Why stay here ...

Modbury Club Site is situated within easy distance to the ancient village of Modbury. Nestled cosily between the moors and the sea, it is the perfect base from which to explore the charming surrounds of South Devon. The caravan site offers you the pleasant choice between the quiet and solitude of beautiful Dartmoor with its tumbling streams, historic landscapes and lush views or the many small villages that make up the pleasantly rural South Hams. 

There are many charming sandy coves placed conveniently close to the caravan site and the Coastal Path which follows the South Western peninsula from Dorset right the way around to Somerset offers ideal walks for you to explore at your leisure. Whatever your mood, Modbury Club Site offers you an absorbing break. Should you feel the urge for a shopping spree, Plymouth is just a short journey away and includes a wealth of restaurants and pubs to choose from.

Spent over an hour gridlocked on the narrow lane just before the site,

Lovely site and staff, old fashioned shower block that is looking dated but adds to the charm, moved pitch due to farmer on other side of the hedge using tractor in the early hours. Biggest issue was the road just before the site, have travelled to this site before a number of times and have been lucky not to meet much coming in the other direction but this time spent over an hour stuck in a jam on this short stretch as 2 lorries had become wedged.Eventually had to back the car and caravan back down the lane with all the traffic behind having to reverse till I could get to a passing place wide enough for the very large and wide lorries coming the other way to pass and then it was very tight. Bear this in mind when going to this site,be prepared to have to reverse with your caravan !

Quiet peaceful site

First time for us, at Modbury, like some of the other reviews the road in, is narrow and could be a issue, if your were to meet a HGV. First impressions, were the grounds were well looked after, and we received a warm welcome, from the warden. The pitch we chose, was a nice sheltered pitch, which was just as well as it got very, windy during our stay. What let the site down, was the toilet block, which the wardens kept clean, but were very dated, and not up to the Clubs usual standard. For this reason, I don’t think we would use the site again, we expect something a little better for our money. It was a very peaceful site, with no road noise, but that is not enough for us to return.

Very well kept Site with a wonderful dog exercise field.

It was a pleasure to stay at Modbury with our four legged family member who had a wonderful time on the beautifully maintained and extensive dog exercise field. It is ideal for exercising an active dog playing fetch with a ball, and also for socialising with other dogs and having a good game of chase(the dogs that is!) This is very important to us as it provides a safe environment where dogs can have fun off the lead without the worry of long un-mowed grass and undergrowth, which hide the threat to a dog's health from ticks, fleas, grass seeds (these get into eyes, ear and paws) but most dangerous of all provides a hiding place for adders. Full marks to Modbury Wardens for providing this superb area. These days we always contact Club Sites direct to make sure that the on site dog walk is a good field which is properly mowed before we book. We do not go to sites with these dreadful fields with long grass and weeds etc with a few "pathways" cut out. These get worn and muddy and enables the more anti social to leave their dog's mess behind. We know there are other dog owning Club members who also share these views.

Great site for dogs.....

Booked this site as a 'stop over' on our way up from Cornwall and will return! Very friendly and helpful wardens, particularly as we had to get the AA out. Excellent spacious dog walk on site. Facilities were a bit dated but clean and everything worked.

well run site, handy for ferry

We booked this site for just one night as it is a short drive from the Plymouth ferry port. We were surprised and delighted to be greeted by Chris and Tina, who do everything they can to make your stay a happy one. Their common sense approach at Start Bay club site restored our faith in the club. The facilities are somewhat dated (it's been years since I last saw a pink soap dish in the shower cubicle) but are extremely clean. A car is a necessity if you want to get out and about as the site is in the middle of nowhere. However, if all you want is relaxation, it's a haven of tranquility.
