Not what it used to be...

Review of Cloud Farm

Jun 22, 2013, by DevonPob

Haven't been to Cloud Farm for 3 years until a trip last weekend and I have to say that whilst the location is still utterly stunning, the site as a whole does feel somewhat neglected.

Having two young children the attraction to us of Cloud Farm was that you had the beautiful valley location and the stream right there for the kids to paddle in but crucially that the stream was fenced off so they couldn't get to it unless we were with them.  Now large sections of the fence have been allowed to fall down or are missing completely and this adds to the overall sense that the glory days of the site are behind it.

The shop/cafe is no longer really a shop as they only sell milk and a few drinks and chocolate bars.  We did try some of the hot food and that was fair but nothing to write home about.  As others have said the stables are no longer open for riding. The other facilities (loos, potwashing room etc) were all fine but had the same feel of just needing a bit of time and effort spent bringing them up to scratch

Wish I could be more positive as Cloud Farm has long been one of my favourite campsites, I just hope the owners feel the same and are planning to give the site some of the tlc it needs and deserves.
