Not a good one

Crockwell Park
Having stayed at many CL sites this is not among our top sites. With only two level pitches with hard standing the rest were on grass slopes, with steep access and caravans could not be levelled properly due to the steepness. During our stay one caravan had to be towed off as the slope was too steep on wet grass to be moved by a standard car We were woken every morning at 7am by lorries going to the nearby quarry, after which the road was busy all day. The dogs in the nearby boarding kennels started a cacophony of barking at 8 am which went on all day until about 5pm There is no where on or near the site to exercise or walk dogs and the road is too dangerous to walk along, also one of the owner's dogs was on the loose on the site several times causing a nuisance and the place smelt badly due to several horses and their exercise yard being in close proximity. Disposal of WC waste was down an open toilet (no flush facility) in a covered box enclosure to one side of the site and rubbish disposal was in a disorganised pile of boxes outside the front gate. We feel it is overpriced for the facility. The view was good, right onto the railway line and lovely countryside beyond.

dissappointed

Crockwell Park
must start with the good bit, it is handy for torquay and the surrounds. now the rest. no real worries with the toilet, it was clean. it is a plastic portaloo, sink and shower all in, so it is functional. if you want comfort it is not for you, you will need your own soap and paper as there are no provided basics. the site has two hard standing pitches at the top, or supposedly 5 grass down a very steep slope, we had to be towed out on a dewy morning. if anyone pitches incorrectly at the bottom, which happened on our stay then it becomes a 4 pitch grass slope, two fairly level, two needing lots of wedging. we moved from here on to a £16 a night site in kent...superb. at £20 crockwell i am afraid is not for us, very dissapointed. .

Relaxed place to stay

Crockwell Park
Have just returned from a holiday with our granddaughter and two dogs. Lovely site, easy access to Torquay, Paignton, Brixham, Dartmoor surrounding coastline and Dartmouth. Near to the town of Newton Abbott and Kingkerswell. Supermarkets close by. The site has a very relaxed feel to it. Lovely to see the horses and other animals running free. Very well priced with electric, TV point, WIFI, shower and toilet ( basic shower but was adequate, would not suit everyone but you can always use your own facility ). Also your own water tap. We would not hesitate to book the site again should we return to the area. Many thanks Michael and Rosemary

Conveniently sited for visiting the area - but could do with a tidy

Crockwell Park
The owners were helpful, friendly and responsive when making the booking and, although not present when we arrived, came round later to check that all was OK. The site is conveniently placed with good road access to local sites and towns of interest. Although the site has good views over the countryside, it does look a bit scruffy on arrival. There is no drive over waste disposal as mentioned on the website and the loo and shower (just the one) are in the same portaloo and use the same floor with just a curtain separating them. It would make the site more attractive if the building yard was fenced off..
