What a lovely campsite, quiet and clean, good tv reception, 5 mins walk from town, good helpful wardens. Mostly grass pitchs with no electric hook up. There are 4 raised herb beds with a help your self sign on them, will definitely return next year as there is so much to see and do in the area.

We were in the area and was looking for somewhere to stay for just one night. The wardens were really friendly and helpful. Place is spotless and is highly recommended. Actually appreciated no electricity as the phones and iPads ran out of battery. We actually had to talk amongst ourselves hehe! Was great, booking back here later in the summer! Not the quietest place I have been to, but you can't be in town and expect quiet. Slept well, had wonderful walks and now also looking to go back to enjoy the boat, train and bus trips on officer locally.

Yet another splendid few days at this site. The wardens couldn't be more helpful. This site is in a wonderful position and even after several years of coming back we still find new things to do ! Yes there is no electricity but, hey, we have these things called inverters now if you must watch TV. The amenity block is a bit dated but is kept spotless, always. All in all one of the best sites we visit, thank you.

Our first outing in our Romahome and first visit to a caravan site so don't have anything to compare. Booked by telephone with a really helpful (and very patient) lady. Lovely welcome from reception staff. Chose to be away from road so pitched against wall - perfect for us apart from being next to a couple with a blaring tv - but that's hardly the fault of the site. The loos were old fashioned but spotless. We ran out of camping gaz overnight but there wasn't any to buy (apparently they only keep one bottle and it had gone) - bit of a disaster for our planned breakfast as with no hook up we couldn't even have a cuppa. Went to The Green Cafe at the top of town for a superb breakfast in their gorgeous courtyard garden.

2 suggestions - the loos are closed at 11. 00 for 30mins for cleaning - very annoying if (like I did) you arrive at 11. 01- would be helpful if the site made either the disabled or the other gender loo available to all for the duration of the clean. We found the method of reserving your pitch a bit odd - you have to leave something non valuable to show its taken. As Newbies we didn't have much so had to leave one of the children (joke!) Not sure why you aren't just given a reserved sign to put up - but maybe this is the norm?

Totnes is fabulous and we are delighted to have found such a convenient site - will be back again very soon. Thanks so much to the super friendly staff who made us feel very welcome.

What a wonderful clean tidy camp site, the wardens are all great, there is nothing to much trouble for them, its a shame there is no electric on site, but if there was then, it would be too full with visitors, the site itself is flat and well spaced out and the nearby town of totnes is a pleasure, with plenty of shops, back on site the toilets and showers are spotlessly clean,

Another lovely stay at Steamer Quay. The location of this site takes some beating. Quiet, leafy but virtually in the centre of Totnes and right next to the river cruise departure point and riverside walks. The site is well kept and the loo block clean and functional, if a bit old. The site was full when we were there but the shower block didn't seem to struggle. No electric hookup does restrict the appeal for some, I guess, but we find it quite liberating! Also it means we can get a pitch in July!

This time we took the Round Robin bus/train/boat trip, a great day out to lovely Dartmouth. Lots to do in the area, Paignton Zoo, Brixham, South Hams coast which is stunning.

Well recommended.

Stopped off here for a week on the return journey from Cornwall, although listed as a caravan site we have a folding camper and were made welcome even as non-members.

This is a small site of some 40 pitches, no EHU available, some of the reviews mention noise and this was very noticeable to us as we have a canvas roof! The pitches along the far end have houses on the ther side of the fence and we chose not to pitch there as there was a lot of children noise when we arrived.

We parked along the fence adjacent to the road and suffered here due to the fact that there are speed-bumps in the road and every lorry or bus that passes makes a hell of a noise and shakes the camper! This is in no way a peaceful site area, BUT don't forget we have a canvas roof, in an insulated caravan it might not be so bad.

The site is extremely well maintained and site staff very helpful and friendly, facilities although spotless were slightly dated now, but totally adequate and plentiful.

This is an excellent area for visiting Dartmouth, brixham, babbacombe, paignton and many other towns. The round-robin ticket from the office near the site gives you a trip by bus to Paignton then steam train to kingswear then ferry to dartmouth where you can spend the day before getting the 90 minute cruise back to Totnes, a great day out.

No child play areas which didn't bother us, but mainly caused by the sites small size.

Excellent site. Position of site, great, close to town etc. Very friendly wardens. Very clean, quiet, small but good. Only bad thing, no electric. In all, my wife and myself will be going back and back to this site until they close {being a council site, and we all know what councils are like}

The toilets on site are clean and old but good,

Close by there a good selection of places to eat and drink,

Just stayed for 3 nights at Steamer Quay, Totnes. Easy to walk into the town. Also walked up the Main Line train station (about 15mins) and caught train to Exeter for the day.

There is plenty to do in and around Totnes including boat trips to Dartmouth from the quay just outside the site. There are only grass pitches and no electric hookup.

The ground is however hard and had no trouble leaving even after a night of heavy rain.

The toilets are tired and in need of updating. However the wardens do a splendid job of making the best of them and keeping them clean.

Also the wardens were extremely helpful and friendly.

Would we stay again, ? of course we would.

In spite of being in the centre of a bustling town (shops just a bridge away)I found it very quiet & only peopled by retired campers.

With it's easy access to both river & bus networks a very good site. The toilets & showers were very clean & although only two ladies showers this was more than adequate for the size of the site.

It was refreshing to be able to choose my own pitch with the option of moving if another one became vacant during my stay.

The round robin trip via boat?steam train & open top bus is very good value.

The only downside for me as a lone camper (not a CC member) was the price.
