Arrived at site 45mins early no problem lady warden booked my wife and myself onto site for one week, this was the first time we had stopped at this site and the lady gave us some advice re- the area.

The weather for the week was just about the worst you could get ie, high winds, rain, hard rain, then all three together, this did not stop the wardens doing a fine job they cleaned the toilet block and other duties in very bad weather yes people complained the toilet block was old but let me inform you these toilets are very clean and warm also the water was very hot I am one of people who likes to stand under hot water when I shower these showers never gave just luke warm water.

People forget this site a managed agreement with the racecourse and the club cannot just do things 14. 30 a night not a bad price to pay for a nice pitch good views etc yes some road noise but I will return to this club site.

We stayed at this site as a stopover from Cornwall for 2 nights. Glad we did not stay any longer. The toilet block and showers are so old could only get a trickle of water! There are seasonal pitches on the site and commercial vehicle being left on pitch. The wardens are very laid back, a lot of speeding on the site roads which kicks up a lot of dust. Supposed to be 5 mph. The site is split into 2 sections, the main one and one amongst trees away from the main site. The campers from the other one use their vehicles early morning to use the facilities. Campers washing fresh fish at the dish washing sinks is not really hygienic.

Visited Canonteign Falls, which cost 7. 50 admittance but was well worth it. A lovely walk to the top of the falls, 90 steps, great views and mostly under trees which was welcome on a hot day. There are also lakes and a cafe.

A return visit, we like this site and the area. Normal CC site, immaculate (overheated) toilet block and facilities, wardens were very friendly/helpful. Of course you have the usual CC plethora of notices/rules, plus a few from the Racecourse people, but we can cope with that. Take rock anchors for tent/awning, soil is thin in places. Plenty of dog-walking on or from the site is a plus.

You can hear the A38, but not bad enough to disturb my sleep- unlike the illegal Rave a mile away in the forest all saturday night (apparently 2nd time this year).

The service station over A38 from racecourse has a good convenience store attached, nearest supermarkets are in Exeter.

Only licensed premises within walking distance looked uninviting & had a big sign saying we were not welcome- so cannot comment on them. You have to drive a couple of miles and stay legal for a proper pub. Fortunately the Ley Arms at Kenn or Highwaymans Haunt at Chudleigh are really good (and dog-friendly)

Only stayed for one night on our way to cornwall. A very well maintained site in the middle of the racecourse. The toilet block was clean. Cant comment on the showers as I didn't use them. There is a security barrier and felt safe enough to leave chairs etc outside the van. The warden was friendly and booking in was easy given all the information we needed. Would use again.

Very good distance stopover on-route from Manchester to St Austell, during bank holiday week.

Very easy access off and onto A38.

The racecourse is poorly sign posted, and is approx 3/4 way UP the big hill just after the A380 to Torquay.

We arrived 2 hours late after booking on the Caravan Clubs easybook system, the cost I think was 19. 00 for one night stopover, but the nice warden who lives in van adjacent reception let us in and park wherever we liked.

Its within 8 miles of all Exeters eateries and nightlife, Sainsburys McDonalds and fuel about 5miles, at Marsh Barton.

There is now a code locked gate at the entrance for additional security, and an overnight late arrival area to the left of the security gate just before the race track, Of which the caravan site is situated in the middle off.

Its a very lonely looking site, like most CC sites I have visited, This is probably because of the windy open countryside around and not many vans on site.

The toilets were very clean, just tired looking, I did not notice a playground but it was dark by time we had pitched up been out to eat and refuel.

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.
