We had a seasonal pitch at this caravan site two years ago, but had to remove our caravan at the end of the season due to ill health. However, whilst we were there, we were very happy with all the facilities the site had to offer - the toilet/shower block was immaculately cleaned daily, the lawns/grounds beautifully kept, and the owner couldn't have been more helpful.

A few weeks ago we returned to see the owner and look over the site again, and we found that the already excellent facilities have been upgraded even more, the addition of the lovely laundry room is a real bonus, and the whole site is first-class.

The site is quiet and well situated for exploring the beautiful South Hams.

Island lodge is a very well maintained relaxing site close to kingsbridge. There is a shower and toilet block which is kept clean and fresh. On the end of the block is a washing up and laundry room. There is even a fridge freezer for guests to use.

There is a very good play area for the kids with climbing frame slide etc. There is a small shop on the site where you can get milk bread bacon etc. If there is something you need but it is not available Kay will do her utmost to get it or find where you can.

Seasonal produce is available Strawberry's etc.

We bring our dog with us and she gets plenty of walks with little traffic to worry about.

Kay is friendly and welcoming and makes you feel at home, this is our second season at island lodge and we will be having many more.

We have just arrived home after a brilliant Holiday at Island Lodge. This small site is very well kept and the facilities are immaculate.

On arrival, we were given lots of local information and had a choice of a hardstanding or grass pitch. We preferred the grass pitch.

The owner was very friendly, helpful and welcoming. We felt very comfortable and relaxed here. A hose broke in our caravan and the owner supplied us with one of her own.

The site is very well situated for exploring this beautiful area and we enjoyed some lovely cliff walks. We like to have a walk after our evening dinner and there is a couple of lanes just up the road where we walked each evening. The verges of these lanes were very pretty with wild flowers growing out of the banks. One lane led down to Kingsbridge and had lovely views but it was all up hill on the way back.

We are quite keen birdwatchers and on site there were numerous birds including Woodpeckers and Nuthatch.

During the first 24hrs of our first visit to Island Lodge in May last year we fell in love with this peaceful place, and its friendly helpful owner, and now have a seasonal pitch here that we use often. The site is beautifully maintained - both pitches, and facilities. The shower block has recently been improved and extended; the disabled shower room is first class. There's plenty to do and see in the surrounding area from uncrowded beaches; Dartmoor National Park; lots of good eating places; and small but interesting market towns including Kingsbridge just over a mile away. Dogs are made welcome on site and in the area. There are plenty of good walks close by, and a lane just off the site that is perfect to excercise your dog. Many pubs in the area are dog-friendly so eating out with our pet is no problem - she was even made welcome at the local church today as it was much too hot to leave her in the car! We don't have children so have not given a 'star rating' for child friendliness - however, the fact that there are baby-changing facilities and that I've seen some happy looking children while staying lead me to believe that they are made as welcome as we and our dog are!

We have used this site on many occasions and always found the owner very helpful and full of local information. If she does not know then she knows a man who does! The information provided by the site prior to arrival clearly states that credit cards or debit cards are not accepted and that cash payment for any balance due is required on arrival. I do not see a problem with this. The site does allow dogs and it is the owners responsibility to ensure they are under control and kept on a lead. Whilst there is no actual dog exercise area on site, there are plenty of dog walks just outside the site. There is dog waste facilities on site. No dogs should ever be left in the outfit or awning unattended. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs, beaches and attractions in the area so they do not need to be left.

The site is beautifully maintained and the facilities ( toilet, showers, laundry etc;) at the site care first class which have over the years continued to be improved. The site is now rated as a 4 pennant site by the aa. There is a very useful small shop on site for those things you forget to pack or need quickly on site.

There are glass bottle recycling facilities and you pay a nominal amount for a waste bags.

Reviewer: Colouredcob 3 reviews from this member

This site was our first place to visit with our caravan and 2 dogs, the owner seems a little prickly and abrupt but I am guessing this is just her way, having spoken to a couple of others who we're camping they felt she was rude and they would not stay again. We were given lots of brochures regarding the surrounding area and things to do when we checked in.

There is wifi advertised for the site but we never used this as our mobile phone provides us with internet coverage.

The site is very nice indeed, very clean, showers are lovely with plenty of hot water. There is only one washing machine which is token operated for 3, considering the site was not that busy, I had to wait a couple of hours to use it. Imagine that this would be a pain once the site becomes busy.

There is an odd set up regarding the rubbish, there are NO bins and you need to purchase a 'green' bin bag for 1. 50. We decided against this and took our rubbish to the town and placed it in the rubbish bin there.

Our stay was peaceful and enjoyable. Sadly we were not permitted by the owner to leave the dogs at all, we have crates which they sleep in and they are very well behaved so this made meals out in the evening a problem. Because of this I would not wish to take the dogs again and so may choose a different site.

No card facilities available so cash needed to be paid on arrival, this caught us out and we had to go and find a cash point, which after a 6 hour drive was the last thing we wanted to do.

There was a small play area which seemed popular with the small children that turned up the day we were leaving.

Hook up was good, everything worked fine, plenty of water taps available,

Considering all this I would recommend this site.
