“What a big pitch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

Only stayed for one night - actually that surprised me straight away, that I could even book a pitch for one night only in the middle of summer.
Pitch was large and flat enough. Staff were friendly and helpful.
I read other reviews saying that the noise levels were not controlled. The night we stayed was when the tail end of hurricane Bertha hit the southwest, so there were no late night parties. All we could hear was wind and rain!
Toilets and showers are new, but all the toilets ran out of paper because it was those kind of dispensers where the paper disappears inside and you can't get it out again.
On site (in Crealy park) evening entertainment was suitably cheesy. Indoor play area open in the evenings which was great.
Free wifi in my tent!!

First time campers and was extremely pleased staff were very friendly welcoming and helpful, toilets and showers were very nice clean, warm and very smart. The campsite has it own little parks which kept the children busy we even had dinner delivered to the tent :). The site was clean and tidy and well spaced out. I was dry pleased with the experience and the kids had a fantastic time will be going back again

We've just enjoyed a lovely stay at Crealy Meadows in a Medieval Tent. The staff are all very friendly and helpful and the shower and toilet areas were very modern and clean. The whole site is very family friendly and having access to the adventure park next door during our stay was brilliant. The kids also really enjoyed their 2 hour pony experience we booked. Would highly recommend this site.

Good size super pitches, grass could have been cut prior to arrival, as does Woodlands. I like the separation of pitches with low hedges and will be fantastic once they have grown and thickened. Facilities were excellent, but cleanliness was compromised by the people who use them with no consideration for others. There was a problem with unsupervised children playing in and around the toilet block, some racing around on scooters with some near misses, could do with a patrolling warden to control this. Our Grandchildren of 9 and 12, thoroughly enjoyed the venture park and did not get bored. The entertainment in the evening was an additional bonus and enjoyable, where we participated in the acts. The staff were always very helpful and cheerful throughout, and right up to the end of the day. It is a pity that the quality of the campsite is spoilt by the people who use it! What would be a lot better, is to separate tents from caravans, as does Woodlands and The Caravan Club, the attitude of the people are different! Another suggestion, would be to make the signage to the pitches clearer, using small signs on the corner of each road, indicating where the pitch numbers are, similar to a hotel corridor showing room numbers and directions, a map is not enough on its own. I would have preferred the roads to be Tarmac, like Woodlands, rather than compressed hardcore that is breaking up in places. It is a great location for Sidmouth, long sandy beach at Exmouth with parking on the road. Great farm shop just up the road from Crealy, fab fish and chips and they have a butcher, baker and fishmonger. With my suggestions above in place and more supervised children, this could be an excellent site and better than Woodlands!

Excellent camp site, very clean and tidy, bit expensive for the pitch, it was handy to have a tap on every pitch due to taking our 3 month old daughter, overall very pleased with our stay and would recommend to family and friends

If you have children to entertain or adults! This is the place to stay as it is literally on the doorstep of Crealy fun park. The campsite itself offers large level well maintained pitches, friendly reception staff and probably the most luxurious toilet/shower/wash facilities in the South West! Keep up the good work.
