Stayed here a few years ago and had a pitch next to canal hedge and found road noise to be quite loud, but with this visit we were put on pitch 30 ( as we were told it was just for 1 night ). This was the worst pitch being right next to the busy road and fully shaded ( our neighbours were also 1 night so it seems you get the worse pitches). We were woken several times through the night by non stop traffic noise ( very large lorries) and what also seemed like a gun going off which started many dogs barking. If you like cycling as we do ( why we used site) you will love the canal path, we cycled into Tiverton (7 miles) saw 2 kingfishers. Showers need pressing every 30 secs, old but clean. Wouldn't use this site again as pet hate is road noise and this has been the loudest in 10yrs motorhoming.

Currently staying here,

Being fairly new to caravanning I wanted somewhere with easy access. Still learning to park!

This site is easy to find and easy to manoeuvre your outfit on to a pitch.

The new owners are extremely friendly and helpful, they seem to be working non stop, making sure the amenities are kept spotlessly clean and tidy and customer's needs are seen to.

Some people have mentioned that you can hear the hum of the motorway in the distance, yes that's true but I can honestly say it didn't interfere with my sleep at all.

The site is ideally placed to visit, Tiverton, Torbay and the surrounding areas, it's right next to the Great western canal and fishing permits are available. I'm looking forward to coming back here later in the season, it would be an ideal site to keep open all year round, I would definitely use it.

Keep up the good work.

The facilities all worked but there is only one shower block for the whole site and only three showers within the block. For a site with 62 pitches, I thought this was simply not enough. The kids play area was good but also quite small for the size of the site. The noise from the A361 can be intrusive but its' proximity makes it easy to get around.

Great greeting from friendly staff and very helpful. Fantastic facilities which are kept spotless and the fully serviced pitches are great. There us a little traffic noise due to the proximity of the motorway but nothing to worry about. The access to the canal is by a gate from the site and is great if you have a dog. There is a dog friendly pub just off the toe path but remember to take your torch

This is the fourth time we have stayed at this site. As always the checking in process was simple and friendly. We were allocated a pitch which was helpful. The pitch was large enough for caravan, and awning plus water containers all to fit on the hard standing. The car fitted across the front of the pitch.

The toilet facilities are excellent. Clean and tidy at all times. Just a pity about the childish notices in the toilets.

We did visit any of the local attractions as we were only using the site as a stop over on the way further west.

Having read in the C&CC mag that this site under went a facelift in 2014 and had a million pounds spent on it, myself & my husband & small dog decided to go this August 2015 to try it out: The site has easy access and just off the M5 motor way is easy to find. The site is small & quite, which we like. The wardens are very pleasant & helpful. We booked a fully serviced site, which was on a hard-standing raised part of the site, as soon as you enter, close to the toilet block & reception. Getting on to out pitch was a bit tight for our car and 4brth caravan, but my husband is experienced at this so managed it without the help of the tractor, which was offered to us by the warden. However we couldn't put up our awning because the ground was too hard even for our steel pegs, so for 8 day's we didn't have our privacy or freedom of our awning. Looking around the site all the pitches are hard standing and a few campers were the same as us 'No awning'. There isn't a dog walking area on site but the canal is just outside the campsite for you to use to walk your dog. There were no doggy poo bins on site either, so you had to collect it up and walk out the gate onto the towpath to use the bin provided there! Toilet bloke, although small, was immaculate & cleaned daily. On site shop had a small selection of supplies & not what the web-site described as 'well stocked shop'. There are a lot of mature trees on the site, so expect to be underneath one of them. Our stay was pleasant enough but I wouldn't go back for the fact that we couldn't put up our awning.
