Spent 5 nights on this brilliant site. The fact that we got the best of the early September weather helped.

A very warm welcome on arrival, promptly shown to our pitch both gave a good first impression.

Facilities were spotless and well maintained.

The position of the site at the top of the hill out of Dartmouth gave superb views over countryside, but, as others have commented, leaves you a little exposed if the breeze gets up.

Out and about, there's a leisure centre next door (no pool as yet)and 2 supermarkets (Sainsbury and Lidl) within easy walking distance.

The park and ride next door gives easy access to Dartmouth with tickets priced at 5 for up to 6 passengers (so find a friend or 2!)

Dartmouth is amazing and offers a lot of excursions by boat (and steam train from Kingswear.

Plenty of options for eating out in town and we particularly found the Dolphin and the Windjammer good value.

Most certainly worth a return visit.

We visited this site last year.

The site was nice and clean, the people in the shop were very helpful and friendly.

We had EHU and we were put near the toilet block which as it rained a lot. Was very handy the toilet block was kept very clean, and at night was well lit up the only down side to that was there was no kids play area so they played football between the toilet block and our tent so had to move the car to the side as the ball hit the tent a few times.

There is a park and ride right next door which was very handy as we never had to use the car all week. And only 5 return and kids went free.

The shop did have a good selection of food etc and there is a sainsburys just across the road as well.

Dreadful weather, brilliant site!

Really can't think of anything negative to say, the facilities were ample, well made and well maintained. Everything was a bit better than it needed to be.

As we pulled up and it looked so close to the town centre I was a bit apprehensive, but it was nice and quiet and felt quit rural.

We didn't use the park and ride but it was very convenient, as was sainsburys just over the road.

The shop on site was open 8-8 and had large chest freezer for ice packs for a donation.

Dartmouth and totnes are really lovely, teignmouth and bovey Tracy well worth visiting.

We found Salcombe dull, every other shop was designer sailing gear. The ferry inn has lovely views but was staffed by disinterested teens so poor service and over priced.

Brixham was a little scabby.

Nice day at Plymouth for the fireworks, would have loved to try the lido if the weather had been fit for it!

Morwellham a lovely day out and good price compared to similar attractions like beamish.

Lovely area of the world, bet it's even nicer in the sun!

Excellent campsite, the cleanest I have stayed at, the owner gave us the options of pitches which is a first, the toilets and shower block is kept in immaculate condition, considering it is 17 years old it feels like it was built last year!

The on site shop was well stocked and the staff always pleasant, The only thing I can think of is that it could do with a play area for the children but there is one a short walk away behind lidl.

The town of Dartmouth is a very nice place to visit, sitting on the harbour wall crabbing just seemed to while away the time, the ferries over to Kingswear are very quick way across and give good options for places to visit, Paignton Zoo is a very good day out as well as the Plymouth Marine Aquarium.

One bit of disappointment was a visit to Blackpool Sands, the parking was expensive at 7 for the day, and the beach is shingle with two sand boxes, the beach was clean and there are no dogs allowed, but the shingle was off putting. Paignton beach was better

Nice site, bathroom facilities could not be faulted, greeted on arrival by friendly staff and escorted to pitch. This site is advertised as Family friendly, no areas for kids to play, no play park and constantly reminded by signs saying no ball games, how this is family friendly I don't know. It also seems that there are a fair few resident pitches who tend to disregard the normal rules of keeping the noise down after say 10. 30/11. 00pm.

If you want a site to get out and about to visit the local area then good location, if you want a site where you can let the kids of the leash then this is not really the site to visit. Be warned as well if you are visiting during normal times, park and ride at 5 for up to 6 people is good value and next to site, however during Dartmouth Regatta they upped the park and ride to 10.

Local Sainsburys, LIDL and petrol station so no need to stock up before arriving. Will not visit this site again but will definitely go back the area but look for a more Child friendly park.

We last visited and reviewed this campsite in 2010 following our first visit and said that we would not review it again this time as we had tried to book for 2011 but couldn't get in, and we really didn't want to share this treasure that we had found!

However, having visited another campsite in late August we soon realised that Little Cotton is by far one of the best sites we have visited in the years we have been camping.

The welcome received on our arrival was very professional but friendly and we were shown to a choice of pitches and even loaned an extension lead for our hook up as the electricity point was a little way from our tent.

The on site shop stocks most things that you need, seems to be always open, and even has a facility for freezing ice blocks, with a donation to charity.

The toilet facilities are immaculate no matter what time of day you visit, and it seems that whenever you visit there is someone in there cleaning. The only very small downside is that the showers are push button without any control of the temperature (like the majority of sites) but with a 6 year old who doesn't like hot water this can be a bit of an issue. However, they do have a large sink in the 'baby' room that you can give them a wash down in.

The tent field close to the dog walking field is great and, in general, our neighbours were friendly. Most people seemed to quieten down quite early so it was relatively easy for us to get out 6 year old to sleep, although we did need to ask one family with toddlers not to run around screaming outside out tent at 8. 30pm when we were trying to get our daughter to sleep.

We were very lucky that the week we visited was probably the hottest this summer, but we had a fabulous time visitng the local area, and still feel as though we have only touched the perimeters of this beautiful part of the country. Sitting outside the beach cafe at Salcombe with the mid morning sun beating down and the wonderful scenery, you really could have been in the tropics!

This is definitely a campsite and an area that we would love to visit again next year.
