Arrived in dry weather and left in dry weather - weather during week mainly RAIN but this didn't deter us - great site as we have visited before many years ago.  Great facilities, this even includes hot showers and plenty of running water.,  plenty of space for the children to run around - playgrounds ok. Very safe site.  The takeaway / granary  / bar., etc  - ok reasonably priced.  Shop on site has most of the essential items required and not badly priced either. 
Pool lovely and warm - mind you we only dipped our toes., the children thought it was great though. Staff very friendly and helpful with any questions or queries - on arrival we were shown on the site map where our pitch was - very easy to find.  Very clean and tidy site.   Top marks.  We will be visiting again but hopefully the weather might be better next time., as on each visit it's been average., not the med or Riviera we expected !   We would recommend this site to fellow tenters and caravanners alike !

Is was out second visit to Whitehill and we can recommend the site for families we are a family of seven. There are various activities. This includes a Birds of pray display (free), kayaking in the pool as a tester session that includes games (free) and a try scuba diving in the pool session (£10). These extras give the site the X factor. Toilets were clean and the shop was well stocked.

Had a week here and what else can I say the site was top notch. The facilities were very clean even though it was a very busy week the pub was friendly and had outside facilities. There was a outdoor pool which was always clean and had life guards on duty most of the day. The site had a café, laundrette, and shop all of which perform very well. The site does not seem to have any fenced pitches but this was not a problem as the pitches are well spaced out so you have the privacy which is required for the family to enjoy them selves in the paddling pool etc but still be close enough to neighbours to share a “hello”. The site, as its name suggests, is in the countryside so don’t expect to be too close to Paington or Torquay. We took a daily drive to both which come with the usual seaside price tag on parking, but as this is nothing to do with the site I will say no more. The country side around the sit appears very nice and there seems to be lots of walking for people who are inclined to such activities. J Overall this site was very good. Very clean, very friendly, nice location. We are planning on returning next year.

Went to this campsite as a kid with my parents and have many fond memories. Now its my turn to take my kids on their first camping trip and was amazed to fond this place has hardly changed.
Nice big pitches and plenty of amenities. We stayed on the Summerhills field where there are 2 sets of toilets for gents and ladies, chemical loo disposal facility AND a seperate "hut" with sinks and hot water for washing up pots. The main shower block is a very short walk down a hill, (well more of a slope really), and was nicely surprised to find the hot water is free for showers, shaving, washing up, etc.
Very friendly staff. Arrived early but no problems letting us set up camp there and then.
Well stocked shop with all your needs catered for. They've got the usual buckets and spades, etc and food, but also camping accessories like replacement gas cylinders and even regulators.
Lovely pool area with life guard and paddling pool for the really little uns too. Really nice pub and decking area, but pub is a little on the small side so if you want a seat get there early, (had to stand outside to watch England getting knocked out of World Cup!) The list goes on, craft area, disco and amusement arcade for the kids plus a takeaway on site when you can't be bothered driving anywhere.
They have a limited number of pitches with electric hookup and saw many security patrols during our 10 day stay.
Whitehill is located off a quiet B road so no traffic noise. There is also a farm selling proper scrumpy cider within 1 minutes drive also! For shopping there is a Morrisons supermarket within 5 minutes drive, and Paignton Zoo is right next to it. Goodrington Sands is an excellent beach and is less than 10 minutes away by car, as is Paignton town centre with its beachfront, shops and pier! Word of advice get a council weekly car park pass for £25 (lets you use pay and display car parks for free!) Go to Whitehill Farm, its a lovely site for first timers or those returning to relive their childhood!

A nice site that needs a little tender love and care by making new washing / toilet blocks, as we were there they planned to have new ones for 2007.
The entertainment I cannot comment on too much as we were told that unless you get into the hay barn before 7pm you cannot get seated, that's how small it is.
The site is too big to cater for entertainment as there are too many pitches there I am told it was about 390 pitches and another field had been opened this year as well. 
A very noisy site if your near the park as the park should close at 9 I think but kids never stopped playing there so a lot of people were getting distressed about it and all I saw has a ranger on his quad coming down every so often to sort things out.
They need to remove the park from areas where people are sleeping or move the people areas further away!
On the whole I would not go back to this park as I am sure I can find others near paignton that might suit me better.

Have been back 2 weeks now and the tents only just dried out! never the less what a good site, only problem seems to be everybody and his dog wants to be shown to their pitch at the same time and some people just won't wait! it took me nearly 30 minutes and two arguments about who was next.
Superb facilities, heated pool (with lifeguard), takeaway, bar with fantastic decking and well stocked shop(keep an eye on the closing times).plenty of extra activities in evidence like birds of prey shows. ask for coombe meadow (fifties and low sixties seemed to be the best) if you want electric hook up.
A lot of sloping pitches on sweethill, so be careful on that one!Toilet blocks ok but you can see the signs of ageing on some, plenty of hot water in the mens block but the wife says the womens were cold occassionally.
All in all we enjoyed ourselves and will be back.
