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.

Arrived on site to find it clean tidy clearly marked directions.

Reception and staff very friendly and helpful, was greated with an upgrade as the original caravan booked had a problem.

Facilities was great both indoors and out, good food good entertainment good shop great caravans, all in all a brilliant week for all of us, kids loved the indoor pool and flume

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.

We stayed here towards the end of June while visiting family.

This campsite is alright, it has a nice play area, the pool and inside pool need attention especially the Jacuzzi as you kind of fall in and risk breaking something, plus it can be quite slippery and this applies also with the pools and you can hardly see where you are stepping.

The views from the play ground are good and you can see Torbay

The Woodlands in Dartmouth near Totnes is worth visiting.

The campsite is hilly in places and found it not brilliant for wheel chairs and push chairs as I had the job of pushing someone around and I found getting lost looking for locations on camp quite common.

Overall I would give this campsite about 6 / 10.

This is our 3rd year now and we love this site,it represents excellent value for money. The pitches are spacious and in general the area and facilities are kept very clean and tidy, this is due to the hard work and dedication of the wardens who are always cheerfull and friendly. The pools are clean and well managed and the added bonus is the sauna and steam room.

We like being able to take a walk down to the beach (about 15 minutes scenic walk). The shop has most items that you need and Morrisons and Sainsburys are only 5 minutes away. The entertainment was good and varied and as usuall with Hoburne the staff are always friendly and helpful and happy to assist you. The weather during our stay was great and relaxing by the outdoor pool was just fantastic.

This site never feels crowded or busy during school holidays. We noticed lots of people pitched near us were the same as last year which speaks for itself. Our children cant wait to go back and see friends they have made over the years, the playground, arcade, and lounge area keep them well entertained. There is lots to do in Torquay, Paignton and Brixham which are all a short drive away. Well done Hoburne for another great holiday, all of us including our friends who visited for the first time this year hope to see you again next year.
