Lovely family run camp site, run by 3 generations of a lovely family,we take our touring caravan there nearly every year, we have taken 3 generations of our family there and meet lots of family's who also love this camp site, it's not to big and over commercialised, that's what makes it special! Great for visiting Ilfracombe, Croyde,Coombe Martin, Braunton, Staunton, Putsbourgh. 3 toilet/shower blocks kept clean, small shop on site for essentials 🌟 ⭐️ 🌟 🌟 ⭐️ 💕
What a wonderful campsite… everything was spot on! We felt we had the most perfect pitch on the Seaview field… all the amenities were clean and tidy, lots to do on site – play area, games room, outdoor table tennis and badminton. The beach is magical… the steps have kept us fit this week! The food options available most evenings were also great. All the staff were helpful and friendly. We will definitely return! Thank you so much!! ☀️🌊☀️

Had a lovely 5 night stay at the end of June in our tent. Great views from every pitch in the unallocated sea view field and access to the amazing Broadsands beach (the steps aren’t as bad as you think!). Although we chose where to pitch, we ended up with quite a steep slope so be weary of this upon arrival as the majority of the field is on a slope! Clean and modern facilities in the washing area and the new shower block but the old WCs & showers are extremely outdated and practically outside so expect short queues for the newer showers & toilets and certain times of the day. One thing to note would be that there is a steep incline to the sea view pitches from all of the facilities. I didn’t see anything relating to this before arriving but the slope to the sea view field is extremely slippy after rain or in the morning/evening and therefore went sliding down a few times during my stay. Steps would be so much better here otherwise you have to take the much longer way round using the main road round the site. Otherwise had a lovely main part of a week here, just wish the weather was a bit nicer for us! Will definitely be back one day!
Closed now , for winter.A great site for laid back, relaxed camping.within reach of many local children's attractions . beautiful situation, views unequaled anywhere.

Absolutely gorgeous setting. Friendly helpful staff. Toilet and shower facilities are excellent and food hut is handy (probably a bit too handy!!).Can’t fault the place, beach is fabulous, and while it’s a steep walk up and down, that’s what makes the scenery so gorgeous so what can you expect.We visited Ilfracombe and Lynton while we were there which was a nice way to pass a couple of hours.
