Been here many times, always enjoyable. The site appears well run, very clean and tidy. The toilet blocks always very clean with good hot showers. The bar is rather on the expensive side, although this is probably to be expected, but the food is well cooked and tasty. However, a chicken burger and chips for £8.45 does NOT represent value for money.
Only WIFI available is in the bar area, but our experience was that when you had good WIFI, you had no signal for calls and/or texts! Some people may be happy with this as if you're after a total 'getaway' holiday, you might not want signal but it's worth bearing this in mind! Sky Sports is shown in the bar area but only on two of the TV's near to the bar. Two pool tables and a dart board can also be found.
Some of the views (depending what field you're in) are spoilt by wind turbines, nothing to do with Stowford but they do spoil it.
All in all, I would recommend Stowford, it's well placed with easy access to to Woolacombe and Ilfracombe and most of the North Devon coast.
