 Brilliant site, a bit of the beaten track,

Reasonable distance from Torbay, Alan and staff were very helpful,

Showers and toilets kept very clean,

Site is a bit steep down to the lower field but plenty of level pitches

 Lovely stay here, the staff are very friendly and flexible.


Location - near the shops and beaches

Quiet, down a country lane away from any big roads

Staff were very friendly

Shower and toilets were cleaned regularly


Camped in the far field but could still hear kids screaming and shouting from the play park

 Lovely site with fantastic views of the rolling Devon countryside. Good washing and shower facilities and friendly staff.

We stayed through the week off-peak and it was pretty peaceful. Friday night it got quite busy with a younger crowd and young families.

Very handy as a base for Torquay and the surrounding area.

We'd happily stay there again.

 My wife and I discovered Treacle Valley by accident and loved it from day one and have returned on several occasions since.

Initial check in was quick and easy and we really liked the laid back atmosphere created by Alan and his team. It has quickly become our go to place when we want to chill out for a few days.

We are looking forward to returning as soon as possible but hope that the site won't be too busy!

Very highly recommended.

 It was our first camping experience. We went down from Manchester. I booked it for our group so I was quite nervous but

All of us really enjoyed. Management was so caring

They cleaned and sanitised communal area every 2 hours.

Very beautiful surrounding.

About 2 miles away from shops.

We will back again

 We have just returned from a weekend camping at Treacle Valley. What a beautiful place! The scenery from the tent was fantastic looking out over the valley. The campsite was large and it was quite busy while we were there, however there was plenty of space and you could just pitch up anywhere. The washblock had separate male and female areas. In the male section there were 4 showers, several cubicles and several urinals. In the female section there were 4 showers, several cubicles and 3 changing cubicles too. Even though the campsite was really busy, there was never a queue, which was great. The owner of the campsite was very friendly and came round to welcome us. He also popped round on one of the evenings to check that everybody was happy. A very nice place to stay.

 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.
