This is a Certificated Site (CS). These select sites are small, privately run campsites that operates under the Club’s jurisdiction and can only accommodate up to 5 caravans or motorhomes and up to 10 trailer tents or tents, unless express permission has been given by the Club to accommodate more. They range from secluded Hideaways to fully facilitated family friendly sites, and are often found in locations where larger commercial sites are prohibited so you could be camping close to a beach or in the National Park, for example.

Fabulous site, amazing views, the Hedgehog centre was very educational. Handy for town, walking distance to a bus stop. Excellent site.
Although the pitches are level, the site is on a steep slope but this does give good views!

A proper little gem of a campsite. Very quiet with some spectacular views. The farm has some interesting stuff for the kids. We shall return.
The site has a narrow road access, which causes some locals to be a little impatient, particularly if you have a large unit and towing a trailer/Caravan. (The Summer Pest Syndrome). Otherwise, no problems whatsoever. On site there are toilets and showers and a small shop that sells some fresh produce and emergency supplies. There is a farm on site with small animals and a petting section. Also a Hedgehog hospital and well worth spending some time. There is also a little cafe, where we had a splendid breakfast but didn't get the opportunity to try out The Fish and Chip night on Fridays. Maybe next time.
Newton Abbott is within easy reach and a Sainsbury's at the bottom of the hill, just outside the town centre. We also travelled into Torquay, which is only 5 miles away and if you follow the back roads, you don't join the other travellers in the mad rush for the beach.
All tourist facilities are within easy reach, including the Steam Railways, which are well with a visit.
All in all, a terrific little site which is out of the way, but good for a central base and visits from the site.
Lovely people who are friendly and chatty and helpful if you need it. We were made to feel very welcome and Nothing was too much trouble. Recommended with all the bells and whistles. Thanks for lovely, quiet and peaceful weekend. See you again soon.

This is one of the best CS sites we've discovered and especially well suited for families. Although a little steep to reach hard standing not a problem for our motorhome but well worth it when you're there. Incredibly friendly, very open and welcoming with the farm attractions being a very positive feature. If you've got children and you're staying in Devon you'd be mad not to try here!
