 Went back to parkers for the second time, this park is fantastic! Has a lovely bar and restaurant and the prices are very reasonable. The park is kept very clean and tidy and the wardens are the nicest people you will ever meet. The views are fantastic. There is a bit of road noise from the A38 during the day but at night you cannot hear it. The only whinge I have is they shut the bar at 10 o'clock, just when you are starting to enjoy yourself, shame that! Other than that I cannot find anything else to whinge about. Access is very good with no narrow lanes. Good dog walk but it is uphill to the main area, you need a good drink after that! The local take aways will deliver to reception. We are re-booking later in the season. The fully serviced super pitches are fantastic, all hard standing and awning rock pegs are easy to hammer in. Prices for parkers farm are very reasonable and not over priced. Can't wait to go back!

 Its not very often that we tend to visit the same site twice (unless its local), but we thought as we had such a fantastic stay last summer, we would go back to Parkers Farm. Opinion has not changed, what a fantastic site and the staff could not be any better, welcoming from start to finish. Once again our thanks go to the owner and his unique style of entertaining us all. We even had some people who live local that came to visit and they were impressed. We will be back, unfortunately not this year but who knows, perhaps 2 weeks next summer. Can't wait already. Believe me if I could score this site higher than 10/10 I would and that goes for the whole family.

 We used this as a stop over for the night of our road trip.

It had everything we needed, fantastic pub serving reasonably priced meals, clean toilet/shower block with nice views.

The only slight negative is it is on a steep hill however from what I seen everything was accommodated for such as shop, plenty of play area's for children, farm animals, very dog friendly and very very friendly owners.

Thanks for a lovely stay and I would definitely return/recommend.

 Spent another week at Parkers this year and once again it was brilliant. We take our two dogs and love it! The site is delightful with excellent views.

People are friendly and the little piggies are gorgeous. The caravan was very clean, which it always is; we tend to choose the same van because it suits us.

Access to the site is excellent and you can pop into Ashburton in a flash - already looking forward to next year!

 What more can we say apart from WOW!

This site is fantastic, plenty for the kids to do including feeding animals, farm walk and tractor rides. Play parks dotted all over the site and in the evenings fun entertainment for kids and adults alike Thanks to Gary who made everything so much fun.

On arrival staff could not have been more helpful and friendly and shown to pitch. This is one of those sites where you don't mind the kids going off on their own as there is always a member of staff around the site somewhere.

Food in the bar area was good and not bad value at all. Toilet blocks were always clean and never had to queue. We will be visiting again next year and would recommend this site to anyone and everyone. We could not fault the site in any way. Brilliant!

 We visit parker every year and have done for the past 6 year!

The staff are friendly and all things are clean.

Brilliant things for kids to see and do.

Dogs welcomed

This really is a fab place to stay, we do 2 weeks every august and I would go more if I could!

My children love the tractor ride and farm walks and we love the views and piece and quiet!

I will keep returning every year whilst the park is that good and that value for money!

 We just returned from a week here and what a fantastic site! We had spent the week before at another site which charged more than Parker's and I really think we saved the best till last.

The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble for them. There is a well stocked shop in reception, an ice pack freezer, a brilliant laundry facility and immaculate toilet and shower facilities.

The site is so family friendly - there are play areas dotted about the site, about 5 I think, so wherever you pitch your children can play within site.

There are alpacas, ponies, cows, sheep, pigs and a petting area - again these are spread out so wherever you pitch you are never too far from the animals. The day we arrived there was a farm walk which is run by the most friendly farmer you will ever meet! He was fantastic with the kids making sure none of them missed out on helping feed the animals.

There is a bar and restaurant on site which is reasonably priced and offers good traditional family friendly activities. It is not the sort of place where you will encounter anti social drinking as is very family orientated.

We were on the h field - non electric and the pitches were huge!

The site is very well maintained - nice short grass and we often saw the gardeners out and about trimming hedges etc.

Yes the A38 is there so take ear plugs but transport links are Fab.

We will go back to Parker's it really has everything going for it and we met people who have been going for years.

 Fantastic site. Great facilities, very clean and very friendly helpful staff. The family bathroom was good and always clean. Never had to queue for a shower.

My 4 year old loved the 2 different play areas, trampolines and tractors. The farm animal walk and tractor ride are brilliant and free.

The dog walk and field is lovely with fantastic views.

Bar and restaurant on site very good. Reasonably priced and good food. Dogs welcome in one area too.

We had a pitch on the hillside and the views are spectacular.

Yes there is some noise from A38 but it didn't bother us at all. Made it easy to get around

Would recommend Goodrington Sands if you want a beach for kids to play on but want to take the dog. Lovely beach with lots of beach huts along the shore.

Lovely site. As we left we booked to go again next year!

 Returned just yesterday from Parkers. I just feel I have to shout out how fantastic this campsite is!

We were perched up on row G amazing views! only a short walk downhill to the immaculately kept toilets!

Read other peoples reviews about the A38, we had no problems at all, infact I'd say it was an asset, perfect for easy connections to all of South Devons fantastic day outs beaches etc! And we also enjoyed watching traffic going back and forth.

Parkers benefited from a large launderette 3 for a wash and 2 for a tumble-dry I think this is very reasonable!

Bar/restaurant and games room also on site staff made you feel extremely welcome, nightly entertainment always a great laugh! Cant say what restaurant was like as we didn't use it but friends said it was OK and that the jacket spuds were huge!

Parkers is still a busy working farm you get the odd farm smell and the odd noise which all adds to its charm :-) the site is extremely well kept with flowers blooming everywhere beautiful! a must is the farm walk. Where you get the chance to meet the animals and go on a tractor ride! all free of charge!

I really do hope to return again!

Had an amazing 2 weeks!

Must also add children's play areas and trampolines placed round site also brand new sports field!

 Enjoyed a 5 night stay at this site and had a really lovely time (the good weather was a bonus).

The welcome on arrival was warm and friendly and we were shown to our pitch, we pitched our tent to make the most of the beautiful views of the Devonshire countryside. The main road was close by but we were never bothered by the noise of traffic, in our view being so close to the A38 made it more central to getting out and about. This site is well positioned for visiting so many interesting places around the area, Haldon Forest Park is nearby and well worth a visit.

There are 2 shower/toilet blocks on site, in the block we were closest to there were 3 toilets and 3 showers and family/disabled facilities also available, although the campsite was quite busy being the first week of the school hols I never encountered any queuing so not a problem. Lots of hot water available, washing up facilities were good as were the laundry facilities.

There was plenty of entertainment on site, a good play area, tractor rides and various activities for the children, a bar/restaurant and evening entertainment for adults. The shop, although small, sold essentials.

All in all a lovely campsite! would recommend a visit and will probably visit again in the future.
