We found this to be a fantastic site. The toilets and showers were very clean, with the added bonus of a good laundry room - top notch facilities. Ideal location about a mile from the town centre and just a short walk to the cliffs at Sharkham Point and to St Mary's beach. Although it is sited relatively close to the town, it was far away enough to be out of the hustle and bustle. Will definitely be returning.

Just spent a fabulous weekend here. Immaculately kept site. Flat pitches. Spotlessly clean shower block and toilets. Very informative and helpful owner. Walking distance to Brixham, about 20 mins there, and 30 mins back via hill. Short walk to St Mary's beach. Will definitely be returning. Can't wait!

The site if you want friendly warm welcome, lovely setting, walking distance to Brixham town, the cleanest toilets and showers I have ever been into (I've been in a few), together with the best hosts ever minda and Brian, then you've got it.

If you want a noisy site with pool, amusement, a clubhouse and the most ultramodern facilities then use a chain like haven, park holidays, etc because you would be in the wrong place.

Site situation is about 1 mile from town centre all downhill one way, hence all uphill. Back, but the bus is unbelievably frequent from the site gates, so no need to worry.

Pretty flat site to all pitches apart from a few, we had a hedge pitch this time lovely big pitch a little bit more than standard but worth it.

We're going again defo.

Well kept site with clean facilities. Owners were extremely helpful and full of information - copies of bus timetables, maps of Brixham, local tourist attractions, etc.

We booked prior to realising it was the weekend of the Brixham Pirate festival. However having a nine year old son thought it would be fun. When we turned up there were a few groups of pirates (middle aged re-enactment groups) on site, dressed up and flying the jolly roger. Unfortunately the noise of loud pirate voices and firing of pistols continued until gone midnight. I am used to camping on sites where there is the common understanding that noise is kept to the minimum after 10pm. I did complain to the owners the next day and they were going to speak with the group - there was not a repeat incident. However the following night due to the festival there was music off site going on till 11. 30. Both incidents out of the hands of the owners.

We went down to the festival on the saturday and there was a really good atmosphere. Definitely recommend and it was great to support the local businesses.

It was easy to get into Brixham, either by bus or approx 15 mins walk downhill. There is also a Spar shop within a 10 mins walk too. Plus the site is in an ideal position for the many Torbay attractions - we did Quaywest water park, Babbacombe model village, Bygones (Victorian museum), Smugglers and Pirate Experience, Brixham Heritage Museum and Dartmouth Castle. All recommended.

The site brochure does state 'rural'. However I have to disagree - three sides of the camp are next to houses and the other is next to a John Fowler Holiday camp (static caravans) which was at times was a little noisy at nights. We are used to a field in the middle of nowhere.

All in all a really good location, clean site and fabulously friendly owners. However in my experience not quiet and rural.

Just returned from a great stay on this super campsite. Owners were fabulous and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Site well maintained and toilet/shower block immaculate. The site is great for exploring the English Riviera. There is a local bus that runs every half an hour down to Brixham and lovely coastal walks too all within easy walking distance of the site. We've already booked our return trip!

We've just come back from a fantastic 5 day holiday at Upton Manor Farm Campsite. We're not big on evening entertainment and big plastic slides at campsites, we like clean toilets, hot showers and not much more. The site is really well looked after, the owner's are regularly greeting you with a smile as they restock the toilet blocks or organise the wheelie bins. We never queued for showers or toilets, despite it being August Bank Holiday. We found that you weren't bombarded with rules yet everyone was respectful and considerate. We paid a little extra for a 'hedge' pitch with hook-up. The pitches are really spacious and well set out with little fences, very useful for padlocking our bikes! The surrounding countryside is beautiful, we walked to Berry Head and watched a porpoise in the bay. Brixham is a 20min walk and the ferry is only 1 to Torquay. It's a very hilly area, be warned! We loved the hills and embraced them! Had a lovely cycle to Berry Head too and watched the Red Arrows over Torquay for the Regatta. On Wednesday night a pizza company set up on-site, they cooked handmade, stone baked pizzas and were really friendly. They let us go back to our tent and gave us a wave when they were ready! Highly recommend this place.
