Just returned from a 2 week stay here- a real gem.

Plenty of things to do, especially for the children- 2 play parks, and an adventure play area, woodland walks, letter boxing, outdoor pool, games room, even a craft room where you can paint pottery or just paint/colour pictures.

Showers were lovely and hot, and plenty of them, one block recently updated, which included a family bathroom and a family shower room, and the other 2, a little dated but certainly fine for use.

Good laundry room, with plenty of washing machines and driers, generally busier in the mornings but fine after lunch time.

Washing up areas in the male or female shower blocks in the main camping field, wasn't a massive issue, as by new shower block they were outside. Would have been easier if all the washing up areas were outside, but on days when its raining, it was ideal.

Staff are very friendly and helpful, always stopped for a chat.

Site kept very clean. Maintenance guys always about and making sure everything was at it's best.

Very quiet site at night time, no issues with noisy neighbours, or from the hayloft bar area. Security guy at night time if any issues, but guess he must be bored as never any need for anyone to trouble him!

Pitches are really big, very impressed and plenty of room around each pitch, so felt we were not invading someone elses pitch.

We would definitely go back to this site again, had a brilliant time.

Just returned from a week long stay at this park and what a joy. We arrived and within 5 mins were guided to our pitch (num 18) it was huge, I suppose we were lucky because it wasn't so busy. Some of the pitches were seriously sloping and I think you would have a problem keeping your drink on your table on them a bit challenging.

The park itself has lots to entertain the children including 3 different parks, the pool, which we only used once because we didn't really get the weather and some amusements including pool tables.

Again washing up facilities for me was not an issue as I always do them when we are away and there are a couple of different places depending on where you are on site including some in the laundrette.

Showers were great, in the main camping field ones which I used all the time the water was hot and controllable, everywhere was kept clean and tidy and whilst we were there the grass was even cut round site. The shop was well stocked and not bad prices, reception very helpful and friendly, Hayloft we only used one night but was good fun for the kids and for the adults to relax in.

Out and about lots and lots to do woodlands was a good day out, Brixham harbour for crabbing and lots more besides

Cannot fault this site at all for me and the family even though we didn't have baking hot weather 10/10

My husband and I spent the bank holiday weekend here with our friends. The site itself is set in a good location not far from Paignton Zoo and Paignton town.

Upon arrival the staff were friendly, and we were quickly shown to our pitch. We initially thought that the pitch sizes were generous as we were told that we were not allowed to park our vehicles in the space lined out between each pitch as this was there for fire saftey.

This only seems to apply when the site is not that busy because as soon as the site started to fill up these spaces were taken up by cars which then made the pitches feel very cramped.

The facilities were clean but as mentioned in many of the reviews they are very dated. The showers are push button and do not last very long, they are also not temperature controlled and on one day the water was freezing.

Apparently this was due to us having our shower late in the morning! The washing up facilities are also in the toilet and shower blocks which is not very practical, my husband certainly had a shock when he pulled back the shower 'curtain' to find a woman washing up with her husband!

I am not able to comment on the restaurant/swimming pool or shop as we did not use them. This was the first time that we had used this site and it will be the last.

Whitehill country park an excellent place to go, we visited over the easter / bank holiday week the site is beautiful,well kept, clean and tidy, the pitches are large and well laid out,

The toilet block was cleaned regularly and it has been well thought out with good size shower cubicles, which are designed so your clothes don't get soaked, with enough room to take a small child in with you.

The shop is well stocked and the haybarn bar is great with decking area, and children's activity room separate.

The pool was lovely and kept clean, you can walk straight to it off the site, and there were plenty of sun beds, loads to do for the kids with nature walks etc. Ideal for a quiet break with the kids, or just the adults.

The road in was a bit narrow, but managed it ok with caravan on.

We have just returned from a 3 night stay over the May bank holiday and would not return again. The site is in a good location, within 10 minutes you have a Sainsburys, Morrisons, KFC, McDonalds and Paignton Zoo.

Now for the site, the staff are very friendly and helpful but if you like to be packed like a sardine in a tin then this is for you, the spaces were very small and everyone was on top of each other.

The toilet block was cleaned regularly but was very dated with dishwashing facilities located inside, our friends husband came from the shower which was a shower curtain not a separate cubicle to find a lady washing the dishes with her husband in the mens toilets. The condensation on the plastic corrugated roofing continually dripped onto you in the shower block, which is annoying when you are trying to get dressed after drying yourself.

The showers were also push button (a pet hate of mine) and one day the shower was freezing and the next very hot and you could not turn the temperature down. Apparently they were ran by gas so it would depend on how many people had showered before you on the temperature you had.

The facilities for children was very good with parks, playhouses and the pool but we did not use the pool to comment, clubhouse, shop or cafe/takeaway.

We will definitely be returning to Whitehill country park. The site is clean friendly well laid out and when we visited out of season very quiet.

The showers wash area were kept clean at all times, the showers had a constant supply of hot water.

We took our two dogs and they only allow dogs when its quiet and they provide a fenced of exercise area.

We visited a few places and one pub we would recommend for fantastic food is The Forces Tavern on the Totnes Dartmouth road. Try the Prawn and sundried tomato stuffed beefburger, its fantastic.
