A very mature, well laid out site, lots of different areas which makes it feel smaller than it is. We had a large hard standing pitch with grass on either side, which meant you could make the most of the sun or shade.

The site facilities were very good and always clean. There is a shop and cafe on site. Plus you can order chinese or pizza to be delivered to site.

You can walk from site to the Donkey Sanctuary. Weston Beach is 2 miles walk away (pebbly doggie friendly beach - all up hill on the way back!).

The only downside our pitch was next to the busy road and the noise was quite intrusive, pitches near the back of the site where much quieter.

We enjoyed our stay.

This is a lovely site with very large pitches. The moment you arrive you are greeted by several friendly staff, who will show you to you pitch and advise the best way to pitch. The pitches are very large and private, as there are well kept grounds, with hedges and bushes. The facility block is very clean with ample hot water. There is a specific area for motorhomes to empty waste water and an excellent recycling point for all rubbish. There is also a very large play area for children.

There is a golf course across the road and a small shop and cafe with a small selection of pasties, teas and coffees.

This site is an excellent location for the Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary, which is a short stroll away, through a field track, which is also kept in very good order. Along the track are many benches, dedicated to staff, families and furry friends, so a rest can be taken to enjoy the peace and quiet. The Donkey sanctuary is free to enter, but donations are gratefully received.

I would certainly use this campsite again.

We had a fantastic weekend. Site was spotless. Well mown grass. Really friendly wardens. Hot showers. Good size pitch. Brilliant, keep up the good work. Also glad you recycle. Dogs are so welcome with the walk to the donkey sanctuary at hand. In our opinion you are underrated at five star, should be 10 star !

Once again we chose a site where we could reach local towns using public transport. Oakdown fitted the bill as there was a bus stop about 300m away – though it meant crossing a busy road two or three times to get there because there wasn’t a pavement. The cost of two return tickets to Sidmouth came to £7.50 – roll on 2011 when I get my bus pass!

We could reach all the facilities easily from our large flat hardstanding pitch but unfortunately it was situated next to the road which, although quiet at night, could be very busy and therefore extremely noisy at other times. If you chose to stay on your pitch during the day this could be very annoying.

Papers could be ordered from reception and collected from the shop on the par 3 golf course next to which is a further field for Oakdown campers / caravanners.

The toilet / shower block was always kept clean and the shower cubicles were immense! Didn’t have to fight off the curtain when showering and could change afterwards in comfort.

We had great weather during our 3 night stay and so a late afternoon stroll down to the donkey sanctuary was a must. We were moved to see all the remembrance plaques for both people and pets next to the trees and on benches on our way there. Recommended.

We would certainly return to Oakdown if we could be guaranteed a pitch away from the road.

This was our third visit to Oakdown and it never fails to impress. The site is well laid out and the facilities very clean and tidy. It's position next to the Donkey Sanctuary and proximity to the coastal path are all definite plusses.

You can now order newspapers from the shop at the golf range which is very welcome. The shop also stocks basic essentials such as milk/bacon etc. We caught the bus into Sidmouth (the stop is about 10 mins walk) and found it a good service.

The only minus point really is the road noise but this isn't too intrusive.

This is one of our favourite sites. Will be back!

We were lucky enough to go to Oakdown for 3 days in August, and oh what a beautiful site! The wardens were really friendly and you felt like you had been there before. The pitches were very generous and the site itself was immaculate. The golf course was great for my hubby and two sons,which gave me time to relax and watch the world go by. The showers etc were all very clean and the wardens were always checking to make sure they stayed that way.We only stayed there for 3 days as we were moving round to Brixham, but I would have been very happy to stay there for the whole of my 10 day holiday. Sidmouth is a lovely little seaside town but my favourite was Beer, very quaint and picturesque. Cannot fault the site, the very friendly wardens or the area, cannot wait to go back. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
