This is a small but very well maintained site in a sheltered rural location. Staff friendly. Grass short - be warned lawn mowing seemed to happen on a daily basis! Drainage: can't really comment as it didn't rain heavily whilst we were there. Wifi (free) worked well for basic Google searches and email. Reception sells basics but expect to drive for pubs and shops. There are supermarkets in Okehampton but all of the petrol stations on the A30 also included a mini-shop which may meet your needs. The site toilet block was new and spotlessly clean but relatively small. It may struggle to cope when the site is full. There is a decent sized playground but not anywhere suitable for kicking a football or flying a kite.

Beware of the complex junction of the A30, A382, A3124 and the road to the site, I think it is called Whiddon Down: on three occasions we met cars you turning on the slip roads. Keep your eyes peeled!

Things to do: we drove to Bude for a day at the seaside, had a day walking on Dartmoor and then a day sightseeing. Brentor church on the western side of the National Park is a stunning location. The church is left open. Closer to base is Castle Drogo (National Trust) but presently covered in scaffolding and plastic! Fingle Bridge is a lovely wooded gorge - perfect for a paddle in the stream or picnic. There is also a very pretty pub but we didn't go in.

Stayed here for two nights before traveling down to Cornwall. Small campsite but well looked after. Toilet facilities were spotlessly clean with plenty of hot water for the showers. We didn't have any children with us but noted a small play area and a pool table indoors for when it's raining. We did have our small dog with us and the tiny dog area was adequate for us but if you had a larger dog then you would have to go off site to exercise it. Good location, we visited Castle Drogo and Exeter Cathedral which was stunning. Next time we visit we will stay longer.

This site is a typical club site, very clean, tidy and a credit to the managers. The grass was cut and tidy there weren't even any bald patches even though we were there late in the season, even the flower beds looked good.

There are many places to visit and the area is very scenic, but sadly for us there are no safe walks direct from the site, the nearest one means a walk up a very fast and busy road with bends for approx. 700 yards and we thought with 2 dogs this was unwise. Yes I know we can unhook and take the van but we preferred to move on.

So don't think we will return but still a good stopover if travelling to the west country.

A jewel of a site, great location, easy to find, within easy reach of local attractions by car, bike or foot. Small site and very friendly because of it. Very warm welcome but not intrusive. Site is kept immaculate. Facilities small and quaint but terrific. Good showers kept spotlessly clean, all you could want. Free WiFi included in the price and it works throughout. Apparently C&CC club rules don't allow the franchisees to advertise the WiFi. Given its inclusion the site is very good value for money. Try it!

Revisited the site for one night after a visit in early 2014. A bit of an early season try out for the camping gear: I found I had forgotten my EHU lead, but no problems, the helpful lady in the office lent me a spare lead. The site seems just as nice as I remember. Facilities are not very big, but very clean. My partner found the ladies showers good and well arranged, though no seat or stool in cubicle. Free wifi gave a good strong signal, and an extra aerial has been installed. Majority of pitches are hard standing with grass pitches in middle of site. A path way across grass to facilities would be handy when the grass is wet, if you are pitched on the south side of site, or you need to make a detour around the gravelled track to get there. As observed in previous reviews there is noise from bikers and other vehicles on road to north of site, especially at weekends and Sunday afternoon: the evening seemed OK. Recommended site, but try to pitch on south side if you stay over weekend.

Stayed here last year for a couple of nights as a stop over for a journey to Cornwall, we were so impressed we thought we would come back for a longer stay, firstly the site is very well kept and clean, hard standing and grass pitches are available also ehu, the owners are very friendly and help full and are I mind of information, the only down side is the traffic noise from the road at the weekend and bank hols, it is used by motor bikers as a test track the noise is unbearable from quite early to late evening, also there is a barking dog in the distance that just won't stop, toilets and showers are clean and well kept, small shop on site with the basics, also there is a children's play area, I would use the site again as the owners are very helpful especially when we asked to be moved to another pitch further away from the road, so to sum up get a pitch on the furthest side from road or take some ear plugs with you.
