What no fish and chips

This is my favourite site and as always the wardens are excellent and helpful. The booking in procedure instilled confidence that adequate precautions are in place, in fact during my stay it seemed like there was no pandemic. Can't understand why the fish and chip van is not allowed on site as after all when you give your order you distance yourself, you can pay by card or cash. But all is not bad, if you miss your chips you can catch the van at Liverton post office on Fridays at 6 pm. Just 5 minutes from the site

Great site - One problem

I spent a very pleasant week at Stover. A great little site, and although no toilet block, given the current pandemic, that wasn't a problem. The problem, however, was pitch 37. It should be avoided at all costs, and any other pitches that are under a pine tree. Unfortunately it was the only one available when I arrived. It wasn't just the continual machine gun rattle of the pine cone seed falling on the caravan roof, 24 hours a day, but the mess it made of the caravan. The pine sap combined with rain and sun left the bodywork severely stained. After trying various cleaning products, and white spirit and Gunk, which had no effect, I spent five hours and a whole bottle of T Cut to attempt to remove it. It seemed to work but there are still some residual streaks on the paintwork. I haven't been able to tackle the roof yet, which is completely brown! A lovely week, but that did tend to spoil it a bit.

Good to be back - no concerns

Lucky enough to get a timed arrival slot for the 4th July (applicable for first day only I think). Booking in procedure very smooth and the wardens very welcoming and professional. Much thought had gone into the way of working on site for everyone to stay safe and enjoy themselves. Very relaxed atmosphere on site and the members were noticeably friendly and respectful of circumstances. The site and local attractions have been documented elsewhere. A very well kept and enjoyable site with the added bonus of a good dog walk. I particularly liked the opportunity to pre-book a pitch, it saves chasing around the site looking for an available pitch.

Just as good as ever

One of our favourite sites. First visit since lockdown and as previous reviewer indicated, a few changes in the arrangements, but nothing to preclude an enjoyable few days spent here. Always savour a leisurely stroll around the lake next door in the Country Park. Thanks to the wardens for managing it all so well in difficult times.

Chudders back again to great site

after a long wiat due to covoronavirus like many others pleased to get the motorhome out again. Good choice to go once again to Stover. Easy site to social dictance especially as we always use our own facilities and no toilet block etc on this site. This looks like the first review of this site after re opening. Some things have changed a bit as expected. Toilet disposal and water facilities have a queuing area to maintain social distancing but been here several days and only had to wait a couple of minutes once even though the site is pretty full. Made a mistake when choosing a pitch, initially picked a pitch with purple marker and had not read instruction hat it was a seasonal pitch, entirely my fault. Warden came over as I was setting up and politely pointed out my mistake. He even helped me to choose and move to another pitch. Booking in procedure is different. We paid by credit card by phone the day before we arrived although I think you can pull up outside reception but ring them on the number outside and give details over the phone. One warden will then come out with a pack and hand through your window. Have to say the booking in procedure is much better and quicker with no likelyhood of crowded reception office. Quite happy to pay the day before arrival, perhaps this should be the norm in future. Makes life so much easier on arrival for us and the wardens. The wardens are great on this site and some of the most helpful we have come across. Under the current circumstances they have a difficult job to do with all the new arrangements and seem to have coped well. My thanks to them Will we return, of course we weill..

Love this site!

The site wardens at Stover are helpful and keep the place looking incredible.This is the most well-maintained site we have ever stayed on - including non-club sites. Its very nicely laid out, plenty of room on all awning pitches. The site is surrounded by woods, and although next to Stover Country Park it has its own gorgeous mini dog walk in woods with a stream running through it - dogs are allowed off the lead and it's fabulous for the nosy little dogs! The site itself is tranquil but It is off a main road- if you don't live near traffic - we suggest you pitch up at the far end of the site, away from the entrance where there is nothing but squirrels to distract you if you want to get away from it all. - the benefits of the location include quick access to Dartmoor, Arts and Antiques trails of Bovey Tracey, Ashburton, the market Towns of Totnes and Newton Abbot and not far from the beaches on the South Devon Coast. It's also opposite Stover Golf Club and Trago which has an activity and fairground style amusment park to keep kids happy for hours at circa £5 for the day - inc peacocks. For us, the benefits of the location far outweigh traffic and lack of shower/toilet block. The fish and chip van on the Friday evenings is the best fish and chips we've had from a pop-up! TV signal quality like anywhere surrounded by tall trees, takes a bit of wrangling with your own aerial - sometimes we get forty channels others over 120, there is an aeriel booster in the centre of the site as well.

Clean but noisy

Stayed here for three nights mid July. The wardens are friendly and the site is very well kept and spotless. It is described as tranquil in the handbook but I didn’t find it so. It is adjacent to a very busy road with heavy traffic which builds up from around 5am and continues till well after 10pm. Not one I’ll visit again.
