A big static park with a small hard standing touring area. Toilets and loos are kept spotless as are the rest of the touring amenities. Huge warm pool and lots of Haven things to do.
Out and about there are many places to visit with in easy reach of the park. The road to the park can be quite tight in places with lots of parked cars and watch out for the bridge.
We have been there a few times and would go again.

We stayed over Easter and all I can say is its not good, ok not all bad but here goes, Very expensive and cash register keeps going for the full holiday
Touring pitches are very small as said before. They are however immaculate, the warden is great, and the showers were very hot and spotless
The touring park sits on the roof of the main complex so is extremely noisy up till 12 at night, food outlets are expensive and of very poor standard, on the plus the kids enjoyed themselves.

Very friendly warden. Very clean, but cold toilet block. Touring pitches were very small. Despite being charged extra for a van over 21 feet, it still hung over the end of the pitch! I have never been so packed in and they felt like they were on either side of a road, which actually, they were.
If you like space and safety for your kids to play, my opinion, don't go here. When the highlight of the holiday is a Starbucks, you know some thing's wrong. Leave this site to the statics.

We stayed on the permanent hardstanding pitches and these were a bit uneven but of a generous size. The toilet block was immaculate with plenty of showers and toilets. An added bonus for us with a toddler was that there was a family bathroom available. You had to pay a 5 deposit which was returned at the end of the stay.

Devon Cliffs is a huge site and some of the statics seemed a long way from the entertainment complex up very steep hills. The swimming pool was clean with plenty of family changing rooms available. A small gripe is that you have to pay a pound to use a locker. The new Starbucks was a surprise extra touch but it would have been nice if it had stayed open later than 5pm. The on-site supermarket was expensive, no surprise there, but there is a 24 hour Tesco's very near.

Exmouth itself is a lovely seaside town with a small shopping centre.I would recommend a trip to Paignton Zoo, expensive but well worth it.

I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive about Devon Cliffs given some of the reviews but I was pleasantly surprised.

Just returned from a week at Devon Cliffs, we went off season due to having a two year old and work commitments. We arrived at 10.30pm on the Monday night and checked in at the security gatehouse, who were very helpful. Had no problem finding our way around the site at all. The entertainment complex was very good, with lots to do for the little ones and a great indoor / outdoor pool.

The touring caravan field looked very good, but a little compact to my inexperienced eyes.

The beach was an easy walk from our caravan and very good for children as its enclosed by cliffs, the sand was clean and with the sun out was very nice indeed.

We found all the staff very helpful, and the on site supermarket was a welcome bonus.

The site as a whole has all the usual Haven facilities, pool, bars entertainment and amusements and you can also walk down to a beach that I think is owned by the site.

The camping facilities consist of a level field at the top of the (quite hilly) park with portable shower and toilet blocks at one end. The water taps are also here. No EHU available for tents and also no permanent paths or driveways as I think they only use this field in peak season - which I think meant that the rain caused them more problems in the wet weather than you would get on some other sites. It cost us 20 a night although I think some people who had booked further in advance had paid a little more.

Because of the weather the half of the field designated as a car park was all churned up and cordoned off, they put down wood chippings to help create a path to the toilets although it was still quite muddy.

Weather aside (which I know cannot be helped!) it was probably just not my type of camping but as a base for the holiday park and the area it would be ok but it's not a permanent site and does feel that way. The touring caravan facilities seemed very good and were always spotless. The pitches for these were in a different part of the park right by the main facilities.
