 Brilliant staff. Can't thank them enough for helping us organise a surprise for my Dad.

Facilities are more than adequate and clean. Great location for exploring the local area.

 We had a wonderful stay at this site in May. A delightful, friendly couple made us feel very at home.

The site is not flat but don't let that put you off, as there is always a space you can pitch and the views are wonderful. It was a joy to see two sheep walking towards me one morning, on my way back from the loos.

There are gorgeous walks from the site, which is good if you have a motorhome but be warned it is quite hilly, but it certainly gives the legs a good workout.

All in all a great site which we would love to return to.

 This site is situated at the top of the valley so can be a bit on the breezy side.

There seems to be some ongoing work here to upgrade it, some more hardstandings have been added and a couple of log cabins, all in the main field where you will find the seriously outdated toilet block but this is due to be refurbished at end of 2019 season as I understand it.

There is a second field that seems to be all grass pitches and slightly sloping. Lynton, and then Lynmouth can be walked from the site down a very steep, winding lane, it is a killer coming up so if not fit then the bus maybe your best option.

The bridleway walk towards The Valley of the Rocks is also a good one, but again, all uphill on the way back. We did have an issue whilst we were there in that the field referred to by previous reviewers for dog exercise and ball games is no more, the landowner has leased it to someone else who was willing to pay more than a nominal fee for its use, so the dogs have to be exercised off the site.

 What a great site in a fantastic location, it is a typical club site good clean toilets and showers, helpful friendly staff, even though they were closing for the season in a couple of weeks.

If you want somewhere quiet and peaceful this is the place, sometimes I felt I should be speaking in whispers.

The walk along the bridal path Lee Bay is really scenic and worthwhile, carry on into Lynton, but don't be tempted to walk up the hill back it's only a mile but the hill is a bit of a killer far better to jump on the bus.

Be sure to follow directions in book not sat nav.

 What a lovely quiet site! Neat and tidy, beautiful views and most importantly, the friendly, relaxed and obliging welcome.

Site pitches are pretty level, in fact, the hard standing we elected to take at the top of the site was absolutely level (the best we've ever had!). The grass pitches, despite a busy summer, are fresh and green with all credit to the management who encourage flexibility in positioning thereon.

Facilities are clean and there was plenty of hot water. There's a footpath nearby leading down, down, down to the Abbey (Christian Conference Centre) near Lee Bay and the Valley of Rocks (not to be missed) and walk on to join the well made-up coastal path with stunning views leading to Lynton where can be found cream teas, ice cream and a regular bus service (about hourly) which will get you back up the hill to within a short (relatively level) walk to the site.

Would we return here - yes: it would be our first choice.

 Lovely, clean, quiet site. Good space between pitches. A little quiet for us as very few kids facilities.

Walkable/cyclable to Lynton if you are physically fit.

Great access to lots of interesting places nearby.

 We arrived on site following a stormy windy night, some tents and awnings had suffered during the storm. We were greeting by a friendly manager who was most helpful to all concerned and suggested the lead windy pitches.

We choose a flat level hard standing pitch. The site is close to Lynton & Lynmouth with it's many tourist attractions, the terrain is steep and the roads narrow so be prepared for this.

We enjoyed our stay including a drive around Exmoor and Porlock hill which is very pretty.

Reviewer: Rob and his mob1 4 reviews from this member

 This campsite was the 31st we had visited in the last 3 months as my wife was walking The South West Coast Path all in one go, and this site was certainly the most unwelcoming. I arrived at 12.25pm and was brusquely told that the office wouldn't be open until 1pm and to 'park over there and wait'. I should have driven away then.

I finally booked in but was made unwelcome. As a previous reviewer pointed out, the small toilet block was closed for 1 1/2 hours for cleaning and when I asked if there was anywhere I could use, I was grudgingly told to use the ladies, 'but use the 1st cubicle on the left and keep to the centre of the toilet because the wet floor was a Health and Safety concern.'

The only good point was that the facilities were very clean which was unsurprising considering the length of time it took to clean them. They do need updating.

 This is a lovely quiet site over looking the North Devon Coast and the Bristol Channel. The site is well looked after and although the toilet block is dated it was always spotlessly clean. We had severe winds while we there so worth trying to pitch in the lea of the hedge if possible.

This is an excellent place for exploring Exmoor and North Devon, there are many beautiful walks either from site or from Lynton and Lynmouth. We visited Clovelly, Lynton, Lynmouth, Porlock Weir and Dartington Glass while there.

Follow campsite directions as there are extremely steep hills in the area.

 We visited the Lynton site on the first May bank holiday this year and thanks to the traffic we were very late arriving. Despite this, we were made very welcome and I was even able to buy a new gas bottle at 10pm which saved breakfast the following morning!

The site was fairly quiet but is nicely laid out with a good mix of pitches and a separate tent field and a large dog-free playing field. Nice views down to the coast can be had next to the facilities block.

The facilities could do with a little updating but are very clean and the showers don't have the annoying push buttons which is a bonus. The shop is well stocked and the site managers and assistants were very helpful and friendly. A visit to Watersmeet is a must! Lovely walk in to town but quite steep so be prepared for the climb back!

We will definitely return.
