Large static campsite with touring fields (and two tent fields) set to one side set in the middle of the South Hams. Features 120 pitches, including 30 tent pitches and 80 16amp hook-ups. Has two modern very clean toilet blocks, complete with hairdryers, disabled facilities, as well as a family room and baby changing facilities. Also has a dishwashing room, laundry well-equipped shop with patio seating, (serves take-away food twice-weekly in high season) and a children’s playground. Also offers boat storage and has a dog walk. ...

A long, narrow lane leads to this campsite, which may be slightly tricky for larger motorhomes and caravans, but as there were many on site, it clearly is not an impossibility. It is slightly sloping, well kept campsite, with reasonably cut grass, surrounded by hedges and mature trees. It also offers direct access to woodlands where children and dogs can safely run and explore.

You are situated in the centre of the picturesque South Hams with its numerous beaches and coves, miles of coastal walks and award-winning beaches including Bigbur –on-Sea, where you will find yourself at Burgh Island - the famous film location for Poirot, and a favourite retreat of Agatha Christie.

Dartmoor National Park is a short distance away, too, and here you can find the many designated footpaths that can give the walker days of enjoyment (even in the rain!). For the golfer, the Wrangaton 18-hole course is close by, and after your game the inviting clubhouse offers excellent bar snacks and restaurant service.

Mount Edgecumbe Country Park is where Sir Richard Edgecumbe of Cotehele built a new home in his deer park in 1547. Miraculously, the walls of his red stone Tudor house survived a direct hit by bombs in 1941 and it was restored by the Earl of Edgecumbe between 1958-64. It is now beautifully furnished with family possessions, including many paintings by Sir Joshua Reynolds and 18th century Chinese and local Plymouth porcelain.

For something fishier, the children (and parents) will find the National Marine Aquarium fascinating. On show is a giant sand mermaid and sea monster, many ‘freaky fish’ such as cowfishs, frogfish, mandarin fish, morays and garden eels to name a few, and you can join in the underwater treasure hunt for a chance to jet off for a diving adventure in the Red Sea.

On a wet day, why not visit the Lee Mill shopping centre? Here you can obtain everything from local wines and liqueurs, to golf equipment and wool and cashmere products from Scotland. Perfect for buying those souvenirs to remind you of your holiday, or as early Xmas gifts.
