  • "Upon arrival, the parking bay was situated next to an electric box and the property in front has plant pots so it was a bit tricky getting the car into the bay every-time."

    Then the front gate was broken, top part was completely detached, then getting the keys from the safety key box was stiff and tricky to get out. Now for in the property, there was dog hairs on the rug, there was dog hairs on the shower mat, the shower drain wasn’t working properly as water kept building on the floor, the toilet was leaking, the beds we noticed had black hairs on the bedding, in the double bed there was some stains on the sheets and on the green pillow case, we found dog treat’s behind the chair in the living room and also a piece of mouldy bread (which I refused to touch myself). The fairy lights outside don’t work, also 3 days into the holiday the electricity completely went out, so we had no electricity or heating until the next morning, we had to sort it out with the parks maintenance team and electrician (who were amazing, I won’t fault them). The experience was horrible as I have a disabled son and a 8 year old daughter. My son is on medical equipment aswell. Also please be aware of the door stoppers as on the first day my mother kicked it and seriously hurt her foot resulting in her being unable to walk properly or in pain for the full holiday. Another thing, watch your head on the display cabinet above the telly, I banged my head on it pretty hard and my dad did the same two times.

    Hi Carly, thank you for comments I will do my best to amend as many of the problems that I can John Walton owner Property Owner

  • "The caravan in its self is lovely, it was clean and comfortable."

    The site is self is suited to older people rather than young family’s. The club house shuts very early and there was no entertainment. The caravan opposite displayed very strange behaviour! Parking their cars diagonally to stop people passing through the caravans and coming out regular to check all of their stones were in place, they must of been proud as one point the strange lady came out to take pictures of her parking! If you are looking to retire perfect holiday not so much for young families! Can not fault the caravan it’s self though it was lovely

  • "First impressions of the property were very good."

    Welcoming. Lounge light and airey. Outdoor furniture a bonus. Couple of downfalls -Some of kitchen cutlery and crockery needed cleaning as dirty/used. Crumbs on dining table and chairs and bedside tables were dirty/stained from spilt drinks. This however did not stop us in having a lovely week.

  • "The caravan itself was clean and well equipped - the only thing missing that I would perhaps consider including was a mop (condensation from the toilet was dripping on the floor but we had no way to clean this up)."

    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

  • "Flooded bathroom found on arrival, notified owner, not interested."

    Both toilets not cleaned, cooker greasy, crockery and cutlery grubby, no mattress protectors, hard animal faeces under bed. Generally not up to standard, would not recommend to anyone. Owner not interested. Disgraceful. Only too willing to take your money.

  • "The mattress on the double bed needs to be replaced It is so uncomfortable."

    L was surprised to see there was no mattress Protection cover.l personally believe this should be a priority. The first aid box was on the top of a cupboard it was dirty looks like it Hadn’t been cleaned for months. It states on the inventory there is a washing machine. No washing machine.

About the location


Dartmoor 13 miles; Exeter 11 miles; Teignmouth 5 miles; Dawlish 2 miles.

A couple of miles north east of the town of Dawlish is Dawlish Warren, a mile-long sand beach at the mouth of the River Exe on the stretch of south Devon coastline known as the English Riviera. Dawlish Warren has a selection of shops selling essentials, a golf course and a 55-acre nature reserve, an area of international importance for wildlife, and a roosting site for huge numbers of wading birds and wildfowl that winter on the estuary. The Nature Reserve is also home to more than 450 species of flowering plants including the rare Warren or Sand Crocus. Guided tours around the Reserve are available in the summer season. The beach at Dawlish Warren is a sandy Blue Flag beach backed by sand dunes and small lakes and stretches for miles to reach the Exe Estuary in one direction and Dawlish town in the other. A safe beach, lifeguarded in summer, provides a perfect place for seaside fun, and has many free, open-air events, children's entertainers and spectacular firework and air displays during the summer season. Dawlish Warren has a railway station on the Exeter to Newton Abbot line, one of the most scenic railway journeys in the country. Nearby there is much to occupy the visitor along the English Riviera coastline including Paignton Zoo, the Dartmouth Steam Railway, the picturesque fishing harbour of Brixham and the long pier and promenade at Teignmouth. A typically English seaside resort, great for family holidays at any time of year.
