We stayed two nights a week or so ago. Mr & Mrs Dicker could not have been more helpful & kind. We had a flat van battery & Mr Dicker went above & beyond to help us which took the stress out of the experience (entirely our own fault). The site has exceptional views, fantastic dog walks & close to Dartmoor. We needed to be near to Exeter so that was ideal for visiting there too. We will be back! Thank you so much Mr & Mrs Dicker :-)

Just got back from an excellent week staying here. Owner very welcoming and knowledgeable. Excellent views from this lawned site with frequent sightings of deer in front of our van! Great facilities for exercising our dogs. Would highly recommend. Lots of local river walks which our dogs and children loved! Clear recycling and emptying areas.

Just had a wonderful weekend away at this great well kept cl. owners are very welcoming and happy to give you any information about the area. the site is perfect in my opinion, it is level with fantastic views and various wild life on any of the pitches...There is an information hut with various various things to do and some maps with walks around the area.we had a great walk from the site to finglebridge about an 8 mile round trip. a well organised recycling area, grey and chemical waste area next to the hut. this is definitely on our go to site as its only 40 mins from home. one bit of advice i would strongly recommend is to contact owners about arrival time as the approach is down a country lane with passing places but would be really tight if you met another caravan or MH coming in the opposite direction. thank you for a great weekend and see you again.

Stayed here for eight nights and could'nt fault this CL. Very spacious, fabulous views towards Dartmoor. Good walks from site, along the river to Fingle Bridge, and beyond. Lovely owners who did everything possible to help us keep safe during this awful Covid time. So relaxing, good site for dog owners, there is a very large field for exercising your dogs. Big spacious pitches, grasswell kept and short. Perfect!

Very peacful

Holeacre
A very peaceful and quiet site with plenty of space and a wonderful view. There are some typically narrow Devon lanes to get to it but it's well worth the effort. It's on a hill so any walk or cycle ride involves a bit of a climb but there are some wonderfully attractive walks to he had up and down the River Teign.
