A lovely welcoming site

We stayed for just one night and what a lovely spacious site it is. Very friendly welcoming staff who keep the site immaculate. No toilets or showers. A lovely short dog walk area where they can be let off lead and the bonus is it isn't muddy as the paths are covered with wood chips. Yes it is by a busy road but dont let that put you off. We were on a non awning pitch and were closest to the road but it did not bother us in the slightest. Unless you live in the middle of nowhere with no noise around at all then you should give this lovely site a visit. Plenty to do in the area with Stover Country Park right next door. We would not hesitate to stay again. I will be putting a very short video tour of the site on youtube.

A well run site.

The squirrels (tree rats) were under my motorhome, but no damage done, suggest pest control. Will visit again as it was a well run site.

A great site for motorhomers

We stayed on this site April/May for 3 weeks and really enjoyed our stay. We come back every year at the same time and we have been lucky to get the same pitch. This is our kind of site,no facilities, just electric hook-up and hardstanding,makes for a reasonably priced stay. We do not find traffic noise too extreme, we did get the odd noise from clay pigeon shooting but this only seemed to annoy the dogs on site. Possibly a pitch near the road would be noisy. Thereissuch a lot to do from this site if you love walking. Easy to get up on Dartmoor if you take the bus to Bovey Tracey. Lots of walks around Bovey Tracey.. A nice walk from stover off road to Newton Abbott is a must and get the bus back. There is a nice café stop part way on the walk where refreshments can be obtained. Plenty of places to visit using the bus to Newton Abbot and then travelling down to the coast.. We never find it a problem walking to Trago using the road from the roundabout. You just have to use common sense, be aware of the fast moving traffic and be prepared to step onto the grass verge if necessary. Also wear sensible shoes as the grass verge can be a little narrow and undulating. If you are worried about using this road there is another way through the golf course which comes out onto a quiet country lane which you turn right on and it takes you to the back entrance of Trago. although this is a much longer way. We understand that the road into Trago is being changed and it may be that direct access for vehicles will come direct from just near the A38 roundabout . There are plenty of supermarkets in Newton Abbot,as well as the co-op at trago.. In the town centre is Asda, Tescos is just outside the town,a short distance from Tescos is Lidl. A new Aldi store is being built not far from the train station and a bit further up the road is Sainsburys. All these supermarkets are served by a bus service.

The Lacals do Local camping

We must have driven past Stover a million times as we only live in Plymouth. Not put off by the distance 😃 Or lack of toilet block , we decided to give it a go,as we are normally CL types. The access is easy and the hard standings are nice and level. The country park was another first for us, and very enjoyable. The local co-op was handy for food and alcohol re supply as was the Shell petrol station for fuel. Yep, a bit of road noise from the adjacent roads ,but off set by the extremely well kept site and friendly helpful staff.

Lovely site - shame about the road noise and clay pigeon shooting

We booked this site for 12 days but knew on arrival we couldn't possibly put up with the constant road noise 24/7 although we did stay for 6 days after which we moved on to a very peaceful CL with sea views for the rest of our stay....Bliss! There is nothing in the club write up to suggest there is a problem with road noise although it is mentioned in a couple of reviews. We pitched as far away as we could at the far end of the site but still experienced noise from both the A38 and the A382. Not sure where the people who describe this site as peaceful and tranquil were situated. If peace and quiet is high on your agenda, this site is NOT for you. Shame really because it is a lovely site and the wardens are very helpful, it just needs to be somewhere else. As already mentioned in another review there is also the clay pigeon shooting which unnerved our dogs. Stover Country Park is very nice but if you have dogs beware, they are not allowed off lead around the lake and water courses which doesn't leave a lot where they can safely be let off lead. Our dogs found an open farm gate in the country park that had been left wide open onto a road! 10 out of 10 for the campsite and wardens.

A Delightful site

Access to this site, even with the largest of outfits, couldn't really be easier. A wide entrance gives access direct off the A382. The site has no toilet block, and the friendly wardens are keen to point this out on arrival (do some people not check the details before booking?) The site is well kept and is beautifully set surrounded by mature trees. Service points are conveniently located and were kept nice and clean and tidy. Excellent 4g coverage on EE and the TV booster system worked perfectly, picking up a wide range of channels. The site has a good dog walk, but longer walks are available in the adjacent country park, with a pedestrian gate just a few yards from the entrance. Road noise in unavoidable. The Devon Expressway gives off a constant background hum and boy racers opening up their throttle on the adjacent A382 would bother some visitors. A large Co-op at Trago Mills is available for provisions just 3/4 mile away.

Lovely, quiet site

This is one of our favourite sites for a quick getaway. The site is spotlessly clean and well cared for, with Stover Country Park a 5 minute walk away. The pitches are mostly level, well maintained and feel larger than some sites we have stayed on. The site has a lot of wildlife in and around it and quite often you can be visited by friendly ducks and squirrels. The only reason I have rated it down for families are the lack of toilet block, showers, play area and laundry. For us, this is not an issue and probably makes the site more appealing as it is never overrun. The nearby town of Bovey Tracey is lovely with some independent shops and a Coop and Tesco Express. There is also a large Coop at Trago Mills, a 5 minute drive away. Newton Abbott is a larger town with large Asda and usual shops /banks you would expect in most towns. Torquay, Paignton, Brixham and Dartmouth are all less than an hour drive from here. We return here a few times over the season and even after only a couple of nights genuinely feel like we have had a break.

Wonderful site

This is our last day here. We have been extremely lucky to have had lovely warm weather, no rain at all. It's a good site with easy access from the A38, no single track roads. The site is kept in fine condition. The wardens are great. We didn't miss the toilet or shower block as we used our own bathroom. It quiet here just the birds singing and here at the far end of the site we count hear any road noise. Nice to see the ducks wandering round the vans and the squirrels in the trees. This is our 2nd visit of 9 nights and won't be the last. The dog loved it too because he was able to walk from the site into the HUGE STOVER COUNTRY Park.

Peaceful week at Stover

We had to postpone our arrival for two days due to the windy weather but on our arrival on the Sunday we were met by Kath with a smile and details of where we could pitch. Access to the site is easy off the main road into Newton Abbot. Leaving the site and turning right can be a bit of a challenge with a caravan as it is a busy road. We stayed for 8 days which, despite being near a main road was fairly quiet from traffic noise. The only thing that shattered the peace and quiet for us was that there is a clay-pigeon shooting range nearby and operates on a Thursday and Saturday with shooting going on for most of the day. Other than that we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and we will return. For us the site was ideal, easy to access, good clean service points, no toilets or shower, but we have on-board facilities in our caravan. Lots of wildlife in and around the site, visiting mallard ducks, Grey Squirrels visiting the pitch, and lots of small birds flitting around visiting the bird feeders set up around the site. Tawny Owls calling at night too. There are no facilities for children on site but there is a lovely Country Park adjacent to the site. Although it was quite busy during our stay there was little if any noise coming from the park. There is a nicely stocked information room and Kath and her partner are on hand if you have any queries. Within 4 miles there are three major supermarkets, Asda, Sainsbury and Tesco and a little further out is Morrison's. Close by the site is Highbridge Caravans if you need some assistance with your van or have forgotten something. There is also a mobile engineer who will visit the site if you need one, even on a Saturday afternoon. All in all this is a site that we will return to for exploring more of south Devon and Dartmoor.
