My partner & I had a lovely week at Karrageen. The campsite is in a nice location and is generally very peaceful. It does have a good atmosphere also though, particularly when people are spending time around their pitches, cooking their evening meals. The owners were very helpful and the on-site shop was useful for any basic essentials. We really enjoyed the freshly baked croissants. The toilets and showers are modern and were very clean. We didn't mind at all paying 20p for 2 minutes for the showers. 20p or 40p was sufficient for me as a woman, depending on whether I washed my hair or not! I imagine that paying for the showers really helps conserve water and prevents people having lengthy showers at the expense of others who would be waiting. It was great having the facility of free (wall mounted style) hair dryers. It was also very useful having access to hot water to wash pots in and also washing machines and a dryer (although we didn't use them). I also thought a £1 charity donation to charge my camera was very good.
The bedtime 'keeping noise to a minimum' is a little early for us normally during 'holiday time', but given we were woken very early by the sounds of wildlife, this was no problem at all. It does feel like a bit of a hike to Hope Cove by foot but given we are 'walkers' this again wasn't an issue for us. You cpuld of course just drive down.
We would definitely stay at Karageen again if visiting that part of Devon. If you stay there it is definitely worth a walk down not only to Hope Cove (& pub there) but also a walk up to the Bolberry Downs (& Port Light), & of course the coast paths all around.
