 Sadly, all facilities were still closed due to covid restrictions so I'm unable to comment on those.

The site was very clean and well kept, it is tucked away in a quiet location, you would never know you were so close to the busy hub of Plymouth.

 First class caravan park. Check in was seamless and so helpful.

Shower and toilet block spotless.

Would recommend and certainly use again.

Excellent location for site seeing in Plymouth.

 Stayed for 5 nights in October during tier 1 Covid restrictions. Facilities immaculately clean and cleaned regularly with plenty of notices with Covid guidelines. There was plenty of space and site was quiet so social distancing never a problem.

Site is well located to access national cycle route 27 which takes you into Plymouth (via NT property Saltram) or up towards Tavistock and the moors.

Park and ride bus stop about 15 min walk which takes you into city centre.

Would also be very handy for overnight stop for next day ferry trip.

Lots of tourist info (paid attractions) given on arrival. But no info about cycle routes and buses which is a shame.

Wifi is available on a pay as you use basis.

Lovely staff

 We stayed here for 7 nights this was our first visit to the area.

Did use the washing machine and dryer possible the best dryer I have used.

There is a lot to see and do around the area.

 Lovely setting. Plenty of space even in the height of summer.

Very clean facilities.

Handy for supermarket, bus into Plymouth and walk up the river path and, when open the steam railway

 Lovely site, beautiful surroundings. Toilets excellent.

Good location for travelling to Plymouth by bus or bike.

On the downside, felt there was a lack of local information ie cycle paths, walking routes.

Plenty of leaflets on paid attractions but very poor local info.

 A very pleasant site with easy access from the A38 and well signposted. When arriving/leaving the site you drive through an retail site with many well known brands present (the Next store is the best we seen) but don’t be put off as the site is secluded and private.

On arrival we had a very pleasant welcome and were pre-allocated a pitch. Pitches are either grass or hard standing and have 16 amp electrics. There are ample water & waste points and a Motorhome waste & filling area by the first wash block. There are two washblocks both of adequate size for the site. There is also a small pool, restaurant, take away and bar but as we did not use them we cannot comment but they looked fine to us.

The site affords easy walkable access to a Sainsbury’s supermarket, a park&ride for Plymouth, a steam railway (Sunday only) and Saltram House NT property.

The only downside to this site is that there is no gate or security barrier which is something we think they should address. However there do not appear to be any issues as the site is very secluded.

We would quite happily stay at this campsite again when in the area.

 Lovely site, staff and facilities, nothing is too much trouble. Well maintained and clean and good sized pitches.

Facilities are well planned and plentiful. Great location for exploring the local area. Easy to use public transport and there is a supermarket within a reasonable walk if you don't wish to drive.

Will be back!

 Stayed here for one Monday night mid September. Lovely site with helpful welcoming staff. Toilets and showers clean.

However we arrived and were very disappointed to find that the Bar, takeaway and restaurant are closed on Mondays. There's no mention of this on the website so I'd planned on being able to eat there.

Certainly not good value for the night we were there.

Reviewer: Charlotte R 1 review from this member

 We had a fabulous 4 nights in our tent here - testing our ability to camp with children! The campsite is immaculately kept, spotless toilet blocks. The children's play area was nice for my 3 year old - no good for younger toddlers/babies and no swings.

Basic but nice swimming and paddling pool, a little chilly but fine once you're in! All flat pitches. Possible lack of shade in some. Loads of water points around the site. Well lit. As 'tent people' we felt a bit outnumbered by caravanners!

And there were no good paths from the camping area to the looks- fortunately people didn't complain about us trekking by their vans. Friendly and helpful staff. Shop not open at most useful times (breakfast and dinner), stocked small range of essentials. Happy for us to put our ice blocks in the ice-cream freezer.

Large Sainsburys located max 10mins away, also Lidl close by. Great location for Plymouth and SW Devon / SE Cornwall tourism.
