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).

Be careful not to go the ferry route through Dartmouth - bit steep, narrow & winding.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Be careful not to go the ferry route through Dartmouth - bit steep, narrow & winding. Really friendly and helpful wardens - Sheila & Julian. Sea views - peaceful - friendly. Fish & Chip man arrived on Saturday evening but we went into Kingsbridge (next village) to the Start Bay Inn....fabulous variety of catch of the day - and plenty of it. The story of Operation Tiger drew us, Salcombe definately worth a visit. The Kingsbridge food and music festival was fun All in all a fabulous 3 days

This review is for Slapton Sands

This was our first visit to this campsite and we were pleased with the warm and friendly welcome we were given by Sheila and Julian who, with the assistant wardens, have worked very hard to improve this site this year. We were given a choice of pitches which we really appreciated and the pitches were well spaced out with plenty of room around them. The facilities onsite were always immaculate with constant hot water, soap etc even though the site was almost full. The children on site seemed to be having a good time in the playground and enjoying the run of this quiet, safe campsite. The well stocked shop also had a lot of information for new visitors to the area and although we didn't have any problems, we knew that the team would be happy to help us. An excellent base for visiting South Devon !
