Hidden Gem

Furze Park Farm
This is a lovely site, peace and tranquillity. This was our first time at a 5 van CL site and one which we will definitely return to. It's within easy reach of Plymouth and a great golf course, Staddon Heights! Karen was very welcoming and helpful on our arrival and this site being a working farm we purchased fresh free range eggs. The directions to the site were spot on and easy to follow. All in all we had a lovely time and will definitely look to return.

The Great Escape 2020...

Furze Park Farm
So good to be back in the 'van again at what is arguably our favourite CL! When we arrived the site looked immaculate, the grass freshly mown and flower tubs dotted around. Two new good hardstandings have been added since our visit last year, but as usual we chose our favourite spot up in the orchard. A new toilet emptying point had also been installed since last year. As usual we received a very warm welcome from Martin, Karen and Pip the dog and with pretty good, but not perfect, weather overall, we had a marvellously relaxing 15 nights, and as usual didn't want to leave! The route into Plymouth still involves an interesting trip through Sherford but obviously by next year the new and easy route should be well established. Our thanks to Martin and Karen for yet another wonderful stay, can't wait for next year!!

Spot on!

Furze Park Farm
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

Furze Park Farm
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

Furze Park Farm
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.
