We've just had a fantastic 5 nights at this excellent CC site.

Small'ish B road down to the site but with passing places so nothing to worry about.

Easy, friendly, efficient booking in. As with most CC sites you get to choose your pitch. We always prefer hardstanding pitches but these are quite limited here and usually the first to be pitched on. We were very lucky this time and got a very secluded pitch with a glimpse of the sea up 'the avenue'.

Great facilities on site. 2 toilet/shower blocks, both always spotlessly clean and never had to queue for a shower once. Plenty of water points dotted around the site, with bins, recycling, and covered washing up areas too. Small but well stocked shop where you can buy daily newspapers without ordering and a good selection of food and drink. Bar and restaurant on site (which we didn't use this time). The wardens kindly recommended a local Indian takeaway that delivered to the site and it was excellent.

Plenty to do from the site without moving our motorhome. Bus stop right outside the site. 4 each return to Brixham which turned out to be expensive as we later discovered the 'day rider' ticket for 4. 90 which allowed you unlimited travel within the whole of the Torbay area (to Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Newton Abbot, Totnes, etc. ). 3. 40 each return to Kingswear where you can catch the steam train, ferry over to Dartmouth, etc. , etc. We purchased the Jubilee Pass which allowed us unlimited travel on the train, ferry across to Dartmouth and numerous boat trips. The cost was 37 each for a 3 day pass and in our opinion it was well worth it. We certainly got our moneys worth. We did the Round Robin, a sea cruise and the steam train twice!

I have no doubts we'll be back to Hillhead again at some stage.

Having read previous reviews of this site, I had high expectations. Unfortunately they were not to be fulfilled. All the facilities appear to be up to normal Caravan Club standards, but the site itself had an unpleasantly cramped and crowded feel. When we arrived, the only available hardstanding pitches were tiny 'lay - bys' alongside the site roadways, with no view and very close in all directions to adjacent units.

We were assured by the warden who booked us in, that the available grass pitches would be fine for our 'van. The fact that we subsequently had to spend a pleasant half-hour extricating the 'van from a bog, cast some doubt on that assertion. We also noticed considerable road noise on substantial areas of the site. Eventually, we gave up trying to find a suitable pitch and agreed with the warden that we would effectively transfer the booking to nearby Ramslade.

The site's key asset is it's location and there is no doubt that it is well placed for Brixham, Dartmouth etc. There are, however, altogether more pleasant sites in the area offering similar access.

A lovely site in between Brixham and Kingsweir / Dartmouth, yes its at the top of a hill, on the outskirts, but that lead to it being peaceful. As usual, excellent shower facilities and knowledgeable, helpful wardens keeping the site immaculate. For us walkers both Brixham & Dartmouth (via the passenger ferry) are lovely walks with the dogs, the dog field was more than adequate for general ablutions and large enough to let off lead for a good stretch after miles on the lead. Very challenging but stunning walk to Mansand Beach where the dogs can have a swim. For non walkers the bus stop is directly outside the site so for me its an ideal all rounder of a site. Pool not yet open and didn't use the clubhouse as not our thing

Lots of other reviews about this site talk about the fact it it is very hilly and you'll need level if blocks. It's called HILLHEAD - What do people expect??

It's a great family campsite in a great part of South Devon, a large site that is terraced forming lots of 4/5 pitch clusters which we really liked. Some were smaller than others, but when we arrived we were shown a map of available pitches which we walked round and looked at before we chose one.

The site had a Pool which we enjoyed using, it had a bar and restaurant which were nice, a little noisy but food, service and atmosphere were great.

Don't bother with the wifi, we use Caravan Club sites regularly so we have a 12 month wifi token that can be used at any caravan club site.

There is loads to do locally, we took a bus to Brixham town which was lovely, we ate in a restaurant on the harbour side which was great. Got taxi back which was just as cheap as the bus fare there. We also went to Dartmouth via the foot passenger ferry. Both were very beautiful seaside towns, we'll certainly visit again. We took a Round Robin tour, going by boat, bus and steam train, stopping at Totnes, and Paignton. Well worth the trip.

Spotless facilities and superb customer service from the CC as one would expect. Quite a hilly site so if you pitch at the lower part of the site you have quite a steep incline to walk to the facilities and bus stop on the main road. Decent playground for the kids with a HUGE playfield but only a small dog exercise area for the size of the site. Small off-the-lead dog walk in a lane next to the site but this leads to a very demanding but dog friendly walk up and down to a remote beach where you can pick up the South Devon Coastal trail.

Nice heated pool, decent enough bar with musical entertainment on most evenings. Very good shop. Site handy for short drive into Brixham or beautiful Dartmouth. No local pub within walking distance unfortunately

The site is in a great location and not far from the King Harry Ferry to Dartmouth. The site is very well kept and has hedges partitioning pitches. Some of the pitches are sloping though, so need to carry levelling blocks. It has a swimming pool plus unusual for a Caravan Club site, a games room of the electronic variety. There is also a bar and restaurant, plus a shop on site. The only thing I would not spend money on is the Caravan Club wifi operated by AirAngel. I thought I would try it for one day at 2. 50 and never once got connected. I was a very short distance from the transmitter too, so don't waste your money.
