A very pleasant stay here

Shamwari
Having moved from another area in Devon to this CL, Carole was great in accommodating us with a last minute pitch on this very pleasant CL. We stayed here for 3 nights in total - on arrival our name was on our pitch so that we knew where to put the van, the pitches are fairly level and well spaced out - you are not allowed to put down ground sheets or breathable carpets here. There are no facilities here (not a problem for us!) and it is Adults Only. The views across the panorama in the evening were absolutely lovely. Lovely dog walk in the paddock next to the pitch field. There is road noise during the day, but this dies down at night and we did not find it a problem. We did find access a little awkward on this busy road, but Carole very kindly donned a high vis jacket and aided us on the way out. It is a shame that its not practical to walk anywhere from the site, but also very obvious that the owners take a lot of time and trouble with the upkeep of this CL. Many thanks to Carole for accommodating us at such short notice!

Perfect!

Shamwari
We had a lovely stay here! Carole was very welcoming. The site was a great size. Access was fine in our 8m van. Facilities were all good. Views great. A lovely relaxing, safe and peaceful stay. The area was great, with a fantastic park and ride just up the road. Thank you. We hope to stay again one day.

Fantastic Site

Shamwari
We spent 3 nights here and will return as such a beautiful site, with lovely hosts. Grass with lots of space between units, fabulous view and easy access from main routes. You can park your van or motorhome in any orientation on your pitch - came as bit of a surprise as newbies that not all sites allow this. The dog walk is large and clean, Ruby enjoyed herself as well. Lovely friendly owners who couldn’t do enough for us - folder with local info given us on arrival, even stopped the traffic so so that a caravanning newbies like us could pull out easily when we left! Couldn’t ask for more. Fay & Ian

We have just got home from our third visit to Shamwari, having had another wonderful stay at this superb CL. We can't rate it highly enough. Thanks again to Carole and Martin. We'll be back!
