“Wow!! The perfect family holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2012

Just back from a fabulous weekend camping at Crealy and we LOVED it! We stayed in our own caravan and have 3 children aged 4, 2 and 7 months and Crealy made camping with small kids a doddle! The family bathrooms with baths are beautiful! Underfloor heating, toddler loos and changing tables all in the same room. Loads of space to run around, great parks, a theme park on your doorstep with fantastic soft play and parks and rides!!! Great evening entertainment surrounded by softplay to keep the kids entertained upto 11pm! We cannot wait to go back again next year and were all gutted to have to pack up today and go home :0(

This is a fantastic camping and caravanning site. Watch out for a lot of fantastics in this review!
Fantastic Staff
Fantastic Pitches (we stayed on the touring area)
Fantastic pitch again with water at each point
fantastically peaceful at night
Fantastic Facilities

We have been twice now and will come back more as the standard of the whole site is amazing.
There are 2 great shower blocks with the most amazing family bathrooms I have ever seen complete with actual baths and showers and lovely and warm.

Great pitches for tourers with water and electric at each pitch.
The site is well positioned and not far at all to walk to the (last one) fantastic theme park.

many thanks for a great stay

Me and my family stayed last week at the beautiful new campsite, originally we were meant to stay in May but we had our holiday cancelled because it was not ready to open, however we decided to transfer our holiday to September as the kids were gutted that we couldn't go!
When we got there, we knew we made the right choice, what a lovely, new, funky and fun campsite!!!
We were only on a 'super pitch' but were lucky to look at the african and medieval tents and they were amazing!!! definitely booking one for next year!
The staff were really helpful, and thanks to Dan for making us laugh and being great fun all week!!! But all the staff were amazing :)
See you in 2013!!!

Our family of three stayed in a medievil pavillion for four night 18-21 Sept. The tent iself was well stocked with everything you might need for a self catering stay including a lovely wood burning stove which kept us warm as well as cooking our food. Electric sockets in every "room" ensured that we could keep our three year old entertained in the evening with dvd's.
We went off peak which was considerably cheaper. Other reviewers have bemoaned the lack of evening entertainment but it was stated online when we booked that the eateries and entertainment would not be available so we did prepare for this. Our tent was close to the toilet/shower block which was clean and checked regularly. The underfloor heating in them was a bonus on cold mornings! The family bathroom was a nice touch as we could all get ready together. A play park was also close by.
Wood and camping supplies were available in the shop at reception, it was staffed by a very friendly Matt who also ensured we received instruction on the wood stove. Swipe cards were supplied to get us into the park which meant that there was no need to walk up to the main park entrance.
Going off peak meant that the park was fairly quiet, the rides we avoided on our summer daytrip were easy to get on. Early mornings were taken care of by the Pony Experience, just a walk with your allocated pony for an hour in the morning followed by grooming so not a bind at all. Our daughter really enjoyed this and couldn't wait to tell all her friends on our return.
Overall we thought the tent was awesome, the facilities modern and well maintained and the staff really friendly. The park itself wouldnt really be suitable for children over ten but as ours is only three we have a few years yet! Having said that the campsite is an excellent base for local attractions, or even not so local (we did a daytrip to Longleat) We would definately book again.

Room Tip: We stayed in "The Yeoman" which was close to the facilites, however in peak season I imagi...

My newly wed husband and I stayed here for a few nights relaxation after our nuptuals. We had checked that it was couple friendly prior. The initial contact with Matt was superb, very chatty with the booking and upon arrival they even gave us a bottle of bubbly which was a lovely touch. The toilets were immaculate at all times, we loved the family bathrooms, nice to have a bath available if you need it. There were only a couple of other families staying at the same time as us. We enjoyed popping over to Crealy park to see the animals for a short time each day.
We have worked across Europe on campsites and felt there were a few little things that could have been better. The first is that the pitches are rather close. There was little space to the sides of the safari tent to enjoy the evening sun, and you felt you were intruding on the neighbours. The biggest disappointment though was the quality of the mattresses in the safari tent, there was so much thought and planning to the design and equipment that the mattress let it down. That said for families I would highly recommend this, we loved running water in the tents. After our initial contact with Matt the interaction with the staff was limited, instigated by ourselves and we wished they had been a little more enthusiastic. I think the shop would benefit from a wider range of produce, with so many great farmshops on the same road they will lose business in this area, also there was no information on the surrounding area which seemed a shame although this was overcome by the wifi that was available!
Great time, just missing that extra spark for us. Would definately recommend for families and new campers though.

This holiday was fantastic. I had visited the theme park a couple of years before with my two young neices and they enjoyed it then, so when my sister said she had booked a Medieval Tent for 7 of us, I wasn't sure what to expect. All three kids and adults were chuffed to little mint balls with the tent. AMAZING!! It was so big and roomy and had everything you could want including ample crockery, pots and pans and a never ending supply of very hot water!! Being an ardent camper, I was very pleased to see superb toilet and shower blocks which also boasted a family bathroom as well which was a god send with children. It was also nice to see how clean they were kept throughout the day and we did have some damp days during our stay, but the toilets were kept immaculate 5* any day! They also have a laundry room, ideal to dry off any damp clothing. The real beds and log burner just added to the comfort. I've definitely been spoilt now!

All the staff were so helpful, nothing was too much trouble. They have a small shop which has the basics to keep you going. The Wardens also made sure that anything out of place was soon sorted.

For those camping, the site is a nice sizeand not too big , with reasonably flat pitches the only draw back I could see was the pot washing facilities. They could maybe do with being under cover and possibly a couple more sinks as the site was busy over Bank Holiday.

This is one holiday that we have certainly recommended to parents with younger children. The passes to the Theme park were invaluable throughout the week and Crealy is within easy reach of many fabulous attractions in Devon and if you are a keen walker, you'll be spoilt. Keep up the good work. We would definitely come back.
