 Stunning campsite with great sea and beach views.

Friendly and very well laid out with a great mix of different sorts of sites depending on how much protection you want from the wind,

V dog friendly and lovely people running the site.

A longish way from any pubs but not a problem for me.

 Amazing holiday. The site is very close to the beach but entrance to the site is a bit hairy! Although the beach is very rocky not easy to walk on.

The showers on site are few. The toilet blocks and showers were lovely and clean. Can't fault the site as long as you like simple.

Nice to have a catering fan a few nights a week. If you don't want to travel there isn't a great deal of shops/ restaurants around.

Owners were very friendly. I can't comment on child friendliness as we didn't see any as they were back at school but there was a play area for them. For us it was great.

 Gorgeous location between the coast & the hills, with access to what is essentially a private (albeit stony) beach.

Very tight gateway off the main road, then a narrow, winding road - probably a squeeze for big motorhomes & caravans.

Facilities were modern and clean. The shower block is quite a walk from the beach adjacent fields - the little toilet/pot washes based in the fields are very useful but limited in both number & facilities (only 2 toilets and a tiny handbasin). The showers in the main block cost 20p for 3mins - they're hot enough but small cubicles, and there isn't anywhere to sit/put your clothes other than a single hook (and nowhere for soap in the shower).

There are visiting food vans sometimes - there was a crepe/waffle van the morning we were there. (The crepes were fine but not outstanding. And it would have been nice if they'd sold hot drinks too. )

Staff were friendly but only seemed to respond to email/confirm online bookings once a day so I'd recommend calling if you need a quicker response.

Covid-19 modifications: Check-in was done remotely and the shop was closed. I didn't see any santiser provided (unlike some other sites) but the facilities were cleaned several times in the day, and there were some posters up regarding how many people could use the wash areas at any one time.

 A really lovely location, I was on the bottom 'Beach Field' which basically adjoins the private beach. Was given a pitch number before going and checked in by phone due to covid restrictions.

Each tent pitch has an electric hook-up but you need the caravan attachment. In the corner of the field is a unisex toilet area with 3 cubicles and 2 sinks to wash up with piping hot water.

There is a clean private beach with a jetty for launching boats off, though the waters are shallow even at high tide. It does have a tight entrance if you're planning on taking either a caravan or motorhome.

There is a shower area and van selling waffles in the other areas of the camp not too far away.

 Beautiful site, returned a few times now, just love it here.

The site is well cared for and we loved the little camp area for a group set up too.

Close to the running stream and the toilet block which was always immaculate.

 Nothing to dislike here, met a lady on the beach, she has been coming here for over 40 years, says it all realy, A friendly reception and advice,

Given the pandemic understandably facilities were limited, but we were so thrilled to be there, and will be there again in the future,

Many thanks to the owners, and again Thanks. Rating from me, my wife and the dog Excellent 👍👍👍

Reviewer: Jintsy 1 review from this member

 The location of this campsite is stunning BUT it is let down by the facilities. There are only three showers in the ladies and three in the gents for 65 pitches.

The facilities have seen better days and cleanliness left a lot to be desired, the mop and bucket left to clean were a disgrace, I tried using it to rinse out the shower and the mop left it so filthy I had to spend the next 15 minutes cleaning both the mop and the bucket as both were so dirty, even worse you have to pay for the privilege, 20p for 3 minutes, advise using flip flops at all times. Also the showers are not great, a circle of water with nothing in the middle, but the water was hot.

If you are paying for electrics please be aware that the rules you receive on arrival state you can only use the for lighting, cool boxes and charging electronic devices not cooking etc. , there is nothing on the website telling you this.

The site entrance is not for the faint hearted, is a steep single track road with lots of trees and shrubs and a number of turns and only one mirror, needs more.

We met a very aggressive 4 wheel drive half way who literally kept driving at us whilst we reversed back up the hill, no thanks, then they proceeded to make the car behind us reverse out onto a busy main road, luckily they were the minority but really needs a better system of entry and exit especially if you are towing.

On a positive note being able to have campfires on the beach was wonderful. This site could be an absolute gem, but needs investment in the facilities, and more day today management of the whole site, especially around the shower blocks.

 Site although has brilliant scenery, areas are very exposed to high winds.

Booked for a long weekend and only stayed one night. Got back after a walk to find tent completely blown apart all poles snapped and full of rain water. In land the conditions were nothing like.

Would recommend asking for a sheltered pitch.

Will not return.

 Could be an amazing campsite but the shower block and toilets let it down badly. The three shower cubicles for all the women on the site are very small and get very wet. There's nowhere to put anything down and it's incredibly difficult to wash a child in if you need to. There's also no area to sit and get dressed. Not only that but the water from the other showers runs through your cubical and straight out the front door. The smell isn't great and has a general unclean feeling. The small toilet up in the field had no hot water to wash up and barely any water pressure on the cold tap. Was quite shocked on reading the rules that electric was not to be used for cooking or heating as the daily price for the hookup was quite steep.

Access to the beach and the stream running through the site was the only saving grace for us this trip.
