V well set up campsite. Good management of facilities for COVID - bathrooms/showers frequently cleaned and always tidy. Outlook v attractive - surrounded by fields with sheep and cows. Internet connection poor in some areas of the site but in many ways this made us chill out. Dartmouth and Salcombe both about 30mins away. Narrow lanes to get to the campsite - this ensured it was peaceful. Would definitely recommend.

This is a nice little (or actually quite grand) place. A friendly reception and spotlessly clean and comfortable room. The location is also fabulous, set in some stunning countryside and with grounds in which you can relax in the sunshine. The room was very dated, though. I don't actually think this is a problem but the wallpaper in Room 4 does need some attention. And it would be good to have all the information for the room in one place rather than lots of little notices about hot water, WiFi password etc. stuck up all over the place. That all said, I would have no hesitation in returning.

Stayed over a weekend, friendly and great spot very quite, nice place to relax. Good breakfast . The room we had was a little dated but spacious and lovely views over the grounds would go back. Seemed out of the way but once you know where it is pretty handy for local visits

My partner and I, with our dog, camped for 4 nights in the gardens of South Allington House. The grounds were gorgeous, and peaceful and due to the time of year, really quiet. It felt like we were in the middle of nowhere. There was a small area for washing up, with the use of fridge/freezers and shower/toilet block. These were pretty rustic but clean enough. Although you could have breakfast at the manner house and cream tea, it’s not something we did, so we can’t comment. We traveled out every day to places like Hope Cove, Strete Beach (dog friendly) and Dartmouth Castle where we had the most amazing Cream Tea! We would highly recommend staying here. For the 4 nights, including our dog, in a large 2/3 man tent, we paid £72

Just returned from a family holiday in The Laurels at South Allington house. Altogether there was 9 adults and 3 kids. It was a lovely wing of the main house with the focal point being the huge dining kitchen where everyone spent most evenings. The grounds were stunning and the location of the property is in a stunning area of Devon. The kids loved the grounds and I would highly recommend to any big group.
