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.

ice site with great facilities

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
We stayed with our campervan for a week in September 2021. The site is very clean, pretty quiet where we were pitched and the facilities were immaculate. As it's a large site it has two fully serviced facility blocks. There is a pool but it was closed when we got there, which was shame as we would have enjoyed that given the glorious weather. The bar and restaurant were an added bonus and served good quality "pub" food at reasonable prices. There was also evening entertainment a couple of nights when we were there. There is a bus service right outside the site although we walked. Walking to Dartmouth or along the coastal path back to Brixham is entirely doable but is not for the faint hearted or unfit. The hills are large and come up on you often, especially along the coastal path. Walking back from Brixham is one, long, continuous uphill slog. But properly equipped and provisioned the walks were excellent. The only down side is that some of the pitches are quite small and packed in at odd angles and in cul de sacs. To get our T6 camper in and out of our pitch required a multi-point turn including driving and reversing against the one way system. We managed but bigger rigs might struggle depending on what was available. The local intel seems to be arrive early, and if you don't get your favoured pitch the first night, move the next morning as people leave.

Fabulous sea views, with early morning peace, beautiful sunrises and twinkling ships’ lights on the horizon

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
This site has every facility, exactly where you need it, in a peaceful and beautiful setting on the top of the hill. Early mornings offer some fabulous sunrises, preceded by the twinkling lights of passing ships on the horizon, as you walk to the conveniently located shower block. I will definitely revisit.

Lovely site and wonderful wardens

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Very big thank you to Margaret for her help and kindness after a terrible tyre blowout on the M5 in our large motorhome 18 miles from the site...she had a pitch ready for us as we arrived later than expected. We were shaken up and she was so helpful. We had a peaceful couple of days ...mainly getting our tyre done ...but had a meal at the restaurant which was very nice. Lovely site and very peaceful in term time. Spotless facilities and clean site. Shame the pool was closed as we had a very sunny and warm few days. But appreciate they struggle for life guards. Thank you again for being so kind.

Large site, Busy, Usual good standards

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Only stayed overnight. Site almost full and only pitch available was grass - but weather had been dry so OK and in a sunny spot. Washing facilities were the usual block which was clean with lots of toilets etc. Large site and we didn't get to see it all. Was quiet though. We did need chocks. Visited Dartmouth which is a nice place but not that much to look at within walking distance. Luckily it was lovely weather and it's nice to watch the people go by. Got the ferry across the Dart which was cheap and efficient. Nice site. Would visit again if in the area.

Great place!

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Our first time on a south coast site and we were spoilt! Easy walking distance of Kingswear, Dartmouth, Brixham and Paignton (for those that like a long coastal walk!) the site also has a regular bus service to all for those not willing to walk or if the weather turns bad. We were also blessed with Glrious weather so late in September! We will definitely be returning in our MoHo! Having a pub, restaurant, shop, onsite definitely made a difference! Staff were very friendly and helpful in finding empty pitches to try and save us time driving round to find one!
