First up, Steve and Adelle are the loveliest -and so welcoming and just always so delightful and helpful.We started staying at Orchard around 2016 I think. – We'd been coming to Croyde/North Dev for some time and stumbled across this whilst out in the village one year.We used to come for short stays at first, end of Summer/early Autumn – we've since now made it our main camping ground in Croyde and we visit usually 2 times a year. Minimum 5 nights but mostly a week each time.The location is perfect, but if the weather's not up to scratch you could almost roll down the hill straight into the Thatch 😆, but also, it's very well sheltered based on its location and surroundings. There are some leveled out pitches for tents and they have chocks for vans on the few slants. The pitch sizes are very generous – facilities are always clean and comfortable, and the view from the pitches of the village/valley is my absolute favourite. Short walk to the beach, and extremely short walk to the pubs/village. 😏They seem to know us well now, as we just can't keep away. ☺️ – AND, after a bit of a tent mishap on our most recent stay, they came to our rescue so we could stay and enjoy the rest of our week… They have lots of little well thought about bits too including freezers for your ice blocks, drying lines for your towels etc. Sockets in the shower hut for hair utensils (for the more glampy campers – 😏) and so on. Basics, but in my experience – the high end of basics. We absolutely love our stays here and as long as they carry on, we'll keep visiting… I honestly think if we move to North Devon (and we plan to) we'll still do a few camping weekends at this site for beachy/villagey weekends.I should have reviewed them sooner as we are always absolutely thrilled each time we have stayed here over the years.Love itJohn and Amanda

What a gem of a campsite! We have just returned home from a fab few days. The hosts could not make you feel more welcome, I have never known a campsite quite like it. Facilities are great, clean and plenty of hot water. Lockers for charging phones, freezer for ice blocks and a washing line area that is undercover. Lovely and small so not much noise after dark. Perfect location for everything Croyde has to offer. We will definitely be back.

Really great campsite with warm showers, level pitches, chargers, lockers, a wetsuit drying area with hooks and a five minute walk to the beach. The owners are very friendly and helpful. There are no ground fires due to its location, and it may not be able to support huge tents, but it was perfect for us.

Another amazing stay at the Orchard. A small site, remarkably tranquil considering its location at the heart of the village, with cafes, shops, pubs and restaurants a short stroll away (perfect for flat whites and croissants in the morning). All the amenities one needs for camping: sparkling clean showers, an outdoor shower, charging, fridge and freezer. Super dog friendly too (the only site in Croyde that is, I think). Thank you again, Steve, Adele, Bob and Susan. See you next year!

In an unsuspecting place (the middle of town) you find this former orchard that is now a camping. Is simple but very decent. Nice facilities and a small (postal) shop just around the corner that sells a few (local) items for your convenience. We had a nice chat with one of the owners that is very friendly and willing to help wherever she can. An 8 minute walk will bring you to the beach of this surfers paradise. Lots of little shops and bars within 50 yards!!!
