Spot on!

We've just spent 9 nights at this lovely CL which is perfectly located to explore all around the Plymouth area. The directions to site were easy to follow and we had the choice of hard standing or grass. The site is very pretty and well maintained and the daily visits from Pip the dog were our highlight. Leveling blocks are a must; I just wish we'd got more to put under our steps as it was quite a drop down! On the Friday we took part in a Murder Mystery at the Brook Inn in Plympton where we had a fantastic time with the very welcoming locals - I gather they're held regularly so do check out their next event. We would definitely recommend this site and will be sure to use this CL again when back in the area.

Lovely CL providing a good base for visiting Plymouth and surrounding areas

We stayed at the site for 8 days using it as a base in Plymouth whilst visiting family and friends.This is a lovely CL site in a rural location with easy access to the A38. The site is only about a mile from the dual carriageway and although others have reported some road noise, this was not an issue for us. During the late hours it was very quiet. The site itself is very pleasant and located within a small farm. Access to the farm is down a country lane which is wide enough for vehicles to pass. Now that the lane is closed off at one end, other than local traffic we came across very little other traffic. The site is well maintained and provides everything you would expect on a CL. There are 3 hard standing pitches and 2 are on the grass paddock. We had a grass pitch and despite lots of rain this week, the ground was well drained and dried out very quickly.Access to the site could be tight for larger units but with care should not be a problem. The owners keep the entrance and hedgerow well trimmed back making it easy to get in and out. The closure at the bottom of the main lane was not a problem as there is now a way through to Plymouth without the need for the previously mentioned long detour. Overall a lovely site which I am sure we will use again in the future.

Another lovely CL

Firstly and as is often.the case, the price is now £12 per night ( this is not a complaint) The entrance is very narrow for larger units, go on from the marked entrance only a few yards and turn in there, it's much wider -hence not 5stars -. It's very quiet and open for the most part ( satellite users should avoid backing unto the hedge) Hard standings are welcome, fresh water tap and bins great. Elson point more than adequate.

As usual, didn't want to leave !!!!

We have visited this site with our caravan many times over the last 10 years and recently returned from yet another very enjoyable stay. On this occasion we parked our 'van in the orchard and had masses of space, sun or shade, just as we wished! Martin, Karen and the resident dog Pip are very welcoming and friendly, and the site is kept in a very tidy condition whilst still retaining its 'farm' atmosphere with some lovely little calves! Although current traffic diversions do make regular trips into Plymouth a little more challenging, we certainly wouldn't be put off and would thoroughly recommend this site to anyone. Can't wait for our next visit. Many thanks!!

Good value alternative to other sites in Plymouth

We stayed on this site between Christmas & New Year 2016, using it as a base to visit remaining family members in the area. Mr Curtis had been unwell and difficult to contact to book the pitch - I hope he has now recovered ! Access to the site is a tight, sharp turn so care may be needed with larger outfits, but the welcome from the owner was warm and he was happy to stop and chat.Previous reviews had mentioned the "detour" to get into Plymouth - the road is now one-way, but it is only a short distance onto the A38 Devon Expressway into the city, so we had no issues with this at all. The site has all that is required from a CL and was reasonably level and well drained, given the time of year. The resident dog had a little falling out with one of ours, so caution was required ! Given the price of some of the "all-year" commercial sites closer to town, this served as a much more affordable base to visit the surrounding areas. Would use again if we come back to Plymouth in future.
