Reviewer: BCockbill 1 review from this member

Well another successful season at Island Lodge! We have visited many sites especially in Wales and you will not get a better cleaner site than Island Lodge. This caravan site is immaculate, the grounds are well kept and pretty, the owner is very accommodating and approachable. The toilets are cleaned daily, the showers have plenty of hot water and it accommodates able and disabled people. Dog friendly site which is a bonus as we have a dog, the owner is obviously a lover of pets as she is so lovely with our dog Teddy. Yes you do have to walk your dog down the lane which is a quiet road leading on to the main road to kingsbridge town but to be honest it does keep the site clean and safe as children do play on the site so I agree with this rule. A small shop is run from the main reception, this has all your basic needs and is of good quality. The site is in an excellent location as it is easy to access Salcombe, Dartmouth, Totnes etc. The site offers caravan storage for the winter which is wonderful, you pack up your caravan and the owner ensures your caravan is stored correctly and securely, what more could you ask for!? Can't wait until next year!

We booked to stay here for eight days at the end of September. I booked online but there was no facility to pay by credit card, so I had to do a credit transfer from my bank. I did get a free day for paying in full up front though. Still a bit odd in 2015

When we arrived on site, I was quite surprised to find the number of touring pitches was very limited. Most of the site was occupied by closely spaced permanent pitches but very few were occupied.

The touring spaces were a long way from the toilet block, which as other reviewers have said, were excellent and very clean - and for the first time on any campsite, no time limit on the shower. My wife was in heaven, she could at last wash her hair without the water going off every thirty seconds! There were a few of the toilets not in use though, but this was no hardship for us as there were very few other people there

The site advertises itself as dog friendly, but as far as we could see, this meant you could bring your dogs on site, but had to exercise them in the lanes off site, which involved a 20yd walk along a main road to get to the dog walking lane. Not the best for a site advertised as dog friendly.

The local town, Kingsbridge, is a nice little town with plenty of dog friendly pubs, and the site is ideally located for exploring the South Hams.

This is the first site I've been on where you had to pay to dispose of rubbish. Not a great hardship, but surely bins could be provided for waste?

We left early because the weather was too wet, and the rain turned the campsite into sticky, soggy clay (which took several days to clean off everything when we got home). I blame over cutting the grass not giving the grass time to recover. I shan't visit again.

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!
