This is a wonderful site - the shower/toilet block was just as nice as it shows you in their brochure and spotlessly clean. I thought that the soft music played in there was a very nice idea.

We were given a pitch on Buttermeadow, which gave us plenty of room for our tent and was level. The area around us was very well kept and lite well at night, and there was a pleasant and cosy atmosphere.

The campsite is very well located to visit all of our favourite places around that area - Torquay, Dartmouth, Salcombe, Totnes to name a few.

The only downside was that we were reminded at 10:40 that we were supposed to be off the site for 11:00 by one of the owners who was sat on his mower ready to cut the grass.this took us by surprise as we had nearly packed up and had only the groundsheet to put away. We were off the pitch in time and thought the reminder a little unecessary. Otherwise, we had a terrific holiday and would certainly go there again.

What a great site!  Clean at all times, staff were really friendly and helpful without being 'in your face' - they were just there working away quietly.  Despite AWFUL weather and mud being walked everywhere the toilets and shower blocks were spotless.  The only, very minor, criticism I can add is that on one occasion from a 7 night stay there was no loo roll in the ladies toilets at 10pm - I said it was minor!
 
The pitches were sensibly spaced and despite the site being used by a large number of families with children (of which we were one) we never had any problems with noise or over boisterous kids - the two play areas were more than enough to keep even my two happy!
 
The lane to the site is narrow but taken sensibly it is passable and the local drivers are courteous enough to give way to those towing so it wasn't a problem.
 
Would definitely go again!

This is the best site we have stayed on for a number of reasons. Having negotiated the narrow road down to the site which I admit was a bit scary you arrive at the most scenic of sites The welcome is very friendly and all the amenities are pointed out before you go off to your assigned pitch.
We were in Butter Meadow conveniently situated between the dog walk (bags provided) and the toilet block. These are loos and showers to die for . I particularly liked the idea of the loos and wash basins being accessed by a different entrance to the showers and what a brilliant idea to have radio playing at all times. (None of that deathly early morning silence when everyone is trying hard not to notice or be noticed whilst in the loos.)
The provision of a microwave (coin operated) in the wash up room was a good idea too. Throughout our short stay all the staff were friendly and helpful and the site was kept in immaculate condition. We will certainly be going back for a longer stay.

We stayed at this site for a week and had a really good holiday. The weather was great which helped but what made the holiday great was this site. Firstly all the tent pitches are level and well spaced with bins close by so you don't have to carry your rubbish a long way.
There are two play areas at each end of the site which are great for the kids, we have a one year old and a three year old who both loved going to them. There is a big wooden fortress and an assault course for older children.
The on site shop is fairly small but has most essential items including disposable bbq's. The park has two modern heated toilet blocks which are always spotless and have the radio playing which was a nice touch.
The only downside with this site if you want to go to a beach, the nearest being Torquay or Painton is you will have to drive. All in all we loved Dornafield and will definitely be returning.

Easily the best UK campsite I've stayed on. I agree with all the preceding comments. The reception is staffed until 5pm - after that you're given directions to the information room, where pitch availability is shown. You enter your details and settle up in the morning. Simple and effective.

This site is so good that I can only think of two minor gripes: the push buttons in the showers, but as another reviewer said, this minimises water waste; and a little more space between the motorhome waste water dump grate and the adjacent fresh tap would be nice!

This was a beautiful site. The pitches were great. We were on a super pitch where you had everything you needed on your pitch. The pitches were hard standing and you could borrow the awning pegs free of charge, paying just a small deposit. The staff were friendly and the shop was well equipped. The toilet blocks were first class, the best we had ever seen. There were power showers that were nice and big. I always struggled to get my 4 year old son to have a shower until we went to Dornafield and he was nagging me to have a shower every morning. 
I did some washing whilst I was there. There was a spin dryer, washing machines, tumble dryer and an iron all beautifully kept. Be careful of the narrow lane approaching and leaving the site especially if you have a caravan.
This site was worth every penny and a cut above the rest. It was very quiet and where we were based was almost too quiet for children. We will definitely be going back though.  We had a problem with our brake lights on the caravan just as we were leaving. "Simon" one of the directors was so helpful and got his tool box out. He spent a long time helping us and soon got us on our way. I thoroughly recommend this site, fantastic!
