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 site; great views

5 out of 5

We would endorse all the positive points mentioned on here; a really peaceful site with views over Plymouth Sound. The wardens couldn't have been more friendly and helpful, and keep the site in very good order. On the edge of the small village, there is a pub doing food, a small shop, and even a bike shop next door to it!  Good walks from the site in all directions, across fields and down to the coast, all with fabulous cliff views. A good circular takes in Wembury with its delightful church and beach cafe, Heybrook Bay (another good pub), and back over the fields from along the cliffs. There is also loads to do in Plymouth. Would recommend it to anyone who can manage without a site loo etc. National Trust properties are well represented if you are a member, the closest being Saltram only a few miles away. If you are a cyclist this is also pa good place to park to ride the excellent Pym Valley Trail/National Cycle Route 27, which is just down the hill from the main car park. One or two climbs between there and Tavistock and back, but well worth the effort.

Improvements to do

4 out of 5

We have stayed several times over the years at this site and it is a wonderful location and we like it very much. However we have just come back from a slightly damp English weekend and have the following comments. The catch on the gate into the dog walk has become extremely difficult to open and needs loosening up. The grass pathways cut into the dog walk were not cut short enough and made for difficult walking. The other problem on this site is that Motor homes are pitched at the top of the site on a flat area but when it rains this section holds water and its easy to get wheel spin and of course damages the grass and upsets the wardens. It's about time a few gravel hard standings were placed here instead to help alleviate the problem. Apart from those few points it is a lovely site and one we shall certainly return to.

Lovely site with great views over sea. Wardens very welcoming and helpful. Access route could be quite complex at busy times of the year as road narrow, relying on passing places. As handbook suggests, do not follow Sat Nav!

    Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not SatNav, due to alternative routes being unsuitable for towing. Leave the A38 via the slip road at Marsh Mills flyover and at the roundabout turn left onto the A374 (signposted Plymouth City Centre, Kingsbridge), follow signs A379, Kingsbridge. Cross the Laira Bridge and in about 2.25 miles turn right at fourth roundabout opposite Elburton Hotel into Springfield Road. At the first set of traffic lights turn left. Continue on uphill until reaching the garage slightly ahead of you. Turn right in front of the garage into Staddiscombe Road. Upon reaching the Staddy Function Centre, turn left at the T junction. Continue on this road through the narrow section passing the sign for Wembury on your left. Take the next turning on the right onto Renney Road signposted Down Thomas. Immediately after the speed hump indicating the 20mph sign turn right into Bovisand Lane (narrow entrance). After passing the CL the site is on the right hand side of the bend in the road. Note: drive with caution along last 1 mile to site, as the road is narrow and winding but has passing bays.
