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

So impressed with this site and the in particular the welcome on arrival from site managers Peter & Yvonne and Andy & Deb. After a long drive it was great to be greeted in a friendly and professional manner. Our pitch was close to the entrance and so we were able observe quite a few arrivals and everyone was afforded the same service, no matter the time of day or how busy they were. Getting to the site was a bit nerve-racking but go via Kingsbridge and time your trip to leave Kingsbridge as soon as the No93 bus arrives from Dartmouth, that way you won't have to confront a bus along the, in parts, very narrow lanes. The site is well maintained and kept clean and tidy - well done team.

This review is for Slapton Sands

We had a great time again, couple of difficult weather days but excellent friendly staff, great position allowing morning walk on the beach. We had easy week buy rolls from visiting bakery, Costa coffee in Kingsbridge then exploring the beaches and coves of the area, Hope Cove is great, and Bigland Bay worth a day of anyone's time. Dinner back at site and then watching the fishermen land Mackerel on the beach till dark. Also watched the Dartmouth Regatta fireworks from the beach. Will be back again
