This is the best campsite we have been to in the 10 years we have been camping. The site is beautiful, VERY clean and the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. They guide you to your site and give you a quick rundown of things on the site and bass rules. The shower/toilet block is cleaned thoroughly 4 times a day and the showers are great. Children's play area/badminton net and permanent ping pong table. Fantastic view of the river dart. Bricks provided for levelling. Needs more washing machines. Although it is not a big campsite, there is only 1 washing machine. Could do with a couple more hair driers too, but We will most definitely be returning to this site next year and the following. There is so much to do in Devon and it is like a second home to us

Very welcoming park staff and one of the best views (of the dart estuary) that we have come across.

Facilities are very good. National trust Greenways house within 30 mins walking distance. Dartmouth is within easy access across the higher ferry. Would thoroughly recommend for visiting Dartmouth and the surrounding area.

Management response: Many thanks for your review we are glad you enjoyed your holiday and hope to see you again

PROS. The views of the Dart estuary from virtually all the pitches are splendid. The site is well laid out and carefully maintained, and the wardens are very helpful. The location is good for walking to Greenway, catching the ferry to Dittisham or Dartmouth, or the train from either Galmpton village station or having it stop 'to order' for you by walking across the fields to Greenway Halt. A very quiet site both during the day and especially at night.

CONS. The aspect of the site made it very windy when we were there, with a permanent stiff breeze (rising to strong enough to blow our canopy away twice during our stay!) blowing up the valley from the estuary. Not the campsite's fault, of course, but I wonder whether this is a permanent feature of the site? The toilet block is perfectly clean, but outdated and not up to the standards of the rest of the site, or that the site implies on its website. Improvement / refurbishment of these facilities would make the site even more appealing. There is a shop in the village, just a short walk away, but for convenience the site shop could be better stocked. We paid 7. 50 for WiFi that never worked on our pitch (though it was supposed to), only in the site office. In fairness the site refunded our money, but this service was a factor in choosing the site as I needed to work while we were there, so the fact that it didn't was a disappointment and an inconvenience.

Management response: Many thanks for your review, we are glad you enjoyed your stay but are sorry to hear about the issues you experienced. Thank you for your comments on our loo block, the building has actually had a full refurbishment in the Winter of 2015. We have had new flooring laid, new loos, new shower heads, central heating installed throughout, new toilet and hand dispensers and many more elements added to improve the building that is there. We are aware that the existing building looks dated, however sadly we are unable to knock it down and start again due to our strict planning regulations in the area. It is for this reason that we have refurbed the inside since owning the park.

I believe when you stayed we were experiencing an extreme weather front across the whole country which was unfortunate & unusual for this time of year. We are sorry if this caused difficulties during your stay. An external company have installed Wifi across the park for us called Club Wifi. The signal is excellent across the park & we do ask that if customers have any problems that they let us know immediately so that we can contact the company who are very quick to respond and fix any issues. This was part of the reason for us choosing a local company for installation, so that they can resolve any issues quickly. We are sorry you did not find this satisfactory for your stay.

My wife and I along with our daughter stayed at the Sail Loft house with our friends and their daughter. The location is perfect, within easy distance to several places such as Torquay, Dartmouth and Dittisham. There are many things to do close by such as the steam railway and ferry access. The site is clean and great for families, with a nice park and easy access to dog walks. The staff on site are really friendly and are happy to offer advice on how to plan your day. The facilities in the house overall were good. The only criticism would be a lack of kitchen/cleaning equipment, such as a microwave, mop bucket, vacuum cleaner and ironing board with iron. Also, due to renting holiday properties in the past, we have always had a nice welcome pack such as milk, chocolates and wine.

Management response: Many thanks for your review. It is always helpful when customers give us feedback. Because of your useful comments we have now added additional cleaning equipment to the Sail Loft. We do actually have a microwave for use for the Sail Loft, we just ask for customers to let us know if they require it for their stay as it limits the kitchen surface space if customers do not wish for it. We are sorry if you were not informed this on your arrival. We really like your recommendation for a welcome pack. We have always supplied some coffee, tea and milk sachets but think this is a great idea for future guests so thank you for the tip. We are glad you enjoyed your stay and the area & thank you again for the feedback.

The views where amazing & the site has all you need, only thing is it was VERY expensive! We stayed for one nights, 2 adults 1 three year old & small dog in a campervan with ehu 27!

Stayed on a site near exmouth 4 days before for only 14 night for the same facilities!

This is a good site if you're willing to pay that much.

Management response: Many thanks for your review. We are pleased to hear you like the site. Our tariffs are extremely competitive for the area & we also did not increased our tariffs for 2015, so are sorry to hear that you thought us expensive, but hope you feel that the park was value for money.

The views from this site are the best we have every had after many years of camping. Access to the site is no problem and all of the wardens were extremely helpful and friendly throughout our 5 night stay.

The site is very hilly and it is a difficult site for anyone with mobility problems with the disabled facilities being at the very top of the site with an additional fairly steep slope to reach them, my hubby who is a very mobile and strong wheelchair user did need assistance to reach the facilities.

The toilet block itself is adequate, however it is very dated and needs updating and modernising. The showers were warm enough, but not hot. The pressure for the washbasin sinks was very non existent and I appreciate that we were staying at the end of the season, however only one of the 2 washing machines was working and the only tumble dryer was out of order during our visit.

We would stay at this site again - the views are outstanding and the site is peaceful with a good location and having brilliant walks all round.
