Entertaining

We visited in August and selected this CL because it offered serviced pitches. It has been very well thought out and is immaculately maintained. The entertainment is provided by resident goats/ducks/donkey etc.Andrew has a 20 pitch site at the other side of the farm house opened a couple of years ago (Tranquil Sites). This provides showers etc and looks equally well maintained but does not detract from the peacefulness of the CL. We will certainly return. We normally use CL’s and this is certainly at the top of our rankings.

One of the best sites visited

Our stay was one of the very best we have experienced. Welcomed on arrival, plenty of advice on the surrounding area. Facilities were excellent with water, electricity, and grey water disposal on each hardstanding pitch. The site was very well kept and variety of animals and birds kept us amused. The long views from the site most enjoyable. The lane to the site was easy to manage despite some narrow sections, but taking care was all that was needed. If and when we visit North Devon again we shall certainly seek out availability on this very well run CL. Thank you the Mathers!

Excellent!

7 nights on this peaceful site in August. Pitches pretty level and hard standing with water, waste and electric point on each pitch - no carrying! Fabulous views from all the site. Very nice owners who welcomed us on and were very friendly when seen around the site. No hint of "farm" smell from any of the animals, in fact I had to go search for the pigs even to find them. Very very nice stay. My only gripe was the wind and rain all the week, and the one and a half mile narrow lane from the A 399 to the site with no passing places. But DONT let these put you off. Great place - shame its not a bit nearer to Sheffield or we would never be away from the place. I forgot to sign the visitors book - sorry Mrs Mather if you read this, I did mean to leave a good message in it, Thank you.

Peaceful and well kept site

This is a well kept, spacious site with lovely surroundings. The owners are very friendly and we loved all the animals including the donkey, alpacas, goats, ducks etc which added to the ambience of the place. The toilet and wash basin are very clean and there is a small collection of books to borrow. Arlington Court (National Trust) is a 30 min walk away, well worth visiting and a reservoir is 10 min walk away which can be walked around, takes approx an hour. Apart from this the site is pretty remote but ideal if you want to get away from it all, very peaceful and pretty, we would recommend it.

Wow!

We arrived on a dark foggy night, chose a pitch and whilst hooking up we were warmly welcomed by Andrew. We hooked up and settled in for the night. In the morning we were pleasantly surprised to see our neighbours - goats, alpacas, ducks and pigs - and an amazing view. Excellent site with good hardstanding pitches each with their own grey waste, water and electricity, you would pay quite a lot for a serviced pitch at a club site!! Clean toilet, chemical toilet disposal and rubbish. Lovely walk round the reservoir and lots to do in the area, you though would need to use your van/car. I am sure we will return and would highly recommend.

I wish more sites were like this

This site has got to feature in our top 10 favorite sites. It is peaceful, welcoming, restful and most enjoyable. We got a personal welcome on arriving, we were able to choose which pitch we wanted and then left to enjoy our holiday in the knowledge that if there was anything we wanted to give Andrew or Claire a shout. We will certainly be visiting again if they will have us. Thank you very much for a lovely holiday.

Fantastic site with Superb facilities

Only stayed one night but the first of many, Friendly people and happy to help you, The showers and toilet are very clean, It's a bit like using your own on suit, The pitches are very big with your own water tap and grey waste disposal, Can't wait to go back as we only live 10 miles away will be ideal for winter weekends.

Peace in glorious surroundings.

I can’t add a lot to the other reviews - good serviced HS pitches, immaculate toilet and hand wash basin, friendly owners who gave us a very useful leaflet of information, the list goes on. Above all else, three things stood out for me - the well kept and well thought out site, the peace of the area and the animals. The goats and alpacas (there are now two) were in the field immediately behind the pitches, the ducks and rare breed pigs were opposite, while Gerald the donkey and the miniature Shetland ponies were just outside the CL gate. The O2 mobile signal was good on site being at least 3G at all times. There is also a 20 pitch site run by Andrew and Claire (which looked immaculate) but it is completely separate from the CL and, once on site, you don’t even know it’s there. I’m not usually a fan of sites that will not take dogs, even though we no longer have one. However, having seen the proximity of the animals and the open water of the duck pond, I fully understand the decision to make this a child free and dog free site. Arlington Court NT is nearby and well worth a visit to see the carriage collection alone. Barnstaple, Lynton/Lynmouth and the whole of that stretch of the North Devon Coast are within easy reach. We hope to return.

What a great CL

We arrived with a warm welcome from Andrew and pitched up on very good hard standing with both fresh and grey water points on all pitches, each pitch has a lot of room so you are not on top of your neighbour. Everything was clean and tidy and well looked after and the toilet was cleaned each day. If you are an animal lover this is the site for you, we were entertained by the Goats,Alpaca,Pigs,Horses ( on the small side) Donkey and the Ducks being put to bed each evening. A big thank you to our hosts Andrew and Claire. Enjoyed every minute.
