We spent a wonderful 9 days at Little Cotton Caravan Park. The site accommodated caravans and tents.
When we arrived, we were asked by Paul, which plot we would like and the first place he showed us was perfect, facing to the West. He was very flexible about where we positioned the car. We had a lovely spot on the grass, which was very dry, so there was no problem and we had plenty of space. The hard standing areas around the outside of the field were less spacious.
The views of the surrounding hills were delightful. The site was immaculately kept and the grass was kept short and neat.
The toilet and shower block were the best I have ever seen, spacious, and in immaculate condition all the time. I only had to queue once for 5 minutes, and the site was quite busy. There were 8 showers and several private washing cubicles. There were places for hanging clothes and towels, and a seating area in the shower, partitioned off, so clothing remained dry. The showers were push button and just the right temperature.
The shop was comprehensive stocking useful camping and caravan supplies and basic food.
There was not playground for children, but as the site was so lovely and quiet, children could play safely without gimmicks.
There was a lovely relaxed atmosphere on the site, very few rules and this worked really well.
Little Cottons is very conveniently placed for Dartmouth, a half hour walk, down and up a very steep hill. There is a also a bus stop nearby and a park and ride. It was also very handy for Sainsbury's, which was opposite the site, but you would not know so, as the site is set far back from the road, so is very peaceful.
We would love to go back every year. This is the first site we have felt that way about. The South Hams area is outstanding. We were disappointed to hear that the site may be sold for houses. We hope not. Other campers felt the same way too. Obviously, it is a very successful Caravan and Camping Site and it would be such a shame to lose it. I cannot recommend it highly enough
Very very nice campsite which we have visited now a few times. Washing facilities are excellent and extremely clean. We stay in the camping field which is quiet and peaceful. The whole site is very well maintained yet not 'stuffy' at all. You are left to get on with your own thing but feel that things are being well looked after. You can get the park and ride from outside the site into Dartmouth. Dartmouth is beautiful and well worth a visit. This is a site we will always return to. Beautiful area to visit and perfect campsite!
Having just spent 5 nights at this campsite, the only thing which puts me off returning is the battering our tent took on the night before our departure. We were placed on the top field as it was the music festival weekend and we were told it would be quieter than on the tent field. The facilities are immaculate and there is a frequent bus service from the estate opposite the petrol garage (90) which ran at quarter hour intervals to Dartmouth.
If I returned to this site, I would ask for a pitch in the tent field as I was told it is always windy at this site.
We visited Little Cotton in the very cold Easter week and were delighted to find it so welcoming. The ten field was sheltered and although the field itself seemed to undulate all the pitches were flat and spacious. The showers/toilets were exceptional, very clean and warm, the showers were great with plenty of room in the cubicles. The site staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. The site itself is ideally located opposite Sainsbury's and also next to the Dartmouth park and ride service but despite it being easily accessible there is very little road noise. The dog walk was fabulous, lots of space and places for them to explore. I would highly recommend the site and we will definitely be going back in warmer weather.
First time down this neck of woods and I think we picked a good site. Great open feel about it (not hemmed in by hedges, my pet hate!). Lovely clean showers, hot water, laundry. Pitches well spaced out and level.
Front desk, really friendly and helpful.
We walked into dartmouth (about 15-20mins). Loads of cafes and pubs and we where lucky enough a food festival was on at time.
Right outside site a Sainsburys which is open till 9pm, so food and booze on tap if you forget.
We were recommended Little Cotton by friends who had been there a few times with their caravan. We were lucky, as we just turned up having planned to stay at a site near Totnes, which was awful, so headed to Dartmouth instead.
There was one hard standing place left, so we paid a fair price for two nights, and were happy to be right next to the toilet block.
The toilet, shower, and washing up facilities here are excellent, modern, clean and spacious.
There is a Sainsbury across the road, which is a real bonus, and the park & ride which takes you into Dartmouth is in the adjoining field.
You need £5 change to buy a ticket for the bus, and the driver won't take cash.
So we walked into town, which is fine going down, but a real climb coming back up. Saying that, we would do it again.
Dartmouth is lovely, nice shops and pubs. Little Cotton is a great site, and it will be one of the first sites we return to next year.
