I can safely say that this has to be the nicest caravan park I've stayed on in my 50 years on God's green earth. Lovely location (caravan 60 has a sea view) Caravan is very well appointed (even has a dishwasher, a real treat) Club house and it's team are warm and friendly The site is always pleasantly quiet Absolutely no chavs. 10 minutes walk into the village. Has it's own beach (very steep walk, but I found it clears the cobwebs in the morning) My only criticism is and the site are no way to blame, late July early August 2023, the weather was sh1t, our holiday would have been so much better with some sun. I would 100% come back here again (it's very rare that I say that.

Great view. The room was fairly clean. You need to bring your own towels and toiletries. It’s very comfortable staying here. The swimming pool was very clean and tidy. Very friendly and helpful staffs. The children play area was well maintained. It was very quiet at night even though there were plenty kids and babies around. Good sound proofing! We would love to come back again.

Excellent holiday park, we returned this morning after a week. Picturesque with a lovely swimming cove, easily accessible from the holiday park. Didn't use the swimming pool but it's well maintained and very clean. Bar good with sea views, and food is available if you don't want to cook or go further afield. Staff are lovely. Caravans are clean, comfortable and well equipped. Quiet park which suited us fine. There is a shop on site if you need to buy basics. Will book again.

What a little gem of a place! We stayed in the bronze pet caravan. It was clean and had everything we needed for our stay. It was much better than I expected it to be! We found the small club house to be reasonably priced and the staff were friendly. Mermaid Cove (the sites own beach) was beautiful. It's a little steep… going down is fine, though coming back up the steps meant I had to have a rest a couple of times (old age creeping in, lol). During our stay we did not use the pool (the weather was not too good), nor did we purchase food from Chef's Corner, so I can't comment on these facilities. The park is a little hilly. However, it has fantastic views and the town is just a short walk away. We could have easily stayed another week. We will definitely be returning here. It is a great base for exploring North Devons beaches!
