“living off the land”
Reviewed July 25, 2013 via mobile

what a lovely site, staff were great eager to help in any way and really friendly. We were a little worried about compost toilets and solar showers, they was one of the hottest and powerful showers i've ever experienced and loved the toilets, i want one they were also spotless and thats something i can't say about other campsites i've stayed at for much more money! This is a very reasonably priced campsite ideally placed between some beautiful scenery. The animals were a great touch thanks Holly the calf for the fun times, the goat gang and dogs were lovely and supervised or in their pens.

We enjoyed lovely campfires at night (maybe a few too many marshmallows) and experieced a really nice meal in the local pub which was resonably priced for the high standard of food we recieved only 5 minutes away from camp, we had some lovely fish and chips on the first night which is also walking distance, although we drove and won't be making that mistake next year.

Frozen ice block swap and mobile charging for £1 were nice touches, only negatives i can think of are no antibac in toilets (but there are hand washing facilities near) and no mirrors in showers. We'll definately go back to northdown farm next year for a nice relaxing stress free eco holiday. I went with two friends and can't wait to take my family so they can experienced a real farm camping holiday with just enough mod cons to make it relaxing.

A mixed bag
On the positive-
Great location. Close to a nice pub and bus route. 30 mins walk from a beach.Plenty of space. Not a bad price. Allows open fires. Relaxed.

On the less positive side-
Avoid if you are not a dog fan. The site has a temporary cage of sheep dogs and puppies. Great if the remained in the cage but they were let out periodically and you would see them rounding up frightened children and parents dashing over. Children were allowed in the enclosure and i saw them turn nasty on a little girl and parents dashed in to rescue. My kids would not go to the loo alone if the dogs were out. I also had to clear up two dog feces and saw the dogs do more that i could not find. The dog situation did spoil the trip. On the positive side the campers dogs were all fine.
The shop had little in it.
The beach bus did not run mid week.

Overall it had a feeling of not really being ready or properly open.
