Overall this is a good campsite. The shower block is amazing, beautifully clean, fresh and modern and the piped Smooth Radio music is cool. The staff on-site were always helpful and friendly. We stayed in July and the facilities were never busy. The on-site shop is handy when it's open, but 4 pints of milk costs twice the price of the local supermarket! and so on.

They advertise two lakes on their website. When we stayed, the lower fishing lake (on the site) was out of service, one member of staff said it was because there was livestock in the field another said it was because of weed! Whatever.

The upper lake (not on the site) about 1/2 a mile down the road is a real hidden gem. My fishing mate Dave and I had numerous good carp to about 15lbs and dozens of roach. Watch out with the gate and drive very carefully in the tractor ruts. It's a lovely pond and not publicised enough on the website. Well worth a day's fishing. It's not overfished like your local commercial and the bailiff is a nice and knowledgable guy.

Minor gripe - the small roads and hardstandings are made from a small grey gravelly stone. Everything, car, caravan, dog, Cadac gets covered in the grey dust, nightmare.

We did really enjoy our stay and would stay here again, but it was too hot many times lol.

We came here as virgin caravanners and don't have a bad thing to say about the staff and site.

Toilet and washing facilities are clean and modern - clearly well looked after

The staff were incredible! We told them we were knew to caravanning and they helped us get on a flat pitch and lent us additional hook up leads (whilst trashing me about the length and girth of the one I had!). They could not have done more to help us. Always friendly towards my wife and I and our six year old boy.

Outdoor swimming pool is a huge plus!

On site shop isn't hugely over-priced (which I think most campsites shops are), and a dozen free range eggs from the farm were only 2. 50.

All of this on a very sunny bank holiday weekend.

We will definitely be returning, and would like to take this opportunity to thank everybody who helped make our stay such fun.

Spent 1 week here and won't be returning. Even though we had reserved pitch 77 at the site, it was situated next to the rally field which was really noisy way into the night with people who seemed to turn up whenever and however. Don't go thinking by looking at the site map on the website that there is a nice hedgerow to give you privacy, its only about 1 metre high. Site is expanding to the north so was woken up a couple of morning to a JCB digging trenches - didn't get told about it by the inconsiderate staff. Pool was small and really only catered for 10-15 people max. Drinking water pipe and cut through was next to our pitch (again not shown on map) which meant that people cut across our pitch to get access which started to piss me off after a while. Staff - also didn't tell us on booking that there was a 10 deposit for the site barrier (which gets locked from 12pm to 6am). Washing machine = 4 per wash. Location wasn't that great with decent beach at Dawlish Warren about 20 minutes away. I know I sound grumpy but I DO give credit where it is due and didn't think it was due here :)

Stayed at twelve Oaks for 7 nights, Site was immaculate and beautifully laid out, owners were very helpful and friendly from the moment we arrived. Warm pool looked very clean and well kept but didn't get round to using it. Shower and toilet block was immaculate and have never found one as good anywhere. Shop was well stocked with all necessities even home produced meat. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and visit again.

Really good facilities, very clean and warm toilet and shower block. Small shop on site for essentials. Friendly and helpful staff. We were on the summer camping field which was a bit of a free for all and hunt for an electric hook up situation. All the pitches are on a slope throughout the site, ok if you're in a caravan, not so great in a tent. We didn't get chance to use the outdoor pool as it's quite small and was always busy. The kids used the playground but soon got bored as it's not very big, kept them occupied for a bit though. We enjoyed our stay but won't be returning or recommending to campers. Good location for activities and places to visit in surrounding area.

First impressions. Nice.

Easy to ring and we'll signposted.

Check in quick and easy.

Pitch. Not very happy at all! I booked a grass pitch and granted got a grass pitch with electric but was not expecting to be on a ski slopesque rally field. We are seasoned to rallies but one of the reasons we booked this site was because we didn't want to go on a rally. Rally fields are at most 15 with electric. This was more than double that! The electric wasn't per pitch either, it was by way of junction boxes in the middle of the field for all and sundry. Electric cables running everywhere!

Advised our pitch was number xx but it was in fact free for all once on the field!

This should have been detailed as a possibility on website as we would have booked elsewhere should we have known.

No respect at all for fire regulations too. Some units were pitched far too close together that any break out of fire would have spread like wildfire.

Facilities/showers. Clean, tidy and modern. Not really enough showers for the size of the site but that is what it is.

Shop not as expected. Was expecting a farm style shop. Certainly didn't expect the majority of the beef offering to be in a freezer. Very expensive too. Milk/bread essentials were twice the price of the supermarket.

Swimming pool/kids play area was good.

Farm animals. Was unsure if that part was private or not so never ventured down there. This could have been better promoted.

Wi-Fi. Very unhappy! Bought a weeks pass and after a day or two trying to connect I went to reception. I felt like I was asking them for the earth and was met with not our problem, call the number on the leaflet. Guess what. I am your customer and you sold me the card, so it is your problem! Still called. I was talked through connecting, which worked when near reception but completely disappeared on the rally field. I was also told that Samsung devices have problems connecting. Well you could've told me that when I enquired about the card!

Felt royally ripped off when we left. We are part of a camping group who had a rally in the area, with electric, but we chose to be on a 'proper grass pitch. Could be saved over 100 going to the rally instead and would've actually been on a flatter pitch!
