Guest Reviews & Ratings

We stayed at Freshwell for a long weekend in the middle of August and just had the best time. Everything was faultless. The guys on site were really helpful and having Beetbox nearby was a massive plus. 10/10 and I'm already planning to come back next year.

The guys who own and run the campsite were so accommodating, helpful and lovely!! It also has the most amazing views across Croyde which are unrivalled from any other campsite in the area!!

Wouldn't camp anywhere else in Croyde! Price and views cannot be beaten. Have been camping here for the last 6 years and will return for many more.
