Main Description
Our van is in really good condition and consists of one double bedroom, a twin bedroom, kitchen, toilet and shower room, and living room, with large "wrap around" sofa seating and dining table. There is also a double sofa bed in the living area.

Heating is provided by a gas fire in the living area and electric fan heating in the other areas. Gas and electricity is included in the rental price. We provide duvets/pillows but you will need to bring bed linen, towels, bath mat and tea towel. The kitchen is well equipped with all the usual stuff you would expect, but also including a cafeteria and milk jug - which we never seem to find when we rent places!

The deck is a real feature of our caravan - it is one of the biggest on the park, so plenty of room for sitting outside sipping a beer or glass of wine when the sun shines... or even when it doesn't.

Hele Valley Holiday Park, a gold award winning park on the eastern side of Ilfracombe on the North Devon coast, is in its own little valley. Hele beach is a five to 10-minute walk from the park entrance, as is the nearest bar/restaurant, Hele Billy. We also have the lovely Hele Corn Mill Tea Rooms on our doorstep, which makes delicious cakes from its own flour and consistently receives fantastic reviews on Tripadvisor. The farm at the camping end of the site serves a fantastic breakfast during the summer, including homemade sausages. There?s a very well-stocked shop attached to the petrol station in Hele village, where you can get all the things you?ve forgotten to bring with you, including toiletries.

There is a public swimming pool less than five minutes drive away and Watermouth Castle Family themepark is five minutes away by car. Bus stops are also close by, making it possible to access a wide range of places by public transport, perhaps combining a walk along the coast path and bus back.

The location of the park makes it easy to get into the lovely countryside inland by foot or cycle, including Exmoor, the Tarka trail out of Ilfracombe and the coast path eastwards towards Coombe Martin and westwards to Ilfracombe and Morthoe. Our 'van also makes a good base for exploring the surfing hotspots of Croyde, and for weddings at the Tunnel Beaches venue. Ilfracombe has some good coffee spots, delis and restaurants, particularly down by the Quay, where "Verity", Damien Hirst's dramatic sculpture now sits.

In busy periods, we let weekly from Saturday-Saturday, but I am happy to consider short breaks out of high season (minimum 3 nights).

Our last minute booking was really good value for money and the communication with Sarah throughout was excellent. The caravan was very well equipped, spacious and clean and the park was tranquil and beautiful. My family and I had a wonderful stress free week and would not hesitate to return or recommend this property.

Beautiful caravan in a lovely quiet location. We had a relaxing time walking out from the caravan into Ilfracombe (only a 20 minute walk to the harbour) and beyond. The deck was a real bonus giving an outdoor space to relax in and eat meals and play board games with the children. My eldest son was particularly fascinated listening to the owls in the adjacent trees at night. Site staff were all really friendly and helpful. Would have no hesitation in staying here again and using it as a base to explore this stunning part of Devon. I will definitely be recommending this excellent value caravan to all our friends and family.
Owner Feedback
Thanks for your review - being able to walk out of the door and into Ilfracombe relatively quickly is one of the things we really like about the Hele Valley site; you can always get the bus back too!

I have stated that we were a family with young children, that is partly true due to our 5yr old son. Our 19yr old daughter and her friend were also with us. What can I say about the caravan ...... Amazing on all counts. We had a lovely week and spent most of the time outdoors. The caravan boasts an ample decking with a gate which provided security for our younger one along with space to create his construction site or dinosaur land! The site is well run and maintained with help and advice available at reception from 0900-2100. Places of interest are close by and the beaches are clean. We would not hesitate to book again and strongly recommend to others.

What a wonderful place to stay....site was very quiet, childrens play area well maintained,lovely clean van,everything you could want in the kitchen. I agree with others that the bed is small but its standard size for a caravan so no fault of the Sarahs. Good communication from start to finish. All in all I would recommend Sarah and her van as a good hastle free family holiday and we would certainly go back!

Lovely spacious caravan full of every goody you could ever wish for. In particular we liked the spacious decking and plenty of grassed area to put the picnic blanket down and enjoy the sun until late in the evening. Even had new camping chairs for our use. Found the mattress comfy and the shower was powerful. The site is beautifully maintained and well located. Only minor negative comment and I do mean minor was the cooker hood filter needs replacing or vacuum clean at changeover. The 2 pubs within walking range are a real bonus and 'Hele Billys' serve excellent food as well. We hired the WI-FI and got good service from it. Had a super week and could have happily stayed for longer.

Thanks for your positive review - I've mentioned cooker hood filter to reception and they're going to replace it, thanks for pointing out. Sarah

Excellent location, beautiful site and extremely well equipped and clean caravan. Very good value for money booking direct with owners through this website (far far cheaper than the vans owned by the Hele Valley site!). We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Loved Ilfracombe and surrounding areas. Only downside for us was the small and very very firm beds - suggest you take a mattress topper with you. I thought you needed to take your own bed linen, but not the actual duvets and pillows. Luckily we had taken our own duvets, pillows and linen - otherwise we would have been in a bit of a pickle. Overall though, very happy..
Owner Feedback
Thanks for your kind review: the caravan does have duvets and pillows, which are stored under the double bed, apologies if you didn't find them, but their location is mentioned in the info sent with booking confirmation.

We liked the converted telephone booth stocked with books and DVDs to borrow. Site staff were friendly and helpful. Easy walking to Ilfracombe and near to public indoor swimming pool.Reserved parking space adjacent to caravan.

What a wonderful experience from the time of booking with helpful and timely information from the owner to the holiday itself. The location is perfect by a stream which is lovely to hear and the woodland behind with the variety of wild birds and squirrels which can be viewed the window or the patio. The condition is first class with everything you need, great value for money. The staff at the park are helpful and friendly. Looking forward to visiting again and would certainly recommend this caravan and site to others. Thankyou to the owner

My Brother and i stayed at Hele Valley for 6 days and had a lovely time.We were positioned nicely on the park and had the good fortune to be by a little stream,which gave it that extra country feel.I found the caravan to be spotless and with everything you need for a caravan Holiday.The sea is a 5 minute walk away from the road, and we thoroughly enjoyed our coastal walks in to Ilfracombe Town and down into the fishing harbour with its fantastic views.I found the owner to be very professional and pleasant in all our dealings, and would have stayed Longer if her Mum had not booked the van for the weekend we left.

Our first stay in a caravan was a very pleasant surprise. This caravan is lovely, in a good position on the campsite, tucked back from the road with it's own parking spot. The facilities are fantastic - very nice shower, and I appreciated the items left in the kitchen for guests' use. The owner was very helpful via email before our stay, and the campsite Reception are friendly and helpful too. The only extra bit of information I would add is that bed linen is not provided, but can be hired from the Reception for nominal cost.

I was a bit nervous booking blind online and was a bit late remembering to pay! But the owner has been more than helpful throughout. The van is nice and we'll situated, the beds are small but I expect that in a caravan really. I'm already thinking about booking again for next year. My mom, my 2 year old son and I all had a brilliant holiday and I would recommend the van to others.

We booked the caravan last minute we were so pleased to find the site extremely well maintained and friendly and the caravan it's self was in a great private position and very peaceful, it was also one of the cleanest caravans we have stayed in I normally have to clean when we first arrive but this was the first caravan I didn't feel the need to. It was well equipped and modern. The owner was very pleasant to deal with and made it all very straightforward, I would defiantly stay again and recommend

A last minute booking at a very good price was dealt with in a very friendly and efficient manner by the owner. The caravan was even better than it seemed on the website, being perfectly clean, modern and well-equipped. The park and the location of the caravan on the park was pretty much ideal for us, with birds and squirrels visible in the trees from the caravan window! The decking and outdoors furniture made sitting outside a peaceful pleasure and we hope to return at some time in the future.

First of all, we were delighted by the last minute availability of the caravan for half-term. Having seen the photographs on the website, we could not believe our luck. The contact made with the owner was responded to very quickly and was friendliness and efficiency in itself. When booked, we received plenty of information about the caravan and how to operate the facilities upon arrival, not to mention recommendations and friendly advice for enjoying holiday hotspots in the area. this made us even more excited and welcomed. The caravan exceeded all expectations of comfort, modernity, cleanliness and facilities, not to mention the perfect location upon a friendly and peaceful site. My whole family could not stop praising the caravan or the site and have all vowed to return in future ! A huge thank you to the owners. Our only quandary now is how soon we can come back!!!
