Our second visit to this wonderful campsite, very generous pitches, not crammed in like at some other campsites, staff very friendly & helpful, Great play area, our 6 year old loved it.

Shower, toilet & dishwashing facilities excellent & small shop in reception selling basic essentials.

Only 5 minutes walk to beach down the hill, Queens Arms pub in Slapton village 5 minutes away does great food. Start Bay Inn in Torcross a couple of miles down the coast does amazing fish & chips, get there early though!

And lastly, lovely views of the sea from parts of the site. Can't recommend this site enough, certainly my favourite of all I have used, can't wait to go back!

Firstly the drive from kingsbridge was tight to say the least. Try to follow a local bus if you can, or study the bus timetable so you don't meet them.

Site facilities old but clean.

Pitches seem small and on top of each other, our camper pitch was on the grass, right in front of an old couples caravan, blocking their view completely.

Pubs. Both take dogs! short walk to both. Lovely village.

The beach, shingle, hard to walk on but there is a path that goes over tom tor-cross.

Would we go back. No

Friendly greeting on arrival, warden used to live a few miles away from our home town. Pitch level and generous with good views across the site out to sea.

Facilities are to usual club site standards and good variety of items in the reception shop.

Slapton Ley and 'sands' are a short walk down the hill with good guided walks, leaflets available in reception. At the entrance to the Ley there is a chalk board for sightings of wildlife which is very useful.

The walk along Slapton Sands to Torcross is worth it with the pub at the other end making it worth the effort.

Slapton village is 5 mins up the lane with 2 good pubs & food, lovely lanes to stroll around and a great village shop (licensed). We met some really friendly locals and noticed that there is a good, regular bus service with the stop just up from the campsite entrance.

We loved it here and will definitely return.

I stayed on this site the weekend of the royal wedding. The weather was not brilliant, thunder storms on the first night and then rain and wind for the rest of the time.

But despite this my and I partner had a brilliant time. The weather was nice enough for 2 walk to the 2 local real ale pubs and even sit outside.

The site was very well maintained and exceptionally friendly. The staff were knowledgeable about the area and able offer lots of advice on things to do and where to eat and drink.

They were also very helpful when our car wouldn’t start as we were about to leave. The helped me contact a local garage and we very reassuring.

The site is a little hidden gem. Close to a beach that stretches for miles, a beautiful nature reserve and 2 pubs that serve brilliant beer and food, what more could you want.

This site has plenty to offer for a short stay or a week away. As a non member it was a little pricey, but I'll be going back so that says it all

Just returned from a short 4 day break with my OH away from our 2 daughters - bliss!

This is a lovely site. Well laid out with some pitches having fantastic sea views. It is very quiet at night and people are very good at abiding by the rules with absolutely no noise after 11.00 p.M.

The toilet block is kept immaculately clean throughout the day and even though there are only 3 showers(3 male and 3 female)I only queued once and that was for no more than 5 minutes.

Water is constantly hot and plentiful.

The reception also sells some camping basics and stocks milk, bacon, sausages, bottled water and cold cans at a reasonable price.

The wardens (and the assistant wardens)are very friendly and helpful.

Our pitch was a bit odd being on the point of a triangle with 2 other pitches diagonally behind to our right and left. This meant we had to pitch quite close to the circular road but to be honest this didn't present any problems.

As non members of the C&CC I know the pitch fee is on the slightly high side but it is a price worth paying for such a lovely, small, friendly, clean and quiet site.

The South Hams area is a really beautiful location and has quickly become a favourite.

Lovely walks, beautiful coast and some fabulous little villages and towns to visit. Kingsbridge and Dartmouth are well worth a visit and if you get the time take the drive to Start Point lighthouse and walk some of the coastal footpath. We also visited the village of East Prawle and ate a fine lunch at a little cafe (the Piglet Cafe). The Pigs Nose Inn is just across from the cafe and although we didn't eat or drink there it looked a fabulous pub selling real ales and local ciders straight from the wood.

Take a walk round Slapton Ley nature reserve nd do the walk from Slapton Ley to Tor Cross and visit the memorials marking the events when the local villages were evacuated to enable the beaches to be used for D-Day rehearsals and when the Americans lost over 900 soldiers in a tragic accident.

Eating out is a pleasure and we ate 3 out of 4 nights in the Queens Head in the village of Slapton, just 5 minutes walk from the site. It's a lovely local with some excellent real ales and good value food.

All in all, highly recommended.

Just returned from Slapton Sands. Here's my (re)view.

The area is very beautiful, local towns of Dartmouth & Kingsbridge are lovely and the trip on the car ferry with steam railway are exciting for all. Beaches are lovely as well, our favourite was Blackpool Sands-10 minutes away.

The site itself just wasn't for us (sorry to say!). Far too regimented, told exactly where to put our tent and car. Main reason for this is that it was so so busy. They had crammed in so many tents.

When you tried to drive off the site and you had to navigate past other tents, at points we were inches from guy ropes. Also, play area was small for the site. Not all the site had sea views, only field furthest from reception so ask to be pitched on that part, we couldn't as it was full.

Toiler/shower block were spotless and had lots of hot water which was good. Laundry was expensive though but had 2 areas to hang out towels etc. They need to put in more showers as sometimes there were queues of 4 or more people. Also, areas to empty chemical toilets needed to be clearly defined as I saw someone empty it into drain by drinking water!

Anyway, maybe I'm just being fussy! Plus points were area & beaches for us, loved them.
