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.

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Parkland and I have to say that this site is fantastic! We had the friendliest welcome from the site owner who gave us a guided tour of the site and its facilities, he couldn't do enough for us. The site itself has good access and is very level with well kept grass (like a fairway on a golf course).
The facilities are exellent, the showers are the best I've ever had with hot water 24/7. They also have a fridge/freezer and microwave for anyone on the site to use. The site is lovely and quiet with lots of room for kids to play, they even have a trampoline! So if you are thinking of taking a holiday in South Devon look no further than Parkland... best site ever!!!

Excellent campsite. We were made very welcome by the owner in our little two man tent. We stayed just one night but managed to have two showers the facilities were that good. Showers free and powerful with lovely hot water and big showerheads. Also lots of loo roll in toilets!
Well situated for easy access to surrounding coastline and countryside.
12 per pitch per night but worth it, would certainly go back.
