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.

Mid September getaway

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Just coming to the end of our stay spent 9 days onsite. We come here a few times a year. The existing wardens that have been here for a few years are so friendly and the new wardens and the new assistant manager are also very friendly such a difference to our last experience back in july when there were some unfriendly ones. Site is immaculate can’t understand some of the reviews saying the toilets need updating apart from maybe a lick of paint on the outside we find them very clean and far from needing updating. Perfect location to visit Devon bus stop very handy right outside front entrance. We will keep returning outside of school holidays but on a personal level we will really miss the long serving wardens if they move on they make the holiday from the point of arrival. More hard standings would benefit if planning allows it. Fantastic stay back in December for some winter sun.

September stay

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Am in agreement with other reviews re locating an available pitch. We were lucky found an accessible pitch No 47 which was perfect for our lengthy outfit. Facilities were good though didn't try bar or restaurant. The only downside for us was the closure of the swimming pool the day after we arrived w/b 11 Sept. Was told it was end of season, a real shame as the weather was glorious. Wardens were very friendly and worked very hard emptying bins and keeping the site spotless. Great walk to the beach, but a bit of a climb back! Bus stop outside site was useful. Brilliant stay, have already booked again

Wacky Races

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
Although we couldn’t complain about the facilities or location the pitch locating scenario leaves a lot to be desired. With passes issued when you have pitched the wardens are aware at any one time what pitches are available. Now I’m not expecting them to mark up each map but surely when only half a dozen actually empty it would be possible. We had a case of an outfit literally overtaking us as he approached from the left. Crazy situation. Four of us doing loops looking for pitches up into the cup de sacs. This could be managed better. Other than that all great. Decent pool too.

Never again.

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
This is the most un camc - like site that we've stayed at..The young female was miserable and unfriendly at the desk.All other staff were pleasant.Driving around the rediculously narrow roads along with lots of other units trying to find a vacant pitch was a nightmare.Dead ends,of which there are lots,are marked,but it is so easy to accidentally enter one when there is a line of units behind you. Pitches vary,but lots are sloping.We finally found a sloping pitch free which we took in desperation.The hedge had been freshly trimmed and it comprised partly of Blackthorn or similar.Pieces of this were scattered around the pitch and I got a 30mm piece through my flip plop and into my foot.Then the back of the caravan was so far off the ground that we had to put 7" of packing under the fully lowered steadies. Things did get better.The site has a nice atmosphere.The wardens were pleasant and work hard.The pool and bar are pleasant and drinks are reasonable. The toilet block is tired but serviceable..just.There were a few piles of dog cr*p on the road and grass.......nobodies fault but the selfish owners. Overall ,after the arrival,we enjoyed our week,but will never return whilst all these issues remain.

Summer get away

Hillhead Caravan Club Site
We were really looking forward to visiting this site after hearing great things about the site and the facilities on offer. We arrived on Bank Holiday Monday during our booked arrival time and got on the site straight away. We were given an explanation about the directions to take and the fact we may need to get out of the car to find a pitch as the site has a few pitches that are situated on dead ends. After driving around twice and finding nothing, we stopped and asked a warden who also told us to drive around - so not really very helpful. Like others have said in their reviews, it would be better to be allocated a pitch due to the size of van, rather than pot luck when you arrive and are already tired after the journey. We finally found a pitch with awning but it was not big enough to fit the car in the designated spot but we managed to put it across the awning. It was tight but we got on. Sadly, due to current restrictions there wasn’t any entertainment but the bar, pool etc were open. The site is ideal if you want to go and see Devon , which we did. There is a nice dog walk area and of course the stunning views. We would go back but would hope to see improvements.
