Just returned from 2 weeks staying in the lower field.

Plus points.

Staff were really friendly, from reception to the warden and security. Site is in good location for the beach and surrounding ares. 2 good pools. Entertainment staff work hard and keep the kids amused. Restaurant served very good food, and only a 1-2 more than a normal pub. Plenty to do on site for the whole day.

Bad points.

Toilets are dated and several people complained about the cleanliness. This was dealt with, but it doesn't help when other families children use them as a play area!

The site is very hilly, and quite a steep walk to the shop and entertainment. O. K. Coming back.

There are a lot of seasonal pitches on the lower field. It does create a 'click' and a sense that they own the area. Not really a camping feeling. Created a lot of noise as well, as which some families complained. The warden did acknowledge that they are aware of the situation, and did apologize, which was a good response.

Had a good holiday, but don't think that we will be returning.

A lovely site with great facilities and plenty to do for children. Great views out to sea from the bar/restaurant and a pleasant 10-15 minute walk to the beach. We loved the site until the point where we were told to take down our small storage tent as they are 'not insured' for tents. Our motor home was surrounded by touring caravans with massive awnings covering almost their entire pitch area but our tiny tent containing our sons toys, his bike and our deck chairs was considered to be an insurance risk. We had to stuff everything under the motor home and thankfully it didn't rain. The family opposite were told to take down a little gazebo which was nothing more than 4 canvas legs with a cover. It was ridiculous. We liked everything about the site apart from this but we wouldn't be able to stay again for more than a few days as we wouldn't be able to store enough things for any longer, let alone have somewhere dry to put things if it rains. I'd give this consideration if you are a motor home owner who doesn't have an awning that actually attaches to your van. We nicknamed the staff 'the fun police' because, as well as the storage tent issue, our little boy wasn't allowed to play with his small inflatable ball in the pool either. They're very over the top with rules there.

I have visited this site before and have to say that I was a little bit disappointed this time.

The site itself is quite hilly and the centre is looking a bit dated although these things don't really matter. The swimming pool is great and the kids loved the water slide, although the shower facilities are not great - much better at Hoburne Bashley were they have shower cubicles big enough to fit the family in.

The bit that disappointed was the entertainment team in respect of the kids. On our previous visit the entertainment was brilliant and the kids did not stop going on about it. I picked the Pirate Weekend thinking that it would be packed with activities for the kids but it wasn't. We turned up for the pirate hunt only to find that it was cancelled due to not enough children - very hard to explain to 2 children dressed up as pirates who had been looking forward to it. In the evening the team just seemed to lack that spark which had been there on our previous visit.

On the whole it is a good site in a good location and I would go back there again, but would benefit from a bit of a refurb.

Easy to get anywhere from this site.

Just back from 4nights at this site

Although in an excellent position and very clean(beach at goodrington 10-15 min walk paignton pier 15-20) there were a few niggles and would recommend that anyone when booking especially in a campervan enquires which part of the touring field there staying on as it can make a big difference

Plus points

Excellent location, very clean on site, staff friendly, shop reasonably priced

Negative points

Bar very expensive 3. 70 a pint of fosters!

Indoor pool cold, jacuzzi cold, shower blocks cold although showers were nice and hot entertainment/pub closes at 11pm, security staff walk round like nightclub bouncers telling non-rowdy campers to stop drinking outside at 11. 15pm!

Pitches on top field on massive slopes so could not get level so spent most of the time rolling down the camper!

Would I go again yes! but would find it cheaper to drink in paignton or at the 'inn on the quay ' in goodrington. Excellent food at good prices

And would def check my pitch before booking next time

Nice site, we stayed in the lower field which was a bit soggy, but not terrible. Given us being there in October this was hardly surprising.

Facilities were good, pool and bar good. The site is well presented, and situated. Access to the site is good, and washing facilities above average, when not really busy.

The staff were really friendly, and the site operates a discount scheme for local attractions if you speak to the reception first.

Really enjoyed the stay there, will return again one day.
