Can only echo reviews already submitted! Very new campers but found the site perfect for us, very quiet and friendly. On arrival James showed us to our pitch and said "anywhere there", pitches are not marked and got the impression as long as you don't take the mickey you can spread yourself. Trampolines went down a storm with the kids (aged 4 and 11)and plenty of space for them to play by our tent. Site was blissfully quiet past 9.30pm and sure we were first to bed and last up! Will definitely go again but will take more buckets to act as bins, site operates a strict recycling policy so easier to seperate at source rather than at the bins.

This was our second time at Parkland, first time was June and was very quiet with only 5 or so tents and 10 caravans on site, this time was much busier but still seemed quiet. Lovely kept grass and hedged sides.

Nice, friendly, clean, no pets allowed. Small site so not far from toilets and showers. James the owner is always on hand for any anything you may need or problems if they arise. 4 tramolines and small play area.

Close to the lovely town of kingsbridge which has supermarket, pubs, take-away's and post office etc.

About 15 minutes drive from Salcombe, Hope Cove and Bantham beaches and half hour from Blackpool Sands.

Seems to attract families and couples and we will definilty return.

This site is well situated for south hams, beaches & close to Kingsbridge for shopping. Friendly owner & uncommercialised. Children liked the trampolines, although no football area as quoted on website. However, we were there for one of the busiest weeks and James the owner was cramming tents in-approx 70 tents/ caravans when we arrived (website says 50 pitches). Tents were pitched in rows back to back up & down the field and some only had a 1-2mtr gap between them with no space to park cars. Also very little space for kids to play except for where cars are driven. This all made it feel a bit cramped. Also situated next to quite a busy road with hgv's and farm vehs out before 7am each morning.

I have to disagree with all other comments re toilets/showers. With the site being crowded the facilities were not kept clean enough. Plenty of toilet rolls & a squirt of bleach each day was ok, but stains on the walls and floors when we arrived were still there a week later when we left. Although hot water ran off combi boilers, hot showers were difficult to come by. We gave up one day, when the showers in each of the family rooms were freezing. At all other times the hot water was very erratic alternating between scorching hot and freezing cold. Also no shelves in showers to put anything on and hooks for clothes were above the doors, so out of reach to some people. Others also commented about the lack of hot water and cleanliness.

Recycling policy is good, separating all rubbish into separate bins.
Fridges & freezers were useful, as was microwave if you needed it.
Perhaps out of peak season when tents are dotted around the edge of the field as per the piccie on their website these problems would not occur. We had a great holiday in this area as there is plenty to do

"Why have we been coming back to Parklands for over 25 years ?"
Simple, it is a friendly, well-run site in an ideal location.
James Parker has created the right atmosphere and can always be relied upon for good advice on local events and places to visit. The site is equally suitable for both couples or families, without being over commercial.
The site location, just outside the attractive town of Kingsbridge, means that the superb coastline and beaches of the South Hams are easily accessible. Dartmoor is also close".

This is an excellent campsite. the facilities are great, The kids have pleny of room to play in and are completely safe.

We have been here twice now and will definitely stay here again.

We like this site because it is small quiet and well maintained. The owner is friendly and helpful.

There are also plenty of things to see & do in the area whatever the weather.

A beautiful site, excellent facilites, wonderful views, peaceful, pleasant and helpful owners, who could not do enough for you.
Site has many toilets and showers with no extra payments needed. Play area for children. Disabled facilities available.

Nearby towns include, Dartmouh, Totnes, Kingswaer, Brixham. Kingsbridge itself is a lovely market town, with plenty of pubs, and eating places. Fishing nearby.

A really picturesque part of the country and well worth a visit.
