Picked this site as a stopover on our way to Cornwall. Absolutely beautiful. Nice and quite and a great view of the lake. Will be back and next time will pack my fishing rods.
5 hardstanding pitches, each with own 16amp EHU and water point, overlooking one of the fishing lakes. WC, with washing up area (centrally heated) and separate shower (£1 coin operated) in nearby fisherman's lodge, exclusive use as fisherman have their own facilities Nice and quiet site, you can hear the owls at night. Easy access from M5 Few minuets drive into Cullompton where there is a large Tesco's, Aldi and Home Bargains plus some independents plus eateries There are footpaths from the site into nearby Kentisbeare which has a post office shop and pub. Unfortunately we visited after all the recent rain and the footpaths were extremely wet and muddy but will plan to return in the drier weather as this site would be ideal for walking etc. Would recommend as somewhere to stay to visit the surrounding area as Honiton, Exeter,Tiverton and Taunton are within 30 minutes drive. We visited Sidmouth from here and it was only a 40 minute drive.
I had a bad experience at another camp site and left a day early. Therefore we needed a place for the night at short notice and this seemed to fit the bill. The directions were slightly misleading in that you have to turn right at the crossroad, before the ford, when in Dead Lane. We arrived reasonably late but had already made suitable arrangements to park up and sort out payment in the morning. Each of the five pitches are level hard-standings with there own water supply. However we had to get creative filling up our water tank because the hose could not be detached to allow the supply hose for the motorhome to be attached. It was not a major problem when two pairs of hands are available. During the evening overnight fishermen arrived which was unexpected, especially when voices are heard in the middle of the countryside and you are the only site occupant. The morning got off to an early start to the sound of chainsaws and wood shredders operating only 15 metres away from the 'van'. The toilet and shower were clean. I could not find a grey water drain, unless the black water drain in the fishery was meant to be used, which for a motor-home was not possible. I felt that £15 was a little expensive for this site, particularly in October. I might stay here overnight in the future, but for a motor-home I feel a longer stay would not be feasible.
Nice little site, well looked after and nice location. Fantastic food in Kentisbeare which is about 1 mile away and a lovely village to walk to and around. However we found that the site was not as quiet as we imagined, especially at the weekend. We ended up on the pitch nearest the car park for the lakes which meant a very early awakening both weekend mornings with fishermen arriving with little or no regard for someone perhaps trying to sleep nearby. Plenty of car doors slamming. Although a bit irritating the worst was that one of the lakes is accessed via a driveway running immediately past the pitches. This meant that over the weekend in particular cars were driving up and down feet from your hitch with absolutely no speed restrictions. I was just glad I did not have young children or a dog to worry about. The staff appeared to be the worst culprits for speed. At times outside the fishermen's rush hour it is a quiet site in a really lovely location. If you fish and tourit is then fantastic!
Quiet little site good for walking and fishing on your doorstep. However, the facilities are basic, and the grass between pitches is overgrown. At £15 a night this year, I felt it was over-priced. The shower is additional at around £1 depending on how long you require and the room was unheated. Although there are notices stating the toilet and shower are for the caravan park, the fishermen also used them.
