Very quiet tranquil site

The Meadows
This a lovely site, very quiet, we will definitely put it on our list to return Pitches spaced out, site kept very tidy, met on arrival and everything explained As others said lane narrow, it would be easier if the hedges were cut at the beginning on the lane in. We were in a motorhome and we were lucky enough not to meet anything The site is worth negotiating the narrow lane very pleasant

Quiet peaceful stay

The Meadows
We had a weeks stay here and the site is certainly peaceful and quiet. The site itself is large, with plenty of space inbetween pitches, with a lovely lake all of which are kept very neat and tidy. The owners do provide storage but this is screened from view and you do pass through another small camping area called The Bothy on the approach. You also pass through an area of the farm where there are a few commercial units but this in no way impeded or marred our enjoyment of the site. As others have said there is a very well appointed shower and toilet block. Kept immaculately clean and you are given a key to gain private access, this is just a short 5 minute stroll back up through the approach road. The shower is an additional £1 for 6 minutes of hot water. The roads this to site are incredibly narrow, and certainly not for the feint hearted, there are few passing places and most would not accommodate a car and caravan so you are left to hope that any oncoming traffic are only cars and that they will do the reversing! I would certainly heed the owners advice of timing your arrival to miss the lunchtime traffic visiting the local pub, 'The Linney', (which by the way is an excellent place to eat and not to be missed but remember to book in advance, it is incredibly popular). On the day we left the site a fellow caravanner was also leaving, we went first and when we reached the top of the narrow lane, before it meets up with the main road, we actually stopped, rang the other people waiting to come up to give them the all clear, and stopped any traffic from going down the lane until they too had reached the top, this worked well and certainly eased any traffic congestion. In summary, this is a quiet, peaceful, tranquil site, well looked after in lovely grounds, and with good facitlites and close to many touorist attractions and places to visit. If we are ever in the area again we would certainly return.

Peaceful Oasis!

The Meadows
Wonderfully peaceful and relaxing country views. Lots of space with good gravel road and hardstanding. TV reception and phone signal are both good. Lovely private lakes adjacent with abundant wildlife. There’s a dedicated immaculately presented shower and two loos in a small custom built block a little stroll away, with six minutes of hot water for a pound coin. We liked it so much that we are returning for a further stay this year, and recommend the site highly. The tucked away location does mean a mile or two of narrow lanes, and although there are some passing places, I’d say that it’s not really for novices. Having said that, if you avoid the lunchtime traffic for the local thatched tavern, you would be by unlucky if you needed to select reverse gear. Seasonal until the end of October, but offering year round storage and more.

Site deep in a valley

The Meadows
It was very difficult to find this Site and a lot of plastic greenhouses with broken sails on the terrain with various compagnies. Activity gave no rest. To shower we had to pay and that is was we as Dutch campers not used to.

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.
