We(2 adults + 14 y/o Son & his friend + 2 tents) stayed here with no booking ahead whatsoever in August 2009. Arrived in pouring rain,at 8pm, were made most welcome, so booked for 2 nights with a view to moving elsewhere later. As soon as we arrived, the rain stopped.
Site was so good that we stayed all week, although we had to move to a new pitch after 3 days due to prior bookings.
I endorse everything good that folks have posted here. I'm submitting this review so long after our stay due to just reading all the negative ones.
Most of the people who have complained here about the site would probably be better going to a hotel.
Whitehill is a brilliant place to stay for practically any ages. Unfortunately we were too busy to be there during 2010, but will do again.
The cafe/restaurant/chippy (call it what ye want),is brilliant & not overpriced at all for what you get. We cooked breakfast every other day & ate in there for the others.
Pleasant & helpful staff. Enjoy it without expecting 5 star hotel treatment.
Entertainment generally good & occasionally excellent.
Loads of attractions nearby as has been stated.
I have no connection with Whitehill other than as a customer. As a 'young' camper of 57,I would recommend the site to anyone & everyone!
We spent 2 nights here, used the Sun camping vouchers we had collected so we could try different camp sites to find ones to use again. Whitehill was clean and tidy, toilets showers and laundry room could not be faulted, the staff were friendly and would recommend this site, it was a lovely stay, in a rural setting. We went on a walk to Stoke Gabriel following the map that was supplied to us at reception, it is a beautiful village and the Church is worth a visit. We like to go away in our motorhome out of season and were a bit dissappointed that although it was only the second week in September the shop was poorly stocked and we couldn't get a meal, takeaway or any food at all, you could get a drink in the bar though. This proved to be to our advantage, we went to the nearest pub the Parkers Arms and got a meal which was very good value for money. Won't go to Whitehill again out of season as we like to go somewhere offering food, or at least one that has food in it's shop, but that is just a personal thing.
Visited Whitehill for 2 nights in September. What a superb site. Extremely friendly and helpful staff, gave us a map and marked out all of the water points, showers and toilets for us. Not too sure what other reviewers mean that the showers were in portacabins as we saw none of these. Very new shower block in the tourers area, and they are superb. Always clean, free, long and hot.The other showers did need a bit of updating.
Very friendly bar, tad over priced but good beer and atmosphere. Didn't use the pool so I couldn't comment on that.
Close to all amenities and Paignton (zoo is fab), sainsburys is just down the road, yet you feel as though you are in the middle of the countryside.
Lots of playgrounds for kids and a nature trail around the park.
Downsides however are the fact that they leave all lights on around the whole campsite all night, so you don't even need a light in your tent. Also, the pitch we had was on a slope, which was rather annoying. But I cant really complain as we got it for £1 a night through the Sun.
All in all a fab site, close to Torquay and Paignton, with excellent facilities.
This is a fantastic site near to all the Torbay attractions. We found the main shower block at the bottom of the hill far better than the portacabin type that are dotted around the site. The water was piping hot at any time of day and the facilities were always spotlessly clean.
There is a good bar with a lovely balcony to sit out on that overlooks the illuminated pool.The games room is well equipped for the children and the site itself has a lot space for kids to play. Entertainment was good, three or four nights a week.
Stoke Gabriel is within walking distance with a nice old church overlooking the river and the old quaint pub is worth going in for a pint.
Our next camp in South Devon will definitely be at this site again.
We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Whitehill - we would have stayed longer but they were full!
The staff are very friendly, the site is clean and had everything we needed, the pool was great too even if it was a bit cold! Plenty for the children to do from arts and crafts to nature walks, and full entertainment in the Barn from 8pm-11pm. There is so much to do in the surrounding area too, cinema, funfair, beautiful beaches, Steam Train, Harbours, Toy Museum, Paignton Zoo the list is endless and we did most of them! The only thing I could say that was a pain (but did not spoil our holiday) were the showers - they were so far away from our tent we had to drive to them, but the water was hot and they were always clean.
We would definitely return and recommend it to our friends & family :)
This was our first visit here. At first we were really impressed but as the week went on, got more disillusioned. At the beginning it didn't seem too bad, as we only appeared to be on a slight incline, but as the week went on, our tent actually started moving downwards!
The heated pool was fab, although not actually heated! The facilities as a whole were what we expected but once again disappointing. The family bar was great with a good set up apart from one thing - the DJ. It was like groundhog day as he played the same games for the kids every night - however the kids actually loved it.
Apart from one new block, the toilets are all in portakabins which were clean, but not what we expected. The new block is lovely, 4 showers in the ladies. There is a family room with a bath though which was great as we have 3 young kids. We wouldn't have been able to take them into the showers as they were extremely hot & the temperature couldn't be altered. Bar & reception staff were lovely.
Despite everything I've said, we still had a lovely holiday & the location was great for Torquay, Paignton & goodrington sands.
