Reviewer: J bonus 5 reviews from this member

Good clean site but quite expensive out of season. Some sites in the area with fully serviced pitches are nearly half the price!

Low season used to start Sept 1st, now the 21st!

Friendly helpful staff always available if needed.

Toilet and shower block very clean and tidy.

The site wifi at 2 a day is very poor even outside the caravan, as slow as the old dial up speed sometimes couldn't access at all.

Hedge trimming and grass cutting went on until 5 o'clock which was annoying if people wanted to sit outside to relax.

Overall a good site with just a few niggles.

Management response: Thank you for your review, we are very pleased that you've taken the time to provide us with some constructive feedback,

When installing the Wi-Fi we knew it would possibly be a problem at Oakdown before installation, unlike some of our competitors we have many trees that provide fantastic shelter and screening, this does cause a few issues with coverage and is something we are working hard to improve.

Again due to the vast amount of hedge screening we are forced to tidy the hedges during the dry periods as we have proved that when pruning in the winter months it churns up the grass which struggles to repair in time for the spring.

Our first drop down in the low season has always changed around the 31st Aug/1st Sept and has done again this year, if you choose to stay with us from the 21st September you'll find us very competitive, we hope to welcome you again soon and delighted to announce that we've just been awarded the AA Best Campsite for Great Britain 2015.

Another enjoyable visit to Oakdown and I endorse all the positive comments below. This time we asked for a pitch away from the road as we have previously found the noise from this busy A road intrusive. We were put in Sycamore on a serviced pitch which was perfect and much more peaceful.

The Sidmouth Hopper now stops at Oakdown which is good although we didn't use it. It is free but has limited seats as it is a minibus and being free, is in demand. We were able to easily park our motorhome in the Manor Road car park for a pound an hour which I thought was very reasonable.

Sidmouth, lovely as ever, Budleigh Salterton, delightful and you can easily park a motorhome right next to the beach in the Lime Kiln car park.

Shame we had to come home! We will definitely be back. Again!

What a lovely site, so well kept, loads of room between units, room to manuver. The staff were very helpful nothing was to much trouble, arrived early and was allowed on site, not like some big commercial sites I could mention!. If like us you have a dog you will not be disappointed with the dog walking if you take the donkey sanctuary walks, but to be fair there are National Trust woods and walks everywhere.

We did not have children but had a walk around the site and they are certainly well catered for, all in all a very nice we'll run and kept site in a great location.

A really good caravan site.

There are statics on this site but are placed in very attractive areas.

The staff are very helpful, when you arrive you are taken to your pitch and if needed help given.

Toilets, shower etc great clean and modern

Very pretty site very good sized pitches.

Sidmouth seaside town is great.

This is our 3rd or 4th visit to Oakdown we used to stay in the statics years ago but now have a touring caravan. It is a fabulous site so quiet and well kept. The facilities are second to none always spotless and I never had to queue for shower and we came over the Easter holiday. The staff could not be more helpful and nothing was too much trouble. We have booked to come back again this October and can't wait. When we can no longer tow we will store our caravan here and stay at this site all the time love love love it. Sidmouth is only a short drive down hill and has lovely shops and cafes, we also go to Lyme regis which is not too far away. The hare and hounds towards honiton down lanes does a fabulous carvery and is a ten minute drive away.

Firstly, what a lovely well kept place.

Lovely flat, level camping site with excellent facilities, the amenities block. Well. Excellent, as well as mens and ladies toilets and showers there were family rooms too with a bath and a shower which I thought is a good touch, and always been cleaned, with good washing up facilities, and laundry too. Each pitch is protected by bushes and trees and you have your own space.

Very small shop on opposite side of park, it only sells essentials and the nearest shop must be about 2 miles away (but don't quote me on that).

You are about 2 miles from sidmouth and about 5 from seaton and both towns are really nice places.

For the kids there is a small play area and a tv room with pool table and books to read.

The only thing I can fault on is you hear road noise, but that was where we pitched, I cant speak for anyone else I would recommend this site and I would come here again just not by the road.
