  • "Lovely place to stay."

    Owners are were easy to reach and helpful. Combe Martin is a lovely cove with good food shopping at the local shop and bars, especially The Dolphin. Only drawbacks are that the caravan site is on a steep hill but is fine if you are healthy and the mobile reception and internet on the site is virtually unusable, but down in the town it is fine and The Dolphin has excellent wifi. We had a lovely time.

  • "Ochenta is in a quiet nook of the John Fowler site."

    The site is hilly so beware! The grounds are well kept and there are good facilities and a Bar/Restaurant with stunning views. Ochenta was a perfect base for us to explore the South West Coast Path which was virtually on the doorstep. Combe Martin (the longest village England) has a wee Co-op and a great butcher/farm shop which stocked local produce. The caravan was spotless, had everything we needed and more. It was nice to have a good size fridge and freezer. At the end of the day, no dishes either as there’s a full size dishwasher. The bed was comfortable with a walk in wardrobe so plenty of room for clothes. The shower had good pressure which is always nice after a day hiking. The wrap around decking was a great area to sit out on an enjoy the sun and surrounding trees. Communication with the owners was 100%. During our stay the cafetière broke, we managed to buy a new one from Tesco (6 miles away in Ilfracombe) and were paid via BACS immediately. Overall we cannot fault this accommodation and would not hesitate to recommend.

    Tucked away in a little corner was just perfect, on arrival there was a most appreciated welcome pack waiting for us ..thank you just what we needed after a 4.5 hr drive. The village is just a short walk away too.

  • "Abi was the perfect hostess and responded to any messages straight away."

    The caravan was immaculate and had everything we needed together with a lovely welcome pack! It was tucked away from the rest of the site so very quiet and relaxing. I would highly recommend!

  • "The caravan was great, it was so well equipped and had everything we needed."

    We especially loved the spacious wardrobe. The site we were on is quiet but the facilities are good. The swimming pool was warm. The local village of Combe Martin is a short walk away with places to eat and places to get grocery shopping. We visited the sister site which is a short hilly walk, that was OK but did get very busy and had to wait an hour for food, luckily they had entertainment so my 3 and 5 year old were amused. Need to head up their about 5pm to get a table. Overall, fab caravan, great location for a young family as lots to do around. We visited the Dinosaur and wildlife park and Watermouth Castle/theme park. Both excellent and within 10 min drives. Abi, the owner, was really friendly and made sure we had all we needed.

  • "We had a lovely holiday."

    This was a very last minute booking. I was somewhat surprised to find anywhere in North Devon so late in the day. I was actually surprised and a bit anxious when I found this lovely caravan. I couldn’t understand why it was the only holiday apartment still available. What could be wrong with it I thought. Actually there was nothing wrong with it. It turns out we were the first paying guests for the new owner (Abi) and this was a new listing. How lucky were we to find this absolute gem. There were three of us. Two adults and a 14 year old. The caravan had everything that you would need and more. It’s the first van I’ve been in with a dishwasher! It was in a peaceful setting at the top of the hill. Set aside with only one other van and a house as your immediate neighbours. When you walk down the hill you will find a small clubhouse which is worth using if only for the stunning sea views. There is a beach only five minutes walk away. We used the caravan as a base as we had quite an activity filled week but honestly you won’t go far wrong if you rent this van. Also on site is a small outdoor pool. Abi left us a lovely card and some fudge and some basic essentials on arrival which was a very nice thought. (Gutted we left behind the card) Abi is a lovely host and she can not do enough for you. The only issue I would raise is this is not a suitable site for people with no car snd mobility issues as the hills up and down are very steep. Otherwise book with confidence. Sykes were very good taking the booking. It was very easy and the chap I dealt with was very helpful. Good luck and have a wonderful holiday. Stuart, Millie & Mason Budd

The property

Ochenta is a delightful caravan set in the village of Combe Martin, a popular seaside resort on the coast of Devon.

Encompassed by the beauty of the Exmoor National Park and the North Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, you can ensure that Ochenta is well-positioned for a scenic getaway.

Step into the bright and airy open-plan living space, ideally suited for spending quality time with family when you’re not out exploring the surrounding area.

Gather at the dining table to enjoy a home-cooked meal, prepared in the well-equipped kitchen, providing an electric oven and gas hob, microwave, fridge/freezer and even a dishwasher, so washing up will be a breeze!

At the other end of the property lies the bedrooms, comprised of a double and a twin, wonderfully suited to a family.

Begin each morning with a refreshing shower before stepping out onto the decking, sipping on a fresh coffee as you plan for the day ahead.

A short stroll will bring you to the centre of Combe Martin, where you will be greeted by a good selection of shops where you can pick up some last-minute items to prepare a tasty picnic to bring out with you, as well as some traditional pubs serving food, ideal if you fancy a night off cooking.

During the warmer months, spend an afternoon on Combe Martin beaches, perfect for sunbathing and sandcastle building, or get involved in an abundance of watersporting opportunities; or if you’re looking for a quieter place, Wild Pear Beach is the perfect choice.

If you’re seeking a little more adventure, visit the Hangman cliffs where hikers can explore this vast and striking landscape with many views across the coast, with trails leading further into the Exmoor National Park.

Once those are completed, the coastal towns of IIfracombe and Lynton are within easy reach and offer a wide range of attractions to suit all ages and tastes.

Ochenta is a heart-warming escape, with easy access to some of Devon’s finest sights.
