Reviewer: Vixen123 6 reviews from this member

My family and I stayed at this site week commencing 9 August 2008. We arrived at the site in torrential rain and heavy winds and had to pitch our tent in this rain. (We also left the site a week late and had to pack the tent up in exactly the same weather!) We were on the 'new part' which is basically a field with no tarmac road through it and with all the heavy rain they had there, there was a mud track around the field which we had to continually walk through to get to the toilet block. They cannot be blamed for the weather, but I do think if they want to continue using this field for this purpose they really need to act to get it so that it is suitable for the purpose, ie lay tarmac or concrete for a roadway. We could not park our car next to our tent it had to remain at the very top of the field.There were caravans and cars actually being towed off the site by a tractor.
This was the only negative thing I can say. Overall if the weather was better the site would be an excellent standard. The toilets, showers and laundry room were all kept clean constantly by the onsite wardens. I must say they work extremely hard.

Our children were always at the play area and although not very big did not seem to get bored there. They did not want to leave and wanted to stay another week camping.

The area itself was great with plenty to do, although we only visited beaches at Sidmouth, Beer, Branscombe, Seaton, Lyme Regis and Exmouth. The majority of those are pebbly but Lyme Regis and Exmouth are Sandy.

We are planning our next holiday and will definitely revisit this site at some time in the future. The experience of the weather has not put us off in any way.

Our second visit to this site in 12 months, this time with our own caravan.

The staff on site are all very helpful and friendly.

The site is very pretty and well laid out. The pitches are nice and spacious so you don't feel on top of your neighbour.

We had a super service pitch with it's own fresh water supply and grey water drainage direct to and from our van.

The main toilet block is clean and tidy but could you with revamping to bring it bang up to date. This block also houses washing up stations, ironing board, iron, baby changing and washers and dryers.

The reception is small and only stocks some of the more basic day to day items.

There is also a internet cafe with is pay per use type and is very reasonable.

Directly across the road there is a nine hole approach golf course with is immaculate. There is also a small coffee house here and it's nice to sit outside during the summer months with a cappuccino.

Overall this is a lovely park which services as a great base to visit east Devon and Dorset.

Stayed here twice now at easter 07 and 08. Its a lovely site with very clean facilites and very friendly helpful staff. Showers are warm and kept very clean. Unfortunately no real shop just a couple of things for sale in reception area. Has pitch and putt golf course attached which is good for a laugh.

One slight disapointment was the power kept blowing this easter, this was a park problem. I would assume due to early easter (everyone using heating) and a full campsite that the site didnt have enough power.

Playground looks good for kids but thats an assumption as we dont have them. If you are looking for a site near town this isnt it you will need to drive to get to any shops pubs etc. Site is also next to busy road the second year we backed onto road it didnt bother us but may bother some.

This site has a dog walking trail to the donkey sanctuary which is well worth a visit. 5 minute walk to bottom fields of sanctuary 15-20 minute walk to main sanctuary.

This site has won awards and you will be able to see why. Would recommend

Just returned after spending 2 nights here. Very friendly staff (& other campers!) Spotlessly clean & warm which was a blessing as the whole area was shrouded in fog when it wasn't raining or blowing a hooley! The bus stop is not far away & coming back from Seaton(in the rain) the driver dropped me at the site. Will certainly return when I can be sure the weather will let me walk the coast path.

We have just returned from a weekend at Oakdown, which we enjoyed immensely.

We were personally shown to our pitch and were shown all the key facilities en route - ie showers, washing up, playground,etc. The showers, toilets and washing up area were spotlessly clean, warm and more than adequate. I liked the fact that the radio was always on. There was a free hairdryer in the ladies which was great, however no points to plug your own in, so there could have been a queue at busy times.

The playpark was fantastic and there was also lots of room to play on the camping fields themselves. Pitches were spacious and mostly flat. Some had picnic benches. There is a path from the site to the Donkey Sanctuary (bit far for little legs though) or it's a 2 minute drive. Well worth a visit.

Sidmouth, Beer and Branscombe are beautiful but traffic would be difficult in high season in the latter two. The Masons Arms in Branscombe serves lovely food - a bit pricey for a pub but well worth it - especially the haddock and chips if you are very hungry!

Overall, we have only praise for the site - it's easy to see why it has won so many awards. One slight down side - it's next to a main road which doesn't seem too busy but seems to attract the odd boy racer. Take earplugs if traffic noise bothers you. That said, we were close to the road and it didn't spoil a wonderful stay.

Myself and my family have stayed here every year for the last 4 years. It is a lovely site, with fantastic amenities which are kept very clean. There are plenty of showers, vanity cubicles and 2 bathrooms with a shower bath and toilet. These are ideal for families. There is also a unisex shower room.

They have washing up areas inside the amenities block, along with 2 wasing machines and tumble dryers and a spin dryer. Washing lines are available for use outside.

The playground is well kept, and safe for kids, and a small games room for the older ones.

The grounds are very well kept, split into areas. They are large enough to feel part of a community, but small enough to keep your holiday personal and private.

Opposite the site is the donkey sanctuary, which offers lovely walks, and Sidmouth is just a short drive. Lyme Regis is also close.

In all the years that we have stayed, we have experienced nothing but a first class service, excellent facilities and like minded respectful fellow campers.

They offer electric hook up, and drainage, hard standing and grass stands as well as tent pitches.

Storage is also available.
