Testimonials from June 2015
A Pleasing Site From the start, we received amazing reversing assistance (how park it on a dime !) to our T.V. wiring muddle ( they ransacked their shed for bits! ) They could not do enough it seemed, even rushing out to open the barrier each time we returned exhausted from our sorties on the moor. Please do not let on about this site, we want to get back in next time!
Friendliest Site Ever. On arrival we had a great welcome by the friendliest staff we have ever encountered. Everything here is well organised. We were called by our name as we pulled up and the reception took time to explain the facilities, the area, local points of interest, the pubs and much more. The site is very clean and beautifully maintained and were were taken on a tour by Hazel to choose our pitch. Even the internet was FREE, reception was a bit hit and miss in places but no worse than Caravan Club sites
Peace and quiet. This is a lovely quiet but busy site with friendly wardens who are helpful and always have time for a chat. Facilities always clean though a bit dated. Reception stocks a small amount of basics and you can order a daily newspaper if you wish. Situated on the edge of beautiful Dartmoor with easy access to explore. National Trust Lydford Gorge is within walking distance and impressive especially after rain. A great base to explore the area.
A site with a view. Located on the edge of the village of Lydford with views onto Dartmoor this is an excellent base for walking and visiting the places of interest in the surrounding area. A walk of approximately a mile back to the main road takes you to an excellent farm shop, their bacon and meat is not to be missed, and then you can cross over the road onto the moor. The site is basically three fields, the upper, where the best views are, is reserved in the main for tents, the other two for caravans and campers. The field furthest from reception is slightly lower than the first and does not have WIFI coverage, which is free on site. There is a WIFI ‘hotspot’ in the laundry room with a table and chairs. The facilities are clean and tidy, perhaps not quite to the standard of the latest Club ones, and there is loads of hot water. The staff are very friendly and helpful, even to the point of offering longer hook up cables should you require them. All in all nothing to complain about and we would certainly consider returning in the future.
Excellent site for exploring Dartmoor with fantastic staff. Beautiful position for visiting Dartmoor and a little further afield the North or South Devon coast. On arrival at the site although a little early we were met by the friendly staff who walked us around the site to find a suitable pitch. Now Lydford has the most beautiful views of the moors so the selection of the pitch to suit your vantage point for the stunning views is important. With tents on the top field and a mix of motorhomes and vans elsewhere on the site and non members welcome we felt the site was friendlier that most CC sites. Yes we will be back and hopefully the shower block and wash facilities will have been updated, they are looking a bit jaded but nevertheless very clean. The village of Lydford is very beautiful and the NT Lydford Gorge walk (about 3 mile round trip – 2 hours) is well worth the effort with waterfalls, trout pools and a thunderous pot hole cauldron at the end absolute magic. If you fancy a night off from cooking at the Castle Inn pub is well worth a visit. Excellent choice of bar meals or restaurant. Top site let down (a little) by the facilities. Thanks to all the staff for their friendliness
First visit won’t be the last. We stayed for the first time for 5 nights in early May. We had booked and we were greeted by name. Very friendly efficient staff booked us in. We were advised on a pitch and told which way sun shone so we could take advantage of evening sunshine. All staff very friendly. Toilet block warm and clean. Walking distance to lovely village pub and NT Lydford Gorge. We fully intend to return as it was a top class site.
