Love this place - shouldn't write a review as like it all to myself. The area is stunning with a river next to the site, pub at one end and shop/toilets at the other (there lies the problem if you had too much drink, and the sound of running water gets to you in the night!!)
The river is good for fishing or just looking at with mini water falls and the site is in a valley protected by trees with lovely walks from the end of the site to Watersmeet, Doone valley etc. & a short walk to either Lynton or Lynmouth.
The site provides a hearty fry up to start the day from about £6 for set menu but you can have cereals or chose your own fry up (pick & mix) all cooked fresh with even a children's menu.
Shop is sparsely stocked but enough bare essentials - I'm sure the new owners will be filling the shelves with items as the true demand grows.
Good laundry facilities, shower etc. but we treated ourselves to a static caravan this time rather than the usual tent.
Staff are really friendly, fun and attentive - always there to help in any way with good knowledge of the local area (bus timetables etc.)
Will always return here as this place gets in your blood!
