This site is owned and operated by people who know and care about camping and it shows. The pitches are large, level and well drained, with ample power available on the hookups and water standpipes conveniently located around the site. The toilets and showers are well maintained and well thought out.
It is located next to the John Fowler holiday park, which is good if you want evening entertainment or have kids who do, as there are no play facilities on the site itself. This can generate a little noise in the evenings, though not bad and the site remains very quiet at night, ensuring a good night's sleep (at lest, until the cockerel wakes up!)
It is within easy reach of Brixham, which provides local shops, a choice of pubs, a beach and picturesque harbour.
We will definitely opt to camp there again soon. Highly recommended.
Spent Easter here £70 for 7 nights brilliant! New toilet block is great, shower cubicles a bit small, but has two family rooms with shower, sink and WC.
Only problem was lack of clothes hooks which was sorted while we were there. I did suggest a wire basket fixed on the wall for your clothes and maybe a duckboard on the floor which they are looking into.
The road has been tarmacked,and drainage has been sorted.
The old toilet block is due to be refurbished soon,and also some hardstandings are planned.
The Staff are very friendly,and open to suggestions.
No children's area or shop but both are available (unofficially) over the road in South Bay
All in all this site is improving all the time, will be returning soon,
Spotless, never saw them being cleaned so perhaps the pixies did it.
No children's play area, which would have been a bonus.
Reasonably priced a week at Easter was just over £100 pounds for a very large pitch. Caravans etc one side and tents the other. Beach is just down the road, down rather a lot of steps, but a very safe beach for the kids.
If you walk down into Brixham, expect a very steep walk back. But the bus stops just over the road from the site and runs every half an hour, unfortunately last bus is 5pm. Don't know if they run any longer in the summer. A Taxi back from Brixham only cost £4.20 for three of us.
Brixham is smashing our grandson loved it, all the kids spend their time either on the Golden Hind or crabbing.
Within easy bus ride of Paington and Torquay or ferry. Ice cream is fantastic, especially with a dollop of clotted cream on top. Fish and chips in the Harbour are wonderful as are the fresh oysters.
We have just returned from a five day stay at this site and agree with previous posts that it is in a great location with easy access to St Marys Bay and Brixham.
The owners were very friendly and helpful.
The John Fowler site opposite is noisy and we were entertained with very loud Karaoke on most nights, one night we were awoken with the sound of a running fight in the lane with swearing and bottles being smashed, not nice when you have children with you.
However I do realise that this is out of the control of the campsite owners.
The toilets and showers are dated, we have stayed at sites with much better facilities for the same price. A few hooks in the showers would help.
The site does not have a shop but you can use the one in the John Fowler site opposite.
Also unless you have a pitch with electric hook up a lot of the unserviced pitches are on quite a slope.
I think the directions to the site would be quite tricky if towing a caravan as there were quite a few parked cars to negotiate.
To summarise a great location, facilities need modernising.
We would use this site again but would try and get a more level pitch and away from the John Fowler Holiday Park.
Just got back from this site, and having read the reviews last year before I booked it, I was hoping that there might have been some improvement to the criticisms before we got there. First of all the showers could do with a good cleaning and still there was no provision to hang your clothes in some of the showers, We were pitched opposite he showers/toilets next to hedge which has a road on other side and is very noisy in the morning as this road feeds a john fowler site and is only situated 50 mtrs away. My main worry is the small road that feeds this and the john fowler site is quite busy and there are no pavements so beware with your children and / or dogs,on one occasion I had to pick up my little dog quick and was forced into a bush with nettles 5foot high. The site is one mile from the harbour and is a steep climb coming back,Overall the site is good ( apart from the showers) could do with being in a different location.
Spent a week here. We asked for a secluded end pitch and they made sure we got one. Very friendly staff!
Perfect location, 10 minute walk down to the beautiful pebbly private beach (with safe swimming water, perfect for the dinghy too), although VERY steep steps down and back up! Only a mile walk into beautiful Brixham (or short bus journey if you can't cope with the steep hill walk back).
Toilet blocks are reasonable, although in need of updating. No hand dryer in one of the men's blocks. One of the ladies shower blocks could have been cleaner and there were no hooks on the back of the shower doors. Also, there were no separate shower trays, which meant sharing dirty shower water with the next person.
The camp shop (in the nearby holiday park) was very useful, but get there early if you need milk!
Do bear in mind that this site is very open and therefore can be very windy, so hammer those windbreaks in very deep!
Overall, would go again, hoping for improved shower/toilet blocks.
