Staff absolutely fabulous, facilities very clean, we stayed in the Bee-hive which was compact but well presented with a very comfy bed. Very little light pollution so we were able to star watch, and the icing on the cake was breakfast! Warm croissants and bread with continental meats and cheese, absolutely fabulous. We will be back 😁

Small, basic campsite, stayed 3 nights with touring caravan. Facilities very clean, family very helpful and friendly. Very well located for superb walks Easy to access location. A39 was quite noisy sometimes but soon stopped noticing it. Location was perfect for exploring remoter parts of the coast path. Will definitely return!

A great place for glamping – it has everything you could need! The facilities are very clean. We stayed in the hut which was very comfortable and cozy. The breakfast hamper exceeded our expectations. The host was super helpful and friendly. They accept dogs too which was perfect! As for the location, there’s loads to do in the area such as visiting Bude, Sandymouth beach and Hartland Quay. If you have a suitable car you should go to Welcombe Mouth beach (it’s down a very steep dirt track) – we went around sunset and it was breathtaking. We hope we can come back!

Amazing memories made. Rosie the gypsy wagon was beautiful, comfortanle and well fitted, with a very authentic feel. But with mod cons too… Kettle, fridge, tv, usb plugs. Every little thing was thought of… Traditional looking crockery, glass bottle of milk all add to the experience. Tea bags, biscuits all included. And the breakfast was awesome… Arrived in baskets, including thermal one with warm croissants and fresh baguette. The summerhouse was perfect to enjoy our breakfast too. Rattie and Bob are really thoughtful and delightful hosts. Will definitely be returning. The shed on sheels (shepherds hut) and new Yurt looks great too. The shower and toilet bock were spotlesz… And well organised with time slots for covid protection. PERFECT!
