Hele Valley Holiday Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 5 October 2013

We stayed in one of the pods a few weeks ago and had a brilliant time :)
The park is flawless - set in a beautiful location, extremely clean and well maintained washing/toilet facilities, friendly staff and a safe environment for children with a contemporary play park.
I must admit we have stayed in some very grim seaside parks which had been misrepresented on their websites so were a little apprehensive before arrival but we were delighted with this little gem and will return again and again for a relaxing getaway.
Thank you Hele Valley Holiday Park for restoring our faith in coastal holiday parks. I didn't want to leave!

We had a fantastic time at Hele Valley.
The campsite is fab, very clean and great pitches. It is a good base for surrounding area.
Our daughter liked the park on site and we tried the breakfast from the local farm which was delicious! We had a little problem on the first day due to the fact the local shop was closed and we couldn't use the cash machine. But once we knew this is wasn't far to get supplies and to get some cash in Ilfracombe. Staff were friendly and helpful when we needed to know where local amenities were. We had a great holiday, the caravans and lodges looked good as well.

Beautiful camp site in amazing little valley. Breakfast from the adjoining farm in their kitchen is surreal but outstanding. It was quiet while were there in our tent, time of year I guess, but we weren't complaining. It is a great campsite as it is well sheltered from the elements. Well placed for surfing and going to Ilfracombe in the evenings.

The sign at the entrance to Hele Valley Holiday Park states that it is the best one in North Devon and our recent stay gave us no reason to dispute that claim.
My wife and I have just spent a week in a Dove caravan and cannot fault it. It was spotlessly clean, well equipped and maintained to the highest standards. All the staff we had contact with were friendly and efficient and were always willing to help. A request to set up the caravans central heating to suit our requirements was literally done within minutes of us asking. The Park is in a lovely location and is ideally suited to those wishing to explore the area either by car or in our case, on foot. We thought the £40 refundable deposit was a great idea as hopefully it will encourage visitors to respect the caravans and leave them as they find them. It was probably the cleanest and best maintained caravan we have ever stayed in.

Hi there,
Thank you for your excellent review.
Excellent to hear you were both very satisfied with the caravan and that it added to your holiday in such a positive way.
Also great to hear you found us to be in such a beautiful location; It is definitely a different way of life down here which I hope others will also have the chance to embrace one day.
We hope to welcome you both back to our park in the future.
Take care and all the best.

Went for a long weekend in our Camper van and chose this Park as being the closest to Ilfracombe. Found this a fantastic site with excellent facilities and within walking distance of Hele and also Ilfracombe. The site itself is beautifully kept and has everything you could want. Pub, restaurant and tea shop in Hele one end of the site and Farmhouse breakfast and supper clubs the other end! Will definitely be going back.

We were very fortunate to have found this accommodation at the last minute in a secluded valley on the outskirts of Illfracombe. The cottage that we stayed in looked to be recently appointed or refurbed as I found it very difficult to find fault with it. Plenty of room available with a good size well stocked kitchen and two bath/shower rooms which was great for when you have kids with you. Everything you could need is within reasonable driving distance and basic supplies are a short walk away. The local beach was simple and picturesque. Staff were friendly and helpful. Fully recommended.
