There are 2 within a reasonable distance, have tried both in the past.  Higher Rew is far and away the best with good clean facilities and plenty of space 5 years ago and reported much the same now.  A fair distance away though, access by road via Malborough unless you have a tractor.  Langham (?) Farm is out beyond Batson and was pretty crummy in 1996, with prefab concrete buildings that had a distinct MoD flavour to them.

Thank you all for your comments and recommendations. Higher Rew Farm looks to be the one.

The Squires Family (who own and run Higher Rew) are Merlin and Yawl sailors !

Rwe is a good site,and probably the best around but it can be cold in the evening and is not the place to be if the sea fog hits.

Bolberry is not as good a site, but it is our choice over Rew. Bolberry is also only a mile from Hope Cove, we walk there.
