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 fourth 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.

Wonderful site and welcoming wardens

Kevin was very helpful with all our questions and offered suggestions for things to do. The site is partly on a slope and some flat areas. Very well maintained with clean service areas for loo waste, water and waste disposal. The grass was well cut with no grass cuttings to get trampled into our motorhome. There aren't any loo's but that doesn't bother us as we wouldn't use them anyway. The views are stunning overlooking the Sound, although a couple of small trees could be cut/replanted to get the full effect of the view. We took Kevin's suggestion and walked to Mount Batten ferry along the coastal path. The views are beautiful but I'm not sure about Kevin's timings. He said about an hours walk but the many steps up and over the coastal path meant it took far longer. The day was sunny and gorgeous so it didn't matter at all. There is a carpark at Mount Batten where you can park for free and you could even part a small motorhome there no problem. That said I'm glad we walked. On the way back I had a dip in the sea at Bovisand beach which is lovely and soon warmed up on the steep walk back to the site. Both nights we were there were very quiet and peaceful. We couldn't have asked for more. Thank you Kevin and Anita, you both do a wonderful job.

Wonderful bank holiday weekend

We booked last minute to go to Plymouth Sound as it was one of the few sites in Devon with availability. We were not disappointed in any way. The wardens were really lively and helpful. Great walks from the site in all directions. Two good pubs within walking distance really helped on a very wet and soggy Sunday. Well stocked village shop catered for all emergencies and we could order newspapers there. Really friendly locals added to our experience. We’ll certainly return.

We can't thank the wardens enough. Wardens Kevin and Anita please stay there and never go away apart from going back to France each year for your break. See you next year and have a Merry Christmas lots of love and thank you again. Ronnie and Rosie Heydon.

I've been to a few sites in my time but this one was the best out of them all. Prices are great, nice and quiet, lovely wardens and very helpful. I would also like to highly recommend the pasties they make on site, wow!
