July 2004 Been here 2004, 2003, 2002, 2001, 2000, 1999, 1998. Excellent facilities, good touring pitches, clean toilets, showers, super entertainment team, club, bar meals, take-away, large outdoor pool + childrens pool, indoor pool, crazy golf, tennis, play park.
We have found it an excellent base and have looked at many a touring park while weve been staying at Beverley park but we have been spoilt by this brilliant touring park, yes, you do get noise while the club comes out, but it soon goes quiet. And for security they have security on the gate at night. Already booked for next year.
August 2004 We went just after the Bank holiday, from Tuesday 31st August for a couple of days only. From a tenter's point of view we found that this site, although good, was very expensive at £19.50 per night for a non serviced pitch. We did not want EHU, but wished we had asked for a pitch with EHU as all other pitches for tents appeared to be on slopes which made sleeping uncomfortable. We ended up coming home a day early as we couldn't get comfortable. Non serviced pitches should be cheaper or should at least be terraced so that they are level for that price. Also good shower blocks but very few showers in them. A good site for caravanners though.
August 2004 Well we finally got in but were placed at the back of the site in a small field below the tennis courts.
A) there needs a sign installing saying 'no ball games' as we had a lot of youths kicking the ball into the tent off the wall!
B) The bar needs to stay open later than 11pm! Everything shuts then, entertainment included - for the height of summer found this strange!
C) They kick you off by 10am...its too early!
D) The entertainment is aimed mainly at kids. I believe that after 9pm it should be for grown ups, as not everyone went with kids and each night it just got more monotonous!
Saying that the showers, facilities, shop etc were all very good. If you have kids its ideal as the whole park seems to be focused on kids. The entertainers are very hard working and didn't seem to stop. There are 2 big pools, a takeaway, games room (for kids!), a restaurent and bar, and the big entertainment room with bar. Drinks very reasonable.
All in all we enjoyed it but not sure I'd go there again unless we took the kids. Paul
July 2004 Picked this campsite because of the reviews on your site and we were not disappointed. The views from the site were breathtaking right across Torbay. We had a good sized pitch. The site was immaculate with beautiful flowers.It was very modern - we have been to some sites where the facilities have been very run down and not very clean.
The beach at Goodrington Sands is a 20 minute walk down the hill but we found a short cut through the road by the holiday lodges which made it quicker. The Paignton to Dartmouth steam railway runs along by the beach and everyone waves to the passengers as it travel backwards and forwards.
The outdoor pool was lovely and has a cafe which serves good sandwiches,paninis and coffee etc.We thought the indoor pool was small but didnt use it as the weather was so good, but there is a leisure centre with pool a short drive away.We ate in the garden bar a couple of times but get there early as it gets busy and you could have a long wait for food.
The entertainment was excellent two of the entertainers have been there for 20 years.The site is a good base for the area and there is plenty to see and do.We particularly liked Brixham.
July 2004 What can I say, we stumbled on this site quite by accident and I can say I'm glad I did. Stunning views across Torbay, excellent grounds with lots of flowers and coloured lights in the ground and water features, even the crazy golf is lit up at night.
Well set out and organised, the shower blocks were immaculate, piping hot water and plenty of it. Washing up facilities excellent. All staff were brilliant, friendly and helpful. Every member of the family was catered for including in the family room on a night. Loads of places to see and lots to do in 1 of the nicest places in Britain.
July 2004 Excellent site - but small criticisms; The pitches are too close together. It gets noisy if you're camping and have little ones who want to sleep before 10pm. Not enough showers, and be aware its a good mile walk on a hill to the beach. Indoor pool far too small. On the plus side- Excellent facilities- Outdoor pool, Cafe, Shop (not too expensive), good club house, Lovely views, Close to Paignton and Torquay, both worth a visit. Whilst here visit 'The Woodlands' excellent day out, and the Openview leisure centre at Goodrington beach- It seems expensive but you can go in and out all day and the rides are excellent. The Entertainments team on site are excellent and can't do enough for you. If Haven/Pontins etc are too rough try here. 9 out of 10.
