Site is a little tricky to get too, but I'm sure that's because this was only the second time I had towed and we own a twin axle.

On arrival was greeted by the owners who were very friendly, was taken to our pitch which was very spacious and divided into 2's by fencing.

The pitches were well kept and laid out which made it very easy to manoeuvre. Site was quiet and plenty of space for children to play.

Toilet/shower blocks were immaculate with plenty of hot water and water disposal facilities were easy to use.

Disposable BBQ's are not permitted but the owners has number of small free standing BBQ's that you can use to stand your disposable ones on which was a pleasant and welcomed change, better than putting them on bricks.

The only negative thing we experienced was our own doing, the area had switched to Digital the week before which we were unprepared for so no TV for the week, but that taught us a lesson to check in future.

The nearest beach is a short walk away, but a long climb down to the beach which may not be suitable for some, but just a short drive brings many other beaches within reach.

Brixham town is pleasant although not very family orientated in the evenings with many Restaurants displaying no children after 7pm in their windows. Paignton Zoo is close too which is an excellent day out for the whole family although wear good shoes cos it's quite spaced out.

So there you have it.Competitively priced, very friendly atmosphere, great facilities, central to many attractions. We will definitely be booking again.

Had a great weeks camping here at the beginning of July, stayed on the bottom field with plenty of room for our 2 year old to run around, surprised it wasn't busier over the weekend. Good location near Brixham at the top of the hill over looking the harbor/ town. We managed the hill ok with two kids in a buggy but there's also a bus service to the static caravan opposite the entrance.

Nice dog friendly beach about 1/2 mile down the lane also leading to the coast path round to Brixham past the old forts, worth a walk.

Good clean toilets/ shower blocks & nice street lighting at night.

No shop on site but there's a Spar shop on the way back to the campsite from town and Tesco's, Somerfield's etc in town.

Would recommend it to anyone.

An excellent camp site - just right for us. No hi de hi, no shops or clubroom. Just what we were looking for.

Very close to the beautiful harbour of Brixham - buses run from the site if you don't want to take your car

Beautifully maintained site and helpful staff. We hope to be back next year

We are due to return to this campsite soon for our 4th stay in the last three years, which clearly indicates our satisfaction.

The website gives all the facts you need to know but is unable to demonstrate just how friendly the welcome will be on your arrival and for the duration of your stay.I liken it to staying with friends but making a contribution to the housekeeping!

We have never been aware of any noise or disturbance from the nearby holiday Park, although to be fair, our pitches have always been on the far side from it. The size of the individual pitches are much more generous than on many other sites (but don't tell the owners). Electric hookups, where requested, and water taps are conveniently placed.

The location of Upton Manor is ideal with both the coastal path and town centre just a few minutes walk away. We've never seen the need to use buses or taxis to and from Brixham as the hill is not too steep and anyway, what's the rush? If you don't mind it being unheated, there is magnificent swimming area just eight minutes away - it's called St Mary's bay.

After booking, a confirmation pack will arrive which includes good maps / plans and perfect instructions for finding the location and entrance. Forget your satnavs, you will have all you need to get to within 10 metres of the door to reception which seems to be open from about 08:00 till very dark.

Any negative comments? Well the shower blocks don't have gold-plated fittings, any shoes or trainers left outside are not cleaned and returned pristine by morning and no milk is delivered to your door.

To sum up, try this site and I'm sure you will enjoy it.

This is a nice site if your looking to relax and chill out.

The toilet block is very clean and always had hot water, my wife and children used the family shower room of which there are two and were more than impressed. The only down side is no site shop but every cloud has a silver lining I never had to keep giving the children 1 for sweets and crisps.

No problems with the power and plenty of stand pipe's for water around the site. This really is a nice friendly site and close to the centre of brixham, will return again if down in Devon again.

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.
