We stayed here for three nights.

First ever site we have asked to change plots because we could 3 foot away from watching people emptying their chemical toilets lovely when your having tea, also there was an odour around the caravan.

No problem we thought, well one particular lady on reception thought it was and put every conceivable barrier in place to stop us moving, eventually she reluctantly agreed but was very rude and short throughout the process despite there being lots of empty plots around(she did not ask the reason why we wanted to move!)

The site is not that well maintained and the toilet block is old and needs a good refurbishment.

The were 3 minibuses full of older children getting drunk and being sick hardly a nice experience.

Trust me this site is mostly sold because of the view

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.

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 The toilet block is perfectly clean, but outdated and not up to the standards of the rest of the site, or that the site implies on its website.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.

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.

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.

Reviewer: Alimilly 4 reviews from this member

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.
