The best CL we have ever used! Run by experienced caravanners, for caravanners and motorhomes.

Poole Farm
This site is simply unique - in 25years of caravanning, we have never found anywhere to match this one. Throughout our stay we were treated as revered and valued guests (rather than just paying campers as we have been elsewhere on some sites). There was a great welcome with complimentary Cornish Cream Teas on our first arrival, cooked breakfasts and Sunday evening roast dinners if you want, and all the help and advice one could need. Louise and Greg have spent a great deal of time and money in enhancing the site to reach its present immaculate standard and a lot of careful thought has been applied in the way it is laid out. Even the spacious dog walk is regularly mowed and set out to provide enjoyment for our 4-legged friends! 'The Hut' provides an information room as well as spotless toilet and shower facilities for all to use (at no extra cost!) with a great selection of home-made jams and chutneys available to purchase in the information area. For the 2021 fee it is simply amazing what is on offer here, and well worth your visit. Try it and see if you agree...!

The very best!

Poole Farm
As stated previously Poole Farm CL is second to none in every respect. Greg and Louise are the perfect hosts and do their utmost to ensure everyone has an enjoyable experience.This immaculate site is just the perfect place to relax and recuperate, yet close enough to visit the many attractions in the Devon/ Cornwall border area. The complimentary cream tea is a really special touch which reflects their eye to business , and the Sunday Roast was superb! We cannot rate this CL highly enough and look forward to our next visit.

The Best CL

Poole Farm
Poole Farm CL is our number one favourite site. The facilities are spotless and the grounds and dog area beautifully maintained. This quiet site is ideal for unwinding and just enjoying the birdsong from your caravan . The location is ideal for visiting the north Devon coast and various national trust properties . The owners Greg and Louise make your stay a trip to remember. Louise offers cooked Sunday roasts and cooked breakfasts during your stay which were really fantastic. During our visit we also received complimentary cakes, cream teas and on hot days ice creams. We can only echo all the other reviews that have been posted , it really is a little gem

The best site ever!

Poole Farm
We stayed here for a week in June, and can honestly say it's the best site we've ever visited. Starting with the warm welcome and cuppa, right down to the care and attention paid by the owners throughout our stay, it was perfect. We ordered a Sunday roast for the day we arrived, and this was delivered to our campervan, and was absolutely marvellous. We also ordered pizzas and a breakfast during our stay and the food is wonderful, home cooked expertly by Louise. The site is kept immaculate with covid restrictions strictly adhered to so everyone is safe. There is a lovely washroom called "The Hut" where you can have a shower and a wash, and use the loo. Again, all kept spotless. The only downside of the location we found (and this is our personal view and not any fault of the owners). We did find it a hair-raising journey along single lane roads to get to the main road. Very often the view was restricted by overgrowth at the roadside and bends in the road. Also, there is a bit of traffic noise at the back, where the road runs close to the site near a narrow bridge, and you get tractors, lorries and cars, but nothing too bad. All in all, we had a lovely holiday here, thank you Greg, Louse and Harvery for your hard work and helpfulness.

One of the best CL sites we have stayed on in 50 years of caravanning!

Poole Farm
We stayed on this site for 11 nights in early June and have to say it is one of the best CL sites we have stayed on. The initial welcome from Greg was exceptional and he even braved the torrential rain to greet us. He even offered to assist us in setting up our caravan/awning. The offer of help continued throughout our duration. We were not able to have the complimentary scones on our first day due to the late arrival but we did sample these the following day - delicious! They also offer Sunday roasts - cooked by Louise and delivered to your caravan by Greg. Very generous portions and very nice indeed. We were also given a homemade cake! Would we go back to this campsite - absolutely!
