Near the South Devon Heritage Coast - sandy beaches and activity or peace and tranquility. The choice is yours.

You’ll find our California Cross Club campsite in South Hams, an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Off the beaten track and surrounded by rolling countryside, the campsite is nestled between the sandy beaches of South Devon’s Heritage coast and the dramatic landscape of the Dartmoor National Park.

Peace and tranquillity is what you’ll find here, along with a mix of level and sloping pitches and a good range of on-site facilities. The California Inn and a shop, both next door to the campsite serve and sell locally produced food.

Nearby Modbury and Ivybridge offer a range of shops and places to eat. The latter will also appeal to walkers. The Two Moors Way starts here, traversing the National Park on its way to Lynmouth on the north Devon coast. Heading south the Erme-Plym Way links Ivybridge to Wembury. The beach here is known for its surfing and rock pooling.

Bigbury on Sea boasts the biggest sandy beach in south Devon. Catch the sea tractor from here to pretty Burgh Island. For windsurfing, canoeing and coastal walks go to nearby Wonwell beach. Mothecombe and Coastguards beaches are also not to be missed.

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).

Worth Noting

Some pitches are sloping and chocks may be needed. Access to the campsite is along narrow country lanes with passing places. There is no dog walk on-site. TV reception can be poor in some areas.

WiFi

100% coverage cannot be guaranteed due to rural location, weather conditions and changing flora. These can cause variable signal strength. Hotspots are available. Prices.

Eat Local

The California Inn and a shop, both next to site, serve and sell locally-produced food and drink. Farm shop 4 miles away has local organic meat and vegetables, and a Farmers’ Market visits Totnes, Dartmouth, Ivybridge and Kingsbridge every month.

This review is for California Cross

All the staff were most patient, considerate and helpful with difficulties prior to setting off. This continued throughout our stay. A good centre to visit a variety of beaches, towns and attractions which are relatively close by. An excellent site with a very welcoming arrival that we would be happy to visit again.

It was such a delight to stay at California Cross, the perfect location for exploring the beautiful beaches and the countryside. The staff were so friendly, welcoming and helpful. The toilets, showers and basins were clean, with great hot showers. We were given the key to the disabled bathroom, which made it easier for us travelling with children, that had a basin, shower and toilet in one room. There is a little park within the site, with 2 swings and a slide, which made a great hangout for the children. It was so peaceful, with a very well stocked Spar 5 mins down the road, along with a garage, and pub serving yummy meals. I would definitely recommend this campsite, and best of all the night sky was stunning! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, thanks to the staff.
