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.

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 review is for California Cross

Just come back from a full week at California cross and we had a great time on this lovely site. The site is rural with some local amenities, most of the grass pitches are sloping and some seemed narrow for the size of tents being pitched but overall a lovely place. The facilities were clean and well kept my only comment would be the small number of showers for a large site which created long queues in the morning. The site managers were very pleasant and friendly. Not a lot there for young children more of a relaxing break site. Will definitely go back soon

This review is for California Cross

We really enjoyed our stay at California Cross. Everyone so helpful and friendly. They even gave our dog a biscuit! our welcome was very warm and welcoming.The scenery is beautiful. We especially liked visiting Burgh Island and walking the dog along the beach at low tide was so refreshing. We returned home completely revitalised and rested. Will definitely be going there again . Nice site for families and couples alike.

This review is for California Cross

We only stayed 2 nights but could have stayed longer, there's plenty of beautiful scenery to enjoy and a variety of nearby places to visit. Close to the coast but Dartmoor isn't far away. We had a warm, friendly and helpful welcome from the site staff. The site is clean and looks well cared for, the only thing that would make it better for would be a dog walk but the verges outside are acceptable.
