Reviewer: Suzie2poos 7 reviews from this member

This is a no frills basic site on the edge of Dartmoor. The campsite has two large fields both with some sloping but enough flat areas for the number of campers present when we visited during the bank holiday period. We found pitching our tent really easy in the soft ground and we had enough shelter to protect us from the wind, having chosen to pitch up next to a hedgerow.

The toilet facilities are basic but perfectly adequate with toilet roll and soap topped up daily. In the ladies there were 3 loos and 2 showers but queuing was never an issue, I only had to queue once for the shower and that was for no more than 5 minutes.

Two washing up sinks are also provided along with chemical disposal and drinking water. There is also a small collection of tourist information brochures and a number of clearly labelled recycling bins. We only saw the campsite staff on arrival, they were polite and efficient.

The site is in a very picturesque area and it's location is close to Dartmoor and within driving distance of the coast between Plymouth and Exeter. Some of the roads near the site are very narrow and bendy however there were many caravans on the site and drivers on the whole were patient and polite in stopping to allow people passed. Ashburton is a small but pleasant town with some nice pubs and a few shops.

This was our first visit to Summerhill Farm. We were pleasantly surprised on arrival at the stunning views and the amount of space. We were on one of the ehu pitches with plenty of room. The only slight negative was the length of the grass, but that was a minor concern. We never had to wait for the loo's or showers, and although they were pretty basic, they were always very clean. The farm is set on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, and less than 30 mins drive to Teignmouth, Torquay & Brixham. We would certainly stay here again.

we were recommended this site and it was all that it was said to be.

The site is huge the owner friendly and the facilities clean with free showers and hot water to wash your pots and pans. We were a group of 6 Tents and although we complied with the rules others did not. The site owner must get to grip with the anti social users as they made a mess and a noise.

Reviewer: Crowievfr 1 review from this member

This is without doubt a lovely and picturesque site. The facilities are small but clean and tidy. All the above comments are correct. I would have no problem recommending this site and would visit again.

However I can't give a 9/10 but for one thing. If a site has rules then surely they must be implemented or they are worthless. When we visited there were no less than six dogs running about with out leads. Although returning to their apologetic owners when called it is a breech of the site rules. Some of the stand pipes had to be turned off because a small group of children kept playing with them and leaving them running. I was told that in the dog cases the campers had been told but they took no notice and would be leaving soon anyway. The children had been told repeatedly but they and their parents just hurled abuse. So why were these people not ejected from the site? The printed sheet of rules given on arrival is quite clear but is worthless if not implemented. Get it sorted Summerhill Farm

We visited for a week, which also included August Bank Holiday weekend. Loads of space available - it was surprisingly quiet on the campsite.

The shower block was basic but very clean - we never had to wait for a free shower, even though there are only 2 available per gender.

Staff are friendly and helpful. They have a freezer available to re-freeze ice blocks and charge 1 to charge your phone/tablet (if you supply the charger).

Great value at 5 per person per night.

Some farm noise (animals and machinery) but nothing that worried us, under canvas.

Ashburton town is walkable (very nice). Buckfast Abbey is cycleable, as well as Buckfastleigh (can recommend their Chinese take-away!). Plenty of walking to be had in Dartmoor, so don't forget your walking boots!

We chose this site as a base to explore the Devonshire coast whilst also being close to Dartmoor and Buckfast Abbey it is well situated and easy to reach surrounding areas but don't rely too much on your sat nav!

The site is large and generally level with a very clean shower, toilet and washing up area block. Ample black wheelie bins but the owner seemed to be having a constant daily battle fishing out recycling.

General farm noises as this is a working farm it has to be expected but to us that just added to the countryside camping feel of getting back to nature.

A lovely site.
