Reviewer: Carolbay 11 reviews from this member

We have just spent six days at this site and it is everything that previous reviewers have said. It was pouring with rain when we arrived and we were shown to our pitch by Paul who made very clear arm movements to assist us to get our van correctly sited.
The toilet block was immaculate every time I visited it, plenty of paper in cubicles and soap provided at the basins.The showers (good temperature controlled hot water)were housed in a spacious double cubicle making a separate area for hanging clothing and a bench seat. A good idea was that there was a squeezy mop and a printed suggestion to use it after your shower so that it was dry for the next person.
We noticed that the grass was mown after a caravan etc left so the site always looked immaculate. The shop covered all the things you may need including camping accessories and you could order daily papers and cakes and bread. We used the park and ride and found it to run every 20 mins and saved all the hassle of parking in Dartmouth (and it was, we tried it. It was quiet at night.
The only slight downside was, as mentioned previously, the gusts of wind. It was very windy the week we were there and weather warnings were issued. The gusts were very strong but no-one / nothing got damaged. We would certainly stay on this site again.

Could be our last visit for a while as caravan is up for sale. Little Cotton has been a benchmark for all other sites since we first visited 3yrs ago. Grounds and pitches are immaculate, Paul (owner) is very helpful and friendly. Showers and loos are so clean and tidy - just like home (on a really good day!).

Prices also reasonable - what more can I say.

We have just returned from this beautiful site. As other reviewers have said the site is very very clean and well maintained. The owners were very friendly and helpful. We were given a choice of pitch and when we realised that our electric hookup wouldn't reach the owners loaned us an extension free of charge.
We were lucky enough to have fantastic weather and the owner could be seen maintaining the site throughout the day. The site has excellent shower and dishwashing facilities. The on site shop stocked a selection of essentials as well as bottled gas. Within 5 minutes walking distance is a Lidl supermarket and Spa / Petrol Station, a Sainsburys Supermarket is in the process of being built which will give campers even more choices. The local park and ride is well worth using as trying to park in Dartmouth can be very difficult.
The dog walking area is one of the best I have seen and there is an additional walk along side the local sportsfield which is accessed through the park and ride entrance gate.
The only downsides to this site is that it is very exposed and on couple of nights it was extremly windy, and from speaking to people who visit this site regularly it is very common problem, one couple lost their caravan awning, some tent campers left early as they couldn't cope with the gusts of wind that sweep across the fields.
A local pub would have been a bonus as the only pubs are in the town, which although is only ten minutes on the park ride still feels a distance, especially if you want to walk to the pub to sit outside and a drink before walking back to the camp, as the site is at the top of a very, very steep and long hill.

The river cruise in Dartmouth is well worth the money as the commentary is both informative and amusing.

I would recommend this site to anyone but do be aware of the the fact that it is exposed and does not have any secluded areas in which to pitch.

Spent 2 weeks at little cotton early October. Fantastic holiday, Site very well maintained, with excellent washrooms and toilets. Staff extremely helpful and friendly. (Had a battery problem and charged my battery daily while we were out for no charge). Park and ride next door with a 1 charge per day to go in and out of Dartmouth. TV good with external aerial. Loads to do in the area without having to drive. We always score sites we stay at and Little Cotton is the only one so far we have given 10 out of 10. Going back in 2008, can't wait!

Reviewer: I.Robbins 14 reviews from this member

Just back from Little Cotton and can only endorse others comments on how lovely and clean this site is, the facilities where immaculate, we took advantage of the over 50 discount and spent 7 days there, we found this site was ideal to get around without moving the motor home, the park and ride tickets bought from the site shop where 1 return for unlimited use through the day. The bus stopped right on the front at Dartmouth and there are various boat trips available,and a short walk to the lower ferry the cost to get over to Kings wear is 1. From there the No.22 bus to Brixham is 3.90 return and takes 20 minutes. There are various Bus routes around the area and time tables can be picked up from tourist info office. Dartmouth itself is a quaint town with its winding streets, it has a small market on the Friday morning.

The on site shop is stocked with necessary supplies and some frozen food and camping equipment and a section where you can exchange books if you fancy a quite afternoon reading was a nice idea, I noticed that just opposite the Park and Ride

There was a leisure centre and a new Lidl supermarket opening this month. Now that is really convenient for campers. We had a very enjoyable week here and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it, we would certainly go again.

This site is very lovingly cared for. The toilets and showers are immaculate and there are plenty, I only had to wait once and then not for long.
The shop is well stocked and there is a good Spar shop just down the road at the petrol station plus a small somerfield in Dartmouth.
The laundry and pot wash facilities are also very clean and plentiful.
Dartmouth is easily accessible using the park and ride that the camp site shop sell tickets for (parking is non-existent during the day although we found spaces in the evening)
Lots of lovely beaches within easy driving distance.
The two dog walks available are both excellent, the one provided by the camp site is a large, well fenced field with trees planted and benches so you can relax with a book while the dogs run off some energy and the other walk is next to the camp site around a sports field and is pretty & quiet and the dogs loves exploring there.
I would highly recommend this site and we will definitely be returning next year.
A tip for those who may like to take their dogs to the beach - drive to "Salcombe" use the park & ride there and then get the ferry (5 minute sail) to East Portlemouth - a gorgeous sandy, dog & child friendly beach with a fab coffee shop - if the sun shines you won't want to leave.(the dogs are welcome on the bus & the ferry)
