We slept one night in our camping van on this holiday park. Excellent, very clean friendly park in lovely countryside. We can (ans shal) recommend this site to every Dutchman we know who is going that way! AL (Holland)

Had a lovely couple of nights here at the end of May. Stayed in a pod, more basic than others we've stayed in but enough room and clean. Wasn't keen on the pebbles surrounding the pods, grass would be better especially if we had the kids with us but I suppose they are practical if it rained? The site is very clean, peaceful and beautiful. It's only a short walk to the beach and I can highly recommend the cafe there. We had breakfast there and it was delicious.

This was our second trip to the park. The first time we stayed in a caravan, this time we had a lodge with a hot tub. The lodge was spotlessly clean & well appointed; it was lovely to open the french doors and let the sunshine in and sit on the decking with the kids in the hot tub (which was also very clean). Service on the park was very good and we had a peaceful, relaxing stay. As the children were older on this second visit we walked into Ilfracombe a couple of times (both by road and over the hills on the coastal path), visited the local pools for rock pooling, went to Woolacombe, visited the local tea rooms and made use of the facilities on the park. Very enjoyable stay and we will definitely be back.

We visited Hele Valley last summer with friends who camped, whilst we stayed in a caravan. We returned again this year and stayed in a luxury lodge. It's a lovely site with very helpful staff. The kids loved the playpark and the nature trail. The location is great, a nice peaceful haven a short drive away from illfracombe and woolacombe. Very suprised with the standard of our luxury lodge this year. Would recommend to families who want to avoid the huge caravan parks near to Woolacombe.

Superb if you want a quiet getaway, lovely lodges ( friends stayed in a new laburnum) all set in a picturesque valley in Hele. No clubhouse so just perfect as a camping or holiday base for the North Devon Coast. Hele bay for crabbing and rock climbing only a few minutes walk and just a short drive to the harbour in Ilfracombe. Friends and family have joined us before and will be back.

This is our second visit to Hele Valley, the site is ideally placed to explore north devon only 15 minutes drive from Woolacombe. The site is well maintained and the customer service is great and you are made to feel very welcome. We stayed in a family lodge which was spotless and home from home. When we return to the area would not hesitate to book again.
