Reviewer: Nicky Hatherell 16 reviews from this member

We loved this site - ok, it's basic, but that's part of its charm! And it was a sloping field, but there were plenty of almost flat bits to pitch on.

The views were wonderful, and it was so peaceful and quiet.

The ladies shower block (I assume the gents was the same) contained 5 electric showers and 10 toilet cubicles which meant that for the weekend we were there, there were often more toilets than tents!

The hot water (not shower water) was a bit hit and miss - at times it was absolutely scalding hot and at other times it was cold, but we can live with that!

We'll definitely be back.

As a avid camper for the last 20 years, I have been to this site for at least 12 times the last time being June 2012. This is site is a large field which is purely for non electric tents only. It is back to basics, there is a small shop on site which will freeze your ice blocks for nothing and has basic supplies.

The staff are really friendly and helpful. It is a working farm and so there is a small noise from the animals although not enough to cause your any annoyance.

There is one shower block with free showers, also a pot washing area and dryer area, small charge. There is a small childs play area at the bottom of the field. There is an excellent local pub about 1 mile away called the linny which does excellent food and friendly management.

The nearby seaside down of torquay is about 5 miles away, which is excellent, with a good selection of shops and bars, restaurants and a good marina area.

There are various boat trips to nearby brixham which is a quaint little village both well worth the visit. The best place to eat in torquay is called jingles where they do steaks, mexican food etc, it is busy all the time but excellent value for money.

This site is as I said back to basic, quiet, with excellent views of the devon countryside so if you are wanting an all singing, all dancing site this is not for you.

We were a group of 6 in two tents and really enjoyed the location and the site but the shower block, I don't think I have ever stayed on a site which has such dirty shower cubicles.

I would prefer to pay a little extra each night in order for them to be cleaned. Wear flip flops, crocs or aqua shoes when you shower and take a large plastic bag to put all your clothes and towels in as the cubicles are so small everything will get wet.

Shame really as the water was piping hot, but the sight of other peoples hair and scum, day after day was really off putting. (Why people don't rinse the cubicle after them is a mystery)

As much as I liked the site and the view ( which is spectacular) I would not go back unless the showers are updated or cleaned frequently

The location is ideal to tour the English Riviera while being based in the peace and quiet of the countryside. There is a large Sainsbury's just a few minutes drive away which is very useful as the shop on site is only open for a short time each morning.

The site itself is sloping but has enough flat areas for this not to be a problem. We arrived on Friday with a four man and a six man tent and managed to find a flat spot to pitch next to each other, it got quite busy on Saturday night but quiet again on Sunday and never felt over crowded.

There is a lovely play area which occupied the three and six year olds in our party. The washing up area is covered and well lit with ample hot water. There is a laundry room with washer and dryer which is reasonably priced.

The ladies toilet and shower block housed ample toilets for the size of the site. There are four showers which are free of charge, although one of them is very hit and miss. The shower rooms are quite small but there are hooks on the back of the doors for clothes (a plastic bag may come in useful). There were cobwebs in the roof and they are not sparkling clean but they are fine, there was always loo roll and hot water and I have been in much worse on more expensive sites.

I feel this site is friendly, relaxing and very reasonably priced. We paid 11 per night for the four man tent and 13 per night for the six man. I will definitely return next year.

The site is on a slope but this didn't detract from our stay and it had excellent soil/drainage for camping. We arrived the day after very heavy rain (in August) and had no problems.

Quiet site in lovely quiet surroundings with beautiful views. Although this is a working farm, no tractors started too early. The washing facilities were clean and the hot water never ran out. The powerful taps meant that a sink of hot water was delivered in seconds.

Terrific play area for young children in the corner of the field. Good area for things to do, with Torquay/Torbay a short car drive away.

Proprietors were friendly and helpful. Would happily go for a return visit.

This campsite has very good views of the surrounding hills and is far enough away from the main road that there is little traffic noise save the odd tractor. We enjoyed the owl sounds in the evening.

Toilet and shower block is fine, although shower space is limited and one shower lacked sufficient power and temperature control. There is plenty of space to wash up dishes and a laundry facility.

Also useful is the small shop selling milk and fresh eggs in the morning open between 9-10. Although this is the only time there is access to the freezer which means ice blocks can only be switched during this period.

The site is on a slope but seems to drain ok and was not especially busy even in July.

Certainly this site is good value if you just want a base to travel around this part of Devon.
