We returned for the 2nd time to this site in a stunning location. The view across the River Dart and over the fields is beautiful. The shower block still needs updating as it is rather old but clean. We received a warm welcome from reception and the site warden. We walked to Greenways which is a must this time of year as the gardens are stunning as are the gardens at Coleton Fishacre, also worth a visit. We also walked to Brixham stopping off at Churston Ferrers for drinks in the 13th century Churston Court. The walk took us through some lovely countryside including Marridge Woods. The Manor Inn in Galmpton village is a must. Friendly atmosphere and great food. We enjoyed a lovely few days with glorious weather.

Our first visit here. This site has stunning views across the River Dart and surrounding countryside. Staff were friendly and informative. The toilet/shower block is in need of being updated but the washing up area we found was very good. The Manor Inn in the village is well worth visiting with an excellent menu and friendly staff. We visited Greenway House, the summer residence of Agatha Christie. This is a must with lovely views across the Dart. Also got the foot ferry to Dittisham where we had lunch in The Ferry Boat Inn. I can highly recommend the pate with brandy. Absolutely wonderful as were the views. Will definitely return.

Fabulous.

What a truly fantastic find. Really, believe me. The website lives up to the content too.

Pre booking - fast, efficient, friendly. My various questions answered at length.

Arrived to warm and informative welcome and warden coming over to ensure we had parked up and settled.

Spacious site, every pitch views towards the River Dart and Devon's rolling hills - which is utterly stunning view and can be easily viewed from all areas of the site.

Spotted very large and sturdy children's playground with lots of 'things' for them to climb about on.

Excellent dog walking area.

Well kept spacious pitches. Short walk to shower block and small shop at reception. Loads of usual facilities dotted about i. E. Taps, rubbish etc. Pleased to see a recycling area near reception too.

Short walk into town with good pubs that serve food.

We liked the fact that we could walk to lots of different places and activities. The famous Agatha Chrisie house Greenways is nearby, the ferry to Dittisham, catch the steam train (15 mins walk) to Paignton or over to fabulous Dartmouth.

Dogs welcome and clearly children too on the site and the steam train and the river boat cruises.

Had a chat to the charming owners who told us that having recently taken over the site there are plans afoot to invest and update the shower block. There is absolutely nothing wrong with it as it is, it was clean, spacious and functional (with incredible views of the river!) but I can see they they may wish to modernise. And I can tell from speaking to them, that when improvements are made they will be of the highest standards. (See the holiday flats they are doing up at the moment!)

What a super site, what a warm welcome, what a stunning location, we stayed 3 nights and regretted having already booked elsewhere for the rest of the week.

We will be back - and rather took a shine to the holiday flats which were being refurbished whilst we were there. Again, the views, the views, the views.

A truly family friendly and dog friendly site in an incredible setting.

This site is a must if you like sitting down and watching outstanding sunsets over the River Dart.

Very pleasant staff on this site and well maintained.

It is up a hill from the village but if you stay here you must try the butchers next to the galleon stores (which is a well stocked post office and grocers), their meat is to die for. Their sirloin steaks were melt in the mouth. The people are very friendly in the village which has a pub which serves good beers.

Down below you is a wonderful scene of moored boats, pleasure boats and if you take the time to walk down the road(unsuitable for motors)is the very sad sight of a world war two Fairmile motor boat. (Oh to win the lottery and restore it !). You can see it over the fence in the lower field.

There is a Thai/Indian takeaway in Brixham delivers to site, really nice food(Menus in information block).

This site is definitely worth a visit.

Stayed 2 nights at this beautiful site, which has fantastic views across the river Dart. I would advise campervan to take chocks as although the hard pitches look level, they aren't (and if you have a vw like us your fridge won't work!) Lovely greeting and we were shown to our pitch. Whilst the pitches were separate and defined, they felt close together and it would have been difficult to put up a large awning. Some of the grass pitches looked a little muddled. My only real complaint was the distance to the loos -we don't have facilities in our van and it was quite a trek to the toilet block. I shouldn't moan though as I expect they would have moved us if we had asked! The toilet block was very clean (there was a large spider in the shower but hey I'm a country girl so not a problem!). It did look a little dated but for the price we paid it was very acceptable. We were a little disappointed that on our last night, some younger campers in a tent made enough noise to keep us awake - we aren't that old but are used to sites where noise after 11 is banned. But again we didn't complain so can't moan too much. All in all a beautiful site, good value for money with lots to do in the area. No doubt we will be back!

This was our second visit to this campsite and will definitely not be the last! All round excellent site, stunning views, great facilities, very child friendly, staff all very helpful and polite.

The under 5's bathroom was excellent as both my children hate showers so this was used most nights after visits to the beach and playing in the parks!

Bricks are very handy to find for use with disposable BBQs.

All facilities were clean and tidy, only thing I found was the showers were not overly hot and I used them at different times of the day, but not worth complaining about as everything else is excellent.
