To begin, arrived to a warm welcome waited five mins then shown to our pitch which had fantastic views across the bay to Torquay or Brixham and explained where all the amenities were, done by a very nice guy, touring pitches were all level(ish) but if your in a tent definitely not so, showers while clean with them horrible push button, work for 4 seconds then go off type and about 5 feet high so if your tall your have to duck to wash your hair, and whose idea it was to put the toilet roll holder behind you. I was not born in a circus? swimming pool was great with a large outdoor pool and a small indoor, both heated and was clean and well maintained, shame people arrive at 9am and reserve sun beds only to return at lunchtime, site needs to put a stop to this, oh and a snack bar with ice creams to die for, shop on site was well above average and not overpriced at all. The clubhouse was large with a good variety of beers and again not overpriced, the entertainment was not bad, same as your get at these sort of sites but a couple of the entertainment guys were in there late 60s and think its definitely time to hang up there hats as this did show, rather than say this is good, that is good, I was just trying to too give people a true insight into the site, to sum up a good clean above average site right in the middle of a great part of the country with Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Dartmouth all on doorstep a good honest 7-10.
We have just returned from 3 days at this site. I simply cannot fault it. It made up for the awful previous 5 days at Woolacombe Bay.
The customer service was excellent as were the facilities. The outdoor pool has a main pool and toddler pool, both of which were warm enough to swim in in September. Everything was clean and well cared for, although the pitches were getting a little bare after the previous rain.
Unlike the previous reviewer, I found there to help plenty of space for the kids to play.
There is plenty to do in the area. I hate to admit that we also managed to get a takeaway curry delivered to the site (someone else had a pizza delivered to their tent!).
We did not experience the entertainment but it sounded like the usual type of holiday park thing.
The shop was well stocked, even with camping spares, and reasonably priced.
The one thing I would say is that the children's playground is in need of refurbishment. However, there is a good range of equipment for all ages.
We visited this camp site on a very wet week in August! On arrival we were greeted very well and escorted to our pitch. The pitch was plenty big enough and the views across the bay were lovely especially at night. We set up in the heavy rain (which is new to me!) and my only criticism is that the site is made up of clay top soil which was left in a swamp like condition following the previous guests. The colour of the mud does stain very easily so be warned. However during the week the sun appeared occasionally and we had a wonderful week.
As for the camp site itself - the staff there were absolutely lovely. The shop was well stocked and was open at very convenient hours. The bars were very good especially the upstairs area - most nights the kids were all downstairs and the viewing area was perfect - you could see what was going on but it was nice and quiet - this was perfect for me! The shower blocks were very clean always and we never had to queue for a shower. There were also four family rooms consisting of either a toilet and a bath or a toilet and a shower - just perfect if you prefer a bit of privacy.
There is a bus service operating all day from the camp site to Paignton which was an excellent service. We love walking but the steep climb back to the camp site can be a bit much especially in 'horizontal' rain! On wet days the train from Paignton to Exeter was only £12 return for two adults and Exeter is lovely.
The surrounding areas are beautiful - even in the rain. I would especially recommend Brixham.
Overall I would thoroughly recommend this site and would gladly go back next year. The sea gulls were not an issue as reported and we had an absolutely lovely time despite the weather!
Just back from a 10 night stay in peak season. This was our first visit to Beverley park. We were in our Outwell montana 4 with extension and there was myself, husband and two boys aged 13 months and 4 1/2 years.
Check in at this site is at 12pm however we did see people sited earlier if their pitch was free. Departures are by 10am so its worth chancing it if you turn up early as they are very accommodating.
On arrival there are specific parking places to park up which can take caravans and trailers in which to wait whilst you check in at reception. You are then personally escorted to your pitch. The staff gave us a very warm welcome and gave us details of where our nearest amenities were.
The sad thing was our pitch was clay. There was pretty much no grass left on our pitch and it was bright orange clay which indeed did make a mess of the ground sheet! As it was nearing the end of the summer season and the terrible wet weather we have had this year plus many week long campers I guess there's not much that could have been done about this, most pitches were in the same condition. There are various sizes of pitch so do be sure to give the correct details of your tent size when booking. Our pitch gave us room for the tent, extension car and trailer but no other space between us and the road.
The site seems lacking in open spaces for children to play near to the tent but there is apparently a recreation ground outside the site but owned by them and a play park on site. As these were very far from our pitch I did feel our 4 year old missed out a bit on running around.
This site has stunning views of torbay. So beautiful waking to see the sea each morning.
The toilet block was always clean, has electrical sockets for straighteners etc. Supplied quite good hairdryers. 4 showers in the ladies but never much of a queue unless peak time. Block also houses good washing up facilities with provided drainers (handy) and the elsan point. There is also another block housing the laundry (3 or £4 a wash, 50p soap powder and 50p 10 mins for dryer. Free irons and ironing boards, tv to watch whilst waiting never really too busy open 9am-9pm) Also here are the family bathrooms which are the best I have come across and obviously quite new. 2 rooms with shower (large) toilet and sink and 2 rooms with bath sink and toilet. These were wonderful for my family. We never had to wait and it meant the boys could get a bath. There were no fees for this. They were also spotless on each of our visits. Very impressed!
The site has 2 outdoor pools (1 a toddler pool) with lifeguards on site. Lovely and warm in the water and excellent for children. Also an indoor leisure facility with pool, spa, steam and gym but we didn't use these. The Galley/ Gallery? offer well priced take away food, nice pizza and upstairs you can enjoy a lovely meal with views of the bay.
Evening venue has plenty of seats, opens at 7pm and kids entertainment starts at 7.30. The entertainments team have obviously been on site for sometime and my little boy really took a shine to them and enjoyed the dancing and games. Sandys shack offers a nice environment (similar to a preschool set up looks wise) and our children loved to play here and take part in craft activities which were around £3. It was open 10-12am then 7pm until around 10pm with access form the main evening venue. We only stayed for the children's entertainment so I can not comment on the adult shows etc.
The site has a good soft play area suitable for children up to the age of around 6 years. This was great to enable our todder to have a crawl or toddler around safely. There is crazy golf around £1. 50 and an arcade. The site had a real family feel about it. It was large but didn't feel like it. It just had a superb ambiance. We really liked it.
Like I say the only downside was lack of grass on our pitch and no open spaces around the pitches to play for our boys. We really enjoyed our stay and were sad to leave.
We would certainly come back. Its in a nice central area with loads to do nearby. We enjoyed trips to paignton, kingswear, Dartmouth, Totnes, Newquay. We had days out at paignton Zoo, a steam train and boat ride, a trip to Woodlands theme park which is amazing if you have children over 110cm plus lots fo other stuff.
There is a sainsburys just down the road and a new Asda a little bit futher. Local shop and chip shop and we likes Jades palace chinese take away down the bottom of the hill. Great beaches nearby too. Try this place if you have a young family I do not think you will be disappointed!
Stayed here for eight nights in early July. The weather wasn't the best with some very heavy rain and strong winds.
Bearing this in mind, Beverley was the place to be. The pitch we used was on concrete and was perfectly level. Despite the weather the grass beside the pitch where we parked remained firm, and any of the outfits and tents which were on grass did not seem to have any problems.
The site has two excellent pools, one outdoor, one indoor. The outdoor pool has a nice area set out with sun loungers but sadly we didn't have the weather for that.
One of the main attractions for us when booking was that there was entertainment each evening, with a bar and restaurant on site. We used the restaurant once and it was good quality bar food and keenly priced. The entertainment was of a high standard and our kids loved it.
Toilets, showers etc were clean and of a high standard. The bins and chemical toilet disposal were close at hand and everything generally had a feeling of being well run.
The shop on site was well stocked and had a hot counter with pasties and the like.
The site is close to the centre of Paignton and only a few minutes from Torquay. It is set in a quiet residential area.
All in all, a very well run site with great facilities, they just need to get the weather sorted!
