With beautiful floral displays and acres of parkland, you're assured a warm welcome at this award winning campsite in Devon.
Ross Park Caravan Park has been rated as the best campsite in Devon according to the Top 100 Sites Guide 2014 from Caravan Sitefinder, Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome. Devon is a very popular destination for camping, motorhome and caravan holidays, so to scoop the top spot in this hotly contested region is no mean feat. Visitors praised this campsite for being very colourful and well presented, for the kindness of the helpful staff, for its first class facilities and for the attention to detail that is clear across the site.
Near Newton Abbot, Ross Park is a campsite exclusively for touring units, with superb views over Dartmoor. It welcomes families and couples alike, and pitch privacy is key to the site’s layout. All the 110 hardstanding pitches include electric hook-ups, with many supplying water and drainage, too. A centrally heated amenity block includes baby-changing and disabled facilities, while elsewhere on site guests can indulge in the New Barn Restaurant, or simply enjoy books and board games in the lounge or the adjoining Tropical Conservatory. A chemical disposal point, a laundry and washing up facilities are available, too.
This is also an extremely dog friendly campsite, so bring your four-legged friend to enjoy your camping and caravan holidays. However, owners must clean up after their dogs, keep them under control and keep them on a lead when on site. In addition, guests will be pleased to know that Wi-Fi is available.
Outside, play areas and wildlife reserves will keep children entertained for hours, while a bus stop located 150m from the site entrance will transport you around the local area if you want to leave your car or motorhome on site.
Ross Park Caravan Park sits close to the village of Ipplepen, which is about a 15- or 20-minute walk, or less than a five-minute drive from the campsite. With a pub, a post office and a shop, there's enough here to top up your holiday supplies and to keep you fed – or maybe give you a night off from cooking. If you're in need of a more substantial settlement, Newton Abbot is about a 10-minute drive away. The market town is famous for its Cheese and Onion Fayre in honour of St Leonard held in September, plus you can have a day at the races at Newton Abbot Racecourse, or enjoy time wandering through and soaking up the natural beauty of Decoy Country Park.
But that's not all. The famous coastal resort of Torquay is less than half an hour from this campsite by car. Indeed, all of the English Riviera is waiting for you to explore it when you're pitched at Ross Park Caravan Park. Paignton, with its beach and zoo, is only about 20 minutes by car from site, pretty Brixham a little further afield, but still half to three quarters of an hour from the campsite by car.
However, arguably the largest draw to those spending their camping, motorhome and caravan holidays in Devon at Ross Park is Dartmoor. The campsite sits a little way to the south east of Dartmoor National Park, so when pitched here, why not discover the wild and mysterious beauty of this vast area of moorland. There are organised tours or you can go your own way, on foot, two wheels or horseback. Catch breathtaking views that will make your holiday all the more memorable.
