What a great site this is,

We've been here twice now and will return for a third.

It's really quiet and peaceful, the staff are incredibly friendly and helpful too, on one occasion we were approached by a member of staff who asked if there was anything we'd like help with, after a brief chat I suggested that the shower curtains were a bit too close as there wasn't much room to get dried, much to my surprise the next day I went for a shower the curtain had been moved back!

We stayed on the part across the road from the main site and has the golf course attached, although it was a little bland compared to the main area it was still very nice, pitches are of astro turf, level and big enough for a car, caravan and awning.

There's a little cafe there that does coffee, tea and cold snacks and is reasonably priced.

The walk to the donkey site is pleasant and walking around it is nice, you can often hear the comical donkey brays from the site which my 8 year old loved!

The surrounding area is lovely with plenty to see and do, the beaches are nice and I would recommend a trip to Beer.

All in all this is a great site (if slightly pricey) and for us well worth the long drive from Scotland to visit.

We were greeted by friendly staff at reception, (we stayed two nights in our campervan on Monday and again on the Thursday on our way back) staff will show you to your pitch. We were tucked away on pitch 20 Monday and 19 on Thursday large astro turf pitch there are also grass pitches with benches. it is flat and has plenty of space between in camper.

Amenities very clean and tidy, only 3 showers in the block though so some days you do have to wait or go into the main site and use those. We found it easier to shower in the evening. Washing up facilities were good plenty of hot waterms but it does get hot in there if every one washing up at same time.

There is a dog walk to the Donkey sanctuary well worth a visit and you can walk for miles.

There is a shuttle bus to sidmouth if needed. And a cafe on site that do fantastic flat white coffees and great pasties, also if you didn't want to cook in the morning a full English breakfast can got there, but can get busy especially at peak times.

There is a bit of road noise but we soon got used to it. And you can here donkeys eeaww day and into the night but surprisingly relaxing. There is a play area for children and a 9 hole golf course on site.

Overall a fantastic site and we will be visiting again and getting friends an family to visit to.

Modern facilities

Very quiet and peaceful

Well laid out

Well organised

We stayed on the astro turf pitches in beech grove - which are a great idea - especially considering the amount of rain they'd had in the week before we arrived.

Family rooms - although you have to pay - it's not much.

The friendly greeting and helpful, friendly staff, especially as we hadn't booked the astro turf pitches - but was offered one by the very friendly grounds keeper.

The play parks - there are two

The shop - well stocked and is a coffee shop also - could do with being open a wee bit later though.

The comfy TV room - comfortably decorated - rather than a hodge podge as you can sometimes find - proper thought had gone into it.

Met some lovely campers there also.

This campsite won aa campsite of the year 2015 after we booked it, it is a well run, family site. If you like quite organised sites rather than those that are a bit more laid back - then this is for you

Our pitch was in Maple Grove and lovely it was too! Fully serviced pitch on h/s surrounded by grass and hedges in between. When we arrived the owners were worried that we would get stuck in the mud driving onto the pitch, so came with us bringing large mats just in case, but all was fine.

The site has plenty of trees and birdlife and makes for a relaxing break. We have an elderly dog so did not venture too far, but did wander over to see the donkeys!

The facilities are good and you can order papers and bread at the site shop.

We really enjoyed our 2 night stay.

Good clean site but quite expensive out of season. Some sites in the area with fully serviced pitches are nearly half the price!

Low season used to start Sept 1st, now the 21st!

Friendly helpful staff always available if needed.

Toilet and shower block very clean and tidy.

The site wifi at 2 a day is very poor even outside the caravan, as slow as the old dial up speed sometimes couldn't access at all.

Hedge trimming and grass cutting went on until 5 o'clock which was annoying if people wanted to sit outside to relax.

Overall a good site with just a few niggles.

Management response: Thank you for your review, we are very pleased that you've taken the time to provide us with some constructive feedback,

When installing the Wi-Fi we knew it would possibly be a problem at Oakdown before installation, unlike some of our competitors we have many trees that provide fantastic shelter and screening, this does cause a few issues with coverage and is something we are working hard to improve.

Again due to the vast amount of hedge screening we are forced to tidy the hedges during the dry periods as we have proved that when pruning in the winter months it churns up the grass which struggles to repair in time for the spring.

Our first drop down in the low season has always changed around the 31st Aug/1st Sept and has done again this year, if you choose to stay with us from the 21st September you'll find us very competitive, we hope to welcome you again soon and delighted to announce that we've just been awarded the AA Best Campsite for Great Britain 2015.

The Franks Family.

Another enjoyable visit to Oakdown and I endorse all the positive comments below. This time we asked for a pitch away from the road as we have previously found the noise from this busy A road intrusive. We were put in Sycamore on a serviced pitch which was perfect and much more peaceful.

The Sidmouth Hopper now stops at Oakdown which is good although we didn't use it. It is free but has limited seats as it is a minibus and being free, is in demand. We were able to easily park our motorhome in the Manor Road car park for a pound an hour which I thought was very reasonable.

Sidmouth, lovely as ever, Budleigh Salterton, delightful and you can easily park a motorhome right next to the beach in the Lime Kiln car park.

Shame we had to come home! We will definitely be back. Again!
