Are you open all-year?
Yes, we are open all year, you can arrive any day you like. 

 

Are you near the beach?
Woolacombe, Croyde and Putsbrough are all 4 and a half miles away. 
 
Can we walk to the pub?
We do have a bar and restaurant on site, which provides superb food.
There are three other pubs within walking distance.
The Crown in in West down is one and a half miles away, but means walking along a main road. We recommend a tax (£5 each way).
The Ebrington Arms is one and a half miles away, but again means walking along a main road. Best to catch the bus which runs three times an hour door-to-door, or get a tax (£5 each way).
The Rock Inn and the Kings Arms in Georgeham are both two and a half miles away and can be walk to along quiet country roads. 
 
Is there any where to cycle?
There is lots of cycling to-do in North Devon. Children are welcome to cycle on the roads and through the woods around the park. The Tarka Trail which is part of the Devon Coast to Coast rout can be joined two miles away. A planned extension to the Tarka Trail will bring the 45 mile trail through our own woods. 
 
Can I bring my dog?
Yes, dogs are most welcome on the park, but must be booked in. More information for dogs can be found here.
 
What time can we arrive/depart?
Arrival times are between 12:30pm and 9pm or dusk (whichever is earlier).
Departure time on the day of departure is 10:30am. 
 
What time is the shop and reception open?
The opening times vary throughout the year, during the Summer 8:30 – 6pm. Spring, autumn and winter opening times will be displayed in Reception. 
 
Can we have visitors when we’re on holiday?
Day visitors are welcome, but must be booked-in and paid for at Reception.
 
How often do the buses run?
The 21a bus runs from the Park entrance every 20 minuets to Ilfracombe, Braunton, Barnstaple, Bideford, East the Water, Appledoor and Westwood-Ho! The 303 runs to Woolacombe and Mortehoe a few times a day.
 
Can we have a BBQ or campfire?
You are welcome to have a barbeque, but we ask that it is raised off the ground. Bricks are available at refuse points for this. Please use barbeques in well ventilated areas only, and never take a lit or smouldering barbeque inside a tent. 
Unfortunately, fire-pits and campfires are not permitted. 
 
Can I get Wifi on my pitch?
Wifi is available across most of the park for a modest charge. A prepaid card can be purchased from the shop, or payment can be made on-line. The connection speed will vary at busy times. The wifi is operated by Clubwifi, more information is available here. ClubWifi
 
What’s the TV reception like?
Because we are in a pretty valley location, TV reception is not great. However, we have an aerial high up in the sky which is looped to each pitch in Otters Creak and Kingfisher Meadow. Connection is free, but you will need a long Coax cable – these can be hired from Reception for 50p per night along with a £10 refundable deposit.
The chances of getting a satellite signal (including Astra 2), is very unlikely. To plug into our TV loop, you will need a digital TV, or a Freeview box.
 
Can we bring two cars?
You can bring more than one car. We ask that second or third vehicles are checked in at Reception and parked in the main carpark.
 
Can we bring an awning or tent heater?
Unfortunately, electric heaters in awnings or tents are not permitted under any circumstances, as they are not energy efficient. There is a penalty of £20 per night for anyone found with an electric heater in an awning or tent. 
 
What length electric cable do I need to bring?
In-line with the Camping & Caravanning Club recommendations, we recommend that you bring a 25 metre (16amp BS4343 round pin) electric cable, as some pitches are further than others from the electric point. 
25 metre electric leads are available to purchase in the shop. We regret, that for health and safety reasons, we cannot loan electric leads. 
 
What do I need to use the electric hook-up?
You will need a ‘zig unit’ (electric hook-up unit). The unit you use must be fitted with an RCD or MCB - this is a circuit breaker in case you over-load the system. Using a zig unit will eliminate the need to phone for assistance if you use too-much power and trip the system. We do not allow hook-up leads to be used without a built in circuit breaker.
 
Can you freeze our Ice blocks?
Unfortunately, we can not freeze your ice blocks. We do however operate an ice block hire service. Each ice block is 20p per freeze/day. A £2 deposit id required per ice block which is refunded when you depart or return the ice block.
 
What time does the showers close and do we need tokens?
The showers are open all day, and are not operated with coins. 
 
Where can we read the full terms and conditions?
The full terms and conditions can be seen here.  A printed copy is available on request.
