Our Slapton Sands Club campsite has all the ingredients for the perfect family beach holiday. Located on the stunning South Devon Heritage Coast, our Slapton Sands campsite commands a quiet, rural setting. Lined by trees and flanked by rolling countryside, this is the place to sit back and enjoy the views - some pitches enjoy fabulous views over the bay.

The campsite is level and well set out with some hardstandings and plenty of grass pitches. There is a children’s play area, a parent and child room, washing up facilities and a short dog walk and the small on-site shop provides the basics.

Off-site there are plenty of coastal walks to enjoy including to Beesands and Hallsands. Slapton beach is a few minutes’ walk from the campsite. The shingle beach and clean, calm sea are ideal for families (dogs are welcome too) and water sport enthusiasts can enjoy surfing, windsurfing and canoeing.

The freshwater lagoon Slapton Ley is separated from the sea by Slapton beach and is set within a National Nature Reserve. The area is teeming with bird and wildlife. There are many walks and trails around the reserve.

To the north of Slapton Sands, the Blue Flag Award-winning Blackpool Sands awaits. Backed byevergreens and scented pines, this stretch of golden sands has a real mediterranean feel.

A bus stop a quarter of a mile from the campsite is on routes to Plymouth, Kingsbridge and Dartmouth. The latter is a wonderful medieval town with a lovely harbour, perfect for crabbing, and a castle.

Ready Camp is available at this campsite. (Please note that, although we welcome dogs on this site, in the interest of all guests we do not permit pets to stay within the Ready Camp tents).

This was our first visit to a club site and we were totally blown away.

This review is for Slapton Sands

This was our first visit to a club site and we were totally blown away. The staff on arrival were so welcoming and allowed us to view a number of pitches before we chose where we wanted to be. The pitch was flat and grassy and right by the play area. The site itself is incredibly well kept and the facilities we gave stars!! The children were safe to cycle around on their bikes and made some lovely friends. A 15 minute stroll downhill to a beautiful expanse of beach and on the Saturday night a fish and chip van turned up which was great. Would def recommend and def return xx

This review is for Slapton Sands

First of all, I must say that towing to this site, even following the recommended route, is not for the faint of heart. There are at least half a dozen points that are only wide enough for one vehicle with oncoming lorries and double decker buses. The roads are small around this site and you can expect it to take 30 minutes to get just 5 or so miles away - without towing a unit! The site itself has some nice views of the sea, but the pitches are fairly packed in on a grid basis - not every pitch is near the ring road running round the site. It can get very windy on the site - we had several days in a row of strong wind. The facilities are clean, but not that modern and I would say only just cope when the site is busy. The gents has three showers and three toilets. Queues for the showers were a daily occurrence during the mornings. The children's playground only has a slide, a couple of swings and a small climbing frame for older children. The staff were fairly friendly and very busy - they keep everything in order and clean. The nearest supermarkets are at least a 20 minute drive away due to the poor roads. The nearby beaches are pebble or fine stones. I would probably not stay here again due to the tricky towing and roads and the windy nature of the site. It was also a bit cramped for me. My neighbours would often park their car in front of my unit's front door for example.

Camped with four adults and seven children plus three dogs and we had awwonderful time. The amenities are good and spotless thanks to the friendly and hard working staff who were constantly cleaning, mowing etc. Easily within reach of supermarkets, places to eat and even a good theme park. We are hoping to go again soon. Many thanks.

Site is well kept and staff friendly and helpful.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Site is well kept and staff friendly and helpful. Situated in a good location to access Dartmouth and Salcombe, both lovely places to visit. Only downside is when site is full three showers in mens and ladies is not enough and queues likely. Nice pubs close to site and dog friendly beach a 5 minute walk away.
