 Excellent site, easy to move around site, facilities were spotless from toilets and washrooms to pools and restaurants.

Plenty of space to pitch tents and park vehicle easily, also plenty of visitor parking if required.

Children's play areas exceptionally well maintained and kids loved them especially the bike track lots of fun.

Staff very friendly and more than happy to help with any query of request for information certainly get what you pay for great site.

 Whatís not to like about this site especially at ACSI card rate of £19pn of peak in May ? Site was quite busy & filled up at the weekend but not overcrowded with plenty of pitches available.

Most pitches are well kept grass but there are plenty of fully serviced hard standing pitches as well. Site is huge. Staff are friendly & helpful.

When you arrive you are taken to a pitch but if you donít like it the operative will find you another. Choose carefully as most are on some degree of a slant so bring levelling blocks.

There are several amenity blocks all of which are modern with plenty of hot water. They are in fact excellent & kept clean.

There are pools & a nice cafe & pub so worth a visit. Area is nice but parking in the nearby towns is expensive. We will be back but only at off peak times.

Reviewer: Silver Plated Spork 27 reviews from this member

 Big site, but pitches well spaced out and 6 amenity blocks spread throughout. The grass pitches are large, and whilst they have terraced the site well, you may need levelling blocks. We were on the 12 acre field which suited us well, as it was one of the furthest away from the main entertainment.

We did use the on site pub-restaurant, fish and chip shop and pizza takeaway, and there was a good choice, reasonably priced. The well stocked shop was also useful for milk etc, and a Sainsburys for fuel and food just 5 minutes away towards Dawlish Warren.

We also used the inside pool, which has to be booked and costs extra. We used an adult session, so it was relatively quiet and the sauna and steam room were included. The outdoor pool was not open, and there are also fishing lakes and a treetop trail as well as evening entertainment should you want it. Also available is a great bike/ scooter track and sports court- these seemed very popular.

The facilities are spotless and cleaned/checked about 3x daily. Try out different showers though, as some press buttons lasted 3 seconds and others 30 seconds. The site was jam packed over the Easter weekend and I saw some queuing for showers but they seemed to cope with a full site. There is also covered washing up, laundry (paid for with card- no fumbling for coins and washing detergent included) as well as a dog wash. Reception were always helpful.

From the site, it's a 20 minute walk to Dawlish Warren through their own woods (be warned, it might be longer on the return as it's uphill). This is a lovely walk and saves the hassle of parking at Dawlish Warren. We also caught the train from Dawlish Warren a few times, which is an amazing journey past the coast.

We visited Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Exeter, Sidmouth, Dartmoor and Exmouth from the site, so it is well placed for many activities. We visited at Easter, and the site was well priced for £36/night (2a +2c) but I think it is a lot more during the summer with the outdoor pool open.

 As an AA five pennant site your expectations should be high and you will not be disappointed.

A very friendly reception on arrival, followed by an escorted trip to your pitch.

Personal hygiene facilities are very good in centralised blocks.

The refreshment/entertainment ares are very nice as is the pool and leisure facilities.

A very nice site

 Love this place so much, itís become a regular place to stay.

I have a lung problem and find their indoor swimming pool to be the best ever as they use UV light to clean the pool. I canít go anywhere near a swimming pool that uses chlorine as it makes me choke with the fumes and I struggle to breathe, so Cofton is just great for me and fish and chips are decent too!

Great site, weíll be back.

Reviewer: Deligh 1 review from this member

 The site was very nice but we cudnt get into the entertainment at all as fully booked and we only got to spend a 45min slot in the swimming pool as that was fully booked to. The toilets near the barn smelt of sewer.

The pictures you look at look like your near beach but it's further than you think.

I would only stay there again if you didn't have to book to swim and see entertainment.

The security was brill thou when I coundn't find my grandson

Reviewer: Billy 31 reviews from this member

 We stayed here mostly because it was the only site in the area taking the ACSI discount card. This reduced price to a bargain £15. 50. Normally around £28pn in June off peak.

Site is in a valley with the pitches on terraces & you need to choose as carefully as some pitches can as some slant excessively in sometimes 2 directions. Whatever pitch you choose you will almost certainly need levelling blocks.

Good quality grass pitches with plenty of hard standing pitches available as well.

The site is massive with literally 100s of pitches as well as mobile homes. After booking in you will be led to your pitch by staff member in an electric buggy. If you do not like pitch say so & they will let you choose another as we did as first offer was too downhill.

Aspect of most pitches are good though with views over the site & mostly sunny. Despite off peak week in June site was quite full probably 80% occupancy most of the time.

Site is so big you can walk a good distance without leaving. Dawlish Warren is a long walk through the wood but worth the effort. Very crowded holiday area with expensive parking in nearby towns like Teignmouth & Torquay. There is a Sainsburyís supermarket quite near though.

A good site though if you are ok with large & busy family site. There is a pool & restaurant & plenty of large toilet/shower blocks that are cleaned regularly. Staff are plentiful & are friendly & helpful.

We would be happy to visit again.
