Arrived at the site after missing the turning (sort of expected the site to have a separate entrance). We were booked in without any problem and shown to our pitch by the warden. Shower blocks were lovely and clean and all within easy reach. Pitch nice and flat and easy to pitch on.

We walked down that afternoon and had a quick look around the theme park, which you can come and go as you please. Lots to keep both our 10 and 2 year old busy. Really liked the animal farm, falconry centre and tobogans.

Things we liked about Woodlands:

Clean shower blocks

Entrance to Woodlands (that is reflected in quite an expensive site fee).

Nice level pitches

Things not so keen on:

Lack of hooks in showers

The material of the all weather pitch - loads of tiny shale that gets everywhere in the van, plus during heavy rain the water doesn't drain well and the awning flooded.

Lack of lighting on the main entrance - the entrance is very hard to spot from the Totnes direction in the dark and can easily be missed.

Lack of lighting on site.

The games room can be very expensive for kids - would have been willing to let the kids play on a 2p coin dozer, not 10p - also completely inappropriate for smaller kids.

The site is also missing a central play park - yes they can play at Woodlands, but not without you taking them and in an evening, they missed somewhere to go nearby to play so they could make friends.

Not the parks fault but did not like listening to someone play the bongo nor listening to noisy kids.

In a word superb. People at check in were fab. Slick and easy. Best I have seen. Toilet block clean and useful. Pitches are massive. Theme park makes this a stand out site. Free entry a bonus. Would recommend to anyone with kids. Lots to do around. Try it. Glad we did.

People were friendly on site and we made lots of new friends. General store manager was a good bloke and enjoyed my morning chats when collecting the daily rolls for lunches.

This campsite is excellent. There was clear instruction where to park upon entering and shown where reception was. Check in was fairly quick and not much wait to be shown to our pitch. Pitch was clear and tidy. Found all the facilities to be clean and nice hot showers. We used the family shower rooms and perhaps would of benefitted from a couple more hooks. We made use of the leisure park every day even with torrential rain as plenty of indoor areas. Able to use the playgrounds after the park is shut kept us occupied. Ate out one evening at local pub about 1 mile away ( turn right out of park) nice meal and again a playground for the children. Will definitely return.

Really clean and well organised camp site and chance to use park when not busy. Facilities excellent. Would recommend to anyone with children. Toilet block and showers maintained to an excellent standard. Pitches are well positioned. If you were only going for a camp site it would be good - but you get the theme park too! If you leave before a certain time on the last day, you can even get a refund.

I agree with all the other reviews, great campsite, the theme park connected to the campsite was excellent for the kids. Plenty of indoor stuff if it rains. It was a well organised. My only one concern was, we were staying there just us a family, and unfortunately we were surrounding with group bookings, which to be fair can happen at any campsite. My concern was the noise of all groups late at night. It didn't stop till gone 11pm possible after midnight. I know the campsite have wardens that drive around, but I didn't see any signs of this being addressed. Some campsites have a noise curfew after a certain time. Due to it be very family oriented campsite maybe this should be implemented. Apart from that we would definitely come back and recommend it to anyone.

We loved this place! Naturally we visited to take our daughter to the theme park, but found the camp site was great. Very well organised.

On arrival you are greeted and organised into a parking bay to book in at reception, then show to our pitch once checked in by the helpful and friendly staff. The terraced pitch was all weather, and I would advise you bring some rock pegs if you have them. Although they do rent them out at reception. The pitch as a good size and each terraced bay had room for 8 pitches.

The toilet block as always clean and we never had to wait to use them. The water was always hot, they have little private rooms at the front of the block which is great if your showering a child as you had lots of room to clean and dress them. They have a games room above the toilets, which can get a bit loud in the evening with kids running about, but the staff did ask them to be quiet if it got a bit out of hand. The washing up room, had lots of space and was clean with hot water every time we visited.

The Park was great value for money, so much you would need the 2 days to get round it all. We loved the water rides, we got very wet. You will need your waterproofs. We are not talking just a bit of spray, you will be sitting in water, so bring spare clothes. Its spread out over a valley so some of path ways are very steep. The food stands and restaurants really only seemed to serve chips, Pizza or sandwiches or very processed foods. If its raining, they have a huge indoor soft play area over lots of floors to keep the little ones busy.

Overall if you have kids this place is a must. We had a great time and are definitely coming back, well done Woodlands Grove, its a fab place.
