We where made to feel very welcome, the staff are very friendly and helpfull. Although not an up to date site it is kept in lovely condition. The site is close to some really wonderfull scenery.

After a 6 hour tow it was a real pleasure to receive a genuine welcome.

This review is for Lynton

After a 6 hour tow it was a real pleasure to receive a genuine welcome. Have been here before but this is truly magnificent. The site team obviously want members to have a good time - they all really worked at it. OK the facilities are a little ancient - but every bit as clean as at home. Well done and thanks. It made the stay great. Walk the Coast Path (or drive, of course) to the Hunter's Inn. The food is really good. A bit on the expensive side - but who cares? I'm on holiday and it is worth every penny. Used to stay at Minehead - not now folks. We will be back.

The fantastic welcome from Nat was enough to make us extend the holiday.

This review is for Lynton

The fantastic welcome from Nat was enough to make us extend the holiday. She explained all the walks available from site, and maps are on sale! She also explained to us the pitches and obviously we chose the ones by the swings because of our children. The toilets were always clean, Mark and Nat over the bank holiday weekend were always checking up on the toilets and making sure campers were having a good time. There was a problem with the boiler, but Mark fixed it immediately. The grounds were kept clean and extremely peaceful even though the site was full of campers. Lots of walks, only half hour to walk into Lynton, very steep hill coming back. Careful with the goose on six acre farm. Will come back again to this relaxing and easy going site. Thank you Nat and Mark
