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.

Fab totnes

5 out of 5

We love this site for its location. Totnes has a wonderful vibe about it, very bohemian. Terrific high street we plenty going on, sit outside the Royal  Steven Stars hotel and people watch. The site its self has a very relaxed atmosphere which we like. No hard concrete just love grass pitches and all the better for being non electric. Very friendly wardens who are always helpful. Yes the loos are a little dated by plenty of hot water and always very clean. We have been going to this site for many years, but don't  tell everyone or they will all want to come!!

Terrific Totnes

Location, location, location. This site could not be better placed. The site is well cared for by super wardens Ray and Fiona. On entry you are hit by Fiona's wonderful hanging baskets, which saw me reaching for my camera. This being a council owned facility the toilet blocks are more council car park than Caravan Club...however they were immaculately clean - all credit to the site staff. The site looks great as pitches are laid out less formally. All grass, though the club seem to have relented and allowed pitching on what would ordinarily be the visitors car park.  Of course you can't "plug in" here. I think that is one of the attractions of the site, as you can put your solar panel and dual batteries to good use. Now did I mention location? The site is yards from Steamer Quay where you can watch the Dart lap in and out with the tides, cruise to Dartmouth it is gorgeous. Totnes is a brilliant place, quintessentially English, it has a main street brimming with independent shops, not a McDonalds or Costa in sight. There is also the historic Guildhall, Castle and a fab market on Tuesdays and Saturdays (pls check).  On Thursday evening Totness band played outside reception - they were wonderful and it was enjoyed by lots of us..others missed out. Well done for laying that on. Leave the car at home...cycle route 28, superb riverside walks, loads of buses, shops (inc huge supermarket) are right on the doorstep oh and don't forget the Steamer. All means you'll not be stuck. So now I feel a bit mean with my marks? Getting a good nights sleep was tough, due to seagulls making an amazing noise for 19 hours a  day...4am and they must be really hungry. But would it stop me returning.....absolutely not...but pack some ear defenders!

We stayed overnight on a Monday.  Wardens were very helpful.  Loo block very old fashioned but wardens kept them as clean as they could - it just needs a makeover but is possibly not allowed if this is Council land!  Very noisy overnight due to either sailing club or just hooligans on the quay side! Again a rather loud dawn chorus from the seagulls so not much sleep in between.  However great meal at the Dartmouth Arms, High Street has some wonderful shops all within walking distance, with a walk along the river a must.  No problems with the lack of electricity but this site does not cater well for motorhomes, the tap is not easy to access and there is no MH waste disposal point so remember to take a bucket & a watering can!
