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).

This review is for Slapton Sands

Despite my booking of the wrong weekend, the site team were very friendly and helpful in resolving the issue. (this may not have been so easy in high season) The site is a few minutes walk from the coast path and from the charming village. It made a great base for our coastal walk with great pubs/food along the way. In summer the beach at Slapton would be fantastic for families. I would highly recommend this site but imagine it gets quite full / busy in summer.

This review is for Slapton Sands

We followed the recommended route and although it did narrow to a single lane with no road markings on occasion, it wasn't too much of a problem. Just such a long way around but it has to be done! The welcome was probably the best we've ever had at a Club site. Fabulous. We had been thinking of not renewing our membership next year but the crew here restored our faith. Beautiful spot, lovely views but very open to the elements and exposed. So much so we cut our intended stay from 9 to 7 nights because we couldn't face the wind any longer. Perhaps we're wimps but the storms were nasty! Facilities are as you would expect from a club site, clean and well kept however the shower area is looking a little dated and could do with sprucing up. Nearby are lots of lovely walks and Slapton village itself is a delight. Thoroughly recommend the local pub! Great value meals and huge servings. Lots of other really lovely places to eat in the area at Torcross and Beesands, including tea shops and a little further away Dartmouth, about a 20 minute drive to the park and ride, which we used several times and do recommend. Dartmouth is a lovely town and there are lots of boat trips etc available. If you're after peace and quiet then this is a good site. It's worth the effort of the drive, just wish there was a little better shelter from the winds!

This review is for Slapton Sands

Although the site was not full there were queues each morning for the showers as there were only three womens and three mens! The Club also needs to invest in more hardstanding pitches. There had been a lot of rain and many of the grass pitches were unusable when we were there. Both the lack of showers and lack of hardstanding were universally commented upon. None of this is any reflection on the wardens who were wonderfully cheerful, efficient and informative.

This review is for Slapton Sands

This was our first visit to a club site and we were totally blown away. The staff on arrival were so welcoming and allowed us to view a number of pitches before we chose where we wanted to be. The pitch was flat and grassy and right by the play area. The site itself is incredibly well kept and the facilities we gave stars!! The children were safe to cycle around on their bikes and made some lovely friends. A 15 minute stroll downhill to a beautiful expanse of beach and on the Saturday night a fish and chip van turned up which was great. Would def recommend and def return xx
