Alan Rogers Review

Slapton Sands Camping & Caravanning Club site is situated close to the charming village with tiny lanes and cottages, a shop and two historic pubs, one dominated by the ruined tower of an old monastery. This site is on a well kept meadow overlooking the bay – the sea views are panoramic from some areas of the site, with shelter provided by some large bushes and the surrounding hedge. There are 105 grass pitches, some with a slight slope, 52 have 16A Europlugs, while 10 are on hardstandings. Motorhomes and tents are accepted, plus a maximum of 8 caravan pitches which are reserved for Club members. Safari tents available to hire.

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

The village (unsuitable for caravan & motorhome traffic) is about half a mile inland from the shingle beach of Slapton Sands and the fresh water Ley which is administered as a nature reserve by the Field Studies Council. This area was used for rehearsals for the WW2 Normandy landings, when the whole population was evacuated – there are memorials, including a tank in the village of Torcross. The quaint port of Dartmouth is seven miles, Kingsbridge eight miles and a variety of beaches and coves around the beautiful South Hams coastline are within easy reach.

From the North on the A38 Exeter-Plymouth road, take A384 to Totnes. Just before the town, turn right on A381 to Kingsbridge, ignore the first sign to Slapton. Continue on A381 to turn left at A379 to Slapton Sands. Continue along beach road. Turn left to Slapton village and site is 200 yards on your right. This is the only recommended route as Slapton is unsuitable for large or towed vehicles. Do not pay attention to the "Slapton 5 miles" sign or use sat nav to Slapton, set via Torcross.

From the West on A38 leave at A384 to Totnes. Then as above.
