A charming site

50 Cofton Hill
This site has superb views over the River Exe estuary. It’s basic but the views make up for some of the “finer” points on modernity. Mr and Mrs Bloomfield are very friendly and welcoming and both came to see us at different times. There’s only one thing about this site and specifically I’m addressing people who may be new to caravanning or motorhoming. If you visit many parts of Devon, you’ll just have to accept that very narrow lanes are part of the package and passing places can be few and far between. When you book your pitch, Mrs Bloomfield will send you a map. DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES USE YOUR SATNAV! The map you’ll receive will tell you how to find the site but if you’re new to towing and want to build your confidence, give this site a miss. The last mile or so to the site from the A379 is along a very narrow set of roads that are barely a caravan width. There are one or two steep bits and you’ll need a low gear and plenty of available “grunt” under the drivers right foot. IMHO, this is not the site for someone who is new to towing or needs to build their confidence. But if you’re a seasoned caravanner or Motorhomer, go for it! The site is spacious, the views are changing all the time and you’ll have a great time.

Run down dangerous site.

50 Cofton Hill
Approach to site is along single track rd with over hanging trees and hedges we did considerable damage to our caravan and the branches scratch windows, body and tore the decal. On arrival we thought we’d arrived at a scrap yard with broken down buildings and rubbish strewn around . The waste disposal was a dustbin rammed in a hole and was dangerous. The site is quiet but the mass of falling down sheds abd rubbish is just shocking. The owners are making £600 a week and will only take cash . Obviously not investing any back to bring the site into line with today expected standards . I have no idea how this site is being passed by the caravan and motor home club or indeed when it was last visited .

Basic but an Absolute Gem!

50 Cofton Hill
We have now been to this site three times. It is a classic CL with simple facilities, don't expect a club house or shower block here. There is water and electricity included in the site fees and somewhere to loose both grey & brown water. What this site does have though is great views of the Exe Estuary and a tranquil location. The mainline Paddington to Penzance railway runs about a half mile away but the sound is not intrusive but almost melodic if you are awake. You can even walk to and hop on a train in Starcross or Dawlish Warren. The site is 1/4mile from a national cycle route and we cycled to Dawlish (4 miles), Exeter (10 miles and Exemouth (18miles) along either dedicated cycle ways, canal paths or (very) quiet country roads. All very enjoyable. There is a bus stop within 1/4 mile with very frequent buses to Exeter or Teignmouth. We took trips in both directions including daytrips to Torbay. Use the Stagecoach app as it will also show where the bus is in real time. Dawlish Warren is within walking distance if you wish to mix with the greater UK population with beach, shops and amusement arcades. There are also two nice public houses in Cockwood overlooking the harbour where you may get both drinks and food. We left our motor home parked up for the fortnight we were there and just walked, cycled or hopped on buses, all very relaxing. Roger & Pauline are two very nice laid back people who will make you feel welcome and will give nuggets of local info if required. Pauline will send a pdf with detailed instructions on how to get into site. Do follow these and NOT your SATNAV! The final bit of the lane is overgrown and feels very narrow but there are plenty of passing bays and is quiet outside of the school run. This place has become a favourite of ours and maybe see you there one day!

Super first break of the year

50 Cofton Hill
Made very welcome by owners. Extremely helpful but not intrusive. Really peaceful and beautiful location. Good walks from site. Well away from the hubbub of the larger sites in this area. Would recommend this site for both short breaks and longer stays because of the location and easy access to many places of interest.. Thank you Pauline and Roger.

Difficult to find without provided instructions

50 Cofton Hill
We spent 6 days here August 2020 and once pitched up did not use our car for the whole stay as we were able to cycle to Dawlish, Teignmouth and using the Exe Estuary cycle track cycled round to Exmouth too. The cycle path was mostly flat but cycling along the roads pretty hilly with the return to the site always uphill at the end of the day but possible. The views as other people have said are lovely over the estuary. The pitches were clearly marked but seemed quite close together so noise could be heard from the next caravan so it didn't feel quite as private as some CL's we have stayed. Also with being high up looking down over the valley, we did notice more road noise than we expected given that the site was well away from the road. The water and waste recycling facilities all clearly marked out. Access to the site was quite tricky, unfortunately I had not been able to download the instructions sent from the owner prior to our visit. We missed the turn twice (as we were following the instructions in the book and the telephone that is referred to was removed 6 months ago, so we ended up in the middle of Dawlish which was not ideal. Once we did finally get to the site and set up we enjoyed our stay and the owner was friendly.
