A small site, situated on a cliff top, with superb sea views. Situated just outside Coombe Martin, it is ideally placed for everything you need. I have been at least 12 times, sometimes with friends, sometimes on my own. I was taken seriously ill there 3 years ago, and rushed to hospital. The manager and housekeeper couldn't have done more, or cared more. My car was looked after while I was in hospital, and they even phoned to see how I was, that was after they had sent for an ambulance for me. I cannot speak highly enough for the staff, or, how they look after the site. Do go!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: You cannot better there!

Potato Pete: We booked the week before Easter to visit family who live nearby.

Doctor Carrot: Last time our silver caravan had been OK, but a bit close to the club house, which was convenient for the pool and soft play, but a bit noisy when the kids were trying to sleep...

Pete: ... so this time we went for a gold one and requested to be away from the clubhouse. In short, both we and our kids (aged 5 and 4) had a brilliant time: on the first day by 10:30am we had been down to the private beach, in the playground, the clubhouse, the soft play and the pool. Combe Martin shops and three different beaches were within a few minutes walk, and the facilities on site were excellent. Our girls absolutely loved 'Foxy Club' and were in danger of a meltdown if not allowed to attend both the morning and evening sessions. They were overjoyed to win certificates and Easter eggs, and to be given CDs of party music at the end.

Carrot: Those CDs have been extremely annoying to parents ever since.

Pete: True, but the kids adore them. The Stripeys did a great job.

Carrot: Even if we were robbed in one of the games. There's no way that we were the last to go 'elbow to elbow' and 'back to back'.

Pete: Let's not talk about that. Stripey Tom: your card is marked.

Pete and Carrot say: We had a brilliant time in the caravan, the park and the village. There was enough there to please the 4 year old, the 5 year old and the 38 year olds. We're grateful to the staff for their efforts in making our trip special and will return. Thank you.

Room Tip: As above, we felt it was worth going for gold. Foxy Club was a hit with the kids and the meals in the bar are very good value. And in the swimming pool, the heater is in the children's end...

The view from our Safari Tent was amazing and it had everything we needed for our break including real beds, dining table and a kitchen! We also had a couple of camping pods for our party which was perfect for sleeping 4 people in each and were like extra bedrooms on the same field. The park was clean and tidy and staff were very friendly and helpful....kids club was ace and all the kids really enjoyed the games with the stripeys and meeting the characters. Outdoor pool was very clean......although a little chilly this time of year!

Hello AH

Yet another 5 star review for Glamping at Sandaway, thank you, we really appreciate it. Your comments have been passed onto all departments.

We are very fortunate with the position of the glamping field and I am delighted to read how much you enjoyed the view.

With regard to the pool, the water temperature is kept very warm at a constant 27degrees, and large numbers of people enjoy it this time of the year - simply make sure that you have something warm to keep out the April air when you get out.

I feel sure that the experience was such that you will come back and see us again very soon.

Booked a safari tent and camping pod at this park. Amazing location overlooking the sea, the view is such a wow you'd be hard pushed to find better. Pod was toasty and warm and tent was well equipped with little kitchen, beds, sofa, table & chairs. Lovely to lie in bed listening to the sea. Toilet block clean and only a minutes walk away, park well maintained and staff friendly. Stripey Joe & Tom did a great job entertaining the kids. Would recommend.

Hello C.A.W.

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

Our Glamping field is proving to be very popular and I am delighted that you were one of the first to experience its unique position.

We are very lucky with the location of our park in such a beautiful part of the Devon Coast 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.
