I have included some of the holiday reviews from other websites below. Please note that the reviews are mixed, however generally speaking the complaints are coming from those visitors who stayed in the Bronze level accommodation. I want to keep this holiday park on the website as it is a lovely park in a super location offering excellent value for money for families wanting to holiday in Devon. However I would suggest that if you were coming here, stick to the Gold and Silver standard! (Hopefully they are busy pulling down the Bronze level chalets as we speak!)

Reviews from the Park Holidays website

Loved the location, which was brilliant for walking into Brixham or out onto the South West Coastal Path. Fantastic views from the bottom end of the site. We don't really use many of the onsite facilities so I can't comment on these; however I have always found the staff to be very helpful and pleasant. I have stayed in a range of accommodation at Landscove: the gold+ caravan we stayed in this time was fantastic and I have previously good experiences of gold and silver accommodation which offer good value for money. Stay well away from the bronze accommodation which is terrible. Diana, Rating 4.5 out of 5, Oct 2015
Good time away staff loverly nice place to stay if we come back wouldn't go In anything under silverpluss due to having kids and don't think under silverpluss is suitable to have kids in but overall a brilliant holiday (anything over silverpluss is really nice n suitable for kids). Callie, Rating 4 out of 5, Oct 2015
Had a fantastic time, the chalets are a little bit dated, but good value for money. would definitely return, as we had a fantastic experience in a beautiful place. Especially good for adults wanting to walk the coastal path. Barbara, Rating 4 out of 5, Oct 2015
Great location. Stunning views. Peaceful and relaxing. Chalet could do with being updated. Pools looked inviting . On site bar and shop good. Didn't join in the evening entertainment. Would recommend. Elizabeth, Rating 4 out of 5, Sept 2015
I've stayed at Landscove a few times and the location in relation to the coastal path and Brixham is excellent. I've also always found the staff to be very helpful. In the past I've stayed in platinum, gold and silver accommodation. the only accommodation available this time was a bronze cottage. The platinum and gold accommodation is very good and offers good value for money; the silver is good enough. We were absolutely appalled by the bronze cottage accommodation: abundant mould on the bedroom walls and a strong smell of damp throughout, the kitchen was beyond dated and the rust covered cooker looked plain unsafe - we didn't try it - and the bathroom was not a great deal better. Clearly the cleaning had been done in a rush as a previous resident had left a number of items in one of the bedrooms and these had not been removed, and we had also not been provided with any bedlinen. If we had been staying for more than two nights or intended to prepare any food there at all we would absolutely have insisted on alternative accommodation. I would recommend Landscove as long as you steer well clear of the bronze accommodation, and ideally stick to the gold and platinum. Diana, 2.5 out of 5, Aug 2015
Apparently these chalets are being knocked down in winter which is a good thing!!! Site OK but been to better.. Nice location would recommend only staying in gold/silver! Fantastic food though. Linda, Rating 2 out of 5, Aug 2015
The place needs a bit tired but the chalet we had was clean and comfortable. Did not use the restaurant or takeaway. Good location for travelling to various locations. we will book again for next year. Darren, Rating 4 out of 5, Aug 2015
This has been our 10th year at Landscove. We only ever book a silver plus chalet. I wouldn't stay in anything else and I'm not a fan of caravans. Yes, the chalets are old and need refurbishment and our mattress is always hard. But every year we go back because it is a beautiful part of the country. We always have a fantastic holiday. The outdoor pool was lovely and warm this year. I think the warmest it has ever been, so there was no need to swim indoors. Also having an adult only swim at 9am was great. I burnt some calories which meant I could indulge in delicious Devon ice cream. The restaurant food is fine although I wouldn't eat there every night. There's only so many night's you can have chips, but it's good value. The staff work hard. The reception is very helpful and remembers us each year. The quasar and outdoor movie night was an excellent idea this year. I can't comment on the kids club as our kids have never attended - in 10 years. We also didn't use the entertainment this year - too busy spending our evenings on Breakwater beach. As always we had a fantastic holiday and I'm sure we'll be back again next year. One thing I'd like to mention to management - as my 7 year old daughter pointed out - if the site keeps growing the pools will become too small. Thank you. Gillian, Rating 3.5 out of 5, Aug 2015
We had a lovely stay here coastal setting beautiful and walking to brixham via the path was lovely.wouldn't be possible with a buggy though but older children it's great, landscove is a small site but served it's purpose the outside pool is a bonus kids loved it. Torbay beautiful we all had a great week and would definitely return. Karen, Rating 4.5 out of 5, Aug 2015
Situated on Berry Head you can see 800 miles of horizon. The small cottage bronze plus we stayed in was nice . The facilities are fine and the staff had us laughing and joining in fun and games. Its a more quieter holiday camp than most we have been to which gives the kids and adults more chance to win things in the fun shows. My kids and my wife didnt want to leave. Really enjoyable and we will be visiting landscove again. Gary, Rating 5 out of 5, Jul 2015
We have just returned from a 5 night stay in a silver 2 bed bungalow at landscove we have thoroughly enjoyed our stay there, the staff are lovely and the entertainers are fab especially Alyssa and louise who work very hard at keeping the children entertained and loving every minute of their job , there are some beautiful walks with lovely views, we are planning to return later this year. the shop is well stocked and reasonably priced also the restaurant had a good selection of meals. such a beautiful camp
This was our first time staying here and it was abstemiously brilliant. The onsite pools were fantastic, the restaurant was very satisfying and the chalet was spotless and very comfortable. Hope to return next year.
Just returned from a week at landscove and wanted to share our views. Caravan was spotlessly clean, well equipped and spacious. Swimming pools were well maintained with plenty of seating. Site well positioned for cliff walks and walking into town. Brixham is lovely town with excellent seafood restaurants and shops. Will def be returning :)
