Fantastic site situated just outside the village of Woodbury. Typically for Devon the site is accessed from a narrow road so choose your approach carefully if towing. The welcome on arrival was very friendly and efficient. We were given clear directions to our pitch and a map of the site with our pitch highlighted.

Most of the pitches seem reasonably level.

The play area has all the basics and our two boys spent plenty of time there with the other kids on site.

As far as the on site amenities go, the shower block was always clean, and consumables such as loo roll and liquid soap in dispensers were always well stocked, and the showers are free. We used the bistro on our first night there as we arrived on site around tea time and couldn't be bothered cooking after setting up. The food was good quality and at a reasonable price, anything off the main menu can also be ordered as a take away.

We had the misfortune to experience disruptive campers whilst there, but the wardens and management dealt with the issues quickly and efficiently.

On the whole I would recommend this site as a really good value base to explore the surrounding area, however due to the site's location you will need to use your car.

Excellent campsite, located just 15 minutes from the M5 and provided us with a good base to explore the coast line from Exmouth to Lyme Regis.

Children loved the play ground, and our pitch over looking it worked out fantastically for us. There was a generator sound from the new toilet block which woke us a couple of times on our first night but got accustomed to it.

The toilet/ shower block is quite new, and was very comfortable. No need to pay for any of the water which is always a plus.

There was a regular staff presence on site, which showed in the fact looked well maintained. Everyone one we dealt with was very friendly and helpful.

Bistro on site was an added bonus, providing good food on site at a reasonable price. We had a take away an enjoyed a meal in the open air outside our camper.

Another area ticked off with a go to campsite.

A warm and friendly welcome awaiting our arrival at an excellent site. The shower block is probably the best I have seen anywhere, and due to most caravans being permanent was not heavily used. The Bistro and Bar on site served good food and an excellent pint of real Ale. The prices for both the weeks camp, and the food was very reasonable. I will certainly visit again. The site was awfully wet when we visited and was suffering with ankle deep mud. Help was at hand from the staff laying down boards where required. The only thing that would improve our pitch would be a path connecting the hard standing with the road. I guess this isn't such a problem in the summer!

This was a lovely, peaceful site and we had a nice view of the hills from our hard standing super serviced pitch.

It was really quiet, even though, over the weekend, there were children around. The toilet block was excellent and 'bang up to date', even though it was a little walk from our pitch, which we didn't mind too much.

As the site was a distance from any amenities, it would be great if the shop was much bigger!

Sadly, we couldn't use the local bus service - there wasn't any!

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Best of all, the price was incredible - we had a discount for our age and it gave us a lot of extra money for petrol etc.

My wife and I have just returned from a week long stay at Castle Brake caravan park. We have an Elldis Avante 505 tourer and were on a hardstanding pitch which incorporated mains electric, water tap and drain.

As we are over 50, we got a reduced rate of 70 for the week, which we thought was very good. The reception staff are all friendly and made us welcome on arrival.

The area had just had the worst rain for as long as they could remember, but the pitch was well drained. We were advised not to park on the grass if possible, to reduce damage, understandable in the circumstances.

Our pitch (pitch 2) was quite short and the caravan hitch was almost on the road, but that and the fact that the touring pitches with hardstandings were approximately 200 metres from the very well maintained toilet block, would be our only gripe.

The photo on the front of the brochure shows the toilet block surrounded by caravans. The majority of these are seasonal pitches. The grass touring field is much closer to the facilities.

The site is very easy to get to from the M5, is really quiet, the only noise coming from occasional vehicles using the lane behind the touring pitches to access the village of Woodbury.

It is approximately 4. 5 miles from the M5 to the turning by the 'Halfway Inn' which is something to bear in mind.

As the site is off the beaten track, you will need your car to get to anywhere, unless you are walkers or cyclists, which would make this an ideal site for exploring the area.

We enjoyed our stay very much despite the weather and would return, but choose a different pitch if available.

Great Site. Loved that the tents camping was separate to the caravans. Staff were really friendly and helpful and even suggested we checked out the pitch before we decided to pay due to the bad weather. The great service block warm well equipped, clean and loads of hot water. Had everything you needed, plus I love the fact there were baths. Nice to have a bar and was a really great atmosphere. We really loved this site but sadly have not been able to book in again at last minute. This is our fault but our jobs do dictate when we can get away. Fully recommend this site
