Questions:-  (This review is from the point of view of motorhomers driving a Bessacarr 769 tag axle – 8.56m)

What are the pitches like?                

5 Large grass pitches with a couple of smaller tent pitches.  Well draining ground (even with all the rain we’ve had over the last few weeks the ground is firm, although the grass is a little long)

Is there water on each pitch?            

No, but fairly easily accessible.  Quite low water pressure  

What is the electric like?           

Good. 

Drainage?     

Think there is by the CWD, but it is a farm and happy for you to water the hedges

What’s the site access like?        

Access is down a very narrow lane off the main A381 to Totnes.  Yes, when you get there, it IS that road, but it is only a short stint (maybe 200m) where it is so narrow.  Entrance to the site is through a gate on the left of the lane

What are the Sanitary facilities like?    

Very rustic!  A ‘hut’ dropped in the field with a front door on it (literally, a front door)  I loved it 🙂  

Toilets:               1 toilet (it’s a shower room on it’s own) It is a proper toilet though, not composting as suggested on The Camping and Caravanning website

Toilet paper provided? Yes; plentiful                                                                                         Showers:           Rustic.  Clean enough and materials provided to clean for yourself

What other facilities are there?    

Bins and CWD 

Is there any internet; if so how much and how good?    

No.  Own signal not bad at all

Very  friendly.  Martin will pop in to see you

How much is it?     

£14 per night including electric  

What’s the area like?            

It’s the South Hams!! So many walks.

Transport is needed really (altough bikes would be okay if you’re a confident cyclist)

Following 5 mile road you will reach Slapton which is well worth a visit.

Blackpool Sands is a lovely beach north of Slapton.  Dartmouth is within easy reach as is Totnes.  We also visited Paignton to pick up the steam train

There is plenty to see and do in this area including Woodlands Theme Park near Dartmouth
