Be Aware

West Ashford Barton
PLEASE BE AWARE The CL is £18 per night as of 18.07.2022 with EHU. It is a very sloping site and while the views are ok they are not the best. However, the owner does have another field she calls ‘Foxhalls’ which is NOT part of the C.L. This field does not have EHU for which she is charging £15. While it is not as sloping levelling blocks may well still be needed. The views from this field are superb over the fields and the River Taw estuary The owner is very pleasant but we felt she was using her C.L. Registration to gain custom for her private Foxhalls site We had a ‘new to us’ motorhome and wanted to have an EHU in order to try to out all the workings of the motorhome. We were sent directions to what we understood to be the C.L., which was in fact the private site and which was never mentioned on booking. On arrival we spoke with the owner who assured us that we had not requested an EHU and that the C.L. was in fact full at the time of booking! Both sites are on the top of the hill, reached by some typical Devon country lanes. For the reasons above we would not be booking with this owner again

Campervan Visit May 2022

West Ashford Barton
Excellent site with a stunning view and friendly welcome. Booking site was easy with very good communication from Arlene who keeps a good eye on the site. Plenty of space and very peaceful. Walk down road to access coastal path, Tarka trail and bus stop although a bit steep on the way back. Hook ups and water conveniently situated but levellers needed. Information room in adjacent barn with eggs & preserves for sale. We would be happy to return.

The views were spectacular.

West Ashford Barton
There were 2 large fields where you could decide which view you wanted, slightly sloping so levelling blocks required, a few hook-up points and 2 water taps. Mrs May was very pleasant and helpful. There are several country walks. We definitely want to visit this beautiful, peaceful site again. The approach road is very narrow, so if you have a large outfit, be sure to follow the directions in the book rather than the satnav.

Lovely site

West Ashford Barton
We visited this site in August 2020 for 10 nights as our first post lockdown trip. Access is a little tricky as the road is a bit narrow at Heaton hill and Heaton Punchardon. But don't let that put you off, as on arrival at the spacious site you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the Taw estuary. The site owner was very friendly on arrival and in fact came to see us later to say goodbye. Our stay was quite eventful, as due to being on an exposed hill the view comes at a price when the wind blows. Our air awning, decided it wanted to be on the other side of our caravan during the night!! We were a bit unlucky that Storm Francis decided to visit as the same time as us. Facilities are basic, the electric hookup did not trip out, there is good access to water and toilet disposal. Supermarket within 1mile at Wrafton. Crow point via toll road(£2) is lovely with sand dunes and beaches. We wish to return, hopefully in calmer weather conditions.

So much space!

West Ashford Barton
We stayed on this beautiful site for just 5 nights in August and wished it could have been longer. Even Storm Francis shaking us to sleep all night didn't detract from a great stay! The access, as others have said, is interesting - especially if you get it wrong like we did due to the 'Road Closed' sign at the expected access road because of roadworks near the bottom! It really is a spectacular site - the peace and quiet and the beauty of the view is breathtaking. Mrs May saw we'd got set up and came to introduce herself and was really helpful in letting us know where the dog friendly spots were locally - Crow Point is just a 10 min drive away, just round the corner from Saunton Sands and takes in a fabulous walk along the estuary out into the open sea......vast expanse of beach and sand dunes for dogs and children to roam, and even in the height of summer, no crowds...hurrah! Due to Covid, understandably there were no facilities open on the site but again, that didn't detract from our stay. I cannot recommend highly enough this lovely, well kept site and welcoming owner. We will definitely be returning next year.
