Stumbled upon Dornafield by mistake, after the site that we had our hearts set on staying at was fully booked. I am SO glad that they are full, as we would never have discovered this gem of a site.

They have set the bar so high, that I'm worried we'll always compare future sites to Dornafield! We stayed in Blackrock Copse, worth the extra pennies in every way. It was peaceful, well laid out and a perfect place to relax and unwind.

The toilet's and showers were always spotless, and never busy even though the site seemed to be very full.

It's the perfect base for exploring beautiful South Devon and all it has to offer. Newton Abbot is bigger than you'd expect and has plenty of supermarkets to choose from!

We will most definitely be back. Can't wait!

Wow! What an impressive site. Sat here with a cold bear enjoying the peace and tranquillity of this little oasis (well, 34+ acres) in glorious Devon.

Last minute decision to get away for the weekend and decided to take the plunge and definitely not disappointed. Whilst the site caters mainly for touring caravans and motorhomes, they provide 16 excellent tent pitches which are now, fully serviced - whilst you are encouraged to recycle, you even have your own bin which, when full, you simply display the red disk attached to a chain and it is emptied for you! That has to be a first on any site we have been to. We had pitch 12 which faces due south along with 11, 13 and 14. 10 is a little small and right next to the path that leads to the shower block. 9, 8, 7 and 6 are very level as are 12, 13 and 14 but 5, 4, 3, 2 and 1 are gently sloping but face north and are adjacent to one of the sites roads (5mph though).

Well equipped shop with all the essentials and bread croissant freshly baked but must be pre-ordered the day before.

The check in and welcome were excellent and we had a choice of pitches. Excellent information provided in regards to local pubs ( two within 10 minutes and 20 minutes walking distance). Clearly dog friendly with not one but two lovely enclosed dog walking fields one, which is a little hilly, is huge with beautiful views. Friday and Monday see Simon and Linda whipping up fish n chips from a small catering caravan set in a little quarry behind the 'Lime Kiln' which we opted for, absolutely lovely - share a portion of chips, they're huge! No tartare sauce though which was a shame.

Shower block is amazing with push button showers that seem to go on for ages and tonnes of hot water. The WC's and showers are separate as are the basins so it's a shower in one block and then pop next door for a shave, no big deal and this does keep the showers less congested. The grounds are equally pristine with an amazing children's park that is more reminiscent of a theme park with loads of great activities including a fort.

Being very close to the English Riviera and Dartmouth make this a perfect base with Dartmoor 20 minutes drive, what more could you ask for. For us, one of the real attractions is how lovely and peaceful the site is you wouldn't think you were only 800 yards from the main road; couldn't hear a thing!

Thank you to all of a lovely stay - we will be back!

Dornafield is undoubtedly one of our favourite sites. The facilities are second to none, the staff so very friend, y and most helpful at all times. The pitches are all fully serviced and of a very generous size. Being very well placed for visiting the surrounding beaches, the pretty market town of Totnes and Newton Abbot, Torquay and also Dartmoor. The site also offers a take away facility from their quarry kitchen which offers superb chips, sausages, mushy peas but unfortunately re-constituted grey uniformed sized fish, which was a big disappointment when in this part of the country, fresh fish is readily availanle !

We visited the site this June for a short break, the site is set in a beautiful location within the grounds of a 14th century farmhouse. The staff are a hardworking, well organized crew but we still got that family feel when arriving and was well looked after during our stay. The pitches are well laid out with water, waste water facilities and electricity as standard. The toilet blocks are spotless with laundry and showers all very nicely modernized. We had Amber our King Charles Spaniel on holiday with us, she thoroughly enjoyed our strolls in the dog exercise area. There are playgrounds for family's with young kids and a games room for the teens. We visited Dartmouth, Torquay and Brixham town all within a short driving distance of Dornafield and also had a lovely meal one evening at the Two Mile Oak pub which is just up the road from the site, they pride themselves on a good choice of real ales which we felt obliged to sample. Overall an excellent site well worth a visit.

Narrow roads to get in and out of here, take care! Friendly people run this place, steep road to get up to the touring section (did see a tractor taking caravans up and down for the less confident). Every pitch doesn't have privacy between them, we had trees and a field behind ours. Serviced pitches, although the toilet could have had a better lid, little ants were all falling in! Pitch wasn't wide enough for car/awning/caravan, so we had to park our car at the front, no biggy. There was an enclosed dog walk. Strange toilet and shower block, the walls weren't all the way to the roof, so you could hear in the mens what was going on in the ladies and vice versa. There was a small shop on site. Tent field opposite with their own toilet block, very, very noisy! thank goodness the caravans are way away from here. Went to Torquay and Dartmoor. Huge and very busy ASDA nearby in nearby Newton Abbot.

Having just returned from this wonderful site on a pitch with full facilities, close to fab cleaning facilities & the best dog walk we have ever found. Almost didn't want to review cos it is soooo good. It is ideally situated to the coast & Dartmoor & all the walks that it offers. We visited four of the local pubs for meals, The Two Mile Oak, The Union, The Pig & Whistle & The Duke of Wellington & enjoyed meals at all four, with the D of W being exceptional. My only criticism was that we although we had TV hookup we couldn't get proper reception. Also as previously stated the lanes to the site are narrow & the locals drive far too fast making it rather risky to walk in the area.
