Why stay here ...

Set in 22 acres of Devon countryside and close to the beach, Hillhead Club Campsite 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 shop, bar, restaurant and takeaway service for all the conveniences you could want. Hillhead Club Campsite 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.

 

Please Note: There is no longer a games room on our site.

Relaxing break

Hillhead Club Campsite
Just come home from a weeks stay. Had a grass pitch for a change really nice lots of choice. Site half full. I like the new fencing and removal of some older hedges to give the site a more open feel just hope they don’t remove to many. We are regulars to this site and this was our first visit this year and we were really happy to see the wardens red motorhome still there fred & his lovely wife make Hillhead what it is they are so friendly from the point of arrival it wouldn’t be the same without all their hard work and passion for this site may it last a long time. We walked the entire site and didn’t even see one piece of rubbish absolutely immaculate. Will be returning next month.

Lesson Learnt - But Lovely Site

Hillhead Club Campsite
Brilliant site. We really enjoyed our stay here in early May 2022. The one thing we might do differently next time is NOT to book a Serviced Pitch. We have a long twin axle van and the choice of serviced pitches big enough for us was a little limited whilst there were a good number of very large and very private standard pitches with amazing views that would have been lovely. Nonetheless a great site. We'll be back.

Great Stay

Hillhead Club Campsite

This was our first visit to this site and it didn't disappoint. The staff were welcoming, friendly and extremely helpful. We had a problem with our hook-up and they went out of their way to help us. Facilities were spotlessly clean. We used the bar, but didn't eat there. The pool looked good, but it was closed as off season. The play area for children looked great, but we didn't use it. Pitches are nicely laid out, some different shapes to others, but plenty to suit all.  Perfect location for the bus stop (at the site entrance) to Paington or Kingswear (for Dartmouth). We will definitely go back, as there's still plenty more to explore in the area.

Disappointed

Hillhead Club Campsite
We have been visiting this site for many years, around 13 now, and have to say we are very disappointed with the amount of people not following the simple rules. There were so many people allowing and encouraging their children (not particularly young children) to play football and other ball games around the caravans. Unfortunately I don't believe the wardens feel that they can confront these people. There is a massive playing field where balls games can be played safely away from the caravans and cars. We came at a quieter time of year this time around, we normally come in August but found the issue of kids playing around the caravans too much for us, so booked to come in April but it was actually no better. We have also witnessed so many dogs wondering around without leads on, one wondering across the road. I've seen dogs peeing on people's awnings and caravans. I want to point out that we are a young(ish) couple (30's) with a young daughter (and a dog) and so are not against kids playing however I do believe that it should be in the designated areas. Due to the lack of control by the wardens to ensure the rules are being followed I'm sad to say we will no longer be returning to the site.

Hillhead Club Campsite
Great first stay, excellent views, impressed by facilities and cleanliness. Some of the pitches are too narrow for a car, caravan and awning. You can't park your van in line with the marker and squeeze your car down the side. But now we know we will be back later in the year.
