Alan Rogers Review

Close to the long beach, well served by the adjoinIng farm shop and café you will find peace and quiet in abundance. With just 93 pitches, 60 on hardstandings, all with 16 amp electricity, the site is well located 6 miles south of Kingsbridge. The majority of pitches slope on this terraced site and are surrounded by mature trees adding a sense of privacy. Visit the local bird sanctuary at Slapton Ley, hire kayaks and paddle boards or fish from the shingle beach which is just a short walk away. If sailing is your passion, you can conveniently moor at East Portlemouth to explore the marvellous harbours and creeks of this lovely coastal area. The pubs and cafes in Slapton offer fish & chips and cream teas, plus a micro brewery is just a few minutes walk away. This site is good enough on its own to get you to join the CAMC: it is a popular site so booking is essential.

Start Bay is a great location to explore the South Devon coast. The coastal road takes you to the historic town of Kingsbridge and picturesque Dartmouth, or Paignton via the car ferry. The site has a small toddler play area and the local beach offers sea fishing and numerous water sports - RNLI lifeguards are not provided. Dog walkers need to consider the local footpaths have recorded adder activity.

N.B. Non-members may join on site and make a substantial saving on pitch fees, please speak to site staff for more details and to check pitch availability before arrival.

Location

Best route due to very narrow lanes: From the A38 turn onto the A384 towards Totnes and Kingsbridge. In Totnes turn right onto the A381 signed Kingsbridge. In 10 miles at roundabout turn right. Next roundabout go left towards Town Centre and follow signs A379 towards Dartmouth. Stay on the A379 for 6 miles and the site is on the left just after Stokenham.
