MIDLOTHIAN

1.0 stars

A tidy & quiet site with lovely views over the River Dart. It is ideally situated for exploring the Torbay area. The site is on a very steep slope which make it practically impossible for anyone camping in a tent to be comfortable. I suppose you can always sleep with your head up the hill. Breeze blocks are a must for levelling off touring caravans. This also causes real problems when trying to set up your awning. The toilet block is at the far end of the campsite on top of a slope, which is pretty slippy at times. The toilets appeared clean enough, however they could really do with modernising. Push button for the showers and taps which lasts a couple of seconds is not ideal and even more worrying is the lack of temperature control. The most annoying feature is having the dirty water form the person next to you when showering splashing all over your feet and up your legs when trying to get dry and dressed. The village itself, needs to be avoided when towing at school times.

What a lovely site! We'd defiantely recommend it. We are a young couple in our mid 20's and enjoyed a lovely two week stay at the site at the end of August. The site was stunning - the view was even more spectacular than the photos! It was just what the adverts said - a quiet, friendly site. We chose it specifically because we didn't want loud entertainment, and it was beautifully quiet. There was a slight problem in the wash block (which is palatial!), but this was sorted quickly and efficiently. We found the staff very friendly and helpful. They had a tourist information centre on site, and gave us lots of advice about the local attractions. The recommendation for the local shops and two pubs within walking distance in the village were very accurate. There's lots to do in the local area - either with the car or with public transport, so there was plenty to keep us happy for the two weeks. We're planning to go back again next year.

We are a couple in our 20's. We looked at several camping options in the Brixham area for a week's holiday. We used the internet as our resource just as you are now. Galmpton touring park looked like just our sort of place and the description of the park and facilities on their website were very attractive. Here are the main features of the site that they miss out of their marketing: Camping area is situated on a sloping hillside so you wake up in the morning, your bed having moved in the night. Tourers will need some big blocks under the wheels. Toilet/Shower block is on top of a hill within the site which has two steep slopes or a set of steps leading to it. They DO NOT freeze your ice blocks. They do however offer a service where you borrow blocks for £1 refundable deposite and 30p refreeze charge PER BLOCK. No thankyou. The site stresses that it is a quiet family site which chooses not to have a clubhouse or pool for this reason. Sounds nice??, don't be fooled, it's as noisy as any other site...only at this one they choose to police their anti-noise rules inconsistantly, choosing only to ask the people they feel they would least offend (young couples etc.) to turn down their barely audible wind-up radio at 4pm. The site encourages you to use local shops for your food and the local pubs for your evening out, which is a nice idea. But (strangely) close the gate on you at 11:15 pm so you can't drive to your tent/tourer. Only 15mins after last orders! One thing I have to mention is the showers..HOTTTT!!!, children were crying and climbing back out of ths showers as their parents were unable to control the temperature of the single push button on the wall. oh, and there is only one soap dispenser and hand dryer in the whole block which has approx 10 wash basins. Don't get me wrong, this site has some beautiful views of the River Dart and is in a good location if you don't mind driving (well, queing). The staff are reasonably polite and friendly. They just need to focus there efforts on the more important things about making people's holidays great.

What an excellent caravan site. the facilities are excellent, and the welcome you receive is like no other, very warm and friendly. The views are brilliant of the river dart, the park is excellent for the children too. This site is a must if you want a friendly, welcoming site that has excellent facilites for all.
