The best in the Country

Like others have said it’s not easy to review this site being selfish as initially we think if we do we might not get in again BUT it really needs to gain the attention ,the area is amazing , the pub is amazing ( stumbling distance away ) the owners are so nice and friendly , first time in all our years touring the wife wanted to buy them a gift and a card , the walks you won’t find many places in the UK are breathtaking , all in all one of the best few days camping we’ve had and if the hedge had been 2 feet lower and we could see the sea I think I’d move on it permanently , honestly 10/10 and I don’t review many like that, oh and as an edit there’s no WiFi anywhere in the village ( none apart from in the pub ) but this site gets 4G where we were ( pitch 4 )

Peaceful CL

Loved this site. So peaceful and quiet, with access to the coast path, and a good pub a few minutes walk away. Owners very friendly.

Quiet and simple

Great location but no views. Access to walks and coast. Great pub and shop. Everything we needed but no views unless you stand in the doorway. Phone and tv signal fair. Getting around this area became an issue with endless narrow roads and high hedges, quite stressful at times but that’s Devon for you. It’s not an area we would return to - avoid using Satnav and trust in your maps and instructions from the owner. Sandy Lane needs to be removed from satnav vocabulary. We never met the owners.

Lovely CL

Really enjoyed 5 nights here, so peaceful. Very friendly helpful owners. Great for coastal walks and visiting the surrounding area. Pigsnose a super little pub. The roads are a quite hair raising especially when towing a van, not many passing places, hence a very early departure to miss traffic.

Perfect CL in Outstanding location

We've recently returned from a week's stay at this CL. I cannot recommend it enough, although this may be to our detriment as it could make it so popular finding a space could become difficult. However, I feel that Jane and Richard, who are the most considerate of Cl owners, deserve a first class review. Their main concern being the comfort of their campers. I noted the review concerning the toilet disposal and would say that this has now been addressed. As far as any noise was concerned there certainly wasn't any rowdy parties in the farmer's field next door and so can only conclude as Jane advised that this was a one off instance and to be fair would have been out of her control. East Prawle is an area of outstanding beauty and we intend visiting early next year when hopefully Jane and Richard will have a space for us.
