For a middle aged couple this lovely CL site is close to perfect. The site is very pretty and tranquil, the immaculately kept toilet, washup sinks and shower were not really expected in this type of site. The whole area is unique in that whilst very rural it's only 5 minutes from a lovely village and about ten minutes from a city, sandy beaches, castle, motorway, railway bustling tourist resorts of Dawlish warren or ferry ride to Exmouth. Or you could happily sit outside your caravan in a lovely orchard/paddock absorbing the peace and quiet. The site suffered badly from the winter wet weather and the lower part of the pitch is still quite boggy a motorhome got stuck whilst we were there but sensibly even though the site can only take 5 units there are more than double that number of hookup's to allow for pitches to be rotated lessening damage to the paddock. The price is very reasonable, but the general slope everywhere would have made setting up the awning difficult so we didn't bother with it, there is Golf club a few hundred metres walk up the lane which appears to have a restaurant and bar open to the public so too the Golf course is a pay as you go affairm we thought we saw people doing archery as well. The access lane is very narrow and steep coming from Exminster, don't believe your satnav if programming in the post code only as is sends you to an address about a mile away iin the same lane but in Exminster. In summing up it's the sort of place that I hope too many people never find.

A lovely quiet small site set in a small orchard, the main noise was from the wild geese flying overhead.

The facilities were always spotlessly clean, and the provision of a sink with hot water to do washing up was very welcome.

The hot shower is now 20p per 2 minutes, but the site itself is very reasonably priced so we figured we could still spend ages in the shower before we were paying anything like what we would have been doing at some bigger sites. Unfortunately the meter for the shower is not within the shower cubicle so make sure someone else is on hand to put money in! The shower floor was very slippery, with no handrails or chair to sit on - so take a stool/chair from your caravan if you've got one.

The Exeter area has lots of cyclepaths, but the road to the site is rather narrow and hilly. If you park your car next to the railway line near Powderham Church you can walk along the seawall to The Turf Inn the only pub with no road access (except for private deliveries) - it's about ½ hour brisk walk but the beer and food are really good.

There are strict rules about keeping dogs on a lead at all times and not a lot to do if you're a child, but if you're after a quiet well looked after site it's lovely. Usually busy during the holiday season so you really need to make sure you book in advance.

Been to this site twice now and can recommend it for peace and tranquillity.

Being CL is has space for 5 units with EHU in old orchard.

Shower and wash up facility in old barn with separate WC Nearest watering hole is the Golf Club further up the lane. No Pubs close by.

Very convenient for Exeter shopping.

Friendly owners. As this CL, not really suitable for children no play area etc but there are farm animals on land nearby.

Would recommend a visit to Exminster which has a sandy beach and long promenade.

A very nice CL based in an orchard and with very good washing facilities including a shower (20p) and electric hookups. The site is very quiet, but conveniently placed for Exeter. Nearby is Powerham Castle, which holds various events and has a very good farm shop.
From the church near Powderham you can cycle into Exeter along the river / canal side along a cycle track.
