A PIECE OF HEAVEN IN DEVON! A beautifully kept campsite, very clean facilities and hot showers, along with a Utility room. The pitches are HUGE and the field enclosed by hedging. Very peaceful and an ideal base for exploring – we had a tranquil stroll along the surrounding country lanes and visited the North Devon Wake Park (a 5 min drive away). Vicki, the owner is lovely, so friendly and helpful with info. We will absolutely be back!

I loved staying at this campsite. It's peaceful and surrounded by nature but not too far away from the local shops. It's in a perfect location to explore the area. The campsite is kept tidy and the facilities are perfect for what you need (hot showers!). It is cleaned regularly and well stocked with a fridge and freezer for communal use too.

Very quiet and peaceful with loads of room at each pitch. The large open area in the middle really made it feel spacious. We had some vehicle issues while we were there and Vicki could not have been more helpful and understanding. The access is down 3 miles of narrow lanes but if you follow the recommended route, not satnav, you will be ok. We will definitely be back 🙂

Absolutely a little hidden quiet place. Pitches are big, facilities are always clean, brilliant place to take your furry friends loads of places to walk them, there’s even a field behind the main camp site for them to walk. The only downside if there was one, would be if you want the more popular places Torquay Newquay etc it’s a bit of a travel. However there’s plenty of beautiful beach near by.

We've had a lovely stay here. Peaceful with glorious views of the rolling Devon hills. The facilities are simple, but thoughtful and immaculate. Only 15 pitches, so never feels too busy!There's a selection serve milk kiosk nearby that does amazing milkshakes, the fish & chips nearby is really nice and the little shop next door is incredibly well stocked.Vicki is relaxed, welcoming and a lovely owner. We'll definitely back!!! Thank you for a lovely first two weeks of our trip!!!
