There's something for the whole family at Beverley Park, with its excellent facilities that include two large swimming pools and several children's play areas. There are two distinctly different developments here - the lively Beverley Park and the more secluded Meadowside.
As well as the indoor and outdoor heated pools, Beverley Park also has a sauna, steam room, gym and therapy room. The Starlight Cabaret Bar provides great evening entertainment and there's a restaurant, café, takeaway, shop and off-licence. Crazy golf and tennis are also on offer.
There's a choice of lodges or caravans - we really like the magnificent Heron Lodge. Spacious enough for six, it has a Wii games console, iPod docking station and WiFi access, as well as a decking area with private hot tub and patio furniture.
Goodrington Sands at Paignton is less than a mile away; with ample parking, it's a lovely beach and excellent for swimming. Or you could head to Torquay for a visit to Bygones, where you can see more than 20 life-sized Victorian shops and a working model railway.

Platinum Gold 6 Caravan
Brand new for 2017. The ultimate in luxury 12ft-wide caravan, boasting stylish state-of-the-art-features. One double with ensuite WC and two twin, all with TV. DVD. Beds made up for your arrival. Deluxe towels. Centrally heated. Coffee machine and fridge/freezer. Decking with garden furniture and outdoor hot tub.
Van was clean and tidy. All the vans were positioned so you didn't feel overlooked or in rows as so many parks.
Carvan needs some repair work eg white duck tape on the door, little hole on the wall, pull out bed and mattress full of rust spring needs replacing, heating in master bedroom only had little heat had to sleep in with are little one.

The caravan was lovely and luxurious. It was brand new for 2017 and didn't look as if it had been used much. It was spotlessly clean inside and outside. The grass and paths around it were well maintained. There was a hot tub situated on the decking and people came around every day to maintain it. There was also a gate on the decking which would make it very safe for young children- as long as the hot tub cover was on! The master bedroom with the en suite toilet was very spacious and it was a real bonus having two toilets among four adults.
The other two bedrooms were very cramped and while they may have been fine for children, they really weren't suitable for two adults to share. As a result of this, the pull out bed in the lounge area had to be put into use. The lounge area was huge and perhaps space could have been taken from here and the master bedroom to make the other bedrooms bigger or the smallest bedroom could have been a one bed room. Also the door to the smallest bedroom didn't close properly.
There is nowhere to hang wet jackets. There is a big cupboard in the hall where the boiler is stored and it would have been very useful if there had been hooks to hang up jackets here.
With a few adaptations this caravan would be perfect. However it is great in so many other ways and I would certainly book it again.
Lovely modern caravan. Smaller than we've had on other sites in the past. DVD player was missing on arrival but quickly sorted.
Where there is an option of an upgrade I think this should be offered to customers- caravans with hot tubs by our site going empty as the park was quiet!
Spacious living area, all mod cons, even central heating for those cold mornings! The 2nd twin room was very small - would be best suited to young children and not teenagers.

Great holiday. Good entertainment lovely,location
We simply loved our holiday and we're very impressed with the site.
Nice clean site with very friendly staff apart from the counter staff in the upstairs eatery who couldn't even take an order for two burgers correctly. She stated that I only ordered one!!
Beverley Park is lovely with lots of greenery around and most of the facilities are very near to the entrance. It is very well maintained and is mainly flat although there are slopes where the independent campers are situated. There are beautiful views of the sea from this area.
The pool area is very good although it could have more activities for children. The play park is very well equipped for children of all ages.
My granddaughter was very disappointed that the soft play was not open every day but given that it was early in the season and that there were some warm days while we were there, that was perhaps understandable.
All the staff we came into contact with -reception, maintenance, bar, restaurant and shop- were very friendly and really helpful. They actually looked as if they enjoyed working there.
Special mention must go to the entertainment team. Their shows were wonderful and they all took time before and after the shows to mix with the campers. They would also make a point of speaking to you if you met them outwith the entertainment complex and that was very much appreciated. Thanks also to the ones who took the children's club in the mornings. It must be very difficult to plan when you only have one child in attendance. However my granddaughter enjoyed the attention and the activities. So thank you very much to Darryl and the others for making our holiday so special. You are doing a great job!
The park is up a very steep hill and there are bus stops nearby but I would say a car is a necessity to get around the area. I didn't realise Paignton was so hilly!
The sister park is very close by but is across a busy main road and is very steep. Some of the entertainment took place here also.
This was the first time we had tried a caravan holiday with entertainment provided. We have been on caravan holidays before in France and Spain but not ones like this. We would definitely return and would certainly recommend Beverley Park to our friends and relations.
There was only one negative on our whole holiday and that was a midweek cabaret act. We know that others enjoyed him but we thought that his act belonged in the seventies. We left early. The onsite team were so much better!
Best location, games area could do with more machines and play area be a little bigger but it was brilliant holiday loads to do off site
Excellent location, friendly and helpful staff, plenty of entertainment on site, fantastic for kids
We had a fabulous holiday! We went with two other families and had a great time! The weather helped and the outdoor pool was open and this was where we spent a large amount of our time. The accommodation was good - lovely and clean - staff very helpful. The children loved the family bingo in the evening.
We would stay here again, had a great time. Platinum caravan was excellent
We had a fantastic stay at Beverley Park! We will definitely be going back!
A fabulous place to stay with a great team of staff and excellent entertainment. One negative was the main entertainment room was booked for a private event on the friday so the only place to go was over the road to Beverly bay but my parents have limited mobility and couldn't make it there so they had to stay in I think we should have been pre warned about this.
We have just had the most lovely week at Beverley Park.
Fantastic location for visiting various beaches, steam train into Dartmouth or lazy days at the park.
On site the children loved using both pools, the park and softplay and the children's entertainment in the evening.
The caravan was immaculate and although some areas around the site were a little tired they were always clean.
Thank you for a lovely break!
