A very pleasant, well run and maintained adults only site with large pitches most bordered by attractive trees and shrubs. The log cabin shower/toilet block is spacious and scrupulously clean. For dog lovers there is a large, mown field surrounded by woods for free running. We booked for a week, taking advantage of the 7 for 5 offer, but stayed for a fortnight. Central position for exploring Dartmoor and the south and north of the county. Altogether very pleasant stay and highly recommended.

The site is clean and tidy, toilet and showers also. Pitches are smaller than expected with only a small strip of grass next to gravelled hard standing. WIFI didn't work and after 4days they finally gave a refund. TV reception was very bad, only 1 channel clear enough to watch. No shop only pre order of bread/milk etc.

Chose this site as it's handy for Exeter and the National Park. Easy to find from A30 no narrow lanes to negotiate from there.

Clean and well maintained site with good facilities. Adult only but we have no problems with kids. We didn't have any problems with dogs as some reviewers mentioned.

On the down side this was the most expensive site that we have visited with the smallest pitches which I would describe as adequate rather than generous.

8. 00 for late departure, no point in leaving at 11;00am if visiting only for the weekend so we had to pay that. 2. 00 per day for WiFi (we can live without that)and 2. 50 each 'day charge' if we had invited our daughters (adults) to the site for a meal are charges that are free elsewhere.

There is a 1. 00 off per day voucher on the website but that is for any balance to paid on arrival, as we were asked to pay fully in advance this would have been difficult to redeem.

Gate locked at 11. 00pm to 7:30 am means you can't leave in case of an emergency without calling the owner.

This was our second visit to woodland springs, the attraction for this adult only campsite is the great location for trips to Dartmoor with the lovely views, walks & wildlife that Dartmoor offers.

We stayed for 7 nights with our new tent and this time our 2 dogs, the dog exercise field was great for our dogs (which cannot be off their leads) on a few occasions other dog owners had not cleaned up after their dogs which we feel is unfair, this responsibility should be the dog owners as the bin to put the bags in is just as you leave the field, we feel it was just laziness of the dogs owners and definitely not Chis or Jans responsibilty to clean up.

The site showers & toilets are the cleanest we seen, always hot water and never a queue to use, the washing up facilities are superb and very clean. There is a washing machine & dryer to use with tokens to be purchased from Chris or Jan from the small but essential stocked shop, with fresh bread which can be ordered every morning, fresh milk, cold cider etc.

There is a information hut where there is a variety of information regarding the area plus a freezer to use, coffee machine that has a lovely fresh coffee very reasonable priced.

The site is well maintain and nothing is to much trouble for the owners both are very knowledgeable of the area and will offer advice if/when asked including weather, finding times of high tides or which beach is best to take dogs to. The pitches are very spacious with small trees or shrubs separating the pitches, the site do like you to recycle and this is very clearly marked on each bin. This is all found in the welcome pack you receive on arrival, wifi is availed at an extra cost.

There are a couple of lovely pubs to have a quiet drink in and serve lovely food.

This site is perfect for seeing Devon and we will be back in August with our 2 dogs and for 14 nights this time.

We've just returned from a simply stunning 4 night break at Woodland Springs - we re-booked for another later in the year before we left.

The main selling point is the actual peace & quiet- we love kids - have had them, got the grandchildren & all the relevant T-shirts, but nothing beats a few days away with simply stunning views & no ball games!

The site is immaculate. The hedges were being trimmed (& there are a lot) which did add some afternoon noise! We had intended going all over the area, but confess the weather was so good, on 2 days, we merely slipped out to a pub for meals. The site is SO clean, as are the toilet/shower blocks - which are kept open when cleaning is going on (unlike some sites where you are told to come back later!). We often stay in the New Forest, & now use 'green pods' all the time, so the toilet rule re what to put in it, was no problem, & shouldn't be for anyone nowadays. When I needed milk - the shop had run out, so I ordered one for the evening - but about 30 minutes later, up comes Chris (owner) to our pitch with milk freshly purchased from the local farm! That's service.

The pitch itself was plenty wide enough, & deep enough - having read through these reviews, I'm under the impression folk will moan about anything! We sat on the grass, in our chairs, with our well behaved dogs under a UV sun umbrella.

We sampled 3 different meals out in 3 different pubs, but intend going back to The Drew Arms in Drewsteignton as it was SO good.

The shop sold delicious ice-cream, & we tried 5 of the different flavours - yes, the shop is open limited hours, but just watch how hard the 2 owners work - it really is not necessary to have it open all day long.

The information lodge was stacked with leaflets, walks etc, & the coffee machine was very tempting - but we now have our own small bean to cup machine!

I wouldn't fault anything (apart from the loud diesel noise from the hedge cutter - but when could it be done on a 7 day per week, all year round site? - we fully understood!)

Can't wait to go back - hopefully to late autumn sunshine!

Well, there were some great bits to this site and some. Well, not so great.

My party con sited of me my wife and out little jack russel Joe

The site is immaculate and well maintained with little extras such as a laundry and information centre

The shop on site was just a wooden shed only opened a certain times of the day. There was a service they provided for pre ordering bread I ordered some great croissants they were nice. Only to find out that on our trip to the local town I found out they had come from lidl and they were cheaper in store. Not happy with that.

The staff were very welcoming when I arrived

I quite agree with another reviewer, the site has got a very big welcome pack its more like a book it took my wife about 30min to read the thing before we could properly settle down and start our holiday.

There was no hedge or boarder to speak of between the vans just a few pots placed here and there.

The shower and toilet block was very well cleaned and maintained showers were free and lovely and hot only downfall you had to keep pressing the shower button every so often as it went off not the best when you have shampoo on your head and your trying to find the button with your eyes closed.

My wife also noticed the owner going around with a sprayer like backpack spraying everywhere which I presumed was weedkiller I was annoyed at this because I took my dog for walks on the path in witch they was seen spraying I had to wash his feet as they became sore.

An ok site but not the best we have stayed at

We would stay here again if we were heading to cornwall but only as a one night stop.
