Reviewer: Fjordnfresian 2 reviews from this member

When my husband and I first met we enjoyed visiting peppermint park every year. We would stay for a week and then my parents would have the van for a week then we would go back down for another week and bring the van home.

We went into the clubhouse once for a nose, it wa nice but we are not club people so we didn't really use it, we preferred to go down to the beach every night for a mooch in the beach huts and a walk along the beach - the views were lovely.

The pool was outdoors, cold but nice and I went in every day sometimes I was the only one in there despite this there was always a life guard on duty, and the little shop always had a good selection of bits and bobs.

However this time when we went back I was disappointed to find that the pitch just inside the gate that we have stayed on for years has been taken over by a wooden hut and there were statics everywhere. We had to drive right into the back of nowhere to get to the touring caravans - we felt terribly unwanted. We were so far away from the entrance to the site that instead of walking with out small children down to the beach we had to drive because it was too far for them to walk - they were tired by the time we got to the main road.

Saying that the toilets were always clean and hedges and grass always kept neat and tidy. There was also a specific field set aside for a doggy exercise area which is a nice touch.

Arrived after reception had closed, but a warden was with us within minutes to run through all details and show us to our pitch. Park was very very busy due to bank holiday, Facilities were good and not stuck in the 80's as others suggest. Beach is a nice stroll from park ( slight hill just before beach ) only problem is if your in the touring area it takes ages to actually get to the road just outside the site.
We enjoyed our stay at peppermint park and would revisit.
Faults we encountered with this site are :- hardstanding pitches for motorhomes are not flat and chocks are required and no prams / pushchairs are allowed into the entertainment room (clubhouse) after 6pm due to health and safety and so having a young baby who would need the pram we never went to watch any shows or enjoy an evening in the club.

If you want a meal out we enjoyed the boathouse just near the beach and the smugglers inn which is on the way to dawlish on the left, the carvery is recommended.

Gerrards supermarket just outside the site provides everything you require and is very reasonably priced . .

Hope you enjoy your holiday if your staying here, we did.

Spent two weeks here,

Never again!

We were placed next to the loos, down what I can only describe as a muddy incline so people walked above along the top,which also housed the large rubbish bins, which were being emptied/filled at all hours so no chance of a lie in.

There was a well used muddy slide/rabbit run through on our pitch which we blocked off to stop the kids from splashing mud on our canvas but we shouldnt have bothered cos they just pushed it aside.

Sardines have more room then we and many others had,

We had a tent in front of our tent so small were the pitches they could see right into ours and we could theirs.

Disappointed with the whole park, apart from the play park there was no real entertainment for younger children, we had choose this park as it was meant to cater for kids. The indoor pool was small with one lifeguard who often left the pool and just put a sign out! The red mud stained clothes and canvas.

Showers were cold. Cleaners on site cleaning quite alot which is a plus.

Spoke to two other people who complained and said they wouldnt return neither would we!

The menu in the clubhouse was cheap and the food was good.

This was our first visit to Peppermint Park. On arrival we found the reception staff very pleasant and helpful. We have a large tent but still found our pitch size very generous.

Toilet and washing facilities were excellent and well maintained throughout our visit.

Drainage on the grass areas was a bit of a problem but the grounds men were always willing to help with supplying bark chippings to fill in the puddles where the tents were pitched.

Entertainment was first class for a small site and would shame some Haven sites we have visited - well done!

Kids play ground is adequate but some of the apparatus was broken.

Would recommend this site to any one and the carvery in the club house is a must.

We have been to Darlish before, but not Peppermint Park, and we chose this site for its vicinity to the sea. At £18 pound a night the price is steep, but I suppose you pay for the facilities that keep the kids from under your feet all day. We didn't see the pool, or go to the club house for the talent contest so I really canít comment on them. The facilities were clean and were constantly being cleaned, and the showers were really powerful, I canít fault that! Now for the state of the pitch, disgusting! The grass was long; it was strewn with coat hangers, used tea bags, and dirty cigarette ends. The whole area also smelt of urine. We stayed one night and moved on at day light cutting our losses. Not my type of site, too bucket and spade.
