Please note that Golden Sands has been merged with the site previously known as Peppermint Park. They are now one single large site, which will continue to be called Golden Sands.

We booked onto this site last week while touring in our motorhome in Devon. We just turned up at the gate and were greeted with a very warm reception. We booked in for one night but ended up staying for three. The site is within walking distance of Dawlish Warren where you can get a train to Torquay for 5 return for adults. (The site is very big and it's quite a walk from one end of the site to the other but this wasn't a problem for us!)

There are lots of amenities on site and would be ideal for people with children. We went to the club every night and although it isn't really our thing, it made a nice change. The entertainment staff were very good and made the effort to speak to people who were staying on the site.

But the best thing about this site was the price - only 7 per night for a hardstanding pitch with electric and water! This has got to be the cheapest site we've stayed on and for that price we couldn't really complain! We will definitely stay here again if we're in the area.

Horrendous! The pitches have no drainage at all so when it rained we were literally pitched up in our own private swimming pool. We were pitched at the top of the site near some wild over grown hedges. As we have a large tent we had to squeeze it on the pitch which is fair enough but we had to pitch on brambles and thistles.

We have camped here before so was very disappointed to find how much it has gone downhill.

If they worked as hard to maintain there pitches and looking after campers as they do on caravan sales this would be a great site. As it is now I would not recommend anyone to stay here. :o(

On arrival we were early (1020hrs) & were turned away until 12 when our pitch would be ready, to which the occupants hadn't vacated so we had to wait until they did. There was no urgency from the staff to get us on our booked pitch.

All of the touring pitches were hard standing (road stone etc) & there is a grassed area next to it for your awning. Unfortunately, our pitches grassed area was 8 inches higher than the hard standing so we had to set up our awning on the hard standing area, bad idea!

Due to the heavy rain & the fact there is no drainage for surface water our awning got flooded on day 2 & the awning pegs came out regularly. The grassed areas required some TLC as thistle type weeds had taken over & not the best thing to stand on for us or the kids.

Each pitch has its own tap at the rear & the waste area is not far.

Our pitch was quite level although some arnt which included the grassed areas.

The toilets & showers are free & cleaned every morning. The entertainment in the club is excellent although the bar prices are not the cheapest, 3. 20 for lager & murphys & 3. 50 for strongbow. Also check your change, myself & my partner were short changed more than once!

There is a swimming pool which is split in the middle by glazing which gives you the option of 'indoor or outdoor', the pool is heated & our kids loved it.

ALL of the other caravanners we spoke to would not return to the site due to its 'tired' condition, which we agree with.

If you do decide to book, I would suggest you request the middle tier for tourers in case it rains, the top tier is for tents (even better).

The location is close to the beach (15mins) & there are 2 pubs opposite each other on the way which both do carvery meals.

If you fancy visiting other resorts but don't want to drive there is a bus service or train station nearby which is quite reasonable.

Not great at all. When we arrived the receptionist was having a cigarette outside the reception and asked me to wait for her to finish! Not the best first impression.

We were on the bottom touring field with hard standing and on first impression it looks more like a car park than a caravan site.

The toilet blocks are tired but to be fair were clean when I used them but we chose to shower in the van.

The grey waste point by our caravan was blocked with water balloons so overflowed and ran down the road when we emptied the grey waste. This was like this for the 5 days we were here.

On 2 consecutive nights I heard cars racing through the site In the early hours.

We looked at the pool in the sister site Golden Sands and decided not to use it. Again it looked tired and was full of teenagers dive bombing and the 2 pool attendants didn't seem able to control them, not suitable for our 3 younger kids.

The train station is close and we had great days out using the cheap train service to Torquay and Paingnton.

We won't be coming back!

Great site all round good for kids, dogs, fishing sea, very clean and very well run loved it.

Good for rally's, toilets very clean tarmac roads all around the site no track and ruts and pot holes good for wheel chair. Dogs welcome easy to find the site is right opposite the beach and has a sister park next door so you can use there club.

Lots of space very well run and very helpful staff. Shop on site I have been years before in a tent and have had lots of room,

The sister club has all statics but you are welcome to use all the facility's, pool, club and you feel welcome even though they are 2 different sites.
