This was the second time that we've camped at Oakdown as part of a school group completing the Duke of Edinburgh's Award. Once again, the staff and facilities were excellent - the grass was freshly cut priori to our arrival, we were welcomed onto site and they even opened the gates early for us in the morning so we could get the minibuses out. Thank you Oakdown, your top notch service helped all our pupils get the best experience possible out of their DofE Expedition - and for some of them it was the first time camping!

The park is amazing, clean tidy. The cafe on site is very good ( cheese burger WOW ). Can’t rate this site high enough. WELL DONE OAKDOWN 😁💪👍👏👏👏👏👏

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review, it was an absolute pleasure to read on a Monday morning. We have survived a very tough season and with reviews like that, it makes all the hard work worthwhile. I will pass on your kind comments to the staff on the park and across the road in the cafe and we look forward to welcoming you back again. Many thanks

Lovely staff, very friendly and the amenities are so clean! I had a lovely nights rest whilst doing the Jurassic coast path for charity. Would definitely recommend to friends and family. Also the dogs were definitely a huge bonus.

We have just got back from a weeks stay in one of the lodges and have had a really amazing week. The way the site is run is brilliant, the staff are great and genuinely seem to care about your stay, the lodge was just what we needed for our first break away since covid, especially when you add in the peacefulness of the site. It is all well kept, clean and loved. Thank you for a great stay, we will be back.

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review. Its very rare to get a negative comment about the astroturf. Most people find it a great surface to camp on as it drains well and doesn't cause the mud/dirt to get inside the tents. Sorry that you weren't so keen. Glad you had a nice stay and found the park to be clean and quiet though. I hope you managed to get out in the lovely weather and explore East Devon.

Can't praise enough! Had been given a voucher for a couple of nights by our daughter before the first lockdown so had to change it to following year. Another lockdown and the husband had hip replacement so another postponement. The staff were so accommodating and eventually we made it to Oakdown mid October. We stayed on the acorn site next to the playground and we loved it. In the end we stayed for 6 nights. It was so quiet and even the horrendous weather didn't spoil it. All staff were lovely and everywhere was spotless. Shop was open in the mornings and some hot food was available. Lovely walks around and the donkey sanctuary is on the doorstep. Lovely coastal walks too. Thankyou to Oakdown for a wonderful stay

Thank you for taking the time to give us a review, you made it here eventually, thats the main thing. We certainly have had some horrendous weather this october, but we have also had some lovely sunny days. I hope you had a few of them during your stay so that you were able to get out and about and enjoy the local area. Please do come back and stay with us again.

After our pre-booked campsite cancelled on us last minute, Oakdown were kind enough to accommodate our Duke of Edinburgh's Award Expedition teams for a night of camping. All of our 14 young people and 3 staff thought the facilities were excellent and the staff went out of their way to ensure we had a great experience. Thank you very much to all the Oakdown team from Cranbrook Education Campus!

This park deserve all the awards they have received. A beautiful and well-kept park with amazing facilities and friendly staff. We arrived early but they didn’t mind and even went off and mowed the grass where we would be erecting our tent! I have never had such lovely showers and washing up facilities at a campsite before. The walk to the donkey sanctuary made for a great day and they are close to many beautiful beaches. The on-site minimart has everything and more you could need.

We visited Oakdown as a quick get away before life got back to normal post covid. We honestly can’t express how amazing the site is ! We are currently staying in a premier glamping pod on the site. When we arrived we were greeted by a friendly lady from reception, and promptly escorted around the site and shown to our pod. Once the basics were explained (amenities and toilets) we were left in our immaculately clean and tidy pod. After a comfy nights sleep we were ready for the walk down to the donkey sanctuary, (further than we thought). On arriving back we used the showers, which were clean, hot and private! The site is layed out, with plenty of space and things to do weather you have a young family or weather you’re an older couple having a get away with your dog. We will be back again in the near future ! Thank you for such a lovely get away!
