Yet again we have been spoiled by a fabulous week at Little Cotton. A warm welcome awaits you upon arrival and nothing is too much trouble during your stay, friendly, polite and helpful 10 out of 10 for customer service. Well maintained, spacious pitches and spotlessly clean facilities - 5 star. We have been to Little Cotton for the last 3 years, at different times - April, May and this year in August. The site is just outside of beautiful Dartmouth with a park and ride service accessible from the campsite. It is within walking distance to Sainsbury, Lidl and the local Leisure Centre and playing fields. If it's the beach your looking for a short drive will take you to Blackpool Sands - cove, shingle beach, café, water sports hire available but sorry no dogs! If you are holidaying with your four legged companion then Slapton Sands is the beach for you. Much quieter than Blackpool Sands, sand/shingle beach and (depending where you park)at the far end is a fabulous pub which serves lovely food and a decent pint. Plenty to do and see in and around Dartmouth. Dartmouth castle is well worth a visit, in the opposite direction Woodlands is great for the Kids with indoor out outdoor activities or why not try your luck at crabbing - great fun for very little money, the crabs love smoked bacon! Paignton - traditional seaside town, Brixham - amble round the little shops and have yourself some fish n chips, sit and watch the fishing boats. If you're a towny and crave a shopping trip then it's Torquay for you, but spare sometime to walk along the Marina and have a light lunch or evening meal. Totnes, Kingsbridge, Kingswear as I said plenty of places to visit and things to do, I could go on and on. Devon is a beautiful place and Little Cotton is a gem of a site. We will certainly be going back.
We stayed here for 3 nights at the start of a two week South West tour. We carry a scooter on the Motorhome but it remained stowed away here. Like others on here we strolled down into town once and crawled back up the steep hill before resorting to the park and ride next door! The park and ride ticket is £5 per car including 6 passengers so if you are cheeky you could cadge a free ride by asking someone to be their Special New Friend for the day!
We enjoyed walks from the site along the coastal path to Slapton And Blackpool Sands (beware no dogs at the latter and it is a private beach so they charge - keep going to Slapton). A regular bus service runs on the route so you can quickly get back to the site by jumping off at the Dartmouth Academy stop (5mins from the site) or carry on into town.
Sainsburys and Aldi are 2 minutes from the site so no hassles there and you don't need a Falmouth review from us ( you wouldn't be looking to stay here otherwise).
Little Cotton Caravan Park itself is ultra-clean, has a very well stocked shop, friendly and well informed staff (hence our experience of the local public transport). We would definitely return.
Just have to leave a review about this fabulous site near beautiful dartmouth. We stayed here for 9 nights, (extended from 7) and really really enjoyed it. The site is very clean and tidy and the pitches are spacious and very well maintained, as are all of the site's facilities. The owners and staff are first rate and access to dartmouth and the surrounding area is very easy. The park and ride, just by the site is cheap, easy and dog friendly, there's a sainsburys and a lidl within very easy walking distance and the dog walk is the best i've ever seen. If i could add one word of warning, it would be that the last few miles from the a381 are a bit winding and in some places quite narrow but this is a very minor point and careful towers shouldn't have a problem. A major warning is, do not go off the a3122 until you see sainsburys on the left and the sign for little cotton caravan park on the right! About a 1/2 mile before the site there is a turn off to the right for little cotton farm and little cotton barn. This should not be taken unless you want to end up with pieces of hedgerow in every orifice of your caravan or camper. Not at all funny! Little cotton caravan park is however excellent. Oh, the fish and chips from the van, which visits several times a week aren't bad either.
We stayed here for 3 nights in June and the weather was fair. The site is well laid out and immaculate. The gardens are well kept and the showers and loos all good and clean. The site is on a steep hill down to Dartmouth which we walked on the first occasion but got the bus the next day as it was quite a stroll. The park and ride is right next door to camp site and costs £5 per car or 4 people I think. There are lots of trips in Dartmouth via train, bus or boats. Pitches are a good size and the whole site was spacious. There was a motorhome service point and small shop. Well worth a visit
We stayed at this site for 9 nights in early june.
My first impression was that it is a very tidy, well run site, in a good location for local amenities.
It has a very large clean and bright toilet/shower block, that does, nt close at awkward times ( like some caravan club sites !). Also a nice area attached to the site for walking the dogs. The grass on the site is very well maintained and so are the hard standing area, s. The site was, nt that busy during the week but obviously got busier at weekend. The shop on site is open long hours which is handy, but I have to say I got well into using the excellent sainsbury, s across the road from the site on a regular basis.
As previously mentioned there, s a park and ride next to the site if you want to spend a lot of hours in dartmouth, we tended to nip down early and park by the side of the road for 2 hours for free ourselves.
Only negatives I can think are the annoying push button controls to the showers that give you 12 seconds at a time for water ! Also I think it could be quite a windy site if you were there in a windy spell of weather.
The surrounding area is very scenic, with lots of places to visit, with plenty of walking ( if your into that sort of thing ) We had great weather even though the forcast kept saying showers ! and left with no regrets.
This has to be the cleanest site we have ever visited.
We were greeted with a smile by the owner and they came to take us to our pitch. He asked if we wanted grass, hard standing, sheltered etc and then took us to what we requested. There is a large dog walk area on site, lots of recycling bins, tons of fresh water points and the toilet/shower block was spotless. They also have privacy cubicles in the shower block. The showers had a nice personal change area with in each shower cubicle and the showers were nice and powerful and hot and FREE. It didn't matter what time of day you went in, it was always immaculate. They also have a small shop, a washing up room and a laundry room.
Its also just 2 mins from the park and ride that takes you into town and 5 from sainsbury and lidle. Highly recommended.
