A busy and rather cramped site, very popular out of season, with insufficient toilet facilities at times.

Most pitches have sufficient 'fall' even the gravel hardstanding ones to be free draining, however some have so much fall you may need some very tall levelling blocks, one caravan we saw was up on 8' plus of stacked wooden blocks on the door side, so no awning would reach the ground. It is on a hill side after all.

The grass pitches are also uneven/sloped, and avoid pitch number 25 if possible, the Oak tree the pitch is under is showing signs of severe stress, probably due to root crushing by pitch users and may well shed limbs without warning!

Though not enough toilets at times the blocks were clean as resupplied in time.

The nearest pub, The Hare and Hounds, is a short walk up through the site then the copse above, not advised for those with difficulty walking and very uneven with tree roots as additional trip hazards. You'll need to book to eat as it's very popular, with a view of the sea being on a hill top.

Approach roads are narrow in places, from all directions, and the locals take no prisoners on them.

Being out of main season for our visit most on site were older mainly retired members, so lots of loud late evening 'discussions' causing disturbance and dogs allowed to run free and foul where ever they liked both early in the morning and late at night, something the 'Club' needs to address!

Came to this site following previous reviews, wish we never came for the following reasons:

On flight path to Exeter airport, planes flying over until very late at night

Site must like making a noise from mowers going round on a daily basis, and that petrol hedge cutter making an absolute din of noise, and all you want is peace and quiet.

I have found this on most caravan club sites a continuous noise which is disturbing the peace and tranquility of places.

Noise pollution.

Our first time at this site and we really liked it, lovely woodland setting and plenty of birdlife to watch. We only stayed 2 nights and have an elderly dog so didn't venture too far. The dog walk is very good and joins the footpath up to the local pub, we had an enjoyable lunch in the garden, very popular place.

The new facility block is very good, although I did find the shower pressure quite low and my other half had one cold shower in the older block!

There is some road noise, but nothing too intrusive.

Small shop in reception sells all the basic and you can order a paper.

This site has a lovely feel to it, we will definitely return one day.

Lovely spacious site. The toilet/shower blocks were spotless, which is a big must for me. The dog walk was really good as it took you through the woods and if you kept on going it took you to the local pub, the Hare and Hounds which is brilliant. Fantastic home cooked food with a carvery on every day. Will definitely use this site again.

We chose Putts Corner as a one night stop-over on our way home from our last trip. We had stayed before but wanted to check out the brand new facilities. And we were not disappointed.

The site was very busy (it was a Saturday) but we had a small amount of pitch choices. We chose a large hardstanding in a cul-de-sac which was close to all the facilities.

The site is now barriered and so has a safe feel. Wardens were friendly and efficient. Wi-Fi wasn't working (not the sites fault but good old BT!) which didn't go down very well with the odd few! The new toilet block is great and was spotless as you would expect. There's an indoor washing up room and a laundry too. There is a second toilet/shower block at the other end of the site that has been refurbished to a very high standard too. Water points and bins dotted around the wooded site.

There's a good pub (Hare & Hounds) a short walk up through the top of the site and the small wood. 1 off each adult main meal for CC members, the wardens issue the vouchers on arrival. Nice food and a semi decent choice of real ales and cider. Again it gets very busy so booking would be advisable.

As we only had one night we didn't do much other than bike to Ottery St Mary, only 2. 5 miles from the site. BIG MISTAKE. 20% hill on the way back! LOL

Not much to do in the 'local area' if you're a motorhomer but OK if you have a car, not that it bothered us as it was just a stop-over en-route home. Will use again for exactly that.

We were greeted by very friendly wardens at this clean and tidy site. We chose our pitch which was in the middle of the site which was quite open. The toilets/showers were clean although could do with a refurbishment. There was no washing machine in the facilities block. We had a lovely carvery at the Hare and Hounds pub which is about 5 mins walk. The bus stop is outside the Hare and Hounds where we caught the bus into Sidmouth. The wardens take orders for fish and chips twice a week, which they kindly fetch for you. This site had the strangest atmosphere - you say `hello` to fellow campers and they do not reply - not very friendly at all. Would not return to this site.
