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!

Reviewer: Colawall 1 review from this member

I have just returned from Whitehall, booking the last week of the school holidays, and I can safely say that despite having been camping since I was a baby (I am now 40) this is the best site I have ever been on.

I have a six year old daughter and it is always a struggle to find a site that has things for her (playground/pool/etc) without the commercial plastic (caberat/park mascot/alco-pop crowd)that I abhor. This site is perfect.

Several fields, each with showers and washing up facilities which are cleaned vigorously every day. There is even free electricity for hairdryers and straighteners! One of the shower blocks was so nice I almost expected to find a spa round the corner. I didn't find a spa but I did find a couple of 'family rooms' which had a fixed baby seat and a bath! What joy!

The play areas are great: spread around the site, including a pool and baby pool (but unfortunately these were freezing!), toddler play area, mini-assault course/wooden play area. They also had a great nature trail with clues to take you round the site and a fantastic craft centre where we went a couple of times to paint pottery and photoframes.

The staff in the reception, the shop, the bar and cafe were wonderful and you really felt they were there to provide a good service and that they enjoyed working there.

We were taken to our pitch and provided with fire stones for our bbq. We were told about the facilities and just felt they would do anything in their power to help. There were always people busy doing something to better the site. So despite this not being the cheapest site you felt that your money was actually going back into the site not into their pockets!

The shop provided almost everything that you could want, although a Morrisons and Sainsburys were a short drive away. Also within five mins was Paignton Zoo (fabulous) and other attractions to fill your days.

Cafe was great and full English breakfast is highly recommended.

I will definitely being going back!
