If you enjoy excellent views and a well kept site it's the place for you.

If you like privacy on a full service pitch it's NOT the place for you.

Full service pitches are steeped on gravel roads which run right up to and out side the vans pitch.

I have no problem being friendly but object to having to keep the blinds down to stop being nosed at 1st thing.

The service pitches are on full gravel were the awning 'has to be pitched. The office tried to say it's because of the red soil! Has south Devon ever had different soil!

So if you suffer any kind of walking difficulty be aware

The car van and awning all have to go on the gravel with a small grass patch between you and the next pitch.

However inconsiderate people claim they have pitched to far over and park there car on others grass. Not on there own!

This happened to us and a number of other pitches while we stayed here.

The wardens although friendly and helpful seam reluctant/scared of approaching the culprits.

There is one toilet block which is a the top of the park which is cleaned each day. There are amble bins for rubbish but the recycling is only at one location.

There is no good lighting at night on site

Beautiful views and a well kept site, but sadly not the site for us.

This was our 2nd visit to this lovely site. We can't think of any negatives about it. The site is well managed by friendly, helpful and knowledgeable staff, they make time for everyone, but aren't intrusive and give a cheery 'hello' no matter how busy they are! They live on the site so there is no noise at night. The facilities are good and clean. Our kids are grown up so we didn't use the playarea, but we were tempted; the kids looked like they were having fun! It's the location of the site is really sets it apart. The views from all pitches range from good to stunning. The best one of all is from the toilet block so everyone gets this one! The site is close to public transport links. (15 minute walk to the main bus route and the steam railway) Key resorts are close by but you wouldn't know when you are on site. It has an 'away from it all' feel. It is a hilly area, which wasn't a problem for us, indeed it's what makes it so pretty. We definitely recommend the site and will return :):)

Just returned from a 4 night stay. A lovely site with spectacular views across the River Dart and surrounding countryside. Friendly and helpful staff. Local village pub Manor Inn serves great food. The walk to Brixham is a must. Greenway House and grounds are spectacular. We were hoping the shower block would have been updated since our last visit 2 years ago, but it wasn't. However, this didn't spoil our stay.

This large site has excellent views over the river Dart. Staff friendly and as others have said the toilet/showers a bit dated though with plenty of hot water. Was on a four for three night deal via their website which represented good value. Used the local pub the Manor a couple of times, nice friendly pub but thought the food rather average for the price and the real ales a bit below par and be prepared for a steep walk back if on foot. A 10 min bus service from the main road which we used for visits to Brixham, Kingswear, Paignton and Torquay which takes a 15-20 min walk and involves a couple of steep hills. Exceptionally quiet at night.

Was very grateful to the site manager to be able to stay here as I turned up late and they could not have been more helpful.

The site is, as others have said, very well kept and clean.

My little one person tent was a bit lost on the generous sized plots, but that didn’t matter as the views from the door over the Dart were fantastic. Note: I think the site is priced per pitch rather than per person, so as a back packer, with a car, as I was, made the price per night seem higher than that which I would normally pay just for a small pitch. – no complaints though.

Good spot as a walking base, easy to walk down to National Trust’s ‘Greenway’ with continuation down the valley to Kingswear, from where you can get a bus back.

Good pub, ‘The Manor’ just 600M from the site.

Dog-friendly site which was lovely and quiet during our late September visit, well laid-out with stunning views over River Dart. Very welcoming and helpful staff. Toilet/shower block a bit dated but very clean. Plenty of good dog walks direct from site which suited us really well as it meant we could leave the motorhome on-site. Short walk to dog-friendly pub too. Will definitely go back to explore more in the area. A very small on-site dog field but with walks so close it wasn't really a problem.
