My son and I stayed here this past weekend and it was lovely. We couldn't have wished for better weather! The site was very clean and tidy, nicely cut grass. Shower and toilet blocks also very clean and tidy too with free showers and no queues. Plenty of electric sockets in the ladies for hairdryers / straighteners. Children's play areas were good also. On site laundrette (which I didn't use) but looked very well equipped).
Swimming Pool was very nice and heated, with a lifeguard on duty all day as far as I know. Good on site shop which was a little expensive, but useful in that it stocked pretty much everything you may need. I did use the takeaway on the Saturday evening and was not impressed with the cod (I ended up being very sick as I think the fish was off!). All the other members of our party had something different from there which was fine.
Site does have a club house which we didn't use on this occasion. Would definitely go back, my son (10 yrs) thoroughly enjoyed it, and despite the mild food poisoning it hasn't put me off the site itself.

Took a trip into Paignton on the Sunday morning, lots of shops, also went to Paignton Zoo which was well worth a visit, its only 2 miles away from this site.

This was our first proper camping trip in our tent after a disasterous trial run in May in clacton. We didn't need to book in advance but were told we would be allocated a pitch on arrival.We stayed 3 nights before moving on to a static on another site. The grass was well cut and dry.
Staff were friendly. The toilets and showers were very clean and we never had to queue. The take away was ok (we had chips one night) We didn't get to use any of the other facilities but the bar looked pretty full. We used it as a base to explore the surrounding area - Torquay, Paighton Crealy adventure park, Blackpool sands are not far away.

We would definitely go back again.

We came last year, loved it and came back. Ok the weather was awful, (little understatement), but the campsite was still good. Excellent facilities and staff only too happy to help. They have added a few extras this year. A free birds of prey display, scuba diving in the pool (£10) to name a couple.

Evening entertainment for the kids, then disco afterwards. Onsite shop, takeaway, bar, amusement arcade, arts and crafts, pool, laundrette - this site really does have it all! Goodrington, Paignton and Torquay are all close by.

It was our second trip, and we're booked to go back next year. Enough said really. A good family holiday is on offer here, I suggest anybody takes it.

My husband and I stayed on this site for a couple of nights towards the end of September. On driving through the entrance, the site looks very picturesque with its barn style buildings which contain the bar, shop, reception and games room. It also has a lovely outdoor swimming pool but this was closed due to it being the end of the season.

The campsite was virtually empty and we were allocated a pitch in the bottom field which was a bit of a walk up to the bar etc, but as we're both fit and healthy we didn't really mind that. The plus side of being in this field was that it was right next to the new toilet and shower block which was very well planned out and kept spotlessly clean.

The bar was quite modern but as it was inside a barn it had a quaint feeling to it. They sold a good selection of drinks and it was a very pleasant atmosphere.

The surrounding area is lovely and Stoke Gabriel is within walking distance (20 mins) although you have to walk along the winding country road which can be a bit scary especially at night when it's dark. We also took our bikes and cycled into Paignton which wasn't too far, although a bit hilly.

All in all, we really enjoyed our stay on this site and would definitely return again if we're in that area.

We booked this campsite after reading the reviews on this site. The only gripe on site page was scruffy toilet blocks and washing up area. WELL we arrived at site and put up our tent(for the first time) and the children 3 under 4 years were loving running around and were safe to do so. The site piches are quite big we managed to put up our 17ft tunnel tent and gazebo and a paddling pool and park our car. The site had lovely washing up area really clean and loads of sinks and draining boards. The play areas are lovely for little children as well as older ones and the pool is amazing so warm like getting into a bath absolutely amazing. The toilet and shower facilities were also great. Not hotel standars obviously(but then its not a hotel) But clean and tidy and nice and you dont pay for the showers etc. I cannot say enough about this site the shop is great and has everything you need and the food in restaurant is good. Paignton zoo is fantastic and definitely worth a visit. We had an amazing week at Whitehill and I will be returning asap. The price was also very good I paid approx £80 for 5 nights and got 1 night free I think.

Visited this very large site Aug bank holiday, toilets blocks and shower facilities clean and plentiful with hot water. Wonderful view across the countryside.
 
Pitch size was the best we have ever seen, and three main fields and one overflow field with no facilities. The pitches were mainly on slopes so it was quite hard to cook on and you found yourself slipping down your airbed at night - but didn't really bother us too much. There was an adventure playground  near the woods and the caravan site, and two other playgrounds on the site. The bar and cafe were very clean and modern set in what looked like a barn conversion along with an arcade and the family room where the night time entertainment was held.
In the afternoon they offer children's activities ie face painting, colouring, hair beading and pottery painting -the pottery was more like plaster of paris though and quite expensive to do.
 
Other facilities included a laundry room, and a unisex hairdryer room with plugs to bring your own hairdryer/straighteners. Also in the barn conversion was a well stocked but overpriced store. The outdoor heated pool had a life guard on duty most of the time.
 
Site was in a perfect position for visiting the Torbay area. It was situated in the countryside away from any traffic noise.
 
A tip for those people who are looking to spend the week there - buy a week car parking for £26.50 pass from the tourist information centres or the council. It covers the council Torbay car parks to include Paignton, Brixham and Torquay. It saves a great deal and you don't need to worry about rooting around for change all the time.
 
The children loved Brixham in the evening after enjoying seaside fish & chips - they would go crabbing in the harbour a very cheap and enjoyable activity that keeps them occupied for ages!
 
For an overview the site was noisy at times but did calm down when the entertainment stopped. Everything was clean and the grounds were spotless. One particular young lady in the reception was very helpful and kind.
 
We would return but not during such a busy time of the year as we are not noisy campers and are generally tucked up in bed by 9.30pm as we have young children and the noise of people returning to their tents did wake us quite often.
