We have just returned from a 10 day holiday at this site. The site is well run & the facilities are as good as I expected. The wardens were very welcoming & helpful & upon arrival we were given a choice of pitches. The only negatives are that I personally would have appreciated a personal cubicle & I did think that in some areas the pitches were quite close together. There is bus service outside the site but we didn't need to use it. A fish & chip van calls on a Sat, Tues & Thurs. I've never had food from a van before, but I'm so glad that we did from this one, the fish & chips were delicious & very reasonably priced. We spent the holiday walking areas of the coastal path, which is quite tough in places & which involved a couple of times, catching the ferry across to Kingsbridge. We saw this area at its absolute best as the weather was wonderful. We enjoyed lovely meals at various pubs & particularly liked the Sportsmans Arms Inn, about 4 miles from Dartmouth, where an excellent carvery is served. We also very much enjoyed a meal at the Ship Inn at Noss Mayo. The Cornish Pasty shop in Dartmouth is highly recommended for its pies & pasties. We did visit the Green Dragon pub in the village of Stoke Fleming, about a 15-20min walk. It is a lovely pub with good reviews & we did intend to eat there at some point but never managed to fit it in. I would recommend this site & I would definitely revisit again if I am in the area

Nice site with good facilities. Very friendly staff. Very handy for access to Dartmouth. Bus stop outside site and takes 10 to 15 mins depending on traffic. Would not like to walk it as there are no footpaths but there is an alternative but longer route if you wish to walk.

Shame that the pub at the entrance is closed as there is not a lot of eating places nearby. There is a small village, Stoke Fleming, in the opposite direction to Dartmouth about a 15 minute walk but be aware that some parts of the walk have no pavements and it's a little scary in parts. There is a pub there The Green Dragon, but it was closed when we visited the village.

Dartmouth is a beautiful place, plenty of ferries and tourist boat trips on the river. A steam railway across the river which goes to Paignton. Well worth a visit to Agatha Christies summer house up the river by boat. It's a National Trust property.

This site was much cheaper than others and consequently the pitches are very close together. Facilities were clean and plentiful and the site was well cared for. Small shop but they would order papers for you, the bus stopped outside the entrance a real bonus as parking in Dartmouth is a nightmare. Next door use to be something called Deer Park which is now empty and derelict which doesn’t unfortunately add to the ambiance of the area. We found it difficult to find a beach our dog could enjoy, the nearest beach Blackpool Sands have a very strict no dogs policy, considering the size of the beach it seems a bit mean not to allow dogs on a small area. Slapton sands was inaccessible due to the road being washed away. We drove to Goodrington Sands Paignton where dogs are allowed on the part of the beach adjacent to Young’s Park. The park itself is lovely and we found a wonderful cafe Cantina who welcomed everyone, dogs and children were well catered for.

We are members of CCC so chose this site to use up some vouchers.
Nice site, helpful staff and good sized pitches on HD with an over flow field for campers. Clean toilet block with plenty of toilets and showers but no privacy cubicles (bugbear). Small shop with only bare essentials! MH service point a bit of a squeeze to access and the entrance drive a bit rough with potholes although they were under repair as we left. The pub next door is closed and frankly a bit of an eyesore.
The site is well placed for the lovely Blackpool sands and the site is on a bus route although this stops early between 5 and 6. Taxis are available from town but be aware that they are self employed and very busy so be prepared to wait!
Lovely sea view from the site and a nice old pub in the village.
Falmouth is well worth a visit

This is a very nice site, although it's not actually in Dartmouth but you can get there with a reliable, if not very frequent, bus service with a stop directly outside the gate. It is actually in Stoke Fleming, a pretty village with a good pub and a well stocked village shop. A walk from the site takes you to the beautiful beach of Blackpool Sands, and there are many walks further afield along the Coast Path, or from Kingswear the other side of the Dart Estuary. The site is nicely laid out with the excellent facilities one expects from the Camping & Caravanning Club. Sadly the pub outside the site gate is no longer operative, and looks as though it has been derelict for some time. But The Green Dragon in the village is only a 10- or so minute walk away.

This was our first opportunity to try our new tunnel tent out, we were offered an overflow field with electric hook up, which proved, to be over the 3 nights we spent there extremely relaxing.

The main camping, for caravans, motorhomes and tents was extremely busy but where we had our tent the extra space was a bonus. The site is very well maintained, clean and a joy to be on, the toilet block, although only the one block seemed to be adequate for everyone. The showers are regulated well and a good shower can be had, the toilet block were cleaned on a daily basis, and to a high standard.

A chip van visited the site, within the time I was there, I would give this club site 10 out of 10.

Visited Dartmouth C&C in conjunction with Families Weekend for my daughter on course in the Navy at the Royal Naval College in Dartmouth. We found in a lovely site, excellent facilities and kept very clean. Great walks along the coast and easy to get into Dartmouth. Will go again very soon. Thoroughly recommended and hepled with contacts when we had electric problems,

Visited the site last year to 'check it out' as our favourite and the most convenient, Little Cotton has now been sold for housing development.

It's further out of Dartmouth, takes about 40 minutes to walk down the hill to Warfleet and on in to Dartmouth so we booked with some apprehension - but we needn't have been concerned at all.

Typically, this is a well run, spotlessly clean site which, as you can imagine, was rather full as it was August and the reason for our long weekend, Regatta week!

Excellent meet n greet, great team of wardens who escorted us to our large pitch which was perfectly adequate for the complete Karsten set-up. Short cut to the shower block which was immaculate, clean and never busy. 5 minutes walk in to Stoke Fleming and there is a bus stop outside of the site within 50 meters which is brilliant! Services to both Dartmouth and Plymouth (several hours apparently) hourly!

We highly recommend the Kings Arms in Strete which served excellent food and of course, Slapton Sands (dogs allowed all year) and Blackpool Sands (no dogs permitted). We enjoyed the stroll down hill in to Dartmouth, had our fun then popped back on the last bus at 1815, back to the site.

Definitely be back next year for Regatta week!

We have just returned from a fantastic break at CCCC Dartmouth, this is a well run sight with clean facilities and play area for the little ones, great friendly team who are only too happy to help.

There is plenty to do in and around the local area for instance, Buckfastleigh Otter and Butterfly which is a treat for animal lovers & children with the Devon valley steam railway next door. Paignton with it's shops, pier and beach is a good day out for all. Eating out may be a problem as there isn't much to choose from. We found the Queens Arms in Slapton a great place for good honest food at very reasonable prices and a very warm welcome (get in each as it is popular). Beaches for the little ones include Blackpool sands which you have to pay for parking but it's clean and safe and further along the coast road you have Slapton sands with the ww2 memorial to the service men who died in preperation for D day. Plenty of of boat trips and steam railway journeys to be had.

This is a lovely well kept site with sea views. It is on the outskirts of the village of Stoke Flemming which has a convenience store and a pub that does food. Dartmouth is only a 5 min drive away.

The hard standing pitches are level and well spaced out, some have trees around them. The facilities are spotlessly clean and there was always hot water for a shower. The staff were very accommodating and friendly. There is a new play area for kids.

There are a number of cruises to be had in Dartmouth there should be something for all tastes, we went on the paddle steamer river cruise which was wonderful. This is the only coal powered paddle steamer in operation in the UK.

Other places to visit are Brixham, Slapton Sands and Torcross where the Sherman tank monument sits that remembers the lives lost during the tragic events of the 'D' day training exercise.

There is a Lidl and a Sainsburys a short distance away.
