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. Please note that currently, the play area is partially out of action.

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.

This site is very handy for the delights of South Devon, secluded and yet there is a garage & shop + plus a friendly pub doing good food, within yards. It is a very dog friendly area throughout, and our little terror, Jodie says 'don't forget to say how much Pippa, Tilly and I love Bigbury sands for lots of fabulous games.'

This review is for California Cross

Our van is very small so we had no trouble getting to the site but the last few miles were pretty narrow, with single track in places, so large vans might find it tricky when meeting oncoming traffic. The site was lovely - good views, and maintained to a high standard. Having a good pub and a shop within a few yards was the icing on the cake. It was within easy reach of the many attractions of S Devon too, but away from traffic and noise. Very friendly helpful site managers.
