Nice level pitches, but in a dwindling number as the park is been overtaken by static caravans.

Every night was a late one for most campers I believe as the noise from inconsiderate campers and the club house/entertainment centre went on till the early hours.

There seemed to be no rules to stop this. The sea was just a short walk away, 10 minutes.

Local shops were ok but needed to go further for meat etc. The warren is well worth a walk.

If you go at low tide then the walking is much easier and you will find lots of shells.

We arrived by tow truck as our car had broken down and the reception had closed, but after a quick phone call a member of staff came to our rescue and helped us to our site with all our equipment and tent.

The site was very family friendly the pitches were very good with great views. The entertainment was excellent, especially for kids our 2 1/2 yr old loved the disco.

In our experience the site and staff were excellent and we look forward to returning some day.

The facilities were adequate although the showers could do with a temperature control as they were a bit hot for very young children.

The beach was within easy walking distance and there is also a great little cafe by the entrance to the site that did a really good cooked breakfast and was very reasonable in cost too.

There is a train station a few minutes walk away, near the sea front that has good connections for getting to Paignton and other surrounding towns which was great as we were car-less for most of our holiday.

Enjoyable stay. Suitable family site.

The entire family enjoyed paighton zoo, many close attractions for all.

Clean and friendly site. South Devon is definitely worth a visit.

Stayed over the Easter weekend.

The reception staff were very helpful.

The showers were very clean and the hot water plentiful.

The pitch was big enough to take our 9 man tent, only downside, was there was not much room to park the car. It did not help that the next door tent had a 2 man on it, yet they managed to put their lines next to our pitch line! The people before moved over and we parked both our cars next to each other.

The shop on the site is shut, but their are plenty nearby to choose from.

You can use the facilities at the two other parks, but would not recommend it.

As others have stated, the touring section with the EHU are at the top of the park as statics are taking over. Because of the fewer pitches available, the showers etc. Are not too busy.

The non EHU are on a steep hill that has steps cut into it. Pay your money take your choice.

A lovely park and as this was our second visit, would return.

The reception staff at this park were very helpful.

The pitch was big enough for campervan and an awning.

The shop on this site was not open when we were there but there are convenience stores and chip shops near the entrance to the park so this was not to much of a problem. We also had use of the other parks nearby.

Their toilet and shower facilities were nice and clean and well maintained. The surrounding area was lovely for walking and exploring with great railway links to go to other towns. The beach and railway station was short walk away.

I will be visiting this site again as it was nice and peaceful with good facilities, plenty of shops, restaurants, entertainment.

Just returned from a week's holiday at Peppermint Park. Very disappointed with the site. It seems as if Static vans and lodges are far more important than touring vans and tents, which were all pushed way up the hill and crowded together, possibly almost too close in places.

Facilities were clean, showers adequate, but the toilets were far too small. The doors opened right against the toilet seats so anyone over a size 18 would have great difficulty actually getting into the loo!

There is a 10mph speed limit which was not often adhered to - rather dangerous as there were many young children (and some dogs) on the loose. No notice given that the small on site shop was closing for the winter, although we found the shops in Dawlish Warren plentiful, cheap and well stocked. Lovely fresh bakery next door almost, along with a good fish and chip shop.

Dawlish Warren itself was OK, nice beach when the tide was out and pretty clean. If you like amusement arcades and trains, then this is the place for you. Nice walk along the South Coast Path to Dawlish which was quaint but not a lot to it. Don't try the walk at high tide though!

Unfortunately Peppermint Park will NOT be on our 'Must go again' list.
