Lovely secluded sight with very good clean facilities. I was a bit dubious about checking in as I had read that the owners were rude and they did not accept commercial vehicles. We have a VW T5 which was converted from new and as the website also says management reserve the right to refuse admission I was apprehensive as to whether we would be allowed to pitch up.

After being welcomed in a very friendly manner, even though we were a couple of hours early (we had set off at the crack of dawn to avoid traffic) we were told our pitch might not be free as checkout was not till eleven for current occupants, but if it was we could pitch our awning.

After finding the pitch empty we settled in and decided to go for a wander.

The surrounding area is lovely national trust owned woodland with fantastic cycle routes and walks. There were even designated cycle paths to take you into Plymouth centre. The pool is a bit dated and chilly but my daughter didn't seem to mind and she enjoyed the play area although this is quite near the site entrance. The shop does not stock perishables or alcohol as there is a large supermarket across the main road. Didn't use the bar but we did buy a couple of bags of chips and these were good. The other campers were extremely friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

This is a great site and I would recommend it to all.

We found this site very easily it is well signposted off the roundabout. It has everything that is important yo us. Convenient for Park & Ride, picturesque walks even a Steam Railway close by(Sundays only) and good cycling tracks. Saltram House is worth a visit only a 20 minute walk away. The food in the Takeaway and Restaurant was very good the Bar stocks a decent range of beers and is not expensive as some sites can be. Facilities were well kept and abundant more than enough for a fairly full site(not a fan of the push button showers) but they worked very well water was always hot enough and didn't have to wait too long for the cold water to clear (sometimes a shock in the morning. Would definitely book again next time we are in the area.

We used this place as an overnight stay prior to an early ferry departure the next day. When we arrived reception said best to go in our 'overnight area' Ok we thought although it was pretty much a shabby tarmac car park with a few hook ups. All OK so far, but a bit miffed to pay top rates for a less than desirable pitch, but France beckoned the next day so what the heck. As the night progressed and the car park filled with guests for a birthday party in the adjacent clubhouse the noise increased and we had to also listen to a local singing act until nearly midnight, just what you want when you are setting alarm clocks for 6am. Then it appears that the toilets are used by local taxi drivers at any hour. Not the best night we have had in Plymouth, won't be using the site again, a shame as it is a nice location.

We are fairly new to caravanning and this was the first site we used and this visit was our third, we just love it here. Shower facilities warm and clean and they now have a purpose built wet room and toilet for the disabled (my husband registered disabled), this facility was an added bonus. They always give us a pitch close to all facilities, ie water, waste water and elsen points and of course the shower blocks and new disabled wet room. It's hard to believe that this site is so close to Plymouth City centre, you almost feel you are in the heart of the country. Shops, restaurants and pubs very close by and bus stop outside of site if required. Tried the takeaway on site, it was very good and all food cooked to order, and the same staff prepares food for restaurant so guess that would be good too. All staff very friendly and helpful, will definitely return.

We stayed for 3 nights at peak of hot weather. Found site to be clean, well-kept and attractive. Staff were friendly and helpful. Was one of the quietest sites we've stayed on in the evenings - one noisy family, but pretty much calm after 11. We were on a pitch without electricity - this was a bonus, as these are on the large grass area which is around the site (aerial view on website), so you get more space (the caravans and campervans are pretty close together and there are no hedges). Good shade options for tents. Pool lovely in the sunny weather. Can hear the main road, but not intrusive unless you like absolute quiet. Signposting off the A38 is really good - look for the brown tourist signs when you see the big Sainsburys!

Stayed for 2 nights whilst visiting friends in Plymouth. Had difficulty finding the site as the sat nav directions (and the directions on the website) take you to a road that is closed. After several circuits of the horrible marsh mills roundabout (and some swearing!) we found the site which is located up a quite lane by the river Plym. We had a very warm welcome at the reception but no one to show us to our pitch which was a shame as we had booked a grass pitch which was not well defined. My major criticism of the site would be that it feels very crowded. The pitches are small. The facilities are clean but a bit dated, lovely hot shower. We didn't use the swimming pool or clubhouse. It is a twenty minute walk to the March mill park and ride which is a much better option than driving into town in a campervan! So the location is good, it's quiet and peaceful but the welcome could be better and the pitches are too close together. The location is so good we would stay again
