Reviewer: Jenclarke 14 reviews from this member

Spent 8 nights here over Easter in a tent. Got a flat pitch but most of the non-EHU ones are on a slope. If you want to be sure of a flat pitch then go for a EHU one.

Spotless facilities - looks like all the sanitaryware is new even though the buildings are older. Always lots of hot water in both shower/toilet blocks. Didn't use the laundry and washing up facilities but these looked very good, a couple of electric sockets as well. Hairdryers in ladies.

Minda, Brian and Jenny lovely people and nothing was too much trouble. They dealt with a problem family swiftly. The John Fowler site opposite not too much of a problem - bit noisy at weekends but if you pitched away from the lane then I guess you would be ok.

Occasionally people walking along the lane back to this site were noisy, sometimes the language a little colourful. There was a bus from that site into Brixham but didn't use it.

Not a particularly nice 20 min downhill walk into Brixham, through residential area. Site very well placed for access to the South West Coast Path. No children's' play area. Will definitely be back!

Stayed here same time for the past 4-5 years, facilities very clean, owners and managers very helpful.

We are a family with 2 young children and we have never heard any noise from the site over the road

Easy access to brixham and surrounding areas, quiet site, no play area etc

We will be back next year (as long as the nightly charges don't rise any more !)

Laundrette facilities good

Nice stroll to the local beach but lots of steps once there

Reviewer: LittleRedBerries 1 review from this member

Have just gotten back from three (gloriously sunny) days camping (non hook-up) at this site with my partner and our 7yr old. We found the toilets and showers to be clean and well equipped, and there are laundry and washing-up facilities available (though we didn't use them so unable to comment). The site owners were really helpful and accommodating, and provided a map of the area and some information on local attractions.

My one gripe is that some of the tent pitches are really really close to the pub/clubhouse of the Holiday Park across the road, and in the evenings it was really really noisy. The pub stays open until at least 12:30ish on the weekends, and it made relaxing really difficult. I appreciate that this isn't the fault of the site owners, but we really would have appreciated being told about the noise before hand so we could have made a better decision as to where to pitch up.

Overall a good base from which to explore the Riviera, but bring ear plugs!

What an absolutely fabulous camp site. Owners were very friendly and made everyone feel welcome. Shower blocks and toilets were clean and modern. Short 10 minute walk to the beach (beware of the steps though!) worth the huffing and puffing. Accepts pets and if you're lucky there is sometimes an off-peak flat rate for a weeks' stay - excellent value.

We stayed 2 nights at this lovely campsite, 2 adults and 2 x 13-year old boys. We were given a friendly welcome at the office and the staff were very informative about the local area, buses, taxis and how to get around generally. The shower blocks are absolutely spotlessly clean and look brand new, with plenty of hot water, hair dryers and full length mirror in ladies (nice touch). There are two blocks of showers which is good because if one block is closed for cleaning, then the other is still open. The walk to Brixham is downhill all the way and only took about 15 mins. We took a taxi back.

The beach at St Mary's bay is about 10 minutes away and there are steep steps down to it. You can use the shop at the holiday park opposite for essentials, but quite expensive. There is a small Tesco in Brixham and a Co-op for provisions. The staff warned us about the seagulls, and there are signs up not to feed them as they will invade your tent if food is left out anywhere. This site is for couples and families only which tends to make for a quieter site. We liked it here very much and would certainly return.

Reviewer: Rgreenfield 1 review from this member

Just back from a week at this site and wanted to post up a positive review. To quote my good lady, the site's facilities, the toilet block, washing up etc were some of the best we've seen. Always clean, plenty of hot water and never seemed overcrowded. There were even good family shower rooms for those with babies and young children (as are we).

This is a basic site in the sense that there are no shops or designated playground areas however if you are looking for the real camping experience with good sanitation and space between plots this is ideal. On the other hand if you are looking for a substitute for butlins then go over the road to the John Fowler site.

The location of this site is ideal for enjoying the English Rivera of Brixham, Torquay and Paignton. The site is also close to the coastline with some great coastal walks possible (although not really suitable for bikes as we found to our cost).

Driving access to the site is not without it's challenge / delays, as is the issue for most of Devon but that's part of the whole experience.

Overall would we recommend and would we go back, a definite yes !
