Stayed on this campsite for ten nights, It looked really nice on the website and also in the brochure they sent in the post. We arrived on the Saturday at reception, the staff on the whole were very friendly and helpful and we were taken to our pitch which was reasonably sized!

After setting everything up we had a look around the site, the toilet/shower blocks were clean but a bit grubby/outdated and in the ladies/gents there were only 3 shower cubicles between a rough guess of about 60 tents/folding campers - and not every caravan has a shower inside!

Later on we got changed and went up to the club and found it full, the nearest place for a drink is Dawlish warren which on the website states a short downhill walk which in reality is more like half an hour and longer coming back as its all uphill! Staying with the club we eventually got a table on the third night, it was 2.80 for a pint of bitter, in our party there were 3 adults and 4 children and it was nearly 20 a round! The entertainment was good though and apart from the prices we had a good night.

One of the things that made me choose this site was the indoor swimming pool which looked good in the brochure and thought it would be good for the kids if it rained. When I saw the indoor swimming pool I laughed, it was so small I could have almost jumped across it! I didnt see the outdoor pool but the kids went up and said it was very dirty and didnt want to go in. My next whinge only applies to some people - depending where you are pitched from very early in the morning you are woken constantly by the noise of wagons starting up and revving their engines, correct me if i'm wrong but there must be a haulage yard or something similar next door and it did get annoying day after day.

One plus point was the site shop which was very well stocked, the people very friendly and it was very reasonably priced!

Last but not least - on our final night as the club finished the occupants of the next tent decided to bring back some of the entertainments staff for a drink. This started about 12.15 and went on till 1.45 am they were first asked by the warden to keep the noise down and agreed 5 minutes later the noise returned, they were asked by my mum to be quiet half an hour later they agreed and 5 minutes later the noise returned. Both me and my mum after listening to this for nearly an hour and a half had listened to enough of who was sleeping with who/sexuality of him/her and ended up having a slanging match with both the occupants of the tent and the entertainments staff who should have known better!! On our departure my mum made a complaint to the owner of the site who promised to take action and would let her know what the outcome was - she still hasnt heard from him after nearly a week!

This place is marvelous, friendly atmosphere, great facilities (the toiets / showers / washng up / waste dump were the best I have seen.

Great for the family that has kids or maybe the older couple who want a "traditional British seaside" type of holiday

I liked the seasidy shops, and the beach is only just down the road, once there there is a green & shops & a small amusement park that will keep kids entertained for ages. Dad too if he likes go kart racing!

Visited this site the week before the Bank Holiday. I have to say this is a great little site, although very busy, not many problems at all.

Pitch Size: OK, could do with being slightly bigger to enable space for car!

Toilets / Showers: These were kept clean as often as possible, plenty of hot water, never had to queue for shower, none of my clothes got wet.

Club House: Small but OK, entertainment good, bar staff friendly, prices not too bad depending on what you are used to paying.

Noise: Not too bad, they ask people to keep to a low level after 10.00pm and will not tolerate noise after Midnight, which I think is a good idea.

All in all we had a great time, meet loads of new people, hardly saw the kids, would go again.

Just got back from a fantastic week in Dawlish Warren on this brillant campsite. I and my family went with 3 other families with children ranging from 4 to 14 and we all had a great time. The park was spotless all the time, the toilets and showers were always clean and site maintenance was very good. The onsite shop was well stocked and prices were competetive. The peppermint club had something to do for the children and the adults and was well set out, with a very good, supervised children's room. The site was patrolled at night by security and there is a 12o'clock noise policy that they encourage you to stick to. Will visit this campsite again and would recommend it to friends and family.

Hi, just got back from Dawlish and stayed at peppermint park. the site it self is great. good facilities and friendly staff. It was very very busy, as it was carnival week so was to be expected.

Our pitch was a good size but next to the path to and from the club and it was noisy late at night. The ground was VERY hard had to send out for more tent pegs. The kids (8 and 5) had a lovely time, the pool was crowded as it was hot and sunny. Would go again but not in the main weeks and not in carnival week.

The showers were ok, everything you took in to the cubicle got wet, and there was queues. Still had a lovely holiday and the sun shone.

Entertainment team new lot of people this yaer except for laura back for second year the whole team was great with all the kids great shows every night a must for everyone try the sunday carvey adults 5.95 children under 14 yrs 3.00 or a bowl for tiny chrildren for a 1.00 and baby food for free you can't beat the price for a great meal for all the family.
Can't wait till August bank holiday when we go back.
