My husband and I spent 8 nights here during a visit to Devon. The staff were so helpful when we booked as we kept changing our minds about what dates and pitch we wanted and they were able to shuffle things around for us to give us exactly what we wanted. We ended up with an amazing pitch right at the top of the site with stunning views over the countryside. The main toilet block was spotlessly clean with lots of showers, loos and wash stations. There where also smaller toilet blocks on the site, and while smaller and not as posh as the main one they are still perfectly acceptable. The Hayloft Bar was also fine for a few evening drinks and provided some form of entertainment every night including live singer, karaoke, comedy act and bingo (damn you number 54, I could have been £90 richer)!

The traffic noise from the dual carriage way by pass can be heard at night depending on wind direction - take ear plugs if you think tis will bother you like we did.

Poppies restaurant is a separate business but I thought I'd give it a mention anyway. We had Sunday dinner there which was lovely and two evening meals. On our last night we decided to eat there again but our meals took 55 minutes to arrive. We had apologies from the waiter but to us 9pm to start our meal was a bit late. The restaurant is only small and was not even half full so there didn't seem to be a reasonable explanation for this. However I can't fault the food.

This site will be one that I will be returning to, Staff are friendly and nothing to much trouble. Toilet and shower blocks are immaculate hot water and seats to sit on. Site is kept in tip top condition. Small shop with just about all you need, a bar which depending on time of the season has entertainment and a café /restaurant which we didn't get the opportunity to use but was busy when we passed by it. Pitches were a decent size and we were not on top of each other. If I had any negatives it would be paying for Wi-Fi and the go-cart track across the road which interrupts the quite peaceful site. All in a great site at a great price.

Just returned from a 5 day stay. We were on 'Poppy 9' pitch.

Lovely site, brilliant welcome from reception staff. The downside for me, and it is nothing to do with site staff, is the way some other visitors left the toilets, if they do it in their own homes then they have a serious problem! I felt sorry for the cleaning staff having to go in there. Other than that lovely.

Lovely camp, toilet and showers kept very clean, staff very sociable and friendly just outside Torquay. The only thing we were disappointed with was the views going off the internet pictures thought all the plots had a lovely view and when booked asked for a pitch with a view but was very disappointed has we were allocated a pitch right at the bottom of the camp without a view. Would visit this camp again but would want to book a pitch with the view.

Arrived at this campsite in the pouring rain! They normally only allow bookings of three nights or more, but made an exception for us as we phoned ahead. Staff very friendly, went out of their way to help, but somewhat eccentric! Reception, shop and restaurant decor somewhat unusual, but that added character. Fully stocked shop, restaurant and bar. Entertainment was provided at the bar, but we didn't make use of that because of the weather. Takeaway facility from restaurant, as well as local takeaway services which deliver to the site. Toilets, showers and other facilities excellent and well kept. Showers vary in temperature, however, depending on whether someone is using the wash basins or not! Overall a good site and we would stay again, if ever back in the area.

Reviewer: Moe58 1 review from this member

Just spent a relaxing week here, nice quiet site but not far away from Torquay and other places. Good WiFi and a problem was sorted out within the hour by ClubWiFi, excellent service. Nice little clubhouse and a good singer (Mrs Winward). Pitches are all level but number 37 and the three either side get no sun after early morning due to the high bushes. The shop is a tad small and remember to 'book' your daily paper for the next day. Toilet block was good and very clean all the time. Good sized dog field which with a bit of fencing and chicken wire could be made very secure for dogs to be off the leash, however go out of the main gate and immediately after the stopover area on the left there is a gate onto the old road which is good for dogs. A good site with good facilities, helpful staff and lots to do in the area.
