Short Break

This is a well kept site which is easy to access, the owners were extremely helpfull there are good views across the fields. where you can exercise your dog. Depending on what you look for from a holiday we found the down side was the noise from the adjacent road, plus walking along it or cycling would not be easy. The nearest shops are four miles away at Tiverton, where you can also combine a pleasant walk along the canal.

A lovely little site.

We stayed here for 3 nights whilst touring around. Found it with ease off directions in book. No problems getting on to site with a wide entrance. Pitches aren’t particularly flat So we were glad we had a 4x4 to help us back into our pitch. Our pitch was hard standing and we put our awning on the grass which caused a slope which left us with a giant step out of the caravan into the awning. No problem to us but maybe we should have put awning on gravel and moved caravan further over. Beautiful views on sunny days from caravan window. Easy access to all attractions. Lovely friendly owner. Dogs had a fabulous field where they could run and play ball. Our only niggle was the road at the back of the caravans was a little bit of a race track which seemed to be quite load. All in all a good stay and would certainly come back if in the area again.

A relaxing break

We stayed 11 nights. Unfortunately the owners were away so didn’t get local knowledge . We had the families phone number if any problems occurred and the rubbish was cleared regularly. We missed the deer probably scared away by our dogs. The site was lovely and relaxing, I chose a grass pitch even though it had been raining but the ground was good and I didn’t experience any problems. Being able to walk the dogs in the two fields was also a great help. We visited the tourist information centre for the area details. The horse drawn canal trip was a must and didn’t disappoint. Knighthayes and the walk around the woods another enjoyable outing. We did park and ride at Exeter visiting the cathedral and exploring the waterside. If we are in the area again I wouldn’t hesitate to come back. The site was easy to access with Tiverton close by for the market days plus shops and Morrison’s and Tesco’s in the area too.

Very Pleasant CL

Stayed 4 nights at Hillside. This South facing site allows sun all day and country views. The pitches are very well spaced with 3 hardstandings. Nice short grass. The site owner gave good information on What to see and Where to eat !! Easy short drive to Tiverton. Thankyou Mrs Lashbrook for letting us stay

Super CL

Have stayed at Hillside several times whilst visiting family in the area and am booked again for September. The views are lovely -we've seen deer in the field across the valley. The pitches have plenty of space and there's also room for the children to play without disturbing others. The owners are always welcoming and accommodating. Facilities are easily accessed - the chemical waste point is the easiest I've ever used in 20+ years of caravanning! A lovely countryside CL yet only 10 minutes into Tiverton for shopping.

Could not ask for more

The Site and Owners totally exceeded our expectations, clean well organized facilities, a lovely field with nice short grass with five pitches, two of which were hardstanding, nice and quiet with country views, say so more but keep it a secret!

Good site if completely dry!

So we booked this site just 2 days before we arrived. When we arrived we were told which spot was ours, which was a hard standing pitch but you needed to cross grass to get onto it and the ground was like a swamp. Obviously they can’t be held responsible for the weather but we weren’t allowed on the nearest one, despite it being empty. In fact the whole site was empty - we were the only ones there. The site is on a hill, and water runs down, so even on the 2nd pitch the ground around us was a complete mud. We were told not to put our car on the grass which meant walking back and forward from the entrance - but to be honest I am glad we didn’t put the car in the grass (we moved the caravan on the mover). Unfortunately 1 day into our stay we had a call from home about problems with our house and had to leave. The site owner gave us back less than half of the money we paid, even though we had been on site less than 20 hours! They didn’t refuse anyone else as we were the only ones there, so ended up paying nearly £30 for a 20 hour stay. Left a very bad taste given the problems we had at home. Won’t be returning.

Comment from the Club

Many thanks for your review. The CL owner has been in touch as she works very hard to ensure everyone has a wonderful time on their site and do their utmost to help and assist guests and maintain their site to excellent standards. At the time of your stay there was flooding in many parts of the country with some sites even having to evacuate guests but fortunately the CL Site has hardstandings available to cope with the weather. The CL owner allocated you the second hardstanding pitch when she greeted you on arrival to try and make life easier for you. The first hardstanding pitch had previously been reserved for a motorhome which arrived the next day after your early departure. The distance from the car to the pitch is approximately 20 steps and they need to ensure the grass is not churned up which would cause further issues in bad weather. They refunded part of your booking when you advised you were leaving early as a gesture of goodwill and their booking terms are communicated to guests before arrival on site. An offer was also made that the booking could be taken later in the season. I hope this addresses any misunderstanding and we are sorry you had to leave the site early and your enjoyment of the site was impeded by the bad weather the UK was experiencing.
