We stayed at Parkland for four nights. All pitches have electric hook up, are very flat with fantastic views of the surrounding countryside. Facilities were spotlessly clean and showers were powerful with plenty of hot water. James the owner was very friendly; he gave us lots of information regarding the local area and what to do.

Half a mile form the site is a farm shop, call there for meat, veg etc. Excellent food all reasonably priced.

Kingsbridge is only two miles away, and from the quayside we took a boat to Salcome a quaint little village with lovely shops and plenty of places to eat or have a drink. Take the boat to admire the scenery, however check times carefully as the boat doesn't run when the tide is out. (obviously)

On James suggestion we also took the bus from Kingsbridge to Dartmouth. The road is very narrow in places so would not be nice to drive, however sit on the top deck and see the amazing scenery. Had fish and chips there in Rockfish, it has fresh fish, caught locally that morning.

We had a very nice time at Parkland, would highly recommend it and will definitely return.

Very friendly guy who runs this campsite, eager to help you in any way he can.

Nice clean toilets and shower block and a little play area which my 3year old really enjoyed, was very surprised to find out that he did not charge for electric as this is not normally the case in a lot of campsite I've used.

Kingsbridge is only 2 mile away and has a tesco and a morrisons supermarket there are also takeaways aplenty.

It is also I nice little town and well worth a walk around.

I did find Salcombe to be a very busy and pretentious place but Dartmouth is lovely and well worth a look.

Road noise! Having been kept awake until past 1am due to the constant noise which included motorbikes racing into the small hours and rumble strips directly outside the site, to being woken at 5.30am by the lorries and tractors crawling up the slight hill, we decided although we had paid for a full week we weren't going to stay.

We were slightly concerned from arrival about the road noise as during pitching the tent we could hardly hear each other due to the constant traffic. On speaking to the owner asking if other people had mentioned the traffic his reply was 'what do you expect, it's a working community'! As we were outside the school holidays I'd hate to be on site when the holiday traffic is at it's busiest.

The showers were good but small. I put my clothes in a carrier bag on the hook but not my towel and the towel was quite damp at the end of my shower.

Wi-fi reception very poor.

You can get to this site without having to go on any of Devon's narrow lanes, so if caravans are better sound-proofed than tents this would be a positive.

A really nice quiet site. All pitches have electrical hook up and on the weekend we visited it was very quiet so there was lots of room.

Great views over the countryside and a great location to visit the local area. Really handy for Kingsbridge which has a Morrisons and lots of other shops and facilities including a farmers market on every other Saturday.

The shower block on the campsite section was more than adequate. There were a couple of large shower rooms which I think are meant to be Family shower rooms but as it was so quiet we used them as the individual showers were a bit pokey. There were two loos and two showers in the ladies and the same for the men, and then two of these family areas.

Very powerful showers with plenty of hot water, they were spotlessly cleaned and there was loads of hand soap and loo roll.

We didn't meat the owner as my in-laws checked us in as they arrived before us but they said he was very friendly and talked to them about how eco friendly the site was.

We had wi-fi which was 5 for the week and the money is given to charity.

There are no facilities for rubbish on site, you can buy a bag from reception for 1 a bag or take your rubbish with you.

All in all a great stay and and a great little site. We would definitely return.

Visited last week of May, leading up to Bank Holiday weekend.

Owner very helpful and friendly with good suggestions for days out.

Easy access to Blue Flag Beaches.

Additional toilet block opened on Friday of Bank Holiday weekend. No electric razor points.

Owner has no recycling facilities and requests that rubish is sorted and taken to the recycling facility in Kingsbridge, one mile.

Morrison's Supermarket in Kingsbridge.

There is a reasonable children's' playground which did not appear to be used since there were plenty of open spaces for children to play ball games. During our visit there were many children who were well supervised and entertained by parents.

Site can be exposed to winds, but has fabulous views across the valley,and seasonal caravans had straps to hold their awnings down. Our awning survived windy conditions with just the normal pegs but will buy screw-in ones for our next visit. Some tents with the thin round tent pegs did not anchor very well.

Local pub in Churchstow, one mile, served good beer, cider and reasonably priced meals.

For those who enjoy walking there are a number of coastal path routes with pubs en route.

Excellent site and highly recommended with easy approach and access.

We had four nights here and really enjoyed our stay. The pitches are level and the grass was neat

There is a room for the kids with table tennis and a football table great if it is raining.

The site is ideally situated for touring local places and attractions. Being pensioners we took full advantage of our free bus passes and left our vehicle on site. There is a bus stop nearby that takes you into Kingsbridge where you can get a connection to many of the surrounding areas including Salcombe, Exeter and Dartmouth. The Tourist Information has a bus timetable for the whole area that you can purchase for 20p

The owner, James, is very friendly and informative.

If I was to write any criticism it would from my husband he said there were no shaver points. He used a mirror in the van as we had an electric hook up

The site is clean and well looked after I would recommend it to anyone visiting the area
