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.

A pleasant well organised site, if not a little too organised for us, no cycling on site and you have to be packed up and of site early morning on day of departure even when its not bus, so unless you pay another nights fee you only get a Saturday if you go for a weekend, I don't mind paying extra to stay on, but thought a full nights fee was excessive. The site is next to a busy road with traffic noise though you do get used to it. The toilets are dated but spotless with plenty of free hot water. They do not have a shop just a few bits in reception so make sure you take everything you need. The children's play area was lovely and well kept as was all areas of the site, nicely mowed grass. The donkey santuary was a real treat with a pleasant walk from the site to it.

What a gem this site is. We stayed on Beech Grove which is just over the way from the other site. Our pitch was level and we were left with enough space by the tent to park the car and set up quite a large badminton net! Our pitch overlooked the golf course which my husband and son played a round - good value for money. Our first couple of days there gave us some pretty heavy rain and the field did become a little muddy but then I would imagine this happened elsewhere. Given the weather the toilet/shower block remained very clean at all times which is a feather in the cap of the lady and gent (I don't know their names)who kept them that way. The laundry block housed two washers and two dryers - 2.40 for a wash and 50p for a 21 minute dry (incase anyone's interested!). Clothes came out cleaner than others I've used. On our last night we ordered a Chinese takeaway from 'Yummy's' which was delivered to the car park at the top of the site, 1.50 delivery charge. We were a bit apprehensive about what we were going to get but I can say that the food was delicious and we would recommend. The only negative I can give is that the gravel path which runs around the site needs to be extended to the toilet/shower block. I think this may make the wardens jobs a little easier keeping the block clean in bad weather and campers feet dry! I would highly recommend this site.

Fantastic Site! Staff were very friendly and helpful. Showers and Toilets were always spotlessly clean. Pitches were flat and spacious. Great play area for the children. Short drive to Sidford for local Spar so a shop on site would be a bonus. Great pub food in Sidford also a good fish and chip shop. Lots to do in area: Donkey Sanctuary only a short walk away. Beer, Branscombe and Lyme Regis only a short drive. Small amount of noise from road but that didn't put us off. Will definitely return here next year!

We have just come back from an incredible weekend at Oakdown, in no small part due to this wonderful site.

The site owners were helpful and readily available, yet unobtrusive. The amenities block was always spotlessly clean, and there was hot water at all times.

The lack of a club/bar etc meant that it was exceptionally quiet at night, great for families with smaller children or those wanting the old-fashioned way of camping.

There is some road noise, but as with other posters, we soon screened it out.

We were in Beech Grove, which has a lovely unspoiled feel to it, please keep it that way!

Our children loved the paly area, and the grassy areas available for games etc. We also made much use of the golf, which was great value for money. We understand that there is to be an extension to the golf shop for a small site shop, which would be very welcome, as milk and bread are a short drive away.
