper. Bargain.

 The roads to this site are not suitable for motorhome or caravans

Donít know how or why the council allows a site on roads like this

We would have not used the site if we would have known how narrow the lanes were

The grass was too long

The site is ok for small cars and tents

If you go the wrong way a 20deg Hill

A front wheel drive motor home would not get up it in the wet

 Chose this sitefor a short break (one night) because of proximity to Branscombe village. The Fountain Head pub is nearby.

As already described camping field is large with units gravitating to the edges. Grass reasonably short _noticed some mowing of pitches without, taking place but do not expect a bowling green like surface.

Good price 16 with hook up £2 less without.

August and good weather but not crowded - it was midweek but I was told that it doesn@ge uncomfortably busy at weekends.

Very relaxed _no pressure to vacate pitch by particular time.

Coast path iess than half mile away.

Access roads very narrow and demand competency in reversing if necessary.

We will return

 Just returned from a week at Berry Barton. We normally stay at Oak Down but left it late this year so couldn't get in. We were pleasantly surprised with the cost- £14 per night with hook up (half the price of Oakdown) and no exrta charges for awnings extra persons etc.

On the plus side -as said Reasonable prices, Huge touring field with plenty of space for children's games etc, Great location if you like walking (close to coastal path) Modern and clean toilet block with free showers if a little small (2 Showers and 1 wc in the gents)

Negatives - Grass long in touring field, Site would benefit with some signage (ie Drinking water, reception, toilet block, touring field) Pitches are not marked out so it could be a bit of a free for all, Access to site is through very narrow, long lane. There are passing points for cars but there would be problems with two caravans meeting. We arrived late and left early and had no problems.

Overall opinion -Value for money if a little out of the way Would use again

 Superb site geared up to static caravans. However, if you are in a tent, motorhome or touring caravan there is a separate field which hadn't been mown in a while, resulting in a lot of very wet grass due to the dew in early September. Quite different to the statics area which had nicely manicured grass. Wash up room containing one sink, washing machine and tumble dryer. Ladies had 2 very nice showers with plenty of room. 2 basins and think it was 3 toilets. Don't know about the mens. There was no freezer for ice packs nor a fridge for campers' use. Think really this is best treated as a static caravan park, the facilities just aren't there for camping. Facilities would be hopelessly inadequate during busy holiday periods. Though I enjoyed my few days there I would not want to spend any longer and it is doubtful I would return. Took two attempts to find someone to pay and never saw anyone cleaning though the facilities were reasonably clean.
