Just been there for a weekend with our 2 boys. The weather was fantastic - which helped - but the site was great. It's well kept, excellent facilities, good site staff presence always willing to help and family orientated. We were in the 'Picnic Meadow' (overflow) which we actually preferred - more space and nice & flat but a further walk to the main activities. Also only 4 showers for what must have been 40+ pitches ! good job it wasn't that full I guess. More facilities dotted around the site though.

I did like the pitches - very generous, well marked and grassy.
It's an adventure biased place but it's for all abilities so if you/your children like to be outside doing lot's of different things then it's well worth a visit.

We camped (two families) over the first weekend of the half term holidays. We were in the "overflow"/picnic field as site was fully booked. Had a fantastic time. Stream running along one side and River Dart the over. Large well-marked out pitches - large enough for a 9 man dome tent, gazebo and trailer on one pitch. Toilet and amenity block very close by. Very clean, although ditto another comment - at peak times showers flooded - could do with leaving a brush or something to help it drain a bit quicker! Didn't need to leave the site.

Facilities fantastic - kids loved the ariel slides, cows udder, spiders web etc. Also spent a lot of time at the pirate ship lake with our dingy. Kids and men (35+) really enjoyed the assault course and the DareDevils tree top challenge (buy tokens) - so much so that we've kept some tokens for a return visit - hopefully in the summer. Didn't use the pool - although again, ditto previous comment, could really do with a re-vamp! Popped into shop but didn't use pub/restaurant as cooked ourselves.

Advise to book early as excellent site. Will definitely be returning.

I visited this site for the first time this summer. We went before the school holidays and it was very quiet; cant comment on busy periods though. The site is wonderful; the only negative comment is the awful over priced food served from the cafe. There is lots for kids to do and the pub serves a great pint of Guinness!

This was our first camping trip in this country and what a great first experience. Impressed with efficiency of reception staff and wardens who show you personally to your pitch. Lovely location, spotlessly clean and excellent facilities. Perhaps the shop could do with a few more items on its shelf but the otherwise this is a kiddly paradise.
We will definitely return.

First impressions of this site are very good as you enter down a long driveway through fields which later give way to the gardens of the Mansion House. The gardens at the front of the house have plenty of mature trees (including redwoods) and lawns where campers picnic etc. It's great there is no camping in this area. The campsite feels spacious although, in mid-August, there was hardly a spare pitch to be had.

We were on the Picnic Meadow down by the bridge, with the River Dart on one side and a small stream along the other. There were tiny fish in the stream and dragonflies overhead. It seems the campsite has recently expanded into both this area and the Walled Garden. There is no electric on the Picnic Meadow, though there is on the Main camping field.

The toilets nearest our tent were clean and had paper. The showers didn't drain very well, so there was standing water on the floor at peak times. The cleaning staff were very cheerful and efficient. In fact, all the staff we met (and there are plenty) were friendly and efficient.

It has to be said the pool is rather old and small. It isn't flush with the surroundings like modern pools and the area around the pool was uneven paving stones.

There are 2 areas of adventure play. The one at the top of the site by the mansion consists mainly of a gigantic rope web, which was fun, and an Anaconda slide.

The second playground is in two parts. There's a small lake with a beach, bridges, ropes and a pirate ship. The beach needed a bit of attention as someone had obviously had great fun dgging trenches all over it. There's a second lake where you can hire 3-seater canoes for 7 for 30 mins. It seemed a bit tame, but might suit younger children. You can do proper canoing and white water rafting from the site at extra cost.

Once you get past the lake there is an adventure playground in the woods, with 2 zipwires and various things for swinging and climbing on.

The other paid activities are a mega zipwire, which was fun, and a High ropes walk in the woods, which was a bit too ambitious for us.

Facilites near the Mansion include a bar and cafe (separate) with a reasonably-priced games room at the back. There's a little shop, which stocks camping stuff, swimming stuff, souvenirs and a few essentials. Films are shown in the Ballroom (we saw Shrek 2) and the very big tv in there was also available for the cricket. There's another tv in the bar and I'm glad to say the sound is turned down in favour of music as the evening progresses.

In the 4 days we were there we had plenty to do and didn't really need to leave the site at all. Though the great Chinese takeout in Ashburton deserves an honourable mention:-)

The pool does need updating but they seem professional enough to have realised that. And we also had trouble bookin in the first place, with email unanswered and nobody answering the phones in the evening. I phoned in the daytime eventually & got booked quite quickly. In the end I was glad I hadn't given up.

This was our second visit and we had a fantastic week - only went off site a couple of times as we were all having such fun messing about in our inflatable boat at the pirate lake. The adventure playgrounds are also excellent and our children enjoyed riding their bikes down the slope on the camping field.
One of the toilet and shower blocks was significantly better than the other - only a minor gripe though - we'll be back!
