This is a fantastic site near to all the Torbay attractions. We found the main shower block at the bottom of the hill far better than the portacabin type that are dotted around the site. The water was piping hot at any time of day and the facilities were always spotlessly clean.

There is a good bar with a lovely balcony to sit out on that overlooks the illuminated pool.The games room is well equipped for the children and the site itself has a lot space for kids to play. Entertainment was good, three or four nights a week.

Stoke Gabriel is within walking distance with a nice old church overlooking the river and the old quaint pub is worth going in for a pint.

Our next camp in South Devon will definitely be at this site again.

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Whitehill - we would have stayed longer but they were full!

The staff are very friendly, the site is clean and had everything we needed, the pool was great too even if it was a bit cold! Plenty for the children to do from arts and crafts to nature walks, and full entertainment in the Barn from 8pm-11pm. There is so much to do in the surrounding area too, cinema, funfair, beautiful beaches, Steam Train, Harbours, Toy Museum, Paignton Zoo the list is endless and we did most of them! The only thing I could say that was a pain (but did not spoil our holiday) were the showers - they were so far away from our tent we had to drive to them, but the water was hot and they were always clean.

We would definitely return and recommend it to our friends & family :)

This was our first visit here. At first we were really impressed but as the week went on, got more disillusioned. At the beginning it didn't seem too bad, as we only appeared to be on a slight incline, but as the week went on, our tent actually started moving downwards!

The heated pool was fab, although not actually heated! The facilities as a whole were what we expected but once again disappointing. The family bar was great with a good set up apart from one thing - the DJ. It was like groundhog day as he played the same games for the kids every night - however the kids actually loved it.

Apart from one new block, the toilets are all in portakabins which were clean, but not what we expected. The new block is lovely, 4 showers in the ladies. There is a family room with a bath though which was great as we have 3 young kids. We wouldn't have been able to take them into the showers as they were extremely hot & the temperature couldn't be altered. Bar & reception staff were lovely.

Despite everything I've said, we still had a lovely holiday & the location was great for Torquay, Paignton & goodrington sands.

We visited this site the Aug bank holiday weekend.

The site was packed as would be expected. I didn't like that the washing up facilities were in the toilets, the showers were dirty and were apparently cleaned twice a day. Basic sanatation standards I found to be very low generally

The pool is outdoors and not covered at night, was cold.

The positives about the site was that the pitches were well maintained and there seemed a lot for children to do with an activities room, 2 or more parks, pool and entertainment

Overall a great site. We went with our two children and two other families- 6 children age range 2-6. The atmosphere on the site was great.

Arrived just over an hour before 3pm check in time and were taken straight to pitch. We were in Coombe meadow, right next to small playground, ideal as children could play alone and be seen at all times! Only small moan is that older children & teenagers often decided to use playground to meet between 10 & 12pm, although always obliged when we asked them to leave or quieten down. Short walk upto clubhouse/shop/pool.

Showers/Loos- Not the cleanest I have ever seen- they only seem to clean at eye level so the walls were quite grubby. The mens toilets were not as clean as the ladies, in the cleaners defence it seemed someone staying at the site had some quite disgusting habits- cleaner can not be on duty 24/7. The showers were mostly hot in the ladies, apparently my husband had a few cold ones though. Biggest complaint was that most of the showers only last 5 seconds before the button needs pressing again- understand the need to conserve water but 5 seconds much too short.

Shop/Cafe- Shop stocked all the essentials and quite a bit more- no fresh bread though. Lots of kids medicines/toys & treats. Fairly pricey but not the worst campsite shop I have seen. Cafe was OK, good breakfast- 2 full english for 7. Also small takewaway menu.

Disco- Childrens games after bingo so 8-9.30 a bit late for the very young children. Generally good music and nice atmosphere.

Pool- Very busy in hot weather but always managed to find at least one chair to put our things on. Pool is lifeguard attended during the day. Main pool slightly heated but still chilly! Toddler pool not heated at all which was a shame.

Staff were hardworking & friendly. Excellent bird of prey display on Thursday mornings and animal show on Friday mornings- kids were mesmerized. I probably would return to Whitehill and would give it 8/10.

This is a large site that caters for tents and caravans and is spread over numerous fields. We booked this site based on the amenities and location. We were travelling in a small group with no children.

We had been given a tent pitch on the top of a hill, underneath a pylon (which buzz as soon as it rained)this however wasn't a problem as we were visiting the site for a well earned weekend break and to let our hair down). The pitch was extremely windy and proved highly challenging to lit the BBQ. The Toilets were portaloo's and a little smelly. We later visited the bar which was full of kids, running back and forth between the bar and disco, not really enjoyable if you don't have kids so decided to have some drinks at the tent instead.

We made friends with a adjacent tent and sat chatting into the early hours. A chap came over to the tent around 12am and asked if we would turn our music down which we replied that we would turn it off and apologised as we hadn't thought the wind would carry the noise from the tiny speakers so far. We continued to chat and retired around 2am (it was a friday night).

Next day we went out into Torquay and had a lovely day exploring - when we returned we had a note on the tent asking us to report to reception. On route to reception we were shouted at by a member of staff to go to reception (which we were on route to), whilst in reception we were told our noise from the night before was sooo excessive we were to leave the site immediately. We were not given the opportunity to defend ourselves and as it had gone 4pm we needed to pack up quickly and find another campsite.

This site was very beautiful and had a outdoor headed pool (which we didn't get to use as asked to leave so late in the day).

This site is focused on familys and children. We were later told that there is to be NO noise after 11pm which I think is silly rule as even children cry during those hours.
