Why stay here ...

In the week commencing Monday 5 October we are unable to serve food in the restaurant or takeaway on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, the bar will remain open. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

From Monday 12 October the bar will be open 3pm - 9pm Tuesday - Sunday, with food served Wednesday - Sunday. There is limited seating and table service only. Takeaway will be open between 5:00pm to 8:00pm (closed on Mondays).

Please Note: The swimming pool will be closed for the remainder of 2020. We thank you in advance for your support and patience.

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 (late May), 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.

Stay at Hillhead

Just spent 2 weeks at Hillhead. The site is in a convenient position for visiting several places and attractions, including Coleton Fishacre, Greenway, Berry Head, SW coast path, Brixham and especially Dartmouth. We have mixed views of the site itself. It was extremely busy although this is not surprising given that so many people are not currently going abroad. We had a serviced pitch and felt quite hemmed in - the pitches are quite small and had no views. The bar/restaurant charged gastro pub prices, but the quality was not consistent. We were surprised at the number of outfits arriving early. We were careful not to arrive before 1pm, as stated on the CAMC website. However, we saw several arriving as early as 12pm and even 11.30am, during our stay. From the top of the site, in the play field, the views are stunning across Torbay. We spent a few hours, one day, reading and having a picnic lunch. It is very popular with people who have a bus pass and the buses stop right outside the site. We are not yet entitled to bus passes, but felt we would not be comfortable on the bus, anyway, as they tended to be very busy and a number people were not wearing face coverings.

Brixham and dartmouth not to be missed

we stayed here as part of our current tour. The site gave great access to the local attractions and the buses were easy to access and regular. The site facilities were excellent and spotlessly clean. Our first impression was that the pitch was poor due to it being located at the end of a cul de sac next to the recycling and water-point. This turned out not to be the case as the pitch had full sun long into the evening and the water-point/recycling area was not used that much. The staff were always on hand and friendly. We enjoyed days out in Brixham and Dartmouth - Paignton, not so much.

Super staff....VERY busy site

Firstly....the staff are super. Highly professional and they have a great deal to cope with at this time of restrictions and in a site of around 250 pitches .... Most campers abided by the rules but some sadly didn't. I would echo the review regarding the need to train some people to use a loo brush... and the need for some to slow down when driving on site. Access is very good for a Devon site but being outside of any major town could be problematic to those without transport....we did see campers standing waiting for already full buses! Walking the route to the Mansands Beach is VERY tricky unless fully fit and excellent walking footwear.... That said there are NT car parks nearer the beach and fabulous coastal path. Colton Fishacre and Greenway are local NT properties that deserve a visit. Brixham was overcrowded but Dartmouth was a much better place to enjoy. Paignton was awful but Torquay much nicer especially in the evening when day visitors had left. Parking charges in towns we thought were excessive but these places need revenue.
