This site is fantastic, very clean, well organised and the people are extremely helpful and charming. The location is excellent with loads to do and see. We are walkers but my wife was not well and we had to abandon walking but still had a lot of days out in very interesting NT properties. When I had to arrange a... More

Dear Bill B so glad you enjoyed your visit to Dornafield, we all try to make the experience special for every guest. The WIFI has become the bain of my life!

Just returned from our first visit to Dornafield . We were not disappointed. The site is immaculate with the grass cut like bowling green. The facilities block is amongst the cleanest we have ever found on any site. We stayed on Buttermeadow and had the largest serviced pitch we have ever had , we had room at both sides of... More

We are at Dornafield now and even the rain hasn't dampened our enthusiasm. We usually avoid larger campsites as you can tend to feel on top of everyone else. This place though has large pitches with green spaces in between so you feel you have your own space. It's lovely and quiet though everyone we meet is friendly and smiles.... More

A friend recommended Dornafield to me one day and after grilling them thoroughly about every aspect of a caravan park they didn't give me one negative - so that made us decide to 'try' Dornafield for a long weekend and now we wouldn't go anywhere else! We love everything about it, the super sized pitches, how clean everywhere is, the... More

Hi and thank you so much for the very kind comments about Dornafield. After such a terrible winter with constant rain and wind we were all so relieved when a week before opening the sun came out. These has given us the opportunity to clean up all the leaves, cut the grass, and paint nearly everything ready for the new... More

Stayed here for a few days while touring Devon. Can't fault it really. Beautiful place and setting. Great pitches. Facilities are the best we have encountered. The dog off lead fields are brilliant. Our dog loved it. Nice walk into Denbury and lovely pub called the Union Inn. The only complaint I have is that I didn't enjoy our next... More

Stayed here for 2 nights on way from Essex to a week in a camper-van in Cornwall. Convenient, as we have friends in Newton Abbot. Superb old reception buildings including a well-stocked shop, information room and games room, and a warm welcome from owner, Peter Dewhurst and his team. The pitches were well kept and spacious and included hook-up, water... More

Free wifi that does not work - regardless of how busy the site is. Need wifi forget it! Regardless of owners responses a little investment is needed for wifi at a cost.
