Don't rely on sat Nav to get you here, it will take you down some scary narrow lanes! Use the main A379. The site is well cared for, slightly sloping with amazing views. Showers were hot and facilities clean and well tended. Easy walk into village, we ate at the Tower Inn. Very cute, tucked away, enjoyed a drink in the sunshine followed by a lovely meal in the candlelit dining room - not cheap though. Lovely walks along the coast to Torcross or Dartmouth. Great bus service also. It was August so very busy, so the limited number of loos and showers meant having to wait sometimes, a bit of a shock to the husband, men don't often have to queue for the loo!

Positives very near the beach, beautiful coastal walk to beesands, saw a seal, nature reserve was a joy to walk around.

Negatives dog walk very dirty and very small (dog owners did not pick up poo). Not enough showers 3 in total but six behind door washing facilities, if you do not get up early be prepared to queue. I understand that this is a family site but wardens did not reinforce no ball games or riding around toilet blocks. Very dissapointed

Also PLEASE do not follow sat nav you will get stuck very small lanes ext through village

We'd visited this site about ten years ago and on our most recent 10 day stop, we found it to be even better than we remembered.

There is plenty of space and many of the pitches have a view of the coast across the fields. The site is kept extremely clean and tidy and very well maintained. This includes the showers, toilets and washing facilities (not once did I see the remains of somebody else's dinner left in the bottom of the sink, which is never very nice). And this was at a very busy time of year. Added to this was a constant supply of hot water throughout the day (no rush to get to the showers before it runs out, which often is the case). Admittedly there was a bit of a queue at times for showers, but this is only be expected given that it appeared to be at near full capacity for most of our stay.

The staff were very friendly and went out of their way to be helpful. They clearly work very hard to provide an excellent campsite. The only slight criticism is that pitches are advertised as available from 1pm, although the details for what to do as there were no staff about were a bit lacking. We left a message on the answer machine and about 45 mins got a call back - all sorted in the end and the only small flaw we found for the whole stay.

The site shop is stocked sufficiently with the basics to keep you going and the bread van calls every morning, which always results in a long queue!

Although the number of caravans are limited, there were quite a few mobile homes on the site. There was also quite a turnover of pitches on a daily basis, rather than people pitching up for a week or a fortnight.

The location is ideal. You are on the edge of the quaint village of Slapton, which has its own shop and two pubs (one down to earth turning out decent pub grub, the other a more upmarket country pub). A pleasant 10 minute stroll in the opposite direction takes you to Slapton Sands, a pebble beach stretching a couple of miles in length, with clear water crashing onto the shore and big open skies above - wonderful. You can also catch the coastal bus service from here, to either Dartmouth or Kingsbridge, which is worth the journey if only to travel on the top of a double decker bus through the very narrow lanes - don't know how they do it! Behind you is Slapton Ley (a freshwater lake) which only serves to add to this very pretty part of the South Hams coast. The village of Torcross is at one end of the bay, with a very popular pub, two cafes and shops. The beach, although stoney, is lovely and the water very enticing. Stete Gate, at the other end, is a lovely very large beach, with facilities on hand and about a 30 min walk from the site.

Overall, a very well looked after site, with good facilities and in an excellent location. And wonderful views of the sea - what more could you want?

One of my top ten, lovely campsite. Very open to elements so it could get windy. Couple of pubs within walking distance. I advise anyone visiting here to take a bus ride as its astonishing how they go through tiny roads and villages. We ate in both pubs and they were lovely. We visited dartmouth and kingsbridge both had interesting charity shops. The washroom facilities were very good. The wardens were very helpful and let me change my allocated pitch to the vacant pitch I stayed on the previous year. I would recommend and return. Thank you

We stayed here at the end of a week of walking the SW Coast path and after staying at a few 'interesting' sites, I expected more from a C&CC site.

Firstly, the wardens whilst in no way were they rude, they were not very friendly and just very matter of fact. The pitches were quite small and as it was Bank Holiday weekend the site was very full and it felt very overcrowded, almost oppressively so.

The facilities were nowhere near enough to cope, 3 toilets and 3 showers in the mens and I believe similar in the ladies, and the wardens insistence on having ALL the facilities shut for two hours in the middle of the day appear ridiculous. Why not stagger the cleaning of each area and allow people to use disabled/family rooms in emergency.

I know it was a Bank Holiday and start of the half term, but that doesn't mean that parents can simply allow their children to roam around the site at all hours making lots of noise.

Maybe I was simply here at the wrong weekend of the year and to be fair I do normally avoid camping at such times, and the site does have nice views and is in a nice area, so I may return out of season to give it a second chance.

Very busy site, with lots of tents. Yet in the ladies block there were only 3 showers. Okay, there were 7 each of loos and sink cubicles, and they were all very clean, but I think more showers would be good as people had to queue.

The wardens could be friendlier - they were very helpful, but just lacking that certain friendliness.

The site is in a good location, the village just a couple minutes walk, and the bus stop about 5 minutes away.

And the fish and chip van came on the Sunday evening I think it was. Glad I was early in the queue cos they ran out of fish!
