This was a last minute descision as the weather forecast was good, we decided to make the most of it. We have always loved the South Devon area and didn't want to travel too far from our home, so Kingsbridge/Salcombe seemed ideal.

Booking was easy and it was great to have an all in price of 19 per night for the family and we got a hookup, with no extras to pay for the awning and pup tent we used, and we were surprised no coin meters on the showers.

We were all pleased with our choice of Parkland, the site appeared to be clean and tidy, and the owner was very welcoming. We were even offered a couple a different pitches, I guess they weren't that busy as schools had only just finished. We chose a grass pitch instead of the hard standing, we had plenty of space.

I loved the spacious wash room after a day on Bantham beach, the free showers were great for getting all the sand off the children.

The children took themselves off to the small playroom, it was basic, but it had been freshly painted, it only had a ping pong table and a football table, but the kids were happy which suited us, we just sat and enjoyed the view with a drink!

I did say to James, the owner when we left that we we thought there would be more in the games room, he explained that with all the previous rain there had been a leak that had ruined the pool table and he was waiting on a new one to be delivered by the end of the week.

The area is great for beaches which we spent most of our time on as the weather was so good. Tesco is just 5 mins away so just stopped there for supplies when we needed, the site had a freezer so we could freeze our ice packs to take each day with our picnics.

We did treat ourselves to fish & chips in salcombe one evening and watched all the boats.

During our stay it was the local fair and we were lucky enough to see the fireworks, they were really good.

I guess our other comment would be to follow up on the previous review about the rubbish, I think they must of misunderstood the system. Yes, it is different from other campsites, but it is nice for there not to be smelly rubbish areas - you can leave your rubbish on site if you are happy to pay a surcharge of 1 - we did use this system as we were assured that everything is recycled.

This was an exciting last minute venture for us as we were lucky enough to find our rapido pop top caravan. After deciding on South Devon I quickly searched for a campsite.

Parklands looked great and was not a disappointment. We extended our initial 4 days to 8 as the park was so central to all that we wanted to visit.

The site was well kept and clean and pitch sizes were generous. James was very helpful in giving us ideas and was always very approachable.

I think that this site was well worth the tariff and would def think about returning as there was so much we still wanted to do.

The only small niggle was having to dispose of your own rubbish, but I have visited many sites when you have been met with mountains of rubbish spilling out of bins.

I also feel that the first field you drive through obviously had vans there on a long term basis and they let the overall appearance down as some were a little shabby looking. I would however still highly recommend this camp site

We stayed at Parkland for four nights. All pitches have electric hook up, are very flat with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Facilities were spotlessly clean and showers were powerful with plenty of hot water. James the owner was very friendly; he gave us lots of information regarding the local area and what to do.

Half a mile form the site is a farm shop, call there for meat, veg etc. Excellent food all reasonably priced.

Kingsbridge is only two miles away, and from the quayside we took a boat to Salcome a quaint little village with lovely shops and plenty of places to eat or have a drink. Take the boat to admire the scenery, however check times carefully as the boat doesn't run when the tide is out. (obviously)

On James suggestion we also took the bus from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth. The road is very narrow in places so would not be nice to drive, however sit on the top deck and see the amazing scenery. Had fish and chips there in Rockfish, it has fresh fish, caught locally that morning.

We had a very nice time at Parkland, would highly recommend it and will definitely return.

Very friendly guy who runs this campsite, eager to help you in any way he can.

Nice clean toilets and shower block and a little play area which my 3year old really enjoyed, was very surprised to find out that he did not charge for electric as this is not normally the case in a lot of campsite I've used.

Kingsbridge is only 2 mile away and has a tesco and a morrisons supermarket there are also takeaways aplenty.

It is also I nice little town and well worth a walk around.

I did find Salcombe to be a very busy and pretentious place but Dartmouth is lovely and well worth a look.

Road noise! Having been kept awake until past 1am due to the constant noise which included motorbikes racing into the small hours and rumble strips directly outside the site, to being woken at 5.30am by the lorries and tractors crawling up the slight hill, we decided although we had paid for a full week we weren't going to stay.

We were slightly concerned from arrival about the road noise as during pitching the tent we could hardly hear each other due to the constant traffic. On speaking to the owner asking if other people had mentioned the traffic his reply was 'what do you expect, it's a working community'! As we were outside the school holidays I'd hate to be on site when the holiday traffic is at it's busiest.

The showers were good but small. I put my clothes in a carrier bag on the hook but not my towel and the towel was quite damp at the end of my shower.

Wi-fi reception very poor.

You can get to this site without having to go on any of Devon's narrow lanes, so if caravans are better sound-proofed than tents this would be a positive.

A really nice quiet site. All pitches have electrical hook up and on the weekend we visited it was very quiet so there was lots of room.

Great views over the countryside and a great location to visit the local area. Really handy for Kingsbridge which has a Morrisons and lots of other shops and facilities including a farmers market on every other Saturday.

The shower block on the campsite section was more than adequate. There were a couple of large shower rooms which I think are meant to be Family shower rooms but as it was so quiet we used them as the individual showers were a bit pokey. There were two loos and two showers in the ladies and the same for the men, and then two of these family areas.

Very powerful showers with plenty of hot water, they were spotlessly cleaned and there was loads of hand soap and loo roll.

We didn't meat the owner as my in-laws checked us in as they arrived before us but they said he was very friendly and talked to them about how eco friendly the site was.

We had wi-fi which was 5 for the week and the money is given to charity.

There are no facilities for rubbish on site, you can buy a bag from reception for 1 a bag or take your rubbish with you.

All in all a great stay and and a great little site. We would definitely return.
