We have just returned from another lovely stay at Pennymoor and actually stayed on longer than originally planned as the weather was so good. Although we are relatively new to camping, this is, in my opinion an excellent site.

As mentioned by others, the facilities are spotlessly clean and there are two toilet blocks open during busier periods. Both have washing up facilities, with the upper block having indoor washing up and the lower block having our door but sheltered washing up areas. The showers are not limited and are free.

We haven't visited for 2 years but the new warden is very helpful, as were all the staff in the reception. The couple who run the small on site shop are cheerful and friendly, especially with children and it is stocked with all the basic essentials you need along with some toys for children to buy at reasonable prices. There are laundry facilities if needed.

Lots of children gather near the playground and have a great time playing. We opted to be on the lower field which is more peaceful and there is plenty of space for children to play there. Fresh water was close by and on arrival when we spotted a dip in our pitch, the warden told us we could overlap the pitch as we were on an end pitch or even offered to relocate us. We were also told we didn't need to rush off on the day we were leaving as our pitch would be vacant after us.

Yes the Devonshire lanes are narrow but you do become accustomed to driving on them and other drivers are generally courteous. There is a small Co-op nearly at Modbury along with Tescos and Morrisons at nearby Kingsbridge. Mothercombe beach is one of our favourites (private beach open Sat, Sun and Weds) but the neighbouring estuary beach open everyday. There is a nice tearoom in the car park field selling very reasonably priced refreshments. Salcombe is lovely visit and this time we also enjoyed Dittisham with its fabulous crabbing and lovely Anchorstone cafe.

There are so many lovely beaches and estuaries to visit in the area, you will be spoilt for choice.

We stayed a week in a static van. Lovely clean modern two bed van. The kids loved the play area. The shop seemed well stocked and also did fish and chips a few evenings a week. They also had hot pasties available. The staff in the shop were very friendly, as was the warden Paul who showed us to our van.

The site is clean and tidy.

The site is about 5 miles drive to Bigbury on Sea, which is a lovely beach. If the tide is in, then there is a tractor to take you across to Burgh Island, which is nice for a walk/views. It costs about 2. 00 each. Also visited Bantham beach which was good for body boarding. Dartmouth and Salcombe are not too far away either.

It's a very beautiful part of Devon.

This campsite is fantastic.

The site is well kept and it is lovely and clean. The shop is really good and serves hot food.

I took 30 teenagers for the Duke of Edinburgh Award, they loved the spacious site, which was quiet.

However, the best part of this campsite is the warden who is incredibly helpful.

We would definitely use it again and recommend it.

My family and I have been coming back to Pennymoor for over 50yrs. We first discovered this site when we were newly weds and have been coming ever since first camping with our children then with our grandchildren. We now hire a static caravan and I can assure you that the standards in this site are first class and rate a 5star.

The toilet blocks are immaculate as are the showers and laundry facilities the whole site is clean and tidy, with the children's play area always in use.

The static caravans are in exellent condition and always clean, tidy and well equipped.

I recommend this site as the best I have ever stayed in.

A perfect haven in South Devon something I feel should be kept as a secret its that lovely.

Located off A379 up a minor road is this lovely campsite hidden away in Devon yet its very handy to get around the area to expolre the many coves and beaches.

The site does gently slope but don't let this be a negative for it as its very gentle and its not hard to get a caravan level on here. If you want all singing all dancing site with endless noise then this is not for you. If you want a site where you feel safe your children are safe and everyone is welcoming to you then this is the place.

The hot water is plentyfll never had any issues with it and the showers were always hot and powerful none of this silly 2 seconds for a dribble of water here. A mop bucket if provided to clean your shower with afterwards which most people did use. The only problem is the electric hook up is a distance behind your van so you may want to ensure you have a long enough lead to reach it. A bulk head light is on each hook up point and around the toilet blocks and other then a few lights around the static area its a dark site so perfect to enjoy the stars of an evening. Pricing is spot on charging for a family unit with just a small charge if you have a larger family unit and small charge for awnning.

Pennymoor is a beautiful campsite lovely flowers, very clean, the toilet blocks are modern and kept very clean. We received a pleasant welcome from Roger who immediately took us to our pitch explained all we needed to know in just 2 minutes and left us to it with no fuss. Lovely safe play area for children just outside a well stocked shop run by 2 lovely people. All in all a lovely place to stay and explore Devon. Thank you Roger and Helen you should be proud of your site.
