Reviewer: Pamax 2 reviews from this member

This site is grossly overpriced and really not worthy of the AA 5 Pennant award.

The entrance is very tight with little room to manoeuvre when towing a caravan and for being placed in the first field.

The facilities are really not fit for purpose, although they might photograph well, the shower/ wet rooms are very small and cheaply finished with no filler around the windows.

The fully serviced pitch did have electric hook up and waste water drain but no fresh water tap.

When we visited, there were constant queues for the toilets and showers.

Several times people were locked in the toilet/ shower/ wet room as the fittings are not really up to the job.

The only positive, was the shop and the polite young ladies who worked there.

The only recycling facility available on site is for glass, you also have to pay £1. 00 for a green bag for your refuse every time you need one.

One day, the owner tried to place a motorhome between our outfit and the caravan next door leaving approx. 1 metre clearance, until he was informed about minimum clearance/s required between outfits.

We definitely WILL NOT be staying here again.

The surrounding area though is definitely worth a visit with plenty to see and do.

An over rated caravan park next to a very busy main road, small cramped pitches, with a very tight access into and leaving the site, facilities are just about basic, a charge of £1 for a rubbish bag is a scandal, wouldn't go there again if it was free of charge. If you do visit this site we were not warned about the extra charges for certain things, and the pitches next to the busy road make sleeping impossible.

We stayed at this fabulous site for 5 nights - arriving at the start of the glorious sunny weather. I would highly recommend this site if you want peace and quiet. Its lovely with fantastic views. Its a small site but also very spacious. We have a pretty big tent with a side extension and we also took a large gazebo and we had plenty of room. There are plenty of electric hook up points and the site is very flat and very well looked after. Wherever you are at the site, both the amenity blocks, water etc are all so close by ! No having to walk miles to take a shower. On that point, the two shower blocks were great. There is a new block which in the ladies had 3 individual shower rooms, with a toilet and sink in each. I was delighted that there was no push button shower that trickled out but a lovely powerful shower that you turned on and off (very rare nowadays). The old shower block was just as good with the powerful showers. There were two large family rooms as well, which I sometimes used to myself when there was nobody else there! There are also very good disabled facilities. There is are washing and drying facilities and use of a large fridge and freezer.

The little shop had fresh bread/rolls etc delivered every day and plenty of fresh produce all at very reasonable prices. I would highly recommend this site and we fully intend using it again.

It's in a very convenient location, not far from lots of different beautiful places to visit, not to mention a Tesco and Morrisons just over a mile away !

Friendly welcome & great price for full service pitch.

Good sized pitch & site is very clean & tidy.

Showers were great, had a door rather than curtain. Plenty of free hot water & good pressure with moveable rather than fixed shower head made washing kids easier. Toilets & showers always clean & there are family wash rooms with shower & toilet together.

Shop stocks most things you may have forgotten (sleeping bags, tent pegs etc) as well as great local produce & essentials.

Owners friendly & helpful throughout our stay.

Charge for rubbish disposal £1 for a large bag (we only needed 2 bags for a week & there were 5 of us) all rubbish then gets recycled.

We recently spent two weeks at this site (may half term into June) with our three young children. From when we arrived until we left the owners made us very welcome and both were very informative and approachable at all times. They have opened a shop on site with very good local produce. My wife as given a tour of the soon to be opened new toilet block, the existing ones are already great with temperature control of showers to keep the kids happy and the new ones look better!. Our children enjoyed the playarea and games room, the site was safe for them to use their bikes etc.

There are plenty of good beaches nearby, some very good pubs in Kingsbridge and Salcombe and a few take away's that deliver to the site.

This is a site to use if you like the personal touch and we shall return again soon

This was a return to this site for us, after a few years of not being able to use our van. We were pleasantly surprised that James the owner remembered us and our children, even though our eldest two were not with us this time, caravanning doesn’t seem to be cool for teenagers!

The site still has a lovely family feel to it, and we were pleased to see changes had been made to the facilities since our last stay. What James calls the new block has a couple of family wash-rooms, this was brilliant, lots of space for showering with our youngest who has special needs.

We spent an afternoon at Coombe Water fishery which is just down the road from the site, my son loved it and most probably had the biggest catch of the day, according to him and my partner went shopping into Kingsbridge. You don’t need to travel far from the site, we always found something to do, with the good weather we spent a lot of time on Bantham beach as well, but on a wet day that we had we made the most of the local pool, and then we saw a film at the quaint cinema.

Overall I would say anyone would enjoy a stay at this site, level pitches, clean toilets, friendly owner and a good location – if you are a ‘caravanner’ try and book one of their ‘super pitches’.
