I had such a great time at South Bay. We visited May 28th - June 3rd. We felt very welcome by all the staff especially the Stripeys who were there to entertain us and help us every single day. The trip was so worth it and I would definitely go again. This is the second John Fowler Park I have...

We came to the park after booking a caravan owned by a lovely couple by going online. After visiting Exmouth previously and discovering Brixham on a ferry tour, this seemed to fit our needs (as we often visit caravan parks). We stayed for a week (although we wish we'd stayed for way longer!). We definitely underestimated what we'd get at...

John Fowler Holiday Park in Brixham is the perfect location for young families. The size of the park is sufficient enough to provide family entertainment without attracting too much rowdiness. We were at the Park 21-28 May 2016 when the park was a little quieter. Despite the lower number of guests all of the team worked exceptionally hard to entertain...
