We had a wonderful experience camping here. The views from out pitch were amazing and the owners were really helpful and genuinely lovely people. They are also dog owners, so the campsite was dog friendly, which was perfect for us.The location was also great too, ideal for exploring the South West Coastal Path and all the towns and villages surrounding it.

Very beautiful small site, simple but with everything one needs. Beautiful views over the downs, nice visiting cat! Very quiet. Absolutely recommended! Maybe not with a big campervan, very steep and narrow driveway, but ideal for small vans and bullies.
