Just returned from a 10 night stay at this park. The park was very easy to get to, just off the main road and staff very helpful. Toilets where clean and so was the park. Only used club once so can't really comment. Kids used pool most days, was a bit dirty with leaves, think they only clean it in the morning, but kids didn't mind. Pitches where good size and easy to get in to. Playground was a bit small, my two missed not having swings, but all in all a good little park and would return.

We have been to this site seven times, which will tell you a lot about the facilities. The staff are great, friendly and very helpful. My wife and I love it here. We have been coming here for three years. Toilets are clean and showers are good. The bar when open is very relaxed and good. Steve the barman is great. We will be back agfain this year in summer and autum. Cant rate it high enough.

A great base for all things plymouth and devon

Spent 3 nights at this sight early in Sept, blessed by lovely weather, had phoned the day before to check they had vacancies which they did. Owing to other commitments I didn't book and unfortunately when we arrived we were told we couldn't stay for the week only for 3 nights as fully booked over the weekend. It appeared that because the weather was so glorious everyone had decided to book with them. This meant we couldn't avail ourselves of the special offer for the over 55s of £85 pw including hookup. I did suggest that we stay for the 3 nights and went away for the weekend and continued our week the following Sunday but unfortunately they wouldn't accept this saying that the 7 nights had to be taken consecutively.

I found the site to be very clean and tidy. We were on a standard plot, very quiet at night. Toilet blocks very satisfactory, but could have done with a duck board to stand on after coming out of the shower.

We ate one night in the clubhouse and had the evening special which was fine. The clubhouse is a bit dark and dated but I felt for what one was paying it offered very good value for money. We didn’t use the park and ride instead we used the no 50 bus which ran very close to the site and every 15 minutes, making very good use of our bus passes.

Didn’t use the on site shop but walked across to the Sainsbury’s superstore. I would definitively used this site again, making sure I book it next time. I found the staff very friendly.

This site has an excellent location just of the A38 which makes it ideal for touring the area. Its just off an industrial estate but once you are on the site you wouldn't know as its very quiet with lots of trees surrounding it.

There is a park and ride which was about 20 mins walk away, the shortcut was too wet to use due to the heavy rain. Unfortunately the park and ride has a height barrier so we couldn't drive the motorhome there. It was also quite expensive compared to other park and rides we have used (£2.20 per person) and I paid full price for my daughter.

We paid £4 per night extra for a superpitch. I am not sure it was worth the extra, it was level and spacious but so were many of the other pitches. The water and draining point were in front of the pitch not on it and I can see that this prevents the risk of hitting them with your outfit but we did see other people on the standard pitches directly behind ours using them. Also there is no nice stretch of grass at the side to sit out and the caravan at the side of us was very close once it had its awning out.

The toilet blocks are clean, the one farthest from reception is the better of the two. The main problem was there was nothing to stop the floor getting wet which makes getting dressed more tricky. As they have big cubicles containing a sink and toilet then I went in there to get dry after showering which worked ok. Improvements I would like to see are better lighting in the showers at night and a concrete path from the superpitches to the toilet block as you currently have to walk across the grass.

The club house and games room are very dated. The staff are very friendly and the food was ok but the promised entertainment never happened and it wasn't the sort of relaxing place we would want to sit and drink in so we tended to give it a miss.

We didn't use the pool but it looked fine.

We would visit this site again due to the central but quiet location

After turning off opposite a retail development, Riverside just seems to magically apear when most will be reaching for the map.

I loved the enclosed nature of this site, surrounded by high level trees, shelter certainly isn't a problem.

Facilities are clean and staff are friendly.

The on site bar is always a welcome addition for when you just can't be bothered to go back out.

A perfect city break with a touch of escapism. Would return time and time again. Dog friendly too!

This is the eleventh year we have stayed at this site. Both convenient for the A38 as well as Plymouth City itself.

Welcoming reception and facilities for late comers overnight before going to pre-booked pitch.

From this site it is easily accessible to the Park and Ride and roads into Cornwall and various scenic parts of Devon

The site is well kept and we have seen quite a few changes over the years. There is now a residential section on the site which is not intrusive to the site.

All the showers and toilet areas have been refurbished and there is now facilities for Motor homes and caravans with tanks and direct water supply as well as waste water outlets.

Level pitches on grass, Hard standing and gravel are well maintained and plenty of room between units.

A well kept pool which is deep enough to stand up in and swim. Heated and alongside is a small child's pool. Nice laid out patio area.

The restaurant is very welcome with a varied menu of freshly cooked food. Our highlight of the week was the Sunday Carvery which is a really good value for the price and includes sweet.

The Bar is well stocked and run by Steve, offering a full range of cost effective prices. Entertainment is laid on at various evenings of the week.

We shall continue to use this site in future years.
