We loved this site. It is so easy to find and to access. A very warm welcome awaits. The site is quite close to the A38, so there is some road noise. We were lucky as the wind was taking any sound away and we could not hear a thing!
Although it is quite a large site it certainly doesn't feel it. All the rows are terraced, with massive pitches. Our pitch was almost level. We were on a single row, with fabulous views across Dartmoor. There are two well appointed toilet/shower blocks, which were both spotlessly clean. Lashing of hot water too! An undercover pot wash area, and family rooms.
The site has numerous animals to see, goats, sheep, pigs, alpacas, donkeys and chickens, etc. All very friendly, so obviously are used to visitors. There are well marked dog walks, and dogs are made very welcome.
There are several beautiful children's play areas, with climbing frames and trampolines.
We didn't use the bar and restaurant, but it looked very popular. The on-site shop was well stocked with essentials.
We walked into Ashburton, about a 30 minute walk, along a country lane. Very pleasant.
All for £12 a night! We will most definitely return to this site.
Just returned from a great week at Parkers Farm caravan park, we are relatively new to caravanning and this was only our second holiday.
On arrival at site although a little early we were very warmly welcomed by the site warden who joked with our kids as he showed us to our pitch.
The site was very clean and tidy and well kept and the toilet block was spotless and cleaned daily.
There were plenty of play areas for the kids as well as all of the animals in the fields around the pitches for the kids to see and the warden did farm tours with any kids that wanted to go each morning where they got to see the animals and help feed them.
The site's club house was great with nightly entertainment such as a quiz, horse racing, karaoke and they even held a Halloween party for all the kids which our kids thoroughly enjoyed getting dressed up for.
The food served in the club house was excellent with very generous portions.
All in all we found Parkers farm to be a great campsite and if I was to have any criticism at all it would be that the week we went there was very little lighting at night around the caravan pitches, I could see there were posts with lights but unfortunately they were not switched on.
This may have been due to this being the last week they were open but it did mean that we needed to have torches handy at all times especially given that in October it tends to be dark very early and also still dark in the early mornings.
The only other minor criticism would be the dog walking area as it is very open and would have been far better if there was a gate to get in and out of the dog exercise areas but these are small gripes on what we found to be a very very good campsite.
We have had another wonderful stay at Parker's Farm! The pitches are generous in lovely surroundings with great views. The toilets are very clean and well maintained and each block has a family room with a large sink to dip little ones in, a private toilet and private shower. The farm is great for families as there are lots of animals (cows, ponies, ducks, hens, pigs, goats, etc) and feeding time is welcomed for all children - with friendly staff. We also had a great tractor tour of the farm. The play areas are brilliant with trampolines, climbing frames, swings and slides and various play areas throughout the site! The bar and restaurant are ideal to enjoy a drink and food before trying to get excited children into bed! We have been back two years in a row and hope to return next year too. There was an extremely good special offer rate for the last week of the summer holidays of £70 for the whole week for a serviced pitch! The only downside is the distant noise from the A39. Love this campsite!
Absolutely fantastic. I am a single mum with two children 4yrs and 6yrs going away with them is usually anything but relaxing. Infact I usually end up home at the end of a holiday tired and more stress than the start. This campsite was fantastic from the moment I pulled up, we were greeted with a very warm welcome and shown to our pitch which had beautiful views, not over crowded, lovely and flat and well maintained. There were alpacas and pigs in the field opposite and a lovely little play area just around the corner. A short walk down to the main area which comprised of a animal corner large play area something for all ages a bar, restaurant and kids play room. The food was very reasonable with VERY generous portions for kids and adults. The warden and staff immediately kept the children entertained which allowed me to eat in peace (a rare treat) My children had a fantastic time and I would recommend to anyone. The only negative is the close by A38 but in all honesty it didn't bother me at all other than that perfect :))
Staying at this site is a must, it is central to many towns and beaches. The accommodation we stayed in was a very clean and almost brand new static, in quiet surroundings, apart from the road noise from the A38, but don't let this put you off. The site itself is based over a wide area with steep access to the statics and dog walking area, the facilities are very clean and extremely well maintained. Farm walk for the kids is brilliant, as is the tractor rides. The evening entertainment is fun, the warden does this and he is absolutely fantastic. We had good weather which was the topping of a fantastic to 2 week holiday.
This is a great site for families. The site was relatively quiet when we went but the staff still made an effort to entertain the children. The playparks are brilliant for the children with lots of equipment for them to wear themselves out on! We took our 2 year old cocker spaniel too but be warned the trek up to the dog field is very steep!
I can't fault the facilities either, toilets always clean and tidy and there is a family bathroom which is great when you have young children.
We only stayed for a weekend so didn't get much chance to visit much nearby but Ashburton is a nice town to visit for an ice-cream!
We have booked to come again in July with friends before leaving we enjoyed it that much!
The only downside is that it is relatively close to the A38 so you can hear the traffic.
