Quality doesn't come cheaply

As others have written, this is an excellent CL, and moreover usable year round which is always a bonus in our climate. We spent two very comfortable and quiet nights here a week ago. It's well located, as has been said, although not all the neighbouring towns welcome motorhomers (Sidmouth is good, though). We thought £20 was a little high, especially as one of our favourite CS's from the other major club (Shhh!) costs us £11 per night inc hard standings, electricity, 2 toilets + just 50p for a shower. More especially though, we'd come directly from Hillhead Club Site at Brixham and that was cheaper, even with its heated floor toilets, motorhome service point, etc! I accept that it was our choice to stay and we're glad we did, but it might just make us think twice...

Best warm welcome ever to a fabulous tranquil CL of perfection !

We have recently stayed ten nights at Moor View which is well located after leaving the M5 at Junction 30 and following the Site Directory instructions. Access to the CL is very good albeit from quite a busy minor road - we had no issues at all with our twin axle Swift Conqueror caravan. Immediately upon arrival, it became clear from the very warm reception that we received from the Owner - Mr Slade - that he was a "people person" and determined to deliver at his Adults Only CL an outstanding experience to everyone - and throughout our stay it became very apparent that what mattered to Mr Slade was that all his "guests" enjoyed that outstanding experience in respect of which he took great pride, commenting that the experience was a too way thing ie for the site owner and the club members which clearly he valued. Being a "local" he has considerable knowledge of the area. After our initial chat with Mr Slade, we were directed to our reserved pitch where Mr Slade was extremely helpful to aid us with the positioning of our caravan on the level hard standing pitch - all pitches face South. The only issue was a need to use a hammer to ensure our awning pegs went into the hard standing lol !!! We were highly delighted to find that each pitch has its own drinking water tap, waste outlet and toilet disposal point (we had omitted to spot in the Sites Directory that the pitches were fully serviced including waste outlets, and had arrived unprepared to channel our waste direct to the outlet but had on board the necessary water connectors from the tap to our aquaroll which took all the hard work out of having to fetch water - and also just a few feet away to empty that toilet cassette !). The CL is maintained to a very high standard by Mr Slade who is always available for a chat when out and about the site. On either side of each hard standing is grass which is cut and the grass collected for feeding to sheep in the field which adjoins the CL, all this adding to the feeling of "getting away from that busy world"! The reason for our visit was to visit Sidmouth but not far away with easy access are Lyme Regis, Seaton, Budleigh Salterton, Exmouth and Exeter (the latter even oly about 10-15 minutes). Discounted fuel can be conveniently obtained from a superstore on the outskirts of Exeter and within 10-15 minutes of the CL. The standards of this well deserved very busy Adults ONly CL are outstanding and a visit is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED in the light of our own excellent experience. A very efficiently operated CL well worthy of being CL of the Year !

Excellent site

Spent 10 nights here in late August. Lovely site, well laid out with easy access. Fully serviced pitches makes for an easy time. Paul is a friendly and helpful person with a good knowledge of places to visit. I'm sure we will be back in the near future.

Excellent

Well what is there more to like ... lovely sight, nice view, there’s Paul the friendly owner who will go out of his way for you, there is your own large plot for your caravan, your own water, your own waste water, your own toilet point, your own recycling and waste bins, and all in a great location to visit nearby Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Exmouth and Exeter, and easy to get to Lyme Regis, Teignmouth, Torquay, Dartmouth and beyond. We were there in July and have booked to return in September. I didn’t want to give out a review In case it helps the site get booked up for when I want to come again - but I’ve relented as I think Paul deserves his success. We’re just hoping the sunflowers are out on our return as they were just not ready when we were there. John & Shirley Kelsall - stayed July 2019

Perfect, but probably just this once

The previous review all make mention of the excellent pitches and facilities at this site, and it's true. The pitches are deep enough for the longest combination and wide enough to fit your caravan and awning on the hardstanding. They include Water, drainage, Electric points and your very own Dustbin and Recycling bin. In addition, and a new one for me, was your very own Elsan, accessed by lifting the grid to empty straight into the sewer with a hoselock and pipe to attach to the water point for swilling. The pitches are also very well spaced apart and look out onto a tranquil bucolic view with sheep and heifers in the enclosure in front.It's an adults only site and no dogs allowed, which will appeal to some and not to others. The site is set back from the road slightly and access is good and well marked. The road is not that busy especially at night. It also far enough away from the main Exeter to Sidmouth road as to make road noise almost non existent. We stayed for a week and travelled no more than 8 miles in any direction to reach those places we wished to visit. So, why the proviso? There are a couple of small minuses. One which wouldn't stop us coming back but the other would. The first is the hardness of the pitch to hammer awning pegs in. We ended up with several bent ones. But now that we know about it, it wouldn't be a problem. Another slight problem might occur for long Motorhomes as turning into a pitch without encroaching on the grass could be difficult. The main sticking point is price. We paid £20 per night for a site which didn't have either a Toilet and/or a Shower. This is beyond what we would normally pay or wish to pay for such facilities. I knew the amount before i went and have no problem with it this time as it was over Easter and provided me with the best possible place to be on an adults only site at a time of school holidays. Nothing against children just against the damage I have suffered to my caravan and car in the past by their actions. One small point to make is that next to the site are 3 letting detached houses of a modern design. Lovely to look at and the CL is accessed by passing by these houses. However these lets do allow children but it seems that the owner (a very engaging person) probably asks them not to encroach on the CL as none did over the Easter period. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and pushed the boat out price wise but, having just left a very similar set up which did provide a WC and Shower but cost £15 per night, feel we wouldn't again. Nothing to prevent giving it 5* though.
