Excellent Park. Showers were hot any time of day and very clean. Very well maintained site. Had a problem with the electric hook up when we first arrived but staff were very helpful and cheerful and soon sorted it out for us. Club House seemed a bit scruffy and the toilets weren't that good but overall this was a very good campsite, I will definitely go back there again.

Expected it to be busy but you could not park your car next to your tent but on a small road thus leading to double parking.
The playground was at the top of a hill so steep that even the grown ups struggled to get up/down.
However, great for tiring the children out! Playground itself was ok.
Toilets/Showers need updating and even though site was very busy there was plenty of hot water.
Swimming pool was good 15 minutes walk with the children and was average.
Reception, you needed a bike to get to it and the beach is not 680 metres from the site.
We didnt use the beach at Dawlish as found Exmouth to be better but if you dont want to drive the twenty minutes etc then it would take you about 30-40 mins to walk.
Pitches were marked and you were shown and told to park in between the white lines??? What lines and how come large caravans complete with extensive awnings etc seemed to take precidence.
We could see into next door very clearly and thought this must be against fire regs.
Would we go again--NO.

Stayed here in August 2006 with OH and two girls aged 6 and 4.
Whilst you expect everywhere to be busy during the holidays, I think we had the better pitch.
The pitches are very very close together and no room to park your car except on the minute road that therefore led to double parking, so you were stuck if another car tried to get past.
The playground whilst central to the site was at the top of a very steep hill and felt that this was some what dangerous as little ones kept on falling down all the time, even when walking. Having said that it did exhaust them out.
We generally felt very packed in and I was sure this was against fire regs.
Toilets / showers were ok with hot water.Didn't have to queue but did get up early to get a shower most mornings.
Shop very very basic indeed. The beach is not 680 metres and takes good 20 minutes walk. Nice little bakers on the main road stocked with fresh bread etc. We only used site for base but each night we returned it felt more like a game of sardines. The caravans seemed to get the bigger pitches and the one opposite us had HUGE caravan with awning, three tables 4 windbreaks and a BBQ Jamie Oliver would be proud of. It made us giggle because each morning she would get her hoover out and begin hoovering!
The staff were pleasant and did show you the the pitch but then had the nerve to ask you to pitch between the lines of which there weren't any.
Would we go back No thank you.

Me and my family stayed at golden sands last week and we stayed in a chalet. We came here last year as-well we had a brilliant time and we have decided that we would be going again next year. The entertainment was brilliant, from reading all the other reviews i found that people thought that the music from the club in the evenings was very loud but staying at the club from when it opened to when it closed we did not notice the noise and also are chalet was not right next to the club.
When we got there the chalet was very clean and unlike the caravans the shower was really nice and warm. We only had one problem and that was the cooker, we had to put things in the oven about 4 hours before it was time for tea. So most nights we ate out at the club.
Also I found that there was not an awful lot of things to do in the day for the kids. Also all the kids stuff in the clubs are based on about around the age of 5-10 but with us having kids at the age of 12 and 13 there was nothing for them to do. Everything in the club was for adults or younger children but they still had a great time.
I would recommend this park to everyone cause it is great for all the family.

Lovely site! The toilet blocks are immaculate at all times of the day and night! The shop is well stocked and the staff are friendly and basically really nice people! Within walking distance of the gorgeous beach of Dawlish warren and you can walk along the seafront into the town of Dawlish which has all the shops you would need! Most of the pitches are on a small slope but get there early or book and you can get a flat pitch! Quite reasonably priced and great value for money!

We have just come home from spending a night at Peppermint Park - the camp site was very nice and well looked after - we were initially allocated a pitch that was practically "on top" of the next - so we asked for an alternative - which we were given in the "Casual Camping" area - a bit of a slope - but there were quite a few flat areas.
All of the staff at the park were very helpful and really friendly - the club was definitely not what I would call "child friendly" and was quite smokey - and if there was a play area I could not find it!  The pool was lovely - lifeguards were also on duty.  The toilets and shower facilities were also very good.  The field that we were staying in was quite noisy throughout the evening into the small hours with people coming back to tents etc - not ideal if you have small children already sleeping. 
The site boasts that it is only 680 yds from the beach - maybe as the crow flies - but in reality is a 10 minute walk - and quite disapointing as it is mainly pebble and shingle - I would recommend travelling  to the beach in Exmouth.
In all I would say the camp site was nice and served it's purpose but was quite pricey at £27 for one night (high season) - there are cheaper sites around with comparable facilities.  Would I go there again?  Probably not.
