I have been staying at mitchums meadow nearly every summer ever since I was 14, so nearly half my life. I have never had a bad experience of either the camp site facilities or the saff who run it. In fact Guy (the owner) is a lovely man who deals with all customers fairly and keeps other guests feelings in mind particularly if people are making excessive noise late at night so that everyone around can still have a good stay. Guys daughter Faye is a wonderful manager who run the site with the sensitivity and common sense, she was very helpful and friendly to my group..
Both sites are well situated, close to the village and the beach, my personal favourite would be mitchums meadow purely because you can hear the surf from your tent at night and see it as soon as you wake up. All the facilities are cleaned regularly and maintained to a high standard which is a credit to the staff because they get a lot of use.
I have read some of the other reviews and most are accurate apart from those few negative ones. However as someone who has spent a lot of time there I can probably describe the type of people that wrote them without ever having seen them. Cocky, arrogant city folk who aren't used to being told to abide by rules for the common interest of others staying there. Believe me these are not the type of people that you want to camp next to. So I'm glad they say they will go elsewhere.
If you are looking for a friendly holiday venue, run by people who believe that respect for ones neighbours isn't to much to ask then Mitchums is the place for you. If you want to come back really drunk, shouting and being agro then this isn't the place to book.
Hope this helps, enjoy you stay. Vince
