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.

Apart from the normal restaurant and shopping choices of a busy town, the convenient distance of the caravan site to Plymouth offers the opportunity to visit its historic dockyard and take the popular warship cruise. Other attractions include the Dome on the famous Hoe for a rich and in-depth multimedia explanation of the city's history. A great getaway for the whole family, Plymouth Sound Club Site also puts children within easy reach of fun attractions such as the local ice rink and Atlantis pool at the Plymouth Pavilions, complete with shipwrecked galleon, beach and two super flumes. 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. The site is a great option for dog owners, with a dog-friendly pub on the waterfront in Plymstock and a nearby sandy beach where dogs can be walked.

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

Directions

Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, due to alternative routes being unsuitable for towing. Leave the A38 via the slip road at Marsh Mills flyover and at the roundabout turn left onto the A374 (signposted Plymouth City Centre, Kingsbridge), follow signs A379, Kingsbridge. Cross the Laira Bridge and in about 2.25 miles turn right at third roundabout opposite Elburton Hotel into Springfield Road. At the first set of traffic lights turn left. Continue on uphill and as you reach the top you will suddenly see the Co-op garage and shop on your right. Turn right in front of the Co-op onto Staddiscombe Road. Upon reaching the Staddy Function Centre, turn left at the T junction. Continue on this road through the narrow section passing the sign for Wembury on your left.

After passing the CL the site is on the right hand side of the bend in the road. Note: drive with caution along last 1 mile to site, as the road is narrow and winding but has passing bays.

Peaceful site with lots of possibilities for exploration

Recently returned from a four-day visit to this site. What a find! The hosts - Kevin and Anita - were friendly and helpful and always prepared to have a chat about the delights the area had to offer. It is a perfect area for our e-bikes with lots of coves and beaches to explore. The Mount Batten ferry (which takes bikes) made it easy to explore the city and its waterfront. By using the Cremyll ferry (again takes bikes), we spent a fabulous day cycling to Mount Edgcumbe House and Park, and then onto Kingsand, Cawsand and Rame Head. 22 miles of stunning scenery with a lovely café in a NIssan Hut at Maker. Just a pity we had to leave before we could use our e-bikes to enjoy the Plym Valley Cycle Trail, and other routes in the area. No matter - we will be back. We need to enjoy the stunning views from the site again!

Fabulous

My daughter has just moved to Plymouth for a year so I booked this site for a few nights to take her up. I absolutely loved it. The warden was so helpful, as I am quite new to caravanning and I'm not used to slopes. After a stressful few days shopping with my daughter, I found I couldn't wait to get back to the site to relax. The views are stunning. I can't fault the site. It is now our favourite site and I will be back. It is also an ideal base to visit Plymouth and the surrounding area. Thank you for a lovely break

brillant site

just returned from this site loved our stay there but all to short. I booked just to see the British fireworks championship. so just four days . I wish I had booked for longer but had to be home for appointments. the site has great views over Plymouth sound and all the surrounding area. The wardens could not be more helpful when arrive assisting you with which pitch you might have. and keeping the site very clean an tidy. nice dog walk on site. and a play area for children but no swings slides etc. so I think better for adult's. no toilet block but we use our caravan shower etc any way. there will be a next time and a longer stay. the wardens do a brilliant job thank you Dave & Sue smith

Amazing Wardens.

We were so pleased to see Wardens Kevin and Anita at the Plymouth Sound Site again and we knew we were in for a good untroubled relaxing 10 day break away at this Site. This site is a little tight on the last 1/2 mile to get to, no problem to for the more traveled caravaner and a good experience for the more novice and anxious driver.well worth the journey. You will enjoy your stay. Ronnie and Rosie.
