Stayed at kennford for 3 nights site was nice, quite centrally positioned so good if you plan on visiting different resorts as it is right next to a38, we were positioned on far side of site away from road and had no traffic noise issues at all there are quite a lot of seasonally sited vans on this site.

The toilet block was clean and water temp good there is a small club on site which was quite nice and all staff I came across were polite and very friendly.

There are two pubs across road the gissons and the exeter hotel we never used hotel but ate at the gissons nice pub, food was lovely and staff very helpful.

I would stay at kennford again as it was a nice site and cheap.

My only gripe was on leaving site with caravan on back is the road exiting the park is quite steep and has a large speed bump which caused me issue as slowing on a hill to go over speed bump is a struggle thankfully I didn't have to give way at junction as would have been a job to get going again.

Our second visit here in as many years. The site is chosen because of a) it's location to where we wanted to go and b) because we've stayed there before

There were lots of us booked to go but the weekend event was cancelled and so lots of people cancelled their camping too. The owners were very understanding of this and because they knew us all anyway, we hadn't paid any deposits so there was nothing to refund. This was very much appreciated by our club members an I suspect lots of others too. They also gave us a group discount despite that fact that only 3 of us turned up (out of about 10).

Since last year the site has seen a fair amount of work and the number of static caravans has increased, but there is still lots of trees and bushes that mean the site is still very 'green' and uncluttered. It's very peaceful

Because of the cancellations we were giving a serviced pitch instead of the camping field, and the owners were very helpful indeed.

Everything very neat and tidy as per our previous visit, toilets/showers were spotless, bar was welcoming and they put the football on a big projected screen for us.

Still an amount of road noise which seems to start very early in the morning, but to be fair it is the main road in/out of Exeter.

Looking forward to going back again next year.

A few of our friends had stayed at this site before (for the last few years actually) so we didn't hunt around for a site, we just took their recommendation.

Initially my thoughts were. It's very small. We don't do EHU and so were told we could camp anywhere on the camping 'field' which used to be the children's park. The 'field' is a square piece of sloping grass about 60 meters square. There are pitches all around it for EHU and a number of static and standard caravan pitches. We camped at the bottom which was the flattest part, but found ourselves rolling together in the night.

The barrier is operated by a security card for which a £10 deposit is required. No locks on the toilets though or combination locks that you can never remember the number for when you're desperate for the loo in the middle of the night.

The toilets themselves were clean, albeit with a slightly odd layout. Each shower cubicle has a sink cubicle directly opposite. Ok. Maybe not odd to anyone else. Just me. Plenty of hot water available though, and the pushbutton showers lasted longer than some I've been to.

The site is situated next to the very busy A38, and so expect a lot of road noise. For me, it's more like a white noise which I find quite relaxing, but for others it was too noisy to sleep properly.

There's an on site bar (and a good pub just 5 mins walk away). The nearest local shop is about a 15 minute walk and a petrol station just the other side of the A38.

There's 5 sinks for washing up, only three of which have taps though. I never saw more than two being used at any one time so don't think this is a problem.

We'll probably be back again next year because of it's location to where we needed to actually visit, but might have a look to see if there are any alternatives first.

Check in was easy and warden friendly. The shower and toilet block were OK. The shower cubicles would have been better if there was a bench or stool so that you could keep your watch etc off the floor. There is a clubhouse on site which opens weekends. There is no shop on site. There are quite a number of static vans.

The nearest pub is around a 10 minute walk - The Gisson's. It is just across the road but as it is a highway you have to walk across the overpass. They serve nice meals and is a lovely atmosphere.

Kenn village is fairly close. Across the overpass and down a very steep lane. It is quite pretty with thatched cottages and pubs. The sign said 1/4 mile but we drove down and it seemed a lot further. Also it would be a very steep walk back up.

There is a bus into Exeter which runs every 90 minutes. There is also a Park and Ride around 5 minutes drive away. We drove in as it was raining and found no problem parking. It is around 15 minutes drive into town.

I would recommend this site.

We stayed an extra two nights what more can be said!

Every thing about this site was fantastic.

The owners and the staff were very friendly and helpful.

The permanent/semi permanent and day to day residents were very friendly and there wasn't a day went by without some one stopping to say 'morning', 'evening' etc. Or just to have a general chat.

The toilet/shower blocks were kept immaculately clean and were never any where near crowded even though the site was busy.

The rubbish bins were emptied every day.

Security was top notch

Whilst staying here we visited places in Devon, Dorset and Cornwall it's and ideal site to use as a base for visits to places like Monkey World etc.

I have a really great time in this campsite. Everybody is friendly, with a warm welcome.

The campsite is quiet, the pitches are large, you'll feel in connection with the nature.

Sanitary are always very clean

The bus station is maximum at 100 meters and deserve very well Exeter and Torquay area.

DO not hesitate to go to the bar of the campsite in the evening, you'll have a great time with the team.

I recommend highly this campsite and I'll return there if I have the opportunity
