What a great site this is. At first I was thinking this could be a difficult site to actually drive to, however, on the final approach there is a steep decline down to the Security and reception area. We were greeted by a very happy Security man who directed us to park up and unhitch the caravan, and a tractor will come along and take the caravan to the pitch. The family went and checked us in and 2 minutes later we are following the tractor to our pitch. It was amazing, the view from the pitch was superb, the pitch was clean and fully serviced as per the advertisement. In reality we could have stayed on the site all week without having to leave for anything. We had a really stress free stay and thoroughly enjoyed it. Entertainment was good, the beach and facilities fantastic and the bars and food in the restaurant was again very good indeed. We will book again. We tried to book for the summer but the weeks we wanted were booked. Shame.

This is a large caravan and campsite, can feel lots of caravans, but when we were there not that busy. It has very modern well maintained facilities. In fact they are excellent. The site is sloping down to the sea so there is a view of the sea from most sites ( that my guess) The SWC goes through the site. There is a decent bar and restaurant in the main building. There is also a takeaway. Phone signal ok, mobile data very slow.

Wifi in main building. Swimming pool, but not used by us says Samna and steam room, extra charge pool, minor charge. Staff friendly. If walking idea for a lay down day, with laundrette and shop.

Disappointed with some selfishness of some campers being noisy, ie TV on in tents till very late at night and some drivers too fast on campsite roads. Not managements fault, but not spelt out in booking.

Stayed for a week in the school holidays as a group of 3 tourers. Arrived via some very narrow lanes with steep hills! Caravans are pitched for you as the site is very steep. Toilet block exceptional. Huge on site shop at reasonable prices. Takeaway is the usual fare but service is slow. Entertainment is the standard stuff including bingo. Bar a bit pricey. We ate in the Pebbles restaurant and as a group of 13 we booked our table and pre ordered our food. The food was good but the service was shocking. This was made worse as one pitch in our group had received a voucher for the restaurant as they had to constantly complain about a poorly fitting drain cover in the middle of there awning which smelt awful in the heat.

The beach is only a couple of minutes walk from the pitch. It is a pebble beach with nothing for kids to do unless you hire a kayak or motor boat. We drove to Exmouth which has a lovely sandy beach. Kids are banned from bikes/ scooters and skateboards due to the steepness of the roadways. They can us them but only in the play area which is nowhere near the pitches. This park is predominately for static owners with boats.

No shops or pubs near by and supermarket shopping is in Exmouth, however we had Tesco deliver direct to the pitch. Very poor phone and Internet. One of our party paid for wifi and that wasn't too good either.

Just left this site pitches on a hill but staff take your caravan too pitch which is excellent and the views are superb. Toilet block and laundrette best we have had in a long time, plenty hot water and very clean, was only here for two nights an can honestly say the noise of the seagulls from 4 o'clock in the morning onwards was horrendous for that reason wouldn't return which is a pity as a nice site

This is the first time we had visted this site which is in a lovely beautiful part of devon - we had a pitch on smugglers which i booked only after lots of research to ensure that our tent would fit as tent pitches advertised are rather small, however after a couple of phone calls was assured by jamie that we had been allocated their second largest pitch 173 and this would be more than adequate for our tent

On arrival and after being shown to our pitch by groundsman - we had been allocated pitch no 154 which was only approx 10m x 7m, there had been a mix up in the office and someone had changed our booking - as they were now fully booked we couldn't change !

We couldn't pitch the extention to our outwell tent so my husband and i slept in the living quarters for our holiday

The seagulls are a complete nuisance - they raid your bbq and steal food, poo over everything !

They wake you up at 4. 30am in the morning by screaching and fighting on the roof of tents and caravans

The family next door to us had food stolen from them while eating on the terrace of pebbles restaurant.

While at your tent your are constantly watched/stalked by the seagulls looking for opportunities to steal food

However, there are many nice things about this campsite/holiday park

- great swimming pool

- the showers and toilets block are lovely and modern and always kept very clean

- views of the sea from your pitch are great

- you can buy fresh lobster and crab caught from the bay from the crab shack on the beach at a very reasonable price

- staff are very friendly and helpful

However i doubt we will go back due to the seagulls and the ridiculously small tent pitches

Our second stay at this very nice holiday park. If you have a family, this is a must. However, we do not and this is still a really nice site. The pitches are clean and well tended. The staff helpful and all were very pleasant and helpful. We pitched on the Ridges with spectacular views of the sea. Enjoyed sitting out each evening as the sun went down and the site gradually fell into a tranquil evening darkness. The pool area is newly refurbished and the site has done well. The changing village is clean and has many nice touches. So, what about bad points? To be honest, there are not many. However, I can name three here:

A)we bought wifi for the week and this was expensive and not reliable and only works on one device.

B) There were no hooks outside the shower area for towels so we had to put them in a pile and hope they stayed dry while we showered after swimming.

C) No bins in the touring fields was a little annoying.

Would we go back? Yes, most certainly. We would highly recommend this site.
