Why stay here ...

Set in 22 acres of Devon countryside and close to the beach, Hillhead Club Site offers some of the finest facilities in the network. As well as this, the caravan site is set in a fantastic location with a large number of pitches offering stunning views of the sea and surrounding coastlines. There is plenty of entertainment for both the young and old with an outdoor heated swimming pool and children's pool, playground, play area and an indoor complex housing a games room, shop, bar, restaurant and takeaway service for all the conveniences you could want. Hillhead Club Site also hosts a varied selection of evening entertainment and themed events, especially during peak season.

For those wanting to explore further afield there are miles of sandy beaches, an 18-hole golf course, pitch and putt, tennis, fishing, sailing, steam railway trips and a zoo, all within easy reach. If you fancy a spot of shopping, the busy town of Brixham is less than two miles away, Paignton and Torquay are nearby and the ferry across to the pretty harbour of Dartmouth is only a 5 minute drive from the site. For walkers, a lovely stroll along the cliffs takes you to down to sandy beach at Broadsands.

The site received a fantastic new playground as well as improvements to the pavements around the covered courtyard area near the entertainment complex as part of a recent refurbishment.

Great stay

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Had another great week due to the location we visit this site quite often. Great weather. We found the wardens this year less than friendly.

Great stay again, but some issues need attending to.

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Just had another great stay at Hillhead, made admittedly by the great weather. We had a great grass no awning pitch, which overlooked the Bay, which was wonderful, though on a slope, but worth it for the views. We had visited Hillhead many times, so we knew of our first, second choice pitches etc., if they were available. So when driving around, we looked out for them. However, I do agree with other comments on here of people we have witnessed (non driver) racing off to claim a pitch, before others before them in the queue were still checking in. And of course, plenty do get to Hillhead before the permitable entry time - and are still allowed to enter the site & claim their pitch - not fair. Why make rules if you can't adhere to them? I think the system of the CCC is a fair system, where many of the site wardens walk you to you pitch, or tell you what number pitch is nominated to you. We use public transport while here, which we've found to be reliable & cheap, with bus stops outside the site - ideal. We didn't get chance to use the shop/bar/pool facilities on this occasion, however, they were up & running. Toilet/Shower blocks were clean. Why some people can't be bothered to use the rubber band system is mystifying. We've booked for next year already - I hope the Club can nip in the bud these issues of checking in early, which is not fair on others. Follow the procedures of the CCC perhaps??

Excellent site, chaotic check in/pitch allocation

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Personally speaking, we couldn’t fault the location of Hillhead as we travelled daily to our boat in Kingswear Marina - either driving or on the bus which stopped right outside the site entrance. The site bar was excellent with very good food and the bar staff were particularly friendly, helpful and patient, especially considering everyone wanted to see the Euros! The site was spotlessly clean and well maintained. However, as new members, this was our first visit to a large Club site and finding a pitch on such an enormous site was chaotic to say the least. We thought check in staff would at least guide us in the right direction but we were just given a site map and told to find a pitch with a white post, which would probably be ok on a smaller site, but on a site this large and complex with hedged cul de sacs, was time consuming and tricky manoeuvring a large motorhome. Also, the site was fully booked which made finding a pitch doubly difficult. This caused several ‘traffic jams’ around the site. Check in was 1pm but some people had been queuing outside all morning. Members who had visited Hillhead previously sent their co drivers off on foot to ‘save’ a pitch - obviously that’s the way to do it! Only other negative was the lack of water points for motorhomes. Just one MH service point with water tap. Other taps were available but on the roads around the site, which would’ve involved blocking access. Having said all that, we loved the position of the site, and our pitch (once we moved) and would definitely return.

Some good, some bad

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
We have just returned from an 8 night stay. Agree with others regarding the entry time onto the site. If you have a published time, please stick to it. Some people either didn't understand the band system for the toilet block or just ignored it completely. The system is there to protect us all so why people chose to ignore it is beyond belief. Dog poo found next to the play equipment, dog owners deciding to exercise their dogs on the recreation field and not in designated area. Dog poo by the bins which was then stood in. Some dog owner was too lazy to exercise his dog and let him wee and poo on the tent pitches. Club staff and food was good, staff worked very hard and were always friendly. Site staff were not the friendliest, not all but some were more than grumpy. Did we have a great holiday, yes. Would we go back, no. Would we recommend to others, yes, for the area.

Very Busy...

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Site very good. The location is ideal for Brixham, Torbay and Dartmouth. The bus stops right outside the site. Good walking area. Disappointed though that on arriving at 1.00 pm (the time as stated as being the earliest time of arrival) that on a site of 243 pitches we had a choice of about three of the poorest pitches on site. The following day we realised that people were being checked into the site at 11 am. If the club have rules on when to arrive then shouldn’t they stick to them. Whilst everyone was grabbing the best pitches i was parked in a lay-by on the A380 as I didn’t realise you could get into the site so early.
