Ducklings

 

Regular visitors to our campsites small lake are our family of wild Mallards. The males are unmistakable with their distinctive dark green heads, yellow bill and a kind of purple-brown on their breast. The females are mainly brown with an orange to black bill. We've been told that Mallards in the UK can be resident or one of the many migrant birds that breed in Iceland and northern Europe spend their winter here in North Devon.

If you do come across them nesting around the lake, we do ask that you leave them undisturbed.

 


Best camping, Great all round

What a lovely stay we had, being woken with birdsong. Had a weekend stay for a friends 40th birthday camp-out. Lovely people who run the place, even came and wished my friend happy birthday with a scone!

Our spot was overlooking the lake, so good for fishing. The site is great all round and location... is close to various beautiful beaches, gorgeous rugged walks, plenty of roads for cycling and of course sandy beaches, various sized, excellent for surfing or swimming.

Very clean amenities and the family shower rooms were fantastic compared to other campsites I've stayed on. The plots are well kept, the site is clean and tidy. The staff were extremely friendly. The site has a wonderful atmosphere, unlike others which seem pretty soulless, this one is just beautiful, with a lake in the middle and secluded pitches, it just made for a wonderful stay.

There has been a lot of effort gone into the upkeep of this lovely site, long may it continue to be successful.

Definitely be be back for another visit, and I have my eye on which pitches to book next time!! ;)

Fantastic fishing lake for all levels of anglers. My favourite campsite with toilets so luxurious you wouldn't believe. The lake is well stocked and hauled in 50 fish with my brother in 20 minutes.
