Why stay here ...

Ramslade Club Site is nestled attractively between the River Dart and the coast offering facilities that won't disappoint. The site is ideal for families, with plenty to keep everyone entertained in the local area and a playing field on site. This caravan park affords beautiful hillside views from most of its pitches and is only a mile from Stoke Gabriel, one of Devon's prettiest villages. Crabbing at low tide is an absolute tradition in the area and easy river access to the village makes this an excellent centre for exploring towns along the English Riviera such as Torquay, Paignton and Brixham.

Within the lovely South Hams area of Devon, Ramslade Club Site also offers easy access to the inland attractions of Dartmoor and the busting cities of Plymouth and Exeter. The convenient location of the caravan site will also give you the opportunity to explore a number of National Trust properties. For walking enthusiasts, the numerous coastal pathways are guaranteed to give hours of scenic pleasure. For a fun day out with the kids, don't miss the Splashdown water park at Goodrington.

Directions

Please only use these recommended directions for the final approach and not sat nav, due to alternative roads being unsuitable for towing. Leave the M5 at junction 31 and follow signs to Torquay (A380) bypassing Newton Abbot. Continue to follow signs for touring parks on Paignton Ring Road (A380). At the traffic lights turn right onto the A385 Totnes Road (signposted Totnes, Plymouth). In about 0.25 mile at the bottom of the hill turn sharp left immediately before The Parker Arms public house. The site is on the right in 1.5 miles (winding road), about 0.25 mile past a large caravan site on left (which is not a Club Site). There is a security barrier at the entrance.

Another enjoyable stay

We stayed on this site for 13 nights from 10th September and would have posted a review earlier but the CC website was down. So, this is late but still relevant. Great site which didn't disappoint. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Great to be able to rely on a site when you're staying for a longer spell - and this is certainly one! It's a large site which despite its size manages to be friendly and welcoming. The site is in two sections, mostly (but not all) grassy pitches to one side and exclusively hardstanding to the other. We drove twice around the grassy area before we even found the hardstanding half! Now here's the thing; I'd looked on google earth and saw the hardstanding area as regimented in a few long rows so absolutely not my cup of tea. Wrong! Yes, longish rows, but separated by well tended hedging so actually feels like small cosy areas! Still on a gentle slope but with flat pitches. We managed to get a corner / end of row pitch which caught the afternoon/evening sun, and it was SO quiet except for the wildlife. Perfect. The weather was wonderful so again, we were very lucky. Wardens? CC wardens are often great fun but sometimes on a larger site you can get a couple of rogue dour ones. Not here! They were ALL friendly, welcoming and helpful. They were a joy to greet on the way in/out of the site and pass the time of day. Such a bonus! As with all CC sites, facilities were immaculate and clean all the time and under Covid regulations, a testimony to the wardens who did such a great job! Access to/from the site can be challenging especially as you arrive/leave and you're towing, but so long as you drive with care, take it slowly, and DON'T try any of the shortcuts, it works. Use the A385 Paignton/Totness Road only, as per the CC recommended route. Even though this says clearly what to avoid, in our two weeks we saw a couple of white knuckled arrivals who'd ignored the CC route in favour of the SatNav and were highly stressed as a result! Stoke Gabriel village is lovely and well worth a visit. Ideally walk because it has narrow roads and challenging parking, but we drove on three occasions because of a foot condition which sadly prevented me from walking anywhere. Parking is £5 at the bottom of the hill by the Mill Pool so is expensive if you stay for 10 minutes but worth it if you visit the River Shack where the food is good and they managed Covid and customers beautifully! Hope this helps you decide if Ramslade is the site for you. Other than the occasional nutter on the Stoke Gabriel road, nothing much to complain about!

A site that exceeded our expectations

We have a motorhome and we were a little concerned about the access and getting around as we don't tow a car and love walking. The access to the site presented no problems. Whilst there were a lot of bends in the road and it was narrow in places there were plenty of passing places and never so narrow that we had to slow down to negotiate them. We were delighted to discover a lot of walks to the extent that we have at least three we will try when we return. We would advise buying an OS map which we found really helpful. The two walks we discovered into Saint Gabriel were really enjoyable. We fell in love with Saint Gabriel and found the people there both helpful and friendly. We also discovered there is a walk of about 3 miles into Totnes that avoids the road for 2+ of those miles. We will certainly return and if you are like us in that you enjoy walking it is absolutely A1!!

Great Site Wardens

We have just returned from Ramslade where I managed to damage my off side mover by not paying sufficient attention! I was blocking the storage compound access so phoned the sight office. Within a few minutes Ray had arrived assessed the problem and got tools to, was on the ground and slackened of the mover allowing the wheel to rotate safely. I have visited this site regularly for many years and always found the wardens friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, this however was the first time I have needed their help urgently and I must say I can't thank Ray too highly for his response and invaluable help. We will be back:)

Excellent site, but Motorhomers need transport

An excellently maintained site. We chose a hardstanding pitch for our 4.5T motorhome. Lovely pitch, with plenty of space to neighbours, which left us feeling Covid secure and some privacy, yet still benefitting from interaction with other guests and the wardens, who with the exception of one individual were friendly and helpful. We only used the drinking water and waste facilities, preferring to use our own, but from everything we heard the shower facilities were well maintained, clean and people adhered to social distancing guidelines. The site itself is very nice, but as others have highlighted, the access lane is challenging in places. Without our tow-car we would have been limited for places to visit, as the site is not within easy walking distance of much. That's okay for a day or two, but I wouldn't fancy using the motorhome to get out and about, particularly repeatedly navigating up and down the narrow access lane! Having said this, the site is in a great location to visit some wonderful places if you have transport. Only other point that might help others is that some of the trees are large and well established, which whilst they look great and contribute to the rural feel of the site, do get in the way of TV signal on some pitches. Would we choose Ramslade again - definitely!!

Excellent site

The approach road is narrow but has quite a lot of passing places. Arrival and departure times are 1200 which can lead to some interesting challenges in the narrow road! On arrival, we were given a warm welcome. Facilities on site are excellent and regularly cleaned. Throughout our 17 night stay, the staff were beyond criticism - always cheerful, helpful and polite. All in all a very good experience.
