At first I was not impressed as I thought very cramped site and outdated shower blocks, But once settled in I noticed that although the shower blocks need up dating they were very clean and tidy day or night and always had hot water with good pressure.

We were lucky and had a level pitch, water points and convenient points but at first were well hidden.

Fantastic children's/adults entertainment which seemed to be done on a budget! This is not a negative comment as it really was good.

I was annoyed that children were not allowed in the main bar after 7.30 I mean after all this is a family site!

If you are going to this site with a caravan be careful as the road leading to the park is very narrow in places.

I would definitely stop at this site again.

Our group had 4 large tents with electric hook up, a total of 17 people ages ranging from 54years to 6years. We pitched on Sweet Hills and were right at the top of the hill against the hedges. It was raining when we arrived and continued to rain throughout the most of the two weeks we were there, we also had some high winds, we had 4 sunny days (Goodrington sands is lovely on a nice day - lake and beach this is also where the waterpark is - not as big as those abroad but still a fun day out).
The campsite facilities were good, shop was not too expensive and well stocked, the bar was comfortable and had decent entertainment. There was a kids room with pool table, and entertainment (disco). A good size pool with lifeguard (kids still went in the pool when it rained!), the laundry was well used because of the rain and the mud that it caused, they have free ironing facilities.
The toilets on sweet hill were portacabins with limited room for washing etc and at times were a bit smelly and very muddy (because of the amount of rain we had). We used the showers behind reception which were clean and had plenty of hot water.
The camp was well placed and within easy reach of many of Devon / Torquays attractions, we visited Brixham, Dawlish Warren, Tighemouth (try the ferry and visit smugglers cave / cove),Totnes, Newton Abbot and many other lovely villages and towns.
The camp staff were friendly, there were a few noisy campers (I guess that could be said of us too at times). Morrisons was very close by with a Lidl and other shops in Paignton. All in all we loved this campsite and have vowed to return again - in fact we have all just booked caravans for next easter (same group)as it worked out cheaper than camping at this time of the year.
We will camp here again and hope the weather is kinder to us next time.

Booked early but given a pitch at the bottom of a hill with a dip. It rained all of our first day & by 6pm the pitch had become a pond. They put us in a caravan on another site for 2 nights (charged £20) then we were able to move to a higher pitch near the pool and pub. There were several families sent to the caravan park.

Every evening often past 12.30 the noise and language from drunks was terrible. No staff ever asked people to keep their noise down or got them to move on. Some evenings well after 11 o’clock there were over 30 people hanging around the pool area yelling at each other. Having complained to no effect we planned to come home but our children got very upset so we stayed.

There is one block with decent toilet facilities at the very far end of the site. The others are in need of an overhaul.

The pool was very cold.

The takeaway was a reasonable price and the food good.

Fantastic site, we pitched in Sweethill, We stayed for 5 nights and my girls cried all the way home ,they didn't want to leave. Can't find fault with this site at all, even thought we had torrential rain 12 hours solid one night ,yes it was muddy next day down in the valley but it wasn't too bad at the top.

Showers/toilets were very clean and spacious. Shop,bar, restaurant was great, 4 pint pitchers very good price ,drank more that we normally would! Definitely going to return to this site next year.

Upon arrival we were shown to our pitch and shown where the toilet and shower blocks where.

The campsite is split up into parts, Caravans and motor-homes where to the bottom of the hill on the flat surface hard standings near to the toilet and shower blocks, whilst the tents, trailer tents and folding campers where to the top of the hill on the slopes with only portacabin style toilets near-by with the showers being a walk away down a steep grassy hill, for which my wife decided to walk the long way round to get to them by the road when it had been raining as she didn't want to slip and fall whilst being pregnant.

There where 2 main toilet/shower blocks, one had aged a bit and looked a bit grubby, whilst the other looked newly built and a lot cleaner and is well worth the extra walk to get to it as its a bit further down past the first block. The shower was at a good temperature and had a good pressure and really clean compared to the other block.

The pitch itself was on the slope and luckily for us we were in a folding camper and could level ourselves up, feeling a bit sorry for all the tents around us on the slope. Even though the awning was on the slope we coped quite well.

One of the main problems we found during our stay was the gusts of winds on the hill/slope which could get quite forceful, and if things ain't pegged down properly, could easily lift them up, as like what happened to a group of campers next to us, which had all there cooking equipment under a gazebo, which lifted up and put all there cooking equipment on the floor and pulling the pipe off the gas bottle leaving the gas to leak out. Luckily, as I was just popping back to our camper, as we were sat at the pool on this particular day, I noticed that the gazebo had been upturned, but I could smell the gas so I went over and shut the gas valve off.

The pool was fairly warm for this time of year but was a bit over crowded. The night time entertainment was good and there was plenty for the kids to do. There was a takeaway on site and a convenient shop.

One of the main things I did like about the place was that there was a lot to do for days out, like we went to the model village in torquay, Kent caverns in Torquay, the Pirates bay crazy golf in Paignton, spent some time on the beech and crab fishing on the harbour in Paignton. But there is also a lot more than that to do around the area like a steam train from Paignton to Dartmouth which I wish we had the time to do, the zoo is close by and there was also a sea life center in Torquay, plus lots more.

Booked this site late 2007 after passing the site from a previous holiday and thinking what a fantastic site, which it is, the facilities are very good, and are regularly cleaned, the bar food was very tasty although a tad pricey!

Having arrived we were quickly directed by a gentleman in a golf buggy to our site and told to stay within our squared off pitch, which was level(thank goodness)-compared to some of the pitches we did see, especially the ones at the top of the hill!(its best to book early if you can and request your pitch - if you can get a plan the area around no 21 is very flat)

Just a note though if you want to wash your pots and BBQ with your partner, you will have to carry them up to the top near the pool as the bottom facilities do not cater for mixed couples to wash their pots together!(hopefully some more campers might make them aware of this!)

This site is quite noisy on the night, so please be aware, we were on several nights disturbed by holidaymakers leaving the site pub at 12pm (understandably!- as they provided entertainment on several nights)but there were also some unconsiderate campers opposite drinking and arguing until 5am athough there were several people shouting to ask them to be quiet, even the security staff asked them to be quiet(but to no avail!) So we had a gruelling journey back up north very tired and very glad to get away from those opposite oh and the rain!
