“Well run, well kept site”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2013

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.

Our daughter found Stowford Meadows on the internet after we mentioned we 'might' go camping... We decided on the Thursday we would book it for the Saturday and we are so glad we did! The staff on site couldn't have been more helpful, everyone was very friendly. The facilities were extremely clean and very well equipped.
The pitches all had electrical hook ups and the pitch sizes were good. The shop had everything we needed and the food at the restaurant was great with big portions, perfect after pitching our tent in high winds!
The horse riding staff were lovely, as we're the views. Petorama was fun and relaxed with our daughter being able to handle the rabbits and baby guinea pigs as much as she liked.
Prices were very reasonable all round. A great place for families or for those wanting to visit the lovely North Devon countryside and coast.

We have a caravan stored down at Stowfords so we go as often as possible.
We stay on field one and are always impressed with how clean the facilities are, and how much there is to do on the site! A welcoming resteraunt, bar and fantastic fish and chips. The Petorama is definatley worth a visit, so many animals and we even got to feed a calf.
We often stay in mid or low season when its a little quieter but we cant wait to stay in peak season this year, theres always a good buzz!
Brilliant location as only a few miles from Ilfracombe or Combe Martin.
The staff are always so friendly and helpful, I wouldnt want to stay anywhere else in Devon.

Room Tip: Always check opening times for facilities in the brocure, espesially if your traveling outside of pe...

This is now our 3rd visit here. Always clean and tidy and generally well looked after. Reception friendly and helpful. Food served always good and reasonably priced. Local ales!! well kept and well priced. Park in a good location for visiting beaches of Woolacombe, Croyde. Tarka Cycle/Walking Trail short drive away. Pitch are sloping however nothing to serious. Nice walk around the park down past the brook. Plenty of space for the kids to play. We had a problem with our caravan on site. Went to the service center and within the hour they came out and sorted out the issue. Grate service. All in all we really like this place and will be back time an time again.

Our first visit but we were so impressed that we shall be back again and bring the family. The toilet blocks were immaculate and lovely to have a bath available.
Reception were friendly and helpful as were all the staff on site. We tried the restaurant, takeaway and pub and the standard of food and drink was excellent. Sunday lunch was particularly impressive.
The swimming pool is a nice size and beautifully warm with clean well kept facilities and helpful staff.
We were in field 1 and our only worry is that nobody keeps to the speed limit of 10 mph and it would be risky with young children. We suggest some speed ramps such as those leading down to pub and swimming pool.
We enjoyed the crazy golf and just love the petting zoo and horse riding which along with soft play and swimming will keep the kids happy.
See you again soon.

Room Tip: Be very careful with small children on site roads as so many people speed including staff vehicles.
