We initially aimed to arrive at Broadleigh Farm before the ďdeadlineĒ stated on the website, but due to traffic (and getting side-tracked on the way Southwards trying to find Diesel) we ended up anticipating a later arrival Ė so rang up to warn and they were very friendly and accommodating and advised us to call in at the cottage by the entrance.

You have to enter the site a very specific way, especially with the motorhome we have. The site instructions arenít the very best on the website, but we managed to understand them. After turning off the A380 onto Totnes Road (A385) you turn down Stoke Road at the Collaton Pub turning. At this point, the roads become more rural but easily manageable. Itís only the last 500m down Coombe House Lane which is extremely narrow, which would cause trouble if another van was to pass in the opposite direction. The vegetation was also overgrown, I think it could do with a cut back!

We arrived close to 7pm on a wet and windy summer evening and didnít get far into the owners cottage garden without being seen and a gentleman coming out to explain the ins and outs of the site. There are a few different classification of fields, and we stayed in the first field for an extremely reasonable £12pn with EHU. The field and pitch we stayed on was on a hill, but due to the heavy rain at the time it probably helped us with access.

We only stayed one night, so didnít really use the facilities or have a chance to get a feel for the site The toilet facilities appeared clean and well looked after, Elsan point available in the same block. I was however slightly concerned as the female cleaner in the toilet block just walked into the gents toilet area whilst I was using the urinal which I didnít think was very appropriate.

For the price, would definitely return.

We chose this site because of its proximity to some NT properties we wanted to visit.

It was quiet season so we were able to park anywhere as hook ups all around a large field. New toilet block very comfortable with good sized showers and toilet cubicles.

We were amused with the goslings running about in their pen as we approached.

The approach road is quite narrow for a car and caravan unit, and as with all Devon lanes, one has to be aware of traffic coming in the opposite direction.

Other than that would certainly recommend.

We've stayed on this site twice this summer as we enjoyed the first visit. The owners, Roger and his wife are lovely, and can't do enough for you. The showers and loo's were amongst the cleanest we've ever come across and the pitches were well kept.

You turn up and choose a pitch, but Roger will always give you a hand if you're not sure. Both times we stayed, we felt really welcome, and enjoyed the atmosphere. There are a number of fields to choose from.

The site is surrounded by farmland, and there are some really nice walks around. Stoke Gabriel is about 20-30 minutes away on foot, and there's a cafe/shack there if you want a coffee/meal/pint of local cider, to wet your whistle before you walk back.

Lovely site and area, can't recommend enough.

Just back from great 5 night stay at Broadleigh - would have paid for extra night but we knew the rain was coming and we preferred to pack up dry.

Lovely, spacious site - 3 large gently, sloping fields with no designated pitches - some pitches are flat, others on slight incline. Peaceful and very rural. We have a large tent but had plenty of room and were not cramped in any way. Most units located around perimeter of fields leaving huge space for children to bike ride, kite, play with balls etc. Owner gave us a choice of pitch and left it to us to decide which suited us best. Some groups pitched facing each other. The site is quiet & peaceful and generally, everyone's settled down by 10-1030pm - although, as always, there's someone that likes the sound of their own voice a little too much and carries on yakking loudly til midnight.

Shower & toilet facilities are excellent - although it would be even better if the water was consistently hot - generally warm but on one occasion cold but warmed up half-way through.

Contrary to earlier comments, we witnessed the block being cleaned daily not weekly plus there are mops provided for the showers and cloths for the sinks, for visitors to wipe down after they've used shower/sink. Sadly, not everyone has a high regard for their fellow campers and therefore any mess we found was due to others not cleaning up after themselves properly and not a reflection on the owner's cleaning.

Dish washing & laundry room great too.

Reception open long hours, sells farmer's cider, ice cream and has a freezer for your ice blocks. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly. Owner seemed chilled and happy for us to just enjoy ourselves.

Sainsbury's is about 5 mins away. Stoke Gabriel is a pretty little village - free WIFI available at River Shack Cafe - right on water's edge with crabbing & free parking - they've recently extended opening hours to those quoted on their website and do pizza/bbq nights as well. We preferred the beach at Broad Sands over Paignton. Just take plenty of change for the car parks in the area as they only take correct amounts. We liked Brixham - lots of little shops, cafes, restaurants. Paignton wasn't for us although the Crazy Golf on prom is good fun and worth a go.

We chose this area simply to meet up with friends staying nearby but there were lots of things to do that we didn't have chance to try. The kids loved the site and we wouldn't hesitate to return.

We stayed for 7 nights and found this an excellent place to stay in Devon. 'Lane' down to site is awful, width of the caravan and am glad we didn't meet another van on the way or I don't know what we would have done.

Showers are great, large area to change, hot, very clean and free. Toilets/showers were spotless every time I used them. Sites are spacious with electric hook up on most sites though a long electric lead may be required depending on where you decide to park.

Short drive to Morrisons beside Paignton Zoo and within easy driving distance to Paignton, Torquay and Brixham. Walking distance to Stoke Gabriel (along country road) where we spent many an hour crab fishing.

Would highly recommend and if every going to Devon again will stay here.

When booking this campsite I was told the price would be £11.50pn, the day before we left I phoned again to make the price was including the car the farmers wife told me it would be £11.00pn, I thought great, cheapish. When we did arrive the farmer was no where to be seen we had to hunt him down then when we finally found him the price went UP to £72 for 6 nights he said it was 7 night deal {bearing in mind we were only staying for 6 nights}! We had to pay it as no one else was open. There were Free showers which we thought fantastic until we actually had a shower then we realised the water didn't get hot. I'd rather pay the extra for hot water. The bathroom only got cleaned once a week also the reception wasn't open luckily we didn't need anything as we got it when we went out.

The location was great ideal to get to Plymouth, Totnes {which has a market Friday mornings}, Paignton, Exeter {great day at the races}, also we got the steam train from Paignton then a ferry to Dartmouth. So the location was really good. When you did want something from the farmer you could never find him. Then just as you have had the day out you get back relax with a nice cold beer sunbathing and the lawnmower comes out just cutting the grass in random places.

Stoke Gabriel is great for a nice walk into the pubs at night and the people there are very friendly. Wouldn't go again as we've seen it now.
