Stayed at this site for a week at the beginning of June. Fantastic welcome from the Wardens Gary and Sarah, so friendly and nice. The site itself is right in the middle of the racecourse with lovely views of the surrounding woodlands. You can walk around the whole race track as there's a tarmac road, I think it's about two miles long, it's a gem of a site for dog owners. The small toilet block is a bit dated but always kept extremely clean. There are two areas to pitch in, one is bordered by trees and has stacks of space, the other is on the main part of the site nearer to the facilities with those views.

There is a diner just a five minute walk away that gives free tea and coffee if you're staying on site, nice staff and a lovely full English.

There's so much to do in the local area we think this site is an ideal base to visit south Devon.

Stopped for a couple of nights on route to Cornwall. Easy access from A38 but very short slip road joining A38 westbound when you leave so be prepared.

A very open site with nice views across countryside but can be windy.

Toilets old and cramped but kept clean.

Makes ideal stopover when going to and from Cornwall

This is a wonderful campsite, which is set in some lovely surroundings.

The staff were extremely helpful and friendly.

The showers and toilets were up to date and very clean at all times.

We were lucky enough to watch a lovely sunset over the wooded area while our children played on the grass.

The site is near Exeter which is a Lovely City to visit with lots going on and a visit to the quay is a must, lots of lovely pubs, restaurants and things for children to do.

Or you have Haldon Forest right next to the campsite, this has a bike trail, some lovely walks from easy to the more adventurous, and there is a little sanded play area for the children to play in while you enjoy a coffee or food after.

All in all an enjoyable experience.

We have used this site twice now as a one night stopover en route to Cornwall.

It is very easy to find and it is a bit of a novelty being pitched next to a racecourse track!

The staff are very friendly and gave us a large pitch so that I did not have to unhitch the caravan - very thoughtful.

The site is quite exposed but that gives some good views of the surrounding countryside. There is lots of space to walk dogs or for the kids to boot a ball around.

The toilet block was very clean as you would expect from the CC.

We will be back next year!

I am sorry to report that this site has caused a right rift in this household.

The not so good bits then

For a caravan club site we were expecting better. The water pressure in the showers is poor and no where near as good as it should be.

There is very little in the way of security on site other than some old looking CCTV and when you see what is 1/2 a mile down the road you would be expecting better security. Twice watched cars come in for a drive around.

Road noise can be loud at times and the occasional twin rotor helicopter in the evening is quite a breeze.

Good stuff then

Wardens are pleasant and welcoming, apart from the noise of the road it is quite well placed for going either north or south onto the dual carriageway

Summary then

Not for one of us unless the CC invests in this site which it needs and it would be brilliant like Yarmouth is

Its a pity as the wardens are brill and its location is excellent for exploring the area

Site has good access and easy to pitch up. Can be very windswept.

Toilets clean and warm, but showers did not have a lot of power.

The main part of the site is next to the wardens hut, but there is another part off to the left in the trees which is more secluded.

There is a Spar shop, which you can walk to on the other side of the A38 next to the BP fuel station.

It is disappointing that this site is not open all year as I am sure it would be well used.

The main downside of the site where the Wardens who were very unfriendly and somewhat offhand.

A total contrast to most CL's.
