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.

This review is for Slapton Sands

After a long and exhausting 12 hour car journey from Glasgow we arrived to a most disappointing welcome from the site manager who seemed to be going out of her way to make check in difficult and obstructive as possible. Thankfully, Deb and Andy, while visibly embarrassed by the "greeting" saved the day and the club reputation. The site itself is delightful, set amongst beautiful countryside and views of the sea in the distance, stunning! Initially where we were led to pitch was poor quality (rabbit holes and pitted) and after some discussion we were able to pitch a little out of the designated area. From there on we thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the facilities were clean and although a bit dated, very respectable. Slapton beach (shingle) steeped in history, is a short pleasant walk from the site while the Queens Arms in Slapton village offers a friendly welcome and delicious food.

Friendly site staff, clean and great sea views for some.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Friendly site staff, clean and great sea views for some. However we only stayed one night - too busy and crowded, not a great pitch either and so expensive compared to the previous 4 nights we'd had at a farm certificated site, �75 for 4 people for only 2 nights and you still have to pay for WiFi @ �2 per day per device - you must change that in today's techy world, at least members should get it for free especially if they have teenagers, that's not very 'friendly' and WiFi is now so easy and cheap to install. Sorry but we have decided that we have moved on from family sites it seems. We went back to our Devon field for �25 for 2 nights - it was just as good and a great view too. Nothing wrong with the facilities, beach was disappointing though. Staff couldn't be more helpful, but we were so disappointed we wrote off the second nights pitch fees.

Fabulous welcome from Deb and Andy. Friendly and helpful wardens prepared to go the extra mile. Perfect location. Fabulous pitch overlooking the sea. Tower Inn - fantastic gastro pub. Queens Arms - great pub. Both extremely dog friendly and within 5 minutes walk of the site. Great secured dog walk on the site. Spent 4 fantastic days on this site. Can't wait to go back. Slapton village is absolutely stunning.
