Used this site for a one night stopover on our way to North Devon, and what a great site it is. Really friendly owners, very clean toilets and showers, and only a few min's off the M5. Only a short walk to the local village, or a short car ride to a supermarket. This really is a great site, we are now looking at maybe having a week here to visit the area.
