Wow, what a view

We stayed for 4 nights in July 2018 as part of a south coast trip. 2 adults, 2 children and 2 dogs in 1 caravan. Fantastic view and a well run lovely site. Would definitely stay here again should we revisit Devon and didn't manage to fit in everything we wanted to do in this trip. Yes the narrow lane worried me, being a nervous tower, and large outfits may struggle should they meet a tractor on route but we met several vehicles and found no real problem at the passing places with our elderly 6 berth Elldis. Really glad we picked this site having trawled through all the suitable cl's in the Devon area. Friendly helpful owner, dog walk in huge adjacent sheep field and well stocked information hut with lots of leaflets and thoughtfully laminated maps to help you decide what to do with your time there, or you could just sit and relax and enjoy the view!

Superb.....

We've done this before, and aside of the wonderful British weather, just as good. Our reviews have stated...the best we've stayed at...but...We love this site. It's the nicest we've used, and the only one we've returned to. It's tidy and loved, it's close to the main route, but you feel in the middle of nowhere. Yet 20 mins down the road is Exeter, or 5 mins down the lane is the Teign walk. Nothing is too much-owned by caravaners, Geoff and Joyce know what you want in a CL. There's no frills, no nonsense and no expensive bill at the end of your stay. Oh, and you an see Dartmoor in the distance......possibly the best CL in the south west! Booking again soon 🙂

What an absolte gem of a site

We are currently staying on this site and it is fabulous. There are no toilet or shower facilities but self contained units would struggle to do better. In an idyllic setting With water and elsan available on site, the area is extremely well kept. Great access to the Teign gorge for outstanding walks both east and west.

Idyllic location

We have just returned from 2 nights stay in our campervan. The owners are so very welcoming and the location and view is just superb. Beautifully kept, clean and tidy. Lovely walks to the river from the site so you don't even have to drive out. Can highly recommend!

Excellent Site

This was our first visit to this CL but it didn't disappoint. Level grass pitches all affording a superb view across the valley towards Whiddon Down. Good walking from the site with the option of exercising the dogs off the lead (when no sheep present) in the adjacent field. Friendly owners who keep the site spotless - close mown grass (all picked up); recycling and excellent information hut. Approach from Cheriton Bishop is a bit narrow but there are plenty of passing places on the lane. Excellent value at £12 a night - highly recommended if you appreciate peace and quiet.
