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).

A lovely clean site with a nice view looking over start bay. There are 2 nice pubs in the village of slapton which is only a short walk from the site. Some good beaches nearby and plenty of nice places to visit around the South Hams area. Ideally situated :)

This was our second visit to this site and we will be back. It is in a great location.

This review is for Slapton Sands

This was our second visit to this site and we will be back. It is in a great location. Within walking distance of Slapton Sands. Easy access to the coast path. Walking distance to the village with two eating options - one 'cheap and cheerful' and the other a gastropub. Facilities are good and the site has sea views in two directions. Best of all are the on site team. Always friendly and helpful and unbelievably hardworking. Even when the site was full I never found the facilities less than spotless (and I am fussy). The rules that keep everyone happy were charmingly but clearly enforced and as a result the site was a real pleasure to stay on. Thank you.

Upon arrival met by very friendly staff. Easy registration process.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Upon arrival met by very friendly staff. Easy registration process. Good local knowledge and things to do. Even knew the bus timetable! Site was slightly uneven, on a very slight slope, didn't impede sleeping however. Site is in a good location for exploring the Devon coast. This was a very clean, well kept, friendly site. Will certainly return there at some point. Thanks Slapton Sands!

Clean; friendly; quiet.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Clean; friendly; quiet. Mix of campers, old, young (some VERY young!), good for tents and motorhomes alike. Pet friendly which may not be to everyones liking. BIG problem when busy/full: only 3 showers per gender. This detracts from the general 5 star rating of the site. Would be better to have more showers and lock the ones not needed when quiet, as many sites do. This was the only fault with the sanitary areas which were well maintained...(although why do no UK sites have squeegies instead of dirty mops???) Close to beautiful Devon country and coastal region and wildlife areas; good pubs within 10 mins easy walk; shop on site and excellent staff. We would visit again but not at busy times.
