Near the South Devon Heritage Coast - sandy beaches and activity or peace and tranquility. The choice is yours.

You’ll find our California Cross Club campsite in South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Off the beaten track and surrounded by rolling countryside, the campsite is nestled between the sandy beaches of South Devon’s Heritage coast and the dramatic landscape of the Dartmoor National Park.

Peace and tranquillity is what you’ll find here, along with a mix of level and sloping pitches and a good range of on-site facilities. The California Inn and a shop, both next door to the campsite serve and sell locally produced food.

Nearby Modbury and Ivybridge offer a range of shops and places to eat. The latter will also appeal to walkers. The Two Moors Way starts here, traversing the National Park on its way to Lynmouth on the north Devon coast. Heading south the Erme-Plym Way links Ivybridge to Wembury. The beach here is known for its surfing and rock pooling.

Bigbury on Sea boasts the biggest sandy beach in south Devon. Catch the sea tractor from here to pretty Burgh Island. For windsurfing, canoeing and coastal walks go to nearby Wonwell beach. Mothecombe and Coastguards beaches are also not to be missed.

Worth Noting

Some pitches are sloping and chocks may be needed.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

The California Inn and a shop, both next to the campsite, serve and sell local produce. A farm shop four miles away has local organic meat and vegetables, a monthly Farmer's Market visits Totnes, Dartmouth, Ivybridge and Kingsbridge.

We had a wonderful half-term holiday at the site which was clean, quiet and friendly.

This review is for California Cross

We had a wonderful half-term holiday at the site which was clean, quiet and friendly. Jan and Jo kept the place spick n span and did everything they could to ensure all guests had no problems. Showers, washrooms and toilets always clean and no queueing! I agree with a previous comment that duckboards or longer shower curtains would help keep the floor dry but adequate wall hooks mean all clothes and wash gear can stay off the floor anyway. From the site we were able to visit all the places on our wish list (including Babbacombe model village and Bygones, Buckfastleigh, Dartmouth, House of Marbles in Bovey Tracey and the tractor ferry to Burgh Island), and we now have a new list of other places to visit for next time.

This review is for California Cross

A very quiet, peaceful and beautiful site, the wardons Jo and Jan were extremely helpful and as I am new to caravaning their patience and guidance was invaluable to me. Nothing was too much trouble. Showers and toilets were clean and well stocked, the fresh flowers in the ladies was a lovely touch. The journey from the A38 to the site was a little nerve racking but after experiencing the other narrow roads in the area it wasn't,t that bad at all!! Site Wi Fi was great, just a shame that only one person in the party could use the purchased code at a time. Would recommend this site to anybody, but if it,s peace you want this is the site for you. Look forward to returning later in the summer.
