perfect location

Rowden Barton
If, like us you are not on the hardstanding part, you will need level ramps, and if it rains, be careful when manovering as some ground is softer in parts. A little road noise but nothing in towards. Mrs Dallyn greeted us and she is a lovely person. I would return again.

4th visit! Love this site

Rowden Barton
The grass pitches were understandably out of action due to the wet winter but no problem as we were able to get our large single axle van onto the hard standing area even though 2 twin axles and a large motorhome already on site. Obviously we were quite close together but still had the 6 metres between units required by fire regs. Its great having a CL in N. Devon with hard standings and such easy access plus the added benefit of a clean WC. The good access from a main road does mean that there is some traffic noise but no problem to us. Mrs Dallyn as friendly as ever. Incidentally when I came to empty the cassette Mrs Dallyn was by the emptying point and despite being of slight build and no spring chicken casually bent down and lifted up the manhole for me so don't quite understand the comment in another review about heavy manhole covers!

Tight squeeze

Rowden Barton
We only have a small motorhome but it was tight getting in and out with 3 other units in place and not much room between them on the hardstanding area.  One unit was staying some time so had 2 vehicles, another had visitors with vehicles which made access to the water difficult to fill up the tank so we had to resort to filling up with containers.  Grey water was discharged onto the grass which is just as well as not sure where the drain was and again would have been impossible to drive to.  Toilet emptying was also a bit of a struggle as it involved getting a heavy drain cover up and the hose to rinse off was difficult to find although the owner indicated water from the trough could be used.  The road noise was not a problem and the location was easy to find and convenient for shops/sights etc.  We probably would come again unless my husband finds it too difficult to remove the drain cover for toilet emptying.  Shame as the owner is most friendly and helpful.

Lovely CL, Lovely Owner

Rowden Barton
We chose this CL because we have relatives in the area and so is a good base. Access is easy (not always the case with Devon CLs!) as just a few hundred yards from A39. Yes there is some road noise but we knew that before we booked and not a problem to us. We visited in March so used the hardstanding area. WC is convenient and clean. Mrs Dallyn is very friendly and helpful. Excellent value for money at £10. We will almost certainly return.
