Alan Rogers Review

California Cross Camping & Caravanning Club site in South Hams is off the beaten track and surrounded by rolling countryside. The site is positioned between the sandy beaches of South Devon’s Heritage coast and the dramatic landscape of the Dartmoor National Park. Peace and tranquillity is what you will find here. The California Inn and a shop, both next door to the site, serve and sell locally produced food. Nearby, Modbury and Ivybridge offer a range of shops and places to eat. Bigbury on Sea boasts the biggest sandy beach in south Devon. Catch the sea tractor from here to Burgh Island. For windsurfing, canoeing, and coastal walks, go to nearby Wonwell beach. Mothecombe and Coastguards beaches are also not to be missed. The site has 80 grass or hardstanding pitches (some seasonal), most have an electric hook-up point.

Non-members are welcome and may join on-site. Please speak to site staff for details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Modbury will also appeal to walkers. The Two Moors Way starts here, traversing the National Park on its way to Lynmouth on the north Devon coast. Heading south, the Erme-Plym Way links Ivybridge to Wembury. The beach here is known for its surfing and rock pooling.
