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.

Fantastic site with great views

5 out of 5

My wife, little boy and I stayed here in late August 15. Reasons to stay here are; awesome views, location close to Wembury, Mothercombe, Bigbury and Bantham beaches, 10 mins to Plymouth city and its a quiet peaceful site. Wardens were very helpful and accommodated us 2 nights earlier than planned. Clean and well laid out site with flat and sloping pitches which vary from slight to quite steep! Be sure to approach from A38 marsh mills (big sainsburys) exit and take to road towards Wembury, it's then an easy drive in dual carriage and wide roads until the last 3/4 mile of Devon lane which has passing places. Read the web page for details of this. We'll be back again for sure. 

Lovely site - friendly wardens

5 out of 5

We stayed at Plymouth Sound for 6 nights in mid August 2015.  A lovely site - all grass (beautifully kept) - with many of the pitches having views across to Plymouth Sound.  Beautiful flowers and flowering shrubs around the site were much appreciated. The wardens were amongst the friendliest and most helpful we have come across - and the standard in all Club sites is VERY high..!! Access can be a bit tricky when there's traffic around, but experienced drivers will have little problem. The one disadvantage of the location is that the top of the headland is high enough to be in cloud when the weather is indifferent - for 2 days we could hardly see the edge of the site through the fog. The location is convenient for the Mount Pleasant ferry across to the Barbican - every 30 minutes until 11pm.  Much better than taking the car round into town.  Both local pubs serve food - one is within walking distance. We enjoyed our first visit to the area.

Plymouth not so sound

3 out of 5

The site was extremely clean and tidy and the wardens were superb. The views are fantastic but the access is the pits. The lanes to the site are very narrow with limited passing places, the final approach is so narrow that the bushes brush both sides of the caravan at the same time. Trying to read the instructions in the dark due to ferry timetable our approach was very fraught. I have no idea how the club could improve access other than to re-locate.
