•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.

Hi we have just returned from upton manor camp site,this was our first time camping and overall a pleasant time was had by all. First the pros- well kept site, very clean, ery quiet at nights and well lit. For a tent (large) with awning and hook up 2 adults 2 kids it was £28 pn.

The walk in to brixham is a good mile an half the nearest shop is a spar about 15 mins away and nearest pub also about same. NThe site is split in 2 hook up and non hook up if your non then its on a slope, if you're hook up then you're either at side of washroom/shower block/loo or under trees, or you may be lucky and get 1 of about 6 or 7 good pitches. There are 2 shower blocks 1 is ok rather modern, both were very clean. If you have children there is nothing for them to do on the site not anywhere for them to kick a ball about but there are plenty of walks around.

If it's all about location, then I think this site scores a perfect 10. It's within walking distance of a lovely, safe beach and just on the outskirts of Brixham, where there's plenty to do, yet it's still rural enough for plenty of good walks - to the Berry Head nature reserve, for example.

As many others have said, it's a relaxed and friendly site, with good facilities. Despite the big red and white signs - all in shouting CAPITAL LETTERS - that warn you against the use of disposble barbeques, or pitching at night, etc, etc, the campsite is run in a pretty laid-back way. If you don't want an electric hook-up, you can go and pitch pretty much where you like, in a big sloping meadow.

Which brings me to one small point - if you like a level site, there are some, but there are also plenty of slopes, some more dramatic than others. Perched on a hilltop, the site has some fine views down over the twinkling lights of Brixham (enjoy the weekend fireworks from the comfort of your tent), but the price you pay is that you might find you have to pitch on a bit of a slope when things are busy. It can also get a little bit exposed at windy times.

Some of the best things:

1) Family shower rooms (but no way to adjust the temperature of the water, as far as I could tell - but my nearly two-year old would have screamed and complained at any temperature - adjustable temperature is available in the old shower block)

2) views

3) lots of space for tents - and plenty of room for kids to play in centre of field

4) the lovely nearby beach, which has sand and rocks, safe swimming and is quite quiet and secluded

Not so perfect:

1) smell of bins, right outside the old shower block - and just where was the bottle recycling?

2) sloping pitches

3) noise from the John Fowler site over the road (the shop there is handy) - couldn't hear it at our tent, on the other side of the campsite, but seemed really loud at the top end of the campsite, by the amenities blocks.
