 My wife stumbled across this site as she was originally looking at BandB accommodation. However, as we were also looking for somewhere quiet and secluded to be with our tent, this fitted the bill admirably. Although we often frequent adults-only sites nowadays (unless we are with one of our grandchildren), each pitch is so isolated from another that it really didn't make any difference.

The tent pitches are without EHU but do have a water tap on the pitch which is convenient. The pitch we were on was huge and could have probably accommodated two more tents (except that there is just the one car parking space), so we had loads of room. The pitch had a gentle slope, with lovely views. There was another pitch we could see in the distance (c. 150m away) which was more shaded during the day, but we enjoyed the evening sun on ours, even though it had been very hot during the day.

Somewhat less convenient were the wash block and washing up room. However, it is clearly stated on the website that they are approximately 300m away, so you have been warned! Having said this, it was very nice having one's own private bathroom complete with a bath! I loved the little artistic touches which were evident in all the indoor spaces (bathroom, washing up room, and games room/shop). Although we didn't have an EHU, there were places where one could charge phones. There was also a fridge/freezer and a microwave in the washing up room, together with a good-sized table. The latter would be useful in poor weather in particular. There was no chemical toilet disposal point.

Being on a working farm, there was some related machine activity, (sometimes rather early, ) especially as it was haymaking time when we were there. However, as it had to be parked near the track down which the machines came, it did mean that the car got rather dusty!

The pricing structure was a little unusual I thought, and it meant that the longer one stayed, the more competitive the price became. For two adults it was 16 per night, plus a one-off fee of 8. For eight nights, therefore, it would work out at 17, which is very reasonable.

The site and surrounding area were generally quiet, with only a little occasional road noise from the A361 in the distance.

The site is well-situated for things to do and places to explore in the North Devon area, including Lynton and Lynmouth, Lee Abbey, Ilfracombe and Barnstaple. We brought our bikes, intending to do some of the Tarka Trail, but the weather was too hot for us! The farm itself is large, and we could have explored more of this on foot, had we not run out of time. Cycling directly from the site would have been very tricky, due to the narrow access roads.

I should imagine that this could be a very useful site if you were with people wanting different types of accommodation all on the same site.

Jackie was very friendly and helpful. Her family provided us with a fire pit (which, in the end, we didn't use, ) and also bricks to help raise our BBQ off the ground.

The animals added interest, especially the Jacob sheep, and Pedro the peacock, along with peahens and chicks.

All in all, we had a good time. It was just a shame that it was too hot, but that's not the site's fault, and we hope to do some of the things we didn't manage to do on another visit in the future.
