Why stay here ...

Situated in a quiet valley and surrounded by beautiful countryside, Dornafield Touring Park also boasts a charming historic farmhouse which lends an atmosphere of days gone by. This charming caravan site truly comprises everything you could ask for in a family holiday break. With safe areas for your children to explore, it also comes with a well equipped play area, wendy house and fort. There are also plenty of activities for more mature visitors such as table tennis, a tennis court, darts and a pool table.

Just a short drive away from Dornafield Touring Park is the famous English Riviera of Torbay, with loads of scenic attractions to enjoy. If you turn your attentions inland you'll find that the rugged splendour of Dartmoor is well worth the visit. To the south west of the caravan site you can explore the Elizabethan Totnes on the River Dart, offering romantic, winding boat trips. The towns of Plymouth and Exeter are also within easy reach for all the conveniences you could wish for, and even golfers will not be disappointed with the challenging Dainton Park 18-hole golf course nearby.

Lovely site

We stayed in October 2016. A lovely site with fantastic fenced dog walk with pleasant views. The facilities were well maintained but cleaning of the shower block was below standard. Some of the wardens were unfriendly a smile or hello would have been nice, if you don't like your job then leave because a site is only as good as the wardens help make it. Great place to stay and I would visit again.

Fantastic stay

Just returned from 10 days at this site. Wardens and staff friendly and helpful. Our Pitch in Butter Meadow was a suitable size for our caravan and towing vehicle, and clearly marked with pitch number, so easy to find on arrival. Toilet and shower block were clean and a pleasure to use.  Laundry room was a distinct plus with washing machines, driers and an iron and ironing board.  Access road a bit narrow but plenty of passing spaces. Shop had adequate stock of essentials and fresh bread, rolls etc from local bakery could be ordered up to 4.30 the day before. Fish and chips available from Quarry Kitchen on site on Monday and Friday evenings - freshly cooked to order and worth the wait.  Overall an excellent site that we will stay at again.

We were looking forward to spending the last four nights of our holiday at Dornafield. The site itself is beautiful and very well maintained and the dog exercising field at Blackrock was brilliant. Unfortunately our first doubts of the friendliness uuof the staff, surfaced at the booking in stage - a smile is so welcoming but we didn't get one!

 

We had to ask the warden on duty if he would kindly dispose of some broken crockery for us (the result of a slight run in with a railway line en route) - again, his manner was unfriendly. Each time we saw him, not once did he say good morning or smile. The wardens can make or break your holiday. On another note, the wardens seemed to use the site as a race track and unlike usual Caravan Club sites, caravans and cars seemed to park as best they could in the space provided - cars were parked quite higgledy piggledy in places. We were disappointed at such a beautiful site otherwise - we do not think we would return to Dornafield.

Access to the site is via a single track road with passing places for approximately half a mile. This can be a little tricky if you meet an oncoming vehicle. However, the site is immaculate and well-maintained with two excellent dog-walking areas - one is enclosed with close-cut grass and the other has close-cut pathways through long grass and wild flowers. Good fish and chips are available on site twice a week. We encountered two problems which would make us think twice about returning: the pitch we were allocated was too small (despite providing the length of the van when booking) which resulted in the tow-bar being right up to the roadside (it should have been 1 metre back). We asked if we could move to a larger pitch as we would be there for just over two weeks but were told that this wasn't possible, even though there were many pitches unoccupied at the time. We noticed that a number of smaller vans had been allocated longer pitches and some other caravans which arrived after us were experiencing the same difficulty as we had. The irony is that, after two or three days, the site owner stopped in his buggy and he commented that we were too close to the road. We explained that we had asked to move and he apologised and asked if we would like another pitch. With the caravan set up and the awning in place, we declined. The second problem – which we considered far more serious – related to the speed at which many of the service vehicles (including golf buggies, tractors and ride-on lawn mowers) travelled around the site. They ‘zipped’ around at speeds which often far exceeded the 5mph limit. It was interesting to note that a number of other caravanners commented on this, and we would certainly not consider taking our grandchildren to this site because of the safety aspect. A large number of the residents had seasonal permits and caravans are stored at the site and towed back and forth as required by a tractor. Unfortunately, the tractor driver also drove rather quickly and seemed to have little regard for the caravans he was towing along ground which could sometimes be a little uneven. We hope that the owners will take steps to resolve these issues as it really is a lovely site.

Tricky Access

Site very clean and tidy but a bit regimented.We were told where to pitch unfortunately under trees, constant drips.Hard standing a bit tight for large units no room for our awning, not allowed on grass off the standing.We tow a car this also not allowed next to motorhome except by special request. The site has many seasonal pitches full of regulars we felt excluded. The access is via a very narrow lane not really suitable for larger units. All in all a good site for solo car drivers who leave their vans for the season not for tourers
