Perfect and peaceful

Stayed here for 3 nights and will definitely be back. Apart from the odd tractor (expected in such a rural haven) it was quiet and peaceful. Facilities spotless and well tended by Adrian who was welcoming but unobtrusive. Plenty of space between units with a very chilled and friendly atmosphere. Well placed for exploring various seaside locations but also perfect if you just want somewhere relaxing to chill out.

Away from it all yet close to home

Being only just over an hour down the motorway from home this is the perfect little getaway. The site is very peaceful with chickens and cockerels roaming around. Pitches are well spaced and kept neat and tidy and the shower and WC as always on a CL are a bonus. The owner is very friendly and helpful and comes round daily to greet you and check everything is ok. Being my first time here and knowing I was on my own he was keen to make sure I was here and settled. He is not always able to be here when you arrive, but, very efficiently puts your name on your pitch so you know exactly where you are. The (very small) village is only a short walk down the lane where there is a pub and (apparently) buses to Exeter and Exmouth. Very handy to know. It is fairly easy to find although the last bit up the track to the site could be easily missed as the sign at the end of the lane is not easily seen. However, Adrian is looking to improve this. As others have said it is a very narrow track but only a very short distance so should not be a problem. All in all a great little site. I will definitely be coming again.

weekend away to catch up with friends

Great site, access was interesting as approach road is a typical narrow Devon country lane. but once that was out of the way the stay was most enjoyable. Welcome was very friendly and facilities were what was expected. plenty to see and do in the area. Site was well maintained quiet apart from the odd military helicopter. Will stay there again

Quiet and tranquil location

Recently stayed at the Mallards for three nights, very easy to find and good sized pitches. Adrian posts a welcome team message so when you arrive it’s easy to locate your pitch and setup without delay. We’re relatively new to camping, after putting up and attaching the awning onto our VW camper van we realised our mains lead was far too short. Adrian very kindly loaned us a longer lead so we could hookup to the electric. He’s very helpful, friendly and welcoming, keeps the pitches and facilities very tidy and clean. A real haven, very quiet, apart from the sound of the chickens, which we watched endlessly, oh and fresh eggs if you require for breakfast, sold daily. A real bonus was the shower and toilet block. We hope to return again later in the year.

Great CL

We stayed here for 8 nights at the beginning of May with our caravan. The site is a lovely long strip of well kept grass with all units looking out onto open fields, with plenty of space between them. We had a very warm welcome from Adrian, but prior to him appearing our name was displayed at the entrance informing us of our pitch no. The site is approached down a very narrow road and track but hold your nerve, take it easy and you will be fine - the site is worth it.
