Lovely site, with some beautiful views of the surrounding countryside.
We were there during some very gusty weather, but we and everyone else were pre-warned by the site owners.
Sainsbury, Lidl and a 10 min. Park and ride facility were just a 3 minute walk from the site. A bus stop to Totnes was right outside the site, whilst a bus stop to Kingsbridge, Slapton and Torcross was just 5 mins. Away.
The pitches were very spacious and kept immaculately, with any rainwater draining away.
The site owners were brilliant !; they couldn't do enough to assist or give advice, and we would like to thank them for looking after us during our 7 night stay.
Dartmouth is a lovely little town, as are the surrounding towns of Totnes etc.
We would highly recommend, and will definitely be returning.
A lovely site with fantastic facilities, but the wind, we arrived in the heatwave and set up our caravan and awning, 2 days later the wind arrived and did it blow, we were putting pegs back in continuously, in future we will request a pitch along side the hedge.
We used the park and ride where you pay £5 and when giving your ticket to the driver can ask for up to 6 individual tickets, if you are only a couple join with someone else from the site as once you have your tickets you can travel to and from Dartford all day, no limit on journeys.
If you want to use a bus pass catch the service bus at the end of the drive outside Sainsburys.
Try the Round Robin trip, by boat, bus and train, it's not cheap but on a good day it is great or take the bus to Dartmouth then the small ferry to Dartmouth Castle.
If you want a special meal book on the Resnova floating inn, you are picked up by water taxi and returned after you meal which was fantastic, ours cast £35 each for 3 courses and drinks, then catch the 90 bus home using your park and ride tickets, another good place is the Cherub Inn, real ales and good food in a quaint old building, it's up the hill behind the building being rebuilt in the centre of Dartmouth.
Situated on the hill above Dartmouth this is quite a large site. We were on one of some three fields with a hard standing pitch but this was one of several rows of squares set in the grass so you had to walk across wet grass whichever direction you went.
Staff were very helpful and the facilities were excellent being plentiful, fairly new and spotlessly clean.
The site is next to the park & ride and, where in other places, we have used our bus passes on these buses, this was not possible here as you had to obtain a car park ticket to give the driver. Being mean, we walked into Dartmouth several times but the walk back up the hill was quite exhausting.
Sainsburys store is literally opposite the site entrance so shopping for provisions was simple.
Dartmouth was excellent and I could have sat and watched the harbour traffic for hours. We walked to the castle and along some of the coastal path so, all in all an excellent location.
We had a lovely week staying here despite some inclement weather at first. We were kindly offered a choice of pitches and chose the most sheltered one at the bottom of the field in the corner so that when high winds blew, we were still cosy. It was pouring with rain during the night, but the ground obviously drains well.
Everyone working on site was kind and helpful and they were flexible about our family suddenly coming to stay mid-week in another tent. The toilet block was incredibly well equipped - loads of loos, showers, private wash basins etc.
Despite a rally going on in another field, we never had to queue. Also, as mentioned before, kept extremely clean. They provide squeegees and plentiful cloths for visitors to wipe showers and basins in addition to staff doing a great deal of cleaning, too. Also plentiful washing up sinks and laundry facilities.
In the shop they happily freeze packs on a daily basis and simply invite donations to some worthy charity boxes - a generous move on their part.
With shops and park & ride close by, it's very, very convenient. We visited Dartmouth (having an excellent hour-long harbour cruise, not to be missed! Also delicious fish & chips at Rockfish restaurant), Brixham - lovely harbour area, Paignton - touristy but nice and Totnes / Dartington.
As we are involved with the Transition Town movement, Totnes was of special interest as an exemplary eco-town. Great flea market on Fridays.
All in all, we would not hesitate to visit this site again and to recommend it as a wonderful base to explore an attractive and interesting part of the country.
This is the second time we have stayed at Little Cotton and we haven't been disappointed. This is a well planned site with the tent area in the most sheltered part of the site. The caravan area is lovely with a choice of hardstanding (which are all level and flat) or grass pitches.
The site is spotlessly clean as is the shower/toilet block, there are plenty of showers/toilets to serve the site and the shop stocks almost everything.
The dog walking area is the best we've ever seen, clean, tidy, well planned and maintained.
The nearby supermarkets are very convenient, Dartmouth is a bus ride away.
