We have just returned from a four day break at this site by way of a national newspaper offer. We stayed in the basic mobile home which was quite adequate for us, and was close to the clubhouse on this hilly site which we wanted because of our advancing years! The mobile home was very clean on arrival, had 3 bedrooms which was more than adequate for just the two of us. It was equiped with a television, electric central heating (which we didn't expect) and well stocked with the usual kitchen equipment for our stay. Although we only used the Club in the evenings, the drinks and food were reasonably priced and the entertainment was good. The site is ideally situated for exploring the South Hams of Devon and we were very fortunate in having superb weather. My wife did use the indoor pool which she described as being both clean and with very warm water. The staff were very friendly and helpful so all in all there can only be good things to say about this site. If you go there, I hope you enjoy it as much as we did. Thank You, Holburne.

My family and i have been staying at this site for the last 8 years. Over the years we have stayed in different caravans with H&H Caravans, and every time we have been, we have recieved great customer service from all members of staff on the park. After coming home for a week, we are missing it already. the park is conviniently situated, close to the steam train and zoo. You are never more than 5 minutes away from any attraction of Torbay.

I will always recommend H&H Caravans for their service and caravans on the park, we had a couple of problems with the heating, but was rectified during the time we were out the next day. The caravans on the park are well maintain as well as the site in general. Reception staff are as brilliant as ever.

Go and enjoy Torbay, with the comfort of good service when you get back to the park. See you next year!

I took my family to Hoburne Torbay for a week during the school holidays. The site is conveniently located near to Goodrington. The beach is about a 10 minute walk away. The site is located on a hill and does have sea views but you do have to cross a busy road to get to the sea front. The beach at Goodrington is very clean and family friendly and very near to the train station where you can watch the steam trains as you sit on the beach. There are also a few little shops, a pub and a small park nearby. A little further along is Paignton which has far more to offer with a superb beach and plenty of shops, cafes, amusements and childrens entertainment. The Hoburne site is very convenient asTorquay and Brixham are also very near. The caravan site itself is not too large. There is a large outdoor swimming pool and a smaller indoor pool with a flume. There is also a small adventure park and a few amusements. The onsite club is quite small with a small dance area which my children felt very comfortable with, as at larger caravan parks they have felt too intimidated to get up to dance, but on this site they were on the dance floor every night. The entertainment was very good with a variety of acts both from the entertainments team and from outside acts. The day time entertainment for children is limited here and this is really the only negative.Larger operators such as Haven excel at day time entertainment and have many more activities for children. The night time entertainment at Hoburne though is excellent, and the Sammy the Seahorse character is a favourite with the children. If you are happy to use the onsite facilities such as the swimming pool during the day time or do your own thing and then enjoy the night time entertainment at Hoburne, then this site is excellent. Another bonus I found, was that the evening entertainment did not go on to the early hours of the morning. So you did not have noisy revellers going past your caravan in the early hours.(Some of you may find this a bad thing, but with two small children it was nice to get to sleep by midnight). I must also say that the site is very clean, the staff very friendly and the caravans are first class. The top of the range caravans such as gold and platinum have verandas which are a bonus when the weather is hot. I booked a platinum and it far exceeded my expectations. Friends have booked the silver grade and they found that to be excellent value for money.This was my first holiday with Hoburne and it definitely will not be the last. I have already booked for next year with the hope that the weather will be hot once again.

We (my wife and I along with our 19 month old daughter) have returned home a couple of days ago from our 7 night holiday at Hoburne Torbay. We were greeted on arrival by Marina who was extremely polite and helpful. All of the staff that we met were fantastic. The caravan was clean and we didn't have any nasty surprises. The park was really well maintained and facilities were excellent. We will definitely stay here again next time we travel down to Devon. A definite recommendation from me!

Room Tip: We stayed in caravan L14 which was huge and had a balcony round the outside of the caravan with a decking area which had table and chairs.

We stayed on this site for a week at the end of August and thought it was very good. A late booking, we booked direct with the site and had chosen a Gold caravan, which was the best option available and looked lovely. We were then advised that we had been upgraded FOC to a Platignum caravan, which sounded great!

On arrival, we were not disappointed in the least. It was gorgeous! New, spotlessly clean and really comfortable. First class! Our only criticism (preference) was that the fridge and freezer would have been better the other way round (fridge at eye level, to save opening two cupboard doors), so that is how good it was!

Site is lovely, very clean, and there are ample facilities on site and nearby. Goodrington Sands are a pleasant walk away, as was the nearby leisure centre. Paignton is a bit further on. Lots more within driving distance.

The entertainment wasn't to our particular taste but the function room was packed every evening, so was obviously popular. Went along for a quiz night, but that was a let down (12 questions...!). Our ten-year old loved the pools and the amusement arcade, plus the neighbouring driving range.

Staff were friendly and helpful.

As mentioned by someone else, the one downside was the extremely noisy seagull population, who welcomed dawn in every morning :-(

Would recommend Paignton Zoo, Babbacombe Model Village and Woodlands Leisure Park for visits. Also, for a fabulous pub meal out, a must is the The Hare and Hounds on Torquay Road, Kingskerswell, Newton Abbot. Carvery, regular menu, plus dessert trolley to die for! :-D
