Amazing Sunsets

The Meadows
Friendly welcome from the moment we arrived and we enjoyed every moment of our three night stay. As campsites go, this is an extremely well looked after site. Everything from the toilet and showers through to the ponds are in great condition. And the sunsets are some of the best we've ever seen in the UK. Its ideally located for an English Riviera experience. We visited Torbay, Paignton, Brixham and Dartmouth during our stay. There's no shortage of places to visit and things to do. Be mindful that this is a popular area, even outside of school holiday time, and roads and car parks were very busy. The local roads, especially around the site, are not for the faint of heart. They are only just a car width at best in many places. This includes from the point you turn off of St Marychurch Road into Connybear Lane and past the Linny (Pub) to the site. Keep you fingers crossed that you don't meet oncoming traffic especially if towing a caravan.

A great little site

The Meadows
We had 5 nights here not having visited the area for a long time. The site is pristine and the owners are so friendly and helpful, a first class detailed handout given to you on arrival and regular checks by the owners to make sure everything is ok. We used the local taxi service on several occasions and found them very friendly, reliable and reasonably priced. The final approach roads are a little narrow but breath in and you'll be ok!

Such a tranquil site, loved it.

The Meadows
We stayed here 2 weekends running when we were down to explore the area. Such a warm welcome by Helen and Jon, the pitches were all hardstanding and well spaced out and such beautiful surroundings. The set up on site is great and all facilities are very well maintained and clean. Even the toilet waste was easy and ideal set up. We loved our stay and would highly recommend this site. Some roads are narrow on approach so just do your research and get best access to site... But the time spent on such a tranquil site will be worth it. Thanks Helen and John for making our time on site so welcoming and peaceful.

A hidden gem CL

The Meadows
Our 10 day holiday staying at the Meadows CL was excellent :) The owner Helen met us at the entrance and walked down to the CL field to show us the pitched. All 5 hardstanding with room for the car beside and an awning on the grass. Great views from these spacious electric pitches. Water and Elsan within easy reach. There are a number of dustbins (emptied and new bags in daily) to allow for recycling. The welcome pack explains the split. The toilets and showers were currently closed for C19 safety (we were aware of this before booking). We had a water leak - Helen to the rescue with mop, bucket and towels. Thanks Helen :) Pub in walking distance. 10 minutes drive to Babbacombe. Best route (the typical area local roads are narrow) is provided on the website (http://meadowscaravansite.co.uk/) or contact Helen.
