Date of Visit: June 2008 Unit:  Tent
Reviewer: Haulfryn 5 reviews from this member

 We have just returned from a weekend at Oakdown, which we enjoyed immensely.

We were personally shown to our pitch and were shown all the key facilities en route - ie showers, washing up, playground,etc. The showers, toilets and washing up area were spotlessly clean, warm and more than adequate. I liked the fact that the radio was always on. There was a free hairdryer in the ladies which was great, however no points to plug your own in, so there could have been a queue at busy times.

The playpark was fantastic and there was also lots of room to play on the camping fields themselves. Pitches were spacious and mostly flat. Some had picnic benches. There is a path from the site to the Donkey Sanctuary (bit far for little legs though) or it's a 2 minute drive. Well worth a visit.

Sidmouth, Beer and Branscombe are beautiful but traffic would be difficult in high season in the latter two. The Masons Arms in Branscombe serves lovely food - a bit pricey for a pub but well worth it - especially the haddock and chips if you are very hungry!

Overall, we have only praise for the site - it's easy to see why it has won so many awards. One slight down side - it's next to a main road which doesn't seem too busy but seems to attract the odd boy racer. Take earplugs if traffic noise bothers you. That said, we were close to the road and it didn't spoil a wonderful stay.

 Myself and my family have stayed here every year for the last 4 years. It is a lovely site, with fantastic amenities which are kept very clean. There are plenty of showers, vanity cubicles and 2 bathrooms with a shower bath and toilet. These are ideal for families. There is also a unisex shower room.

They have washing up areas inside the amenities block, along with 2 wasing machines and tumble dryers and a spin dryer. Washing lines are available for use outside.

The playground is well kept, and safe for kids, and a small games room for the older ones.

The grounds are very well kept, split into areas. They are large enough to feel part of a community, but small enough to keep your holiday personal and private.

Opposite the site is the donkey sanctuary, which offers lovely walks, and Sidmouth is just a short drive. Lyme Regis is also close.

In all the years that we have stayed, we have experienced nothing but a first class service, excellent facilities and like minded respectful fellow campers.

They offer electric hook up, and drainage, hard standing and grass stands as well as tent pitches.

Storage is also available.

 Just been here last week-end and†cannot praise this site enough. Very well organised, very clean, very relaxing. The hubbie and I like to steer clear of the sites which have tons of kids / family†facilities as we like peace†& quiet, we found it here - i.e no pool, clubhouse etc. There is however a play area for kids but we didn't really look at it so can't comment.
Good size pitches so you aren't on top of each other. Fab!

 Spent the weekend after Easter at this site. We were very impressed by the overall standard of the facilities - everything was spotless and well maintained. Particularly liked the free communal freezer and microwave, brilliant when you don't have hook-up. We arrived late and the warden was really helpful, giving us a choice of pitch. The pitches were a decent size and pleasantly landscaped.

Some noise at night from nearby road (and donkeys!).

Great walks from the site, not far from the coast path. Its steep and close to the cliff edge in places, so maybe not suited to younger children.

 This site was fantastic in every way... clean, safe, and child friendly.
All the staff were very friendly and very helpful. All the facilities were immaculate and all the little extras went a long way to making a great stay even better. The storage facilities were also fantastic. We would highly reccomend this site.

Reviewer: Jo B 1 review from this member

 We camped at this fantastic site in our tent, without making use of the hook up points, a thing that we regretted afterwards, however. The excellent facilities consisted of showers and toilets that were cleaned twice daily, hot water on tap for washing and washing up, comercial sized washing machines at an extra very reasonable cost of £2.40 per wash, the driers however could have done with a slightly longer drying cycle.

The surrounding area is full of so many things to visit that we only managed a fraction of what was available in the 5 days that we were there.We hope to return to the site again as soon as possible. Will also be reccommending it to friends and family.

A great site, immaculately maintained. Loads of space, even at peak times. Good central amenity block with spotless facilities. Plenty of hot water for showers and washing up. We really appreciate the extras - freezer, microwave, free local paper, low-level lighting around site at night, and CCTV for security. They well deserve all their awards. We'll be back!

Brilliant site! Extremely well kept with very friendly and helpful staff. Nicely landscaped with well defined pitches. Spotlessly clean amenity block including not only gents and ladies toilet and shower areas but also a unisex area which is great as I have 3 sons who still need some supervision. Free showers and hair driers. Bathrooms for £1.00 - great for young children who don't like showers. Washing up areas have draining racks. There is free use of a microwave and freezer. Washing machines, driers and laundry handwashing facilities including spin drier and irons and rotary clothes lines. Pleasant play area for children plus TV/games/reading room. Very relaxed and friendly feel to the site. Very quiet at night. 

Reviewer: IanF

Some of the tent pitches are seperated by hedges, the toilets are very good. Its obvious that the owners have put a lot of thought into the place, its very nice. One of the good things about Oakdown is its location next to the donkey sanctuary. I wasn't really interested in this until we went. Its marvelous, there's an excellent walk from the campsite through fields of donkeys (you are separated by fences but they all wonder over for a fuss) to the sanctuary. My kids loved it, you do get the odd eeh-oorh but the donkey walk has an odd kind of magic about it.
