Just returned from a bank holiday camping trip to Oakdown and happy to confirm that the very positive reviews I read prior to booking were accurate.
Our reception experience was a good precursor to the remainder of the visit and we were guided to our pitch across the road next to the play area, close to the shop and cafe. The play area was well maintained and ideal for the children with us. I had wondered if it would be a little loud given the number of children around on a busy weekend but there were no issues, including when it came to sleeping.
The pitches are on astro turf which meant we were on a flat surface and avoided bringing grass into the tent. There was plenty of space and the electric hook up was easily accessible.
The shop and cafe are well stocked and reasonably priced. It is also where you pay for the golf. What a great little course! Well done to everyone involved in its upkeep.
The toilets and showers, kitchen area and site as a whole, are all kept to the highest standards which encourages everyone to do their bit in maintaining the cleanliness of the areas.
The walk to the donkey sanctuary is very pleasant, largely flat and affords protection from the bust road which runs alongside the camp site. We walked on to Sidmouth from the sanctuary. It was around 6 miles in total and there were some very steep ups and downs. There are beautiful views all of the way but be prepared for some tough climbing if you choose to take the challenge on. Our 11 and 12 year olds managed with a little encouragement. Thank goodness for the hopper bus service to take us back. I think I'm right in saying the fare is just a pound each. Great value.
I would happily book again.

Thank you for taking the time to us a review.


Your comments were absolutely lovely, really great to read and a boost for the team.

We have had a really busy weekend, but most people are pretty considerate and do abide by our 'quite hours' rules. We want everyone to have a 'holiday' no matter how busy we are.

The amenities block / kitchen cleanliness is one of the top priorities for the wardens. They are both cleaned and checked regularly to ensure they are spotless.


I'm very impressed that you walked down into Sidmouth. The coast line here is amazing, hence being a Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB), but it's a pretty tough walk in places. The Hopper bus was ideal, good thinking!!


We look forward to seeing you again soon!

One of the best we’ve stayed in in 10 years of caravanning. Arrived late around 7pm, buzzed for the warden. He arrived immediately with a warm welcome and overview of the site and showed us to our pitch. Site is immaculate, very flat, really attractively laid out and spotless. Shower and toilet block immaculate at all times. Warm and friendly service in the shop. Busy but didn’t feel overcrowded at all and spotless play area for the kids. Brilliant site and we will return.

We Stayed here over the Easter weekend and boy we were impressed. A lovely site which is maintained to the highest standard. The same could be said to how clean the site is. Very Friendly and welcoming staff. A little shop on site which is not overpriced and they serve Food which was lovely. A small golf course accompanies the site which was a joy to play. A very peaceful site overall and we had an awesome time here

Just got back after another stay here at the Oakdown holiday Park, it is a fantastic site always made to feel welcome and the pitches are the best , The toilets and showers are always fresh clean , i cant recommend this place enough give it a try you will not be disappointed , There is a little shop/cafe located 1 minute from the site entrance that does everything you could need including a fried breakfast, if you want the bus into Sidmouth its about a 6 minute walk to the nearest Bus Stop , but in peak season you can get a bus right outside the camp site , will we be back hell yeah can't wait , thanks for a lovely stay and the weather see you soon Dan and Family

What a lovely review to read first thing in the morning! Thank you!!

I think you have covered everything. The Hopper bus to Sidmouth, which stops right outside the park, starts on 24th May, just in time for Bank Holiday.

We look forward to seeing you again soon.
