A fantastic CL site, we received a very warm welcome from the owner on arrival, he was friendly and very helpful, the site is in a good position to many of the attractions and resorts of the area. Various superstores in near proximity, so you can stock up and not spend half your holiday food shopping!
The site itself is well maintained, with good spacing of pitches, numerous water points, an electronic security gate and a secure chemical disposal point. The neighbouring field to our pitch had a gaggle of geese in it, which although a great novelty for the kids concerned us due to noise, however they proved to be perfect neighbours and went to bed at 8pm and did not get up again until 9am each morning.
Can't recommend this site enough if your are looking to visit South Devon
An ok CL on a smallholding with lovely animals and birds, near to Kingskerwell and about 4 miles from Newton Abbot, 5 miles from Torquay so usefully situated. Easy to get to both the coast and Dartmoor. It has a hardstanding area and appears to be the only CL in the area with this, which is why we chose it for our Christmas getaway.
To find the site, turn right off the A380 where the Barn Owl pub sign appears, then follow the directions in the CC book. Entrance is through 2 gates, a metal electric one, then a wooden one. The site is a short concrete drive with an area of hardcore to the right, plus a rather sloping grass area. Plenty of ehu to choose from. The downside is that it's rather scruffy looking, it is a working smallholding after all, but the site name would suggest that is landscaped in some way, not the case. Dave the owner is friendly (as is his cat!).
Free WiFi is a big plus, otherwise apart from ehu there are no other facilities. The price as stated in the CC book is £11, which is perfectly acceptable, but their website states £15, which would not be. We were charged £11 'because it's Christmas', so would suggest asking when you book. Sky TV signal is very easy to find, considering that the site is in a valley. Views are somewhat restricted by this. It would be no good for children, nowhere to run around.
