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, family shower room and a children’s play area 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.

This review is for Dartmouth

We stayed for 10 nights with two of our granddaughters aged 7 and 9. This site is suitable for all ages. It is in a tourist area so there is plenty to do for all ages. We found the site and staff very friendly. The shower block was always extremely clean especially the loos. We often find chunks of loo appear all over the floor during the school holidays but not at Dartmouth. Well done to the staff for their efforts. There were plenty of loos and hand basins but perhaps a few more shower cubicles are needed in the ladies loo. I had to queue most mornings whilst my husband never had to wait. Difference of the sexes I suppose! The children's playground was a very popular area. The shop stocks the basics but I never did come to grips with the opening hours. The site is lovely and quiet and very well maintained. We would go back to stay at this diet in the future. There are Sainsbury's and Lidl supermarkets very close by. Also Park and Ride into Dartmouth which is always very busy. Stoke Fleming is a very pretty village. We enjoyed the character of a The Green Dragon pub. There is a restaurant , The Brill Place which does takeaways and there is a visiting fish and chip van several tines a week. However if you want really yummy fish and chips go to the Rockfish takeaway in Dartmouth. They have a proper restaurant as well. We also stayed at Ford's House B&B for three nights, one of the best ones we have ever stayed in.

This review is for Dartmouth

We stayed in our VW T5 camper and awning with 2 boys (aged 5 & 1 1/2) for two nights (during the storms & survived! )and had a lovely time at this site. Couldn't fault the showers / toilets - we used the showers in the evening and didn't have to queue. Asked to be close to the play area and we were three pitches away - thank you. The play area itself is a wooden kind (suggested for the use of 3 - 12 year olds) but our 1 1/2 year old loved it. There is also a little area for the older kids to kick a football around too. Didn't use the shop but a huge thank you for the loan of a 25m electric cable (our 10m wouldn't fit)! Great site for families - our eldest made a friend which was lovely! Approximately 5 minutes drive from Dartmouth (big Sainsburys for the foot shop) - shame the onsite pub has now closed but we enjoyed our bbqs! Will definitely stay again!

Friendly welcome on arrival but slow booking in even though we had pre booked.

This review is for Dartmouth

Friendly welcome on arrival but slow booking in even though we had pre booked. Very good toilet/shower facilities and even though site was packed we never had to queue for showers. Only real fault with this site is that caravans/campers and tents are everywhere around you, we couldn't look out of any one window and not see inside someone else's unit - we could even see what was on the television in the caravan in front of us - so no privacy at all!! Couldn't even sit outside camper on a nice evening without children running around us shouting and screaming. No 'sea views' as advertised - only 'glimpses' between caravans. We were also unfortunate to be parked next to the facilities point so had people congregating next to our camper van getting water, disposing of rubbish etc from as early as 6 in the morning right through the day to as late as 10.30 at night. This site is more for families than for couples wanting a bit of peace and quiet. Could be improved by reducing no. of pitches so allowing more personal space for each user. If you want peace and privacy would probably be better to use outside of school holiday times.

Ideal base for walking the coast path, either to Dartmouth or Start Point Lighthouse.

This review is for Dartmouth

Ideal base for walking the coast path, either to Dartmouth or Start Point Lighthouse. Awesome views, some steep parts but safe and easy. Beaches are clean and safe but not sand so not so good for children and hard on the feet. Good local places to eat and a visiting 'chip van' some evenings to the site.
