 This is a fantastic site. The staff greet you on arrival and take you to your spot and are extremely friendly and helpful, a handout was give with the new rules implemented due to COVID-19.

The entire site was clean and tidy.

There was a pizza van which produced freshly made pizza’s at a reasonable price (is there on Tues & Thu evening).

The wash/ toilet block was always clean and tidy and a one way system was in place.

The beach is only 10 mins walk from the site (this is a blue flag beach) with a funfair and other amenities.

I would highly recommend this place. I look forward to going back there in the future.

 Our second visit to Leadstone campsite, and once again it didn't disappoint. There were excellent measures in place to prevent the spread of Covid-19, from the regular cleaning and disinfecting of the toilet and shower blocks, to a well-planned one way system around the facility blocks.

Coronavirus aside, this is a lovely site, with large pitches (we chose electric hook up again) and plenty of water stand pipes. A ten minute walk down hill finds you in the little resort of Dawlish Warren, with its beach and usual array of seaside shops. There is also a railway station, where you can hop on a train and head into Dawlish town, or a couple of stops further takes you to Teighmouth.

The walk back up the hill to the campsite is a little more challenging, but is made more bearable by a pub half way up, where you can pop in for a drink and get your breath back!

Back at the site, there is a cute little pizza van, which serves up freshly made pizzas for a couple of hours at tea time.

All-in-all Leadstone is a fab campsite, and I would recommend it to anyone for a few days away.

 Another 1 st class stay camping at leadstone. The Covid rules were spot on and felt really safe. Thank you Andrew, Sarah and Phil and other staff for another hassle free holiday.

The site and facilities were again top notch. And even with the Covid things ran smoothly. Well done all.

See you next year all being well as this site is ideal if you love a peaceful friendly relaxing break this is the best site within the area. Already pre booked for 2021 as this little gem gets full quickly. Well done all you smashed it. Especially this year owing to the awful situation

 This campsite is PERFECT! Facilities are immaculate, and they have put every effort into social distancing measures possible.

Site is perfectly located for beach and usual seaside amusements all within walking distance.

Would highly recommend

 Well kept camp site

Toilet and shower block very well maintained. Easy reach to local beach, shops and amusements

One negative to the site is a few dogs off leads and one particular dog running free And not being stopped and making mess around other people’s tents with youngsters staying in them

 Ideal location for Dawlish Warren which is a 20 minute walk downhill. And from there you can walk along the sea wall to Dawlish in about 30 to 40 mins. We did this and got the train back. £2. 50 per person and takes less than 5 minutes. Good choice to eat at the local pub/restaurant, The Mount Pleasant, on the way down to Dawlish Warren. Dog friendly area, families welcome, good choice of food with lovely views across the bay. Ate here both nights.

The site is well laid out with large pitches with electric hook up and water. Not all pitches are level. All grass. Quieter pitches are located away from the children's play area. Good facilities with separate mens and ladies toilet blocks. Each has several toilets and one unit containing a shower, sink and toilet. There is a separate unisex shower block. Showers are 20p but there is plenty of time allocated for a shower and hairwash. Would be nice to have maybe one or two privacy cubicles for washing.

Dishwashing area and laundry facilities. Waste disposals. Pleasant staff and their office is open from 8. 30am until at least 6. 30pm. Would definitely stay here again.

 Absolutely would recommend. This site is a little oasis.

We had a 6 berth 2 bedroom tent with EHU and once up there was plenty of space to park car at the side. Nice quiet campsite with good shower / toilet facilities. 20p for 5 min electric shower was more than enough and being electric meant no danger of running out of hot water!

There is a reception on site selling the basics ( little bit dear but its only really there for emergencies) There's a Sainsbury's within 5 min drive with a petrol station which is handy. Easy walking distance to Dawlish Warren, although it is up hill on the way back and an ideal base for visiting the surrounding areas.

It's a dog friendly site and most of the pubs ( and Powderham Castle) are dog friendly too. Pitches are level and marked out and the staff on hand personally take you to your pitch.

Will definitely be going again next year

 Been to Leadstone a few times and never disappointed. Staff are always helpful and available. The facilities are always clean and well kept. Took my two kids (8 and 11) and some family and they all really loved it. The play area, though basic, kept the kids busy all day. Really easy 10 min walk into Dawlish Warren or 20 min walk to Dawlish. Pitch was really wet when arrived as it had been raining loads the previous few days but drained and dried in a few hours. Sign of a good camping field :). Will definitely be back. Just maybe a bigger shop could be helpful although there is a farm shop 5 mins walk away.

 We stayed at Leadstone Camping over the August Bank holiday week. The campsite is well laid out and the separate fields make it seem smaller and less busy which is nice.

The facilities were modern and good but not very clean. Both the toilets and showers were messy and not only at peak wash times. I don't think they were cleaned very often.

Other than that it was a nice stay. It's about a 20min walk with children to the Dawlish warren. Then about another 10mins to get to a nice bit of beach to swim and play on.

Dawlish itself is also not a very long walk away.

 We chose Leadstone for it's location and were not disappointed there as it really is a short walk to the beach. Facilities were very good, well organised and regularly monitored.

The staff at reception were friendly and helpful and the book loans were a nice touch.

A few niggles though - we were a bit disappointed that we couldn't use our own ice packs but we could understand why and the photos were clearly taken in the low season as when full, the site is really quite noisy and a bit claustrophobic. Also, we couldn't chose our own pitch and there are signs everywhere with warnings about keeping children under control - suggesting that this is a problem.

Overall, Leadstone is a good site and is very well organised. For us, however, it was too regimented and if, like us, you prefer somewhere relatively quiet (we like a bit of a buzz but not radio and music all day) with a sense of space between you and your neighbour - then this isn't the site for you.

However, if you just want somewhere with good facilities, an area for the children to play and a good proximity to the beach then Leadstone is it!
