Stayed here in August with our young grandchildren, it is a couple of minutes from the beach, not a fancy site but has the necessary facilities for camping, toilets, showers, dish washing. Peaceful and lovely views. Will definitely be back!

Basic campsite, with basic enough facilities - and because of that they work. The showers are Hot and the view is miraculous. It's a 5 to 10 minute walk into the central village of Croyde, or you can walk straight up to baggy point from just right outside the campsite. Would

Thanks very much for the balanced feedback. We are aware of the limited dishwashing etc and historically the facilities have been at the mercy of the water volume and pressure being at the end of Moor Lane and up the hill. However we have pans to engineer ways to resolve this next summer so watch this space :-) For those reading the review, this gentleman is quite right about the facilities. The ethos of Freshwell is to not provide every facility under the sun but keep camping authentic yet comfortable for families and small groups with a relaxed atmosphere. The idea is to notice nature. Look forward to seeing you next summer!

Our little family group ( me, herself and junior - now 18) returned to croyde for a couple of nights last week. Looking to avoid previous experiences at the larger sites nearby we were very pleased to be recommended to stay here. We received a friendly welcome and invited to
