Reviewer: Sueandbilly 3 reviews from this member

Came back again this year for 2 weeks, beautiful weather, fabulous site, spotlessly clean toilets and shower blocks, good food in 'Poppy's' Staff are most helpful especially Sandy.

Great club house, 'The Hay Loft', evening entertainment is brilliant, especially the two singers/comedians, Allen Roberts and Andy Oakley, when Andy holds court, there is not a dry eye in the house, be warned take a hanky with you to mop up the tears of laughter.

We will definitely return again next year.

My only gripes are, the toast for breakfast in 'Poppy's' needs to be toasted, as at the moment it comes on the plate looking very pale.

The toilet waste is just a tiled hole in the ground, so you need to bend yourself in double to get the cassette nozzle close enough to the hole, other wise your feet and legs get splashed with the contents of your cassette, as many of the caravanners on site are of senior years they may not be as flexible as the younger ones.

The fully serviced pitches have a toilet bowl at their disposal for cassette waste so why is this not the case elsewhere?

Finally why do we have to pay an extra premium to hold your chosen pitch on top of the pitch fee plus a booking fee as well, smacks of greed I feel.

We have visited this campsite several times and always received the same friendly welcome. The staff are very helpful and will go out of their way to make your stay a happy one.

The pitches are cleverly arranged into four areas which are terraced and therefore lends itself to some lovely views over the countryside.

The utility blocks have recently been refurbished with walk in type showers with plenty of hot water. These facilities are always kept spotlessly clean.

There is a small shop and a cafe which serves reasonably priced tasty meals to eat In or take-away. There is also a bar with entertainment every night, ranging from bingo, karaoke and some very good singers and comedians. Being an adult only site means you have the best of both worlds. Relaxing peaceful days and wonderful entertainment at the bar in the evening.

Finally it's very easy to get to without having to drive through narrow lanes and it's also close to many interesting places to visit such as Paignton, Torquay, Brixhm, Totnes and much more.

I would not hesitate to recommend this site to anyone visiting the south west.

We have just spent 3 nights here on our way back from Cornwall. The site is easy to access, staff are friendly. The site itself is tired, the pitches are cinder type surface which walks into your outfit. The pitches are reasonable size but lined up and facing into the person opposites window. The pitches are steep terraces so not a very attractive outlook. We had a serviced pitch which had a water tap and drain on, however next to our pitch was a toilet surrounded by a wooden fence which was the chemical toilet emptying not the prettiest of scenes! The back of our pitch was a motorway crash barrier! That ran the full length of the pitches. Toilet block was immaculate very spacious cubicles and spotlessly clean. Poppys restaurant was brilliant the food was 5 star, very well priced and delicious good menu and wine. The club/pub is dated has a horrid black ceiling with millions of white fairy lights in it and Xmas lights and holly on the bar in June???? The pub is not dog friendly entertainment takes priority over everything else.

Just returned after another lovely week here. The staff are so friendly and kind, always chat and will go out of their way to help if needed. The facilities are probably the best we have had to use, so clean. The site has very easy access and is a good base for touring south Devon. The clubhouse was open every evening with a variety of entertainment. There is a small shop that sells essentials and a small restaurant, we did have breakfast one morning, was really good. There is also a mobile chip van on a Tuesday, they were nice too. Will definitely return.

Large friendly site, first time staying on an adults only site. We just needed a stop over for one night, here are our thoughts.

Good points:

- very clean facilities

- reception very helpful and informative

- great service and a friendly chat with the cafe staff

- people friendly and chatty, even to us one night stoppers

- good access to nearby tourist areas

Not so good:

- price, expensive at £27 for one night

- unless the on site bar is for you its a drive in a car for anything else

- the main road noise never stops

- some site rules are a little weird, eg no rotary washing lines (even though the wardens clearly had them), and strictly no underwear to be displayed.

All in all it did us a turn, but prob not somewhere we would choose to visit again - only because we'd prefer the option to cycle/walk from - but for a one night stop was just fine for us.

Stayed here for a week, well informed welcome when we arrived, very easy to get to; no small village roads. The site is sloping and had good, level pitches on terraced sections. At night there is little lighting of the roads and stairs, so torches are a good idea. There is a small carpark near reception and the main toilet block and I saw many older people driving rather than walking. There is a café/restaurant that serves breakfast and meals. There's a pub which has nightly entertainment such as karaoke and singers come along. The last night we had bingo and a raffle. The prizes were on the table and you could pick whatever one you wanted. We bought our tickets the night before, we noticed that all the new people who bought tickets on the night, had their numbers come up, so buy your tickets on the night of the raffle! Also saw a worker win a prize, that shouldn't be allowed.

There are 3 toilet blocks, on the left on the hill was a small shower and toilet block, the main big one next to reception had several toilets, showers and laundry and another toilet block on the lower right had just two toilets each. The cleaning team do a good job of keeping everything clean, they are always in and out which is a bit uncomfortable sometimes. Some people mention traffic noise, but we really didn't have a problem with it, all we heard was someone shooting occasionally.

The park has a good dog policy; no aggressive breeds, and most importantly; no children! Absolutely brilliant, so peaceful.

While here we went to Babbacombe Minature Village, Bygones Museum, and in Torquay; Amusements and mini golf, Living Coasts 'zoo' where you can walk in the penguin and seabird enclosure. In Paignton we also did mini golf, amusements on the pier and the Zoo. The Zoo was very busy and has a lot of walking, if you're game, get there early and avoid the mums and prams brigade and you also may be able to park close to the entrance. Cockington thatched village is also worth a look. We also drove to Brixham, took the 5 minute ferry across to Dartmouth and then onto Totnes and finally Haytor Rocks in Dartmoor. Our sat nav actually took us from Haytor and back to Widdicombe farm via all farm lanes, we didn't go onto a main road once.
