with a large young family (5 kids) we normally avoid caravan parks now due to needing more space. Waterside is the one exception as it is such an excellent location and park in Torbay which really makes it worthwhile. The caravan seemed a little bit basic considering we had upgraded, however it was extremely clean.... They had just shampood the... More

We chose this site because of the pictures in the Brochure and online showing the great sea views and the heated outdoor pool. We used our money off voucher from park holidays which we were given as an apology for the diabolical holiday we had the previous year at Riviera Bay Brixham. On arrival at Waterside we were surprised to... More

Thank you for your comments Lee H, they have been duly noted. With regards to the brochure images of Waterside, yes we do show the fantastic views from the park (and some images of the facilities) however, we do not say that these are the views you would see from our caravans, nor do we say that there is parking...

It's nothing wrong with the holiday park, the caravan is brilliant. However, it is the entertainment manager Richi who there was problems with. He was very rude and very ignorant. He was taking the piss out of a person who had learning disabilities and was being rude and horrible to the person. Writing S.O.S on a white flag showing it... More

Hi amylouiseevans170 thank you for these comments. I have already taken this issue up with Richi and others concerned with the Entertainment team. I understand that Richi has been and spoken to you directly and cleared this issue up. Richi would never knowingly or deliberately upset any of our guests.

We have stayed here in 2013 & 2014 in the same premier caravan. On each occasion we have been impressed with it's comfort and cleanliness. The location of the park is ideal to enjoy exploring the coastal path and other places in the Torbay area.We found John and the staff at the park very helpful and we look forward to... More

Just returned from a week holiday at waterside and was very disappointed. When booking we was told that the caravans had seaviews and our children would enjoy watching the boats on the sea etc. When we arrived, our caravan was on a banking under trees and not a seaview in sight. The site is very hilly, but that didn't bother... More

Thanks Andy K for your comments. I'm not sure where you would have got the information from that our caravans have seaviews, we never guarantee this at time of booking. I am pleased you found the entertainment good and that the caravan was clean. Waterside is a "hilly" park, we have the good fortune to be ideally located in the... More

Waterside provides a great base for visiting Torbay. The location is beautiful though I agree with previous comments it's not the easiest to get down to the waterfront. Fantastic for dogs, we were able to take our dogs for numerous walks either towards broad sands or in the opposite direction to Goodrington. The entertainment was not up to much in... More

My wife and I are pensioners and we travelled to Waterside on public transport. This is not a site to stay at if you are elderly or less mobile. Everwhere you walk is up and down slopes. Even to the 'cove' is perilous. At high tide you can't see it. At low tide you have to climb down steps and... More

Thank you, harold55, for your review. At this time of year we do tend to quieten down and our facilities become less populated. Our main complex does open until 6.00pm, our other bar/restaurant is open from 8.30am until 10.30am daily, same times apply on a Friday to Monday with the exception of opening from 12.00pm onwards.
