This campsite is in a beautiful setting on the edge of Dartmoor and the site itself is an oasis. As you drive in you get a feeling of the variety of nature on offer.

There is a warm welcome from owners and staff who are also very helpful; nothing was too much trouble, helping us out with pitching, lending us pumps etc.

We stayed on a grass with electric pitch next to the well tended play area which was great for our children and even if you didn't have children I can't imagine it would be a problem as it is a sensible size.

The games and information room was very useful particularly as we had some rain during our stay. Toilets and facilities are well appointed and kept very clean.

There is plenty to do around the site with walks, nature and places to visit, all within easy reach and some within comfortable walking distance.

Added extras include availability of warmed bakery products for breakfast daily and Fish and Chip van visiting on Monday evenings.

A great all round site. Great!

We like this site and use it for last minute weekend get-aways. We have camped here in tents and caravan and had a good experience each time.

Wardens are friendly and happy to help with anything you might need.

Shop is very well stocked and not pricey. Toilet and shower blocks small but modern and clean.

Good play area and games room for the kids.

Close to National Trust's Castle Drogo. Drewsteignton about 5 mins drive for local pubs and shops. Chagford is about 20 mins drive away with an outdoor swimming pool and lots of shops, pubs, restaurants etc.

This site is a very pleasant and friendly. We stayed for 3 nights and thoroughly enjoyed it. The site is part of the camping and caravan club franchise, so the standards were fairly high in terms of service and cleanliness.

We stayed in one of the 'grass with electric' pitches at the far end, which was pretty quiet despite the playground being close by. We arrived during a high season period mixed in with half term, so their were a fair few kids running in and around the tents and caravans, but this was never a problem as they were really enjoying themselves and were respectful.

The showers and toilets were nice and clean. A mop had been left out for the visitors to clear up their own mess but as is always the case, not many of them did! A couple of times I walked in to see muddy and grassy floors, but I think this was more to do with people being lazy rather than the site owners not taking care of things. They did close both blocks for a couple of hours each day to do a full clean, but I would have liked to have seen a bit more presence on the checks before and after this time.

The campsite runs very close to a main road but never posed a massive problem for noise. Lots of lovely birds and the occasional comical Moo from a cow in the next field is what we heard most of the time!

Overall a great site which we enjoyed and could relax in, instead of worrying about late night noise and anti-social behaviour. Mature, respectful and friendly campers all made for a pleasant time!

Stayed for 1 night in late October, on gravel hardstanding with EHU. There were plenty of free pitches for me to choose from this late in the season, which was lucky for me because my 10m cable would not reach on my first choice.

Since I arrived early evening and left early-ish the next day I cannot give too detailed a review, but the warden I met when I arrived was friendly and the central toilet/shower block was very clean. The same block has a washing-up area outside under cover and a CDP around the back.

Cannot comment either about the surrounding area since it was just a stopover as I headed eastwards from Cornwall. The site is handily situated near the A30.

Nice quiet site, easy to find with 60+ nice sized pitches, some divided by hedges. Janet and Barry were most helpful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

Roads are quarry waste based so are a little rough for bicycles or disability scooters but are OK for cars and caravans.

Newspapers available at the shop along with a small stock of the more essential provisions (milk, bread, eggs etc).

Toilet facilities are clean and tidy though a little small for the larger person. Showers are operated via that infuriating little button that NEVER seems to stay in long enough. At busy times the water pressure is terrible so you do have to pick your times when the site is full.

Walking off site is very up and down so a good pair of lungs is essential. The walk to Drewsteignton is far from a stroll but most enjoyable nevertheless. Lots of nice smells for dogs.

We enjoyed it and hope you do too.

Having just read the previous reviews it is very apparent that a change of ownership has taken place, unfortunately, the fantastic sounding croissants & coffee is no longer available!.

We stayed @ the site in our Outwell Nebraska XXL. We booked a jumbo pitch and there was ample room however it was separated from the road by a 2 foot thick hedge which is by far from ideal when it transpired the road was a favourite of boy racers & motorbike owners. The speed they travelled formed a sort of vortex that sucked & flapped the tent all over the place and the noise made for a broken nights sleep every night, not good as we were there for a week.

Our friends were meant to be next to us but there was a mess up on the booking and they ended up opposite us which wasn't a problem but they also booked electric hook up but ended up without which was a mega inconvenience. When confronted about the mistake the owners, unfortunately, were far from helpful.

The freezer, a main reason for us booking there, was broken so we could not freeze our ice blocks. If we were told of this initially we could have tried to sort something out. As it was, the owners repaired a hairdryer 1st (priorities?)and then informed us that if we liked, we could 'rent' ice blocks from their 'spare' freezer. We lost a lot of food due to a simple fix not being thought of due to, it seems, an eye to a quick bob.

The laundry room was a nice touch but 3.40 is way excessive to wash 1 load of clothes. We didn't use the dryer but I assume that if you did then you could be looking at 7.00 for 1 washload. Take your stuff to Okehampton, there's bound to be a laundrette there or if you haven't got 2 toddlers like us then try & make do.

Whilst we were there a number of things went wrong & to be honest they could happen anywhere at any time but the response times and general lethargy by the staff and lack of information made for a pretty poor stay.

It wasn't all bad as the play area was good and the games room a good idea also. The recycling facilities were good and it was well landscaped too. It was very easy to find and the local villages were great, we can thoroughly recommend dinner at The Thatch up the road, even though it is a little pricey and a Devonshire Cream Tea at Fingle Bridge. The on site shop/office provided most essentials but not, I'm afraid to say, a welcoming smile.

It was our 1st stay at a club site and I have to say, we were a little disappointed. Hopefully the owners will learn from their mistakes & go from strength to strength. As for the motto, 'The friendly Club', hopefully it will be apt if you decide to stay there.
