Great site with great facilities. Toilets and showers all very clean although showers are the push type so can a bit hit and miss with temperature if you are in there when it is busy. Baths also available if you want one. Launderette very useful and irons/ironing boards also available if you want them. Good shop and cafe - reasonable prices. Bar gets very busy and noisy so we tended not to use it.

Swimming pool well looked after and always busy.

They also had various other activities such as segway and falconry at an additional charge.

Staff always very friendly and helpful.

Pitches are a reasonable size and site is well kept.

This was our 4th visit to this site and we would return again.

Had 10 days at this site. Not very impressed was expecting great things

The pictures are deceiving the slopes are worse than they look

You are suppose to use breathable groundsheet obviously the person before hadn't and the ground was quite muddy and slippy so couldn't site camper the way round we wanted because car couldn't pull it up the slope which was our pitch

Clubhouse was loud and did not finish at 11pm, it carried on and then we also got noisy people coming back from bar, who had no consideration for other people who were asleep. The first night we had a group standing outside our camper at 1am having a loud conversation, hubby had to get up and ask them to move as we had 2 kids in bed. For the first 5 days it was this

Also teenagers hanging around the toilets at 1. 30am why, where were the parents?

A lot of the kids were running riot, I saw on several occasions 10pm at night, kids cycling round the park, no lights on, couldn't see them

If you are one of the slopes watch out when it rains especially if you use the breathable groundsheet, like we did as they request, the water did flood our awning we got to move all our stuff which is not good when you got a kid sleeping in the awning

Daughter used the pool very cool if heated, there were kids jumping in throwing leather footballs that hit my daughter on the head, lifeguard sitting there texting on her phone, sorry but this is a communal pool and certain rules should be obeyed in a small pool

Didn't use bar or craft centre cant comment

Most of the staff were young early 20's

Its a family site but there didn't seem to be consideration for other people

Too noisy.

Only good points for me was the good location within easy reach of paignton, torquay, dartmouth and totnes never had to travel more than 10 miles, sainsburys, morrisons and asda close by

Most sites have a 11pm curfew obviously not adhered to here and there is mop for cleaning up after you had a shower some people obviously couldn't be bothered so often had to clean a muddy floor before I could have shower

Some money spent on drainage and flattening some of the pitches would be a good idea and having warden walking round at night would be good only saw him in the day once in the whole 10 days we were there

Thought we were going to a nice quiet family campsite and it wasn't been on plenty of big sites but none as noisy as this

Not our kind of site and will not be returning

The site is a well run family site, lots of open spaces, ideal for families, it is near a lovely village called stoke gabriel, and from this location it is very easy to get to lots of different places. The staff are extremely helpful and friendly.

The outdoor pool is heated for most of the season, the numerous toilet/shower/pot washing blocks are clean and adequate.

I cannot comment on the bar, restaurant, or family room because we didn't use those facilities, the craft centre is ideal for use when it is bad weather, The shop has a good selection of food, toys, and camping needs etc. ,

The children's' play areas are safe, although with having young grandchildren we supervised the children on the rides/swings/climbing frames.

There is some lovely walks on the site. A separate area for dog exercise.

The laundry equipment has been upgraded for this year and is much better.

The reception is well stocked with leaflets etc for places to go, things to do, a pc for use with a small charge, they have discount vouchers for attractions for the asking. Throughout the weeks there are external attractions brought into the site, some make a small charge, others are free, it is up to the individual how much or how little you want to join in,

My only tiny negative is about how to get to the site - it is down what I would call a 'narrow' country lane, although it is a bus route.

Finally we will be going back again next, what more recommendation can you get!

Daves mate said it all really, the orchard field is lovely, the amenities block there is simply wonderful. They've got some 'pods' in there too, I had a look in one as some people were just setting up, and I quite fancy trying one sometime.

We went here at Easter as a 'trial run', Mrs V8 and I are getting married in August, in Newton Abbot, and we're using this site as 'home' for the week before and a weeks honeymoon after, yes, a camping wedding!The staff have been so helpful! We've been able to book four adjacent pitches for the weekend, where we wanted, the DJ/MC (John) has said he'll tailor the nights fun for us, they've appeared genuinely pleased to help us out. That makes a world of difference.

Situation wise the site is great for the English Riviera, Literally just up the road from Paington, with some great pubs within a few miles, Hare and Hounds in Kingskerswell-brilliant!

Our 2nd visit to this site. To be honest we only booked it as we couldn't get in where we wanted to go for Easter, so glad we returned here though. The site is superb and we loved it every bit as much as we did on our 1st visit.

Staff are very friendly and the toilet blocks are kept spotless. The newer block down in the orchard field has been very well thought out and the showers are laid out in such a way that your stuff doesn't get wet on the hanger, an idea lacking in so many places. The bigger main block, although perfectly adequate, would benefit from modernisation. It gets quite cold in there, when all the showers are on and the steam builds up it can get a bit slippy as well. Also, having the washing up sinks in the shower room just seems wrong.

A previous review mentioned sloping pitches. There are a few around but none were being used during our visit and I get the feeling they're used as a last resort during peak periods. The majority of pitches are level and of a good size.

There are at least 3 play areas dotted around the site in different spots. Ideal if you've got young kids as it means you're never pitched too far from one.

Pool area was tidy and clean but water was a bit chilly (I really don't understand why sites won't heat outdoor pools for Easter). Family and bar areas are very good. Good entertainment for kids and adults alike plus reasonable prices at the bar. Food in the on site cafe is the usual campsite fare (burgers, nuggets etc) but is good quality. Yes, the activities in the craft centre do have to be paid for but while we were there free daytime activities were put on for Sat & Sun including a falconry display.

Overall we really like this place and will be back.

From the moment we arrived everything ran very smoothly, the campsite is very well run. We'd arrived early having travelled a long way through the night but were allowed to park up the van until our pitch was ready and have a wander.

The site is quite large made up of several areas but there are enough facilities on each area to mean you are never too far from toilets and showers.

The facilities on our area were new and perfect. The site has everything you could wish for on a family holiday without the 'Butlins' effect. The entertainment was great and the people running the bar and family room very friendly and helpful. A lot of pitches are quite a way from the pool and clubhouse but at least this means you are not disturbed by the noise if you don't want it and we found it a pleasant walk back, as the site was well lit.

Stoke Gabriel is lovely, and there is a nice pub serving food. Torbay didn't seem to have a decent place to eat anywhere and the car parking for beaches soon mounted up -very expensive, which is a shame as the beaches were lovely. If you are not too bothered about the beach all the better as you may as well stay at the site.

The site is situated quite close to two supermarkets and is about 3 to 4 miles from the beaches.

All the kids loved crabbing off the jetty in Stoke Gabriel.
