Why stay here ...
LOW 10% refundable deposit & FREE cancellations*
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.

DO NOT BOOK THIS SITE IF YOIU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMEWHERE TO STAY FOLLWING THE FERRY CROSSING FROM ROSCOFF TO PLYMOUTH. wE DID AND IT WAS A BIG MISTAKE! We stayed on this site in August 2023 for four nights after returning on the ferry from France. There was some confusion over the arrival times of the ferry in our booking confirmation. We checked with the Caravan Club before we travelled and were told that the times quoted for our journey to France were all in English time and the times quoted for our return were in French time. My husband checked this with the person when booking and was told that as we would be getting an hour back when docking so we would have ample time to drive to the site before 8pm and there wouldn’t be a problem. This proved not to be the case. The timing was in English time and we didn’t dock until 8pm. On arrival on the site the reception was closed and the note on the door said it was not manned after 8pm. So as to minimise disruption to other guests we proceeded to pitch on the nearest empty pitch to the reception intending to book in i the next morning. This is normal practice in Europe and Ireland. Very often they leave you instructions of where to pitch in an envelope on the door. The warden appeared 10 minutes later. He explained what had happened but he was very rude and shouted at us. He finally agreed we should continue to pitch and see him in the morning after my husband asked what he expected us to do. My husband had been really ill on the ferry and just wanted to go to bed not have an argument. The next morning we went to book in and they were both very rude to us again. It was only when my husband suggested that they refund the pitch fees and we go home that they said we could choose a pitch and tell them where we had pitched. We have never before encountered a reception like this on any other caravan site at home or abroad and it was in stark contrast to the warm welcome we received on all the sites in France. I enjoyed our stay in the area but not on this site and with hindsight wished that we had moved elsewhere the next day or gone home. We spoke to some other visitors from Germany who said they had encountered a similar experience. I feel this certainly not the reception we should be giving to our foreign visitors or indeed anyone else and is not what I would expect from the club. We pay quite a bit for membership and feel that the least we should be treated fairly and with respect.
