We booked this site after reading all the good reviews. Welcome on arrival was a OK but we weren't given any information at all, which is unusual these days.

Our pitch was on the other side of the road and the warden that met us there was good and told us about the facilities. The pitches were huge and although the facilities were spotless they were very small, the bruise on my elbow bears that out, as I caught it on the metal shelf in the tiny shower!

The facilities on the main site were very good and can't be faulted, as is everything else. We felt that the area we were on was like and 'overflow' and all the tents/caravans with children were pitched there, making it very noisy and busy.

I'm not sure we would return to this site if pitched in the same area again. A space for children to play away from the pitches would make a huge difference.

We spent the Whitsun week here with our friends and camped in Holly Grove. We all agreed that this was a great site and are booked up for next year.

We weren't affected by any road noise at all and the sun came across in to the grove in the afternoon so it was perfect for bbq's!

The facilities are probably the best we've come across in 4 years of camping, they even provided cloths in the dishwashing area for you to wipe down the sinks with when you were done. Little touches like this make a real difference!

We thought the amount of showers/toilets was adequate, I only had to go in to the overflow shower room once and we were there in a peak bank holiday week.

Our kids, a mix of boys and girls with ages ranging from 7 to 10 practically lived in the main play area. We would not have been happy at letting them wander over to the other playing area as you do have to cross a small road (albeit not very busy). This is also where the pitch and putt golf course was, which we all tried and really enjoyed.

We spent most of our week visiting along the coast heading for beer and seaton but next time we intend to spend more time over Exmouth way as we love the beach there.

The staff were always very friendly and helpful, we asked for some bricks one night for our bbq and they brought them to us in their little on site buggy with trailer and even carried them over to where we wanted them!

If I had to think of something that could make it just that little better for us (this is being picky though) it would be to have a ball playing field as the open play areas are restricted and our kids love to run wild! This however, would not stop us visiting again, it was a great week and we can't wait for the next visit!

Decent toilet and shower facilities, always clean when we were there.

A large enough pitch if you are on a hard-court.

Reception starts only at 08:30 in high season and 09:00 when we were there. As there is a locked low bar at the entrance in non-office hours you can only have a late start to your journey when leaving with the caravan.

I didn't notice any shop on the site but there is a supermarket less than 10 minutes away in the car. Owner's comment: Site shop is open through Mid and High season

We'd possibly return to this site if we return to that area.

Their internet charges, they sell it by the minute, only available in one room and at their rates would cost 504 a week Owner's comment: The cost is 0.50 for 20 mins.

We stayed here in August with my family boy 6 girl 3. This is a top site. We read all the reviews and they were all right! showers very clean. The washing room has a microwave in it which was a god send as my 2 children still like warm milk in the mornings.The large freezer is free to use too. GREAT

We will be back next year for sure. Sidmouth beach is lovely when the tide is out. Loads of sand and rock pools. Great for the kids. Waitrose not far just past sidmoth itself on the way to Exmouth. Spar shop in village too.

Only 2 moans, the ground is very stony and we bent loads of pegs. The donkey sanctuary I just down the road. Its a good trip and its free. You do hear the odd donkey in the middle of the night going mad about nothing. We found it quite funny after a while. The site is by a main road but the traffic noise stop about 11pm ish.

All in all very good site.

What a fantastic site. All the facilities were fantastic, clean and very tidy. The whole site area was kept immaculate, the staff on our part of the site were so friendly, what a great husband and wife team. The shop was very well stocked and it has a coffee shop. The pitches were Large and you didn't make you feel cramped at all. Sidmouth is a gem of a place with great beaches and rock pools. We will be back to this great site but don't tell too many people

This is what a camping site should be!

Upon arrival the staff are helpful taking you to your pitch and asking if you need a hand with anything.A great start.We had taken our large tent with electric hookup,one toddler,1x8 1x14 and 2xadults not forgetting 1 black Labrador!

The pitch was very large and well drained,with short grass.Spot on.

Having erected the tent off to the loos,superbly clean for our entire stay,warm and plenty of soap. The only downside is the shower cubical is a little tight with no shelve for clothes.

There is a smashing tumble dryer and washing machine along with an ironing room,which also has a spotless free of charge microwave which made it so easy to warm the bottle for the baby in the early hours.

A small shop which was reasonably priced,a cafe which did tea and cakes. Also there is a small golf course.

You can take a walk each evening along a lovely grass path towards the donkey sanctuary which is worth a visit. Sidmouth isnt far away for a visit too and there are many local pubs.

As you can tell we really enjoyed our visit and will be going again next year. The only down side is the noise from the road

Nearly forgot two play areas for the kids that they loved!
