Returning again to this wonderful site. So relaxing and quiet and so near the beach. Coming back from a walk to the beach seems further as it is a steep hill but we stopped to catch our breath and admire the scenery - what a view. The site is well marked out and we had a lovely view of the coast even from inside the motorhome.

Took a stroll to the village shop and then on to the pub for a delicious lunch. All wheelchair accessible but challenging in places as it is a very old village.

On site the disabled bathroom was very adequate and clean and they made sure we were sited as near as possible to facilities. On site shop is well stocked with essentials and fresh bread daily.

Looking forward to going back again soon.

This is a lovely family site close to Slapton Sands, which is a shingle beach with steeply shelving sea so not so good for small children. A few miles from Dartmouth, we were there during regatta week and it was very busy but great for crabbing. A few miles further, using the ferry from Dartmouth is Brixham, which has a harbour and nice streets to wander round.

In the opposite direction through Kingsbridge are lots of sandy beaches that have gentle shelving and clear water, great for swimming.

The site doesn't have enough showers for the amount of campers, especially considering that most are in tents so don't have their own facilities. Pitches are mostly flat and we had a warm welcome from all the wardens.

The bread van that arrives most mornings was great, as were the fish and chips from the van on Monday night. We had a good meal in the pub in the village, which accepted dogs. Good dog walking from site along the paths round the village, at the beach and in the ley.

This is a lovely site, 5 minutes from Slapton Sands (which are shingle) and 5 minutes from Slapton village centre with shop, church and two pubs; our best UK site this year.

Most of the site is flat but there are some sloping pitches around the edges, especially the ones with a sea view.

Toilets, laundry etc always clean and seemed to cope well despite a fairly busy site.

There is a small on site shop and a bakery calls every week day morning. Monday night is fish and chip night with a mobile van arriving about 6pm.

There are some lovely walks from the site and if you want to go further afield there is a regular bus service between Dartmouth and Kingsbridge.

If you are planning visiting with a caravan then you need to be a member of the Camping and Caravan Club, and only 8 caravans are allowed on site at any one time.

Booked 2 nights and then extended to 4 nights on a standard grass pitch. Heavy rain the 1st night, and constant light rain on the last day meant the ground never totally dried out despite the great weather in between, but never became a problem. My pitch was gently sloping and required the use of small ramps.

Not surprisingly this time of year, the site was pretty much full mainly with families in tents. The only downside was that the small toilet/shower block could not cope in the morning (it was cleaned in the afternoons) and there were queues for all facilities, including dishwashing.

The wardens were always helpful during my stay. Mobile phone (O2) and 3G ('3') reception was good, radio and digital TV OK. Recycling facilities were near the entrance.

Slapton Ley is a 5 minute walk away and it was great to wander down to the shingle beach on the sunny evenings. Torcross can be reached on foot in about 15 minutes - the pubs/restaurants there and in the village of Slapton next to the site were always busy.

All of the routes to the site are narrow in places. There is a pretty good farmshop just outside Torcross, on the road to Kingsbridge which was a very busy town at this time of year with a good selection of small shops. I never made it to Dartmouth due to the limited bus timetable on the Sunday and then the poor weather on the last day, so that's for another time.

The closest I got to visiting Salcombe again was the NT's Overbeck's gardens - a lovely place with a good coffee shop, but the recommended driving route was. Er. Memorable! Very tight and twisty in places with plenty of parked cars to add to the entertainment. Somehow squeezing between a high wall and an oncoming Mini was a particular highlight.

Not the easiest site to get to/from but a great location and I will definitely visit again.

We arrived in a motorhome having phoned ahead, the wardens were welcoming and helpful and we were shown to a lovely spot with great sea views up the coast toward Dartmouth, the pitches were nicely spaced and quite flat. The whole site had a nice relaxed feel to it.

There are two nice pubs about half a mile into the village, and the bus along the coast can be caught on the hour at the bottom of the hill, short walk from the campsite. Close to the site is a long shingle beach with beautiful views with good parking area and toilets.

Dartmouth's just a short bus ride away, great town very traditional, with boat trips up and down the river and where you can get a ferry to the other side of the river and then a old fashioned steam train to paignton, to return by boat along the coast to Dartmouth, what a lovely day out, the tickets can be bought by the railway cafe, (called a round robin).

We had a smashing couple of days and couldn't fault the site at all. Will definitely stay again.

Slapton Sands is by far the best campground we have stayed at within the UK this year.

It has great clean facilities, free showers (there's even a separate room with a baby bath for little ones), a wonderful atmosphere - our 4 year old got together with other similarly aged kids in the late afternoon to whizz around on their scooters and bikes on the ring road - going past our tent every lap with a huge grin on his face!

Despite the rain we had on two of our four days we found lots to do locally - walking down to the beach (5min) or up to the village (3min) - no shops in the village but two pubs open for lunch and dinner (but not in between, ie closed from 3 - 5. 30pm), biking along the beach road, walking and running around the nature reserve trails of Slapton Ley, playing in the pebbles and rockpools of Torcross (icecream shop here too).

Then there's Dartmouth, with it's well presented castle (English Heritage) and the little ferry into Dartmouth centre. And a day at Blackpool Beach (7pounds entry) would be well spent - we dropped in for an hour on our way home. We didn't have time to get to the nearby lighthouse, but it was on our list of things to do. Highly Recommended.
