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.

Just returned from a four night stay over Easter, we couldn't fault the fabulous weather. Overall the site is good, although a lot of the pitches are on slopes, we had a flat spot because we requested one!,

the shower/toilet block were cleaned regularly but were a little outdated, the condensation on the plastic corrugated roofing continually dripped onto you, which is annoying when you are trying to get dressed after drying yourself.

One thing we did not like was the fact that the facilities to wash dishes was inside the toilet block, you have to walk with your dishes through the toilets to reach the sinks, this room is also used for drying of hair etc.

There is one good toilet/shower block down the bottom of the park though if you don't mind a trek, and this has outside washing up area but it was too far to trek with all the dirty dishes!

Another down side is the fact that the chip shop shuts at 9pm, therefore if you go up for the entertainment in the evening and fancy a bite to eat afterwards your out of luck!

The grass is also a little long in places, usually campsites keep it very short. When we arrived we were given the pitch number and told to wait outside for someone to show us the pitch from a buggy, not very friendly welcome, although it was 8pm when we arrived.

Overall not a bad site, the location is very good for local beaches and attractions but the approach is very narrow, busy lanes so not ideal for walking!

Pool was good although the toilet/shower block near it was closed off due to problems with the boilers!

Shop and games room were fine. If it wasn't for the location we definitely wouldn't return, we have been to better!
