If you want a nice quiet break - beware Peppermint Park - it's a very popular park and this shows from the number of people it attracts.

We felt crammed in like sardines in the tourer / motorhome area (god help the tents!) and there was next to no privacy and lots of site noise at night.

This park put us off the using the bigger parks - though we couldn't fault the facilities - laundry was good (so says the wife), toilet and showers very clean though the washup areas were too small.

Pool was great and it was good to see lifeguards on duty too. The site is well lit but a fair walk from the main road and reception area.

Nearby facilities are good - decent chipshop and bakery plus use the local shops are they were/are slightly cheaper than the site shop which also had odd opening times too.

The beach is a short walk away too and the local bus service is good.

Just remember - the site and whole area is popular - so bear this in mind if you want peace and tranquility!

Enjoy your stay!

We spent 10 days at Peppermint park, which we all enjoyed despite the weather (boy did it rain!) We had 2 pitches with electric hookup so we had plenty of room. Showers and toilets were clean and water lovely and hot. The drains near the washing up facilities did smell most days. The shop was well stocked and reasonably priced. The club was good especially as my friend and I won £290.00 at bingo!!! Would visit again.

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.
