Reviewer: Borgetti 1 review from this member

The narrow lane approaching this wonderful caravan site is very busy at anytime of the day so beware if you book to stay here as we narrowly avoided scraping our van on a tight bend.

Now the good news, this site is probably the best site we've stayed at in our 14 years of caravanning due to the care and attention the staff pay to their customers.

We stayed on the upper part of the site called Blackrock on a hard standing with a shared chemical toilet disposal, fresh and waste water points.

The toilets and showers are immaculate and even though we stayed at the peak time of the year the facilities were never full or untidy.

The site is 8 miles away from Torquay and Paignton and is also in a good position to tour Dartmoor and Plymouth.

We stayed on Blackrock Copse for nearly 2 weeks and had such a great time we didn't want to leave!

We arrived just after noon and were welcomed by Bob who was very informative about the site and local area, he quickly checked us in and took our order for a paper and milk for the next day. We loved where our pitch was, right next to the dog field which was handy for our 2 labradors. The dog field is a good size, totally fenced in and doggy bags are even provided. The other dog walk on the site is larger with one flatish field and another hilly field with great views across the valley.

The shower and toilet block was spotlessly clean, warm at all times and Radio 2 played on in the background which I liked. The showers were a good size with a bench, enough hooks for clothes and a shelf for your toiletries - all well thought out. I used the laundry room for handwashing and even used the iron! There are washing machines available which included powder in the cost, another thoughtful idea which saves you having to buy some.

The grounds of Dornafield are beautiful, very well maintained and clean and tidy. It's such a pituresque place and that is thanks to the owners and staff who maintain a very high standard, one day I was sitting outside and observed a member of staff cleaning the wooden rails outside the showerblock and wiping the cobwebs away, it's that level of attention to detail that makes the difference at Dornafield. They have pride in their work and it was lovely to see.

Our pitch was level with hardstanding for our twin-axle and awning and a grass area to the side and we had a lovely stone wall to one side which was a nice feature.

The road to the site is single track with passing places but we didn't find it difficult to get to the site at all and I loved all the narrow lanes, it's one of the things I love most about Devon.

The biggest thing we noticed about Dornafield was the atmosphere, everyone was so friendly and frequently stopped for a chat, lots of people had been several times before which speaks volumes. We'll definitely be booking for next year.

We thought the site was ideally placed to see Newton Abbot, Dartmoor, Torquay, Dartmouth, Plymouth and Exeter, pretty central all round for sightseeing. Newton Abbot is about 10 minutes away and has a large Tesco and Asda there.

While we were at Dornafield our gas regulator in the caravan stopped working so my husband asked at reception if they could recommend anyone, they did and we gave him a call, he came out and had it replaced within half an hour - brilliant service

Stayed with friends for a couple of nights here. Lovely site. The ladies toilet was one of the biggest I have ever seen, with privacy cubicles, plenty of loos and a lovely area to do your make up and hair and a separate area for showers.

They had good recycling and two different camping areas, a good little shop that you could order fresh bread and milk it also stocked, every thing you could possible want for a stay on site, even caravan bits and bobs with newspapers so OH happy

Quite a walk to the nearest pub- 10/15 minutes according to age, no footpaths. Did not use pub but menu looked good for food which was also where the bus stop was into Newton Abbott.

Was plenty for children to do and a tennis court for the younger end

Will definitely use again if in the area.

The site is lovely and the welcome you receive is warm and friendly.

We stayed in The Orchard, tent field, we were very impressed with the facilities, the kitchen area was spotless, showers and toilets again spotless and warm. Boasts 2 play areas for the kids both with wendy houses, big hit and a play area in the woods which you got to by a path or climbing up through a fort!

My only let down was the tent pitches though large on 1 side of the field were on quite steep slopes and ours (pitch 13!) had rather large rabbit holes which made pitching the tent in a usable space a bit hard and a concern with kids running around the tent that they would fall.

The site is very quiet and by 10pm at the latest the tent field was quiet. Lovely start to morning hearing birds sing in trees.

Fish and chip van on Fri and Sat night which we indulged and was gorgeous.

All in all a really good friendly site, excellent for children, just watch the sloping tent pitches and rabbit holes.

Would go back again

From reading the reviews we knew this site was going to be good and we were not disappointed. The Orchard is a lovely field for tents. Whilst some of the pitches are not completely flat the one we were in did not present a problem for us.

The showers are exceptional, though I do agree having a push button on them that didn't last long was a bit of a pain. Though I found if you kept pressing it before it ran out you didn't get the 'hot/cold' problem. The water did splash a bit into the 'dry area' so make sure to tuck your shoes under the seat.

Plenty of hanging space and room in the 'dry area' too. Only other 'niggle' was was having to come out of the showers into the toilets to dry your hair (though they are right next door so it is not like you have to walk across the camp site). The toilets had two private basins, two private toilet/basins as well as several toilets.

Washing up area had bowls and drainers, which was a nice touch, and a draining / drying area each side.

All the 'wet' areas had cloths so you could wipe around after yourself which meant everything stayed really clean all day.

As said, you do have to order things like bread the day before but supermarkets are not far away if you forget.

The staff were very friendly and helpful.

The surrounding area is beautiful and there is plenty to do.

The play areas were fantastic, (see if you can find the hidden bit in Butter Meadow).

This has to be one of the friendliest sites we have ever been to. Nothing is too much trouble for the sites owners/wardens.

The toilet and shower facilities were always clean. The launderette not only had machines that included the powder and fabric conditioner in the price but if like me you only want to rinse out a few items by hand the is a rinse and spin cycle which was very handy.

The washing up area had washing up bowls and drainers for use along with a microwave (payable) and a freezer for freezing your blocks. Great use if you are a tent camper.

Although we don't have young children we went for a walk and looked at the play area and there were a great range of play equipment for different ages. There is also a tennis court I believe you can book.

The shop has everything you need and you can pre-order you paper, milk, bread etc.

On the day of the royal wedding the owner held a little drinks reception which bought people together and which I thought was a lovely gesture.

A site well worth a visit. Thank you for a lovely time.
