Reviewer: Jgander 1 review from this member

My girlfriend and I stayed here for five nights recently, and were incredibly pleased with the site. The views down the valley from the top part of the site were wonderful, and the site itself was well kept. It was reasonably quiet for the duration of our stay (never more than about 12 tents), and the ability to turn up and pitch wherever you like meant that everyone had plenty of space.

The facilities were excellent and exceptionally clean, campfires were allowed (in fire pits available to borrow - bring your own wood), and the member of staff that we spoke to (I didn't catch his name) was very friendly, chilled out and helpful. Our five night stay in the middle of August only cost us 70 which we thought was very good value, and the location of the site is ideal for visiting the surrounding area - we spent days in Torquay, Brixham, Dartmouth, and Dartmoor, etc.

We particularly enjoyed the wonderful view of the stars at night, the ability to return from an evening out without any curfew for driving back to the tent, and the convenience of being able to swap defrosted freezer blocks for frozen ones at the shop each morning. A truly wonderful find, and a site that we would recommend or return to in future without any hesitation.

We had a great time staying here. The facilities are perfect for campers, shower and toilet block and a laundry. A small basic shop and a small play park for children Very welcoming and friendly owners which give you wood and a fire pit to borrow. Close to shops and amenities and surrounded by beautiful beaches just a short drive away.

We have just returned from Manor Farm, our first camping holiday since the birth of daughter just over 3 years ago. Obviously much has changed in our lives since the last time we took a tent out and we didn't really know what to expect. As it turned out we couldn't have hoped for more forgiving and accommodating site managers. Dave and Diane were the epitome of friendly, informal and 'relaxed', like everyone's favourite uncle and aunt. They pootled about the site on their quad from time to time and, at the end of every day, checked in on everyone to answer any questions. Be advised though, they are not in the office/shop very often as it is a working farm. However, they are in no hurry to take your money (not that they want much- 14 to 18 per night depending on size of unit) and delivered logs punctually.

The campsite itself is superbly maintained. I felt like I was driving on the fairway of some super-posh golf club. There aren't many level areas to pitch on, which I could imagine would be a problem for some. The shower block/washing-up area is basic but somehow only helps underline the relaxed atmosphere without spoiling it. Free hot water (VERY hot in the wash basins, a gentle trickle under the shower), loo roll provided, and washing up done to the accompaniment of farmyard clucking and mooing.

The major pros for me were the amazing views- I knew we weren't going to be able to see the sea but I didn't realise that the view across to Dartmoor would more than compensate- and sitting around a fire every evening- that has now become a must for all future camping trips. Also, a short walk/drive away finds you at the top of a hill looking down onto Torquay and the local amenities. You go from the land that time forgot to modern 'civilisation' in a couple of hundred yards.

The only real complaint I could possibly come up with would be with the children's play area. The climbing frame seemed less than sturdy and I wasn't too keen on all the thistles and stinging nettles. This is a minor gripe though as no responsible parent will let their children run amok in a communal playground unsupervised.

If we find ourselves in the area again we will definitely visit, even if just to say hi.

I camped here on 11. 08. 14 for a week with my family, and I must say I will definitely be going back. Such a lovely quite and reasonably priced campsite! Owners are so friendly and helpful, they charged my phone for me every morning. There is a little shop on the site which offers essentials like milk, tea bags and sweets for the children. The toilet/shower block was clean an basic, showers were always lovely with a perfect temperature, there are sockets for hair dryer etc. Behind the toilet block are sinks where you can do your washing up an a laundry room just round the side, although we never used them there are brick BBQ's behind the toilet block which I think is a lovely thought. At the bottom of the site there is a lovely little playground, which my daughter loved. We were never short of things to do or places to see as the campsite is situated a good distance from beaches, towns and places to explore. I would recommend this campsite for anyone who is willing to leave technology behind and have a fantastic family holiday.

We are going back again this year. There is a shop here which is handy. The showers and loos are fine. It's a pretty place and good for walks. The owners are very helpful and friendly. When we were there they opened the big barn. Apparently they don't do this often. But really they should. The children loved it. My only complaint was that a week into our holiday, a big group of men landed near to us and they were very very noisy and swearing a lot all day and well past midnight. I was surprised that the owner didn't say anything to make them be quiet. Thankfully they were only there two days. We were preparing to leave because of them.

Can't recommend this site highly enough. If you like your sites relaxed, rustic and real, , proper campsites (not that glamping variety) then this is it. Wonderful views, relaxed friendly atmosphere and functional no frills shower, laundry and BBQ facilities. This site is situated on a Devonshire farm and has that authentic farmland feel. It came highly recommended by locals too. Great value for money, and the rates don't take the mick. We have a little one, and the owners went far out of their way to help us, and make sure we had a lovely time; which we did.

Well worth a visit and we will be returning again and again and again.
