This site is mainly static vans and seasonals, with two small areas for touring. It is well maintained attractive, with excellent facilities. The staff were very helpful and friendly, the food in the bistro was excellent (the steak deal on Mondays was superb). There is much to do and enjoy in the area (the House of Marbles at Bovey Tracey is a must). The only downside is that the pitches are rather small - it is difficult to maintain the 6 metre safety gap and impossible if too many put up awnings. Excellent special offers on fees outside the main season.

Arrived late out of the blue and rang the emergency phone to which it was promptly answered and the young lady Hannah came down to check us in. Very quick and efficient and very polite and helpful, showed us where to go. Our pitch was a fully serviced hard standing in the top field and was lovely and quiet of an evening.

The washrooms were very clean and the same lady along with another one seemed to always be in there cleaning the toilets and showers. The shop offers papers in the morning and the essentials if caught short, both friendly receptionists and helpful too.

The bistro was lovely and food was great quality and a decent portion.

Overall quite a nice site, the roads could do with some up keep but the staff definitely make the site. All staff were friendly always acknowledging us either a wave, smile or a hello which was lovely and made us feel so welcome. The site makes a great base for exploring and was perfect for us. My only criticism would be that the cleaner seemed lazy as I caught her a couple of times hanging around the shower block not doing anything and once was sat on the vanity unit in the female block. Also for families with older children they would need to be entertained in the day as there is only a small play park on site. Would come back later in the year for another longer stay.

We have just returned from staying on this site, which was well looked after, we stayed in the orchard field which was well laid out and flat, however in the evening it could benefit from some lighting on the field as it was very dark. The on site restaurant was dog friendly but not brilliant, mediocre food and slow service we found they often ran out of items on the theme nights such as naan breads on curry night, wasn't overly busy either. Although they did have theme nights ie steak night curry night etc.

Brilliant staff and location for site seeing.

Visited end of june 2014 reception very friendly as were all the staff, great views from site overlooking the estuary towards exeter, toilets were very clean with plenty of room in showers to hang clothes, the only criticism would be that the roads needed to be improved a lot of loose stones, otherwise a great site well situated for touring east devon

Lovely site in a delightful area. Totally quiet and peaceful.

Having said that, the best thing was the price. Being of the 'Grey Nomad' brigade our caravanning is confined to term time and with the various discounts it was 70 for the week for a hardstanding fully serviced pitch.

Site is beautifully kept and each pitch is absolutely level although the site is set into the hillside. Never got to see inside the service block as we use onboard facilities.

Had a nice meal and a pint in the on site Bistro.

Found the reception staff very pleasant and helpful.

Children's playground but no shop on site. All the big supermarkets in nearby Exeter or Exmouth.

Our first experience of using our campervan and it was a wonderful experience for a first time. Very friendly site, I rang very last minute and asked if we could travel down that day, the girl on the phone was so helpful and friendly even telling me the weather for that day locally. We arrived using the site directions and although it is a bit off the beaten track, we found it easily. A quiet homely site that has the most helpful and friendly staff team.

We were placed in the bottom field where we had a few caravans for neighbours. Plenty of room to park the van and pitch the awning and close to the brilliant newly refurbished shower block which was cleaned daily and in excellent condition. Hot water and heated! Next door was a laundry room with washing machines and tumble dryers which were coin operated, also several irons and ironing boards also coin operated. A small freezer for freezing your cooler blocks and a few books and magazines at hand to wait for the washing to be done. This room was also heated. Just outside was a lovely well kept washing up area and around the corner a sluice area.

We had to get into the van to travel anywhere but we were close to Exmouth and other beach areas, this was a small price to pay to have the peace and quiet we wanted from our break. There is a lovely wooden play area for Children in the bottom field and a restaurant on site and also a small shop. We had a lovely weekend and the staff need a pat on the back for their unique and very professional service. We will see you again in 2014.
