First do read the directions section the Sat Nav will create huge problems for larger units. The sites own directions are simple and fool proof.

Road noise has been mentioned several times, the A380 is on the top of the hill on the other side of the valley. Yes you could hear the traffic but it never kept us awake. If you want ultimate peace and quiet there are plenty of suitable sites out there.

We were at the top of Apple Blossom field which meant we never used the main facilities block. The smaller one near us presented no problems. No lack of hot water, always clean. Only one male shower, two unisex are available, but I only waited once.

The reception staff I dealt with were friendly and helpful.

The pitches we were on are a double width hard standing with a single width grass area along side. A normal car with normal caravan and average awning with have a bit of room to spare. The terraced nature of the site means the pitches are mostly arranged in straight rows which can feel a little regimented.

We did not sample the entertainment or the restaurant.

The Nippy Chippy van cancelled when we were there, a sign on the entry road would have been nice as we did not go via reception to reach Apple Blossom field. We fancied fish and chips so drove down to Torquay town, can recommend the Blue Anchor chip shop, huge portions.

Loved visiting the Al La Ronde a unique hexagon shaped National Trust property set on a hill above Exmouth. Had cream tea on the lawn overlooking the river estuary.

The site was fine the staff very friendly and the facilities were as to be expected. We did however object most strongly to having to pay £5 for two friends to visit us on the site for one and a half hours, because they wanted to see our camper-van. I know that it is an adult only site and understand that this may be necessary as it is a working farm but it is a shame that our grandchildren couldn't visit us.

Easily accessed campsite off the ring road - which was the reason we chose it - beautiful location - stunning views from some of the higher pitches -pitches are tiered and unfortunately we were put in the lower tier which was exceptionally tricky to get down into, our tow-bar gouged a path down and it was really tricky to get back up the slope again when we left - but apart from that the facilities are lovely, the team who take care of the site are lovely and the toilets are so well kept - the hay-loft bar was nice for an evening drink and there was nightly entertainment -my only gripe was the late opening time of 8pm - there is a cafe on site which was marvellous - open for food all day - great breakfasts, dinners etc - we loved the walk down into Marldon village - 2 very good pubs there, found the bus service locally to be very poor - went into Brixham by bus and it took an hour and a half - buses so crowded and dogs were payable, unlike Cornwall and Dorset- all in all a lovely site, would return but on a different pitch

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
