    Magnificent views from campsite of both Croyde Bay and the surrounding countryside. Always had hot water in the toilet blocks, showers and washing area which were also clean. Long fence for drying wetsuits and a bin for rinsing them. £1 charge for freezing your ice packs which meant fresh food & cold drinks each day. Able to have BBQs. Safe site.

    Disliked: 

    Not a dislike but shower cubicles only had one hook in each. Could do with 2 hooks so take your things in a large shopping bag!

    Showers and toilet facility were good, although the showers were spacious and hot I felt they could do with either a shelf or bench to put your clean clothes and toiletries 😊
