The fields by the sand dunes are picturesque. 10 minute walk to Croyde along a metalled path. Younger crowd mostly but not too noisy. Basic but clean amenities. Staff friendly and hats off to Claire who lent me her personal phone to access the internet when I had no reception and was locked out of my car; so pleasant and... More

The most expensive campsite we've ever stayed on doesn't give you much for your money except the location. Freezing showers in the men's, no toilet roll or hand towels in the women's and all facilities in 1 set of portacabins for a lot of people. Apparently you can use the facilities at the holiday camp a 20 minute walk away.... More

Having camped in Croyde several times previously and walked quite a way (In a wetsuit with a board bag!) from Bay View Campsite, I decided to stay at surfers paradise due to its prime location. The Campsite is literally behind the sand dunes that line the back of the beach taking less than five minutes to walk to the beach.... More

Stayed a couple of nights. It had everything we needed and was close to town. More importantly it was close to the beach. No complaints here. Good facilities for showering and cleaning items. The shop could've done with being a little better stocked but, as mentioned, town was so close

I stayed here with my boyfriend last week and we were instantly greeted by the lovely people who work there, we were told that we could pitch up anywhere and so we went to the top field which was very quiet for the first few days and it was so lovely to relax and have a nice time. The same... More

We love this site, we having been coming here every opening weekend for lnger than I can recall. The location is amazing and atmosphere is great. Sadly this year things have changed. Usually there are three fields open for camping. Last weekend was different, they only opened the middle sized field, and they just kept sending them in. The overcrowding... More

We were three couples and we loved this campsite! The location is fantastic, only 3 mins walk from the beach and 5 mins to Croyde itself. The place is stunning and the beach is lovely though it does get very crowded for surfing. The people who run it are really friendly and helpful. The ground is nice and flat for... More

Fantastic location for the beach and a short stroll to a handful of shops and pubs. Nightmare to find, tiny signpost on opposite side of the road, no answer when trying to call. Nice flat fields but showers were cold on the first day and overflowing the next day and a bit stinking to be honest, hair up walls and... More

Stayed for 4 nights and found the campsite fantastic, toilets and showers good, washing up area all close by. We were right next to the beach, the holiday park (which we could use with free passes) and the... More
