Reviewer: Andy1100xx 6 reviews from this member

Stayed here for 1 night in August. Site is located on the outskirts of a small village close as the crow flies to Plymouth but in reality a good 30 minutes drive through some small lanes.

Great location for 'getting away from it all' with some lovely views (from certain pitches) and great cliff top walks in the area. It is however very exposed and quite remote and, without any toilet/shower facilities, you do need to be self sufficient. Upside of this is that even at peak holiday time there was plenty of room

Half of the site is on flat with the remainder dropping away quite considerably - weather was very stormy when we stayed and we were advised by the warden to park only on the flat areas due to difficulty in getting out after heavy rain.

We ate at the Mussel Inn (5 mins walk away) and the food, drinks and service were good.

We initially intended to stay 3 nights but with the storm expected to last three days we moved on after the first night as it really was too exposed to be pleasant in those conditions.

Overall a nice enough site but just a bit too 'niche' for us to return.

We have previously visited this site and the standard of care and quality is consistent, the site is kept clean and toilets etc. Are first class. We went to the close-by pub for a very good meal one evening and would encourage anyone for the experience. I like to go fishing in the now two pools/lakes and had some good catches and is only a short walk from the site. We expect to visit again very soon.

A lovely clean site with beautiful views across Plymouth sound. It was lovely watching the boats and water from the camper. The site itself is very basic with no toilets or showers, but the motor home service area is well laid out and maintained. The site is well looked after and the wardens very friendly and helpful. Easy walk to lovely pub, shop and dog friendly beach.

We visited the site on 4th and 5th April 2014.

We arrived around 8pm and were met by the two wardens; we found both to be friendly and helpful.

The site isnít signposted overly well and the entrance to road is very tight. We have a 7 meter long Motorhome which coped with the roads, but I would suggest a large caravan would have difficulties navigating the roads leading to the site.

This is a very basic site as clearly stated and has little to no facilities, toilets or a shower block.

We were asked to park at the rear of the site, I think stand 22.

We have a rear sitting room and therefore once the silver screen was over the windscreen we could have been parked anywhere which was disappointing as the main reason for visiting was to see the views.

My partner did ask the warden if we could drive our van in, this wasnít permitted for some reason.

There are no hard standing pitches, this turned out to be a pain as the grass had been cut, but hadnít been collected. We have two dogs and the mess was terrible as it was raining the whole time we were there!

Overall I would only recommend this site for a couple of nights at the most, for those with a Motorhome the only place to park is at the rear of the site as most of the other pitches are slopping. If you have the same layout as us you wonít see a thing!

Hope that helps!

A small site in a lovely location with spectacular views (and sunsets) over Plymouth Sound. The final road approach is a little narrow in places but didn't present us with any problems.

Caravans use the forward more sloping pitches with motor homes allocated to the rear. Despite not being at the front, our pitch (51) still had a really lovely view. It's worth having your binoculars to hand to keep an eye on passing sea traffic.

The wardens are very friendly and eager to pass on information to help you get full enjoyment from your stay. We were more than happy to take advantage of a 10% off voucher for the nearby Mussel Inn which serves great food.

We had calm sunny weather but I can imagine it's a bit turbulent on the open site with a brisk westerly blowing.

The village has a limited bus service with just 3 scheduled stops per day. A rover ticket for 2 was £6 and we left around 9. 50am to go into Plymouth (35 min journey) and caught to final service back at 2. 15pm which gave us 3 hours browsing time. Alternatively you could get a taxi back which costs approx £9.

There are numerous footpaths in the vicinity. We had a lovely afternoon tea at the coastal cafť a 15 minute walk from the site.

There is no toilet block at this site but we were aware of this before booking. Despite our visit being at the height of school holidays there were few children on site and I guess part of the reason for this relates to the lack of facilities.

The motor home grey waste point was on the flat and easily accessible.

Wow, what a beautiful site. The view across Plymouth Sound is amazing. We spent 2 nights here and could easily have stayed longer. Loved it. The lack of facilities wasn't a problem, had fresh water and an emptying point. The weather was fantastic, so no need to go anywhere. Would we return, most definitely. Only one other site we visited came anywhere near this one. 10/10. Fantastic. Can't wait to go there again.
