 You get a warm welcome on arrival. We are a retired couple with daughter, have visited this site before and found it to be very friendly and welcoming, spotlessly clean.

Granddaughter and her husband and two small children have their own caravan on the site and go there several times, itís perfectly safe for children.

Itís a very calming relaxing and restful site and would easily recommend it to anyone. It is also dog friendly. Easily accessible to Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth and also Sidmouth. There is a Tescoís supermarket and Lidl and McDonaldís just a short distance away.

The shower block and toilets are easily accessible and spotless. Washing up and laundry facilities are also on site. Excellent.

 Well run and very friendly site.

Owner was very accommodating to us when we cancelled due Storm Alex, and stayed a couple of weeks later.

Amazing shower facilities with shower sink and toilet and heated flooring.

One way system in place for Covid. 20 min walk to town and beach. Cycling and walking opportunities from campsite.

Will definitely be back.

 We received a very warm welcome and were given a full run down on the amenities, then shown to our pitch which had hard standing and was fully serviced, also a lovely view.

The site was immaculate, the showers and toilets superb and full marks to the cleaner.

The site is within easy walking/cycling distance of Budleigh Salterton and the beach, there is a cycle/walking path close by and a supermarket a short drive away.

We would certainly stay there again.

 Great campsite with an amazing park owner, he was so friendly, helpful and accommodating, the location is perfect and facilities were brilliant,

We stayed in the bottom field and it was so quiet at night, we would definitely stay here again and will recommend it to our friends.

Reviewer: John+judy 109 reviews from this member

 This immaculate site far exceeded our expectations, given some of the less-than-glowing previous reports. (that I can't understand) The facilities are superb, the integrated bathrooms would not be out of place in top-class hotels.

The site is quite large and mostly dedicated to seasonal clients, but the area we were in had a few hardstanding pitches available for tourers and we did not feel crowded and certainly not regimented.

Having a fully serviced pitch is the way all sites should be going, in our opinion - not having to trail fresh and grey water around makes life so comfortable

Lee and other members of staff were exceptionally friendly, even re-arranging pitches when we stayed an extra night so we didn't have to move pitch.

We were not familiar with this part of Devon and feel it is under-rated and neglected by tourists zooming past to places further west. We thought Budleigh was a very pleasant and well kept little town, exceeded only by Sidmouth a few miles along the coast.

The cliff-top scenery between the two, and east of Sidmouth, is stunning and I really don't want to mention Ladram Bay in a case it becomes too popular.

We also had a brilliant day cycling from Exmouth to the Quays in Exeter - an undemanding ride mostly off-road through the pretty village of Topsham.

Another outing was to the NT property A La Ronde, just a few mles away. If you go to a lot of NT properties as we do you may begin to experience stately-home fatigue, but A La Ronde is very distinctive and memorable.

We often call at NT places with our caravan when en-route, but would not recommend doing this here - the car-park is not suitable.

Overall we had a great time at Pooh Cottage and this little corner of Devon, and will undoubtedly be back some day.

Reviewer: Minimoos 27 reviews from this member

 Good size v tidy pitch ( see below) and shower/ toilet facilities of high standard, clean & liked bathroom style layout (plus additional toilets), cycle track immediately outside site and walking distance to village - recommend Marcos Italian, Budleigh riding school and redwing restaurant.

Lots of places to visit around site - donkey sanctuary, Exeter, beaches. We had poor weather which meant that the seasonal pitchers were not on site and the campsite felt quite empty because of the high no (majority) of seasonals therefore lacked atmosphere although the day we left a few did turn up.

The set up is slightly regimented with caravans and awnings facing one direction and cars parked in specific spot only - on the pitch outside of the awning (fire regs apparently) - using up most of the large grassy area of the pitch.

I personally donít like looking out onto the car or eating next to it. We were met shortly after arriving and given lots of advice re how to park & walk dogs off the site, weather and places to visit which was delivered in a friendly way.

Reception not open often as itís a one man show.

 Excellent facilities and kept immaculately clean. Toilets in shower rooms level hood sized pitches.

Brilliant location to walk into Budleigh Salterton or Exmouth for those wanting more or a hike. Convenient bus stop locations. Hand pub serving food and good beer just a short walk away.

Lee couldn't be more helpful when we arrived and set up, also with directions for walks.

Sunday to Sunday stay.

No hesitation to recommend Pooh Cottage as a friendly site with great facilities.

We did have great weather which makes a very pretty site look even more beautiful.

 Well maintained site with a warm welcome on arrival. There are several sited caravans on site which meant there were only few touring pitches available, all next to the childrenís play area so not very peaceful.

Facilities were spotless with several family rooms containing shower, toilet and shower.

The local pub is around 5-10 mins walk away with a sunny beer garden and a warm welcome. The walk into town takes around 20 mins through a residential area down to the shops and through to the beach.

 Weíve only ever visited Budleigh Salterton once before for a fleeting visiting and wanted to spend some more time here. Looking at the reviews on UKcampsite, Pooh cottage caught my eye, being reasonably close and what a gem of a site it turned out to be.

There are some narrow roads to navigate en-route to site for the last couple of miles but itís worth the effort. Final access to site is just a short drive along a country lane. First impression is well looked after and small compact site. Reception can be found at the top of site. Friendly welcome from the site warden who was happy to answer all questions.

If the shower block was in a hotel it could easily classed as four star. The block has rooms which are self-contained with a shower, basin and toilet and under-floor heating. The rooms were always spotlessly clean. And a major plus for me, not a push button tap anywhere.

All pitches are hardstanding and serviced, separated by a grassed area. Paid Wi-Fi is available. Strong EE phone signal.

When I site we like to leave our van on site and walk to places of interest. From site we were able to walk to Budleigh approximately 20 minutes away. Exmouth is roughly six miles away and can be reached by walking along the old railway line which is now part of the cycle path network. This route is just outside the site entrance. For those who prefer not to walk or cycle there is a bus stop not too far from site.

Whilst there is not a shop on site the local village and pub are only a 10 minute walk away and Budleigh Salterton has a couple of small supermarkets and some lovely cafes.

We found this site to be very affordable at £21 per night and of a high standard and we would be very happy to visit again. The site has a lot of seasonal caravans many of which were unused during out stay which meant less touring pitches are available so probably a good idea to book in advance to guarantee a pitch.
