    Top site for beaches

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 and family shower room 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.

If you'd like to go glamping then Dartmouth Ready Camp is the perfect choice. (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).

Although very close to bus stop, the bus didn't stop.

This review is for Dartmouth

Although very close to bus stop, the bus didn't stop. It was already 25 minutes late and many of the people in the queue were running in the Dartmouth Road Race as part of the Regatta. This created unnecessary tension and as a result, 2 of my group then had to ferry the runners into the town which isn't the easiest of things to do with the amount of traffic and visitors. Perhaps the local council could arrange for extra local buses for the Regatta weekend. The Park and ride is too far away from Deer Park Camping site for it to of any help to people staying there.

We have been member for over 5 years and visited several sites.

This review is for Dartmouth

We have been member for over 5 years and visited several sites. We will be cancelling our membership and never visit again. The warden here in Dartmouth is so rude. We came here for my partners birthday within an hour we were told off for having a windbreak. When we questioned this he asked us to leave the site. He told us we only had the gravel. Not the grass. We could sit on the grass but it wasn't part of our pitch. This is the only site we have been told this. Please do to visit. The pitches are small anyway. There are not enough showers. Customer service means zero. I've have never experienced such a rude man.

The site was excellent, easy to get to, and close to other places via bus route at site gates.

This review is for Dartmouth

The site was excellent, easy to get to, and close to other places via bus route at site gates. well stocked shop. Staff very friendly. Only grumble, and I know rules are rules, but the family next to us were playing a simple game of catch, with a tennis ball, hurting nobody. One of the wardens trailed up from reception to ask them to stop playing. Meanwhile, lives were at risk by the big group of youngsters tearing about on bikes, who were left to it, with no attempt to stop them. 5mph for cars, unrestricted for bikes! Apart from that, grand!

This review is for Dartmouth

As a family we felt we had a good pitch with views of the sea, the on site facilities were fairly modern and the location ideal, most of the staff were happy, pleasant and helpful. We were not impressed with the first view of the site, as you turn in off the main road you are greeted with a very poorly maintained site road, lots of green waste bins which could be put in a more suitable place or fenced around and a derelict pub, it actually resembled out local household waste disposal site. Beyond that the site is really quite attractive. When we arrived we were told to pitch our tent no nearer than 6 meters to the next tent, as the week went on more campers turned up and that 6 meters quickly turned to 4 meters or less in some places, so much for rules! We did have a good holiday and Dartmouth is a lovely place to visit though parking is a definite NO so best to use the park and ride. My biggest disappointment came when we returned from a day out and I was bursting for the toilet, I parked the car slightly out of the car park to get to the toilet quicker and to my astonishment was followed into the toilet by one of the older grumpier members of staff who then proceeded to tell me about the parking protocol of the site is I stood at the urinal, this was totally unappropriated and quite frankly made me fell like insulted and victimised rather than a paying customer, my family and other campers were shocked when I told them what had happened. Overall we would return again as the good points do outweigh the bad.
