Alan Rogers Review

Slapton is a charming village with tiny lanes and cottages, a shop and two historic pubs, one dominated by the ruined tower of an old monastery. This Club site is situated 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 115 grass pitches, some with a slight slope, 52 have 16A Europlugs, while ten are on hardstandings. Motorhomes and tents are accepted, but only eight caravan pitches, which are reserved for Club members.

The village (unsuitable for camping 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.


The modern, clean, heated toilet block is central, with washbasins in private cabins. Family room and separate unit for disabled visitors (with key). Washing machine and dryer. Motorhome services. Reception has a small library, gas and freezer for ice blocks. Small play area. WiFi (charged).

From A38 Exeter-Plymouth road, take A384 to Totnes. Just before town, turn right on A381 to Kingsbridge, then A379 to Slapton Sands. Along beach road turn left to Slapton village and site is 200 yds. on right. This is the only recommended route.
