The camping side of this site is cram as many as you can in ! We found a pitch, non were big, they have a line round to show you your pitch. Went for walk to the beach, when we came back we had someone in the next pitch and over our border line, which meant we were 3' apart ! Then a large tent was put up in the other side pitch, One foot over in our pitch, and over the next pitch too. Being so close you hear all that is said, radios etc, etc.

The showers were Not cleaned the two nights 3 days we were there. So you had a shower stepped out of the shower on to a wet grassy muddy floor. When we left there were Over 17 tents / camper vans on the same field all to close for comfort, in fact we did walk the whole site and everything on it is very close together. Will Not be going here again. We did email our displeasure, but no reply yet ?

The site is a fairly sloped field which is fenced on all sides preventing vehicles driving to the tents. Tents are pitched so closely that guy ropes can interlink which is dangerous for those walking around at night. Therefore the site feels very tightly packed and if your unlucky to have some noisy neighbours with no regard for anyone else don't expect an early night. The toilets are portacabins and whilst looking unsightly are functional and clean. There is a very overpriced shop on site stocking the majority of things you will need.

Went for aug bank hol 2013

Great if you have a tent and don't require electric !

Good points

Helpful staff, clean toilets, showers clean ( portaloos but perfectly acceptable), cubicles are small though but the water was hot ! plenty of loo roll amazing view, good village location, pub nearby (which I didn't get too ) not far from a wonderful beach. Location if the site spot on. Didn't seem bothered we were not off the pitch by 10 am which is a good thing !

Could do better

They love to cram you in esp if you want electric as all the hookups are in one corner so if you need electric take a long lead ! We have a folding camper and they crammed them in so we had to wait for others to leave before we could.

It's not the end of the world though and perfectly ok for a weekend. Any longer be choosy where you pitch if you get a choice :)

My wife and I love visiting Dartmouth for the Regatta in August. This year we booked a long weekend stay at this site.

Good points

There is a local shop 2 minutes away where you can get freshly baked bread. The view from the site is beautiful, especially when the moon is visible in the evening. There is also a local pub. The showers were clean.

Bad points

Unfortunately, despite its excellent location we were disappointed with our stay and actually left a day early. The main issue was that there were too many tents squeezed on the field.

Several tents were so close that they had guy ropes overlapping each other. The toilets, although clean, ran out of hand towels each day.

We tried a meal in the local pub, but were disappointed with the quality. The mashed potato appeared to be instant mash!

We came away with the impression that the camping side of their operation is of lesser importance then the static caravans and chalets. Which is a shame as the location is ideal.

GOOD POINTS: Excellent sea view. Shop/off licence, restaurant and Green Dragon pub all within a few mins walk away. Fairly convenient for Dartmouth, but is a hike on foot so most people would need to use the bus or their car etc. Blackpool Sands is an easy walk away but care needs to be taken as the road has no footway. During our stay we did not experience any problems with unreasonable behaviour or noise from other campers.

BAD POINTS: The campsite is poorly organized. Upon arrival we were shown roughly where to pitch and then left to get on with it. As the site became more busy other tents were located uncomfortably close to us which resulted in complaint to the proprietor. The toilets/showers are in two Portacabins and while these are attended, they were not very clean and often there was no soap or hand towels. While no fault of Leonards Cove campsite, the village church bells sound each quarter hour throughout the day and night and while this did not bother us it may be a nuisance to some. The tent pitches are not level and if you need 240v make sure to ask for this when booking as electric hookup points were few.

Reviewer: Coast walkers 17 reviews from this member

As a couple with a small two berth trailer tent without awning,we booked 2 nights at Leonards (1 acre)campsite,expecting it to be a small site,it was much bigger than expected with static caravan/chalets.

GOOD POINTS:Fish and chip Resturant / Take Away next to campsite (closed Sundays) General local store / Post Office selling Newspapers.Bus stop.Good location to walk to Dartmouth (3.5 miles)

BAD POINTS:A little expensive, but we were lucky to be squeezed into our sloping electric pitch. We noticed the other tent field didn't look secure, it had a low wall right next to the main road.

A few more amps on the electric point would have helped not trip the power when a neighbour used theirs.

Soap/hand towels would have been welcomed in toilets.CDP needed a tap with hosepipe. The Church Bells were delightful when we first arrived and we were in for a treat as they also rang all night every quarter of an hour.
