Visited Whitehill for 2 nights in September. What a superb site. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, gave us a map and marked out all of the water points, showers and toilets for us. Not too sure what other reviewers mean that the showers were in portacabins as we saw none of these. Very new shower block in the tourers area, and they are superb. Always clean, free, long and hot.The other showers did need a bit of updating.

Very friendly bar, tad over priced but good beer and atmosphere. Didn't use the pool so I couldn't comment on that.

Close to all amenities and Paignton (zoo is fab), sainsburys is just down the road, yet you feel as though you are in the middle of the countryside.

Lots of playgrounds for kids and a nature trail around the park.

Downsides however are the fact that they leave all lights on around the whole campsite all night, so you don't even need a light in your tent. Also, the pitch we had was on a slope, which was rather annoying. But I cant really complain as we got it for 1 a night through the Sun.

All in all a fab site, close to Torquay and Paignton, with excellent facilities.

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.
