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.

First Class

Modbury Caravan Club Site
The highest praise for this site is reserved for the wardens. The warmest of welcomes greeted us and the help and advice offered to us throughout our stay was very much appreciated. The site and its facilities are kept in first class condition. This is a beautiful part of Devon with lots to see and do The only downside was that some of the toilet and shower facilities - although kept immaculately clean - are in need of repair/modernisation

Most helpful Managers

Modbury Caravan Club Site

Our first visit to Modbury and it won't be our last. Yes there are very narrow country roads to negotiate when you get to within about 2 miles from the site, but once you're in, the site itself is spacious, with ample room between plots. Each section is defined by hedgerows and most areas will get plenty of all day sun. The managers (Debbie & Richard) are so helpful and friendly, always offering to help no matter the time of day. They keep the toilet / shower block very clean, though yes it is somewhat outdated. The main thing for us was the number of different places to visit not that far away; Bigbury on Sea, Slapton beach, Wonwell beach (very narrow approach road) Kingsbridge, Dartmouth, Salcombe to name but a few. We extended our stay and had a lovely 12 nights there. The dog really enjoyed himself!

Great stay

Modbury Caravan Club Site
First visit to Modbury and had a great week. Lovely peaceful and well kept site. We were lucky with great weather (last week). Obviously being rural Devon the lanes can be a bit challenging at times. I don’t know what a previous review is on about regarding HGV,s on the road it goes to Modbury or down to the B road where the petrol station is. We were out everyday and passed other vehicles at times in the fairly frequent passing places but no real issues. It’s a shame to fault the site/stay over something they have no control over. You don’t go to Devon or Cornwall and expect huge roads that’s the nature of the beast. Great site will come again.

AWFUL EXPERIENCE

Modbury Caravan Club Site
If you do not mind damaging your caravan AND you are really good at reversing over long distances then this site is for you. Otherwise STAY AWAY. The long access road is single track and very busy with lots of HGV's. I had to reverse twice to give way to lorries and my wife had to direct traffic as the road was grid-locked. When I arrived I asked the staff why there was no warning in the site book, they said I should have read the reviews!!!!!!! I was advised to leave at 6am to avoid the traffic. I did, but it was still very busy and the first vehicle I met was a petrol tanker which meant a reverse of about 20 metres. I still had to plant the caravan in the hedge and fold the mirrors in. (and my van is a small one). The site facilities are inadequate for its size and there are no security gates. I also witnessed motorhomes entering the site very late and leaving very early, I presume, to avoid payment.

Wardens are fantastic

Modbury Caravan Club Site
We use this site as it's close to family and had a issue that required use to extend our stay here and cancel our next site. The wardens could have not been more helpful, they ensured we had an option to extended till we knew the full story and then, once we knew we had to stay on, altered our booking on this site and the next, which took pressure off us.
