Newberry Valley is a peaceful dog-friendly AA Five Pennant touring and camping park, only a few minutes walk from Newberry and Combe Martin beaches, the South West Coast Path, and the pubs and cafes of the traditional North Devon village of Combe Martin.

It is a Gold Award David Bellamy site with green rolling hills on either side of the valley, and you'll find an abundance of wildlife all around. There is a beautiful two acre coarse fishing lake on site which is securely fenced, as well as a children's play area. Dogs are welcome on site, and there is an enchanting ancient woodland walk to keep you fit and healthy!

You will find the friendly staff will do their utmost to ensure that you enjoy your stay at Newberry Valley, and cleanliness of the facilities is of paramount importance to us.

The luxurious facilities block features underfloor heating throughout the private shower rooms, toilets with wash basins and even a family bathroom for those who prefer to soak in the tub. There is also a laundry room and dishwashing room, and all these facilities are centrally located within the park.

Although there are plenty of shops in the village you'll find extra convenience with the small on-site shop which stocks all the essentials, and where you can order your fresh bread and newspapers daily (during peak season).

There is a varied selection of all grass or grass and hard-standing pitches to choose from, including our popular fully-serviced Premier pitches, and on-site WIFI is available.

Newberry Valley is open between mid-March and the end of October.

Reviews of Newberry Valley Park

A gem! Top quality site and facilities, quiet, relaxing, everything you could need. All staff were friendly and helpful. We took three dogs with us and it was a perfect spot, with a woodland walk on site, dog friendly beaches on the doorstep, dog friendly Combe Martin. Definitely recommended.

Ground was hard for basic tent pegs will need better ones nxt time .pitched right near the entrance large enough for car and 15 ft tent .lambs opposite nice in the morning to wake up to. As for the wolves stop moaning !!!! This was fantastic and so unreal when they did howl ( which wasnt often twice maybe a day if that )toilet blocks fab and they keep them so clean . My only bad side the fridge aint big enough .especialy if site becomes busier with people in tents .

I have two young daughters 4 & 7 who wanted to experience camping in a tent. I saw the website and it looked ideal. I did not want a large site. I rang on the Friday evening and spoke to one of the owners Dawn, who was very helpful. I left booking till the night before and expressed I wanted a middle sited pitch away from the entrance. They understood my concern and were able to accommodate us near to the childrens play area. On arrival the staff were pleasant and welcoming, you are given a security number for the barrier and then shown direct to your pitch. I wanted to let my daughters feel they had some freedom to roam (within reason). The site was small enough that you felt safe and they could ride their bikes around the site. The play park can only be entered through a small wooden gate. Further walks on site lead you to a large fishing lake which thank fully was not covered with algae like on other camps I've seen nor buzzing with horseflys which is often the trade off with lakes. The walk around the lake is pretty and feels away from it all. There is access to a hidden wooded walk which we did not have time to do. The facilities block is central and I found immaculate. I have seen larger sites with smaller shower and washing blocks. There even is a complimentary fridge and microwave which for a novice tent enthusiast, having the fridge was a godsend in this heat. There are plenty of washroom and family bathrooms and also laundry room and spacious dish washing areas within the block. The small reception area sells a few essentials, some toys, papers, fresh bread etc. Basically all the little things you find you might need. There is wifi on site but we had no use to try it. I can say this site is absolutely lovely and I would be astonished Newberry Valley received any negative comments. You can always gauge an enjoyable stay from the fun and contentment of your children. My two loved it. Opposite the site entrance is a short walk through a narrow walkway that leads off to a pebble beach which dog walkers can use. All dogs we saw, which were only 3 were well behaved around children. If you lean off right (partway down the walkway) you stay on a path which leads you to the main sandy beach in beautiful cove with tearooms, pub and anything else you would expect from a small seaside. However, I can imagine this being packed in the height of summer, although Coombe Martin has many beaches/coves scattered around. We paid £23 for a large pitch with water tap.

The map on the website is clearly marked out but does not do it justice, it all appears flat but rows of pitches are on high and lower tiers which ensures everyone has enjoys the country view.

A lovely, friendly, family run site. Enjoy

Had a lovely few days here,toilet & shower blocks were very good, clean & spacious,haven't been anywhere before that provide a microwave & fridge for you to use .To hear the Wolves were amazing .The staff were also very friendly & helpful .It was expensive compared to other sites we've been on but worth paying that extra bit for peace & quiet,would definitely go back

Had a great stay, facilities were spacious and clean, and staff friendly. We had a premier pitch near to the
lake and the children loved the morning visits from the ducks.The sound of wolves howling was thrilling and not at all intrusive. Short stroll into town for seaside essentials, ice-cream, buckets and spades, pubs! Would recommend.

I would like to recommend anyone to stay at Newberry Valley Park, as we found when booking they were very accommodating for a group of 4 tents of family and friends. When we arrived we were greeted and given our security codes the escorted to the allocated pitches, they are a good size and well maintained with water pipes between two pitches, The bathrooms/toilet facilities are excellent, so clean and even when it rained all day they did not suffer in anyway, even a free hairdryer . The washing up room was spacious and clean; they also have 4 washing machines and tumble dryers which were very handy when we had persistent rain. The park itself is well maintained with beautiful walks and lakes, also the village and beach are easily accessible. Will we definitely be returning to Newberry Valley Park in the near future, Well done!

Having been camping for 20 years all over Britain this is one of the best sites we have had the pleasure of staying on. The staff could not have been more friendly and helpful. Despite some atrocious wet "summer" weather the ground was very well draining. The view over the lake to the surrounding hills was lovely - even in the rain!!!
The sound of the wolves was a unique one in itself and just added to the enjoyment of staying at this site.
The toilet block is the best we have ever come across.
I would highly recommend this site to anyone looking for a peaceful and relaxing break and was well worth our 1,000 mile round trip to get there. If ever we were are in Devon again we would definitly stay at this site

Toilet block, super can not fault. Pitch poor grass worn away, turns to mud when wet,very uneven.Fishing lake looks great -but full of weed ,only 2/3 swims worth using,not cheap; Entry to site on a bend ,no footpath for approx 100 yds towards village,dangerous for pushchairs/families .Now for the bad bit,They advertise peace & quiet ,not at night with howling wolves which are kept at the far end of the site regular as a clock ,we did raise the point and the reply ; nobody has complained before ,which is the same as other campers were told..we will not be back.

Response from Newberry Valley Park
I would like to take the opportunity to clarify some details here... on land at the rear of the park is the Wolf Centre which is run by Shaun Ellis (who has had a couple of programmes on TV). The wolves usually howl at dawn and dusk as a way of communication between packs - of course this may not be everyone's "cup of tea" but for many it is the most magical sound and adds hugely to their overall experience at Newberry Valley.

Finally with regard to the worn pitches we do our utmost to keep the pitches maintained however at the end of a long and at times wet season, it is difficult to offer pitches in excellent condition. That said, we do always take on board constructive critisism as that is how we can improve our service and facilities.
Sincerely
Dawn Fletcher
i would never stay at this camp site again.
very expensive, but the grass surfaces are not flat enough (tilted, like sleeping on a hill!!!) so was an uncomfortable nights sleep. Also there were loud animals noises all night, apparently from the wolf farm that they keep...
also cars just drive straight past your tent, which i found worrying.

the toilet facilities you would expect to be amazing because of the new build facilities they have had put in. but there were no shampoo or soap dispensers provided, and the same applied to the laundry room, there were no dispensers for washing powers, etc. so although nice looking facilities, they were chocka block full of people, so be prepared to queue, and then be rushed out like a production line.

i also found the staff to be very miserable and militant! not relaxed at all. when they want you out, you better go (after they get your money)!

also the only view you have from this site is of other tents, cars and caravans, nothing glamorous like cliffs and rolling hills as the website suggests! don't expect a sea view!

and boring as hell to, there are no provisions for socializing whatsoever!

so this campsite is good if you like a militant army regimented feel, with no soap dispensers anywhere, a warden who is meant to be on at night but is not, and having cars driving past your tent...

horrible experience, and never again.

there are plenty campsites a 2 min walk further from coombe martin, that i shall visit next time!
