Plymouth Sound Club Campsite 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.

Bliss

Plymouth Sound Club Campsite
I stayed at this site for 9 days whilst I was working on a music event at the football stadium. It was a lovely site to return back to after a long day. The site over looks the sea and there is a stunning beach about a 10 minute walk away. The site managers put a little reserved sign on my pitch everyday so I could return to the same spot in my campervan. The site was was very quiet and peaceful and I will return.

Just wonderful

Plymouth Sound Club Campsite
What a wonderful campsite! Beautifully located overlooking the bay and surrounded farmlands. Very spacious site with lots of wildflower sections all around. Got great suggestions for walks and places to eat from Kevin. He even was so kind and fixed the sole of my shoes! Thank you very much for a fantastic stay. Ilka and Alexander from Germany

Great site, amazingly knowledgeable wardens and amazing location

Plymouth Sound Club Campsite
Great week here and what a lovely tidy site it is. It is obviously down to the hard work of the wardens who clearly take pride in ensuring that site is well presented. The wardens are just so knowledgeable of the local area and when you speak to local people they are very well respected members of the community as well. Can't beat some of the sites to visit around, but certainly Drakes Island is a must before it gets developed and you can't see it. Site has one of the best dog walks on the entire site Circuit as well and 4 legs are very welcome everywhere. Well done Kevin and Anita

Fantastic site

Plymouth Sound Club Campsite
This is a brilliant site…..the views are spectacular, and it’s really well kept. Stayed for 6 nights. The owners were hugely helpful and informative….our tow car broke down on the M5 so we had to be out on a low loader, which then towed the caravan to the site,…..we eventually arrived just after 10pm but Kevin the owner was waiting for us to help us get settled. He helped unload the van and put us on a close pitch so that we could set up and sleep, and then we moved the next day to a pitch facing the sea. Directions to the site were perfect……..and if you’re worried about the very narrow lane just before the site, the low loader, plus towing a 26ft van got through (pretty tight but got through!) so don’t panic! The area is excellent….lovely walk from the site, and Plymouth was really interesting……especially the Mayflower exhibition and Royal William Yard. We drove to Mount Batten…..free parking…..and got the ferry to Plymouth every day, and from there saw the above. Added bonus Emirus the owl and his handler training in the field. Despite now having to get a new tow vehicle, we had a lovely holiday and recommend this site and the area.
