The site is well located just of the Totnes to Newton Abbott road. The entrance is impressive when you arrive, the staff are very friendly. The shop is well stocked. There is one major issue with the site no one respects the 5 mile an hour speed limit. The other guests, the golf carts, the lawn mower and the tractor.... More

We have just returned from a 4 night stay, we camped in a tent and it has to be the cleanest and tidiest campsite we have ever visited. We arrived midweek and were surprised at how busy it was, but we know why. It is situated in a very picturesque location and has everything needed for a countryside vacation. We... More

This is the second time we have visited Dornafield in our caravan. It is a lovely site, well laid out and immaculate. The wardens work tirelessly to keep it so, which does result in a lot of mowing and strimming, but that can't be helped! The access road to the site is a little narrow in places which can be...

Stayed overnight at the campsite. Pitches are well kept and mostly level. Blocks needed to make it completely level. Facilities are very good and kept very clean. Little shop which has the basics in, willing to order in papers for the next day. Site was fairly busy but there was plenty of room. Peaceful location when the mowers feel silent!

Dear SusanW186220 So pleased that you decided to stay with us and thank you for your kind comments on Dornafield. As you mentioned the hard standings are pretty level but you always require a little tweaking to get it spot on.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The fourteenth-century farmhouse, once besieged by irate Roundheads during the civil war, forms the focal point of the site, and the surrounding buildings have been adapted for your use but still retain their characteristic Devonshire charm, making a warm and happy holiday atmosphere. Dornafield has three very individual areas. The Orchard, small and cosy, is ideal for tents and adjoins Buttermeadow, our original award winning development. Overlooking part of Buttermeadow is our most recent addition Blackrock Copse with its state of the art facilities. There are no residential or letting caravans on site and we have no clubhouse or bar but we can easily direct you to a wealth of local historic inns nearby. Stay at Dornafield and enjoy Devon through the seasons. Carpets of wild daffodils and primroses greet our first visitors as violets sprinkle the hedges and old stone walls spring to life. By early summer bluebells cover Blackrock copse and the Devon banks are a riot of pink, white and blue. Soon it will be haymaking time and neighbouring fields turn from green to gold. High summer sees Dornafield lush and full of flowers with buzzards wheeling overhead but those able to wait are rewarded with a farewell burst of brilliance as oak and beech, ash and maple turn to the russets of autumn, and squirrels and badgers reap the abundance of our Devonshire countryside. ... more   less
