The family and I wanted to visit Devon campsite but as we are from Kent, needed a place to stay. I called Diggerland and asked whether there was anywhere near by. They told me about the campsite at Verbeer Manor (2 minute walk from Diggerland).
Really enjoyed the stay, beautiful lakes and scenery to walk through. The kids loved it!
The campsite is on green flat ground and is clean. The toilets need a bit of work though as there are only 2 toilets, I agree there needs to be more toilets. The toilets are also quite open and I didn't feel comfortable when showering as anyone could walk in. But with all the family together and not many people camping at the time this was ok and we got to know everyone staying there which was nice.
Overall though we had a brilliant time and Diggerland Devon was brilliant!
As a late arrival and prepaid, we had no problems pitching up, infact we did not see anyone all the weekend. The approach to the site is up a dirt track full of pot holes and large bricks, not good for your caravan.
The site is very level and green, overlooking lakes and countryside which is very nice. The surroundings are clean, and access to diggerland is 2 minutes walk, with 25% discount if you mention that you are on the site. Free to come and go as you please, which was nice to go back to have lunch and top up on drinks etc. And no heavy bags to carry around.
The major let down is the toilets, a portocabin, divided into two, one side for ladies the other for gents. These consist of 2 toilets which would be inadequate should the site be full. Our stay was very quiet with only 2 tents and 2 vans there at the time. Also in the toilets were 2 showers only separated by a mouldy shower curtain. We would not allow our 2 lads to shower alone, as they would normally as anyone entering the toilets, could just whip open there was no security or lock. I was nervous in the shower too, as when anyone walked into the loo, a gust of wind could have blown open the shower curtain and anyone in the field could see right into the loos, as they overlooked the field. The showers were cramped, had no controls or adjustment, and flooded everytime they were used. At the back of the showers a pipe had been broken and there was muck oozing, and the elsan point was disgusting.
There is no shop on site, but a spar shop at a garage over the road stock all every day essentials, so that is not a problem.
Overall the site is ideal for diggerland visitors, lovely walks around the lakes, nice and level, unfortunately the toilets and showers really disappoints and really need looking into. The pay on the day price is definitely not worth the money, and infact we have been on much better sites for the money that we had paid.
