Having just spent the weekend here I must say that it was lovely. The ablution facilities are very clean.

My only moan is the short time the hot water dispenses in the shower (approx. 5 secs) before you have to depress the hot water button to get another 5 sec spurt.

Otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed the weekend, even if it was just to 'test' the recently converted transit - camper.

The ten minute walk to the beach was not found by us but the views and scenery made the walk along the hilltop extremely pleasurable. Would come again most assuredly.

My Partner and I plus 2 dogs stayed at this site for 2 nights on 21st May; after many years of none camping. We absolutely loved it!

The owner was extremely helpful on booking and rang us (as we arrived a lot later than planned due to traffic)to tell us they needed to close but told us where we needed to go etc. The campsite was well maintained and very clean our pitch was perfect. I normally 'struggle' with the shower / toilets blocks but these again were very clean and nice.

Dogs need to be kept on a lead at all times as with most sites and walked off the site which I fully agree with. The beach was only 10-15 minutes walk which dogs are allowed and there are plenty of other walks to go on nearby.

We used to walk back from Brixham via Castor Rd which was just a light hill. The site is perfectly placed if visiting with dogs there are a few pubs in Brixham that allow dogs the blue anchor being one of them. This site has restored my faith in camping and we are looking forward to returning.

This is the best campsite we have ever used, our first stop here was summer 1996, and we make sure we visit at least once a year (usually 2 or 3 times even if only for a couple of nights)

The facilities have always been spotless and the owners more than friendly, but with the improvements to the old shower block in 2009 and the newer block now completed its refurbishment the site is even better than expected.

We always get a warm welcome, the pitches for camping are where you like to a point giving you a lot of space and privacy. Although we like to 'ruff it' with minimal odds and sods, the space and layout of the electric hook up sites looks one of the best we have seen.

The location is A1, close to Brixham, just 20 mins walk, an almost private beach at St Marys little over 10 mins plus the steps, a Spar 5 mins down the road open till 10, John Fowler site over the road with a small shop offering the basics plus fresh baked bread in the morning, and if you don't want to walk the bus stop almost opposite.

The facilities on site are even better than expected, always hot water, plenty of loo's and showers, and the office will always give you help and point you in the right direction.

Recommendation is always the best form of advertising. Last year we invited our sister in law and the two kids (one 9 one 7) down to join us - never camped before! the girls had the time of their lives, running in the field, riding bike, cliff walks - two weeks after their return, they had purchased the tent and all required, booked up and asked us to join them, this Whitsun will be their 3rd visit!

The site is well maintained, and always feels safe and secure, we had no problem in letting the little ones loose around the site and the other advantage is that the owners respect the requirement for privacy and quiet, in the 14 years we have never had problems with noise or unruly groups as on other sites, by 10 or not much after its a sea of tranquillity, matching the wonderful position and facilities.

If you only visit once, I can assure you it wont be long before you will want to return.

We visited this site after reading other positive reviews and were not disappointed.

Most importantly the toilet, shower and washing facilities were spotless.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Although there was no on site shop you could use the shop on the site opposite or walk a few minutes to a nearby spar.

Pitches were spacious and when we visited there was plenty of room for children to play.

Ideal base for exploring Torbay, nearby steam trains and waterpark. We will definitely use this site again when we return to the area.

We had a fantastic visit to our favourite campsite again this year. Very friendly and warm welcome from the staff. Even more features than our last stay including a refurbished shower block and ice block facilities.(Main block due for refurbishment 2010, although facilities are excellent for a campsite already, we had all we needed).

Small shop across the road for all your essentials that allowed us to use very kindly.

Brixham such a beautiful fishing town with an amazing history and gorgeous scenery (and a resident seal that we very luckily got to see 3 times!). Sharkham point has the most fabulous views and a lovely part of the coastal path where we got to see 2 schools of dolphins swimming around the bay!

We loved every minute of our 2 week stay and will be back every year without fail.

AB FAB! this site is brilliant! Washrooms and WC's always clean, however did nearly break my neck in the washing up room due to wet floors, but that is other people spilling all over!

There is a freezer packing freezing service and the owners are always around to tell you about the area etc.

Unfortunately we caught the back end of hurricane Bill whilst we were there and had to cut our stay short due to tent damage, but Jenny has very kindly given us 3 days to use next year - excellent customer service!

Little beach is only 5 mins walk (if you find the cut through!) from the site and is brilliant and the harbour and shops are only 1 mile downhill from the site - loads of other stuff to see in the area.

Well worth braving the M5 traffic for this site and would recommend to everyone - for lovely family hol.

I would like to have seen a little park area for the children - to get them out of our hair whilst we get tea ready or ready for a day out!

Am very excited about going back next year - avoiding random weather tho this time!
