Very nice nice caravan, well kept in a nice location near the entrance to the park.. Main double bedroom had plenty of space and storage along with a en suite toilet and sink in there and tv, kids stayed in double single bed room which tbh i cant comment on i never went in it yet they liked it, Actual main living area was very good a decent sized for a caravan tv and dvd player along with wifi which was a nice addition for a caravan :) Plenty of seating, nice kitchen which had usual kettle, cooker, microwave and a full sized fridge freezer not the under counter types with mini freezer section !Upon our arrival there was a selection of cleaning products left for Covid purposes they actual caravan was clean ! We took our German shepherd along with us as the place is dog friendly which was nice to be able to take her with us :) Owner Victoria was very helpful and friendly.. Recommended :)
Thank you for your review, I am always delighted to receive reviews from my guests and I am pleased to see you have called it a “very nice caravan.” To know that your two teenagers were happy with their twin room is very reassuring too! All in all it sounds like you enjoyed your holiday and had enough space to accommodate yourselves, older children & also a German Shepherd dog. This is one of the reasons we decided to have a caravan - we wanted somewhere with enough space that was safe for our own two dogs Thank you again for your review & I hope to hear from you again soon, Victoria & Jim

Victoria was helpful and prompt from the moment we made an enquiry. The caravan is homely, comfortable and has everything you need for a peaceful and relaxing break. There is no disturbance from the clubhouse and the area is quiet. I will definitely be back and would highly recommend.
Thank you for your kind words of praise regarding the caravan & the handling of your booking- we feel customer service is so important: from choosing a holiday home to stay in, then booking up, the actual holiday itself and finally the departure as the holiday draws to its end. We want our guests to seek & find information, reassurance & trust from us during every part of their holiday. We’re glad you felt our home was comforting and homely, just how we hope our guests will feel when staying in Phoebe’s Place. We are proud to hear that not only would you like to stay with us again, you would highly recommend us to others! Thank you so much, Victoria & Jim

A family of four with two children under 4 years old. We stayed for just under a week. The caravan itself is absolutely beautiful, modern and spotlessly clean with everything you could possibly need. The decking area is a bonus where you can sit and relax in the sunshine, even better for us, there is a gate to stop the young children escaping ???????? Victoria was absolutely brilliant from start to finish; kept in touch and made everything so easy throughout the booking process. We can’t thank you enough and cannot wait to return!
Thank you Ashleigh, you’ve only just messaged me to say you’ve left Phoebe’s Place & you’ve already reviewed the caravan and your holiday for me! I was pleased to know that the decking gate was useful in giving you both peace of mind in keeping your small boys safe. I firmly believe that good communication is the key to a happy holiday & I want every guest to feel that I am always at the end of a phone & will always reply to all texts or emails I receive, as soon as I possibly can. Whenever you’re ready to plan your next holiday in Devon, please let me know, you’ll always be welcome to stay in Phoebe’s Place again, Victoria & Jim

What a wonderful couple of days we spent here as a short stop on our way home. The caravan was beautiful, clean, spacious and with all the equipment needed for our group of 6.....grandparents, parents, kids and dogs. The site was very well maintained and the kids loved the pool. The nearby coves were a particular favorite for my son....... Rock pooling, swimming and rock jumping ????. Very close to Goodrington Sands where we spent time at the water park and the dogs enjoyed the sea swimming. May well be back as so much we couldn't do in the short time we spent there. Thanks Vicki for being a very considerate and informative host......particularly during this strange time of covid....... Spotless ????
Thank you for taking the time to write your review of Phoebe’s Place & the local area; our first since we re-opened in July 2020 following the Covid Lockdown & only a few hours after departure this morning too! It is reassuring to know that the new measures we have put in place to ensure we achieved Covid Secure Certification has been welcomed by our guests and you are so right, there is so much to see and do for all ages, it’s no wonder return to Torbay over and over again. Thank you for being our guests and we look forward to seeing you again soon, Victoria & Jim

We are just home from a wonderful holiday in Phoebe's Place. From the first enquiry Victoria was so helpful, always responding immediately to any emails and this continued until we were back home safe. Victoria gives you all the help and information you need and is always there to help you. Now, the caravan...... Without doubt this was the cleanest caravan we have ever stayed in, absolutely spotless. There is everything you need and more in this caravan, Victoria has thought of everything. The layout is excellent very spacious, plenty of seating, and great to have the dining table to hand. The master bedroom was fabulous, large with loads of storage and a ensuite. Lovely decking area to sit out with seating there too. The caravan is situated in a quite area, near to the reception /shop/ pub, but not too near. The area is lovely, near to Brixham, Paignton & Torquay. Superb coves that you can walk to from the site, we throughly enjoyed exploring all these. You can get onto the costal path too from the site so wonderful if you have your dog like us, many lovely areas to see. Most importantly at this present time, this caravan was Covid safe, all safety measures were in place by Victoria, she was on top of everything, cleaning, procedures, track & trace, everything, you will have nothing to worry about staying here. There was new hand sanitizer, anti bacteria wipes & spray all left there for us, brand new. Your doing a superb job Victoria, keep it up, we wouldn't hesitate staying with you again. Thank you.
Hi Claire, Thank you so much for your very detailed review. We are thrilled to have been thought of in such high regard! As a family of six, we had many caravan holidays over the years & had not received much in the way of communication from any of them. This left me quite anxious about our holiday each time & any queries we had were often met with minimal replies. What were the facilities like? What could we expect when we reached the caravan itself, etc & although we never dreamed we would one day have our own holiday home, once we did, I wanted to try & reassure my guests about the holiday they had booked & be as communicative as possible. So I am delighted that you felt you were able to ask me questions about our holiday home in advance of your arrival, about the holiday park facilities, or even with regards to the local dog friendly beaches and coves. Such a fabulous review makes everything we do to enable our guests to enjoy their holiday.,so worthwhile, thank you. We are so pleased you found our caravan to be, “The cleanest caravan we have ever stayed in, absolutely spotless“ we are so fortunate to have our housekeeper - she is a trusted & valued, integral part of our holiday home- we couldn’t ask any more of her & will be sure to pass on your praises to her. It has been a pleasure to have you holiday in home by the sea & I hope that you will think of us when you plan your next trip to Torbay, Victoria & Jim

Amazing stay at Phoebe’s Place. Victoria was fantastically helpful all the way thru booking to check out. What a base to explore the English Riviera. So clean and spacious with every home comfort possible. Our dog loved it too. Great decking area for him to patrol. My wife & I would highly recommend it. Many thanks to Victoria and Jim.
A huge thank you to you & your wife for your wonderful review of Phoebe’s Place- even more so because you have only just messaged me to say you’re home, thank you for such a speedy review it’s so appreciated! We really are well situated at Waterside Holiday Park, nicely nestled between Torquay, Goodrington Sands, Broadsands beach & Brixham. We hope to have you come & stay again soon & are thrilled that our caravan & the large veranda suited your dog too; it is a feature we’re proud of because dogs, including our own can enjoy being outside of the caravan, whilst safely enclosed within the gated veranda. Please come back soon. Many thanks, Victoria & Jim xx

Thank you to Victoria who gave us an amazing amount of information prior to and during our stay. The caravan is beautiful and in such a fantastic location. It has everything you need and the en suite toilet and basin are an added bonus. We were never cold as there is central heating and a heater system. I honestly can't praise enough, we had such a wonderful time. Thank you again can't wait to go back!!
Thank you to you both for being our guests and taking the time to write a wonderful review of our caravan, even with the challenges of a water cut for several hours one day & stormy weather that lasted your whole stay! I’m glad you found the info I sent to you was helpful to making the most of your holiday & the central heating kept you cozy and warm even in late October/early November- we are now planning our own mini-break to enjoy a winter weekend in our caravan, ourselves! Please don’t be strangers- come back and stay again soon, Victoria & Jim

We had the most enjoyable stay at Victoria's caravan. She was so helpful with things to do and places to go and although we went on a wet weekend we found lots of things to keep us occupied. The caravan was clean and fully equipped so we wanted for nothing. There are so many lovely places to visit so close to where we were based, the ideal location for an extremely fun weekend! Thanks Victoria!!
Thank you so much for your review, each one really does mean so much to Jim & I! We are proud that our comments say how clean the caravan is time and time again- this is a must for us & we are lucky to have a brilliant cleaner as part of our team. Thank you also for mentioning our customer service- we really feel this is so important for every guest. We are always willing to research an activity, place of interest, bus or train timetable for a guest as we want our guests to have the best time that they can, even if there’s wet weather! Please think of us when you’re planning your next holiday in Paignton- we’d love to have you stay in Phoebe’s Place again! x

We have just spent a fantastic weekend at Phoebe’s Place. Victoria has been the ultimate host with excellent communication from our first enquiry to the completion of our holiday. She is very prompt with replies to any questions and provides detailed information about the caravan and surrounding area. The caravan itself is very spacious and comfortable. Credit to Victoria’s cleaner who made sure it was spotless and immaculately presented upon our arrival. I must also mention how fantastic the shower is! Provision is made for all ages with a selection of dvds, books and children’s board games. Must admit to having a few games of snakes and ladders and minibeast bingo! Also, there are dog bowls should you require them. The caravan is situated close enough to the park’s amenities but not too close to be disturbed by them. The wonderful views across the bay are very accessible and it is close enough to the main road if you want to venture further afield. We highly recommend Phoebe’s Place and intend booking again in the near future. Thank you Victoria xx
Wow!, Thank you so much for your wonderful review- you have described Phoebe’s Place so well, we’ve just booked a few days off of work to go & stay there again ourselves! Each review received makes us so proud -we strive to make each guest’s stay as enjoyable as possible, whether it’s a weekend, mid-week mini-break, or a two week summer holiday. Our goal is to make every guest feel welcome & valued, with each comment noted & worked upon , in order to improve year on year. We will be sharing your praise of our marvellous cleaner with her, for she is the star without whom we are sure we wouldn’t know what to do! Thank you again, we look forward to hearing from you again very soon xx

Me and my Husband had a lovely second honeymoon after renewing our vows on Saturday. The caravan is excellent, with cosy decoration. The verandah was lovely to sit with a glass of wine. Victoria was very helpful and prompt with sorting out the booking and informed us of everything we needed to know. Only fault was no egg cups, but we have left one in the caravan for next time we visit. Haha. Which, no doubt, we will.
Good evening to you both. We are delighted to receive such high ratings from you, especially since you only checked out this morning! We’re proud that you chose our caravan to spend your second honeymoon in & the good weather must have been the icing on the top. Thank you for pointing out that we hadn’t thought of providing egg cups- I have already got some on order as we speak, proving that feedback is vital for improving our holiday experience for our guests, as we are committed to making each holiday the best it can be, every time. Thank you once again & we look forward to you booking up for next year. Kind regards, Victoria & Jim Davey

My partner and I have just returned from a lovely long weekend at Victoria's caravan with our two dogs. The caravan was spotless and everything is supplied for your comfort. The location of Victoria's caravan is perfect, down a quiet cul-de-sac but within a few minutes walk to amenities. Victoria's correspondence is informative, personal and immediate. She goes above and beyond to ensure your stay is enjoyable. Her list of dog friendly beaches and places of interest meant we could plan our stay before leaving home. I would highly recommend Victoria's caravan for any age group. We hope to visit again xx
Thank you so much for such warm words and kind praise, you cannot imagine how delighted we are to receive your recommendations, especially from fellow doggie enthusiasts too! It can be difficult to balance providing enough information to enhance a guest’s stay, without being intrusive or bombarding with information. Especially hard when all we want to do is talk about how utterly marvellous we think the English Riviera is! To a lovely couple and their two retrievers, please come back & stay with us again, soon xx

Victoria has been fantastic through the whole process of booking and help with local area information. We did a lot of things while staying here. We are a family of 4 with pre-teens and We also took our 2 dogs, and plenty of great walks and views are amazing. The caravan was lovely and clean with all cooking facilities you’d need should you wish too! Eating out was far nicer so we didn’t have to do the washing up!! We ate once on the campsite which was nice for easy option, also went to the clubhouse for evening entertainment and all staff are fantastic and accommodating. It’s our first time in a static caravan and it certainly won’t be our last...I recommend booking with victoria, Paignton, Torquay and brixham have all been visited and splashdown water park is a must if you have kids! Thanks again victoria! Hope to book next year!
THANK YOU, thank you, thank you to my wonderful guests- you have been a joy and a privilege to have book your holiday with us! We’re overjoyed to know that we have hosted your first caravan holiday & hope you will join us again next year. Thank you for sharing a photo of you all clearly enjoying your holiday in Torbay; it looks as though you all have been smitten by the English Riviera, as all who visit, seem to be!
