This was our second visit to Leacroft & we found it to be as excellent & welcoming as last year.

We particularly like the fact that, despite the camping area being surrounded by caravans, the site is so peaceful. We love that the pitches are divided by bushes which in September are loaded with the most giant red hips. The site doesn't seem popular in September & we were one of two tents on our arrival, with another couple arriving as we packed up. As a consequence we could choose our pitch. The shower block was scrupulously clean & the showers hot. The site owners are so helpful it has become a firm favourite.

Looking round the site it appeared as if everything had only just been repainted despite it being the end of the season!

We do wonder what would happen if the site were busy, as one pitch in particular had some significant pits which would be noticeable & possibly problematic under a groundsheet.

It seems only a short drive to Seaton.

What a fabulous quiet site! Admittedly we were the only campers for the 8 or so pitches as it was end of season, but the site policy is respect for others & there were caravans pitched all round. The tent area is in the centre of the site, near the reception & the shower/toilet block. There is a laundry room & an activity room. The shop is adequately stocked with those1off items (+ a nice selection of beverages!) which is handy. There are 5 sinks outside under a roof for washing up & free HOT showers. Lovely! Not sure if the block is heated ever, but wasn't when we were there. However, that's not an issue for us.

The site staff couldn't be more friendly & helpful & obviously enjoy their work. Having endured a flat tyre on the way down & arriving very late as a result they were still there to welcome us as we had kept them informed of our estimated arrival time. This was very helpful & took the stress out of the situation.

The pitches are generous & there are 8 electric hook-ups, but the further pitches would need more than a 25m cable. We particularly liked the fact that hedges have been grown as the boundary to each pitch, giving a clear area & some privacy to each. There is a security barrier which is operated by a fob for which a returnable deposit is required on arrival. The site is locked at 11pm but cars can be parked overnight in the car park if late back.

The ground is gently sloping but that was no issue. The soil is slightly stony but pegs went in okay. No issues at all with our hard ground pegs.

We will certainly be returning. Lots!

We have just returned from a 3 day break at this site, Our first visit although we are very familiar with the area because we have family locally. On arrival we were greeted by a friendly warden and shown to our pitch, the grass was immaculate. Water was nearby although the water pressure is a bit low. There are several toilet blocks around the site all kept clean and a small dog walk. However there is lovely dog walking opposite the entrance if your dog needs a real walk. The shop has basics in it.

As a very experienced caravaner the site had everything I required and we will now use the site as our preferred choice in this area. You can pitch for a season and this has been done in a way that they do not look as if they have been placed for months with grass growing up and a shanty town look, they all seem to be on gravel and therefore don't look like a seasonal pitch. They also have storage facilities tucked away.

Any improvements well I suppose the first site that builds a covered swimming pool in this area will be ahead of the competition, no one has one at present, But the owners may consider it more hassle than it is worth. Would recommend this site if you are wanting to stay in the Sidmouth/Seaton/Honiton area.

I stayed at Leacroft in July for 3 nights on my way back from Cornwall to visit friends who keep their tourer on a seasonal pitch, which a lot of people seem to do on this site.

The site is very well laid out, and the owners were very pleasant and very helpful, as I was on my own the owner offered to park my caravan on the pitch I was allocated, it took him a few minuets to position my caravan perfectly.

On the Saturday it was the annual free BBQ and drinks for the people who stay on the site all year on seasonal pitches, I offered to pay for the BBQ as I was only staying for the weekend but I was invited at no extra charge.

When I'm down that way again (im from Rochester, Kent) I would definitely stay at Leacroft again as it is a lovely site.

Just returned home from Cornwall and spent 3 nights on the way home at this site. It's the 3rd. Time we have visited the site, and as on previous occasions found it to be very well kept with large pitches and helpful staff. The only observation we made is that the toilet blocks, although kept clean, needed updating, and the fact there is only one shower in each block could lead to queues when the site is busy. This said, I do recommend this site for it's well kept appearance and ease of access. Lyme Regis is only 10 minutes away, as is Seaton and Beer, all well worth a visit.

Reviewer: Iona and carl 1 review from this member

We have just returned from 2 fabulous weeks at Leacroft (helped that the weather was excellent too) and have already booked to return.

The facilities are good and very clean! Hot showers, which I never had to wait for, despite high season, immaculate pitches and wonderful friendly atmosphere.

2 children (11 and 9) had fantastic time on the play area, with plenty of space to play with their new friends. Shop on site is well stocked and fairly priced, and site is central to lots of beaches within 5-10 min drive. Also loads of local walks right out of the gates.

Seaton has big supermarket, and beer and colyton have local shops, pharmacies and pubs/ eateries etc so there's plenty of amenities nearby.

Staff were helpful and gave great advice on places to go/ things to do etc.

Can't fault this site, you can even see the sea from it! The rules and restrictions are n place to prevent rogue children and dog owners (that we all tut at and moan about when they ruin our holiday) from annoying people who want to enjoy a restful, happy holiday. Great time had by all of us. Thank you and see you again soon.
