Hi,this is our first year with our caravan, and although we stayed pretty much local this year we would like to go further afield next year. We are from lincolnshire which to its credit has some brill sites, and is good for Skeggy, however next year i want to go to Devon, Dawlish area, freinds have recommended the 'Lady's Mile Camp'i just want to know if any one knows of a few more that are close to the beach, have good facilities and entertainment on site, our kids are 14 & 12 yrs, and as you know at that age boredom can set in very quick, also any advice on when would be best time to travel down, and any advice on how to organise such a big trip would be very appreciated.

Went to Dawlish Warren last year (PEPPERMINT PARK). Site is at sea level, no hills to climb! Park very clean & tidy, entertainment on site, and also small fishing lake. Stroll's along the sea front to Dawlish are relaxing, with the exception of the traffic from the Cornish & Devon main railway. The park is only 20mins from the M5 at Exeter.

There are many excellent sites in the Devon area, it all depends what you are looking for. I would suggest south Devon - north Devon very boring, generally more hilly and does not enjoy the sunshine like the south.

Try Beverly Park in Paignton (Goodrington Road) - should you experience bad weather there is still plenty for the children - indoor swimming pool, amusements, club activities and goodness knows what else. For a quieter holiday try Widend at Marldon - just outside Paignton. This is an excellent site with plenty for the children if fine weather - not so much here for wet weather. The site and amenities are spotless.

Your bets bet for travelling is the M5 motorway. Although very busy in the holiday season if you travel mid week and not week ends you should be O.K. At Exeter take the A380 for Torquay. Dual carraige way as far as Newton Abbot. Gaurenteed to hit heavy traffic on road between Newton Abbot and Torquay Ring Road - no way to avoid this area.

Where ever you go enjoy your selves.

You could enquire about Napps, which is inland from Watermouth Cove, terraced pictures on hilly terain, swimming pool, takeaway. Toilets used to be a tad primitive! How about Ramslade, a MUC with CC, HAS to be recommended. Handy for the end of M5 by Exeter is Holman's Wood, SUPER although you do get some nosie from the A38. Personally I find Dawlish a quaint smaller town with character, the railway running right along the front, black swans on the stream... but Dawlish Warren is the beach and caravanville.

Hi Wayne, if your kids like natural adventure, try The River Dart Country Park in Ashburton, about 15-20 miles south of Dawlish, just off the A38. It's full of zip slides, cut log climbing, forts, horse riding, heated open air pool, club house, take away, TV/film room etc, great washblocks. We used to go there every Easter with our 3 kids when they were from about 8-18, and they always enjoyed it. Pretty challenging for Mum & Dad too!
