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 comments of the five star reviews that I wanted to say have been covered. I would add that the friendliness of Keith, Lyndon and Jenny is exceptional. We were made to feel like long lost friends, and it was genuine. No Shop? No need. On the doorstep is a filling station and a Spar shop wonderfully stocked with the caravanner and camper in mind. Couldn�t fault any of it and sooooo peaceful . Five star all round. One other thing, the spaciousness of the pitches grass, hard standing or even both are very large. No feeling of being cramped. Another bonus, the south Devon Chilli Farm is only seven minutes drive away and we�ll worth a visit.

This review is for California Cross

Great welcome from team and good base for those wishing to tour the nearby coast and Dartmoor, site has garage by entrance with a great little Spar that has good range of food and drink, pub opposite that serves food - look out for the veg stall next to garage with honesty box for veg. Overall the only thing we would say negative is the shower blocks could do with a facelift, as is the case on many CC sites it seems
