Reviewer: Coastwalker 36 reviews from this member

This site is on a single track road from Exmouth to the village of Littleham. It looks like an old farm, with a big barn housing the bar, and campers showers and toilets.

The lady taking my booking was ok, but seemed fed up.

There is a small field with hookups for vans, tents and motorhomes at the rear of the barn, and through a gap there is a larger camping field.

This field was very rough cut and rather lumpy- rough pasture.

The toilets and showers are at the back of the barn. I only saw the gents side. This was grim. Dark and dismal and having that old pub cellar smell, everything is on its last legs. The showers work after a fashion, but 2 of the 3 sinks had no hot water. - One didn't work at all, one hot tap is connected to the cold system, the 3rd gave such a banshee wail I quickly turned it off. The whole lot wasn't filthy though, just poor and uncared for. There are old sinks for washing up outside, which did have hot water.

I have used better sites at a third of the price. I moved on after one night and stayed at a far superior one nearby.

Just our luck to arrive after constant rain had made the fields too wet to drive on, but we were directed to a safe place on the drive where we were quite happy for 2 days. The owners are in the process of upgrading the facilities and have plans for roads and hardstandings. The facilities are a bit basic at the moment but the bar was terrific. Will come again.

Spent a week on this site with the family in August.

The site is nicely kept and well maintained with plenty of room for the kids to play but no play area. Toilet block was always clean with nice hot showers.

The pitches are not the biggest but have enough room for caravan with awning and car in front.

If you are thinking of staying here you will need leveling blocks for 1/2 the pitches as the site is on a hill.

They have a 3pm check in which at the time was a bit of a pain for me but when you get to the site you can understand why. The access is tight which is why they have a late arrive time as you have a major issue if 2 caravans were to meet.

We took bikes for us and the kids and rode into Exmouth which only took about 10mins. Took a bit longer getting back as 1/2 of it is up hill.

There is a cafe on site and a pub that does food at the end of the road. I didn't use either of them but they looked nice and was always busy with I think is a good sign.

I would happily stay here again.

Stayed for one night, hereafter our thoughts.

Good points:

- great location to exmouth beach

- friendly staff

- no frills

- ok £per night except for sharing EHU - see below

- a new bar area was about to open

Not so good :

- electric hookup, it's advertises as a 16amp supply, which it is - however what they don't tell you is you'll probably have to share it - if I didn't have a splitter we wouldn't of got EHU at all! Think it was staff caravans feeding to our supply ( they didn't even route their cables around the edge of the field, so cars were driving over it.

- quite a few old caravans on site/ poss staff accommodation?!?

- pitches very close, pitch next to ours, their awning was right upto to pitch edge line - they also used this as their entrance, good job we didn't need all of our pitch & and we pitched our van over a bit so it didn't get knocked if they tried to get into their awning!

- facilities are rather tired

- yes the lane is narrow, but we'd just come from sw Devon and those lanes are way worse

- well stocked shop, actually means sells milk - the well stocked part is paddle boards and alike

Very disappointed with the campsite. It had a neglected look about it and the facilities were in need of a complete upgrade. John the owner however is brilliant. We had a problem with some dogs who live on the site attacking our dog but John calmed the situation and we had no more problems. We also felt the pitches are far too close together. We had a tent pitched inches from our van which was sharing a pitch with a campervan! There is no way will ever return to this site and really feel unable to recommend it.

Reviewer: MrsCamper 6 reviews from this member

A friendly site but it is extremely grubby. The gents smell and are wholly inadequate, described by a fellow camper as 'foul' they are cramped and the ladies is uncared for and gets very damp. There's a lack of recycling. The pitches are extremely close together and we felt quite sorry for some of our fellow campers whose space was being encroached. The walk to Exmouth doesn't take long but it's on a road so difficult with children. There is a bunkhouse which was being stayed in by a very noisy swearing group which could be heard by fellow campers' small children. The warden did ask them to be quiet but the general level of noise was unacceptable on a quiet rural site. I can't quite believe that the National Trust allow their sign to be on the site. Would not return.
