I think the site requires better signage both on the A39 & at the end of the lane.

I think the site requires better signage both on the A39 & at the end of the lane. There are many campsites in the area so Club signs are needed. Some shops at club sites sell local Ordnance Survey maps, I find these useful. They were not on sale at Lynton.

Beware, roads are narrow and steep, and with an accident on the M5 we arrived late.

This review is for Lynton

Beware, roads are narrow and steep, and with an accident on the M5 we arrived late. Nat received us with such care and quickly pitched us, we paid the next day- this is what we call customer service as if it was your own family. Nothing was ever too much for the wardens Mark and Nat who work so hard to make the site look good for everyone. So thank you for all your hard work, and Nat, the herbs tasted good in my soup. The site is extremely quiet, the birds are wonderful and the views from the Valley of the rocks is a postcard picture. Toilets need updating with heating, however they are clean and hot showers. I highly recommend this site, and again thanks Mark and Nat for all your hard work.

This review is for Lynton

We received a lovely warm welcome from Pam and Malcolm,the assistant holiday site managers.Our pitch was almost flat which made pitching and erecting the awning very easy. The site is very well cared for,with lovely floral displays at the site entrance and in the borders adjacent to the toilet block.The team [Nat,Mark,Pam and Malcolm were always out on site making sure that it was kept in tiptop condition.We were fortunate to have very little rain during our stay but what we did have seemed to drain away rapidly. The site is ideally placed for visiting many interesting places including Barnstaple for major supermarkets.Lynton and Lynmouth are delightful places with many places to eat and drink.The many others in the Exmoor area are all worth exploring.Porlock hill is an experience in itself but under no circumstances attempt it with a caravan.We would recommend this site and the surrounding site to anyone.

This is such a lovely site and really has a lot going for it.

This review is for Lynton

This is such a lovely site and really has a lot going for it. The pitches are a little sloped, so take your levellers. A small shop has essentials, but best to take most things with you as there weren't any larger shops or pubs very nearby. We had a friendly greeting when we arrived, and were shown where everything was, and where we could pitch up. As the weather was horrible when we got there, we were even told we could park on a vacant hard standing for the first night if we wished, and then find a suitable grass pitch area the next morning - what a nice gesture. The facilities were more than adequate, with plenty of hot water, and there's a good motor home service point too. Toilets are closed for an hour for cleaning from 11am, but that didn't cause any difficulty. The walks through the surrounding countryside are fabulous, albeit challenging at times because of steep slopes - you'll need to be reasonably fit to tackle some of them, especially the road back up to the site from Lynton. There is a bus back for those that don't fancy the up hill bit! A little disappointed at over-the-top prices for everything in Lynmouth - two pints cost us �8.55, not surprised most of the cafes had hardly anyone in them even though it was the weekend. We will most definitely be visiting here again, it's a real jewel in the North Devon crown.
