Lovely site in a delightful area. Totally quiet and peaceful.

Having said that, the best thing was the price. Being of the 'Grey Nomad' brigade our caravanning is confined to term time and with the various discounts it was 70 for the week for a hardstanding fully serviced pitch.

Site is beautifully kept and each pitch is absolutely level although the site is set into the hillside. Never got to see inside the service block as we use onboard facilities.

Had a nice meal and a pint in the on site Bistro.

Found the reception staff very pleasant and helpful.

Children's playground but no shop on site. All the big supermarkets in nearby Exeter or Exmouth.

Our first experience of using our campervan and it was a wonderful experience for a first time. Very friendly site, I rang very last minute and asked if we could travel down that day, the girl on the phone was so helpful and friendly even telling me the weather for that day locally. We arrived using the site directions and although it is a bit off the beaten track, we found it easily. A quiet homely site that has the most helpful and friendly staff team.

We were placed in the bottom field where we had a few caravans for neighbours. Plenty of room to park the van and pitch the awning and close to the brilliant newly refurbished shower block which was cleaned daily and in excellent condition. Hot water and heated! Next door was a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers which were coin operated, also several irons and ironing boards also coin operated. A small freezer for freezing your cooler blocks and a few books and magazines at hand to wait for the washing to be done. This room was also heated. Just outside was a lovely well kept washing up area and around the corner a sluice area.

We had to get into the van to travel anywhere but we were close to Exmouth and other beach areas, this was a small price to pay to have the peace and quiet we wanted from our break. There is a lovely wooden play area for Children in the bottom field and a restaurant on site and also a small shop. We had a lovely weekend and the staff need a pat on the back for their unique and very professional service. We will see you again in 2014.

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.
