Reviewer: Dartgirl81 9 reviews from this member

We were in the area with friends back in July 2016 and noticed this site was doing a special offer for early September, so we went and visited the camp site to have a look. We asked at reception if it would be ok to have a look round, and the girl said it was no problem.

We wanted to look prior to booking as our friends have a very large twin axle tourer that can make it very difficult to get on lots of pitches.

Anyway, we had a look round and we found 2 pitches together that were ideal. We went back to reception and spoke to the young girl, explaining why we wanted to book these particular pitches. She said no problem, we paid our money and she assured us they were reserved for us.

Fast forward to September. We both arrived towing our caravans in torrential rain. Our friends were outside reception, with the caravan still on the hook, they'd been there an hour. The pitches we'd reserved both had other caravans on them. We explained we'd booked these and why, but they were very vague and directed us to 2 more pitches at the top of the field (no apologies at this point) we both drove up to the pitches and lo and behold they had 2 tents on them! Talk about disorganised! At this point my friends husband just wanted to turn round and go home. It was still absolutely bucketing down. Back to reception and asked the girl to get the manager. He didn't show up, but rang her after about 10 minutes to tell her to put us in the CL field. (this is a 5 van separate field) which turned out to be ideal. In all our friends waited 2 hours while this was getting sorted, and we waited for an hour as we arrived after them.

About 3 days after another couple turned up in a touring caravan in our small field and we got chatting and he said he should have been on this pitch yesterday, but a campervan was on it. We noticed later in the day the campervan had been moved to another pitch.

They really should get someone on reception who knows what they are doing!

Now for the site.

Narrow approach, ladies showers ok, but husband said mens showers were dark and dingy with half the lights not working, tiles coming off the walls, and clothes hooks broken from doors.

Laundry (we were looking for dryers due to getting absolutely soaked putting up our awnings) all they had were 3 domestic combined washer/dryers. No separate dryers or spin dryers.

Perhaps because it was the end of the season things were not getting repaired?

They do really push the cider side of things though.

We never did get an apology.

Would I stay here again. Nope.

Absolute paradise! Real community spirit. The owners are friendly and knowledgeable and always welcoming. Kids are more than safe to play all around the site. Always clean and ample facilities and home of the beautiful Hunts Farmhouse cider and apple juice. Which in my opinion cannot be beaten on taste and quality. Found a real gem with this site and cant wait to return for our 3rd year next year. Highly recommended

So we have visted and stayed at Broadleigh Farm a couple of times now and loved our stay, so much so that we have purchased a caravan and have sited it here for the year :) Just spent our 1st full week there and am more than excited to be here for the whole camping season :)

Ideal location, peaceful and not at all commercialised, which is fab. Stunning views and close to so much to do. 15 minutes form Torquay, Babbacombe, Brixham, Paignton. The list is endless. Supermarkets on your doorstep, local shops, Stoke Gabriel is very nice too. We even made it to Dawlish which is only about 40 minutes away. The toilets and showers are the cleanest I have ever used on a campsite. Looking forward to spending our holiday and weekend time here over the year. Worth a visit, if you are happy to kick back, switch off and have some p and q :)

What a lovely site! and lovely people!

Had a super 2 weeks here in Broadleigh Farm. Although peak time for school holidays there's plenty of space both between units and for children and adults alike to play.

A dog walk field is just a few mins walk along the lane to 'the orchard' and is quite big enough to throw balls for our energetic spaniel to chase.

The loo blocks are clean and ample, though, you a thorough mopping of the floor was needed in the ladies first shower as streams run along and back to the basins. Maybe that will get addressed this winter season!

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. A young family arrived having problems with electric and Richard really put himself out to help.

The drive along the lane to the site was a bit hairy at times as rather narrow so passing cars/caravans can be tricky. There are passing places but good driving and reversing sometimes needed.

Views around the site are splendid as this is a quiet 'away from it all' spot. A fish n chips van visits once a week, though I think was gone by 5:30pm - too early for dinner for us! Pubs in Stoke Gabriel (20 min walk) offer food & drink and many mornings/afternoons were spent supping teas/coffees/delicious cakes at the quayside watching families crabbing.

Book up your next holiday here!

Lovely rural site, we went out of season so the office was closed, but the owners were more than happy to see us when we knocked at the farmhouse, very welcoming. Very reasonable price of 12. 50 for the night (campervan no hookup), and also more than happy for us to have our 2 year old and 3 dogs with us at no additional cost (often hard to find a site that will accommodate 3 dogs). Lovely views, field was a little slopy that we in, but there are flat areas too. Facilities were nice and clean.

Well kept site, we stayed here with family and friends, five tents in total, and we were allowed to choose where we wanted to pitch so we could all be together. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful, even going into town to buy an electrical hook up when one of us had forgotten ours! There is lots of open space for children to play without disturbing other campers. There is a reception with lots of info on local attractions, a well kept and clean shower/toilet block, a laundry, dish washing area and a chemical disposal point. There are water taps situated around the site. The weather was fantastic while we were there and we took the opportunity to visit lots of local places. Brixham Lido was a favourite with the kids, an open air pool fed naturally from the sea and filtered into the pool. You can hire a deck chair or sun lounger and relax on the terrace admiring the view while the kids play. Lifeguards are on duty. Best of all it's free! The ice cream in Devon is to die for and I think we all over indulged. Stoke Gabriel village is pretty and the kids can do a bit of crabbing or feed the ducks, there's a small cafe which is also licensed and they have different themed evenings and a quiz night.

Fishing in the area is fantastic, we caught mackerel and sea bass which we cooked on our barbecue for supper. We enjoyed ourselves so much we have already booked for next year!

P. S If you do happen to venture to the toilet block in the night stop and look at the sky, the view of the stars will amaze you!
