Hi I have just spent another glorious week at South Breazle. The campsite is just fantastic , it is well designed and thought out, brilliant shower block lots of room hot powerful showers. The welcome is always lovely I can not recommend it enough. Lovely dog walking too. Thank you Sally
Just wanted to say we had a great weekend down with you this last weekend. Blessed by the weather, glad to find the facilities still very good quality, enjoyed places we had been before, just sorry not to have the shop for sweets, but hey, we came prepared.
Well, this is a hard review to write. I almost want to say shhhhhh, its a secret! Just returned from a weekend camping with our two small children. We all loved it. The children loved the fun fountain.....some free entertainment, thank you. The showers and toilets are so clean and well thought out. The family bathroom is great, enough space for me to shower both little ones and again spotlessly clean, as is the washing up room. The pitches are huge, plenty of room for our family tent, vehicle, table and chairs. Lots of space for the children to play. We were pleased not to be overloaded with lots of rules, just a few sensible points. Probably the best campsite we have ever stayed on. Thank you so much. Lisa
Hi Louise and Steve
We would like to say thank you once again for a great holiday. Your site is first class in every way and we would certainly recommend it to anyone who would like a quiet and peaceful holiday. The site is small, friendly and very clean. The pitches are very generous in size and have superb views. There is plenty of open space for all the children to play safely. Your toilets and showers are like being at home they are so clean.
We look forward to returning to South Breazle again.
Hi, Louise and Steve,
Many thanks for a relaxing fortnight, the site is a credit to you both, and to your cleaner who keeps the shower and toilet facility's spotless.
I don't think we will be able to get down again this year but will be back next year

Dear South Breazle,
2 years ago we came to your camp as our 1st venture into camping. We came back again after visiting many more. All I can say is we have used yours ever since and called it the Breazle scale.
1 to 10. 1 being no where as nice as your place to 10 being another Breazle. Outstanding as always.
Be warned however I have found fault the shower blocks have a pull sign to go in on the doors when it should say push!! Gasp!!
Excellent see you again soon
First of all I would on behalf of myself my family, thank both of you for your massive support is the initial storage of our caravan, as the newest member to caravanning your support was so so needed. Also we have just enjoyed our first weekend [Easter weekend] with you and it was ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!!!!!!!! The pitch was perfect the shower area is first class, and your service in getting our van onto the pitch brilliant When it comes to customer service there are a lot of sites that could learn a lot from those little special touches & help that you gave Especially contacting the local chippy to ensure that it was open for us on our first night, made all the difference to what turned out to be an amazing weekend.
The weather was brilliant and I am so already looking forward to the many weekends and holidays we will be spending with you all. We have already booked a week with you in August [cant wait!!!] and we are already looking for weekend availability for the rest of the season.
What took our breath away was the quiet countryside broken only by birdsong, perfect peaceful and just what we wanted, and also the clear unpolluted [by lighting] night sky I have never seen the constellations so crystal clear, something that ill remember for a long long time.
Take care our new friends and looking forward to seeing you very very soon
Karen, Adam & Stephen
Hi Louise, once again an enjoyable time at your campsite, we had peaceful nights looking up at the beautiful stars and fun packed days, Widemouth Bay x2 which the kids loved- body boarding, especially our son who is 12 and gets bored easy likes to be on the go...and a visit to Adrenalin Quarry near Liskeard the UKs longest zip wire,a day out to Pelperro pretty little harbour. 2 yummy dinners at the Clovelly Inn booked in advance! And one evening take away fish chips from the Codfather in Launceston very nice all cooked from fresh. And then back to the campsite for a nice warm shower, very pleased with your facilities. An enjoyable 4 days(not long enough though!) thanks again from..Becky,Doug,Robert& Amy Mitchell

We only stayed for a weekend break but such a lovely friendly, quiet site the best shower block we have ever been in!!! Very clean and spacious, the pitches are exactly the same with lots of room between pitches, highly recommended to visit, Steve, Louise and family will give you a friendly welcome, and very helpfull if you need any help, or have any problems.
Dave & Lin Murphy
Would just like to thank you for providing such a wonderful campsite. We had a fantastic time, despite the weather. Can highly recommend it to anyone wanting a quiet break in beautiful countryside. You were always friendly and helpful with any enquiries, and any problems were quickly resolved. Will definitely be back.
Shonagh, Richard Archie Murton
Hi We camped at South Breazle last weekend and despite the awful weather (!) we had a great time. Your campsite is the best one we have been to, with the massive individually marked out pitches and the extremely large and spotlessly clean showers and toilets. We brought our kayak with us, which we used on Roadstar Lake with no problems at all. We have booked up another 3 nights at the beginning of September and look forward to coming back hopefully with better weather this time!

We would like to thankyou for a wonderful holiday we had a great time on your campsite it was the most peaceful one we have been on. The facilities are great our daughter loved the fun fountain. It's a great base for exploring Devon and Cornwall, would like to thank Louise for the daily weather report and directions to places we wanted to visit .Hopefully be back later in the year thanks again

Hello, We will be coming down to stay in a couple of days. All I will say is that if it is as easy as your booking process, then I am sure we will have a great time. Many thanks Jeff and Jax and kids
I have just booked for a few days after Easter and I just wanted to say what a pleasure it was to use your web site. It is informative and easy to use. I particularly liked the pitch booking page. We look forward to seeing you in a couple of weeks

Hi Louise Steve family.
Just a quick word to say, thank you so much for a wonderful 6 days. We shall be back next year.
Have to say, the showers are better than many 4 star hotels (stayed in many, when working on the road for years). I would have thought i had died & gone to heaven, to a shower like yours.( John did nothing but moan every time he got back from the showers in Cornwall.
Steve, thank you, for the wood to hold the caravan steady, when a leg gave way, when other one went a couple of days later.( the wood was god send.) What with the jocky wheel being stolen, two front steadies & a blow out on way home. ( tracking out, so 2 new tyres) plus brake pads & discs, its been a bit painful on the plastic. Good luck for what is left of season. I will be in contact in new year. to book for summer. Have been giving your details out, right left centre.
Coral John Hamilton.
Enjoyed our first year back at caravaning for 25 years. Louise and Steve are great people and deserve the success that they strive for, they work hard at their jobs and the campsite is a credit to them both. We will be back next year.

Hello Louise and family. We stayed for 2 weeks in July. The children had great fun in the water fountains and looking around the farm. The site is safe enough for the children to go and play by themselves, giving parents chance to have a cup of tea. The showers were hot and clean. If you had any problems they were dealt with very quickly We were so happy, relaxed and 2 children who didn't want to go home, that we are going back in 2008 for another 2 weeks.
Tim, Debbie, Andrea and Bryony
Hi louise and family I would like to say how much we enjoyed our stay this year at your beautiful site. The fun fountain was a big hit with the kids the addition of the washing machine and tumble dryer was great and everything was at just the same high standard as last year when we stayed. Keep up the good work hope to see you again soon. Hope the chickens have got over their shock and are laying again as they are great eggs when they come.

Thankyou Louise & Steve for an absolutely fantastic holiday. When our children were small & we only had an ordinary tent and were basically sleeping on the floor i thought it had put me off camping for life but since we have recently bought a second hand trailer tent and are now off the ground my confidence in this very popular way of holidaying has been restored completely. Your campsite was idyllic, lovely surroundings, superb top quality shower block/toilets. As our children are now almost grown up and we had ourselves to ourselves for the first time on holiday it was truly relaxing and tranquil - for all of those of you who still have young families there is light at the end of the tunnel. No, on a serious note we could see the children were having great fun in their natural surroundings, no pressure on parents to spend huge amounts of money. For all of those who haven't visited you yet, its a great site ideal for all, the first time we've been able to truly relax with no pressure around us. Lovely pub just down the road to go in the evenings for a superb meal and hospitality, would need to drive down the lane, a bit far to walk.
Hope to see you again soon, thanks very much Ronnie & Gary Pearson.
Hi My family and I stayed at South Breazle this last week and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of our stay. You have fantastic( and clean) facilities, a great space for the children to play around, and is so peaceful and relaxing. In just the right area to do the tourist attractions too.
We look forward to seeing you again next August.
Just to say that you have got everything on your site absolutely spot on. We were down at the end of July with friends and despite the weather, we had a wonderful time and both families will be back next year.

Just wanted to thank you for contributing to our great holiday in Devon with your hospitality and the wonderful camp site you run. We will certainly recommend you to our family and friends. Got home about 7.00.p.m. - long hot journey, but taken many memories of your lovely part of England with us and hopefully will be back again soon Still didn't think of what I had to tell you Louise - probably come to me in the middle of the night and keep me awake! Thanks very much for all the nights you spent doing the sun dance for us!!
Take care both
Ruth and Roy Glover
Just wanted to let you know that we enjoyed our few days stay on your site, even though we had a fair bit of rain. Everything was just as your web site explained, the wildlife and surroundings were much appreciated. Looking forward to coming back soon. Kevin and Sara. ( hope you got your washing machines up and running.)
Hi Louise and Steve,
Sorry we didnt get a chance to say goodbye to you, unfortunately, we had a problem at home and had to leave a day early On a happier note, we thought our stay with you was the best we have ever had on any site. We feel that the facilities you offer are first class, the shower block is always clean and & fresh smelling. The showers can be descibed as LUXURY, and so spacious, nice to have the space to change in comfort.The space on each pitch is wonderful, plenty of space to spread out. Nice not to feel like a battery chicken !
WELL DONE GUYS, YOU HAVE GOT IT SPOT ON !
Our only disappointment was that we never heard you sing Louise !!!!!!!!!!!!
Well maybe next time eh ?
We'll be back !
James and Rena
Hi Louise and family
We just wanted to say what a fantastic time we had over the Easter weekend when we had 4 nights staying with you at South Breeze. The weather was glorious and the site is all that we look for and can rarely find. The welcome was warm and friendly and the site clean, quiet, safe. In fact just perfect to escape the stresses of life & The 4 children just loved the space to roam around. We wish you well with all you future plans and will be back very soon we hope, to see what has changed

Hi, we stayed at your campsite from good friday-easter sunday evening! It was a lovely break and thankyou for letting my children visit your shetland ponies :)) very relaxing. Heidi, mark, lauren & jordan
Hi, just a note to say how much we enjoyed your site ,and the wild life surrounding it ie- the red deer & numerous birds ect yours Dave Malkin.
Hi Louise and Steve,
Nice to see you again recently. Really enjoyed our short break with you(again) especially as we were able to use our own car this time ! Facilities excellent, as before and thanks for the friendly reception, including the wave from Steve as he passed us on the road in !!! To anyone reading these reviews, we highly recommend the site as it is tranquil, with beautiful views and lovely owners. Roadford Lake, nearby, is a superb place to while away some time. We will return as soon as we can. Very best wishes
Freda & Colin from Cornwall
Hi Louise & Steve, Kirsty, Vicki & Family
We just wanted to say how much we enjoyed our 1st night of many on your campsite. It was so nice to come to a place where the wildlife is valued and respected. A perfect place for us to & and perfect for our young children, who are mad on bird watching. You definitely got it right, as we have said to you, with your ethos, and beliefs in the way a campsite should be run. It is lovely that you take such an interest in your & customers and we are sure that because of this, you will be very successful in your business. I just loved Mr Darcey & Heathcliffe the mini shetlands they are adorable!.
We will keep our caravan with you in storage and then we can come whenever we want!
See you soon, Shona Tim Grant, & Children
We would like to thank you for your kind hospitality during our 3 night stay at south breazle, we thoroughly enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and high quality services you provide there. we hope to be coming back to stay in the near future and will make use of your easy to book web site facility. bye for now

I came across the South Breazle website while looking for a place to spend the night on 1st March 2007, as I had business in Okehampton the next morning, and didn't fancy driving there and back from London in a day. The online booking is a definite bonus, and very simple to do, which is why I booked this site, and not some of the others. The directions in the confirmation email were perfect - and the site was well signposted and easy to find, even in the dark, despite being well off the beaten track. Each of the pitches was lit with a solar lamp, and all I had to do on arrival was hook up to the mains, and make myself comfortable for the night - who needs hotels when you have a VW camper!!
Next morning dawned frosty and bright, and what a view! The shower block and shop are well equipped, and the staff/owners friendly and helpful. Only a couple of other caravans had ventured out this early in the season, so I saw the site at probably its quietest, but I can't imagine it getting too noisy here even in August! Hard standing pitches are definitely a bonus, and if you are coming from Bratton Clovelly ignore your sat nav when it says you are there - it's another half mile down the road!
Hi just to say that our first camping holiday at the end of October was wonderful. You made us feel very welcome and that the high standards you have benefit many more campers. Hope to visit you again soon when you have your animals for the children to see. Sarah Ken Daisy Sian & Freya Miles
Hi not at all surprised you got your 4 stars, quite an achievement so early on but, well deserved for a well presented, quiet, relaxing, comfortable& site with all the mod cons. installing "wifi" is a stroke of genius, particularly for those of us house hunting or those needing to "stay in touch". Nobody else will understand my next comment, so you may have some explaining to do in the future but "what a lovely voice" See you soon kind regards and all the best Chris & Sue ESSEX)
Just a quick line to say thank you for such a warm welcome to your lovely new campsite and best wishes for the rest of the bank holiday and season. It was very kind of you to let us stay one more night and it was no problem moving to the next pitch. we will make every effort to return next year. Working in tourism management myself I can say with some experience that you have got your business set up just spot on, but I'm sure that by the end of the week you will be wondering what on earth posessed you to open up a campsite with all that hassle. Rest assured that you are giving a very good service, keep smiling and loads of coffee is all you need.
Cheers Alan, Fran, Ariane Joe Walker.
Just wanted to send an email to say how much we enjoyed our short stay at your campsite. We stayed just 2 nights but wished so much we could have stayed longer! I have to say that we were thoroughly impressed with the campsite and especially the toilet and shower facilities. Very well thought out! My husband said that the chemical disposal point was again very good. All in all, we had a lovely time and we thoroughly enjoyed the quietness of the site (we realise we came at the end of the peak season) and our children loved walking around by the hedges and enjoying the nature side of things....kept them quiet too!! If you ever have a Comments section on your website, we would be more than happy to say how pleased we were with the campsite. Also love your website and the fact that you can book online, check availability and book your own pitch. Wonderful! We will DEFINITELY be back next year. Well done and good luck!
Donna and Steve Kemsley
