A nice wee site

I stayed here twice this October, for 2 nights each. The first time I came, I was not familiar with the checking-in process, but it was less of a bother the second time (having to phone when I'm looking at the office). As others have stated, this site is large enough to warrant full facilities, but this was not a problem for me. The site is well kept and clean. The one major flaw was the lack of hand sanitisers at the recycling/bin/septic tank facilities. I know it is my responsibility to provide my own, but most places, especially in the retail sector, provide them. The written notes I was given said there were some on site, but apart from outside the main office, I couldn't see any. I also find it useful to have a bus stop just outside the main entrance. I love going to Newton Abbot for the day, and as I have a motorhome, it is easier to use public transport. Finally, it is located conveniently next to Stover Country Park, where I enjoyed a daily walk. I look forward to my next visit to Stover.

Immaculate site

We use this Stover site at least once a year and have just returned from a short stay I have to congratulate the wardens on the immaculate condition of the site all hardstandings were well kept and weed free the waste bin area's are clean with bins clearly marked for recycling the condition of the whole site is a credit to the wardens. There are no toilet facilities at this site and I hope there never will be, its a relaxing site to stay on with easy access to coast and moors. Well done wardens its very much appreciated.

Handy location

Stover site is really easy to find, just off A38. It is located on the edge of a country park with lots of footpaths and a lake. We found a pitch near the centre of the site which was lovely and sunny, but others could be quite shady. There is a co-op within a mile, and we cycled, although the road was quite busy. We found a national cycle route which is accessed through the country park (you just have to wheel the bikes until you reach the tarmac path) and it is easy to access Newton Abbot or Bovey Tracey. The route follows an old canal so is fairly level when you get to it, although it is a good downhill to get to it (and therefore an uphill on the way back). It was well kept and clean, but no toilet block, which we knew beforehand and weren’t looking for anyway. The only thing we found was that the A38 could always be heard in the background - probably not a problem if you live in a town, but we’re not used to it so found it quite noisy. The country park is quite peaceful and it is worth following the signs to the Canadian war memorial (especially as the sun is going down).

Full Marks to the wardens during this difficult time

Stover is one of the cleanest and tidiest CAMC sites we have ever stayed on. The wardens gave clearly worked very hard to achieve the high standards they gave achieved. A very big thankyou:

Noise through the night, toilets.

Stayed here for two nights Pros - Great location off A38. Great dog walk. Fantastic park next door. Cons - No toilets for such a large site (21 century ?). 5 van site understood this site can't understand. If your pitch is towards the entrance of the site there's quite a bit of road noise all night. Suppose this is the down side to having such a convenient location of an A road.

One poor pitch on a fabulous site

I was allocated pitch 35 (without awning) and this rather spoilt what is otherwise a fabulous site. Why did it spoil it? Well, pitch 35 is on the edge of the site and had 3 distinct disadvantages. 1. It slopes strongly to the rear, which meant reversing onto levelling blocks, not too big a problem. 2. It is totally shaded by a number of beautiful large trees and did not get any sun at all at any time of day so I jealously watched everyone else basking in the sun while I sat outside with a fleece on, once again not the end of the world. 3 and a big 3. The pitch is right on the dog walk and dogs naturally cant wait so they start pooing right outside your van (everyone picked up), whilst they are pooing the owners are gawking into the van until a happy wave embarrasses them to turn away. So in summary sat in the shade watching the dogs poo, owners gawk and worried the van was going to slide of the blocks in the night. Did I complain, no, well why. I was grateful to get the very last pitch on the day I arrived, I still had all the benefits of friendly knowledgeable staff, I was on a clean and secure site with well maintained motorhome facilities and I was in a great location, most of all the 4 nights were incredibly competitively priced. In my view pitch 35 should be taken out of service until a hedge can be planted and matured to separate it from the dog walk. I will definitely use the site again just be adamant i wont go on number 35 Blue.

Just What We Needed

This was our first holiday in our campervan and since lockdown. The site was lovely and peaceful, although full for the bank holiday. Everywhere was spotlessly clean. We had decided we would use our own facilities so this site worked perfectly for us. We had a lovely chilled few days taking advantage of the beautiful walks accessible directly from the site.

Fabulous for dogs

Our first time out in the motorhome and what a fabulous site to choose for a first outing with the dogs. The caravan site is directly next door to the country park with miles upon miles of walks. The dogs and ourselves loved it. The site was quiet, with limited facilities due to the pandemic, but this was to be expected and fine for us. The wardens were very friendly. We had to ask to place the moterhome away from the 'spot', due to the awning otherwise not fitting the space and the warden was fine when I explained the situation (especially as we were due a downpour). We will definately be back to this lovely site.

Right next to stover park, excellent location

I love this site, the location for me is excellent because it is next to stover park, it can be a little noisy if u end up by the road and there are currently no toilets. They have a little wooded dog walk on the river and my dog loves it, i sit on the bench while she paddles. Close to trago.
