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.

Stayed 3 nights only . But this is absolutely our sort of site! All the basics and no unnecessary frills . Plus extremely good value for mid-July ( comment from another reviewer about comparative cost is just plain wrong! ).

Facilities are excellent - wonderful showers and plenty of hot water. Ladies' toilets refurbished and excellent, mens' will be refurbished later this year. Lots of space and opportunities for youngsters to play. Owners very friendly and helpful.

Lots to do in the area particularly if, like us, you enjoy walking.

We were at one of closest points to adjacent holiday camp mentioned by some reviewers and were not disturbed. If there were a problem the site is big enough to move to a more distant point!

Highly recommended!

First time on this site, and we would definitely go again. Wonderful showers in ladies and as much hot water as you want - free.

Richard who runs the site is so nice, and nothing is too much trouble for him. Firstly we didn't have enough pegs for the awning and he found us some then I had an accident with a knife but Richard and his Mum patched me up brilliantly so I didn't need a trip to local hospital.
Very handy shop on the site just across the road for all essentials, just a shame they don't let you have temporary membership of their club to go for a drink at night, that would have been really handy. All in all we had a wonderful week and will definitely be back.

Reviewer: Collins family 2008 1 review from this member

Our first time at this site and we were very happy with it. A well kept site, grass cut twice in the 5 days that we were there. Toilet and shower blocks very clean and always a good suppy of toilet rolls and soap. Newer updated block with modern toilets and showers, hairdryer and electric shaver point and constant supply of hot water, 2nd block not so modern but also very clean and with constant hot water in showers and basins. Cant understand some people moaning about blocks being dated (ok this was before the updates started) but when you go camping you dont expect a wet room or a jacuzzi do you!

Laundry very well equipped and also had electrical points that you could use for your own hairdryer, phone charger etc, washing up rooms clean and lots of sinks so no queing for ages.

Lots of water points with push button taps, but if people cant use them you can go to wash up area and get water there easily!

Very friendly family run site, very helpful and also do freezer pack hire for your coolbag, bbq hire (I think) and have an arrangement that you can use john fowler campsite shop.

We were opposite the clubhouse of the above site and the latest we heard any noise was 10pm, we didnt get disturbed by it nor did our 3 children aged 10,5 and 1 who were in bed by then and asleep!

Lots of lovely walks and beaches nearby, local shops also within walking distance, Regular buses.LOts of family attractions to visit, you get a local events guide given to you when you check in and lots of other attractions leaflets available at camp office.

We will definately be booking in at this site again and recommending it to friends as well!
