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.

Family of 5 and stayed one night enroute to Brittany then again on the return journey.

This site is OK to use the night before or after the ferry and has a dedicated hard stand area near the entrance with electric hook up where it is not required to un-hitch the caravan.

Both showers / toilet blocks are reasonable but unfortunately, the dish washing area is only at the block furthest away from the entrance. This leaves a fairly long walk from the entrance where the touring caravans are parked overnight for the ferry.

Also, the bar is near the entrance and with the Karaoke, you probably won't get an early night for the early morning ferry.

The children's play park is reasonable and the pool is very clean. There is also a dedicated small swimming pool for infants.

The trees and hedges on this site are very well maintained.

Excellent site.

Very clean and well maintained. Staff very helpful.

Pitches are large and well organised. They placed us in a quieter part of the site as we had 2 small children but whole site is safe for them to run around.

Toilets etc very clean although some of the shower heads were lower than others but only got caught out once!

Bar, restaurant and take away very reasonably priced. Food excellent - very tasty.

Good location - short bus ride to Plymouth and Park & Ride only a 10 min walk away with buses every 10 mins. Close to motorway but no noise from it.

Childrens play area could do with a bit of updating but our kids loved it and they are probably the best judge of this.

Very enjoyable stay and cant wait to go back.

Arrived in the middle of Winter but was made welcome by the Wardens. The facilities are looking tired but as the site is now allocating space to Park Homes, I guess the writing is on the wall. All the facilities apart from the toilet block were closed and due to the extremes of the Winter all the water was frozen up. The good thing as far as the site is concerned is the location, which is close to the Plymouth Park and Ride and the nearby Retail Park which includes Sainsburys and MacDonalds. Its a 15 minute walk to both.
