We spent 3 nights at this pleasant site recently. The site is very conveniently situated around 15mins walk from Brixham town centre. The site is very close to the South West Coast path, which is handy for exploring!

The site is well maintained and facilities very clean, if a little on the smaller side. There are no play places on site for children. There isn't a shop on site but the Spar 10mins walk away is handy and there is a Fowlers campsite opposite which has a shop that you can access. When we checked in we didn't really get much information from the staff regarding the site.

The views were nice and the space adequate, I think the facilities would struggle if the site were full. The site is quiet and relaxed.

Really nice open field site, facilities are very clean, as previous reviewer mentioned showers are a bit of a pain to use and were a bit too hot during our stay, washing up room is also strange with large deep sinks but no draining boards so the floor and countertops end up swimming with water. Laundry room was great with 2 large washing machines and 2 huge dryers, cost approx 10 to do a weeks worth of washing which I didn't think was too bad.

A point to note if you are visiting in a motorhome is that there is no dedicated motorhome service point and only 1 tap on site that you can connect a hose to,(at the side of the main toilet block), we managed ok but it was a bit fiddly to empty our waste tanks.

There is no shop on site but you can walk 2 mins down the road to the John Fowler holiday village and use their shop. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and always stopped for a chat whenever we crossed paths.

The walk down into Brixham takes approx 20 minutes at a leisurely pace, the return trip takes a bit longer as its all uphill :(. Brixham is a lovely village with plenty of shops, pubs & places to eat, you can also catch the ferry over to Torquay for a nice day out. I would highly recommend this site and would return here if we visited this area again.

We have just returned from our first 10 day holiday at this delightful campsite.

The staff are friendly and helpful, the facilities very clean and well maintained and the pitches generously sized and well drained.

Our grass pitch was level with a hook up and situated near a water point and both sets of showers, toilets, dishwashing and other facilities.

When we first arrived the plastic cistern at the chemical disposal point was damaged and difficult to operate. I was deeply impressed the second time I needed to use it - it had been replaced with a brand new, high quality cistern!

Upton Manor is ideal if you want a quiet, beautifully maintained, non-commercial site, within easy reach of the many lovely beaches and places of interest on the Devon Riviera.

We will be only too delighted to return there next time we plan a holiday in Devon!

Having just spent the weekend here I must say that it was lovely. The ablution facilities are very clean.

My only moan is the short time the hot water dispenses in the shower (approx. 5 secs) before you have to depress the hot water button to get another 5 sec spurt.

Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, even if it was just to 'test' the recently converted transit - camper.

The ten minute walk to the beach was not found by us but the views and scenery made the walk along the hilltop extremely pleasurable. Would come again most assuredly.

My Partner and I plus 2 dogs stayed at this site for 2 nights on 21st May; after many years of none camping. We absolutely loved it!

The owner was extremely helpful on booking and rang us (as we arrived a lot later than planned due to traffic)to tell us they needed to close but told us where we needed to go etc. The campsite was well maintained and very clean our pitch was perfect. I normally 'struggle' with the shower / toilets blocks but these again were very clean and nice.

Dogs need to be kept on a lead at all times as with most sites and walked off the site which I fully agree with. The beach was only 10-15 minutes walk which dogs are allowed and there are plenty of other walks to go on nearby.

We used to walk back from Brixham via Castor Rd which was just a light hill. The site is perfectly placed if visiting with dogs there are a few pubs in Brixham that allow dogs the blue anchor being one of them. This site has restored my faith in camping and we are looking forward to returning.

Reviewer: DUDTENTERS 2 reviews from this member

This is the best campsite we have ever used, our first stop here was summer 1996, and we make sure we visit at least once a year (usually 2 or 3 times even if only for a couple of nights)

The facilities have always been spotless and the owners more than friendly, but with the improvements to the old shower block in 2009 and the newer block now completed its refurbishment the site is even better than expected.

We always get a warm welcome, the pitches for camping are where you like to a point giving you a lot of space and privacy. Although we like to 'ruff it' with minimal odds and sods, the space and layout of the electric hook up sites looks one of the best we have seen.

The location is A1, close to Brixham, just 20 mins walk, an almost private beach at St Marys little over 10 mins plus the steps, a Spar 5 mins down the road open till 10, John Fowler site over the road with a small shop offering the basics plus fresh baked bread in the morning, and if you don't want to walk the bus stop almost opposite.

The facilities on site are even better than expected, always hot water, plenty of loo's and showers, and the office will always give you help and point you in the right direction.

Recommendation is always the best form of advertising. Last year we invited our sister in law and the two kids (one 9 one 7) down to join us - never camped before! the girls had the time of their lives, running in the field, riding bike, cliff walks - two weeks after their return, they had purchased the tent and all required, booked up and asked us to join them, this Whitsun will be their 3rd visit!

The site is well maintained, and always feels safe and secure, we had no problem in letting the little ones loose around the site and the other advantage is that the owners respect the requirement for privacy and quiet, in the 14 years we have never had problems with noise or unruly groups as on other sites, by 10 or not much after its a sea of tranquillity, matching the wonderful position and facilities.

If you only visit once, I can assure you it wont be long before you will want to return.
