 Really lovely site with fantastic clean facilities, the loos are award winning!

They are all fully serviced pitches which makes life easy.

It was torrential rain to start with but beautiful sunshine after.

Each pitch is very well maintained. Staff friendly and helpful, would thorough recommend.

Fabulously located to get up on the moors or you are within 8 mile drive to Torquay and the beach.

Many attractions including steam train and zoo. So much to see in the area.

 Great site, clean facilities, good size pitches.

Just need some of the children to be more supervised by their parents. One child threw a stone and hit my car and left a lovely dent in the middle of the door and chipped the paint. Staff could not look a cctv to catch out the child.

Would I stay again, yes. Hopefully next time we don't get an unruly child near us.

 Nothing to dislike about this site.

A well kept site where the wardens mow the grass, cut the hedges and rake the gravel as soon as you leave ready for the next visitors.

The shower blokes are modern and clean with good Covid 19 rules in place.

The approach road is tight but if you take it steady it is absolutely fine.

In a really good position to explore the Torbay area and beyond. Good play area's for the children (N/A for us as mine are 27 & 29) and two good dog walks

 This is such a relaxing site - we stayed on Black Rock Copse where all the pitches are fully serviced, including chemical disposal points.

Facilities are always immaculate and a sensible approach to COVID precautions taken - the fact that the toilet and shower facilities are separate actually helps and avoids the queues we’ve found at some other sites.

Two very large dog walks are very welcome to be able to exercise the dogs without having to leave site down the narrow country lanes.

There is a pub in walking distance although we didn’t visit on this occasion.

 Immaculately kept quiet site with easy access to all local beaches /towns /dartmoor.

Great areas to walk dog, lovely play area for the children and immaculate toilet block (showers not open yet due to covid restrictions).

My only negative was the price to do a wash. £5! Well worth the visit.

Make sure you follow the site's directions to get there as the lanes are too narrow for caravans coming in from the other direction.

 We stayed at Dornafield for 7 nights. The site is very well looked after with some lovely touches such as the herb garden and the very well tended pitches.

The welcome was warm and the instructions for pitching clear. Without doubt, it is the best fully serviced pitch we have ever had, with fresh water, electric hook up, TV hook up and gray waste adjacent to the pitch. Heaven!

The showering facilities are superb. As a base for the area we think it is hard to beat, with good access to many lovely places!

The only squeaky bum time is the access road itself. As a seasoned caravanner I just go with the flow, but it could be a bit daunting for a newbie. But to get the peace and quiet it's well worth the narrowish approach.

Overall a lovely place to be and great value. BTW the covid compliance is admirable.

 Dornafield is a fantastic campsite we stayed on Blackrock Copse on a fully serviced pitch with our own waste bin.

Chemical toilet disposal unit waste water and water hook up and a tv hook up.

The shower and toilet facilities are amazing and extremely clean. The staff were very helpful and friendly.

This is well worth a visit we are going back again in September.

 This was our first time to Devon, and everything about the area is beautiful. The site is absolutely stunning. Facilities were excellent, so clean. Very clear Covid 19 instructions to campers, numerous hand sanitisers throughout the site.

The wardens are so pleasant, really jolly, very helpful, giving advice where needed, their attention to the site is a credit to them.

We were booked on to Black Copse, booked on a fully serviced pitch, close to all amenities, including the dog field, which was perfect for our dog.

When we arrived at the pitch, we realised that the drain/ tap/ electricity was in the middle of the two caravans, our connections were on the opposite side of our caravan, our drain pipe was not long enough to connect up, and yes, we had left our waste master at home. It was suggested by other campers to park hitch in, but that would have meant we would have no view, other than looking at the privets. Thankfully our neighbour very kindly lent us their waste master for the week, due to not needing this themselves as they were on the correct side to hook up.

As expected the roads are very narrow, thankfully we didn't face problems when towing in or out of the site, although very nail biting.

The site shop had ample provisions including fresh bread etc, although there were supermarkets in close proximity.

There were numerous places to visit, Torquay, Plymouth, Stoke Gabriel to name a few. All definitely worth visiting!

 Excellent site - very well kept. Toilets and showers also excellent. We were on a fully serviced pitch. Pitch number 61. We shared a rubbish bin and chemical emptying point with one other pitch. We had our own fresh water supply and waste disposal drain. Nice little shop.

Fish and chips twice a week, morris dancing one evening and the staff organised a “wear pink” day to raise money for Breast cancer.

Very helpful staff. I asked about the site and it’s history and one of ladies printed out two sheet information for me. I even asked for a recipe for cheese straws that were being sold on the “wear pink” day and a day after we left, the manager emailed it to us!

Highly recommend this site - only slight draw back is that the narrow single lane road leading to the site is just over half a mile from the main road which was too far for me to walk (we have a motorhome). We hired a car from Enterprise for three days which worked out very well for us. We visited National Trust properties, Dartmouth, Teignmouth and Dartmoor.
