This place is absolutely fabulous! We couldn't fault it. Despite the enormous amount of people it caters for, it didn't feel overcrowded, there was plenty of space between campers and everybody we spoke to were very friendly. Dogs are allowed on this site but nowhere did they bother us and no unexpected mess anywhere. The grounds are beautifully kept and the facilities spotless. There is also a family bathroom with a bath which was wonderful as I could stick my littlies in the bath after a very busy day. A drying room too where you can hang your wet gear overnight and get it back dry in the morning. The activities you can get up to here are amazing and very reasonably priced. The restaurant is marvellous, lovely food and good service all at a price that is affordable for a family on holiday. The on site shop is very small and only has the barest of essentials but in the nearby town there is a small supermarket if you need it. We had a fantastic holiday here and I would and have recommended it to all our friends. We will definitely be back. Happy Campers!

Great campsite visited on the hottest weekend of the year.

Myself, wife and 2 children aged 5 and 2 really enjoyed it.

Plus points

Large pitches

Family friendly with noise curfew at 11:00pm

Fantastic setting reminding me of France or Canada.

Lots of activities for the kids

Great river beach and water activities to cool off in

Well kept, clean, adequate amenities.

Minus points

River beach to small

Shop very limited

Although my children enjoyed it I think it is geared at children at 5 plus.

Overall great 2 nights would visit again.

My Husband & I stayed here with 3 boys age 10, 9, 7 and our dog. It was a great weekend everyone enjoyed it. 10 out of 10. Toilet and shower block were really clean. Excellent playgrounds for all ages even adults. The food was lovely and very well presented and at reasonable prices. Only criticism is that the shop could of stocked more milk, bread, eggs. The surrounding town of Ashburton is a lovely little town and the views surrounding the campsite are so beautiful.

After a recommendation about this site I thought I`d take my 11 year old daughter there.

I`ve just come back (spent 3 nights there) with mixed feelings.

Positives :-

The paid for activities are excellent. Zip wire and High Ropes Course in particular were brilliant.

The staff on the paid activities were fabulous. Very kid friendly and made sure kids understood what they had to do and safety was well explained.

Excellent washing up area and the showers and toilets could no be faulted. I went at a peak time and saw lots of cleaning going on so whenever I went it was always clean. Always hot water too. Top marks

Bar beer prices were very reasonable and a good selection too.

Plenty of space in the Walled Garden camping area for outdoor games ie frisby, badminton, ball etc

Negatives :-

The free kids activities were very very poor. They may have been good when the park first opened but are now in desperate need of renovation, repair or reconditioning. Very disappointed.

The arcade. In a word terrible. An air hockey game that blows next to no air so is virtually unplayable and it only records one person scores ! And a pinball machine with only one working flipper. You can`t play with one flipper ! Both are therefore a waste of money.

The walled garden has no facilities at all except for a tap.

Meals at the Old Saw Mill were pricey although looked good quality.

Shop was average at best

A shocking lack of signage. A map of the whole site at regular points is desperately needed as it`s so huge.

Location - its a good way from the coast. I know I made the choice to stop here but as a base its a good 40 mins or so from Torquay or Paignton, Goodrington Sands (which is a fantastic place as so much to do there)

To be fair when I booked I was told it may be a small walk to the facilities but I wasn`t advised just how far ! At 26. 50 a night for just two people I expected more in the way of facilities.

It would be good for a day out but don`t feel they have done enough for it to be recommended as a campsite.

Although I appear to have more negatives than positives we did enjoy ourselves but not sure I`d go back there.

Wow brilliant, managed to get on without booking as spotted it as a drive by! Super site lots of room on pitches and positioned well for privacy. No end of things for children to do parks are fantastic which allow kids to play with their imagination. Also on site various actinides for extra cost however we never got time as so much to do anyway. Shop not too great but maybe as it was end of season lots of toys not much food however great bar next door so a good excuse not to cook! Bath was great showers were normal tap push camping showers do the job but will never be as good as home! Washing Mach dryer iron room. Dog friendly

Great site, as per the majority of reviews on this site state.

Very clean facilities, good value in the on site restaurant/pub and our 3 daughters (11, 11 and 6) loved all the play areas, even though the water was a touch cold!

Really enjoyed our 5 nights, heavy rain for a few days but the site drained quickly.

Big pitches, we were on pitch 5, with hardstanding and electric.

Will definitely return,
