We had rain almost every day and the site was becoming a muddy skidpan but they did come and sprinkle sawdust on the mud if asked and towed us off the pitch so they did their best. The play area is one of the best we've seen and the bathrooms are amazing!- underfloor heating and large sensor operated showers - it was posher than at home!
There are some lovely pitches set amongst trees further down the site - we were in a row on a field which was disappointing but that was because I'd booked a 'super-pitch'.There was one night that was so windy the caravan rocked and shook all night which terrified me but the view from our caravan was amazing - we could see the lights on the Swansea coast. There were 3 washing machines and 4 tumble dryers which was really helpful, and all the facilities were spotless.
It's worth remembering that any pitch is only as good as your neighbours - we had a family with 3 members that coughed unbelievably heartily 24/7 and who let their toddler cry and scream at half past 2 or 6 in the mornings. We can laugh now but it wasn't the dawn chorus we were looking for!
Overall a site that scores 98% with us - we would love to go back but it's taken us nearly 8 hours to get back to Brighton!
Relaxing and Enjoyable
We visited this site in early July, I had been here before, but a long time ago. I liked it then, and the site has certainly improved further. We paid a little extra, and had a great pitch. The site was quieter than I expected, less than half full.
There are two shower blocks. The main one and a further family shower block, which we were invited to use, as we were close to them, and the site was quiet. The main shower blocks were very clean (cleaned daily) and we never had to queue. There are two family rooms on the end of this block too. The family shower block rooms are big, and each contains a shower, wash basin, and toilet. I can imagine these are a big boon to people with young families.
Our pitch was spacious with plenty of room for tent and car, and we had a hedge on three sides. We found these pitches to have a nice secluded feel. Higher up the site there are more open pitches, and rows of level terraced pitches run across the site. Tents and caravans were spread out evenly across the site, so we never felt at all crowded.
There is a play area, a small shop, and a small fishing pond, (which I didn't get to try, but looks nice). There is a takeaway near the shop, open a few hours a day, again we didn't try it. There's even a couple of washing machines on coin meters.
The staff were very helpful.
The site is in walking distance of the nearest pub, (which also does meals), though you will have to walk on the road. And just a short drive from Woolacombe and Ilfracombe
We had an very relaxing and enjoyable stay and we will be back.
