Here is something that you may be interested in.... cashback on shopping and savings on household bills.  I was...  save money now, spend more on holiday!  Sounds good to me.

Brrrr...  The cold weather is on it's way!  A great time to be thinking of next Summer's camping trip when we will hopefully be basking in the warm gulf stream air that our part of the world is well known for.  We have the new tariff online now and have kept the inevitable increase as low as possible - some things have not gone up for a few years now.

The other big news is that our NEW website is well on the way and should be live in the New Year so bookmark us and surf by again...

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

IMPORTANT!! We will be opening on Friday June 1st in 2012 to tie in with the revised Whitsun Bank Holiday, Half-term, Jubilee week and the spectacular Dawlish Airshow now brought forward from August to Friday June 8th.

Another season over and the grass is recovering well already thanks to some fantastic weather - typical!  Thanks to all who stayed with us this summer - hope to see you in 2012.

29 August 2011

Amazing to think that this time next week we will be locking the gates for the winter!  The season has flown by and with little rain too.  The Bank Holiday weekend was busy as we expected and now visitors begin to return home to work and school leaving loads of empty pitches.  This is a a great time to grab a few days away before we close.  Don't forget we have our 4 nights for the price of 3 from tomorrow (Tuesday) and we drop back to low season tariff - bargain!

25 August 2011

We are full for Friday and Saturday but may get a cancellation so give us a call with your credit/debit card handy, just in case. Afternoon entertainment and live music this evening before the fireworks at 9.15pm.  Forecast is looking good so fingers crossed!

20 August 2011

Well what a great week Carnival has been!  Sadly the Red Arrow were waterlogged at Bournemouth because of the torrential rain there on Thursday and could not take off in time for the Dawlish Airshow - there's always next year.  Looking ahead we have our Dawlish Warren Summer Fireworks spectacular this Thursday 25th.  The fun starts at 1pm and runs during the afternoon and early evening with local band "Badlake" playing live just ahead of the Fireworks at 9.15pm.

We still have a few spaces for the Bank Holiday weekend so give us a call! 01626 864411.

Bertie has had his op and he is making a slow recovery that will take months.  Very little exercise needed, now that will be a problem as he is (always) keen to go out for "walkies"!

Where has the season gone..., we'll be hanging the gates up on Monday 5th September so see if you can squeeze in one last visit before we do.  Always pleased to see visitors after the Bank Holiday as most folk are back to work / school - loads of space for everyone who does pitch-up, you'll have to share it with the bunnies though!

Happy Camping


8 August 2011

Where did the last month go...  Plenty of sun and the odd showery day just what we should expect I suppose.  Carnival next week with the Airshow on Thursday and Grand Procession on Friday evening.  Loads of other stuff in town from Saturday too.  hardly any space left at Leadstone now until Friday 19th and ok for Bank Holiday weekend too - give us a call!

Just had to take Bertie to the vets as he was quite stiff on his right hind leg - another op. for him, this time he has a ruptured cruceat(?) ligament.  He has had arthritis there for 12 months or so and apparently this has not helped.  He was out playing in the river at Teigngrace on one of his favourite walks last week and must have just caught his leg on a stone or something.  He has made a great recovery from his major op in May so this really is unlucky! Jack and Bertie have not been at the site too often this summer as it has been too hot but Jack (if not Bertie) will hopefully be there over the next few weeks.

Just looked at the calendar and noticed that 4 weeks today we will be closed for the winter....  Only seems like yesterday we were un-hanging the gates!

Don't forget to check the tariff page for our remaining Special Offers...

See you before we close?

9 July 2011

4 weeks in to the season and we have enjoyed some great weather and some not so great!  Still that is a typical English summer I suppose!  More bookings for 2013 too, yes 2013! I am pleased to say that we still have pitches available for carnival week (13-21 August) - it is a great week with masses of free entertainment in town and plenty on at the Warren too.  The Airshow is on Thursday and the Grand Procession on Friday evening.

Don't forget if you can only manage 3 or 4 days away then that is fine with us - just give us a call with your debit/credit card handy!  We seem to have had our fair share of South West Coast path walkers stay for 1 night this season - if we have the space you can just pitch up.  Fit lot these folk - I was built for comfort -not speed and agility... 

Don't forget we have various Special Offers on so check the Tariff page to see if you qualify - at the moment 7 nights for price of 5 (ends 23 July).

"Be careful what you wish for!"... I suggested a drop of rain would be helpful but didn't count on rain all day on Sunday - sorry folks.  The plus side is that the fields are looking lush!  Great to see you all again on our "opener".  Bertie has been the topic of a number of conversations and I am pleased to say he is doing well - hopefully he will be putting in regular appearances at the site.

I don't know what I am doing next month let alone next year... but some of you are really organised: Sarah took our first booking and deposit for 2013, yes you read it correctly... 2013!


2 June 2011

Just over a week to go!  The site is looking great, if a little "parched".  Could do with a drop of rain to green the grass!  Bertie has been under the weather these last few weeks, he had a nasty "growth" removed but thankfully it was benign.  The vet has patched him up well so fingers crossed for the future.  He and Jack love the campsite and have been out "helping" us get it ready.  The rabbits have been keeping Jack busy - he just can't run as fast as they do!  Looking ahead to the season bookings are still coming in thick and fast so if you have not made your mind up don't leave it too late....

See you next Friday?

1 June 2011


At the end of this month the cheque card guarantee scheme ends so we will no longer be able to accept cheques ON ARRIVAL. So please have cash or debit/credit card handy. We will continue to accept cheques for deposits.

28 March 2011

For all you Bertie and Jack fans there are some new pictures of them here.

9 March 2011

Hope you have had a great start to the year and looking forward to the long hot summer and plenty of camping trips!  Just getting the event dates together so the What's On page should be updated later this week and added to as the season moves on - keep an eye on it.  A few notable dates for your diary though.... Dawlish Carnival Week 13-21 August:  Air show Thursday 18th, Grand Procession Friday 19th and the Dawlish Warren annual Fireworks Spectacular, again on Thursday 25th August just before August Bank Holiday - make it a long weekend!

Just beginning to sort the site out - cut the grass last Friday for the first time.  Looks in great condition!  Bookings - coming in at the fastest rate ever!  As soon as you know your dates give Sarah a ring with your deposit - don't leave it too late or you may be disappointed.

Bert and Jack have had a great winter with plenty of walks and adventures - I will try an put up some pics on their page if I can get them off my camera - where did I put the connecting lead???


Dawlish Carnival Week 13-21 August:  Air show Thursday 18th, Grand Procession Friday 19th
