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 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.
We visited mid week and it was very quiet which was nice. Unfortunately when we stayed the weather was atrocious, which wasn't the fault of the owner but with the site being on the top of a very exposed hill we struggled to stay in our motorhome.
The site was spotless, beautifully kept and the facilities were also very very good. The push button showers could last longer but equally they were hot and a good water pressure, so you can press the button as often as you like.
I used the laundry services too which were fantastic. Easy to use and again, spotless.
Location is great, very near Dartmouth which can be accessed by local bus, park and ride bus and we had a taxi one night too. Sainsburys across the road from the site means you never need for anything.
We had the fish and chips one night when the van came round. It's great that you have the option but they were far too greasy and not cheap. However, it was lovely to not cook!
Be warned, the walk back from town is hard work, I pushed our toddler up in a pushchair and am quite fit but I still struggled. Plenty of transport options though I was just trying to get some exercise.
Great site if the weather is good, we would definitely return.
Just returned from a very pleasant 4 days at this site. Having turned up without booking, we were welcomed to a half empty site midweek, though it filled up a bit over the bank holiday weekend. Lots of hardstandings set among grass, the whole site was beautifully kept and with a modern toilet block kept very clean. Not the cheapest at £20 per night, rising to £23 in midsummer, but well worth it. No dedicated motorhome service point, but fresh water can be filled by drawing up near a tap, waste has to be 'bucket and chuck it'. Only 2 complaints to stop a perfect star score - you have to leave by 11. 00 on the morning of departure, rather than noon, and the showers are push button type - they do not give you very long before you have to press again.
As mentioned before, one of the big advantages of this site is its proximity to a fascinating town and area - good for motorhomers as near shops and public transport. One tip though for anyone with a buspass - do not spend £5 per party on the park and ride bus, but now the little local bus serves the entrance every half hour and gets you into town via the local housing estate for free and with an extra 5 minutes on the bus - and it runs late into the evening as well!
This has been our 8th stay at Little Cotton and it still remains the marker to judge all other parks by.
The park is immaculate in every way. The toilets and showers are spotless. The grass is meticulously manicured by Paul on his 'Magic Machine'. The roadways are clean and neat, the rally field is kept neat and tidy(often neglected in a lot of parks)and the dog field kept neat and tidy.
The park is a real credit to The owners Paul and Dorothy and their staff. The reception has a small shop for convenience items and some caravan/camping spares.
There is a large Sainsburys opposite the park and Lidl a few hundred yards down the road.
A park and ride next to the park will take you down into Dartmouth town £5 for up to 6 people or a bus stop a little further on for us lucky ones with bus passes. You then get a choice of ferries across to Kingswear and beyond on the steam train.
All in all this is a real gem of a park and we shall continue to go back there as long as we are able.
