Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site is a pleasantly quiet, green and spacious holiday getaway, with serene pastoral views. The beautifully kept caravan park is just a short walk away from the bustling town of Totnes, for a wide choice of local pubs and restaurants. Totnes has been a significant port for many centuries and is perfect for a leisurely stroll along the banks of its busy river while taking in the historic atmosphere. Further up the hill you will reach a place called The Narrows, the oldest part of the town and a must-see sight for visitors to the area.

While staying at Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site, you are within easy reach of the historic Guildhall and museum. The picturesque village of Dartington is only a short stroll away, and with beautiful gardens, outdoor theatre and a cinema, Dartington Hall is well worth a visit. The Tuesday Pannier market is a convenient location for a spot of shopping - a popular event with locals and tourists alike, the stallholders dress in traditional Elizabethan costume and sell a vast range of fresh local produce. Boat trips to the pretty harbour town of Dartmouth leave from the dock just across the road from Steamer Quay. The caravan site promises a memorable break and the opportunity to absorb the traditional English life.

All pitches at this site are economy, with no Electric Hook Up.

A lovely site but ...

4 out of 5

Really enjoyed this site because of its proximity to Totnes and trips on the river. There also seem to be plenty of walks to do, unfortunately we didn't have time for these but the round robin trip by boat, steam train and bus was excellent. No electric was not a problem and we coped with the antiquated showers and the free 'scald' at the end as you turned them off! However there are only two so be prepared to queue. Washing up facilities are also tight. The lack of hard standing is the real issue. Although the book says there aren't any three have been set up on the tarmac, separated by flower tubs so they're non-awning pitches. They're not the best but I was worried about being on the grass in rather wet weather even in July, some pitches had been moved because it was wet and several had ruts. I understand from previous reviews that the club can't invest because of a short lease but it does seem extremely short sighted of the council. A lot of people appeared to be going out to eat in the evening so I'm surprised the council is prepared to lose this income. We were also surprised to hear that the club is not allowed to pull people of pitches if they get stuck in the mud. Why?? Something is going to have to give here and it would be a shame to lose this site. How about plastic matting the grass grows through instead of gravel? Wardens and cleanliness fantastic as usual  PS on every site we've been to this year we've been reminded of the pitching rules. I've no problem with this as it is for safety reasons and it preserves everyone's privacy. Why is it then that on nearly every site, including this one people are ignoring the rule and encroaching on others space?

Another lovely holiday in Totnes

5 out of 5

Just come back from another great holiday at Steamer Quay. As always the site was well kept and toilet block immaculate as usual. This years wardens have done a wonderful job being most welcoming and helpful. Would like to comment on lovely floral arrangements and pick your own herbs. Close to quirky town with plenty of pubs and shops to explore. No electric. No problem. Back to proper caravaning. Will be back again next year.

Wonderfull Totnes

5 out of 5

Peacefull site in a great location . on the edge of Totnes. Our third visit to this site. Clean tidy and pleasant with friendly helpfull wardens . We just can't understand why the local council doesn't give the club a longer lease than one year at the time for this site? If they did this the caravan club could modernise the site and do it up a bit, and open it all year round! Maybe the local community and the club should start a petition ? It would do the local economy the world of good. Maybe the local councilers are not very business like??
