This was our fifth visit to the site and so it is clear that we like this site. The toilets are really nice and clean and the whole site is kept clean and tidy. Located next to the canal bank it is a good spot for walkers that prefer the flat, (as we do!)

Along the bank to the village and you find the Globe Hotel with good food. The site staff are very welcoming and are ready with help and advice on all matters.

This is the second time we've stayed here so I think that's recommendation enough, affiliated to the CC its a small hardstanding only site that is situated 5 mins drive from M5 south. This recent stay was for just 1 night on our way to Cornwall, and talking to other people a lot use it as a journey break point BUT our first visit was in March when we stayed for 4 nights, the reason being is that the site has its own doorway to the Grand Western Canal towpath where we spent some lovely sunny days walking the towpath, all 8 miles to Tiverton, it forms part of the cycle network. 2 pubs are also accessible direct from the towpath about 10 mins walk & they both allowed dogs. Facilities are spotless, no free wifi but costs 6 for 48 hours, 3G coverage is sporadic.

Have visited this site on a couple of previous occasions and will be returning again this year. The site is always in immaculate condition. The welcome is friendly and efficient.

Because we have always stayed for several days our pitch has always been convenient and easy to access.

Whilst there is some road noise it is not obtrusive, try living next to a railway line.

It is a brilliant site and so convenient both as a stopover and for touring in the area.

Reviewer: Elddis Xplorer 5 reviews from this member

Was keen to try out this site as a convenient stop-off point travelling to North Devon/Cornwall. Unfortunately we found the site did not live up to our expectations.

Starting with the positives, the site is very easy to access from the A361 North Devon Link Road and the M5 Junction 27. The wardens were welcoming and helpful, and as the site is affiliated to the Caravan Club, it is as spick and span as you would expect.

So why the sad face? Well, as others have commented, as we were using the site for a one night stopover, we were offered a pitch at the furthest end of the site which has all the charm of a motorway service station and is just as noisy with traffic shooting past on the adjacent A361. On a sweltering hot day, there was no shade and little grass to speak of adjacent to our pitch, to sit and relax.

In an attempt to cool down, we tried the showers. Why oh why do sites have these fixed temperature showers with no controls? On a bitter autumn morning, the hot shower would be a joy, alas on a scorching Sunday in July it just provoked irritation. Can't we caravanners be trusted to regulate the temperature for ourselves?

Which leads to another issue. Why no toilets or showers in our distant field? Ah. But there was a thoughtful vegetable preparation area, which surely would be put to much better use as the above. What is the Caravan Club obsession with vegetable preparation areas? Do members request them? Do modern caravanners not have the means to wash vegetables in their own vans should they get the urge? Without being indelicate, I'm sure we're not alone in not wanting to set up the full toilet facilities in the van for a less than 24 hour stay. Alas, the nearest block was a robust stroll near the site entrance two fields away.

Off site, the neighbouring village of Sampford Peverell is a short stroll along the pleasant canal which borders the site on the other side (alas you can't see it behind the high hedges but there is an entrance from the site. ). We had a pleasant enough meal at The Globe pub, and found the older part of the village to be charming, with lovely views.

For those staying for longer, better pitches are available, so do not be wholly put-off as the site is convenient for Exmoor and the towns of mid-Devon. But would we return? Probably not.

A really great friendly site. Only small but well laid out hard stand pitches. The toilet and shower block was exceptionally clean and the staff most welcoming. There is a walk along the canal at the rear of the property which will take you into Sampford Peverall. A small town with two pubs and a general store. That sells everything. Would certainly recommend and stay again. Some previous reviews have mentioned the noise factor, however we did not encounter any problems in relation to this.

Great stopover for us on way down from Scotland to Plymouth to catch ferry to Santander. Only an hour and a quarter to Plymouth next day and just off main motorway. Friendly greeting from wardens and in suitable one night pitch next to reception. Had a lovely walk along part of the canal in the morning. No one mentioned ordering a newspaper the night before, but we were able to buy bread and milk at reception next day. We didn't have children but we would have to point out that if we had then would advise extreme caution as canal looked deep and unsafe once outside the gate. Toilet and shower facilities excellent. We look to returning perhaps for longer next time.
