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.

modbury absolute fab site.

Stayed here over the August bank holiday. what a spotless fab site. great Dog walking facilities. It was our first visit to this site but we will be making it a regular. Chris and Tina are the most perfect hosts and nothing is too much trouble for them. The pitch sizes are very generous. we had such a relaxing weekend here with our dogs and look forward to coming again. Thank you

Wonderful Wardens and Beautiful Site

Firstly, I must say that the warm and friendly greeting that we received from Tina and Chris (the wardens) on arrival was like no other we have ever experienced before on a Caravan club site! In fact sometimes and sadly more often than not, you are lucky if they can crack a smile and wish you a pleasant stay... Tina and Chris on the other hand are the most welcoming and delightful people you could hope to be greeted by at the start of your holiday... They made all of us including our two children feel very comfortable and nothing was to much trouble! The site itself is idyllic, if you are looking for 'peace and tranquillity', then please look no further. The pitches are spacious and clean, the facilities are spotless, they keep the site tiptop, neat and tidy and there are plenty of pitches to choose from. We have just returned from a 3 night stay over this August Bank Holiday weekend, not only were we spoilt by the weather (it was glorious) we were almost overwhelmed by the site and all it had to offer... There is a large field for the children to play in, a children's play area with climbing frame and swing and plenty of opportunity to ride a bike or hop on a scooter in a very safe environment. If you are a dog owner we also noted a lovely dog walk to keep them exercised and happy too! We cancelled our membership this year after 14 loyal years, mainly due to several bad experiences with miserable, moody, unfriendly wardens who seemed to get a kick out of spoiling our visit in some way! Sadly that was all from our local site in Paignton and over the course of several years... We only decided to re join last minute due to the opportunity arising for a short break away with our children and my parents with their caravan. We are so glad that we did because these wardens fondly known as 'ChrisTina'' have restored our faith in the club and what it has to offer... Thanks so much for a wonderful stay, The Gibson's X

Brilliant for dogs!

I have only stayed in one other site so have little to compare to. However, we’ve just returned from 10 days here as a family with 2 young children and a dog. This site has a brilliant field designated for dogs so they can be let off the lead. The field is enormous and has shrubbery all the way round the edge making for an enthusiastic run a couple of times a day. Next to the dog field is another great field designated for those who want to play ball games etc (dogs can’t enter). It’s a really pretty field with only a section cut to grass. There is a small playground which the children enjoyed. We had 2 sets of wardens during our stay & all 4 were very friendly & helpful. The release wardens were particularly great as they had to assist us with an incident & were so brilliant about it all. The California Inn is a short drive away (under 5 minutes) & we had a fantastic £10 lunch (also dog friendly). We also went to The Ship Inn in Ugborough which had phenomenal food but it’s not cheap so it’s definitely for a treat. The garage opposite the California Inn includes a great supply of gluten free products and cook meals. The only thing I’ve marked down slightly is the facilities and that’s only because the shower block at the only other site I’ve stayed at was so brilliant. This one is immaculately clean and perfectly fine, but the cubicles are quite small for changing and the pressure & temperature fluctuated a little. A really minor point. Overall it’s a lovely site & it was so quiet - although the little area we were in had about 12 pitches & despite being the middle of the summer holidays we averaged about 4 being used over the 10 days so I’m not sure if that was usual or not. Would definitely recommend but especially for those with dogs.

Quiet site in summer holidays - Need to update toilets though

Quiet site in summer holidays - Need to update toilets though. This is a lovely site with mostly seasonal pitches so makes it very quiet. We stayed for 8 nights in August school holidays. Lovely, friendly feel & my children soon made friends with others on site. The toilet block is very disappointing though. It is clean & the wardens do a good job, but it is in desperate need of a re-furb. There were lots of mini fleas & spiders around in the corners & edges. We have always stayed on club sites & toilet blocks are always amazing, hence why I was disappointed this time. Park for children is great & top play field ideal for flying kites!
