Our lovely Club Site on the south Devon coast.

The South Hams offers a wonderful mix of coast, moorland and rolling hills and a range of activities to match from walking and cycling to sailing and surfing. For history lovers there are delights such as Totnes Castle and The South Devon Railway, while a range of arts and food festivals and sailing regattas will keep culture-vultures happy.

Where better to base yourself to enjoy these delights than at our lovely Dartmouth Club campsite. Aptly named as the attractive harbour town is just a five minute drive away, the site offer campers stunning sea views over Start Bay. Spacious pitches, a large camping field, family shower room and a children’s play area are among the facilities on offer.

There are beaches aplenty - Blackpool Sands is within walking distance – Slapton Sands, Torcross, Beesand Beach and Hall Sands are a short drive away.

Also easily accessed are Totnes, Salcombe, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. At the latter cross the River Dart to the pretty village of Kingswear and hop on board the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway for a ride along the Torbay coast. While on this side of the river, Greenway is a magical place to explore. Once the holiday home of Agatha Christie it is now managed by the National Trust.

Although this is our 2nd visit to Dartmouth we wouldn't visit without the Grandchildren.

This review is for Dartmouth

Although this is our 2nd visit to Dartmouth we wouldn't visit without the Grandchildren. The facility block needs updating, showers run very very slow and most morning I had to queue to get one !!!!! Needs another block at the top of the site !!!! The site manager needed a smile on her face and some personality, Karen one of the assistants was great she was very helpful, cheery and always had a smile for you. It's a must to visit Dartmouth go fishing/crabbing or a boat trip, also Slapton/Blackpool sands are easy access, Woodlands Adventure Park a good day out.

This review is for Dartmouth

We've just come back from 13 nights in our caravan on this site. We all really enjoyed it. The site was very safe for our children (14 & 6) they made friends with others and there is a small playground for them to play on. There is also a larger park out of the site and turn right down the lane. The showers are very clean as is the site and the staff were always buzzing around somewhere if you needed them. The pitch size was adequate and we have a large awning and there's easy access to water points. The chip van opens on a Monday, Thursday and Saturday and there is also a laundry room. We took our bikes but sadly ours stayed put for the full 2 weeks. The leading to the site is narrow and fairly busy as are a lot of the roads. You can walk into Dartmouth it's about 2 and halfish miles and all down hill then get the 93 bus back which is regular through the day. If you have a dog you are very limited which beach you can go on. Blackpool sands is a short drive or bus ride away which is a private beach, you pay to park or get in but it is sand and very clean (no dogs) with toilets and a cafe. We went onto Slapton beach which is further on and is pebble and dogs are allowed. We did a lot of touring round and it's a lot easier using the ferrys instead of driving round but it does cost �8.40 return a day so worth seeing if there is a weekly pass. Brixham is a lovely place as is Torquay. Plymouth Marina is nice but didn't rate the city much. Paignton has a great playground on the front and has a street of tacky mooching gift shops, slotties and cafes. A lot of places you pay for parking on the streets aswell as car parks but you can pay by phone, worth a thought if you're going to use them a lot. Crab fishing is a must for the kids. The water park in Paignton is ok but not very big. Woodlands is a good day out too. Try and get to see the firework championships in Plymouth if you're there in Aug they are amazing.

Entrance could do with being more prominent. On first approach I mixed turning as tom tom said 2nd right which was the housing estate. As first time tower I struggled to find somewhere to turn round.

Just back from a group camping trip (5 tents + 1 Caravan).

This review is for Dartmouth

Just back from a group camping trip (5 tents + 1 Caravan). Staff are friendly and pitches are mostly flat and of a good size. We were in the 2nd field so it was a bit of a walk to the toilet/shower block, but they were always clean and considering it was mid August, I never had to wait for a shower. My only grumble is the toilet blocks are closed for 1.5 hours during the middle of the day, with only 1 disabled toilet available during that time. I can't see why it takes 1.5 hrs - and suggest they clean half the toilets first to allow access, or at the very least do the men's and women's at different times to ease the queues for the one remaining toilet. The site is in a great position for visiting Dartmouth and surrounding areas and would definitely re-visit.
