Spectacular views

Drakes View
My wife and I stayed here for 12 nights as a base for visiting our son in Plymouth and were very impressed, the views over Drakes island were spectacular. Phil was very welcoming and helpful. It was the first time we had stayed on a site without electrical hook-up, but found our solar panel kept our battery sufficiently charged to run our lights and pump. We used gas to run our fridge and heating (when needed). The site is very convenient for visiting the Plymouth area and as we had push bikes we found excellent off road trails in the area. As mentioned by others, there is access to the coastal path down the road from site, allowed us to walk to a number of beaches such as Bovisand. A great stay and we would not hesitate to visit again.

Fabulous view!

Drakes View
Stayed in our motorhome for one night. Simple off grid site, mown grass over hardcore/ stony base so no worries of parking motorhome, views from top of the site over to Plymouth, Drakes Island and Mount Edgcumbe, great for boat watching too! Peaceful site but do hear the drone of the boat engines. Wifi was poor on pitch, had to move closer to building to receive signal. Owner was there to welcome us and very friendly. Check directions on booking as road is currently closed! Access to the site is through the carpark of the golf course and the site overlooks the 18th fairway - £15 for a twilight round on a well maintained parkland course.

Lovely site with great views over to Cornwall, Devenport docks, Plymouth Hoe and over to Dartmoor. well maintained grounds the owner is very friendly and approachable for local information. Levelling ramps required on some parts of the site and sturdy awning pegs as ground is good and solid. Will definitely visit again.
