Lovely, rural scenic site

Ilton Castle Farm
Very nice site, with distant views of the estuary. Wendy is very welcoming and helpful especially as when we arrived the rain was torrential and she came out to meet us and direct us on to a hardstanding area due to the potentially waterlogged areas. The site is huge with lovely cut grass. Cannot comment on the facilities as these were all shut due to COVID. As others have mentioned the roads to the site are sooooo narrow with passing places few and far between!!! But this is Devon and I guess wherever you go in this neck of the woods any route is going to be challenging. We are in a motorhome, 6.5 metres in length but we saw many bigger units and cars and caravans that had obviously managed to get to not only this site but other neighbouring ones. Make sure you stock up on any groceries before arriving, main shopping is in Salcombe. We have electric bikes to get about on once on site, the route to and from Salcombe is very steep but we did manage it but I'm sure those of you are who are much fitter and younger than we are would do it with ease. Salcombe is very picturesque, but so so busy even though it wasn't school holidays! We tried to book a table for a meal at a couple of restaurants, lunch or dinner and was told by both establishments that were fully booked for 2 weeks!!! Planning ahead is a must. I think it might be worth getting the ferry over to the other side where there are some nice beach areas and seem to be a little quieter than on the Salcombe side. If you are in a motorhome, walking and cycling is challenging from this site and you would have to do one or the other if you wanted to access any amenities. But if you're looking for a quiet get away retreat in lovely surroundings then this might just be the site for you.

Peaceful

Ilton Castle Farm
Only spent one night but very nice, peaceful site, quite narrow lane but access to site is good. Owner welcomed us, very friendly and helpful. Walked to Salcombe, about 40 min, steep hill on way back but a very friendly driver dropped us back. Site had wc and shower 20p. Would recommend this site for peaceful surroundings, pitches are huge and you have plenty of space.

Happy together

Rural Retreat

Ilton Castle Farm
Have just spent 5 nights at Wendy's lovely farm in the early July heatwave. Fantastic. We will definitely be back. Very friendly. Spacious, well manicured pitches well separated. Very family friendly and welcoming. Invigorating 2 mile walk into Salcombe down quiet country lanes. Facilities fully functional and completely in keeping with rural location. All CL pitches occupied whilst we we there but because of generous pitch size, no hint of overcrowding. Yes, access is a tad narrow but several large caravans had made it down the hill and we got in and out in our 4 1/4 ton Kontiki with the wing mirrors just clipping the hedgerows. No problems turning at all. Can't wait to return.

Peace and quiet with nice views

Ilton Castle Farm
Just had a wonderful relaxing week on Wendy's lovely CL. First time there for us, but we will be back. There is a choice of level hard standing or grass pitches, all with varying degrees of a view across the Kingsbridge estuary. Electric hook up, water, waste and recycling are all handy. No traffic noise and plenty of wildlife ensures a peaceful stay. Bear in mind, though, that this is a working beef farm - but saying that, this is by far the quietest farm we've ever stayed on. Mind you, we had the place to ourselves all week! Facilities are adequate - 3 toilets and a shower. No WiFi available but we did get a decent mobile phone signal. Wendy is very friendly and helpful. Access is down some narrow lanes - so take care. All in all, a thoroughly nice site in a delightful area.
