Bay View Farm is unusual in that although it is a pretty, quiet, uncommercialised site, it has the advantage that it is literally a 3 minute walk into picturesque Croyde with its narrow winding roads and thatched cottages

The village has 3 decent (popular) pubs, some quality restaurants, gift shops, ice cream parlours, surf shops and a post office. It's great to be able to have a good meal, a couple of pints and then have a short walk back to the peaceful campsite.

Croyde is very popular with the young, especially surfers, as the beach is just a few minutes walk away through the sand dunes. The campsite itself only takes couples and families - no all male or all females groups.

Bayview has views over the sea to Lundy Island and there are footpaths that can take you into the hills and over to Saunton Sands.

The toilets and showers are quite curious in that they look a bit ramshackle from the outside but are in fact very nice inside.

All in all a great campsite (my sister and brother-in-law come here every year) especially if you're into surfing and have a camper van (which they are and they have). Click here to add your thoughts,
