A pleasant well organised site, if not a little too organised for us, no cycling on site and you have to be packed up and of site early morning on day of departure even when its not bus, so unless you pay another nights fee you only get a Saturday if you go for a weekend, I don't mind paying extra to stay on, but thought a full nights fee was excessive. The site is next to a busy road with traffic noise though you do get used to it. The toilets are dated but spotless with plenty of free hot water. They do not have a shop just a few bits in reception so make sure you take everything you need. The children's play area was lovely and well kept as was all areas of the site, nicely mowed grass. The donkey santuary was a real treat with a pleasant walk from the site to it.

What a gem this site is. We stayed on Beech Grove which is just over the way from the other site. Our pitch was level and we were left with enough space by the tent to park the car and set up quite a large badminton net! Our pitch overlooked the golf course which my husband and son played a round - good value for money. Our first couple of days there gave us some pretty heavy rain and the field did become a little muddy but then I would imagine this happened elsewhere. Given the weather the toilet/shower block remained very clean at all times which is a feather in the cap of the lady and gent (I don't know their names)who kept them that way. The laundry block housed two washers and two dryers - £2.40 for a wash and 50p for a 21 minute dry (incase anyone's interested!). Clothes came out cleaner than others I've used. On our last night we ordered a Chinese takeaway from 'Yummy's' which was delivered to the car park at the top of the site, £1.50 delivery charge. We were a bit apprehensive about what we were going to get but I can say that the food was delicious and we would recommend. The only negative I can give is that the gravel path which runs around the site needs to be extended to the toilet/shower block. I think this may make the wardens jobs a little easier keeping the block clean in bad weather and campers feet dry! I would highly recommend this site.

Fantastic Site! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Showers and Toilets were always spotlessly clean. Pitches were flat and spacious. Great play area for the children. Short drive to Sidford for local Spar so a shop on site would be a bonus. Great pub food in Sidford also a good fish and chip shop. Lots to do in area: Donkey Sanctuary only a short walk away. Beer, Branscombe and Lyme Regis only a short drive. Small amount of noise from road but that didn't put us off. Will definitely return here next year!

We have just come back from an incredible weekend at Oakdown, in no small part due to this wonderful site.

The site owners were helpful and readily available, yet unobtrusive. The amenities block was always spotlessly clean, and there was hot water at all times.

The lack of a club/bar etc meant that it was exceptionally quiet at night, great for families with smaller children or those wanting the old-fashioned way of camping.

There is some road noise, but as with other posters, we soon screened it out.

We were in Beech Grove, which has a lovely unspoiled feel to it, please keep it that way!

Our children loved the paly area, and the grassy areas available for games etc. We also made much use of the golf, which was great value for money. We understand that there is to be an extension to the golf shop for a small site shop, which would be very welcome, as milk and bread are a short drive away.

We stayed at this site in Late May 2009 for three nights. We ended up on the new site next to the golf course.

Upon arrival we were shown our pitch by the site staff, the pitches on this side are large and flat, the toilets / showers are new and very clean and tidy. This area has a new play area for kids.

The road around this site is now gravelled so you should not have any trouble with mud in bad weather (we had lovely weather for our stay).

The golf shop is also a café serving coffees. The golf (pitch and put) is also good value and fun, even for us non golf players.

We had a lovely time; the kids loved the play area and spent most of their time there. We would stay again.

The site is very well run and the staff are very friendly and helpful and they added to the enjoyment, nothing was too much trouble.

This is a fabulous site in a lovely position just outside Sidmouth. The facilities are excellent and spotless and the staff very friendly. It's next to the Donkey Sanctuary and we spent a couple of pleasant evenings walking round and patting the donkeys still out in the fields. There is a nice children's playground and even an internet room if you can't bear to be parted from your emails.

There isn't really a pub within walking distance but there was plenty of room to park motorhomes in the coach / long stay car park in Sidmouth opposite the Connaught Gardens, a few minutes walk into town. I believe there is a bus service into town from the main road but we didn't use it.

The only down side is the closeness of some parts of the site to the main road but that said it didn't keep us awake at night and we are light sleepers.

Nice one Oakdown. We will be back!
