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.

poor access to average site

as per many other reviews I would strongly suggest that unless you are a very confident driver and don't worry too much about your caravan then a drive from the main road to the site is a perilous journey. The lanes with passing places are regularly used by large articulated lorries. Leaving the site on a Sunday morning was very busy with many cars showing little regard to other road users. I know this is out of control of the site but be warned. Road access is poor. Site ok when you get there.

Site Access

Unfortunately the access to/from this site from the A38 is exceptionally stressful. I departed the site at about 10am and expected to be able to get to the A38 without too much traffic approaching from the other direction. This was not the case. The volume of traffic was extremely high. This included delivery vans, cars and then a refuse collection lorry appeared over the brow of a hill on a bend at the narrowest part of the road taking up three quarters of the width of the road. No passing places were available and due to volume of traffic reversing was not an option. The occupants of the refuse lorry remained glued to their seats. My only option was to unhitch the caravan and manually manouvre the caravan to enable the lorry to move on. Fortunately one other driver did assist but as a solo traveller this can be very challenging as the use of mirrors is impossible. There are no passing places with the exception of field entrances and entrances to other properties. None are long enough for car and caravan. For this reason alone I would not use this site again.

Great Short Stay

We've just had four nights at Modbury 16th - 20th August 2020. We did enjoy our time there and we thought the Caravan Club had been clever in using Milton wrist bands to manage people using the toilet facilities. We found the Club site to generally be clean and helpful. We only used the toilet block once in the morning and evening. We visited Bigbury on Sea and Burgh Island, Dartmouth and Totnes. Modbury is a great site to visit many locations but the final road there can be extremely narrow in places especially when towing! Looking forward to our next adventure! :)

Disappointing

I have just returned from my first visit to Devon. I was disappointed, although contrary to above comments, I found the access road ok. I only have a camper van and can see that larger motorhomes and caravans may have problems. The staff at the site are lovely and working under extreme pressure at the moment. I do feel that the pitches should really be allocated, as I had to drive around a very busy site to find a relevant pitch. There were far too many people on site, I was expecting fewer numbers and I thought that the band system just didn't work, as soon as the cleaning was done, the bands went missing. Also, with those numbers on the site, I feel the facilities should be cleaned more than once a day. I did note however, that some of the visitors did not seem to worry about how they left the facilities for other users, with regards to hygiene. The signage regarding queuing and how to use the facilities was not adequate, people were queuing inside the shower block which is not the way at the moment, this caused confusion inside and too many people too close together. I did not feel entirely safe from covid whilst on this site. The shower block also requires an update fairly quickly, there were toilet seat lids on only some of the toilets and the tiling and grouting all round needs either replacing or thoroughly cleaning. Yes, it is a busy site and times are very difficult, but I feel these are issues that need addressing. I am afraid it is a non return for me.

Not Again!

We, my wife and I, stayed at Modbury for 2 weeks in late July/early August. The site was very well kept and keeping in mind the Virus restrictions so were the facilities The only problems we found were the very narrow roads of that area and with a Caravan on tow by the time we got to the site my wife was a nervous wreck!! When we had to go shopping it took the best part of a day, leaving at 11am and getting back at about 2pm. We have vowed not to go to Modbury site again and in fact to stay away from Devon in future. As I said earlier the Modbury site is very good and so are the staff but the local road system stinks.
