Noise from the Christies entertainment area got louder as the night went on. You could not hear the live acts but come the disco the noise could be heard on occasions until gone midnight inside your caravan. Not very family friendly. Caravans are also packed far too closely together.

This site is overcrowded with caravans which has ruined a, otherwise, beautiful south Devon valley.

It is looking tired. The outdoor furniture needs a good sanding down and repainting (it would make hell of difference). Needs new toilet facilities, updating etc.
