Direct access to the Tarka Cycle Trail

Direct access to the Tarka Cycle Trail


Visitors to North Devon often bring along their bicycles, and many of our camping families use them on the park. We offer direct access to the Tarka Cycle trail. Parts of the trail offer safe off road cycling. We sell cycle maps and can direct you to the trail.


Well, I have to say I love the pitch size, we have a huge trailer tent and awning and were in the secluded area by the lake (113 I think) the weather was terrible and they had obviously had weeks of rain.

Despite the rain the staff were warm and cheerful, just like the welcome. We were personally escorted to our pitch, the road was muddy but the pitch was in perfect condition, we were offered some bark for our walk way which was perfect.

As I have said the pitch was ample and so were the facilities, JUST LIKE A HOTEL! they were always clean, no mud; and the floor was heated! we didn't use the take away but the menu looked brill and our neighbours raved about it.

As I said I can't see the pitch size problem, when we received our booking conformation we were reminded to check our dimensions, there were lots of sized pitches so we gave our dimensions and had plenty or space with room to spare.

Fantastic weeks camping would recommend to all! *****


We chose this site, after reading such favourable reviews, and we were NOT disappointed, it was fantastic!

We were a group of three tents, (6 x adults and 2 x little people) we were able to book good pitches, all next to each other, all with electrical hook up.

In all honesty the shower block has to be the best we have ever used, they were regularly cleaned with loads of hot water, in the gents side alone there are 13 showers!

The washing machines/driers are up to date, and work well.
The younger members of the group enjoyed the play area (we were lucky not to be pitched in that area) and the ducks around the fishing lake, should be very plump after all the bread were force fed !

It made a pleasant change to go to a campsite without a bar / entertainment, which keeps the whole site nice and peaceful, and limits the number of people coming in late, 'jollied up'

The staff are very attentive, and so helpful, polite and efficient they put some other campsites to shame, we were even guided to our pitches.

We were there for the 1st two weeks in August weather a bit wet (ok, it poured down on and off, which caused the entrance to the field become boggy, but it never stopped us getting in or out)

Croyde beach is excellent for body boarding, it makes the 'interesting' road down to the beach worth it.

IF you are looking for a nice quiet campsite, with cracking views, excellent facilities and the nicest staff, this is the place for you.
