Reviewer: Leannebevan 4 reviews from this member

This has to be one of the friendliest sites we have ever been to. Nothing is too much trouble for the sites owners/wardens.

The toilet and shower facilities were always clean. The launderette not only had machines that included the powder and fabric conditioner in the price but if like me you only want to rinse out a few items by hand the is a rinse and spin cycle which was very handy.

The washing up area had washing up bowls and drainers for use along with a microwave (payable) and a freezer for freezing your blocks. Great use if you are a tent camper.

Although we don't have young children we went for a walk and looked at the play area and there were a great range of play equipment for different ages. There is also a tennis court I believe you can book.

The shop has everything you need and you can pre-order you paper, milk, bread etc.

On the day of the royal wedding the owner held a little drinks reception which bought people together and which I thought was a lovely gesture.

A site well worth a visit. Thank you for a lovely time.

Had a fantastic 2 weeks here. Stayed in the orchard where the pitches were spacious but not perfectly flat but nothing major. The children had a great time playing in front of the tent & we felt it was safe.

Toilets, shower block,laundry, wash up areas were spotless. Toilets & showers had fresh flowers & radio 2 playing. Wash up area also had a freezer to freeze your own ice blocks(free of charge). Outside here was a herb garden to help yourself to. The washing machines were 3.60 & included persil & comfort.

The grounds were kept very tidy & the staff were so friendly.

At the shop ordering the croissants is a definite must.

Outside the site the two mile inn pub does great food & not too expensive. Would recommend booking as it gets quite busy.

I would highly recommend this site

Stayed at Dornafield for 11 nights on Butter Meadow. This is caravan luxury you cant get better than this,the amount of repeat visitors says it all.

From the moment we arrived at reception we were warmly welcomed,the son of the family checked us in what a charming man ! couldn't do enough for us.The Butter meadow site is lovely,really well laid out spacious pitches with water,waste and rubbish disposal on the pitch.The shower/toilet block was immaculate ( they have won awards !)piped music,hot water,quilted toilet paper.

The wardens are constantly working maintaining the site every where is immaculate.

Buttermeadow has the best dog walk 2 big fields with a track mown through so you don't get your feet wet in long grass ( how thoughtful ! )They even provide doggy poo bags at the gate to the field in case you forget yours.Our dog loved meeting all the different dogs around.

Lots to do and visit in the local area, Asda is close by in Newton Abott,pub at end of the road.It

Was our first visit to Devon and we will be back.

A perfect 5 star site well worth visiting.

Very helpful and friendly staff always able to help and visible on the site if there was a problem. There were wardens for each section of the site

Large well equipped pitches no fuss about what goes where. Hard standing area was clean.

Well maintained and beautiful grounds

Toilet blocks immaculate and plentiful also kitchen and laundry where clean.

Great playpark for kids inc older kids

Nice quiet location outside of main town

Good sized dog walking fields

When it rained hard standing remained dry and grass areas were not water logged

Small country road for access with touring but as people where aware not to much of a problem

Kids did not seem to be running around at 7am which was perfect for us who like a lie in

Really enjoyed this holiday very relaxing and friendly

This site and the facilities are great, especially if you have children. Baby facilities are really good.

The downside for us is the pitches are very tight if you have a twin axle caravan like us. Getting onto the pitch is tight as cars are parked at the end of pitches making turning tight. Getting out of the site there is a narrow lane which is walled which at one section is very tight and then access to the main road is down a narrow lane. I think the wardens were bringing caravans to pitches with their small tractor if too tight!

Again if you have older kids the site facilities are great. For us with a baby at times in the evening it was noisy - kids coming down past the caravan past 9pm on their bikes and playing ball. Girls sitting outside the toilet block so you have to step over them!

Would I stay here again - no as it's too tight with a twin axle. If we changed caravans then yes but only when our daughter is older and we don't need to get her to sleep at 8pm!

At the chance of repeating what has already been said about this site, it is fantastic. Top notch facilities, very clean and spacious with great showers - although the press button variety they stayed on for a long time. Washing up area was always left clean by the other campers, again with plenty of space and hot water.

We stayed on an EHU pitch in the Orchard. Plenty of room for our large family tent, but some of the other pitches are a little small and we'd have struggled to pitch on them, but we had arranged for a larger pitch when booking.

Campsite shop contains a good stock of food, camping materials and other products, reasonably priced too. Croissants, bread and newspapers are available, but have to be pre-ordered the day before. (The croissants come recommended).

We ate out in a local pub, The Monks Retreat, had a fantastic mixed grill and some local cider poured straight from the barrel. OH and DD were well looked after with their meals too.

So much to do in the local area, especially if you don't mind travelling up to an hour in the car. We've booked another week next year already as there is still so much to do in the area that we didn't get round to doing in the week just gone. Paignton Zoo recommended. Round Robin boat / bus / steam trip was fun - although it was just a standard bus that stopped to pick up other fare paying passengers rather than the open topped bus used on the flyer. The National Trust has many places to visit locally, we managed to visit two houses. Local beaches are mainly shingle. 'Blackpool Sands' is a shingle beach - felt a bit conned after paying 6 to park!

To conclude, the staff on this site are both friendly and helpful. The facilities are outstanding. All the campers we spoke to felt the same way, we made many good friends, who we'll be seeing next year as several of them have already booked for 2011, us included. (Don't know of a better way to recommend a site, other than to say we re-booked whilst stopping there).
