Unique, magical, laid back, friendly site.

Fosfelle Country House

We received a friendly welcome by Carla and her family and animals who are the new owners of Fosfelle We were initially concerned our 7.4m motorhome would be too long for the pitches but we were fine. We chose pitch 1 nearest the Hobbit House shower and toilet and were a good distance from the outfit next door. The pitch was perfectly level. Each pitch has a picnic bench, EHU and water. The large & extremely clean shower works on a token costing £1 from reception for which you get 6 mins of really good hot water with excellent water pressure. We took advantage of the laundry service too, £10 and it's washed, dried and folded for you. You can reserve a private slot in the hot tub for £5 which we recommend. 10 mins walk to Hartland Village with a lovely dog walk around "The Vale" which is a public footpath through woodland, 3 pubs, a dog friendly coffee shop, a post office and a village shop which sells amazing local bacon.

Fair TV signal and full 4g on EE

The owners really couldn't have been more helpful and we will definitely stay again.

Autumnal stay in Hartland

Fosfelle Country House
We have just returned from a very wet outing to the Torridge region of Devon, where we stayed 4 nights at Fosfelle pitches. The directions in the CAMC book are spot on and we arrived in late afternoon to be welcomed by the hosts. Entrance to the field is via a gate and down short track into a dip. On arrival there were 3 other units parked up so we chose one of the remaining pitches. I initially was slightly perturbed as there wasn’t much of a view apart from the Alpacas and Donkeys, very sweet. But as the wind and rain picked up during our stay, we were very grateful for the positioning of the pitches as we were protected by the buffering of strong winds. We didn’t use the hobbit huts. There is a an easy walk, all be it along the road, into Hartland which has three pubs and a couple of general stores. We found the site well located for visiting local attractions and places Bude, Clovelly, Westward Ho! in the MoHo and Hartland Point, Hartland Quay on our bikes. As stated in previous reviews, the owners have recently taken over and requested feedback to help improve the site and stay for visitors. Our only comment was that although the avenue of Hydrangeas was very pretty, they did encroach into the drive. Apparently the owners have already contracted someone to tame the vegetation. Finally, as most CLs we have visited are in rural locations and often on farms, we fully expect a gate to be negotiated onto the camping field and welcome the additional deterrent it provides.

A great little site

Fosfelle Country House
We were booked here for 6 nights in the CL to attend the wedding of a friends daughter (which was magical!). Owners were lovely and friendly and could not do enough for us. They come down to the field each evening to feed the donkeys and alpacas that freely roam the site and are very happy to chat. The site itself has a lovely approach through an avenue of hydrangeas. Toilet and shower are in quaint wooden pods - they do get a bit grassy and muddy, but then you are in a field! The pitches are sloping, so chocks are required. The present owners have just taken the place over so are aware of a few tweaks that are needed which, when completed, will make this a gem of a site! We will be returning.

Would not recommend

Fosfelle Country House
We phoned to say that we would be late arriving as we had been stuck in traffic and the owner was very nice and said to just pitch up and rest and they would catch up with us in the morning. As we had sent the whole pitch fee for 10 nights prior to our arrival, there was no issue with paying. That was the last time we spoke to the owners as we never saw them the whole of the 10 days. The pitches are hard standing but quite tight for turning in and out, you have to go on the grass to turn and as it had been raining it was extremely wet. Luckily for us we have a motor mover so we managed to stay on the track. The toilet and shower are in unusual cabins and were never cleaned judging by the cobwebs full of dust and dead insects everywhere. You need to take your own toilet roll and towel as they are not provided. The shower needs a token from the house so we used our own. The bar and restaurant were closed. There are 5 Alpacas wandering around but they ran as soon as you went near them. They are probably the reason you have to drive through a gate and close it after you which was a pain. All in all, we would not recommend this C.L. We have stayed in C.L.s all over the country for many years and this one lets the caravan club down.

Disappointed

Fosfelle Country House
Admittedly it was raining but there was no one to welcome us and we were dismayed to find the pitches were very tight to get into, little room to manoeuvre. Nobody ever appeared, other than the five llamas which are quite sweet. You need a token for the shower, but reception was closed. The site is situated in a sloping field, though the pitches are level. There are no views and no walks from the site. We left the next morning and won’t be returning.It may be very nice in summer, if you like feeling enclosed and have a car so you can use it as a base.
