Reviewer: Arpaterson 4 reviews from this member

Stayed here in a tent on an un-serviced pitch for ten nights with a young family.

This is third time in total and the second year in a row that we have stayed at Oakdown and again we were on the original part of the site.

We received the usual warm welcome from the staff and were shown to our pitch, which we had been able to book in advance when making our reservation.

The toilet block has been refurbished this year to a very high standard. Even without the modernisation I think this is one of the best amenities blocks I have seen, especially if you have a young family. There is an area for families to shower as well as baths (albeit you have to pay for hot water for the bath). There is a large chest freezer and microwave in the dishwashing / laundry area and all facilities are kept very clean.

The children's’ play area is located in a secluded spot close to the amenities blocks. While this does mean not all campers are subjected to the noise form the play park you are unlikely to be able to see your children playing from the comfort of your own tent / caravan. The play park is well equipped and the site also has a smaller more modern play park in the ‘new’ part of the site in Beach Grove.

The site does run along the A3052 which while not very busy can seem noisy with cars speeding along it in the evening. Having said that it did not detract from our stay at all.

There is a lot to do in the local area, with lots of information on local attractions and places to eat available in the amenities block, and the site is an ideal base for a holiday. There was plenty to keep our young family amused for ten days as well good places to eat out nearby.

Stayed at Oakdown for 7 nights in June and I can only say what a great site this is.

The site fees for this site are very reasonable for its location.

We stayed on the newer part of the site (Beech Grove) which had the biggest touring pitches I have ever seen on a site. This part of the site was being looked after by Pete the warden and his wife and they were absolutely brilliant - they had so much knowledge of the area and the good places to visit and always a pleasant smile and time to stop for a chat.

Amenities in the block were superb and cleaned regularly there was even a large freezer and a microwave that are free to use and we found both of these really useful on a 7 night stay.

There are local supermarkets nearby (Spa and a bit further a large Waitrose). Pete the warden recommended a meal at the Hare and Hounds which is a short drive from the site (Reception gave us a voucher for this pub too) and the carvery at this pub is great value - Gets very busy though so may pay to book.

Sidmouth has plenty of shops and good pubs to walk round during the day.

The only minus point for this part of the site (Beech Grove) is some road noise, the owners have made efforts to cut the noise down which when fully grown will take this small nuisance away.

I will definitely use this site again.

I love this place, must be our 5th/6th visit in last few years. This time we were 2 other families, tent and caravan and we had an amazing time.

The facilities are top notch, 2 play areas, good size pitches and great walk (esp with dog) to local donkey sanctuary. Family bathroom is great enabling kids to bath and play whilst you shower. Washing up facilities good though sinks bit low in 2nd field.

Staff are brilliant and very friendly.

The only downside is the road, can be a bit noisy but wont stop us going again.

We have stayed at Oakdown many times any always been delighted with the service, the helpful staff and especially the fully serviced pitches (other sites should take notice).

The refurbished toilet/shower block is superb.

Good access from the main road and round the site.

Well placed for places like Sidmouth, Lyme Regis etc by car, bus, or if you're ambious on foot.

Visit the Fountain Head pub in Branscombe, a superb English pub. Try a pint of Jolly Jeff or have a good reasonably priced meal or bar snack.

The only sad thing is Oakdown isn't open all year.

Reviewer: Muskeym 5 reviews from this member

An excellent site. We visited this site for 6 nights in our folding camper. The staff were extremely friendly on arrival. We were directed to our pitch and the warden pointed out the facilities. Our pitch was near the golf course on the other side of the lane to reception. The pitch was big enough for our camper and awning and 2 cars if needed and plenty of play room for our 2 children.

Toilets/showers were clean and were cleaned at least twice a day. Campsite was spotless, bins emptied daily and lots of recycling bins. There were 2 children’s play areas which our children loved.

Although there was no pub nearby to walk to there was a lovely walk to a donkey sanctuary which was free.

Beaches at Sidmouth were 10minutes drive, great rock pools and a bit of sand but mostly pebbles. Lime Regis was not too far away.

Pubs within a short drive but were a bit pricey for food so we either cooked ourselves of had fish and chips from the chip shop a short drive away.

We all really loved this site for its space and lovely setting. This site is advertised in Best of British brochure so will try another site in another region.

Great Camp Site we have just returned from a weeks break at Oakdown. Our group comprises of two adults and two children one 11 and one 13 we all enjoyed the site we played golf twice and this was great and a good price.

The facilities were very clean at all times I had also seen the wardens cleaning the loos and showers at 12:30 at night WOW. The park is very close to Sidford and Sidmouth where we spent a few nights eating fish and chips on the sea front bliss.

I feel the only things that could make this park a little better would be a better equipped games room and a swimming pool but that is me being picky
