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.

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.

Fantastic Wardens but oh! the WiFi is rubbish

Yes, the road coming in is narrow, but there are quite a lot of passing points. The site is well cared for. We had a service pitch, but they are quite tight if you have an awning. The wardens were probably the most friendly and helpful we have experienced. The WiFi really is a joke. The only time I could get on it was early in the morning. As soon it gets busy it is hopeless to even log on. I was unable to log on any evening during my 5 night stay. To phone the helpline for the WiFi cost 3.5p connection charge then 11.5p per minute!!!!!!!!!! The field for the dogs was fantastic, the grass was nicely cut, hand sanitiser on the gate and a dog bin provided. I have noticed some comments on the grass cutting, I must say that there is a lot of grass to cut on the site, and I would much rather have the grass kept nice (which it was) than have long grass everywhere.

Not quite what we expected

On approaching the site the road from the A385 is very narrow and twisty with quite fast traffic approaching from Stoke Gabriel. Booked a non awning pitch due to very limited availability and on arrival we were advised that there is approx 7 pitches all in one area adjacent to the exit to the site, entrance to the dog walk and entrance to the play area so no chance of a peaceful stay. Making the noise worse was the grass getting mowed on 3 consecutive days by 3 different types of mowers, we understand the grass needs maintained but it was constant. The trees adjacent to the pitches are now becoming over grown so need trimmed back. The washroom facilities were very clean and very well maintained. No signage on the building advising where the dishwashing or laundry facilities are.

A very pleasant stay...if you don't need wifi

We stayed here for 5 night in late August. Lovely site. Decent facilities - clean, warm shower block. Access road is narrow in places so avoid meeting other caravanners by adhering to the suggested arrival & departure times! However, I planned to work for a couple of the days. The phone signal (BT Mobile) was rubbish, but then you're out in the middle of nowhere so that's to be expected...even if we can send people to the moon these days. So I paid £11 for a week of wifi. What a waste of money. Took forever just to login and, once in, wasn't worth the wait because it was terrible. Staff did everything they could, but it seemed to have no bandwidth at all. Could barely support a Google search let alone a voice-only conference call.Couldn't even maintain sufficient connection to complaint effectively to AirAngels, the service provider, via their own online chat!! In summary, lovely site, decent facilites & helpful staff. But don't expect to be in touch with the outsde world.

A pleasant surprise

Our car threw a tantrum en route to hear but met with a warm friendly welcome. Booking in was swift and easy and took only a few mins. What surprised us was the freedom to choose from hard standing or grass pitches the choice was ours for no extra cost. We were club site virgins never used them before. With the weather due to turn against us again I asked where the best sheltered pitches were which were down behind reception but to choose for ourselves. We parked up and had a quick walk around and decided where to pitch. There was plenty or room to reverse on to the pitch with just a short use of the motor mover to adjust the caravan.The hard standing pitches were lovely and flat so no adjustment required to get level.The only minor issue we found was the electric hook up where you insert the lead then a slight twist to engage it for the electric. Water points and waste disposal close by bins were emptied daily with some for normal waste and others for recycling. People mention the narrow points on the road leading to the site and maybe our timing was ok and we never experienced any problems in passing anyone. Dont let this put you off visiting here its not as bad as you may think check out google maps ( or other sites). Toilet and shower blocks cleaned twice a day and always clean in between. My only suggestion would be to have more bands to suit the size of your booking with 4 females among us and only 2 bands we would have to wait for the others to return before using the facilities our van doesnt have a decent shower area. Sadly the games area is shut for obvious reasons so my daughter and niece and other children around maybe missed out on a chance to socialise. To sum this up we felt relaxed and happy like we have been on holiday.
