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.

I sense a common theme on most of the review here. Am I going to agree You betcha. First time away in our motorhome thought we should choose a park with everything and lots for our 4 year old to amuse himself with. I wouldn't say we were dissatisfied more dissappointed. Pitch mas tiny no way we could have had an awning, Very very close to each other and hard to get into as the road was so narrow on site. Pool was closed (Peak Season!!!) Club was heaving and far too small for the amount of people on site. Showers were hot (too hot for a child with no way to regulate the temperature). However there are very helpful staff (politeness goes a long way) and everything was very clean. I don't think we would visit agin though. Just too cramped. 6 out of 10

We have just returned from a week at Peppermint Park with our 2 children aged 9 & 10. Our tent was pitched in the 'Park view' area. The pitch was plenty big enough with enough room for the tent the car and plenty of space at the front which most people wind breaked off. We would rather have been on the edges of this field with only a tent on each side. Unfortunatley we were slap bang in the middle with tents on all four sides. Toilets and showers were clean and plentiful. Only four washing up sinks though and people were queing to wash up. The drains leading from the sinks smelt pretty bad.

Shop was very well stocked and reasonabley priced.Nice snack bar. Only '2' washing machines working out of a possible 4 in laundrette . People queued for hours to use them , I never actually mangaed to get near one and towards the end of our holiday kids were running out of clean clothes.Kids loved the outdoor swimming pool and water flume which had 2 lifeguards on duty at all times. We never actually used the club facilities but by all accounts they were supposed to be very good.

The staff were all very friendly and helpful. The only drawbacks were that this site was absoulutey heaving. It was very very busy and very very noisy. There seemed to be lots of families with three or four pitches together who roped off the whole area and socialised well into the night often playing loud music. Out of the school holidays I daresay this is a really lovely camp site but if like us you are confined to the six weeks be prepared, your kids will love it but don't expect a peaceful break.

Well, have just got back from here, the toilets & showers were cleaned at least 4 times a day, plenty of free hot water too. The clubhouse got really over-packed on the 2 occasions we went there, they also charged 40p for a pint of tap water! so I was quite glad that in Dawlish Warren itself, there are plenty of pubs all with good food. Drink prices are quite steep too.
I must say on entering the park along the one way road I was quite shocked at how close all the caravans were to each other & was beginning to get a bit worried that our tent would be the same, but luckily where we were situated there was plenty of room & it was flat. People were all friendly too. The only real thing that got on my nerves here, was those damn seagulls! I've never in all the years I've been camping, heard anything like it at 4 in the morning!
May go back if wanting to holiday in that area again.

Hired at static van for a week which was of a good standard, the club was good for kids if a little loud at times. However (no prams in the club at night we had to take our car seat).
The pool was good, the shop well stocked, playarea was well maintained.
About a 20 min walk to the beach. The site itself is a bit hilly. Recommended
