This is a lovely site that we visited for the first time recently. The location is perfect, even though you are a stones throw from a busy road, sainsbury's, lidl's and a garage it doesn't feel like it and is quite tranquil.

The toilet and shower block is enormous and spotlessly clean at any time of day. There are good laundry facilities and ample wash - up sinks.

The shop on site is well stocked with essentials, though papers are to order only. There are no play park facilities but there is a dog walk area which seemed popular with the canine residents (and their owners)

The pitches are well maintained and varied. There are recycling facilities which are excellent.

The park and ride bus proved very handy for multiple trips into charming Dartmouth. One thing that lets Dartmouth down is the distinct lack of reasonably priced pub type places to eat.

Would thoroughly recommend this site!

Other reviewers have waxed lyrical about this site and I agree facilities are excellent, access to park and ride very handy etc. I think it is worth pointing out that this is very much the 'large open field' style of site. You might want to try and persuade the manager chap to let you pitch by the hedge.

Otherwise there is absolutely no shelter from wind or, as when we were there, blazing sun. I reckon the lack of landscaping would make this site rather overwhelming when it is full; there certainly isn't much privacy if you are pitched in the middle of one of the fields.

We found Dartmouth very, very busy, unpleasantly so really, and this was in May not in school hols. To be honest I was disappointed, I thought it would be more folksy and quaint.

We spent a week at this site at the end of July, and think it is probably the best site we have used.

The reception staff were efficient and friendly and the chap who showed us to our pitch was very helpful and offered us the choice of pitches, explaining which one had the best view and sun. We were pitched in a field only used for tents which was lovely and during our stay was mainly occupied by families with young children, which meant our daughter made some lovely playmates.

The pitch size was more than adequate for our 6-man tent and porch and the field had plenty of space in the middle for the chldren to play.

The toilet/shower facilities were excellent and rarely over busy, although with a 4 year old we were usually up before the busy period! The only small gripe would be that it didn't hava a family room for children to have a bath and the showers were far too hot for them to use. However, the baby change room does have a large sink which was suitable for smaller children, but would have been difficult for older children who couldn't/wouldn't use the showers.

The park and ride service next to the campsite was excellent, meaning we could leave the car at the campsite most days and Dartmouth was wonderful with lots to see and do in the surrounding area. The town itself is very limited with places to eat for families. However, with two very good supermarkets next to the campsite we ate 'at home' most evenings.

Excellent site, great location, lovely owners and staff. The biggest and cleanest toilet/shower block we've seen. The park and ride next door is excellent as parking in Dartmouth is a nightmare to say the least. There is a sainsburys over the road and a lidl next to the petrol station, although the site was very close to the for-mentioned shops etc you may well have been a million miles away because you could not hear a thing. Well worth the 8hr drive, what is a must is an early start down to Dartmouth to witness the sea mist rolling in and out with tide, a budding David baileys dream.

We'll be back.

Returned to Little Cotton yet again (our 4th visit) and still very happy with the service given and the cleanliness and location of this site.

Convenience for getting around is excellent but sorry to learn you are now unable to buy your return park and ride ticket from their shop. It used to cost l for return journeys and you could use this all day long. You now have to purchase a 4 ticket from car park of park and ride machine which is annoying if you don't have any change.

Shop sells nearly everything. Bus stop outside site will take you to Totnes, Paignton and Torquay.No facilities for children. Will still visit this site.

This park is quite simply brilliant. The owners Paul and Dorothy are really friendly and helpful and upon arrival Paul shows you to your pitch and makes sure that you are sited in the correct position and even makes sure that you are level, a really nice touch.

The park is kept immaculate all the time, pitches neatly mowed, tarmac roads all around, re-cycling facilities and the facility block which also houses a laundry and wash up room is the best I've ever seen. They have a small shop for all the essentials and a nice dog walk area.

One of the best things about this park is its location. It's just off the main road into Dartmouth with a new Sainsbury's just outside the entrance and a Lidl, leisure centre and BP station just down the road. They are also just next door to the park and ride, so you can leave your car on site and catch the bus into town. As anyone who has been to Dartmouth will know parking can be a nightmare.

As one reviewer has said unless you have been there it sounds like a strange location, but its fantastic.

Have been here three times already and have just sent off my deposit for next months stay, I can thoroughly recommend this park and Dartmouth for a great holiday.
