I stayed at this campsite on a very, verywet weekend in May so there were very few touring units there and I only got apartial impression of the site.

The park seemed very well looked after. The touring area is very attractive with a lot of grass, trees, a pretty bridge spanning the river and good views out. Another good feature was the large number of picnic benches scattered around for personal use. Plenty of toilets and showers of a good standard and all very clean. Good laundry and washing up facilities, I liked it that there was a choice of indoor or outdoor washing up/veg prep sinks. Small children's adventure playground which again looked to be kept in good condition. A small games room and a TV/information room with a useful looking library. Lots of ducks.

Things I wasn't so keen onincluded the large number of statics and the fact that the tents were clearly visible and immediately accessible from the public road running alongside the site. I had a concern about the pitch I had been allocated which was treated dismissively by the senior person in Reception and I was not offered an alternative pitch on the almost empty site - OK my concern might have been baseless but it could have been responded to with more sensitivity.

A final point of information is that there is no mobile signal on this site, not something I would bother about normally but it was an issue for me this particular weekend.

Spent 5 nights here on a multi-service pitch over the August Bank Holiday weekend. Pitcheswereof agenerously sized,very wellspaced outand very well marked.Grass was well maintained and drained well during the fewdownpours we endured. Showers are adequate with just enough flow andreasonably hot. There were quesfor showers in the mornings,even though the park was nowherenear full. Washing up facilities weregood, mostly indoors and some outdoors also.There is an excellentdisabledshower room and babychanging facility.Althoughit wasvery coldthemorning Idecided togive ourbaby a bath,there was no heating on.
Thereis an excellent play-park for children,alsoa river runs around the rear of the park. Therope swings over theriver were very popular with older children. (Andbrave Dads.!)
I cant say the park staff were overly friendly, although the site is well kept and very tidy.
There is not really a shop on site,but thepark is only about 2 milesout of Tavistock,There is aMorrisons and a number of Sparshopsin Tavistock somilk,bread etc are never far away. There is a nice fish n' chip shop / restaurant in Tavistock, and the Harvest Home Pub on the A390 does nice meals.
Most people we spoke to praised the site, and to be honest although it rained we did have a good time. 7/10.

Wow what a great site,verybusy when we visited as you would expect in August if a site is any good. All facilities werekept very clean at all times no mean achievement when the number of campers was taken into account, well done to to the owners and staff.
Very quiet relaxing place (no road noise) with plenty of room even when busy, we like places that let you pitch wherever you like (general camping field).The river area is great, children just seem happy to spend all day inor around the river, if they are happy it makes a good holiday for Mum & Dad too!
Some drivers go a little fast raising the dust somewhat.
Well worth a visit.

We spent a couple of nights camped by the river earlier in the month.

The location and scenery of the site is stunning and all that you can ask of in a campsite.

The facilities werevery good and the showerswere at a perfect level!

Would most definitely stay again but the wife can check us in next time !

Stayed 5 relaxing days on the pitch by the rope swing. Falling to sleep to the sound of the river is so soothing.
Found all facilities to be clean, lots of hot water and well lit. Well used children's playground and plenty of grass for games.
Lots of big groups of families on the central, general camping areas.
There is no shop on the site so need to shop in Tavistock- Morrison's or the market.
The pub in Peter Tavy is very good. Dogs are welcome and get a biscuit or two and our 2 meals there were very good. If you don't want to walk up go early as it is a small car park or get a taxi. We were told by several people that the Elephant's Nest in Mary Tavy is also very good but avoid the Trout and Tipple!

We thought this campsite fantastic for children, nice lot of space for them to run around in and a good play area. Plenty of trees for shade but it did get rather chilly in the nights. The river was fun, if VERY cold!, we took a small inflatable boat and the kids had a great time.

The nearest pub, although a bit of a trek, serves excellent food (no it's not cheap but you get what you pay for) and is opposite a children's playground. Only gripe was other people driving a bit too fast once on the site, but that's not a fault of the campsite!
