“Devon Diamond ” Recent Trip Advisor Review.

Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Week camping in our Montana 6 during half term break. What a find this site is. Beautifully maintained site, the groundsman was constantly working to keep everywhere looking perfect.

Camping plus notes: flat pitch, allocated pitch area, large space, room for car, water every second pitch, electricity very accessible.

Facilities: regularly cleaned and never any problems. We were in the Salcombe Meadow and probably the furthest pitch from the facilities but absolutely no problem for us at all. Plenty of showers and water always very hot. Pot wash is under cover with radio to keep you company. Play area available for the little ones. Shop well equipped with the option to order breakfast items and newspapers if you wish.

Noise: only a problem if you are unable to appreciate the chime of the church bells, the singing of the birds and the hee haw of the donkeys at the local sanctuary. For us it was pure bliss

Staff were very friendly and couldn’t do enough for us. Very knowledgable of local area too.

There are a number of walks from the site into Sidmouth, Coastal Walks to beach and local donkey sanctuary. Be prepared for steep hills and breath taking scenery. If you can’t face the walk back there is a free hopper bus service available very frequently.

This is a little treasure of a site and I would highly recommend it. Definitely looking to return later in the year if possible.

“Excellent Campsite with very clean facilities”

Trip Advisor – Reviewed yesterday NEW

 From: positiveenerje – Devon, United Kingdom

We stayed at Salcombe Regis for 4 night with friends. 3 adults and 6 children. The greeting was brilliant and we were offered a better camping pitch straight away as the weather had been heavy rain and the pitch we were allocated on booking was sloping. The pitch offered was flat and better drained. great customer service. Facilities for the children were great football, table tennis and climbing frames – just perfect for 7-15 year olds.

Clean spotless toilet block and shower facilities, spacious wash facilities with hanging drying lines with reasonable washing machine prices. Gorgeous walk to the beach at Sidmouth along the coastal paths too. The free shuttle bus back to the campsite was a god send with children after a day at the beach! One of the best campsites I have stayed at.

This is a really lovely camping and caravan site. It’s kept very clean and tidy by the friendly and helpful owners and staff who are there to help you with anything you need, but will also leave you in peace to enjoy your holiday – so if you’re not a people person and worried about staying at an independent site – don’t be!

We stayed in one of the static caravans which was very well equipped, comfortable, modern and clean. The on site shop was very handy.

Lots of good beaches in the area, Sidmouth is very close and accessible by free minibus hopper service, Budleigh Salterton is a short drive away. If you’re looking for a sandy beach for the children then Exmouth is not far by car and is well worth a visit – there always seems to be plenty of space on the beach there even at peak times in the holiday season.

“Immaculate, friendly and the most fab site”

Trip Advisor – Reviewed 5 days ago NEW

Fantastic number one campsite. We arrived with kids, dogs, one massively-keen-on-camping husband and one previously less-than-keen-on-camping wife but after four days at this site, the wife is converted and has found her number one holiday spot in the UK! The owners genuinely want you to enjoy your stay and will do everything in their power to help you with any problem. They are fantastic. The service is amazing, the pitches very generous in size, the toilet/shower block is thoroughly cleaned daily and not once did I think it was looking unclean. The showers are free, powerful and have endless hot water. I also never once had to wait to use the shower/loos as there are plenty. The dog walking area is amazing in that the paddock provided is super clean (poo bags and bins are everywhere in this area which is amazingly dog friendly), easy to access and secure with access gates at each end and leads on to lovely walks across footpaths and the fabulous donkey sanctuary tracks. Location is brilliant and for the first time ever we will definitely be returning to a campsite….this one! The other families were also lovely and it was just a great fun family site. Fabulous play area too in the centre of the site. It was also fantastic that rules are adhered to but not in an annoying way, just in a really polite way. The site genuinely went quiet at 10pm which was wonderful for those of us with young kids who need to get to sleep and we all slept well. It really was a five star site and location for visiting the other beautiful amazing attractions about was ideal.

“Great Caravan Park”

Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a top notch site in the South of England. We only stayed here for one night before catching the ferry from Plymouth, so we never really got the chance to explore the surrounding area. However, we did wander round to the donkey sanctuary next door and enjoyed watching the animals. The pitches are of a decent size, plenty of grass. Sanitary is very good. The owners have shown that they prefer quality to quantity. They could pack the central area with pitches, but choose to leave this for sports and a children’s play area. Well done to them. It was easy to book a pitch by telephone and the people in the reception made us feel welcome.

“Highly recommended”

5 of 5 starsTrip Advisor – Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

A friendly well kept campsite with good facilities. There’s play area for kids and a large open field with goal posts for them to get rid of some energy. Dog friendly with a separate exercising area. Located about 1.5 miles from Sidmouth, it’s an easy and pleasant walk down Salcombe Hill into town, but a little more strenuous on the way home. Sidmouth is a lovely quaint town with a variety of shops and cafes to wander around. The Devon cream teas are a must!
The stunning scenery of the Jurassic coast path is within easy reach. There are plenty of footpath so it’s easy to plan circular walks form the campsite. The Donkey Sanctuary is also on your door step and has a nice café you can stop off at for refreshments on you way back.

“Beautifully maintained site and brilliant people”

5 of 5 starsTrip Advisor –  Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

Lovely location, easily accessing the coast path, east to Sidmouth or west to Branscombe. Free Hopper bus from the site a brilliant way to travel locally if you don’t fancy walking. Mark and everyone really helpful people, lots of great tips on what to do. As a van with electric hook up the view of the sea was, quite fantastically, our view, but all the pitches were great – and lots of room. Even if full there would still be lots of green space on this site, it’s not about squeezing in too many people. Beautifully maintained landscape and very clean and pretty toilet/shower/washing up block. Minimal lighting on and surrounding the site meant the night sky was amazing. A relaxing time in quintessentially English countryside. Thank you Salcombe Regis Camping Park!

Whatever you do, please don’t change anything!!

All the best to you,

Dear Sirs,

Just a short note to thank you all so much for a wonderful stay. This was our first stay at Salcombe Regis and we loved it. You could not have been any more helpful. Thank you all for everything that you did.
We asked for a pitch near to the toilet (for our autistic daughter) and you put us near to the toilet. You were all so helpful and courteous – we could not have asked for more. When we asked about having a BBQ you, very quickly, gave us some blocks to put the BBQ on. You were all amazing. When we had to change our plans and arrive a day late – there was no fuss, you just obliged.
You checked on us, without intruding, to make sure everything was OK.
The facilities were spotless. This is truly one of the best campsites we have ever stayed on (we have travelled throughout the UK and Europe).
Whilst it may not have seemed much to you all – it made our holiday. Travelling with a child with special needs can be so challenging – and you made it so easy.
Thank you again – and we will be back. That is guaranteed.
We would be grateful if you could please pass this on to all of your staff.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
See you soon.
Kind regards
Mark (Bristol)
