Just returned from our second visit to Oakdown and again, what an amazing site! Staff again very friendly and helpful, even accommodating our request to extend our stay with them. Lovely site with a dedicated dog walk. Exceptionally well situated to explore the many assets the south west has to offer. Wonderful facilities, nicely spaced pitches so you don't feel on top of each other, certainly hard pushed to believe that there are 150 pitches at this site plus storage. We can not recommend this site enough, when we returned here, it felt like returning home. This site is superb with excellent facilities and welcoming staff. Looking forward to returning next year.

What a fantastic site. We spent 10 days here last summer in our tourer. The kids playground was fantastic and catered for every age and ability. Which makes a refreshing change. As my youngest has gdd. My eldest particularly loved the games room, fantastic idea. Shower block were lovely and clean, showers weren't too hot for the kids either. We had a super pitch and it really big and private. Nothing was too much trouble, the people who worked there would go out of their way to help you. A really lovely site and fantastic for people with families.

A really lovely site.

The amenities block was excellent, warm and with gents, ladies and unisex areas. Always near- immaculate with flowers on occasion and radio 2 playing.

Yes the showers are push button but it's a very light press and I found I could lean on it every now and then to maintain the flow, whilst washing our girls hair too. Not a problem.

Playgrounds were lovely, perfect for our children aged 5 and 7 and I think would be suitable for a few years yet.

Wardens were friendly and attentive.

Shop was well enough stocked and had all the little extras we needed.

There was some road noise but it was fine.

You could sometimes hear the donkeys but that was quite sweet.

I understand the cycle ban. As avid cyclists our kids would find the temptation of the flat roads around the park too tempting and would potentially injure themselves or someone else!

The Donkey Sanctuary is a short walk away but everywhere else would be quite a hike on foot. Lovely restaurants nearby. The Bowd was nice with a good play area but portions a little small.

Sidmouth a super little town, lots of shops and cafes etc. Lots of other sweet villages close by too.

Oakdown is a wonderful site. We only had one week there and it was excellent. The reception staff were very helpful. The lads that worked on the site were also helpful.

Everyone we dealt with were very professional and looked genuinely happy to help us with any problems. The toilet and shower block were second to none.

The play area for the kids looked fantastic. Loads of space for the children to enjoy themselves. Very tranquil.

I recommend The Masons Arms in Branscombe for a relaxing evening and great food and ales. Also The Hare and Hounds was lovely. Will definitely be back.

Well what a lovely site. Very friendly and helpful staff who went out of their way to make sure everything was ok

There are a number of nice small touches that make such a difference to a camping/caravan site.

Firstly the wooden picnic tables that are in the tenting area, what a difference these make, a place to eat or put stuff on. Every camper while we were there was making use of this facility.

Secondly there is a rotary dryer outside to dry clothes. How many sites have we been on that don't allow laundry outside and while away for 2 weeks this is so handy.

Thirdly small hedges between pitches and many having trees near giving some shade. Much needed on our second week.

Now on to the site itself.

The toilets and showers are spotless as has been said on numerous occasions and there are 3 toilets and 3 showers and a baby change cubicle which as previously stated is not sufficient if the site was full. But further down the corridor are unisex shower and toilet cubicles with three more showers and loos. There are also 2 baths which cost 1 to use. We were there for 2 weeks and it was vey busy over the weekends and never waited for a shower.

There are excellent laundry and dish washing facilities.

There is also a games room with a large tv, Internet room and children's park.

There is a well stocked shop and small cafe

There is a walk (off the main road) to the donkey sanctuary where you can wander round. We found this very pleasant in the evenings.

With regards to traffic noise. As someone who hates the sound of passing traffic I admit this could be an issue we were on Evergreen and the passing traffic was obvious but bearable. If I had been closer to the road I would have found it an issue but when booking you could always request a site away from the road. At night it was the donkeys braying I could here and not the road noise.

I would definitely recommend the site and use it again.

Reviewer: Harrys47 5 reviews from this member

Just returned from a nine nights stay at this camp site.

We travelled from the North using the M5 and it is fair to say that the site suggested using Junction 30 of the M5. This was a good move as our Satnav gave us junction 28, slightly shorter route but not really suitable for caravans along these roads.

Arrival at the site is easy just of the A3052.

Reception was bright and modern and the staff friendly and we were taken to our allocated pitch by Steve who guided us in and before I got out of the car he was in the process of un hitching our caravan, he was very competent but might not suit some people.

The site is flat and our super pitch was flat and had hard standing for the caravan and area for the awning is on chippings, which were a little thin as when it rained which it did a lot while we were there and the ground became slightly muddy. No pitch appeared to have a TV socket, which I expected with a Super pitch, the caravan Digital ariel was fine.

The well cut grass dried out very quickly even after really heavy rain.

The toilet block is very modern and very clean with piped Radio Two and always very warm.

There were three showers in the male and likewise in the female side plus a good sized disable shower room with bath.

The site was not fully booked and my gut feeling is that the toilet block may be inadequate if the park was fully occupied.

There is a great dog walking area out of the site and you can walk for miles, taking in the Donkey Sanctuary.

Sadly the great British weather was not so great, it was extremely windy with persistent rain ( I know this is uncontrollable but it is June )

Good touches on the site, disinfectant dispensers and good recycling in place. Really good play area for young children.

Well worth a stay if you like the area.

The only criticism I would make is that when you come out of the well-lit toilet block across from the reception the lighting is poor and perhaps a low wattage lamp could be installed. ( I was going to mention it to the staff )

All in all a nice site worth a visit.
