We had a fantastic visit to our favourite campsite again this year. Very friendly and warm welcome from the staff. Even more features than our last stay including a refurbished shower block and ice block facilities.(Main block due for refurbishment 2010, although facilities are excellent for a campsite already, we had all we needed).

Small shop across the road for all your essentials that allowed us to use very kindly.

Brixham such a beautiful fishing town with an amazing history and gorgeous scenery (and a resident seal that we very luckily got to see 3 times!). Sharkham point has the most fabulous views and a lovely part of the coastal path where we got to see 2 schools of dolphins swimming around the bay!

We loved every minute of our 2 week stay and will be back every year without fail.

AB FAB! this site is brilliant! Washrooms and WC's always clean, however did nearly break my neck in the washing up room due to wet floors, but that is other people spilling all over!

There is a freezer packing freezing service and the owners are always around to tell you about the area etc.

Unfortunately we caught the back end of hurricane Bill whilst we were there and had to cut our stay short due to tent damage, but Jenny has very kindly given us 3 days to use next year - excellent customer service!

Little beach is only 5 mins walk (if you find the cut through!) from the site and is brilliant and the harbour and shops are only 1 mile downhill from the site - loads of other stuff to see in the area.

Well worth braving the M5 traffic for this site and would recommend to everyone - for lovely family hol.

I would like to have seen a little park area for the children - to get them out of our hair whilst we get tea ready or ready for a day out!

Am very excited about going back next year - avoiding random weather tho this time!

•The location is excellent – 20 min walk into Brixham with 7 & 5 yr old. Slightly longer back due to the big hill!

•Really big pitches – caravan, awning & 2 cars easily accommodated and still room for table, chairs and blanket for kids to play on

•Well sheltered considering it’s position so close to the coast

•All the facilities are spotless and everything’s in working order (toilets, showers, washing machines, etc)

•Family washrooms with shower, sink & toilet

•Site is very well kept (grass was cut 3 or 4 times in the 2 weeks we were there)

•15 min walk to beach at St Mary’s Bay (watch the 112 steps down to the beach though!)

•20 min walk to Sharkham Point

•10 min walk down the hill to well-stocked Spar and a few pubs

•The owners, Brian and Jenny, were really friendly and couldn’t do enough to make you feel welcome and ensure you enjoy your holiday.


•Bit hairy negotiating the residential streets when dragging a caravan (especially if you’ve only towed it 4 times like me). Watch out for the big tree in the middle of the road and the 90deg sharp left turn by the car bodyshop!

•No play area for the kids (although they can ride their bikes on site)

•Few uneven pitches so make sure you ask for a level one if you’ve got a tent or TT


•No shop but you can walk across the road to the John Fowler site and use their shop (and probably their play area too)

•We didn’t experience ANY noise from the John Fowler site.

Just back from a weekend at this lovely site.

The good bits:-

1.Very friendly owners, showed us to the pitch and very helpful

2.All families and couples on the site, no noisy groups

3.Toilets and showers were very clean

4.The lovely town of Brixham is a 20 minute walk down the hill

5.Stunning walks along the coastal path from the site - a lovely circular walk which took us a few hours

6.You can get your supplies in the caravan park shop across the road - they don't seem to mind the trade

The not as good bits - and they were very minor -

1.Some of the pitches are a bit uneven - it didn't bother us at all but the VW that tried to pitch next to us couldn't get straight. However the owner came straight out and found another pitch for them!

2.It is opposite a 'John Fowler' static site. There is some noise from the park during the day but just usual kids noise! Didnt disturb us at all - the seagulls made more noise!and a plea from those of us who live in seaside areas

Please, please don't feed the seagulls - saw several people doing it - they are pests!

All in all, a great site, lovely people, great walks - a fab weekend :)

What can I say, fantastic site, friendly, well positioned, very very clean toilet nd showers, the new refurbished one is A1, water positioned all over the site, close to Brixham, its an easy stroll there although the hill on the way back up Castor Road sometimes seams long!

Almost a private beach 2 minutes away, John Fowler site opposite for the odds and sods so although the site has no shop you have got the facility.

Very friendly owners that care about you and camping, the site just keeps improving.

No club ect which makes it a nice chill out site, John Fowler site is opposite some noise but very little and not late, and the campsite is so quiet at night. Ideal for kids.

What more can I say this august was our 25th time at the site (usually 5 nights per stay) in the last 13 years, and it just keeps improving.

On arriving at the site the owners were really helpful and made you feel very welcome.

Campers that did not need a hook up are allowed to pitch anywhere in two large areas - there are no marked pitches.

There are a couple of shops nearby which stayed open until 10 pm and a great shop on the holiday park next door which sold fresh croissants and bread each morning.

Plenty of showers and hot water but no room to leave clothes etc apart from a rail of hooks outside the row of showers which meant very little privacy.

They provided plugs and a large mirror in the laundry area for those like myself who need to dry and style their hair.

The site was well looked after and everyone was very friendly.

Only disadvantage was the long walk up the hill from Brixham and the noise from the holiday park entertainments area but that did close at 12.00 pm.

Would use this site again.
