We have just got back from a lovely four night break at Devon Hills. We were impressed upon arrival by how quiet and well kept the park was and even more impressed when we got to our accommodation. We had been upgraded to a lodge which was lovely, it was spotless,well equipped and comfortable.
The park is definitely on the quiet side, but Hoseasons point to out in their brochure and online. It's meant to be a relaxing park so there's no nightclubs or massively loud evening entertainment with the result that there was no late night noise from drunken people wandering around. That said, we were out of the school holidays so it might be a different case when the park is busy in the summer, but with only one pub on site I can't see it being a huge problem. It meant we could get our two children to bed and not have to worry about them being disturbed.
There are no facilities on site other than a leisure centre and the aforementioned pub, no shop or laundrette, but Paignton is only a few minutes in the car for everything you need although it would've been nice to be able to get the paper on site in the morning. The site is also very hilly, hence the name, so if you've got a heavy buggy to push children in it might not be fun.
We didn't take part in any of the activities on site for the children as we were out and about all the time, but from the timetable provided there was plenty for kids of 5 and over which were reasonably priced. Our two are under 5 and there was limited activities for kids their age.
There is plenty to do in the surrounding area that is reasonably priced, Paignton Zoo (very hilly though) and the Dartmouth Steam Railway to name a couple. There's also the Pier in town and numerous beaches which cost as much or as little as you want them to.
All in all, Devon Hills made a a very good impression and we will definitely be back and recommending it to friends.
