We had a very pleasing stay here over half term for two nights. Although we were not members we were welcomed and every effort was made to accommodate our late booking. The weather was dreadful, but the site was always clean and cheerful.

The showers were modern and roomy, with plenty of hot water. The location of the site is great, within walking distance of Slapton and its two super pubs and within 5 mins of the beach.

There is also a good bus service along the coast if you don't want to drive everywhere.

Only annoying thing was the man on the sit on lawnmower!

Highly recommended.

Slapton Sands is a lovely little area and this site is charming with nice sea views (when it wasn't covered in fog, sadly the weather wasn't great during our stay)it is well kept with pretty grounds and chickens strolling around which we loved!

The site has a small shop and the wardens were friendly when we arrived. The shower/toilet block was very clean but I felt it could do with being modernised as it looked a bit old and dated, one thing that needs to be remedied is the way the shower curtains are positioned as it means they cling to you as you are trying to shower, not nice! We felt a few more showers would have been nice as we had to queue quite often, and it was really quiet during our stay so must be really hard to get one in high season!

There are a couple of pubs a short walk away in the village, although we were ignored for so long whilst waiting to be served at the Tower inn we decided not to book a table there(barman too busy talking to his mate!) In the end we ate at the other pub in the village and the meal was nice. Another night we drove down the road to the Kings Arms which specialised in sea food, very nice if you love fish!

We would love to return to this part of Devon and would stay here again, hopefully next time the sun will shine!

Lovely site, we had distant sea views (when it wasn't covered in fog) as the weather wasn't great during our stay.

Shower/toilet block clean but could do with an upgrade, didn't like the way the cold soggy shower curtain clung to me and I heard others say the same. It could do with more showers as had to queue a few times and there were not many units there during our stay!

Well kept and maintained grounds and loved the resident pair of chickens wandering round!

Nice site in a great location, good pubs in walking distance although was ignored for 15 minutes waiting to be served at the Tower inn while the barman chatted to his mate, so decided not to book a table there! we ate at the other pub in the village and that was nice and drove down the road to the Kings Arms for some great fish dishes. Would return here for sure.

Have just returned from a week long stay at Slapton Sands and had a great time.

Facilities are well maintained, however they most definitely need to build another shower block - three showers each for men/women is not enough! They were in constant use from 6. 30 am and then up until 10pm and often you had a short wait. However, this was in peak summer so perhaps isn't always the case.

We were lucky enough to be pitched quite close to the shower block however if you were on the other side of the site it would be a bit of a walk. The existing block could also do with a bit of an upgrade - a lick of paint, more bins etc.

Was also quite noisy most of the time due to the amount of children on site, however again it was peak school holiday time.

All pitches appeared to be flat however a lot of them are sloping. Nice views of the coast and Start Bay lighthouse can be seen (and heard!) of a night.

Small shop on site stocked the basics, however we would have preferred it to open earlier than 9am as we like to have breakfast earlier than this. Only a short walk into Slapton (don't drive it if you value your wing mirrors!), would highly recommend the Queens Arms for excellent good value food - we ate there most nights.

The Tower Inn also had a good atmosphere, we didn't eat here however as they were fully booked and the menu was a bit fancy for us anyway.

The site is in a great location with Slapton Ley and Torcross only a short walk away, and Kingsbridge and Dartmouth a short drive. Beware if you are towing or in a large vehicle however as most of the 'A' roads are very narrow!

All in all an excellent base ad would recommend the site to all.

Just spent four nights at this site and wish I'd booked longer as we were very lucky with the weather and had a great time. Stunning location and a short walk to the beach. Everything I would say has already been covered, except.

If you walk to the very end of the beach at Torcross there's a set of steps going up, beside a WWII pill-box, to some cottages. Beside them to the left is a narrow alley that leads to more steps heading down onto a secret beach. There's another pill-box that my 8-year old lad managed to get inside, and crystal clear waters.

Also, if looking for supplies, carry on past the post office and butchers at Torcross, up the hill, and there's a poorly signposted lane on the right that leads to a wonderful (if pricey) farm shop selling fruit, veg, fresh bread, fantastic meat, and pizzas.

Only downside was getting cold wine or beer. Impossible unless you want to pay through the nose at the farm shop. Had to drive to Kingsbridge (20mins each way) Morrisons and buy along with bags of ice.

Booked 4 nights by phone just 1 week before visit (not members of C&CC). Friendly reception on arrival (after 6pm), given a choice of pitches. We chose a pitch with sea views, fairly level, we didn't need EHU.

Very quiet site, facilities kept very clean, the small number of available showers didn't affect us as we chose to go out of the rush hour. Plenty of hot water.

Grass is kept mowed and cuttings collected so you didn't get grass trodden into your unit.

A great base to explore south Devon. Interesting local history, nearby huge unspoilt beach is small shingle, sea water is lovely and clear (but cold!).

Nearby Blackpool Sands isn't sand, it's small shingle. The facilities there are very good, beachside cafe and shop. Toilets had Classic FM playing. You can park there next to the beach, all day cost £5 (reduced to £4 in the afternoon).

Nice walk along the seafront to Torcross, about 1. 5 miles from the site.

We liked it here so decided to book an extra two nights. We were offered membership of C&CC so we could have the non-member surcharge refunded for our first 4 nights and the additional nights at the member rates, effectively getting 12 months membership at no extra cost. We took them up on the offer.

Will go back again when we next return to the area.
