We stayed just the one night here, at 21 for 2 adults+motorhome incl EHU. On a hard standing. An easy place to find and clean and tidy with freshly mown lawns. We visited the NT Killerteon which is close by and also found some good walks starting close to the site. A pleasant stay all in all, we didn't really use the provided facilities though they looked pretty good.

Arrived to no owner in sight, the only message was to ring their mobile numbers. Tried this but no answer on either and very poor signal. Decided to find our own pitch. Half way through setting up the people opposite informed us there was no electric! Tried the owners again and finally got a flippant response. The power was on and off for most of the evening. Owner did come and check on us the following morning.

The shower block was freezing and not what we expected from an open all year site in February plus the water pressure is very low so you have to stand very close to the wall in order to shower. The toilet cubicles are so small you nearly impale yourself on the coat hook on back of door when you stand up. The toilet block is only cleaned once a week, but maybe that's not an issue out of season?

The chemical waste and waste water facilities are poor to say the least having to lift the full waste container into the air to empty!

Would not say that for 42 for a weekend this was value for money at all and not even offered a discount due to lack of power on first evening.

This is a very basic site and a bit run down but it is very quiet.

TV signal is good, phone is very poor and no wifi available.

This site is fantastic if you like peace and quiet. I have read previous reviews and agree the speed humps are a little high, I scraped the jockey wheel of my caravan on entry, however, my car is a wheelchair accessible vehicle and with my wife's chair in the back is quite low and had no problems. The owners also have low cars and I saw them drive over the humps with no problem, so, those who ground out it may be an indication that your suspension has had it. The toilet block was small but functional, well kept. The owners were friendly any help full. The price was excellent, as other sites in the area were charging almost double for just a field. I will definitely be back, it is hard to find a quiet, well run, friendly, family site at good prices.

What a lovely site - quiet, rural, but yet only 3 miles from Exeter. There are excellent bus connections to the city centre from the Exeter to Crediton main road which is less than a mile away, and the Newton St Cyres station has a limited rail connection and is about 30 minutes gentle walk away. Trains run fairly infrequently but not overnight - and don't worry about noise, the line is at least 2 or 3 fields away and the trains very small local units rather than noisy heavy express trains!

We received a very warm welcome from the family owners, and had a choice of several attractive, level pitches, bordered by a stream, meadows, mature trees and wild flowers - the site blends into the surrounding countryside rather than being a piece of manicured suburbia so there are 'natural hazards' such as a clear-flowing stream, wild shrubs, nettles and dock to the fringes which are all part of its charm.

As long as you respect a sensible speed to negotiate what is essentially the owners front garden, ie as slow as possible in first, the speed bumps are not a problem - the owner's BMW coupe had no problem negotiating the access route, and neither did we. We were surprised that so many people had made such a big issue about them!

The toilet block and washup area were clean and nicely maintained, and a plentiful supply of hot water was very welcome! Yes, they aren't the size of a small holiday camp, but if that's what you want you are in the wrong place - 2 WCs and 2 showers in men's and ladies, a small laundry and 2 washup sinks should be more than adequate for most camper's expectations.

Overall a truly charming place from which to escape the normal routine, peaceful yet well connected, with excellent access to all that this lovely area has to offer. We will definitely be back whenever we are near Exeter.

We stayed here on our first caravan outing for nearly 20 years ! Having bought a caravan rather rashly on e-bay and spending large to get it roadworthy and safe, we were keen to test it. We didn't want to go too far and Exeter was a distance we felt safe with from our base at Minehead. We studied the UKCampsite.co.uk database and quickly found Langford Bridge which sounded fairly small and friendly with good facilities. Ideal for these silver haired explorers. Our phone call was answered in a very friendly and positive manner and we immediately warmed to this location.

Booking was simple and we arrived to find a choice of hardstandings, allowing us to practice some caravan parking capers, and settle in. The electric hook ups are plentiful and in good condition. There were stand pipes dotted around and all placements are within easy trotting distance to the Facilities Block. Here we found 2 toilets and 2 showers in each Male and Female area. Plenty of free hot water and everything working well. There was also a covered washing up area, again with plenty of hot water and a room with a washing machine, large sink and shelving with local touring brochures and small library.

The site has a lively stream running through and a large pond with ducks. This may be a point of caution for families with very young children, they will need careful management when outside. There are swings and some biggish cages with interesting rabbits. We were very happy to be there and were made very welcome by the owners representative.

It was clear that great effort was put into keeping facilities clean in a busy period with some rainy weather and muddy shoes. Exeter is a short drive away and we enjoyed the shopping and dining opportunities. Interesting to see a very large John Lewis Store nearing completion! Also a nice Waitrose close by (our favourite) On future visits we plan to explore more of Exeter and then go a little further to the coast at Dawlish and Exmouth (many other good resorts in easy striking distance)

We also found a lovely spot nearby at Bickleigh, with a large riverside pub (almost irrisistable on a sunny day) a Mill and the Devon Railway Centre. A few miles on lies Tiverton and Exmoor. In conclusion, this is a friendly, well managed, reasonably priced, site with a fantastic array of leisure opportunities within easy reach.

Reviewer: Debi Riley 2 reviews from this member

We visited this site over 3 nights with a group of friends, in all there was about 10 tents in our group and only a couple of other tents and caravans in the campsite. On arrival our car got stuck on both the speed bumps and trying to drive off of them scraped the underside of our car quite drastically. I have read other reviews that also state this so this is an issue that needs to be resolved.

The site has a small unfenced lake in one corner and a stream on either side of the field. There was a climbing frame which the children immediately started playing on when we arrived only to be told by the owner that it wasn't safe and could collapse at any minute. There was no sign to this effect and no tape to cordon it off. About an hour later it was fixed and the children resumed their play on it.

The ground was flat and well grassed and although there were power points, the actual pitches were not defined so we basically just pitched out tents where we wanted to.

Around the field border itself were hundreds of stinging nettles so make sure you take cream for stings! By the way there are also lots of dock leaves! There is a train track a few hundred yards away and trains were running through the night when we were there, the first night it kept me awake, but the following two nights I slept through them!

The shower and toilet block caused a bit of a sticking point with me as we have camped in various sites over the last 10 years and so I feel I am justified in saying that this is perhaps one of the smallest shower blocks I have ever come across. There are only two toilets in both the womens and mens blocks, and when you are inside the cubicle there is practically no room to move, and your knees are nearly touching the door when you are sitting on the loo. This makes in particularly difficult - in fact I would say impossible - for you to take a child in there with you. Opposite the two toilets are two showers - open apart from a shower curtain each. No thought seems to have gone into this design as once you step out of the shower, you are not only right in front of the loos but are basically in full view of the door to the block and if other people are coming in and out it means everyone outside can see you! There is nowhere to dry apart from inside the shower once the water stops. The only place to dress is next to the 2 sinks - which happen to be behind the door, so if you are dressing there people can not get to the sinks and people will still be able to see you through the door window! Yes the door has a window, and although it is frosted one man walked so close to it that I was able to recognise him as one of our group. The toilet/shower block only seemed to be cleaned once a day - there was one occassion when one toilet had no loo paper in and the paper towel dispenser had run out. When there are 15+ women and 18 children on site the blocks need to be cleaned more regularly or perhaps leaving a mop in there is a good solution so people can mop the floor when they have had a shower. Certainly when I was there the floor was dirty with wet tissues, hair etc and whilst there I only had one shower, simply because the facilities were not up to scratch.

Having said all that the owners were friendly and the site was quiet and we had a nice few days there but I wouldn't stay there again on the basis of the shower block and the unfenced lake.
