“May bank holiday break”
Reviewed 15 May 2014

We stayed here on a sun holiday, mainly because we could take the dog. We were lucky with the weather. Although we had the basic caravan, it was very nice and clean and had all the equipment needed for a short break. We didnt use the club because of having the dog but you had to go into the bar to check in and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The site is on a hill with lovely views and is also good for exercise when you have to walk back up after having fish and chips and ice cream from combe martin. Would go again.

Hello Sue

Thank you for taking the time to leave your fantastic feedback; it’s always a pleasure receiving such positive comments.

We do take great pride in cleaning all grades of accommodation to a very high standard and it’s brilliant that this isn’t going unnoticed. All comments will be passed on to our Housekeeper and the cleaning team.

We are very lucky with the location of our park in such a beautiful part of Devon and we are delighted that you were able to share that experience.

Let me thank you again for taking the time to leave this lovely review and we look forward to welcoming you back to our park very soon.

I've just got back from this lovely holiday park after a short break which was greatly enjoyed by all my family. Very friendly staff, clean accommodation, fair bar and food prices and a view to die for from the bar. Would recommend for all ages.

We usually don't write reviews on places we have visited but had to share what a fantastic time we had while staying at Combe Martin Beach Hoilday park. The views were spectacular from the club house and Geoff the stripey coat made our evenings most enjoyable with plenty of laughs and thought for the children, getting them involved in all activities. My son especially liked the magic show and loved helping out "MIke Stand" ha ha. The accomodation was simple but extremely clean with everything you could hope for on a self catering break. The location was brilliant and just a short walk into the village and beach with amazing caves and rock pools to explore.
Will most certainly be revisiting in the very near future.
Also many thanks to the other stripey ( sorry do not know the name) for inviting my children to the other holiday park to visit Freddy the fox and Kenny the Badger.

I have stayed at here on two occasions before and I always vow to come back. I am a single parent with 2 children, one who has autism and this park suits us down to the ground. We come here as it is a small park compared to the others and my son copes well with it. I usually opt for the Gold accommodation as I always find them excellent but this time they had sold out so we went for silver. There were a few mishaps this time and I did have to call maintenance 4 times. Its not as bad as it sounds I promise! On our second day we woke up to no electric. We called reception and maintenance were there within an excellent 5 minutes...fixed instantly, 3rd day, electric went again. It was explained that the problem may have been because the caravan was moved that season and we were the first people to stay in it, again they came out instantly, they fixed the problem straight away. It wasn't the fuse box so there was no real issue with electrics themselves but they gave us a new kettle etc in case that was the problem, 3rd time was myself being incredibly feeble with the biggest spider invading my caravan (it was, honestly, I can't deal with hairy big spiders, I was being pathetic in all honesty but I heard the maintenance guy working behind the caravan so I begged him to help once again) he laughed and got rid of the spider!) 4th time electric went again and they realised it was a small issue with something (nothing dangerous at all but they set to work straight away) sorted! they were always polite and happy to help. Food in clubhouse was very good value for money and delicious (thank you Lewis!) very quick too! Stripey Jo and Geoff were great at the entertainment. The kids loved them and as before when my son found the music too loud and became distressed they did their best to help him by turning the music down. PERFECT! Who else does that?!

The site itself is very very hilly so if you have mobility issues this site is a big no no! There is one small play area on site and one small beer garden so don't expect masses of facilities but to be fair we didn't need them. If you want to do a biggish shop for food while you are there the nearest supermarket is about 25 minutes away
