Just visited site for first time, had a great holiday and the site is an excellent base for lots of local attractions, especially for young families. The site has great facilities, bar for adults with live music & smoke free childrens area's, amusements & kids disco etc, all very good. Outside pool is very warm & has life guard, also plenty of kids playarea's etc.
Only downside to the site is most pitches are on a hill, and standard of cleaning to the toilets is very poor, the main block is a 1970's affair and does not look like it has been spent on since then, also the facilities for washing dishes are in the toilets!
There are also newer smaller toilets around the site, and although these are cleaned the young attendants never once mopped the floors. Overall a great site let down by lack of cleanliness to the toilets which were dirtier then every public toilet the the area.

Visited just last week, our first time staying here and we had a fantastic time. Great facilities all very clean, especially the showers and toilets. Friendly staff, very helpful in answering our questions. Lovely swimming pool - particularly in the hot weather we had! Will definitely be back next year!

We have just returned from the best Holiday we have ever had and it is mainly thanks to this superb park.
We were greeted by a cheary young lady behind reception and we were then showed to our pitch. Great views over the hills and good to watch two birds of prey daily catching their food. 
Bit of a walk down the hill to the shower block and a Little caravan with toilets very close to the tents.
Well stocked shop with ice pack hire and cafe which does an amazing full breakfast. One bar upstairs and next to that is a family area and then int another bar which had a disco every night. 
Very nice heated pool with sun loungers around it with the Cafe also doing takeaways.
This place is the best. (we think so anyway)

I visited this site based upon the numerous and positive reviews on ukcampsites. On looking at their campsite web page and brochure, I was encouraged by the beautiful pictures depicting the site. The reality on arriving however convinced me that they had got their moneys worth in terms of the pictures taken for both the web site and brochure; a large part of the site appearing to be overshadowed by an imposing electricity pylon and cables not apparent in the pictures (although I would expect no site to fixate on this as part of their marketing campaign!)

I had also decided to stay here based upon the owners declaring the swimming pool to remain open (albeit unheated) immediately after the Easter holidays (we can stand the cold). On arrival however, we were told that there was a technical problem with the pool and that it would remain closed (which although no fault of their own, was still very disappointing to us). It must however be said that the site does not advertise the pool open for this period, and our being able to use it would have simply been a bonus.

The weather was generally poor during our stay, which I think blighted my experience of the site, although the resident ducks (who enjoyed our bread) appeared to thrive on it (nice to see them)! Well drained pitches and easy pegging, although a lot of pitches were on heavily sloping areas (be sure to specify your requirements). A relatively quiet road borders the site.

The toilets and showers were second to none, as was the advice given by the helpful owners (thank you to the young lady who reccomended the indian takeaway in Torquay, as the meal was excellent). We did not visit the bar or shop (there is a Sainsburys nearby), so cannot comment on these.

I cannot criticise this site in any way (although neither can I sum up anything particularly outstanding to recommend about it). Personally, I felt that the site had a desolate feel during our off-peak visit, which I believe would not prevail at busier periods. The site offers very reasonable rates of stay, and should not be discounted on the basis of my honest impression (which lies in stark contrast to prior reviews).

This was only our second camping trip and we came across Whitehill by chance. We stayed at the last weekend of the Easter holidays and was amazed at how quiet it was. (only 1 other tent on our field). We arrived on the Thursday and by the Friday at 12 the shop was closed until the next bank holiday. I am sure the bar, pool, games room etc. are all extremely busy at peek season though! In fact I think it would have been too busy for us then because these facilities were quite small for the 500 or so camping pitches! The staff were very friendly. My only disappointment was that I had not realised there were over head pylons above us until we arrived, which buzz when it rains. The grass is well maintained and toilets / showers were clean. Dish washing facilities were indoor in either men's toilets (1) or ladies toilets (5) on our field, however all outside on the other fields Overall very nice and we had a lovely time cycling around the site.

We travel with a group of friends from East Yorkshire to Whitehill and have done for the last 4 years. The staff who work on site are friendly and helpful. Although there is lots to do on site there are also lots of things around and about to do, Quay West, Paignton Zoo, Brixham and Cayman Golf are a few of our favourites.

Whitehill also gives you the opportunity to meet friends from all over the country. The site is safe for children and even though ours are all grown up we look forward to taking our grandchildren. If its relaxation you want the pool area is fantastic or a lazy day outside your tent does just the trick. If you want a rest from driving you can catch the bus which stops just outside the gates.

We all love Whitehill so much we booked this years holiday before we even finished our 2005 one.
