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).

We stayed in one of the new Ready Camp units which was very comfortable.

This review is for Slapton Sands

We stayed in one of the new Ready Camp units which was very comfortable. We have stayed here many times before (in our own tent), love it for its location and views and accessibility (by bus) to nearby towns and (by foot) to the village with shop and pubs. Staff very friendly and helpful. Facilities kept clean and tidy. Site well managed. Don't forget to support the Church Cafe each Sunday in St James for tea and cake in lovely surroundings.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Originally booked for seven nights but weather was excellent so booked a couple more nights,the amenities were very clean,had fish and chip van on Sunday nights and mobile baker on Tuesday and Thursday.The dog enjoyed the beach and the sea,there is plenty of walking to do especially the three walks around Slapton Ley and of course the Coastal walk.We drove to Beesands it was a bit narrow in places for the motor home but well worth it for the fish and chips from Brittania on the Beach,then we had a walk up to Torcross to see the tank memorial and more fish and chips from the Start Inn most enjoyable sitting near the sea eating fish caught locally and then even more fish and chips on the Sunday.

This is a really nice site.

This review is for Slapton Sands

This is a really nice site. Set at the edge of a nature reserve and a long shingle beach, there are great views and great walks to be had. A bus service also takes you into Dartmouth or Kingsbridge if you want to go further afield. There are two nice dog friendly pubs in Slapton doing food and a 30 minute walk will take you to Torcross where there is a pub specialising in seafood - glorious fish and chips! We enjoyed our stay immensely and look forward to going back.
