Reviewer: Jtyson 5 reviews from this member

Excellent well maintained site! The site is just off the A38 with a welcoming reception and shop which is well stocked with some camping basics, kids books etc. , basic food and drink. There is also a freezer available for you to freeze ice packs. On arrival, we checked in and were taken to the grass field where we could choose our pitch (non EHU). The pitches are very large and surrounded by hedges which provided some shelter on windy days. The grass was kept short which meant on wet days the rain soaked away well. We had great views of rolling hills of farmland and enjoyed walking around the site for even better views over to Dartmoor. There are bins and drinking water at the edge of the field.

The layout of the site works really well and nothing is too far away. The grass field is on the edge of the site with the rest of the EHU pitches being tiered so just one row of pitches at a time. All pitches are clearly marked out and spacious. There are 2 amenities blocks situation in the middle of the site which was only a short walk for us even though the grass field is on the edge of the site. There are 3 toilets and 2 or 3 showers in each block with plenty of space to get changed with mirrors, hand driers and hairdryers. Plenty of hot water and great showers with no timers. There are also family shower rooms in each block and plenty of sinks to wash pots. If you have a caravan or campervan there are the relevant waste water disposal points.

Around the site there are multiple playgrounds for children which I think works better than one large one. There is an enclosed grass football pitch on the grass field which was great for us as we could allow the children to safely play but still be able to see them from the pitch. The other playgrounds had swings, slides and trampolines which the kids loved. Also around the site are animals, just a few of each in the fields around the site which gave the kids something to be interested in and visit each day. We had alpacas nearest, then ponies and pigs. Every few days there is a kids walk around the site where they can feed the animals and then have a tractor ride round the site.

There is an on site restaurant and bar which have a good selection of food of really good quality. The restaurant had a room that allowed dogs if you wanted to take them with you. There is entertainment each day around 4pm which was aimed at the kids or light family evening entertainment around 7:30pm.

The site had a lovely feel about it and all the staff were very friendly and approachable, especially Gary who was great with the kids. The site was almost full when we were there in the middle of the summer holidays but it never felt overcrowded. We never queued for the toilets or showers and they were kept exceptionally clean. We had a great time and would recommend to anyone with any accommodation type. We stayed 11 nights and can't wait to return.

Location wise itís a great base to visit Devon. We visited all the coastal towns as well as local towns and Dartmoor. There are a number of local attractions such as country parks and steam trains.

Very easy to get to, just a short bit of narrow lane leading to the site. A38 noise didn't seem to exist for us but that may have been wind direction. Ultimately you can't have easy access then complain about traffic noise.

The site itself, reception is very organised. Shown to our pitch by a helpful and knowledgeable warden. The pitches themselves are tiered up the side of the hill. A good mix of tents, caravans and motorhomes. It was quiet wet for 2 of our days, the grass pitches coped very well with no flooding.

Toilet / shower area very clean, very modern. Showers especially good with no time limits on water. As always first thing in the morning they were very busy but that is true for most sites.

There are some animals on the site, chickens, rabbits, alpacas etc. Plenty of play areas for kids and a bar / restaurant area that seemed popular.

It's possible to walk into Ashburton in 30-40 mins down an extremely narrow road.

A very good place for a ' touring centre ' or stop off to breakup a long journey.

Other site users seemed very friendly and this seemed like a popular site for families.

We stayed here for a one night stopover, we hadn't booked in advance and the staff were really helpful. The site was excellent value for money with large flat pitches and really good facilities including free hairdryer in the ladies shower room. There is a bar on the site with a small sun terrace and a well stocked shop. There is traffic noise from the A38 but for one night that was fine. We would definitely use this site again.

Our first time at this site and I must say we were not disappointed.

The staff were very helpful, the toilets and showers cannot be faulted. I was worried about the narrow lane leading to the site but it was easy as there are passing places so easy towing the caravan. The site is very clean and well laid out. We WILL be returning the next time we go to Devon.

Fab site. Staff v helpful and pleasant. Shop available on site and also an info place for local events and things. Nice children's play area and fames room but I didn't go here. Pub on site but quiet great for hot food and drinks if ur camping like me.

Toilets and showers spotless as are the food prep areas.

Despite being a hilly place all of the pitches for tents and caravans were level.

It was a howling gale for 2 nights when I was there and was the only one in the field. Closeness of the road didn't bother me at all and I have had closer in other places.

Was v convenient for me and Torquay is not that far away. I will certainly be going back as despite the rain I had s good time

Just had an excellent 4 days over Easter 2017. We had 3 touring caravans, 7 adults and 5 kids and fun was had by all. The toilets/showers were great, the staff were amazing and the restaurant food was very tasty. The site laid on plenty of activities including farm walks, evening entertainment and an Easter egg hunt. The kids did not want to leave to come home, and to be honest, nor did I. We were last at Parkers Farm over 12 years ago and got to say its as nice now as it was then. Cannot wait til we return.
