 A really nice site to stay at. We spent 5 nights camping there and enjoyed every one of them.

The site is dog friendly but though there were several dogs on site I wouldn't have known had I not seen them in the mornings. No dogs yapping through the night.

The staff on site were friendly and helpful and were always available for advice and information.

Although we didn't make use of the electrical hook up they were available for tents.

There's a basic play area in the middle of the campsite and a 'magical' forest walk for a nice stroll.

The facilities are modern, clean and homely. There was a small wait for the showers on some mornings but nothing to ruin your day. There's a shop on site which sells the basics and a pub with a shop attached less than 10 minutes walk in the quaint village of Knowle. The pub didn't open on Mondays while we were there, which was a little strange, but it's a nice place with good food and friendly staff. I recommend getting there for the early bird menu 18:00-19:00, excellent food and good prices.

We walked the cycle path to Exmouth which is a pleasant 2 and a bit mile trip through nice countryside. The walk to Budleigh Salterton is around 1. 5 miles.

I'd recommend this site to anyone and would happily stay there again.

 Booking the site is friendly over the phone. We had a service pitch, the last pitch they had and over the Bank Holiday weekend it was 22 per night. This was more than we would normally pay, but in our opinion value for money.

The pitches are large and the wardens excellent. The warden shows you to the pitch.

There is a central area in the middle of the site with play equipment and seems to be where all the tents are. Children can roam freely in this area and we found that noise was not a problem. There are only 3 toilets and showers for the whole site, which could be a problem when the site is full.

The small shop sells milk etc.

The site is next to the cycle path to Exmouth (excellent) and easy walk to the pub and a walk into Budleigh.

We will certainly go again and would highly recommend.

 Just returned from a week at Pooh Cottage, what a friendly site, lovely area, walking distance of coast path, there is a cycle route or footpath to Exmouth adjacent to site. Not far from bus stop which takes you through the beautiful east Devon villages of East Budleigh and Otterton. Lots of things to see and do. The wardens of Pooh Cottage are very friendly and helpful, the toilets, showers and site are kept spotlessly clean. There is a play area for the children a woodland walk with wooden bears dotted around. We will be re-visiting.

Reviewer: Trish49 1 review from this member

 This year we decided to take a seasonal pitch on Pooh Cottage, it has turned out to be the best decision we have ever made. No more touring for us.

The site is small, family owned and exceptionally well run by its on site wardens. Everything is incredibly clean and nothing is too much trouble for them. It has a small shop which you can buy your basic products such as local eggs, bread etc. There is a general grocery store in the pub which is within walking distance. Longboat cafe is great for crab sandwiches located on the beach. Ask the wardens for places to buy mussels, you can buy fresh fish on Budleigh beach from the fishermen and places like Beer as well.

Delightfully no club on site, a lovely wooden children's play area that kept our 6 and 2 year old niece and nephew interested for a long time, we had to drag them away.

Bike hire means you can drop onto the cycle track 50 yards from the site entrance. Budleigh is a 10/15 minute walk, where there are some lovely coffee bars, and beach huts to hire from the tourist information centre. All you do is turn left at bottom of Bear Lane, and immediate right, and keep turning right at junctions.

I realise there are just three showers, however Ive never queued as we take off peak showers and there are loads of loos.

Its a really quiet well located site which we truly enjoy staying on, and our family enjoy visiting us there too.

Reviewer: Kazlikesshoes 1 review from this member

 We visited Pooh Cottage just after Easter to find a quiet, extremely clean and friendly site. The wardens were lovely and very accommodating, especially when we asked if we could swap from a grass pitch to a hard standing (after looking at the forecast!)

The showers were immaculate, free and efficient, toilets as per the showers. Our hard standing had its own water tap and waste water drain.

There is a kids climbing frame with a slide in the middle of the campsite which is visible from most if not all of the pitches. Kid-friendliness would be upped if there was a couple of swings, too.

The only tiny criticism is that during busy periods, there may be a queue for the showers, but the site owners have plans to increase the shower numbers, so this shouldn't be a problem when it's finished.

We would highly recommend this site for its cleanliness, friendliness and convenient base for a stay in Devon. And very reasonably priced too!

Will definitely be back!

 What a lovely site!

We stayed for two nights over Easter and loved this campsite.

The site is very clean and well maintained, with nice touches of signs letting you know whats going on locally, fresh herbs to help yourselves to, very clean toilets and showers. Very dog friendly.

We have quite a big tent and the pitch was plenty big enough for us, level too.

We drove down to Budleigh to pick up a few bits and pieces but it was easily walkable, we did stop off in The Feathers (dog friendly) for a quick drink, the food menu looked good, there's a Co-op and Spar in town. There is also a pub in Knowle (closer than Budleigh) we didn't visit but drove past. A Tesco and Lidl can be found on the road to Exmouth.

There is a lovely walk just outside the campsite entrance which is a shared footpath / cycleway / bridlepath which is a tarmacked path through the woods to Exmouth (4 miles I think) we didn't get that far as the light was failing but it was a lovely walk, our dog loved it.

Overall a lovely site that we will be returning to!

 One of the best sites we have been too! Great management team,

Very friendly and helpful, great advise given on local area.

Toilets and showers spotless, a pleasure to use!

Great spot for walking and cycling as the old railway now a cycle route to Exmouth, which is literally begins at the entrance to the site. Our dog loved it too.

Excellent food at The Brittania pub - down the road in Knowle -


The whole site is immaculately kept.

We stayed for 3 nights, wanted to stay longer - truly brilliant! Can't praise enough. Will be back!

 I wasn't sure how long I'd spend at Pooh Cottage, and the wardens were very flexible about extending my stay. I spent a week on my own in a small tent without a car, and the wardens were very helpful, friendly, and made sure I was ok.

The facilities were excellent and clean, and included hand soap, toilet paper, hand towels, hot showers, washing-up liquid, washing-up bowls, draining racks, washing machines, dryers, and electric sockets in the laundry room.

The site is in a beautiful location. It's easy to walk into Exmouth along the cycle path, or alternatively through Knowle village and over a footpath to join the coastal path, which brings you to Exmouth beach. I also walked the coast path to Sidmouth. Perhaps the best walk though is inland to the Exe estuary through the woods and commons. Really pretty.

The pub in Knowle is traditional and the landlord keeps the beer well. The best pub I found was the Salterton in Budleigh Salterton, which is a lovely little town. The museum there is also worth a visit, and there are lots of places for ice cream, cream tea, or something hot and savoury. The fish and chip shop is excellent. Perhaps the best thing about Budleigh is the naturist beach - very handy if you've walked down without your trunks and fancy a dip.

My only regret is not finding out sooner about the Stagecoach Megarider Gold bus ticket, which would have saved me a bit of money, and enabled me to visit more places.

At 7 per person per night, my stay was excellent value.

As I only have a small tent, which isn't big enough to stand up in, I spent a lot of time outside. Lots of other campers came up and had a chat, and people were really friendly.

Many thanks for a lovely holiday.

 We have just returned from a weekend break, this was our first visit to the site. Excellent all round site. Highly recommend site. Great location in quite surroundings yet very close to the town and beach. This site was great for kids as well, with a very modern play area. Toilets very clean, showers hot and clean. We will be returning ! As this was our first visit and won't be the last

Thanks pooh cottage team!

 I have just spent a few nights at this venue and I was very impressed.

The wardens were very helpful and they are passionate about helping out where they can.

Thank you for help with tent in those windy conditions.

The venue is very close to all local shops and the beautiful beach.

A reasonable price per night.

I hope that when I return the shower block will be finished!

See you again Soon
