Such a tranquil site, loved it.

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

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.

Other site owners could learn alit from this site. 5 star pluss.

dont be put off by the industrial site type entrance , you pass through this and turn into the most beautiful CL site. Immaculately kept Small pond in the site and a much bigger one above , which we were told our dogs could swim in. Dogs don’t have to be teathered , just under control. The owners have a black lab who pops by for a chat . Everything is right about this site, the grass is cut, the waste bins are all built into cupboards, no traffic, no aircraft, just birds singing. There is a shower and loo for your use kept locked and a key given to you on arrival. They are modern and spotless. The owners are just lovely people . And work hard to provide a wonderful environment. Only thing you could improve in is to fence off the view of the caravan storage area but when the shrubs grow up you won’t see it. I highly recommend this site . It’s the best kept one we’ve been on in 20 years .

With 10 hook ups this really is a commercial site

First our three moans. This is not a CL. We booked for the CL but found on arrival that the CL field, with its 5 hard standings, was full. We were located in the field that you drive through to get to the CL field. Here there are 5 more hook ups so it’s not an overflow site. This caravan site, therefore, takes 10 vans not 5 and as it was almost full most nights it should be considered a commercial site not a CL. Our second moan is the approach. The lanes are very narrow, winding, steep and most passing places are only big enough for cars. If you were to meet another vehicle towing a trailer then you could be in a lot of trouble. There was a lot of straw by the roadside suggesting that just a few weeks ago this access would have been very busy with tractors and trailers. Our third gripe is about Harvey the dog. He’s a very nice dog but he’s allowed to roam the site and seemed to arrive at our van every time we lit the BBQ. Not a good example when club members are meant to keep dogs on a lead. Also, when you can’t see your dog you can’t see where it’s doing ‘stuff’. Now the good bits. Very nice helpful owners, lovely surroundings, excellent toilet and shower block but to pay another £1 for a shower seemed a little tight when you’ve already paid a hefty £18/night. The owners were also very understanding when we had to return home early. However, we won’t be back for the three reasons mentioned.
