Excelent pool, excellent shop, excellent pub on site, also great looking site, now that I have got that out of the way, the down side... We were put in the overflow field, which was well out of the way of all the amenities it was a good 5-10 walk to the toilet block which I think is unacceptable as we paid the same as everyone else, there was no water stand in the overflow field either, so carrying a water bowser from the main field was no joke.
Our friends were put on the normal tent field which was great, nice flat pitch on cascading levels so noise was not a problem. if you go to this site using a tent I would insist on being in the tent field, if they dont have the space then do not go, find somewhere else. do not go into the overflow field... come on Cofton country holidays if you are going to use the overflow field then put a shower/toilet block in there, or at least water facilities.

Arriving after the compulsory 40-minute delay to get past that stupid building in Starcross (why don't they just demolish that portico?!) the site made a very favourable impression - which I'm glad to say lasted. The site is regularly cleaned and while the outfields make do with (good) portakabins for showers they make up for that with extra space. However, in peak season don't expect too much privacy - rather a lot of kids haring about across folks' pitches for my liking. The pool is excellent and open until 7 pm. You can walk to Cockwood and a couple of very nice pubs with lovely views, along lanes with virtually no traffic.
Top tips: try a steak at the Swan on site - surprisingly ecxellent; take the ferry from Starcross to Exmouth (tidy and devoid of any seaside seediness). On the way back, admire the unusual tower building where you dock in Starcross. Apparently it is the last remaining pumping house from Brunel's Atmospheric Railway.

Brilliant, The outdoor pools are really good, the staff were very friendly, the childrens entertainment was rather amusing but this is in a positive way, they also had singers on, who were of a good standard.

I really did enjoy my stay, the only problem I had was I had my dog with me & there was myself, my mom & my 3 yr old son, My mom couldnt join in with us in the pool as there are Zero facilities for the dog, as in to tie her up on a post ! That is my only gripe.

What a breath of fresh air this campsite is!!!

As soon as we arrived this site gave a great impression. It is set off the main road and has masses of land, (fantastic if you've got two boisterous dalmatians!!) The staff in the reception are very helpful and the site looks fantastic. The showers and the grounds are immaculately kept with maintenance happening every day. The staff in the bar were very pleasant and helpful and the family bar is kept smoke free. A relief, as some of the campsites we have visited before have been awful.

The shop is well stocked but if you want to eat out I would recommend The Anchor in Cockwood. Had a fantastic meal here, the fish was delicious - really fresh. For the kids I would recommend the River Dart Adventure Park as a great day out.

However, if you are looking forward to a peaceful time do not go when the schools are on holiday, the popularity of this site showed on the Saturday after the schools broke up as the site was already mobbed!!

Would highly recommend this site as I had a fantastic time and would definitely go back. (Out of peak season!)

Stayed Thursday to Thursday over Bank Holiday weeknd. Very impressed with the site. Friendly and accommodating staff. Will definitely go again, although at a quieter time.

Good pool, and good fishing (our first time!). Very very busy, and facilities struggled to cope with this -more shower blocks needed, and the club got crowded in the evening. This was ok for us because we have a shower in the caravan, and don't really use the clubs. When we did use the showers (in the new blocks) we found them to be very large, convenient, and hot!

Found the best pub in the area on the last day -The Atmospheric Railway Inn, in Starcross. Great food, and both indoor and outdoor family areas out the back.

Staff were helpful when some fools let their dog mess outside our pitch.

Just got back and really enjoyed it. First time camping for longer than a weekend.

Need to update/increase the shower/toilets in 10 acre field but they were cleaned 3 times a day.

Shop - good, Food - Good, Swimming Pool - good, Staff - very friendly.

Will definately go again.

Set out at midnight on Friday night and got stuck for over an hour on the M4 at Slough. Arrived on site at about 8 o/c and a very helpful chap took our details and we were shown to our pitches as we had booked two next to each other for caravan and tent, was impressed with check in because reception didn't open til 9 o/c.

We had a lovely position in Coombelands with great views and very handy for all facilities. The pool area was very nice with a play area beside it which the kids loved. There's an army style assault course in the woods aswell.

Toilet and shower blocks were kept clean which is a thankless task given the state that some fellow campers left them in !! Did not find a problem with waiting for showers as we were up before 8 o/c every morning. The shop was well stocked and all of the site staff were brilliant. Don't bother taking ice packs as you cannot freeze your own, they are available from the shop for £3 deposit and 25p each time you get one.

We had food from the take away several times and it was very good, the snacks from the Swan were very nice and the service was very quick, there is also a Chinese take away beside the turn off to Dawlish Warren and the food was lovely.

Dawlish Warren was a nice seaside area and Kents Cavern is worth a visit.

Dawlish Carnival was on and we were treated to a good air display over the beach with a fine performance from the Reds.

There's a few pubs in Dawlish that show the footie on Sky for those interested.

We had an excellent week and the site was great, we were very impressed and will definately return.

We stayed for 3 nights and arrived about 2:30pm Friday afternoon, we booked a basic pitch at reception with the extremely cheerful and helpful reception staff, whereupon we were handed over to a very pleasant, helpful young man who asked us what kind of location we would prefer e.g. quiet, away from roads, by a playground etc.

We asked for a pitch next to a playground and away from a main road, for our son. We were spoilt for choice, and chose one right alongside the playground fence.

We were amazed at the sizes of these basic pitches, which had a low fence separating each pitch which were about 25' wide x 25' long.

After pitching the tent, we headed straight for the pool. We were gob-smacked that we actually found a campsite that lives up to it's brochure.
What you see in the brochure, of the lovely pools and surrounding grassed area is exactly what we got - beautifully maintained to a standard we have never come across before.

The toilet and shower blocks were too still kept to the highest standards as everything else, and have got to be the cleanest and most spacious we have ever used to date.

The onsite shop was also excellent, it sold everything you could need including toiletries, medicines, camping spares, barbcues, magazines, alchahol, and obviously food, etc. All of which was reasonably priced.

Other campsites should take note, and realise that this atandard and quality can be acheived.

We could go on and on about this site, but we shall just say that we will definately be going back soon!

This was our first ever camping holiday and couldnt of wished for a better campsite.

The owners were very friendly and extremely helpful. The grass was kept short and the amenities included shower rooms with individual cubicals, superbly kept toilets, 7 sinks with drainers for washing up those mucky pots, and the hot water was free!
There was a launderette reasonably priced only £3 a wash and large tumble driers 20p cycles.

Our daughters enjoyed using the large swimming pool, heated, and the arcade whilst we enjoyed the use of the fishing lakes. There were excellent parks for the kids, slides and climbing frames gallore!

All in all, we had the time of our lives and cant wait to do it again, in fact we are planning on going back there at the end of September.

We did take the girls into Paignton just down the coast road, about 30-45mins.... to the Quaywest water park however it is only open May-June and September-October. Nearby Dawlish town is also very nice, narrow streets but well worth visiting.

Well we cant praise this site anymore it was just fabulous and the weather was wonderful...... a great way to begin a camping future!
