WOW

Wow - it’s fabulous here. The view is amazing and it’s so quiet. Monique is lovely and really helpful. Not really much more to say - we absolutely loved staying here and it’s the best site we have stayed at.

Wow

I concur with all the Previous positive Reviews. This is heaven on Earth! If you find the access difficult then you’ve either gone the wrong way or you can’t drive.

A Tranquil Haven

If you prefer CL's to formal Club Sites you cannot be disappointed here. If you choose a country site in rural Devon and you are not expecting narrow lanes, then more of your own thought and preparation may be required. As a previous reviewer has commented, site access is perfectly clear and well sign-posted and easily accessed with careful driving ( on our recent stay a simply enormous motor-home had managed it, so car and caravan is no problem ). Although slightly sloping, there are plenty of useful chocks in the hedge bottom available for simple levelling and the stunning views from the site make any slight inconvenience of this more than worthwhile. The site itself is large and allows plenty of space for each guest, with power and water points at each pitch and a modern and very user-friendly cassette emptying point. We enjoyed some amazing sunsets above the facing valley, which has some superb woodland walks too, and with little or no light-spill, clear nights are a starlit revelation, allowing views of passing space stations and satellites from time to time as well as all the usual constellations. With easy access to the Devon and Dorset coastal towns as well as superb countryside all around, this makes for one of our favourite CL's and thoroughly to be recommended. Owner Monique is a delight too, and will trundle up regularly in her car from her farm down the lane to see that all is well and that you are enjoying your stay. A second delightful stay for us will certainly not be the last.

Absolutely fantastic site!!

Absolutely fantastic site! Some of the other negative reviews are very unfair. Easy access to /from the site with our single axel van. Toilet emptying, rubbish and recycling facilities. Electric hook up and water to each pitch (I need to get my van a hose pipe!) The field is on a slight slope but we parked diagonally and used a chock and we were fine! (Did notice blocks in the hedge for anyone who needed them) Stayed for a week 2 adults, 1 child and 3 dogs. 3 of which nights we had weather warnings and it was very wet and windy! Take extra tent pegs and storm straps if there’s any chance of bad weather! Will definitely use this site again! Ps take binoculars for the view! Thanks.

Great - if you're a mountain goat!

This site is, indeed, quiet and peaceful. However, what they fail to tell you is that the approach lane is a good half mile of single track road with high-sided hedgerows, and no suitable passing places to accommodate a car and caravan. Whilst the entrance is adequate (the usual gate size), it is very awkward to negotiate because of the width of the lane, so entering and leaving with a caravan requires some skill! And then there's the slope - the owners' explanation in the club sites book states it is 'part-sloping', which is untrue - it is all on a very steep bank. We spent at least 2 hours trying to site the caravan and get it level, and although we had chocks and blocks, they weren't enough. Not what you want when you've been driving some way and all you want is to get set up and put the kettle on! Unfortunately, our experience was worsened by the fact that when we arrived, we were caravan number SEVEN, on a site for five vans, meaning there was no hook-up available. On enquiry with other caravan owners, it appeared one caravan was planning to leave, but not for another several hours (ie tea-time - what?), so we eventually got fed up and went out for a drive. Fortunately on our return, that caravan had left, so a hook-up was available. However, six caravans were on the site the whole time we were there, and having booked and paid a deposit months earlier, we were a bit miffed by our experience. The site owner is at the farm way back at the entrance to the lane, meaning a long walk or a ride in the car, and when we called, an elderly gentlemen was the only person available, who didn't know anything about the site. I would not recommend this site, unless you're an intrepid traveller! I would certainly not return.
