Super little CL

Stayed a couple of nights at this fantastic CL. It is nicely kept and you are able to walk around the numerous fishing lakes next to the site. Owner is friendly and very helpful and always around should you need him. Would definitely use again either for an overnight stop or longer stay.

Super and great value

We have just spent a week here.Its a super spot,walks round fishing lakes with gosling's,geese,ducks , many more birds too numerous to name. Easy access onto pitch ,easy drive to beaches , and walks on common,so much to do in locality,park and ride 10mins away farm shop near.There is a bus that goes right past the end of the track where do is sited,so that's great for motorbikers with their free bus passes. The toilets are meant for fishermen so they should not come into the discussion,I feel the club should remove these comments,I did however clean one and basin! as a token of my gratitude rather than complaining! We will certainly be back.Great spot.Welcome ,friendly host.

One of the best we have stayed at.

Just returned from a Bank Holiday break, and what a fabulous find this CL was! Beautifully kept, with hard standings, though we elected to use a grass pitch, perfect for stretching the dog’s legs in a morning with a stroll round the fishing lakes - so much nicer than trudging round the streets. Even though it rained heavily on Sunday, drainage on the grass pitch was no problem. Driver30’s review puzzled me. Why use toilets meant for anglers when you have your van with all facilities? If I have one negative comment, it’s TV reception. The handbook says it’s good, but we didn’t manage to tune into a single channel. Hurray for DVDs. We can’t wait to return, Thank you Mr Willcocks for a great stay, despite the dodgy weather.

the perfect break

A lovely site in a beautiful setting, next to fishing lakes, well maintained by the owner and now with electric hookups installed since our last visit. Well situated for Exeter, coast and moors with bus route 1/2 mile away. Farm shop is also close by. We'll be back!

Fishy

I agree with all the other reviews regarding location etc.  The trouble we had was sharing the site with fisherman who simply didn't care about the caravans. We were woken at 6.30am one morning by a group chatting in their "normal" daytime voices - and using language that we would prefer not to listen to.  The toilet is literally a shed with no locks on the doors, that don't shut properly.  It seems that other users were not familiar with the flushing process - but at least some people made an effort, not like the fisherman we saw relieving himself on the other side of the lake.  Add to that, cars and vans arriving and departing at high speeds along the access road late into the evening - we went out every day so we were only affected in the evenings and overnight - we won't be back.
