We had a 4 night stay here and have mixed views about the site.

We love and know the area very well having stayed many times in self catering properties. It's a great area for those who like their walks, beaches and countryside.

The lady on reception was very friendly and helpful upon arrival which is always a good start.

We were able to pitch wherever we liked in the camping field and were about to set up when someone advised us that where we were may get the 'worst of the bad smell' from the sewage! We had already began to notice it.

However, we pitched further up the field with no problems and had fanatstic peaceful views over Dartmoor.

The facilities were fine. There was plenty of hot water, they were clean and we never had to queue. I thought the common room was a lovely idea and would be greatly appreciated if the weather had turned bad. Tea and coffee was supplied and could be made for a donaton and there was also a fridge/freezer, very useful.

I believe, from what a couple of people told us, that the size of pitches for caravans was too small. We had no problem in that regard in the camping field.

We would return but only if we knew in advance we could be away from the smell!

This site is clean with magnificent view over Dartmoor.

However, pitches for sitting out on are rather small, although didn't bother us too much.

The site has been sold by the original owners/founders to a larger company. There is a manager who speaks when spoken to, and is polite. Although I found this site to be 'Not Joined uP' in other words, it's a site that is there with very little communication with anybody working for the owners, a case of take your money and tell you where to park. And that's it.

I am not running this park down as you can see it was well loved and looked after by the original owners, but I do wonder where it's going?

Lastly the directions take you via two routes, although both ways have narrows roads and care should be taken, I would avoid route 2, it takes you on an extra 8 to 10 mile trip, is poorly marked, and not much benefit.

We have just returned from 4 nights camping at Moor (subject to weather!) View. Overall this promises to be a really good site. The camping field is pretty level; the grass is cut short; and there is a roller at the top of the field which tends to indicate that care and concern is taken over the campers' comfort. The amenities block is fine - we saw no indication of the other criticisms of the toilets being closed for long durations for cleaning. In general they were perfectly serviceable with six toilets for women. 3 cubicles for men, plus urinals - neither of us ever had to wait for a vacancy. There is a 'common room' with tea/coffee making facilities, tv, table tennis table and, most importantly, a freezer for your ice blocks!

Immediate impressions: on entering the camping field, there was a discernible smell of sewage which persisted for the majority of the stay - this was at the entrance of the field and didn't affect where we were - at the top of the field. Disappointingly the bins were full when we started on a Thursday and had still not been emptied on the Monday of our departure, with bins overflowing onto the floor. The sight of this and the previously mentioned smell would have made a disheartening start to anybody's holiday which is a shame because generally it is a really good site.

Each evening, we enjoyed a visit to the pub down the road at California Cross and found the Dartmoor Jail Ale much to our liking! This seems a popular venue and worthily so.

On a very wet day, we stumbled across the Venus Cafe at Blackpool Sands. And it was surprisingly good for a beach cafe. The food was excellent quality!

The weather, for the most part, was pretty shocking which doesn't affect the quality of the campsite however it was challenging! So much for English Summer in July!

The over-60's discount is a nice touch and was appreciated!

Would we return again?. Yes!

Spent an enjoyable week at this site despite some really awful weather. Rain and gale force winds every day. The site is pleasant and very clean and tidy. Lovely flat field for campers. Great views across Dartmoor. Fish n' chip van visits Wednesday. Nice dog walk. Plenty of places to visit. Bigbury on Sea is pretty and Burgh Island is a short walk across the beach. Catch the sea tractor back when the tide is coming in. The new owners are pleasant and welcoming and really try hard to make your stay enjoyable. Would we visit again? YES.

A blissfully quiet site in the middle of nowhere. The site is kept very clean, grass cut and everything well maintained. The staff are friendly, welcoming and exceptionally helpful. The only downside is that the pitches are small - even the middle sized ones are quite tight and if you don't have a hedge between you and your neighbour, you do feel a bit overlooked and can hear everything next door. WiFi is a bit intermittent but then we are on holiday and should manage without!

These niggles apart, the site is lovely. Excellent dog walking (and walking in general) - in fact, I wondered if it was a condition that you had to bring a dog there were so many here (but not a problem). Usual Devon issues with roads but then if you go to Devon you must expect this. Modbury is quaint with some nice little shops, Dartmouth is lovely and there are some wonderfully quiet, hidden beaches along this stretch of coast. Definitely worth a visit and we will go again.

This was our third stay at Moor View but the first time with it under the new ownership of Dawn and Connor. We have always loved it here as it is a/ adult only, therefore delightfully quiet and b/ the facilities are always spotless. When we arrived we received a friendly greeting from Connor and our pitch was indicated to us on the map in reception. We had booked a 9m value pitch - perfectly adequate as it has EHU and water. True enough, you share the hook-up with the pitches either side but that's hardly an inconvenience. As we are old duffs, we took advantage of the old duffs's discount so our 5-night stay came out at 14. 95 pn. Excellent value, I think.

Now then, this is where I get a bit negative - point b/ if you remember was the spotlessness of the facilities. And that has changed. Ok, they are adequately clean, being comparable with many other sites with somewhat lower standards. But previously, you just couldn't find fault. Now, my impression of how the ladies showers are dealt with is that they no longer bother to sweep the floor before mopping. They just swirl the bits of dust and hair around with hot, soapy water and leave it at that. In one of the three cubicles the shower curtain had been left to develop a disgusting and rather off putting black mouldy bottom edge. The loos appear clean but again, the edges of the room are strangers to the broom. One evening, there was a bit of a stale wee smell in there - this would have been totally unheard-of in days of yore. Disappointing.

On the whole, this is still a good site for a visit -very quiet site, pleasant pitches, nicely laid out, heated facilities, fabulous view of Dartmoor - but it has slipped down the league for me, purely because of the slapdash cleaning.

One last thing - they've done away with the pool table in the games room. Why? It is now a faux cafe with tea/coffered machine. Not a bad idea as such but a real shame about the pool table.
