Why stay here ...

Steamer Quay Club Site is a pleasantly quiet, green and spacious holiday getaway, with serene pastoral views. The beautifully kept caravan park is just a short walk away from the bustling town of Totnes, for a wide choice of local pubs and restaurants. Totnes has been a significant port for many centuries and is perfect for a leisurely stroll along the banks of its busy river while taking in the historic atmosphere. Further up the hill you will reach a place called The Narrows, the oldest part of the town and a must-see sight for visitors to the area.

While staying at Steamer Quay Club Site, you are within easy reach of the historic Guildhall and museum. The picturesque village of Dartington is only a short stroll away, and with beautiful gardens, outdoor theatre and a cinema, Dartington Hall is well worth a visit. The Tuesday Pannier market is a convenient location for a spot of shopping - a popular event with locals and tourists alike, the stallholders dress in traditional Elizabethan costume and sell a vast range of fresh local produce. Boat trips to the pretty harbour town of Dartmouth leave from the dock just across the road from Steamer Quay. The caravan site promises a memorable break and the opportunity to absorb the traditional English life.

All pitches at this site are economy, with no Electric Hook Up.

Return Visit

We like Steamer Quay very much and have made several visits here over the years. It's a small site in a good position on the edge of the river Dart and just a stroll over the bridge from the interesting streets of Totnes. Without EHU on site it's relatively quiet and pleasant. The grass can get a bit soggy in wet weather so take some mats or borrow the ones from the site managers. The Covid arrangements were good, the small facility block became unisex and either side could be for the sole use of a single person or family. We used our own facilities but rarely saw more than two people waiting at peak times. This year we did the walk to Dartington (beware the reduced opening times.) A good walk or cycle way with some nice riverside spots and a view of the Archimedes Screw hydro generator for some of the Totnes inhabitants. There is also a good cycle/footpath to the Sharpham vineyards. A local map is worth having to explore around this area. There are two shops for papers etc. in the nearby Bridgetown area of the site and many to choose from over the river in Totnes itself. Plenty of places to eat out too. Lovely walks into the Longmarsh parkland, just along from the site, past the jetties and rowing club.

Great location near river, small site, well run

Stayed 3 nights August 2020. Apart from new booking in process, a great escape from Covid-19! A small site, its location with the River Dart just over a quietish road makes it a very special place to visit. And Totnes is a relaxed little town with gentle, hippy style Advantages: 2 mins to walk to riverside; 5-10 mins to walk to Totnes with good range of shops, pubs etc; worth taking vehicle (1-2 mins) to park in Longmarsh car park at the end of Steamer Quay Road, about £4, literally next to the river with great park area and woods for dog runs and picnics; great wardens very helpful and friendly; dogs loved the site and area, not too difficult to walk them. Could be improved: EHUs needed (under review apparently) Didn’t use shower block at all. Would definitely stay again.

One of our favourites still

As the previous reviewer has said, Totnes C&MC site has it all - almost. A drive-over motorhome waste would be handy, but for the execllent location so close to the historic town, public transport, river etc, it can be forgiven a lot. It's such a pity that there aren't more like it. I think the site is not actually owned by the Club, but the local authority? Presumably a lease? We've just returned home from 3 nights there, a scorching weekend. The friendly wardens made us welcome (late bookers) for two nights on the limited hardstanding as there were no grass pitches. They seemed a bit apologogetic for the hardstandings, but it was fine and quiet enough. The only slight downside was their proximity to the arrivals spot. They'd come in and stop by the closed reception building, obstructing parking for the arrival of anyone following and ignoring the prominent notices instructing where to station oneself to announce ones arrival by phone and await the pack from the wardens. Most stopped and thoughtlessly left engines running. For our third night we were invited to move on to any vacated grass pitch, which we did. We didn't actually use the facilities block thuis time, and so cannotcomment helpfully upon using them in the current circumstances.

Superb location, well managed only let down by dated toilet block and no motorhome waste drain

We visited for easy access to Totnes which this site does brilliantly. I quick walk over the bridge and you are there. The site is easy to access from the main road and the arrangements around Covid 19 are well thought through. Although the site is along a road with some pedestrian traffic the site is very quiet. The staff on site were excellent. The only thing that lets the site down are the dated toilet block and the facilities to dispose of waste. There is no drain for motorhome or campervan grey water to drain away which meant driving to find a suitable drain. There is no facility to hook up which is fine, especially if you have a the latest solar power installed and sufficient leisure battery capacity. I would give the site 5 stars if it had a new shower and toilet block and the waste facilities were updated to make emptying a cassette toilet easier and allowing for the drainage of grey water.
