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 review is for Slapton Sands

We have visited the site for several years and always found it to be a well managed and friendly site. The HSMs, Peter and Yvonne were as usual extremely friendly and helpful. The site is well kept, but would benefit from some facilities being updated, in particular the showers. Access to WiFi seems to be an ongoing issue. If this service is advertised, then it should be available. I do feel that the Club should consider revising rules surrounding dogs. The number of dogs on site seems to be increasing yearly, and non-dog owners marginalised in terms of their opinions. Whilst most dog owners are responsible and use the dog walk, it seems to have become acceptable within the club to allow dogs to foul on the site so long as it is cleaned up. It is not. I do not wish to eat my evening meal whilst a dog uses the area around my tent as a toilet.

We chose the site due to its location, which is beautiful, and we joined the club for this holiday. We have been to many campsites around the country and were very surprised by the out dated facilities at this site. Having not camped at a club site before, we were very disappointed. Whilst there we did have some good days out: bantham beach and Dartmouth were lovely. Also the queens arms in the village had good food, but not very welcoming to children. Felt like they were doing us a favour letting them in. I think the camping and caravan club need to visit sites with children, to see how sites can be improved for families. Not an easy holiday :(
