“Great site, recommend!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 August 2014

My husband and I actually made a mistake with the dates of our booking so we needed a pitch a day earlier than we thought! Luckily the site catered for us by putting us on another pitch for our first night, then allowing us to move the next day for the rest of our stay.

The amenities building really was '5-star', we were both impressed with the facilities and the cleanliness! The amount of awards on the walls says it all! Great site, and the staff were so helpful and friendly.

We found it a generally quiet site, we stayed in Ash Grove which is away from the road noise people have commented on.

The only downside was, my husband would have preferred a swimming pool at the site but it wouldn't stop us from using the site again or recommending to others.

Room Tip: ash grove quiet and away from the road noise

Just returned after another super-stay at Oakdown. We've been many times, the park is always well maintained and clean, shower / bathroom facilities are modern, clean & always in working order (we've visited quite a few times now).
Staff are always friendly, happy to help and always not far away if you need anything.
We've stayed on both Beach Grove and Oak Row now. If you're in a larger group I would suggest staying on Beach Grove, although this is the more exposed of the two camping areas it's better for get-togethers. We stayed in Oak Row which is next to Road, although not a problem as we were in a Camper Van. Oak Row is quieter and Beach Grove more for younger families.
My partner & Son played Golf a few times which they really enjoyed.
On-Site Cafe serves your standard fayre of paninis, pasties, cakes etc but all fresh & fairly priced.
Both my Children (aged 8 & 10) enjoyed both the parks & the Games Room when it rained.
All in All fab weekend, good base to explore the area or just chill-out on site - we'll be back!!

Room Tip: If you're travelling with a group with younger children stay in Beach Grove and ask for Pitch cl...

My sister , my dog and myself stayed here for two nights last month. It was very easy to book over the phone with very helpful people. When we arrived we were shown to our pitch and made very welcome. The site has excellent facilities. The washrooms were better than lots of hotels. Very clean everywhere. The only drawback was the busy road behind us. Apart from that we enjoyed our stay very much

We have just returned from a week camping at Oakdown, a lovely, clean, peaceful site. The Hopper bus into Sidmouth is a useful free service (the driver accepts donations). Shower/wc facilities are excellent - no spiders in the corners as is usual on campsites! Staff went out of their way to help us when we had a problem.

Stayed two nights here. Very impressed with the welcome, the facilities and the huge amount of space between pitches. Also there is a free shuttle bus to Sidmouth every couple of hours which was excellent. Only one problem for me is the road that the site is on is very busy and very noisy. Otherwise first class and one of the best sites we have stayed on.

Room Tip: Get a pitch away from the road if you are light sleepers.

Service with a smile on arrival! Escorted to pitch and shown all amenities and asked to let them know if there was anything they could do to ensure we enjoyed our stay. Amenities impeccably clean and plenty of tools and everything necessary to clean up after your use. Net result is the clients respond appropriately. Super friendly and professional staff. We cannot recommend this site enough. All camp sites should be this good!

Having booked into Oakdown for our first ever caravan trip we were very nervous! The site staff couldn't have been better - friendly and helpful; nothing seemed too much trouble. The pitches are all flat and spacious. The showers and toilet block are more akin to a hotel then a campsite! The site is located close to the donkey sanctuary (a free attraction) and not far for a day trip to Exeter or Lyme Regis. No wonder this site appears in the Best of Britain list! We are definitely returning and I am sure this will become a regular destination for us as a family!
