I would just like to voice a compliment about this park. My girlfriend and I come here at least twice a year and camp on the large non electric pitches. Usually for bank holidays or other short breaks but not usually in the main peak season. The shower block has loads of cubicles, and mainly plenty of hot water in the showers. There is a shop just outside the park that is dirt cheap for all you camping goodies. the staff are friendly, helpful and I would always recommend this park to any one.

We have been going to peppermint for the last 5 years at least, we loved it just as much last time as we did the 1st visit, the staff are all friendly, the site is clean thanks to Chris & Danny (park wardens), the toilets & showers are always clean, we always go onto park view, there is always plenty of space on the pitches, we have only had problems with noisy people once & it turned out they were staying at peppermint paddocks (static vans)!!!!
We have always been made to feel very welcome especially by Chris with his greeting of "welcome home" as soon as he see's you, all I can say now is "roll on may 2005 can't wait"

If you want a nice quiet break - beware Peppermint Park - it's a very popular park and this shows from the number of people it attracts.

We felt crammed in like sardines in the tourer / motorhome area (god help the tents!) and there was next to no privacy and lots of site noise at night.

This park put us off the using the bigger parks - though we couldn't fault the facilities - laundry was good (so says the wife), toilet and showers very clean though the washup areas were too small.

Pool was great and it was good to see lifeguards on duty too. The site is well lit but a fair walk from the main road and reception area.

Nearby facilities are good - decent chipshop and bakery plus use the local shops are they were/are slightly cheaper than the site shop which also had odd opening times too.

The beach is a short walk away too and the local bus service is good.

Just remember - the site and whole area is popular - so bear this in mind if you want peace and tranquility!

Enjoy your stay!

We spent 10 days at Peppermint park, which we all enjoyed despite the weather (boy did it rain!) We had 2 pitches with electric hookup so we had plenty of room. Showers and toilets were clean and water lovely and hot. The drains near the washing up facilities did smell most days. The shop was well stocked and reasonably priced. The club was good especially as my friend and I won £290.00 at bingo!!! Would visit again.

Just returned from here the pluses are the teenagers loved it, the swimming pool, club. The showers plentiful clean and ample hot water. the location was great in walking distance to beach and numerous pubs. The down side the pitches for tourers were cramped and got waterlogged the awning was an awful state. But I suppose things may have looked better if the sun had shined a bit more. The club was typical holiday camp style and the beer quite expensive.

CRAMPED is definitely the word for this site, tents too close together in my opinion. Don’t even think about taking a large caravan unless you are very good at manoeuvring it into a very tight space and those with awnings & 4 x 4s had to park practically on the already narrow road, the emergency services would struggle to get in quickly.

The toilets/showers cleaned once a day by a friendly chap, which although being busy are OK. Some of the showers are better than others - most of the water went straight over my head as the shower head is fixed (put your shoes on the shelf / seat or they WILL get wet)!!

The washing up area had only 4 sinks in a rather snug space & did not smell too fresh.

Pre booked pitches are level & well maintained but don’t think about staying in the overflow field unless you are a mountain goat as the pitches are on a steep slope, as is the children’s play area.

OK supermarket on site & another on edge of park. Snack van does excellent rolls at breakfast time, takeaway on site too and fish & chip shop opposite that also does pizza & jacket spuds.

Pool used VERY briefly as my small children became distressed as it was full of children splashing about on inflatables - even in the baby pool. Club pleasant but small.

Dawlish Warren is nice enough, great green area and child friendly pub with decks overlooking the sea. High sea storm walls down to beach with no railings added to the stress levels with independent toddlers to deal with!!

Had a great holiday, nice friendly site but having spoken to a lot of people the general consensus was “not the best site we’ve been to” Would not go back.
