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.

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!

Peaceful site in a good location

Enjoyed our 14 days here, touring no further than Dartmoor-Plymouth-Slapton but managed to be out and about most days with plenty to see. Roads like many in Devon a bit on the narrow side but if you take your time you soon get used to noticing and using passing points. During our second week the site was only about 60% full which was a surprise as it has a lot to commend it: - pitch sizes, location, cleanliness and so peaceful you felt you had to whisper after dark. The shower facilities are fine but now on the dated side for C&MC ones. Biggest fault for me being the lack of a fitted bench in the cubicles and they are slightly on the small side. Why is this an issue, well my knees are now 70 years old and sitting down on the low stool provided combined with the limited dry area makes it very uncomfortable getting your socks on.

What a wonderful site!

We have just returned from a 5 night stay at Modbury and will definitely return. The site is immaculately maintained by the wardens Chris and Tina whilst maintaining a very relaxed and super friendly atmosphere. Not easy to achieve! All down to the hard work put in by Chris and Tina. The dog field is fantastic— so much space. So many great beaches close by and wide choice of excellent places to eat. We thoroughly recommend the Oyster Shack near Bigbury— well worth the journey on narrow lanes or across the tidal road. On access we had no difficulty with a 5m+ van. Yes, narrow in a few places but plenty of passing places and all other drivers very courteous. Directions from the wardens are very clear.

Great site

Just spent two fantastic weeks at this great site. The wardens Chris and Tina work so hard to keep this site in pristine condition. We have only been caravaning (and towing) for just over a year, and some of the reviews talk of the narrow approach roads and may put you off. Yes it can be a bit tight in places but all drivers we came across were courteous and we did not have any problems getting in or out so if we can do it with only a years experience of towing..... go for it. The site itself is spacious, quiet and spotless. The wardens are adding many nice touches to this site and should be congratulated on their enthusiasm to make this a very successful site. It is well located for the coast with Bigbury, Salcombe not too far away and the south part of Dartmoor within easy reach. The best dog exercise area/field we have experienced and a great field that is being managed to encourage flora and fauna. We will be back no doubt.
