Great site for quiet family camping 19/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    Freshwell is a clean, well run campsite. The owners were welcoming and happy to help whenever necessary. The facilities might be termed basic by some, but the showers, toilet block and washing up area were clean and worked and that is all you really need at the end of the day. During our stay the camp site was quiet and there was plenty of room to spread out. It is a short walk to Croyde beach and the views across the bay from the campsite were spectacular. There is no wifi available on the site, but I saw that as a bonus :)

    Warm welcome, relaxed atmosphere, open field with amazing views of the beach...great open air market on Sunday and Tuesday morning at the bottom of the field, a short walk away from the beach...waves great for surfing, beach complete with a life guard...very safe feel about campsite and beach and a five minute walk from a cash machine, shop, take away on another neighbouring campsite...so you get the amenities without the organized feel of a large campsite...
