To Find Site:- From A38 from the Exeter direction exit at junction for A374.At roundabout at end of slip road take third right (traffic signal controlled)  Almost immediately take second left (brown campsite sign) into Longbridge Road, which is partly one way. Turn right down the side of the large Next Store, this road will lead you to the campsite which is on the right in about half a mile.

This campsite is situated in an attractive wooded valley on the edge of the City of Plymouth, it is open all year. There are around 200 pitches, many of them hardstandings but there are some grass pitches for those that prefer around the perimeter of the site. Whilst some of the hardstanding have a standard gravel base some have a section of concrete plus another strip of gravel. There is a mix of standard and serviced pitches although the latter appear to be no larger. Spacing between pitches I thought was a bit tight, fine if you are using the site as a base but probably not so good if using the site as a holiday destination? Pitches are allocated on arrival. There are some seasonal pitches. The campsite stipulates that units with their habitation door on the Continental side should go in forward and those with door on the UK side should reverse onto a pitch. As with other campsite rules this doesn’t seem to be adhered to by all! Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 10 amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. There are two toilet blocks, not the most modern but functional and clean. Some of the toilet cubicles also have wash basins. Chemical toilet emptying is situated at either toilet block. The block nearest reception has the motorhome service point. On site there is a bar/restaurant and takeaway, we tried the latter and it was good. Next to the takeaway is a swimming pool. A few essentials are sold at reception. There appears to be  site WiFi although we didn’t make use of it. 4G signal is not particularly strong but I was able to tether it to my laptop.

The attraction of this site is its location close to Plymouth, either to visit the local area and the City or perhaps an overnight stay before a ferry to France. If you want to leave your unit on site you can take the bus into Plymouth but you do have three-quarter miles walk to get to the bus stop. The number 50 service takes you into the Centre and the 51 is the bus you need to get back. Marsh Miles shopping area is at the end of the drive to the site and a little beyond there is a large Sainsburys supermarket. For railway enthusiasts the Plym Valley Railway is about a one mile walk from the site along the river.
