We stayed here for the first time & would definitely like to return.It is a gem of a place with beautiful grounds & lots of activities for children.Although it was high season the wait for some paying activities was minimal.There was also plenty of free activities to entertain too. We ate at the on site bar and the food was reasonable & tasted good.Shower blocks are looking tired & could do with being renovated though to be fair some other campers amaze me with their treatment of the facilities.A nightly round to ensure noise is kept down would be helpful too as persons behind us were very loud until about 1am.We didn't complain to them as there must have been 12/15 of them which can be quite intimidating when they appear worse for drink.Having said that though I would hope they are in the minority and did have a lovely time.

Great site with so much for children (and young at heart adults!) to do you don't need to venture outside of the park! We were pleased with our pitch which was level and private. I recommend the Sunday carvery - best we have had in ages.
The toilet block was average in cleanliness but this to be expected on such a large site. I think the toilets were a bit of a trek especially if you have young children. Worth checking the site layout before booking to make sure the facilities aren't too far away.
Swimming pool closes at 4pm which is a shame. The weather was lovely one day. We arrived 3.50pm not knowing the pool was about to be closed and got removed after just 5 mins!

On arrival down a small stretch of single file rd we arrived at river dart. Once paid and allocated our pitch we started to level our caravan and what a job it was.We had a chock under the caravan and it was right on the top and the van was still un level it took us around 20mins just to decide which way to put the van for the best level as we would be here for a week but Alas we never managed it.:-(

The pitch size we had was huge including in the pitch price a small pop up tent and gazebo

The weather wasn't that bad but when it did rain we had loads to do from zip wire 3 tokens 1 each, water zorbing 5 tokens (NEW), canoeing, adventure park, lake with its own very small beach (needed more cleaner sand) tree climbing 9 tokens etc

Showers and toilets where spotless and very warm and hot.

Restaurant on site which was very reasonable in price for food and drinks.

Small shop which sold the norm, bread milk sweets etc.

All in all an excellent site whether its windy,sunny,raining loads to do for kids and adults alike.

What a fab place!

We (2 adults, 3 kids aged 6,8 & 10)stayed for six nights this July could happily have stayed another week.

It rained for most of the week but this did not spoil the holiday at all. The lake with pirate ship and ropeswings was a big hit with the kids but I would recommend wet suits and shoes which can be purchased very reasonably on site.

The adventure playgrounds were great fun but need wellies if the weather isn't good.

There are many other activities on site but there is an extra charge.

The tent field was good even though it rained - the pitches are quite close together though.

The shower/toilet block was adequate and clean enough.

Definitely go back but for longer next time.

Reviewer: Denelibar 2 reviews from this member

Having stayed at this Park on numerous occasions I cannot rate it highly enough. The pitches are large and not at all cramped, the facilities are more than adequate and clean at all times. I've never had to queue for either shower, toilet or washing up sink, despite the camp being very busy at times.

I never have to worry about the children having nothing to do as the adventure playgrounds, slides and activities are enough to keep the most energetic children (or adults) busy. The staff are always very friendly and polite and the overall atmosphere is one of friendly fun.

My most recent visit was with a group of 10 students with learning and physical disabilities. The staff were very accommodating and helpful, providing us with an oversized pitch area. We were occupied the whole time we were there despite having a lot of rain, films were played in the restaurant area for those who wanted to stay dry.

Highly recommend for families, groups or couples.

We camped here for the weekend with our 2yr old and some friends and had a great time staff were friendly and the check in was quick. The site is also open to day visitors, we had visitor's who had to pay the entrance fee to come and visit.

The pitches were very big we had electric hook up and our friends who didn't were just across the road from us the only downfall was that the electric hook up isn't close to the pitch so you can pay a 30 refundable deposit for an extension lead. As other people have said it is on a slight slope we have a vermont l and we fitted on fine with plenty of room for the car and sitting space.

This is truly a great place to come to if you have children, the play areas are brilliant and they have a toddlers play area today which was fab. The other main attraction is the pirate ship and the lake which looked ok on the Friday evening but by sat late afternoon as there had been lots of children in there the water had become a little more cloudy, I would highly suggest a wet/sun suit or old clothes and swimming shoes as there are stones on the bottom. They do have a small man made beach but the sand is a little gritty, they also have a few walks and a nature pond and they also offer many other activities which I can't comment on as we didn't use them.

We used the bar which was reasonable prices for beer and soft drinks and also we had lunch on the sat which was very reasonable to and nice and pleasant, they also had all you can eat pizza and pasta on the sat night which cost 7.95 we didn't use this but it looked very popular.

We used the shop and it seemed to stock quite a few fair things though things were on the pricey side e.G 3.50 for a small disposable bbq they didn't sell alcohol in the shop but I did see a few people buy from the bar and take away, the bar also has a pool table. The games room had a few machine riding and shooting games and a juke box, pool table and grabbing sweets game and a few more. The swimming pool looked on the small side but as the website says shut on a sat due to weddings and then part of the area is closed off due to this, though you can still get to all the amenities.

Now for the toilets they seemed nice enough though my only grumble not cleaned enough twice a day late morning and early evening, it was very busy but I never had to queue they also have sinks though they didn't seem to have enough of these, you can use a hairdryer for 20p, they also had a laundry room with iron, ironing board washers and dryers and they also had freezers where you could freeze ice packs only, also had a disabled toilet and shower room. Also the washing up area was good and they had racks so you could let the washing up drip.

The area of Ashburton is very nice and it has two butchers and a fishmongers the somerfield shop is very small, if we'd been there longer then I'm sure we would have explored more.

There was another camping field that also had a baby changing room a pull down changing mat thing and a bigger sink so you could bathe a baby, on this site they also had a table tennis table, they also have tennis courts but you do have to take ya own bats and balls.

We would go back here but maybe when it was a little quieter, also there's not much lights at night so don't forget a bright torch. A lot of children also took bikes which did become a bit of a hazard at times. Just think the toilet facilities could do with a bit updating and maybe some child washing facilities would be great, seen as it is pointed at that market.
