Alan Rogers Review

This peaceful woodland site is owned by Richard and Helen Gurd who go the extra mile to ensure you enjoy your stay here. The pitches vary in size (20 - 70 sq.m) and are on flat ground served by gravel roads giving easy access. Some informally marked pitches are tucked away in dense foliage and are very private. Electricity (10A) is supplied to 38 of the 40 touring pitches (16 hardstandings). All the standard facilities are near reception, including a free fenced and heated swimming pool (10x5 m). A play area is provided for children under the canopy of mature trees which shade the site.

Campers can barbecue on the pitches and use the picnic tables provided or perhaps hire a fire pit for cooking their supper. Torches are essential at night. This is a well placed site for visiting Devon, Dorset and Somerset, and many places of interest close by. There are many fascinating things to do and see in the area and details are provided by reception. Nature scavenger trails for children are organised, along with opportunities to see the wildlife that regularly visits the site. This is a pleasant ‘back to nature’ park, which is highly suitable for families who enjoy this type of camping. Four charming log cabins are also for hire.


A modest, modern sanitary building provides all usual facilities and is kept clean and smart. There are facilities for disabled campers which double as a family bathroom. Washing machine and dryers. Reception doubles as the shop selling some fresh food, milk, bread and essentials. Heated outdoor swimming pool (20/5-20/9). Play area with trampoline (outside). Planned walks and some day activities. Bicycle hire. Four log cabins for hire. Barbecues allowed (not electric). WiFi (charged).
