Just returned from our second visit to this site, just as good as it was 4 years ago! Toilet blocks clean and serviced every day (except bank holiday). Pool still freezing even in august! Shop still well stocked even though it was due to close end of September. A little bit fed up with the fact that with an almost empty site, someone was pitched next to me, didn't mind, but for the fact they insisted on parking their car so that it blocked me in! Specifically chose my pitch to be as far from the toilets due to late night noise, but lo and behold a group clustered near the toilets and playground continued to make noise well into the small hours. When I asked the morning after, the office said they would look into it and nothing changed the night after. It seems that the warden patrols leave the larger groups alone. All in all though, a fantastic holiday on a fantastic site! we will be returning (AGAIN)

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at Whitehill, on the whole the site has many plus points. The view from our pitch was stunning, we where near the top of a large hill, (sweet hill) the price for this stunning view was it was always windy sometimes very windy! we were also on a steep slope. The shower blocks where at the bottom of the hill, this was fine on the way down but once you had a shower you needed another one after the hike back up the hill! The showers were clean but a little bit old and dated, the hot water was not always available before 8 am was ok and after tea was usually ok the site was full but out of the 14 mornings I ended up having at least 6 cold showers.

The pool was clean and always in use our 3 used it and said it was fine once you got in!

The take away was reasonable but only used it once.We had a breakfast on the last day before our journey home it was very good value. The site is in a lovely location Goodrington sands is a really nice beach and the site is well positioned for Torquay Brixham and Paignton. There is loads to do in the area, the reception has loads of leaflets and ideas. Paignton Zoo was very good too.

We had a really good holiday helped by some warm dry weather, we probably wouldn't use this site again as the cold showers and the wind were a pain, but the biggest problem for us was the noise on a night. We didn't use the bar or the kids disco preferring to sit outside the tent with a glass of wine and play card games ect with the children, but a lot of people there let the children hang around the bar/take way area or run around the tents with footballs till quite late on a night. There didn't seem to have any sort of warden or security just to keep the noise down a bit. I'm not a killjoy and I know people are on holiday but I do think it could have been a bit calmer on a night.

I think I must be the only person to disagree with the other reviewers on this site! On arriving at the site we were not welcomed with a smile, on being shown to our pitch we were asked not to set up where it was flat but to set up on the slope as they wanted the grass to grow back. Not ideal, it also meant that we couldn't make full use of the pitch (in fairness we were quite lucky as the pitch was right by some trees) The site has pitches crammed in and if you were hoping for any peace and quiet then this is definitely not the camp site for you. There was noise, family parties and very active children running round the campsites and pitches from 7.00am till well after 11pm.

The showers and toilets were not clean on our first day and there was no hot water in the male or female showers, on the second day we made sure we were in there for half 7 and it was a lot better.

The campsite is close to Paignton (closer to Goodrington) however the road down to Paignton is very narrow and would not be ideal for walking down. Luckily there is a bus but you have to be back on site early, a taxi is not too expensive at 7 if you fancy a change. The Hayloft bar on site is a great addition, the staff are really friendly.

This is definitely a site for families

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.
