Why stay here ...

Plymouth Sound Club Site rests on a headland outside the town of Plymouth and offers superb views across the glorious Sound. This delightful caravan park is close to the South West Coastal Footpath for unforgettable walks, the Plym Valley Cycleway for those keen to experience some wonderful scenery by bike and many lovely beaches. The site is a great option for dog owners; nearby you'll find a dog-friendly pub and a sandy beach, with a large dog walk on site.

Apart from the varied restaurant and shopping choices offered by the city, the convenient distance of the caravan site to Plymouth offers the opportunity to visit its historic dockyard and take to the water on a scenic harbour cruise. The National Marine Aquarium in Plymouth is a fantastic attraction for all ages. Also not to be missed is the nearby historic Morwellham Quay, a lovingly reconstructed Victorian copper port, as well as Buckland Abbey, the ancient monastery once owned by Francis Drake. Nearby National Trust property Saltram is also a great day out, with gardens offering a beautiful display during the summer months. A short drive from site you can explore the wild landscapes of Dartmoor, or discover the quaint fishing villages and dramatic coast of the South Hams area.

Please note: this site does not have a toilet block.

Cross the Laira Bridge and in about 2.25 miles turn right at the fourth roundabout opposite Elburton Hotel into Springfield Road. At the first set of traffic lights turn left.

Lovely peaceful site

Plymouth Sound Caravan Club Site
This is a lovely peaceful site with a fantastic view. The wardens where helpful and friendly. The site was clean and tidy. There is a little local shop and a Public House not far away. You will need ramps for some of the pitches. We met some lovely people here. Great site, I would recommend it.

Great spot

Plymouth Sound Caravan Club Site
Our third or fourth visit, this site always pleases. The view across the Sound is brilliant as are the great sunsets. The two nearest pubs are good and the Coast Path walks well worth doing. As motorhome users who like to live their vehicle on site the once a day bus to Plymouth is useful with a more frequent service from Staddiscombe 1-2 miles away. As is usual for CAMC sites, the staff are helpful and friendly - we really don't understand the comment of the previous reviewer.

Lovely site - pity about the staff

Plymouth Sound Caravan Club Site
First club site I've been to where the staff generally didn't seem to care and gave the impression they would be a lot happier without guests. The site itself was lovely, clean and tidy. The pitch was in great condition and the views were wonderful

Worth knowing about

Plymouth Sound Caravan Club Site
We are glad we found this site. Lovely quiet location with views over Plymouth Sound. It is a no facilities site which we like & wish the Caravan & Motorhome Club had more of as we prefer to use our own on board facilities. The site was full suggesting that we are not alone in that view. The warden was great, very pleasant & well organised & coping with the challenges bought about by a period of heavy rain.
