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’.
This was a last minute descision as the weather forecast was good, we decided to make the most of it. We have always loved the South Devon area and didn't want to travel too far from our home, so Kingsbridge/Salcombe seemed ideal.
Booking was easy and it was great to have an all in price of £19 per night for the family and we got a hookup, with no extras to pay for the awning and pup tent we used, and we were surprised no coin meters on the showers.
We were all pleased with our choice of Parkland, the site appeared to be clean and tidy, and the owner was very welcoming. We were even offered a couple a different pitches, I guess they weren't that busy as schools had only just finished. We chose a grass pitch instead of the hard standing, we had plenty of space.
I loved the spacious wash room after a day on Bantham beach, the free showers were great for getting all the sand off the children.
The children took themselves off to the small playroom, it was basic, but it had been freshly painted, it only had a ping pong table and a football table, but the kids were happy which suited us, we just sat and enjoyed the view with a drink!
I did say to James, the owner when we left that we we thought there would be more in the games room, he explained that with all the previous rain there had been a leak that had ruined the pool table and he was waiting on a new one to be delivered by the end of the week.
The area is great for beaches which we spent most of our time on as the weather was so good. Tesco is just 5 mins away so just stopped there for supplies when we needed, the site had a freezer so we could freeze our ice packs to take each day with our picnics.
We did treat ourselves to fish & chips in salcombe one evening and watched all the boats.
During our stay it was the local fair and we were lucky enough to see the fireworks, they were really good.
I guess our other comment would be to follow up on the previous review about the rubbish, I think they must of misunderstood the system. Yes, it is different from other campsites, but it is nice for there not to be smelly rubbish areas - you can leave your rubbish on site if you are happy to pay a surcharge of £1 - we did use this system as we were assured that everything is recycled.
