We stayed at this site for one week during peak season. The pitch was very spacious, we asked for a roomy spot for our family tent. The site itself is great, good drainage, we had a lot of rain, but that was no problem.

The surroundings are indeed lovely, considering you are so near a city. Staff was friendly. We noticed that we and also other visitors were not accompanied to the pitches. So there was quite some confusion at times, about where the boundaries of the pitches are.

Toilet/shower very basic, always warm water for the showers, the water for washing up was too hot, dangerous for children. The washing up area was smelly.

As I said, it was a busy time of year, so I will allow for that, but 2 women showers were out of order, cleaning was done once a day, with so many people that's not enough. We were unfortunate to have noisy neighbours, and we would have been very happy if the campsite managers would make a sort of late night (23. 00pm) check up round the site, to point out these things to their guests.

We did not use the pool or pub, so no comment there. The shop on site is very limited, but it's a 3 minute drive to Sainsbury's. Wonderful!

The trees on the campsite are impressive, beautiful! You absolutely get the feeling you're in the country.

This was the first campsite my family used for our new tent. We are total camping newbies. The site is very nice. Not massive (not that I would know what a large campsite is like though). The facilities are very good.

Plenty of toilets / showers. The take away smelt very nice. No idea though what the food is like. A small shop in reception is handy. Knowing Plymouth well, there is a large sainsburys not too far away. And even a macadeees if you want a burger / breakfast!

The site itself is very quiet and peaceful. We were not frowned upon even when our kids were running around making noise. Waking up to the sound of the birds was very nice.

A really enjoyable stay. Living locally we will use this place more often.

Even heading back this weekend! Highly recommended!

Arrived earlier than planned at site, but wardens happy to allow us to go to pitch as was midweek and not too busy. Stayed at same site last year and liked. River walk is lovely and goes on for miles. Visiting family-so convenient. Walked to Park and Ride 20minutes away. Doesn't run on a Sunday or Bank Holidays.

Toilet block much improved- would like to see some grouting in floor tiles though-germs!

Had a take away one night and was quite nice and better than cooking. Didn't go to the bar so can't comment.

Pitch very small. We reversed in and put up our awning and found a note on our awning on our last day, saying to go to office. It appears our guy ropes where over next doors pitch. We were only allocated half of the grass by the side of our pitch - didn't know this.

All sites we have stayed at in the past allocate one side of pitch to us but here you are in the middle [on hardstanding] and you get half of each side of this. It doesn't work if you have a motorhome as we found out! Make sure that you know exactly which is your space when you check in.

The campsite is lovely with stunning trees and well manicured lawns. We had a hard standing pitch which was well sized, we were only there for a weekend visiting our son who is at Uni so didn't put an awning up but looked big enough to do so.

As it was low season the facilities weren't open but this didn't bother us. We took our 2 Labradors with us and they loved the dog walk next to the river, this leads to some fantastic walks across the countryside, we were extremely lucky that we picked a weekend with wall to wall sunshine.

The toilet blocks are clean and smell fresh and were always empty but this was low season and a lot of the pitches were empty so can't comment what they would be like peak season.

The reception staff were very friendly and with the security barrier at the entrance to the site this made you feel secure.

The only down side to our stay was that the site warden shouted at my husband to get off the grass he was waiting with our two labs on leads on the camping pitch opposite our caravan while I locked up. This upset me as we are considerate campers, but to their credit they came across later and apologised, they thought we were just walking the dogs on the pitches and they didn't realise that we were actually sited there. This does show that if you camp in a tent it will be clear of any dog mess.

We would definitely recommend this site and intend to return here if we can get in later this year for our sons graduation

This site was easily accessed off the main road. It was well laid out with level pitches. The shower blocks, washing up areas and laundry room weren't very modern, but all worked perfectly and were kept beautifully clean.

The people at reception, which sold basic supplies, were very friendly and helpful. I adored swimming in the outdoor pool, so was very disappointed that it closed for the season for the second part of my stay ( I left on 19th September )

Although a barrier entry system was not in place, the site still felt reassuringly secure. It was just a short drive into Plymouth City Centre, but felt lovely and rural, Plymouth Theatre Royal was 4.9 miles away and reached by car in 13 minutes.

I would definitely stay here again.

Visiting Plymouth as relatives there, would normally stay in a hotel but wanted to try camping for a change.

Myself and my daughter stayed on the site but relatives visited, and all were made to feel welcome.

Staff very friendly and found the site very clean and tidy.

We were near the second shower block and found them clean at all times, also found very little noise later in evenings.

The pool was nice and even though cloudy days we used it and it was heated, baby pool was warmer and both were checked a couple of times by the staff.

Went to the club house and the Karaoke was not great, but then is it ever, but the tribute act on was excellent and fun too, only thing could fault was games room very old fashioned for teens but all games were cheap!

Definitely will camp there again, and try other sites, converted from hotels.
