Short Break

This is a well kept site which is easy to access, the owners were extremely helpfull there are good views across the fields. where you can exercise your dog. Depending on what you look for from a holiday we found the down side was the noise from the adjacent road, plus walking along it or cycling would not be easy. The nearest shops are four miles away at Tiverton, where you can also combine a pleasant walk along the canal.

A lovely little site.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst touring around. Found it with ease off directions in book. No problems getting on to site with a wide entrance. Pitches aren’t particularly flat So we were glad we had a 4x4 to help us back into our pitch. Our pitch was hard standing and we put our awning on the grass which caused a slope which left us with a giant step out of the caravan into the awning. No problem to us but maybe we should have put awning on gravel and moved caravan further over. Beautiful views on sunny days from caravan window. Easy access to all attractions. Lovely friendly owner. Dogs had a fabulous field where they could run and play ball. Our only niggle was the road at the back of the caravans was a little bit of a race track which seemed to be quite load. All in all a good stay and would certainly come back if in the area again.

A relaxing break

We stayed 11 nights. Unfortunately the owners were away so didn’t get local knowledge . We had the families phone number if any problems occurred and the rubbish was cleared regularly. We missed the deer probably scared away by our dogs. The site was lovely and relaxing, I chose a grass pitch even though it had been raining but the ground was good and I didn’t experience any problems. Being able to walk the dogs in the two fields was also a great help. We visited the tourist information centre for the area details. The horse drawn canal trip was a must and didn’t disappoint. Knighthayes and the walk around the woods another enjoyable outing. We did park and ride at Exeter visiting the cathedral and exploring the waterside. If we are in the area again I wouldn’t hesitate to come back. The site was easy to access with Tiverton close by for the market days plus shops and Morrison’s and Tesco’s in the area too.
