– Terms & Conditions –

Ocean Pitch Campsite wants the best for its campers. Whether your stay is centred around beach & surf activities or you’re simply taking the time to kick back, relax and enjoy the peaceful surroundings, we’re keen to make every effort to ensure the site is peaceful for your stay.

We welcome couples, small families and some well behaved groups. Like-minded people wanting to have a great time and enjoy the north Devon beaches. The campsite owners, Benny & Lou are a young couple who make every effort to run a relaxed and quiet site, but they’re keen to ensure all campers have fun to ensure a pleasant and happy stay.

Therefore, this means we have a number of site “rules”:

Tent Size
We prefer small (2/3 person) or medium (4/6 person) capacity tents, but please speak with a member of the team if your tent size is bigger to check if your tent is suitable.

Camper Vans
Vans such as VW campers are acceptable (or similar) & some larger vans such as Mercedes Sprinter’s. If you campervan is bigger please contact a member of the team to check if it is suitable. We do accept awnings that attach to campervans, but again please check with a member of the team to check suitability so we can allocate you the correct pitch.

Sorry no caravans.

Trade Vans
Small vans (Preferably no high tops, but contact the team for further details)

Pitch Size
At peak times space is at a premium and tents will be pitched fairly close together.

Electric hook ups
We have 3 serviced pitches only at a charge of £3 extra per night. Phone/ tablet or any electrical device can be charged in Reception at a cost of 50p.

We take a maximum of 12 in a mixed group & we ask that groups make every effort to respect the quiet nature of the site. (Please note. larger groups can be acceptable on request).This makes our sites unsuitable for Hen or Stag nights.<
