Plymouth Sound Caravan Club Site rests on a headland outside the town of Plymouth and offers superb views across the glorious Sound. This delightful caravan park is close to the South West Coastal Footpath for unforgettable walks, the Plym Valley Cycleway for those keen to experience some wonderful scenery by bike and many lovely beaches.

Apart from the normal restaurant and shopping choices of a busy town, the convenient distance of the caravan site to Plymouth offers the opportunity to visit its historic dockyard and take the popular warship cruise. Other attractions include the Dome on the famous Hoe for a rich and in-depth multimedia explanation of the city's history. A great getaway for the whole family, Plymouth Sound Caravan Club Site also puts children within easy reach of fun attractions such as the local ice rink and Atlantis pool at the Plymouth Pavilions, complete with shipwrecked galleon, beach and two super flumes. The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth is a fantastic attraction for all ages. Also not to be missed is the nearby historic Morwellham Quay, a lovingly reconstructed Victorian copper port, as well as Buckland Abbey, the ancient monastery once owned by Francis Drake. The site is a great option for dog owners, with a dog-friendly pub on the waterfront in Plymstock and a nearby sandy beach where dogs can be walked.

Lovely clean relaxing site

5 out of 5

Just returned from 7 day stay at this site - so clean and wardens work so hard to keep it immaculate. Lovely views over Plymouth sound, relaxing watching the passing boats, ships and occasional submarine.  Loved it definitely will be back thanks for super holiday. 

A site with a view!!!

5 out of 5

We visit this part of the West Country most summers at some time and decided to give the Plymouth Sound site a try even though we normally like to have a shower block where we are staying as we knew the location is special even though the approach road is tricky for the last couple of miles. Our visit coincided with the Plymouth Firework competition which we watched from the site and were able to see the aerial fireworks over the Staddon Heights hill. Yes, the approach is tricky for a few hundred yards, but the location when you get there is well worth it for the stunning views from the site. The wardens are so hard working and show you the available pitches when you arrive so you can maximise the view from what is available. The dog walk is good and the field alongside it for children to play looked nice. Bovisand Beach at the bottom of the lane is dog friendly and there is a cafe in the chalet park that you can get a drink from before the slightly steep walk back to the site. The National Trust run Saltram House is a short drive from the site and has lovely walks alongside the Plym estuary. We didn't eat there, but did stop for a drink at the local Mussel Inn, it looked nice but found the drinks expensive so could be hard on the pocket to visit? There are so many things to do in the area so recommend you try this site with lovely views over Plymouth Sound.

A relaxing couple of weeks

5 out of 5

Just back from two weeks at this site. Yes there are no facilities but the location and views amply make up for it. The pitches are immaculately maintained and the owners are very helpful when booking in and choosing a pitch. When I visited the site was split equally between caravans and motor homes. The latter tending to be positioned at the top of the site where the slope wasn't so steep. It's important you follow the directions provided for the final approach to the site as there are a few tight bits in the narrow lanes. But nothing to lose sleep over. Most of the locals were very accommodating for caravan drivers. It did get a bit windy some days, so my visiting nieces had great fun flying kites in the playing field next door. All in all a great site if you want a peaceful and relaxing holiday with plenty of beaches and things to do in the area. I'd visit again!
