Reviewer: Johnabacus 15 reviews from this member

Used this campsite for a one night stay after dropping a friend's son off at Exeter University. On arrival we had a problem. In the phone call to book the site I was told to use Pitch number 1. When we arrived there was a car parked in it, which it turned out belonged to one of the people working for the Events company which share use of the site. Two other pitches were occupied by a van from the Events company and a trailer. On speaking to another camper who was a friend of the owner he suggested parking on the grass between the pitches which is what we did. The photos of the site are cleverly arranged to minimise the extent the Events company occupy the site.

It was a bit scary walking the dogs on the road outside the site as there is no footpath and traffic does come along at speed.

The facilities are adequate and unlike some other reviewers comments we found them spotless. The owner came to see us the following morning and was very friendly. We mentioned we planned to go the Farm Shop for breakfast and she told us of Caras which is in the nearby industrial estate (follow signs for Raceworld Indoor Karting. ) Excellent value huge breakfast with free top up of tea/coffee.

Within easy reach of Exeter which seems like a lovely city.

We stayed here for a short break to visit Exeter and Exmouth. The site was conveniently located for both and was easy to find. The owners were friendly and we were offered any windfall cooking apples from the tree next to our tent although when they started falling on it in the early morning we wished we had pitched a couple of feet further away.

The site was very clean, tidy and well maintained. It seems more geared to caravans than tents with hard standing for caravans and cars parked on the grass areas between. For tents it works the other way round: tents on the grass, cars on the hard standing. We have two three-man tents for us and our two adult boys and there was plenty of space to pitch both and set up our limited kitchen facilities. The site was also quiet and although it was shared with the event company this was not a problem. The only noise problem was the late (10 pm) arrival of a largish part after dark who made a considerable racket setting up just when we were trying to get to sleep.

Shower and toilet facilities were very good, clean and free. The showers are more wet room than shower cubicle so there was plenty of room. The one downside is that the water is heated by gas cylinder. If it runs out you have to phone the owners who, in our experience, will change it quickly but not sure what you do if the gas runs out half-way through a shower. There is also a covered area for washing up.

The only local facility we used was the Cat and Fiddle Inn at Clyst St Mary, which is a short drive away and is excellent.

There is no play area and the pitch area is quite compact so it would not be ideal for young children to run around.

Things to do.

The model railway at Exmouth is not worth a trip: it was the worst I've ever seen. The crazy golf next door was fun and we enjoyed a walk along the coast path. Top tip: you can park at the cricket club car park for half the price of the long stay on the front and the club has the benefit. It just past the car park.

In Exeter we enjoyed the underground passages. We had a look around the guildhall (free) and took a walking tour (also free) which we would recommend as the guide we had very informative and took us to places that we would otherwise have just walked straight past.

So the acid test. Would we stay there again? Yes, absolutely.

The site is not too difficult to find, the postcode gets the satnav close enough. The site itself has been well laid out with mostly hardstandings for caravans and a few grass areas for tents. Getting set up was no problem, every pitch has electric hookup, there were plenty of taps and a tidy area for rubbish and recycling items. The site owners also have an Events Business so there are some items stored on the periphery of the site but it was basically tidy and safe. The owners were not present when I signed-in but both made a point of coming to say Hello and to welcome us to the site so that was commendable. There are no debit/credit card facilities so it's cash or cheque for payment. The toilet facilities are intriguing. They're a bit of surprise in their design but the showers were exemplary (even more so being free and were needed a lot in the hot weather) and the whole area was kept clean though a paper dispenser in the Gents became inoperable and was like that for three days so perhaps a more regular program of cleaning and checking is needed. There is no doubt that we would stay there again, it is close to the Exeter M5 and was a good base for touring the area. Our Thanks to the Owners.

We have just spent a week here and were really impressed with this small site as the pitches are good size, it is clean and well kept, the showers (one ladies, one gentleman)are spacious wet rooms with lovely hot water and there is a clean toilet block. This was an ideal place to camp and relax, away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives. We walked easily to the 2 pubs and both serve good food and are very friendly. The washing up facilities were good and undercover(not like some we have used)All in all this site is just as it states nice quiet situated near many of the attractions of the area but does not have a specific play area for children but there is enough area around the pitches for children to play. We loved this site and are planning to visit again next year.

We have just returned from a long weekend at Brooklands.

What a great little campsite. If you want a relaxed, quiet and friendly site then this is the one for you. We have a 28' RV and on arrival the owner not only greeted us personally but made sure we had the right pitch for our RV. The showers and toilets were clean and warm and not too far away from our pitch. There are 2 pubs close by both doing great food and a bus stop 2mins away taking you to Exmouth or Exeter. Great site great location. If you go give the farm shop and vineyard a visit well worth the effort both on the doorstep.

I stayed with friends in their caravan last weekend, and we had the best time, such a lovely site owned by very friendly helpful people in the owners. Supplying us with the essential Pimms jugs and ice! The facilities on the site are excellent clean and warm! the local pub at the top of the road does excellent food with a good atmosphere, the nearby farm shop has a varied menu and sells all kinds of locally grown/reared products.

I'm no camper but I could get hooked staying in such a great place!

Oh and thanks for the cooking apples they were delicious.
