What a wonderful clean, and tidy, spacious site, with all the facilities, and a extremely large dog walk with a hot shower and hair dryer for the pampered dog, (essential after a day on the beach).
Can't say enough about Mark and Helen, who are both very hands on, but always have time to chat and help.
Ross Park is a wonderful site to stay on. The site itself is immaculate. The gardens, baskets and flower beds are all very well kept and when we were there the flowers were beautiful. The grass is always kept neat and tidy and the nature areas are great for children to explore with information points for the to read on the way round. The bins are emptied regularly throughout the day and the washing and waste points are kept clean at all times. The toilet facilities are the cleanest i have ever seen on a site and if you have babies or small children the bathrooms with baby baths, changing tables and seats are amazing. I don't know how i would have coped without them with my 8 month old!!. I would recommend Ross Park to everyone: August in 2011
Having only been caravanning for about 12 months we tended to stick with local club site which are nice. For our summer holiday we booked Ross Park in Devon.
upon arrival we pulled into the site, where the staff promptly unhitched the van for us, hitched it to their small tractor and proceeded to take my caravan to its pitch and level it up absolutely perfectly.
This was an absolute delight having traveled for nearly 6 hours.
The site itself is absolutely delightful, with avenues of flowers, which are elegantly lit at night to light the path ways.Facilities on site include a bar, restaurant (food was high quality standard), beautiful conservatory which you would think had been taken from Kew gardens. There is a small games room for the children and a well kept play area in the leisure field. The only criticism of this is that it could do with some play activities for slightly older children.
For dog owners the park boasts two dog walks, one in the orchard and one larger wooded field overlooking the views beyond.
having ventured further afield and tried Ross Park , we have decided to pre book here again for next year. One word - FANTASTIC.
ross park is the nicest and most colourful of parks we have stayed on,the toilet,s and showers are to a very high standard would go as far to say no other park could come close to them,the owner,s helen and mark are very pleasant as well has helpful,the grounds of the whole park are kept very clean and tidy,no longer has a tourer left there pitch mark and his team are there to rake the gravel,and cut the grass if needed,we have already booked for two week this august(2011)also october for a week,and are counting down the weeks to when we will be there.: July in 2010
Spent nearly 2 weeks here and had a great time. On arrival caravan was towed to the pitch and sited by the owner.
Lovely well maintained site. A lot of thought has gone into this site.
There is even a Cheery tree orchard ad the cherries are free.
At the time of our visit there were not many kids staying which was a bit of a blow for our 8 yr old daughter.
Only downside would be that kids must use the play field for all games, bikes etc which doesn't allow parents to sit on the pitch and watch the kids....but not the end of the world.
Would recommend this site to anyone.
This site is excellent, the best we have ever stayed at. The owners cannot do enough to make your stay a pleasant one. Our dog was in his element, able to run off the lead in designated areas. The facilities are second to none and it has a very good restaurant. We could be served in the conservatory which does allow dogs. The views of Dartmoor were superb especially in the evenings when we watched the sun setting behind the moors. This is an ideal site for exploring South Devon. Only one problem. You need to book so far in advance to get a space on the site.

I wish there was a 6th star for this park.
Great reception on arrival and have to say it is a stunning park, with flowers everywhere and a nice warm feel to the place.
What else can i say? Pitches great, toilets clean, loads of open space if you have children or dogs, even a dog shower, dont have a dog but can imagine it is useful!
Thank you for a great holiday

This has to be one of the best parks in the country . From the moment you arrive you cannot fail to be impressed by the cleanliness of the park and the helpfulness of it's staff , nothing is too much trouble .
On arrival you are shown to your pitch and your caravan is sited for you , pitches are mostly divided by small hedges and both grass and hard standing are available, most have there own water supply .
The toilet and showers consist of a number of self contained cubicles with shower,toilet and washbasin and a number of more conventional type shower cubicles, all are immaculately clean.
The park has a small restaurant and bar which serves food each evening except Tuesday and a Sunday lunch second to none in the area , all are reasonably priced.
Children are catered for with a wonderful play area and for older kid's there are table tennis tables , a pool table and a room with video games and TV .
The park has views of Dartmoor and a walk around the park with it's conservation areas and beautiful flower displays is a treat in itself .
Four legged friends are welcome, indeed it is a doggy heaven with a dog walk that has to be seen to be believed and even their own shower! .
Open from March through until Christmas and New Year this park is worth a visit at any time of the year .
Arriving at the Park for the first time, we didn't know what to expect. No problem; you are greeted with a smile and friendly greeting and if you are wrinklies, like us, in need of any help with setting up, it is freely offered. We found all the staff exhibited the same level of cheerfulness and friendliness and the Park was like one big family. The beautifully manicured lawns, wonderful flower beds and baskets help to create a peaceful, tranquil atmosphere. When sitting out you are likely to be visited by baby rabbits who know they have nothing to fear; we watched Robins feeding their young, a Blackbird busily collecting material for her nest, and - goodness me - where else would you see a Jay outside of a densely wooded area?
The facilities are second to none; if you do not want to leave the site, there is no need to as everything imaginable has been provided for your comfort and convenience. From games rooms for the more active to a quiet seating area in the lovely restaurant where you can read, play board games, and even make yourself a cup of tea or coffee if you so wish. The food in the restaurant is excellent and the bar prices put most pubs and restaurants to shame!
We believe Ross Park is one of the best value for money sites it is possible to find; coupled with pristine facilities, wonderful staff, the most attractive extensive grounds - believe me, if you are a caravanner and haven't visited Ross Park, then you really haven't lived!

Excellent service is routine at this site. After a friendly welcome, the staff will take your caravan to your pitch for you, and even level it.
The thoughtfulness extends to the layout of the pitches and the facilities. All pitches have electric hook-up and many also have a water point. Some are surrounded by hedges for increased privacy, and you have a choice of grass or hardstanding.
The washroom is heated and has facilities for families and the disabled. A separate dishwashing area and launderette are also provided. The hot water for all of these facilities is free.
This welcoming feel and the beautiful views over Dartmoor National Park and the surrounding countryside will tempt you to stay on site. The facilities, such as a shop, make your stay stress-free, and for fun there is a play area, games room, badminton and volleyball.
During the day the lounge provides a quiet place to read, while at night you can dine in the restaurant or just enjoy a few drinks in the bar. The site also has a tropical observatory, where you can watch housemartins or enjoy a cuppa.
Dogs are just as welcome as people here; the site has a dog shower as well as a dog walk.
If you do want to explore the local area, the site is a great base. It is just outside Newton Abbot, which puts it between Torquay
and Dartmoor National Park.
Torquay, the heart of the English Riviera, offers all the fun of the seaside and excellent family entertainment on the promenade.
On Dartmoor the walking is among the best in the UK. As
well as the rugged landscape
and high tors, you will find cob-and-thatch villages, green valleys and spectacular waterfalls.

Owned and run by Mark and Helen Lowe for the past ten years, this well maintained and beautifully landscaped park has built up a reputation for being the best in the area. The Lowes’ philosophy is simple: offer good-value holidays coupled with clean and tidy facilities and your guests will return time and again. This idea clearly works, as the couple are justly proud to see familiar faces coming back year after year to enjoy their hospitality once again.
Each of the 110 pitches at Ross Park has an individual feel to it, and many have a superb view
of nearby Dartmoor and the surrounding countryside.
Among the many top-notch facilities offered on this 26-acre site is a nature observatory, where you can watch housemartins nesting in season. Dogs are not only welcome, they are positively pampered – Ross Park offers that rare facility, a dog shower.
There is some low-level road noise evident within the park, but perhaps this is the price you pay for its convenient location; just off the Newton Abbot-to-Totnes main road. The park is ideally situated for exploring Dartmoor or enjoying the seaside holiday fun at Torbay.

Practical Motorhome Independent Site Reviews.
Ross Park has spotless facilities, friendly owners, panoramic views and the floral displays out of this world. On arrival, you are welcomed to the site and escorted to your pitch. Throughout your stay, the resident owners, Mark and Helen Lowe, are always on hand to ensure that you get the most out of your holiday.
With only 110 pitches spread out over 26 acres, there is an overwhelming sense of space. The huge tracts of free land are excellent for spotting wildlife, playing games, walking your dog or simply watching the sun set.
In the spring, you can stroll through a sea of daffodils in the cherry orchard. Later, when the trees are laden with cherries, visitors are welcome to pick fruit.
Unusually for a small site, there is a bar and an à la carte restaurant. The meals are good value, and use fresh vegetables from the park's own garden.
The light and airy conservatory attached to the restaurant is filled with vines and tropical plants, making it a pleasant place to read the morning's papers. Outside, a herb garden is available to those who want to do their own cooking, with guidance given by staff on how to use them in your cooking.
For days away from the site, there's plenty to see and do.
The park's location, near Newton Abbot, means that all the important tourist areas of Devon are within easy driving distance. To the north and east lie Teignmouth and Exmouth, and Torbay and the stunning Devon coast is not far to the east. To the west is the stunning bleak beauty of Dartmoor, with its hardy ponies and charming villages, and there's more exhilarating coastline and interesting places such as Salcombe further south.
This site is one-of-a-kind, which is friendly, sophisticated, and has some original touches.
