After rekindling my love of camping, and purchasing my norty tent treat, we went here for the weekend to try it out.

It's set in a lovely forest location in the triangle between Honiton, Cullompton and Exeter. It's located right next door to a glider club which are launched on a wire - we spent a lot of time watching them on the Saturday.

The arrivals area is spacious, there are multiple fields to choose from - they were quite busy the weekend we went, but even then there was plenty of space

There's a pretty well stocked shop which wasn't too expensive.

If I remember correctly there's a little cafe/takeaway type affair too.

The camping fielsds were protected from the weather by the trees, there were no marked pitches - people tended to stick to the edge of the field.

BBQ bricks were provided, and fire pits were allowed - but only in the appropriate containers. Seems fair enough to me.

The facilities were average. Nothing wrong with them. The water was hot. Just in need of a little bit of love.

In fact I think that's a fair description of the whole place.

The swimming pool was a bit, erm, slimy.

On the whole ok, lovely weekend, lovely weather - not the nicest one I've been to, but not the worst either :)

We have just returned from four nights at Forest Glade. What a lovely site it is. We had an electric pitch (not in the Five Acre field) which was in a small area with room for no more than 15 or so similar tents and it was superb. It was just a 30 second walk to the shower blocks and washing up facilities (there was also a microwave, kettle & toaster available) which were clean and modern. We were pleasantly surprised to see that there was even a washroom with a baby bath and shower hose. There was also a parent & children wash room (shower, sink & toilet)with a lockable door which was excellent, making life with 3 young children very easy at wash times with no escapees! I had a few issues trying to get a cool shower, however hot water was plentiful! Kids play area was great for our three energetic boys, they especially loved the zip wire swing which went from the tree house.

The shop does stock just the basics, but to be honest that's all we really needed, the prices were extremely reasonable too. The pool & changing facilities was clean and the water temperature just right for the hot weather. There was a games room and a small information room with lots of leaflets about local attractions, also a book shelf if you wanted to borrow a book, there was also a freezer for your ice packs (food not allowed) which was very handy!If I had a criticism, it would simply be that the rubbish bins were rather small and it didn't take long for them to be filled up even with a half dozen families in our 'field'. Each area has three bins, one of which is for plastic re-cycling but you cant get much in. Also, for a quiet location we were a bit near the road which seemed to be used by a fair few tankers - it wasn't intrusive, just noticeable during the day time.

The site may well be a few miles from anywhere but that's how we like it and it suited us down to the ground. It is surrounded by beautiful woodland with lots of walkways. As I said earlier we will definitely be back. Lovely place to stay and we plan to explore the forest walks next time.

We found this site both reasonable and in a lovely position for dog walking. Very impressed that they tow the caravan onto your pitch for you. Toilets could have been cleaner and the pool is small but nice and clean. The play park was great and bring so close to the woods it was easy to keep the children entertained. Shop had fresh croissants which was great and we spoke to people who had a seasonal pitch and they were very friendly.

Just came back today having spent 6 days at this site. After arriving early we where shown to the 5 acre field. Very nice large field with gliders going overhead.

After setting up and going to check out the site, it came apparent that the toilets where a walk away from this field. Recommend if camping with small children portable toilet will be needed.

The showers were so hot on the first day I was unable to stand under the spray, the 2 day the showers where cold. I found that if you keep turning the dial the spray did get better.

My daughter didn't like the pool as it was to cold and very slimy. Yuck.

Site is very quite and would suit families with small children.

The on site shop is very good, the prices weren't to bad but please note only got the basics in stock and the local tesco's in town was used on a daily basis.

Staff friendly and as it was raining we were advised that if we got the car stuck a tracker would get us out.

This site is pretty much isolated from any town (cullompton/honiton being the closest 2) If you like walking and just a quiet little site then this is the place for you.

It has a tennis court for those a little more energetic a small ball games field and a larger Adventure playground, kids loved that. The games room is not really up to much could do with being updated, but pool was cheap and table tennis was something different, the games machines were all switched off.

The showers and toilets are great, very clean and enough for all, but the showers were a little cold and quite low, but I am a shorty anyway.

The swimming pool is not large, and the water was freezing, and also all the surfaces were slimy, I handled just 10 mins and then I was done, then went to the showers and they were also cold.

Overall I would say this is a great place for the older generation who want a quiet time away with some nice walks in the woods.

The weather was lovely and sunny when we left Nottingham, and we started our holidays in good spirits.

The next day we went sightseeing, but got back to the tent just in time, as the rain started and went on for 21 hours. Being campers of long standing we didn't let it stop us enjoying our break, but after 10 days we decided to pack up while we had a nice dry day.

We found the campsite clean and tidy, and the management helpful friendly and cheerful. As we were the only tent on the tent site they didn't bother us very much, although there were caravans coming and going.

The only criticism that we had was that the fresh water tap flooded when ever it rained and could do with updating. The disabled shower room needs improving.

Although the toilets and showers were clean and tidy the shower heads could be de scaled for a better flow. We found that some of the dish washing taps didn't work.

All in all we enjoyed our stay and would go back again to try and see it in some sunshine!
