Ocean pitch is a fantastic campsite, that I will definitely be returning to. It is run by a really friendly bunch of people. The showers, toilets and washing up area are perfectly clean; the cleanest I have come across on a campsite. The facilities are nicely decorated with bunting and pictures. The campsite provides a free wifi area, charging facilities...

The location, the people, the atmosphere and the all round awesomeness of this campsite is hard to describe. The site is small, open for only three months a year and due to planning restrictions there are no permanent structures on site, that said, the owners Benny & Lou haven't let this stop them providing a superb service with innovative, ultra-clean...

The location for Ocean Pitch really can't be beaten, neither can Benny and Lou's marketing and branding. Some really clever touches around this small, but perfectly formed, camp site. The enthusiasm of its owners is well matched by the bouncing and warm welcome from their young staff and their continuous boundless energy through our 4 night stay. Whilst the branding...

My boyfriend and I stayed here for three nights and honestly didn't want to leave. The campsite is right by the beach, the pitches are spacious and the toilets and showers are spotlessly clean. Nothing was too much for the staff and there was a lovely food can on site selling breakfast baps and snacks. I wouldn't hesitate to return...

Back down at Croyde for my annual surfing holiday and, despite the vagaries(!) of wind and wave, I had another fantastic time. Things didn't bode well when I arrived in Croyde to see the sea was absolutely flat, with barely a ripple, but the surf improved during the week which gave me a good chance to practice on the board...

Really fab site, Loved the bell tent, food kiosk, reception and staff - who were always smiling and helpful. Good showers, lots of decorative touches everywhere. Tucked away in the top corners the bell tents have plenty of space inside (like a tardis) and wooden table/chairs outside. Perfectly positioned site, can walk over the hill to the next beach, surf...

Location is great with some pitches having a view of the bay. The staff are great and friendly, body board hire is great value. Attention to detail is the thing that makes this place different to others, the toilets and showers are spotless. The pitches are a little narrow so big tents will struggle with outside sitting space. But we...

Nothing is too much trouble for any of the staff at Ocean Pitch, this is the 3rd year we have stayed and it is a perfect site with brilliant staff. It is a well run spotlessly clean site. Brilliant location just a few minutes walk to the beach.

This is our fourth year at the site, our third with Benny and Lou at the helm. It gets better each year I think. It's clean, it's organised and the staff will help you out with anything you need. Pitching our tent in the rain was the subject of multiple aid offers. Surf spot and time tips aplenty. It's not...

Spent a long weekend based out of Ocean Pitch. It was my first stay, but I was very impressed with the level of attention to detail throughout! The facilities were excellent and were are seemingly cleaned non-stop. Other nice touches were the on-Site surf hire, free wifi, on-Site snack van (serving breakfast and lunch) and wetsuit hanging area. Perfect location...
