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 with excellent facilities

Dornafield Touring Park
We’ve just returned from a seven night stay at Dornafield. As previously mentioned, the site is down a very narrow lane, but no worse than many sites we’ve visited. We had a fully serviced pitch, number 40, in Blackrock Copse. This was a hardstanding with our own fresh water, waste water, toilet disposal, EHU and dustbin adjacent on the offside. Some pitches have facilities on the nearside, but there doesn’t seem to be any rules about pitching in any direction that suits you (some vans pitched nose in, others across the pitch). Our pitch had a view across to the dog walk and field beyond (you don’t appreciate the hilly nature when looking at the site plan). We had a walk around the large lower area (Buttermeadow) and the grassy Orchard, and realised we were in the best part to suit us. One of the play areas was directly behind us but, being just outside the school holidays, we didn’t even notice it was there. There is an information centre on site, as well as a room with table tennis, snooker and other games available. You can order newspapers, bread and other items from the local bakery in the site shop, and the farm shop and butcher at the nearby garden centre are good. There are fish and chips on site Monday and Friday evenings. We only tried the chips to accompany our own food, and they were nicely cooked. The shower and toilet facilities are spotless and modern, and apart from the showers being push button, were excellent. The washing up area and laundry looked clean and well maintained, however we didn’t use them. We enjoyed our week at Dornafield and would recommend it, particularly for caravans (which were by far the majority of visitors), but Blackrock Copse is the nicer, less crowded area in our opinion.

Great Site But....

Dornafield Touring Park
This is a lovely site. Clean and well maintained. The staff are really friendly and the site & facilities kept clean. The showers are however, quite dated, and reminded me of my school days (rinsing shampoo from ​my hair and trying to find the button on the wall to restart the water, without getting soap in my eyes.) The site is in a good location for visiting the South Devon area, however the road in and out is very narrow, and not the best access for larger caravans (we live in Cornwall so I don't make this comment lightly. We're used to narrow roads and tight corners.) For us though, the biggest disappointment was the lack of thought for children. There are signs everywhere stating No Rollerblades. No Scateboards. No scooters etc... And while there is a very large dog exercise area, there is no area for the children to safely play ball games. There is a very small (and old looking) play "Park" in a wooded area. Made for little ones. Not for children older than about 7. We visited with our 12 year old, and there was nowhere to play badminton or Boules, or football etc. She couldn't use her very quiet electric scooter. And we resorted to doing crossword puzzles with her, in our "down time." All in all a lovely site with lovely staff. But we won't return because of the lack of a suitable area for slightly older children to play and run off some energy. This site really would benefit from a large, open area for ball games at the very least.

Clean and tidy with facilities on each pitch

Dornafield Touring Park

Great location. Large busy site, Recycling facilities great and toilets large and clean (although a little dated). EHU, water and own waste on each pitch. Pitches are quite tight and if you have an awning, you will have to park you car elsewhere or across the front of the pitch. Access to site down a narrow but not busy road.

Rocket propelled lawnmowers

Dornafield Touring Park
Just back from 10 days at Dornafield and we loved it. Nice pitch, facilities were excellent, the wardens we met seemed very friendly and helpful. Obviously everything is different because of you know what, but we thought the site had the balance of extra precautions whilst still allowing everybody to make the most of their holiday just about spot on. If you want a really good meal out, we can heartily recommend the Union Inn Denburgh, which is about 5 minutes from the site. Would cheerfully go back.

Great place to stay!!

Dornafield Touring Park
Just come back from a three night stay this month (October 2019) and what a wonderful site. Absolutely immaculate, facilities are the very best we have ever seen and such welcoming Wardens. Great little shop on site and we had some great money off vouchers on the back of our site map, which we took advantage of. Amazing, safe dog walking areas, which our two hounds loved. Must be our favourite site so far and will definitely be staying again. The area is incredible and our first visit to this part of Devon. Will definitely be back.
