Reviewer: Gingawarrior 55 reviews from this member

I just didn’t click with this site and in hindsight I wish I’d stayed somewhere else. Firstly one has to mention the elephant in the room that is the noise from the road, it is quite horrendous and starts early and finishes late.

Also talking loud noises, it was right at the start of the season and you expect some work to be going on, unfortunately I was placed on a pitch next to an area of constant tree cutting starting about 9am and continuing all day. Oh well, at least that drowned out the noise from the road.

I like to park my van and then rely on public transport or good old shank’s pony, this site isn’t great for that, the nearest bus being a good mile away and the local footpaths could be confused with the local tip as there was so much flytipping.

On the plus side the facilities were good, clean, kept warm and the shower cubicles were massive. Also everyone I met on site was very friendly.

If the site was located better I would be consider staying there again, but Torquay, Paignton and Brixham did not really do it for me with parts just being too run down to be classed at tourist destination, although Totnes is a real gem.

Me my wife and frank the dog stayed on the clover pitches in july. On arrival we had car trouble which the car dumped all of its oil and the staff were very understanding and helpful. Thanks to the AA too.

its a large site which is cleverly divided into little offshoots which run off the road which goes through the entire site. Its a very peaceful site with lovely views over the countryside (depending which part of the site youre on. ) torquay and Paignton are only a couple or so miles away with various supermarkets for supplies. There is a small shop on site which stocks most of the essentials. The very picturesque town of brixham is well worth a visit too.

The toilets/showers are quiete spacious and are kept to a very high standard of cleanliness. They do have a bar/clubhouse on site which only opens at 8pm every night which seemed to have a varied selection of entertainment on most nights. It also has a large dog walk that is regularly mowed so you can let your dogs off for some excersize too. We have already booked the same site and pitch for next year.

Forgot to mention out daughter and her boyfriend came too but stayed in a tent in the well presented camping field. A big thumbs up from them too.

a really pleasant stay, thank you.

Our first visit to this site I will put the good points first the large toilet block is second to none and nothing has been spared to make it clean and well laid out very impressed even the small one is clean and as a privacy cubicle. The staff were very friendly and helpful and last but not least the club house, its only small but we enjoyed our two evenings there first night a male singer he was good and second night bingo which we had not played for years and was fun. The things that we were a little disappointed with were the shop which opened odd hours but only really stocked the necessities but you could order papers for next day the small café/restaurant we did not use so cannot comment a fish and chip van comes one night again did not use, but I was uncomfortable with pitch sizes and felt we were all tucked in and could see into every ones windows. Overhall a good site for a couple days being an adult only but you do need a car or good legs for walk to bus stops

Had a lovely stay here. Staff very friendly and helpful. They put us next to the dog exercise area, we have two boarder collies, which was very helpful. Toilet and shower block were the best I have seen very modern and clean. They had entertainment every night at their pub, three nights in a week is bingo. We had sunday dinner in the Poppies restaurant, which was very good. Shop is well stocked. The only down side was the noisy traffic as it is by A330, rooster who my partner thinks started at three in the morning then kept going, sea gulls felt they had to join in and then other birds. So bring ear plugs, or drink lots at the pub the night before. It was very handy to get to places and we could walk to Compton castle National Trust. Nice size pitches too, in flat ground all very clean.

This is a really lovely site, it is on a hill side and laid out in terraces so it is hilly which gives a big bonus of good size pitches which are not invaded by people walking through them. The facilities are equal to any Caravan Club site we have been on and were spotless while we were there. One addition which would be very useful would be a drive over motor home waste point, other than that a nice site we would certainly return to.

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.
