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!

Excellent site with easy access. Medium size pitches, some all weather, some grass. Very faint road noise in far distance. Overall, 9* but with a couple of small negatives.

The toilets only had 4 cubicles and no urinals for the men. Also only 2 showers in each of men's and women's block. However, in spite of a virtually full site, there was never any congestion. The water in the shower was hot enough but one had to keep pressing the button every 6/8 seconds which was a bit annoying especially for my wife when she wanted to wash her hair.

A small shop with basic things in reception and also delicious fresh bread in the morning. Very friendly wardens.

Good dog exercise area (nearly everyone had dogs) and a 25 minute walk to a dog-friendly pub across the fields with really good food.

Would definitely visit again if in the area.

We only stayed on this site for one night. The toilets and showers were amongst the cleanest that I have ever seen and the recycling was first class. It is dog friendly and a has a superb dog walking field. Sites were level and the site was quiet.

On the downside there were rules, rules and yet more rules. I felt that the welcome pack was more of an unwelcome pack. It stated that it was the garden of the owners and to treat it with respect; it was just rather intimidating and uncomfortable.

Just back after two weeks on this site. Toilet facilities were excellent as was the dog walk. We found a nice walk, thanks to the site owners, to a local pub where we had an excellent meal; it was about 2 miles each way. There's lots of walks in the area and the scenery is lovely. The narrow roads in the area became annoying and we took very long detours to avoid them after a few days.

The pitches were large enough but not over generous and we could just about get the car across the front of the pitch. We have a 7. 3 metre caravan and an A6 estate so they are quite long.

We are avid recyclers at home and were pleased the refuse area on site was so well organised.

We found the owners to be very helpful and hard working. There are rules, they were fully explained and frankly made sense for the benefit of all.

We had no need to use the shop on site during our stay.

We found the site very quiet and perhaps lacking in atmosphere but we enjoyed our stay and would certainly go back if we were back in the area.
