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.

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 !

Stayed at this site last week for a few nights as a family of 3 plus a small dog. This was only our third time camping and we are basic campers but managed pretty well. We just needed a fairly level pitch (we were in the bottom field) and clean showers/toilets. The shower/toilet blocks were spotless at all times we visited and with with plenty of free hot water. Although this site takes dogs, you do have to exercise your dog off site and we actually drove off site in the car rather than walk across the field. This, I think, was slightly annoying but felt we had to as apparently there had been complaints from other campers about other dogs being walked up to the gate for their off site exercise. We would never let our dog off loose on a site but next time we would perhaps look for somewhere a bit more 'dog friendly'. On the other side of the hedge is a John Fowler site and unfortunately several of their visitors were extremely loud late at night and sound certainly does carry at night! I realise this is not the fault of the campsite owners and maybe we were just a bit unlucky, which leads me on to the word 'seagulls'. What can I say other than I have never heard so many loud seagulls in my life. They seemed to start at about 3am in the morning and went on for a couple of hours. Needless to say, my husband and I were exhausted although our teenage daughter slept through it all! A lovely area to say in and we enjoyed our break but if we visit this site again we will be bringing some kind of earmuffs!

We spent 3 nights at this pleasant site recently. The site is very conveniently situated around 15mins walk from Brixham town centre. The site is very close to the South West Coast path, which is handy for exploring!

The site is well maintained and facilities very clean, if a little on the smaller side. There are no play places on site for children. There isn't a shop on site but the Spar 10mins walk away is handy and there is a Fowlers campsite opposite which has a shop that you can access. When we checked in we didn't really get much information from the staff regarding the site.

The views were nice and the space adequate, I think the facilities would struggle if the site were full. The site is quiet and relaxed.

Really nice open field site, facilities are very clean, as previous reviewer mentioned showers are a bit of a pain to use and were a bit too hot during our stay, washing up room is also strange with large deep sinks but no draining boards so the floor and countertops end up swimming with water. Laundry room was great with 2 large washing machines and 2 huge dryers, cost approx £10 to do a weeks worth of washing which I didn't think was too bad.

A point to note if you are visiting in a motorhome is that there is no dedicated motorhome service point and only 1 tap on site that you can connect a hose to,(at the side of the main toilet block), we managed ok but it was a bit fiddly to empty our waste tanks.

There is no shop on site but you can walk 2 mins down the road to the John Fowler holiday village and use their shop. The owner was extremely friendly and helpful and always stopped for a chat whenever we crossed paths.

The walk down into Brixham takes approx 20 minutes at a leisurely pace, the return trip takes a bit longer as its all uphill :(. Brixham is a lovely village with plenty of shops, pubs & places to eat, you can also catch the ferry over to Torquay for a nice day out. I would highly recommend this site and would return here if we visited this area again.
