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.
Set in 10 acres of its own ground Hunters Lodge is the ideal location for a quiet getaway. Also run as a smallholding with sheep and chickens (free range eggs available). Enjoy being close to nature whilst listening to the babbling brook, keep an eye out for the Owls that can be heard at night. Deer can even be spotted in the opposite field. Facilities include Chemical disposal point, Recycling point, Drinking water taps, level grass pitches, 16 amp Electric hook-up points, shower facilities and a washroom with toilet and hand wash basin.
We have a coarse fishing lake onsite available at a small extra charge. We are conveniently located with a bus stop at the end of Staplake Lane. Trains run regularly from Starcross station.
The Exe Estuary Cycle Trail goes through Starcross and onto Dawlish Warren and Dawlish.

Small site well laid out. Lovely setting next to the fishing lake
This is a very pleasant site and we had a friendly welcome. The hard standings could just do with being about a foot wider so that you can step out of the motorhome onto the hard standing rather than the grass, especially if it has been raining and is muddy. We stayed off season so did not have a problem with queuing for the shower, there is only one ladies and one gents. I would imagine that in the summer when the site is full it might prove to be a little tedious. It was great for cycling as the cycle path in to Exeter is brilliant. We also had a lovely walk in to Dawlish. I would recommend this site.

Even out of season the site is immaculate and lovely. Easy walk to the estuary and a couple of good pubs with food.
Very neat, clean and tidy site. Efficient but pleasant welcome from owner who was very informative on the locality. Just outside Starcross so feels like countryside but easy to get into the village on foot. Cannot vouch for the fishing but the small lake on site is very pretty.
It's a great jumping off point for all kind of activities but the layout of the site suggests (there was just one other unit onsite when we stayed) that it would be very pleasant and quiet enough even when full. The 6 hardstanding pitches are lovely with generous space for an awning alongside.
Couple of puns to choose from: Atmospheric Railway in Starcross busy with nice enough food at reasonable prices. Anchor very nice with very good menu (assuming you like seafood and aren't allergic to crab!) although the prices reflect that.
We will definitely be returning to stay for longer in warmer and sunnier weather!

I really shouldn't do a review because we may not be able to come back if everyone books :)
Lovely site run by a friendly but not invasive owner . Shown all the amenities when we arrived and told of the dog walk at the back that leads into the lane for the village .
Lovely and clean , short grass - didn't try the shower or loos as we used our own .
There is a small laundrette and fresh eggs for sale from the well cared for on site chickens.
Only down side was the very noisy road , the stream that was very overgrown and could do with some TLC , the steam and bridge by the lake could be very picturesque if strimmed and cleared and the very noisy campers on our last day . The hand standing had huge issues when pitching the awning , 2 inches of cement at the side meant you can't put pegs in ( could be solved by bringing the sides out with gravel for caravan tyres ) . Very well defined and generous pitches
Very pricey for a basic site but worth it if you love the Dawlish area .

Lovely well kept site
This is a lovely site with a stream running through it and extremely well kept. There are 6 hard standings made of pavers and which sit about 2�above ground level. The hard standings are surrounded by a couple of inches of cement below the grass. This makes it difficult to secure any caravan awnings near to the caravan. There is one grass pitch with electricity. Camping is in adjacent field with large pitches. The toilet facilities consist of one toilet, shower and wash basin for the ladies and the same for the men. The site is ideal for motor homes and caravans preferably without awnings. The adjacent road, although only a minor road is the main route to the A380 and A30 and is quite busy and noisy at times. Expensive for a CS. We paid �19.50 per night in May 2016.
