Just got back from a week at Whitehill and have to say I was very impressed. Good size pitch for our tent, you have to specify the size of tent when booking.Showers and toilets were always very clean,even though they could do with a bit of an upgrade.

Loads of facilities on site, two bars, take-away,shop, swimming pool, arcade.

Site is very well located, watch out for the narrow lane leading to the site, some people do not understand what the passing lay-bys are for. Paignton, Torquay and brixham all within 7 miles of the site plus there are loads of other thing to do.

Will definitely be returning next year.

This is the second time we have stayed at this site and the first time with our new outwell maryland xl which is a monster of a tent.

They were happy to accommodate us and it just about fit on the pitch we asked for.

Couldn't fault the service we received when asked them to fix the electric hookup. The staff were there within minutes and were very helpful.

The showers and toilets were immaculate and very spacious. And the bar prices were very reasonable. (i recommend the hayloft lager at 2.09 a pint !)

Curry night and the evening entertainment were very good also.

And its only a two minute drive to paignton.

All in all, a very good week at a lovely site. I will definitely be returning again and would recommend it to anyone

Stayed for 2 nights,

First impression was excellent reception staff gave a good welcome. We were then shown to our site by a young lad on a golf buggy very impressed.

The pitch we were given however was directly under some large pylons in the top field, unhappy with the pitch reception moved us to the other field which was also on a slight hill but away from the pylon.

The 2 males in the next pitch were a bit drunk and passed some unwelcome sexual comments to my partner.Not the campsites fault I must add. Where was security people ?

The toilets/showers were immaculate cant stress this enough, Plenty of free hot water, there was no mop the floor was wet in some of the shower cubicles and no were to hang things.

The site has a well stocked very competitively price shop open when we needed it.

The outside pool looked clean but did not use it.

Looks like this site tries hard with entertainment with plenty going on for families.

The location is ideal just outside Paignton down the lane. Lovely to listen to the owls hooting and the grass hoppers at dusk !

We will be using this site again.

Just spent 2 nights at Whitehill country park in our tent!

We were really impressed by the site, great location on the edge of Stoke Gabriel, excellent facilities particularly the loos and showers which were really clean and well maintained-best we've ever visited!

Tent pitches are great-loads of space, surrounded by countryside.

Perfect for families with loads of well looked after play equipment.

Lovely outdoor pool and restaurant.

Loved it, will definitely go back !

We stopped here for 5 nights during whit week.

Had been to this site many times in the past but this was our first visit for 6 years and our first with a caravan.

We had a hard standing pitch which was huge with enough room for car, caravan, awning and more room to spare for bbq, table and chairs etc.

Toilet and shower blocks were great and kept very clean. Didnt have to queue for a shower even with the site near full.

The swimming pool area is lovely, kids really enjoyed it, the play area is very good too.

On tuesday mornings there's a fantastic bird of prey display which was excellent and free.

Nice bar and disco/entertainment area and the food was nice too, especially curry night on a tuesday, two for 13 and were delicious.

Great location, central to everywhere.

All in all, still a fantastic site even though it hasn't really changed much over the years. We will return again in a couple of years, if the site had sea views I would say its near perfect, but I like to be able to see the sea from my caravan.

Reviewer: Mad4tents 2 reviews from this member

This was our second year here, we stayed for 10 nights. I asked for a flat pitch this year as last was on a hill!

Although I had given the size of the tent it only just fit on the pitch and there really wasn't much gap between neighbouring tents. We have a Coleman Velhas 8 tent.

The pitch site was convenient for the park and toilets at night, I don't recall the lights being on at night since I used the torch to get to toilet in the early hours. Admittedly some of the shower blocks are in need of updating and modernising, but we mainly used the new block in the touring site as they are wonderfully clean and there is a family shower room and also a bathroom for babies. At peak times there is a wait for the facilities. Saying this the showers are free and always hot and plenty of sinks for washing up in.

The entertainment for the children is good, there was a mini nature trail to go on. In the barn there is free painting and of course the swimming pool though last year our two found it too cold, and twice whilst we were there it had to be closed due to children not wearing swimming nappies.

We didn't eat in the on site cafe as I either cooked or we went to Morrisons next to Paignton Zoo. The prices in the club are rather expensive, but the staff are very friendly. There was live music in the bar most nights and a kids disco in the Haybarn I think it's called. Some nights it was just games though and my two wanted to dance. But there is a good games room and arcade type games my two loved playing air hockey!

If you have young children you will need to drive as it is down a country lane, Stoke Gabriel is a lovely village in walking distance as long as no young children! The park is well placed to getting to Goodrington Sands which has a lovely sandy beach. There is also an open air swimming pool with flumes etc at Goodrington and a Harvester pub with soft play area for children.

We will return in the future I am sure!
