We recently stayed at Devon Cliffs in a Static Caravan - Like most of the reviews written so far I will agree that the site is very hilly. Both my partner & I had stayed at Devon cliffs some years ago - however we were pleasantly surprised at the re-fit. The facilities are very good – the indoor pool could do with a good clean. Drinks & food are as expected not cheap - but reasonably priced. There is a restaurant on site but we didn’t eat there. The club rooms were a good size but when we stayed the site wasn’t very busy. I would imagine in the height of summer the rooms would be too crowded.

My only complaint would be upon arrival we were told that the computers were down, Security told us to go to the club room but the reception staff told us to queue up in the main reception area – After nearly an hour of shouting from Security telling us all to go up to the club room we finally checked in in the reception area.

This is a great site if you fancy parking up for the weekend & making the most of the facilities. The surrounding area has some fab places to visit & would thoroughly recommend using this site.

I have just returned from Havens site - Devon Cliffs, supposed to be there flag ship, hmmm.
Arrived on site - touring area extremely muddy. Ok - weather is bad but looks like the tractors they had used had gone all over alot of pitches. Also -  most of the touring area is on a slop. We had to ask 3 times for breeze blocks - eventually got them a day later. I had to raise the front of the van about a metre of the ground to get it level. And then once it was level, the water pump did not even touch the water butt so could not pump any water in.
The worst bit though was the toilet block. In the 3 days we stayed there - and we had booked for 5 days, we asked 3 times for them to be cleaned. Were not touched. They were a complete mess, the worse toilet block I had stayed in - no wonder it was cheap.
Anyway - hope this helps someone save a few pounds. Or if you want to go there and will use won facilities, make sure you get a level pitch.
I must say though the facilities for kids - was great - cannot fault that. Its that we have to wash and clean the kids sometimes, so good or even clean facilities to do that would have been needed.

Just returned from a weeks holiday, site was huge and packed, it was extremely hilly, partner ended up helping someone struggling to tow their van up a very steep hill. Also vans were too near to each other. One good thing we had a nice sea view.

I only used the shower block once because it was really dirty and the shower door didn't shut properly so the water went everywhere.

Food on the site was overpriced and to be honest not very nice. There is a nice pub next door to the site which did huge portions, and quite reasonable. Would also recommend the farm next to the site, quite pricey but well worth it, loads to do for the kids.

When we went to empty toilet we were amazed we had to empty it into a normal toilet, there was no elsan points?

Beach was nice but again to get there you had to go down a very steep hill.

The site has 3 clubhouses, the main club where they have entertainment for the younger kids got busy about 5.30 pm so if you went any later chances are you wouldn't get a seat. Room was really hot, didn't seem to have any air con (maybe done on purpose so you buy more drinks!)

All in all the kids loved the entertainment but think we would prefer to go back to Haven Littlesea because it isn't as hilly.

All I can do is praise this site the only fault being the very slopey pitches but next time we go we will know to get one at the top end of the field.The bad write-ups about this site I could not find, the amenities were clean showers hot and the view was fantastic, might be a different kettle of fish come July/August. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

HMMMMMM! Very steep touring area, I think my clutch has died.
Very poor / dirty toilet facilities. Very dusty roads in the touring area, still cleaning it out of my van. 1 family unit for bathing kids, used by every man and his dog it seems. Touring area needs the same amount of cash injection as the rest of the site, total modernisation wouldn't go amiss.

Entertainment for kids is v. Good tho. The kids shows seem quite short.
Good shop Good sports area with 3 outdoor and large indoor pools with slides. Very steep / hilly site, must have good legs! Nice beach, no dogs allowed in summer. Good views across the bay. Reasonable prices on site.

On arrival at this park we had the shock of our lives.The touring field is located very high on a steep hill. The gradient of the access road is so severe that some outfits had to have a tow by the wardens tractor or suffer clutch burn-out. The caravans are pitched extremely close together and I could nearly stretch out of our window and touch our neighbours windbreak!

There are two toilet blocks. The one we visited had a family room, which when used left the floor in a sea of brown coloured water. Unfortunately, we stayed during a wet week in july and so the tired looking touring field resembled a mud bath as there are no hardstanding pitches.

On the positive side, the warden was very helpful providing us with three foot of bricks to level our van. This is an all action site with great live entertainment which the children will love.
