We visited in early October as part of a VW camper weekend. The site itself is vast, clean and from what I saw, very well managed. The food at the restaurant was basic, but cheap and tasty, as was there ale! The main attraction here though is all activities at the lower end of the site near the entrance. A... More

This is the perfect place to bring hyper-active kids, if not all kids! All the play areas are made of wood with sawdust underneath so totally environmentally friendly. I've never camped there as I lived so close as a child. We would make a summer day of it, as there were water play areas for all ages, and being right... More

Returned from a great weekend at the annual Octoberfest vw festival. Weather was fairly kind and we had a lovely large electric hook up pitch. The grass was short and the pitch had gravel path to it as well as well maintained on site roads. The club house is lovely as is the Cornish rattler cider! Food was nice we... More

We didn't know about this place. Me, my husband and 17 month old son were exploring the area by car. This place is amazing and well worth the very reasonable entry price. Our son was to young for a lot of it but can't wait till he's older so we can make full use of it. It's beautifully kept and... More

We went there last weekend (September 21, 2014) with our children. I checked their website before the drive (about 1 hour from our house), and saw that the park and activities were open and available as usual. However, upon arrival, we were told that the high ropes and zip wire were closed for the day because of a school group... More

Another amazing holiday ar River Dart, I adore this campsite-its beautiful, spotlessly clean, staff are always friendly and the kids love it. This was our fourth annual stay at the park, each time we leave we book for the following year and add an extra day. Looking forward to next year!

Plenty of activities for the children, to keep them occupied. Fantastic place on a sunny day. I only did a day trip however the camping facilities looked very good.

This is an ideal place, and virtually unique, for a wedding or similar event. At the end of August my son got married here. We had exclusive use of the main house and coach house. It meant that the immediate family, including the bride and groom, could stay in the best bedrooms in the main house, other guests could stay... More
