Well kept site with clean facilities. Owners were extremely helpful and full of information - copies of bus timetables, maps of Brixham, local tourist attractions, etc.

We booked prior to realising it was the weekend of the Brixham Pirate festival. However having a nine year old son thought it would be fun. When we turned up there were a few groups of pirates (middle aged re-enactment groups) on site, dressed up and flying the jolly roger. Unfortunately the noise of loud pirate voices and firing of pistols continued until gone midnight. I am used to camping on sites where there is the common understanding that noise is kept to the minimum after 10pm. I did complain to the owners the next day and they were going to speak with the group - there was not a repeat incident. However the following night due to the festival there was music off site going on till 11. 30. Both incidents out of the hands of the owners.

We went down to the festival on the saturday and there was a really good atmosphere. Definitely recommend and it was great to support the local businesses.

It was easy to get into Brixham, either by bus or approx 15 mins walk downhill. There is also a Spar shop within a 10 mins walk too. Plus the site is in an ideal position for the many Torbay attractions - we did Quaywest water park, Babbacombe model village, Bygones (Victorian museum), Smugglers and Pirate Experience, Brixham Heritage Museum and Dartmouth Castle. All recommended.

The site brochure does state 'rural'. However I have to disagree - three sides of the camp are next to houses and the other is next to a John Fowler Holiday camp (static caravans) which was at times was a little noisy at nights. We are used to a field in the middle of nowhere.

All in all a really good location, clean site and fabulously friendly owners. However in my experience not quiet and rural.

Just returned from a great stay on this super campsite. Owners were fabulous and couldn't have been more friendly and helpful. Site well maintained and toilet/shower block immaculate. The site is great for exploring the English Riviera. There is a local bus that runs every half an hour down to Brixham and lovely coastal walks too all within easy walking distance of the site. We've already booked our return trip!

We've just come back from a fantastic 5 day holiday at Upton Manor Farm Campsite. We're not big on evening entertainment and big plastic slides at campsites, we like clean toilets, hot showers and not much more. The site is really well looked after, the owner's are regularly greeting you with a smile as they restock the toilet blocks or organise the wheelie bins. We never queued for showers or toilets, despite it being August Bank Holiday. We found that you weren't bombarded with rules yet everyone was respectful and considerate. We paid a little extra for a 'hedge' pitch with hook-up. The pitches are really spacious and well set out with little fences, very useful for padlocking our bikes! The surrounding countryside is beautiful, we walked to Berry Head and watched a porpoise in the bay. Brixham is a 20min walk and the ferry is only 1 to Torquay. It's a very hilly area, be warned! We loved the hills and embraced them! Had a lovely cycle to Berry Head too and watched the Red Arrows over Torquay for the Regatta. On Wednesday night a pizza company set up on-site, they cooked handmade, stone baked pizzas and were really friendly. They let us go back to our tent and gave us a wave when they were ready! Highly recommend this place.

We had a lovely week at this campsite, all staff are polite and very helpful. The campsite and the toilets/showers are clean and tidy. There are many places nearby to visit, lovely location and lovely views, there are shops near by and big supermarkets are just a 10 minute drive away. Would definitely recommend and would definitely go stay again. Thank you to all the staff that made our stay enjoyable. See you again soon!

This was our first visit back in three years due to know longer excepting dogs (which I understand). We love Brixham and visit at least 3 times a year and have been using another which has become that bad it ruined our holiday in July.

We decided to go back to Upton Manor over the bank holiday weekend and was so glad we did. We arrived late due to traffic Friday but nothing seems too much trouble for the owners so it caused no problem.

The toilet and shower facilities were spotless, purpose built, modern and free. It made us realise the squalled conditions of the other site we had been visiting.

There is a huge chest freezer where you can leave blocks for your cool bags and plenty of sink to wash your pots.

The site was busy but I only waited once for a few minutes for a shower.

Location wise 15-20 mins walk to the harbour we use Castor Road coming back which has an incline but more than manageable.

The skipper (formerly brixham skipper) on Drew street is a short walk away cutting through the church yard. It offers a great Sunday carvery, sky sports and welcomes children we met a few campers from the site in there.

Simply FIsh in the town is a must. Best fish and chips by far!

The ghost walk is a great evening out and suitable for all ages.

We visit the Dawlish Airshow which was great and cheap to get to by train.

Brixham and Torbay has lots to offer. And staying at this site is the perfect ingredient for a fab holiday.

We will be back a few times next year (dog free but hey it's worth it).

Many thanks to the owners.

Just returned from a week at Upton Manor Farm. We have stayed at many different campsites all around the country and this was one of the best.

The pitches are large, especially the hedge pitches, but these get booked up quickly. The toilets and showers are clean and we never had to queue, even when the campsite was full.

It is about a 10 minute walk into Brixham down quite a steep hill. We had no problems walking back up, but I know other campers got taxis back to the site.

Brixham is a great place to visit and we only moved the car once (to go on an early morning fishing trip). A return boat ride to Torquay is only 2, and visits to Darmouth and Paignton are easy too.

We visited Greenway- the Agatha Christie house from Brixham via boat and returned by 1940's bus. Wonderful!

The managers of the campsite are really friendly and helpful and we will be returning again. Highly recommended!
