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.

This was a great site. I have stayed in Dawlish Warren as a young child and wanted my step kids to have the same experience. We are 2 adults, 2 kids (11 and 12) and 1 dog.

The site has different size pitches to suit tent sizes. Our tent is quote large and we still had room left. Not completely level but not a problem. There is plenty of open ground on site for children to play without being too close to tents.

Toilet and shower facilities on site were cleaned regularly although due to dewy nights the floors got a bit grassy. Most shower cubicles were unisex which didnít bother us however they did get a bit busy at times so would have been better with a few more. 20p for showers and hairdryers but there are also 2 plugs in the toilet block suitable for hairdryers.

There were plenty of washing up sinks inside the utility block and also washing machines, dryers and irons.

Reception cabin on site had a small stock of essentials and was a life saver when our gas bottle ran out one evening. Local information is on display and also a book swap facility.

Location of the site was excellent. Dawlish Warren is a 10 minute walk down hill and Dawlish Town is a mile and a half walk along the prom. A leisurely stroll takes about an hour. Sainsburys supermarket is about 5 minutes drive away and there is also a small local supermarket in Dawlish Warren. Once a week there is an open air market in a field just round the corner from the site which sold gifts/clothes/sweets and other market type goods.

The beach at Dawlish was lovely. As we had a dog we had to move up to the 3rd section which was accessible along a sandy path. We did not mind as the first 3 sections of the beach got quite busy. The areas accessible for dogs were always slightly quieter.

All in all we had a fantastic break at Leadstone. As we try different areas each year we would probably not be back soon but if we were to come back to the area then we would definitely stay here again.

Arrived late at night in a mazda bongo, 2 adults 2 kids and a dog, warden showed us to our electric hook up pitch no problems.

Toilet block immaculate, 20p for a hot shower, quite happy with this. Children not around in and around toilet blocks alone - totally agree.

Bit of a hilly walk into Dawlish warren and the beach. Just a small place with a few shops, friendly and welcoming though.

Dogs not allowed on first part of beach, walk a further 15 mins to get to dog friendly beach, walk from site to dog friendly beach about 30 mins if you are reasonably fit (with 2 kids and a dog. ), saw a few tired folks complaining about the distance.

Only drove through Dawlish but looked nice.

Only downside for me - site is completely dead from around 10pm onwards, I like a drink, some music and some banter. None to be had here. Some of the neighbours were up and away at 6am!

Never seen so many sites concentrated in one place plenty choice it seems.

Could do with more for the kids in the way of swings etc, they were pretty bored on site.

Have to take dog to another sites dog walking place - 5 min brisk walk away, not perfect.

All in all I would go back and savour the immaculate toilets and many hooks from which to hang your gear!
