 What a beautiful spot and a well run site! First time at this site which has obviously had money spent on it recently.

Jo, one of the owners was very accommodating with us having to change dates and the whole team were very friendly and obliging throughout our stay.

The site itself sits right next to a section of the Tarka trail with a gate leading straight on to it for walking or cycling. Fire pits were on hire for the evening and a resident chicken popped to see us from time to time.

We had a super pitch which was fine although I would have preferred our own water supply post rather than on with a number of taps on for others to use.

The shower facilities were excellent and well maintained.

We would definitely go back again! Nick & Jane

 We had an enjoyable week here, back in 2018. I can't remember many specifics of the campsite, however that means that they must all have been absolutely fine!

Woolacombe is a short drive away, potentially walkable as well (although we didn't do it). Great beach, we also visited Exmoor Zoo, which was a great day out.

Would recommend this site to anyone who is looking for something quiet and ideally situated for visiting Devon attractions.

 Wanted to find a nice quiet campsite that allowed fires so ended up here and we were really pleased.

Good facilities that were regularly cleaned, only had to wait once for a shower despite the campsite being busy.

On thursdays and saturdays they do a pizza night which whilst I felt was slightly expensive, was really tasty and we all loved it.

You can hire small fire pits and buy eco logs to burn.

The staff were super friendly and made a big fuss of the children, even letting them take pizza boxes away so they could colour them in (which kept my children quiet for ages!).

Only a 5 minute drive to Woolacombe and a 15 minute drive to Putsburgh beach. Would definitely visit again.

 Stayed here with our brand new folding camper in the heatwave and what a fantastic campsite to spend it on.

The majority of pitches had hardstanding with grass next door so we had our camper on the hardstanding area with the awning on the grass - others parked their car on the hardstanding and their tent on the grass.

Campsite staff were very friendly and very visible throughout our stay, mowing the grass, cleaning washrooms, emptying bins etc. As well as reminding campers of the 5mph speed limit.

Washrooms were unisex but never any queues for showers etc. And they were regularly cleaned and were spotless. Sensible Covid restrictions were in place to keep people safe.

There was a pizza night on Thursday and Saturday evening and there was an excellent sheep dog and birds of prey demonstration every Wednesday evening at the neighbouring farm.

Campsite was right on the edge of the Tarka Trail and very close to lovely beaches. Good views over the sea and spectacular sunsets in the evenings.

All in all, a lovely campsite and we will be back!

 This is a good site with excellent facilities and a good location for exploring north Devon. Itís actually just outside Woolacombe at the top of the hill and also backs onto the tarka trail which gives a good cycle route for Braunton and ilfracombe.

The site looks like itís upgraded over COVID with new roads and toilets. Pizzas available on Saturdays.

Just one tiny criticism of the toilet block we used is that there was no private washing cubicles but the showers and toilets were excellent

 Recently camped here for the 2nd time excellent facilities very clean and with covid precautions in place. A lovely quiet and relaxed site, staff and owners are lovely and very helpful.

Hired the fire basket for 2 nights slightly expensive ( £5 for the basket £2for the first log £ 5 every night after up to max of £20) but it was lovely to sit outside and relax at night in front of the fire.

They have just opened up a new set of toilets and showers by the bottom gate by the trail which saves you walking up to the main block at night.

We will definitely be back for another visit highly recommended.

Reviewer: BOINGFC 1 review from this member

 The site is well placed for the local areas of woolacombe, Ilfracombe, croyde, Barnstaple and Combe martin.

When we arrived there had been a lot of rain so the ground was pretty boggy, but in fairness the staff were great with tractor pulls and they also converted my grass pitch to a hard standing whilst I was out. I was also told that more gravel roads will serve pitches next year.

I cannot complain with this site at all, good wood oven pizza twice a week is a plus. Really good for the Tarka trail too

 Travelling solo in my 50s, I really liked this site and felt safe.

I stopped to have a couple of days on the beach and booked on spec, and was pleasantly surprised.

It is small, clean and well cared for.

The cute pizza set up and the wet suit wash inspired.

Really good for a low key, simple time. Perfect for families.

Owners very friendly and helped me hook up.

Tried to get booked here again in 2020 but I was too late, but will definitely book again.
