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.

Fantastic location, can not be faulted.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Fantastic location, can not be faulted. Our experience however was spoiled over confusion as to whether camp fires were permitted. We were informed they were at the time of booking, however it transpired they were not when we lit one! We were disappointed with the way this was handled and were left feeling we had made the mistake. Good job the weather was okay!

This review is for Slapton Sands

A wonderfully situated campsite with close beach access and masses of things to do in the wider area. We had a quiet corner pitch and really enjoyed our stay. Yes the washrooms are a bit small and queues at peak times. Yes the shop hours are a bit mean. But these are minor quibbles.. Reasons to stay - the views, the well cared for site, the bakery van, the local village pubs, Slapton Ley, the Devon coast, the walkable beach, the night sky,.. thoroughly recommended.

This review is for Slapton Sands

Being new to camping, this was the first site we had booked through the club. I thought it looked lovely from the website but was a little wary about the showers as had read in reviews that people found you had to queue. This was not a problem at all, even though part of our stay was over a bank holiday weekend. The staff were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our 4 night stay. We had an idyllic spot where we were able to see the sea and despite the site being full of families, it was very quiet and relaxed. There were so many places to visit from the site, although all by car. We wanted to cycle, but wouldn't have been brave enough on those coastal roads! However, we drove to Haldon Forest one day, where they had plenty of varied trails and thoroughly enjoyed this. The Queens Arms was really welcoming and we enjoyed a great meal there which was a short walk away. We would love to go back again!
