This review is for Lynton

I will be back to this site very soon for two reasons: the wardens (Nat&Mark) and the peace. I have been a member for 30+ years and I have never received such a warm welcome from any warden. Nat took time to listen to my difficulties upon approaching site which was not easy due to the bending roads and narrow lanes, do not follow the Satnav which takes you to Porlock hill, instead take the Tiverton exit. Nat gave me information about the area, the best walks I ever done, and I was only going to stay for 2 nights and ended up staying 7 nights. The toilets are clean but need some heating and modernizing, Mark keeps fixing the tiles which fall off as th building is very old. The grounds are impeccable, very peaceful and extremely relaxing as this couple are laid back and very friendly. Thank you Nat and Mark for your hard work and for making me feel so at �home�. I will spread the word hoping to see you next time I come.

This review is for Lynton

The wardens have done a great job of opening up the site by removing the overgrown undergrowth in the hedge at the bottom of the site. The trees that are there will now benefit and the ground plants can now grow. There is now a fantastic view over the Bristol Channel towards South Wales, with what must be one of the best sunsets from any camp site. The facilities are kept spotlessly clean by the wardens. If the club spent some money on updating the facilities it would be without a doute one of the best sites in the club circuit. The site will benefit from the extra hard standings and electric hook-ups that are currently being installed. We have used this site for nearly 30years and recommend it to any one who enjoys walking costal paths or walking on the moors or just relaxing with a great view.

the site was surrounded by lovely views of the countryside. The staff were very helpful in recommending things to do.he lent us some wedges to level our van out.which i thought was very nice of him.going out of his way to help us.because of this we will visit again in the future.we are new members to the club and if all the sites are like this i will be a happy camper.our 3 Chihuahua's were also allowed to come.which is one of the reasons we picked the site.there are loads of areas where you can walk dogs of just go walking yourself.
