  • “Lovely quiet site with glorious views from the Lodges.”

    Very comfortable lodge with all mod cons. Beds are never quite as comfortable as home but fine. Nice little shop with their own meat which was great.

    Very comfortable lodge with all mod cons. Beds are never quite as comfortable as home but fine. Nice little shop with their own meat which was great. Good BBQ on our own patio. 2 really lovely evenings with those great views. Unfortunately the cafe on the site was closed as the chef had left. That was a shame but not the site fault. Would have just been the icing on the cake. Perhaps next time.

Newton Abbot is situated in the heart of The English Riviera, with its mild climate and thriving palm trees. The ancient market town now offers plenty of modern shops, both local and well-known high street chains and six leading brand supermarkets. There's also a racecourse where National Hunt racing takes place from spring until autumn, with craft fayres during the winter. Newton Abbot has a unique pub, the tap house and bottle shop, located in the building of what was a traditional working malthouse offering arguably the finest bottled beers in Devon. The seaside towns of Teignmouth, Shaldon and Dawlish are nearby and are fantastic destinations for families. Spend a day on the beach building sand castles and walk the impressive Victorian Pier at Teignmouth. The National Trust houses of Bradley Manor, Coleton Fishacre and Compton Castle and many others are well worth a visit, whilst the highlight of your stay will undoubtedly be the stunning beaches around Torquay and the many hidden coves such as Meadfoot, Oddicombe and further afield the pretty Ness Cove.
