Ladys mile is not a quiet site it is busy.

We went for 3 weeks in August in our tourer.

The showers are ok but not good pressure and very little shelves to put your stuff. They have private washrooms as well and free hairdryer but its not very good.

The clubhouse is not big enough for the amount of people on the site in peak season. You have to get there by 5. 30 if you want to sit near the stage. Any other area gives you very little view of the stage. Drinks are very expensive but I can recommend the flavoured cider from somerset you can add whatever flavour you like cherry was the best.

The kids loved the pool and it is quite warm the slides are great indoors and out. You must keep an eye on the kids as it gets quiet busy and the lifeguards cant see everything.

The playground and zipwire was very popular with our 7 and 10 year old.

Dawlish Warren beach is not far if you go out the back of the site from zipwire. It is lovely and has a lifeguard on duty on one part. I recommend the welcome inn pub for the carvery and entertainment in high season.

The washing machines kept breaking down so had to go to reception a lot who told me to go back to launderette to wait for repair man who never came. Went back to reception and finally got my money back.

I think electric should be included for the cost of pitch.

Lovely staff on site wardens and shop staff very helpful.

Food in restaurant is great.

Crealy is the best day trip to do as you can validate your tickets then return for the next 6 days for no extra cost.

Pennywell farm fab you can cuddle the pigs !

Site is hilly choose your pitch carefully. Chocks required.

We did a 3 night stay at the start of August but because it facilities were so crowded and busy we ventured into Dawlish instead. We pitched at the very back of the site and the walk into Dawlish wouldn't be so bad if they hadn't blocked off the access to the main road. We were happy with the amount of space the children had to play despite the rest of the park being so busy but for the price we paid it would be better if the site could offer a cheaper option for those that don't wish to use the facilities? We won't return in August but might consider camping at a different time of year.

A disappointing stay this year. A very busy park with just rows and rows of touring caravans - no room for the children to play outside. It does have a park but we were very far away from it. This is definitely more of a commercial 'pontins' type park - if you a family that like a game of rounder's outside your tent then this is not the park for you.

Nice pools but very busy as they let local residents use it. Evening entertainment was adults only bingo from 7pm so not very family friendly. Not one of the cheaper parks either. Have to also pay for electric cards when you get there. You buy a card that you top up to use the games machine - thus enabling them to charge you £1. 50 for games instead of the usual pound. They are definitely out to make a profit!

We have just returned from Lady's mile, we booked last minute as an add on to a trip to Cornwall.

Positives.

The site and toilets/shower blocks were clean and tidy

The shop was always fully stocked

The play area was safe and secure, surrounded by high fences and rubber flooring.

Negatives

The bar was really expensive

The amusements were on a card system which you had to top up at the bar, the kids swiped the card instead of carrying cash which you may think is a safer option HOWEVER they spent the money faster, and the top up machines never worked, each game was extremely expensive e. G one grab on the grabber machine is £1. 25!

The pool was nice but really over crowded.

Overall not the best experience and we will not be returning in a hurry.

We had a great weekend. The pool is lovely with a flume my son spent hours in the pool. There's a dog walking facility. It's a flat site good amount of space. The welcome inn just down the road does lovely food and it's value for money. We will visit again. It's a clean child and dog friendly site. It's close to Torquay Brixham and Exeter there are lots of places near by even if it's raining.

We spent 4 nights at Lady's Mile from 19-23 August. We chose this site because we were taking three of our school-age granddaughters camping and two of them were going camping for the first time. According to their website, Lady's Mile offered everything we would want for three young children including a decent play park, swimmimg pools, and indoor play areas.

Arrival was fine and staff were very helpful in explaining the barrier system and the use of the power cards. We found a decent pitch fairly easily. The pitches measure 10m x 9m which just was big enough for our very large 7 x 7. 5 m tent and car. However, it was very crowded. The term 'packed like sardines' springs to mind at Lady's Mile! I guess it was the time of year and the excellent weather, but this site seemed over-crowded with very little room around the pitch for our grandchildren to play. All pitches are next to a road and with the site being so busy, cars frequently moved up and down the road making it a little dangerous.

The facilities are just about OK. We were pitched quite close to the main club and reception complex and used the attached toilet/shower block. This is tired and worn out, Poor showers and dim lighting (inside and outside) require fixing urgently as does the total lack of lighting in the dish washing area. Most of the time the toilets smelt quite bad. There is a need for individual cubicles for washing rather than in an open area where you are washing while people are using the urinals.

The shop is quite well stocked and reasonably priced, but the takeaway food shop is very limited.

We used the swimming pools and found these to be pretty good, but very overcrowded for their size! The use of inflatables in the pools needs to be better controlled as they presented a danger to young children.

The main play park is very good, but got very crowded. The smaller children's play area is very poor!

We didn't use the club at all, but this was very noisy late at night and did cause a problem for getting our grandchildren to sleep. Another problem are the gangs of apparently drunken teenagers staggering around the site when the club has closed. I would have made a complaint but I couldn't identify anyone.

So overall, I would come back to this lovely area but not during peak times and I will never come back to Lady's Mile!
