Good site the location is handy as is only ten minutes into Dawlish warren and then nice walk into Dawlish itself ( although the beach path isn't quite finished yet )Dawlish. Plenty of shops and eateries. Outside the site you can catch the bus into Torquay and it a scenic journey for £7. 50 return I don't think its too bad. It was very busy when we stayed and lots of children but not really noisy. ( the swing needed oiling though) Toilets and showers were clean enough but are unisex which I personally don't like ( not everyone mops up after themselves)and whilst there was a bucket and mop there wasn't any water in it. Possibly could do with a few more showers for the busy times. For some reason the floor seemed to be wet all the time but all in all a good site the staff were excellent and very attentive. I would visit this site again.

Stayed for the last week in August. Arrived on the Airshow day, very busy on the roads to the site. A good, uncommercial old fashioned camp site. Mainly tents and a few motor homes and caravans. All pitches were grass and the site is pretty sloping. We had a good, level pitch in the corner. Site was full when we arrived, we were expecting it to be busy so no issue with that. The facilities were very busy, queues in the morning, both shower and toilet. Thought that maybe not quite enough facilities for a full site. Though the staff did their best the showers were quite dirty and the floors constantly wet, however the weather was very wet so that didn't help. The water points on site all had the press down taps, bit of pest when filling a large water tank.

Site was clean, well kept and had a very comfortable feel to it.

Dawlish Warren is 10 minutes away on foot, plenty of places to eat and drink. We had dinner in the pub halfway to the Warren, cant remember the name. Good pub, good food and service but not cheap. It was a treat though. The fish and chip shop at the bottom of the hill in the Warren was excellent and not expensive. Didnt try the other take aways but a few deliver to the site. There is a Sainsburys supermarket about a mile from the site.

The area is lovely and lots of places to visit. Teignmouth is a very old fashioned Seaside town, we loved it.

A nice site, may visit again.

Thank you for your comments. Perhaps I can just clarify a few points?

We usually have around 12 season pitches each year spread across 3 of the 4 main fields. We are well advertised as being in 'a natural secluded bowl' - the main touring field 'Field 1' is the levellest but we have plenty of pitches suitable for touring caravans and motorhomes in all 4.

The pitch in the corner of 'Field 3' (63) that backs onto the Farm Shop is very popular! You can see right across the site from there and in winter when all the leaves have fallen you can see the Exe Estuary!

I was on duty on the evening you (Heanorboy) mention and the Subaru was reported to the Devon and Cornwall Constabulary. I hope it did not detract from your stay and Sarah and I look forward to welcoming you again.

Returned from leadstone site which is very pleasant quite and relaxing, the staff are very helpful, we had the option to select our preferred pitch as the site was not busy. We chose the top corner of the field backing onto the farm shop this really was the only flat pitch that was available on the park a very sloping site more suitable for tents than touring caravans. The main caravan field slightly more flatter appeared to be booked for seasonal units. The site shop was small but had the essentials, bread milk etc and adequate information on local interesting places to visit but there is sainsburys 10mins walk away on the A379. The toilet and shower block are immaculate as are the waste and elsan points, Dawlish warren and Dawlish town are easy walking distance and very nice to visit good food at the ugly duckling restaurant at £6. 50 for a carvery meal and the chip shop on the sea front was also good although expensive. The local bus service stops outside the site and we used this to visit teignmouth and Torquay. I would use this again if I could be allocated the same pitch on request. The only negative point was on the Friday night when the local village idiot arrived in his Subaru and decided it was fun to perform doe nuts in 2 of the fields I did not complain to the owners as this is a open site with no deterrent to discourage trespass. All in all a good holiday

We stayed here over half term as the location and facilities looked good for families. The location is great, half a mile to Dewlish Warren and about 1 mile to Dawlish itself. The facilities were also decent with unisex showers (20p for 5 mins) and gents and ladies wash rooms and toilets.

The playground was basic, but the kids seemed happy enough. The pitches are average sized with a large area in the middle, again, good for kids.

The shop was reasonable and did gas exchange. The staff are friendly too.

The pitches are not very flat, which meant you could all roll into one corner of your tent if you're not careful!

Went camping for the first time here, stayed in a tent with a friend whose an experienced camper. I was apprehensive but after searching for a site thought I'd give it a go. Have stayed in static caravans in dawlish warren for many years, so this was a complete new experience.

Arrived and checking in was quick and friendly, was shown to pitch and told we had choice of three, we picked one in the shade of a hedge with the farm shop behind it. Lovely view of field and rest of campsite and toilet was just a minutes walk away brill. I helped friend put tent up, she found ever peg she put in hit a stone and I don't think my laughing helped ease her frustration. Got tent up, put chairs out that was us sorted.

The staff I met were so friendly, the toilets and showers were clean and tidy, even with constant use by kids with grass covered shoes. This was a lovely quiet site, families seemed to be in separate field to those of us without kids.

My only grumble would be a motor home arrived late into the night and even though I could only see 3 doors on it I think about 20 were opened and closed for about half an hour! Then there was a bit of hammering but as it was a camper don't know what was being hammered. Apart from that incident I really enjoyed my stay and will definitely be going back. But with more blankets for a cold night!

Lovely site, congratulations to the owners.
