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.

Perfect for Totnes

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
We arrived following a ‘biblical’ spell of wet weather at around 5pm. ‘Mein host’ was extremely busy is chaperoning motor homes onto suitable pitches and desperately trying to ensure we minimised our impact on the landscape. Not an easy feat in such dreadful conditions and the relentless footfall of arriving Motorhomes…👍 We we’re consistently impressed by our hosts in their completely professional and diligent way in which they ensured everything was functioning as guests expected…👏 As for Totnes itself, what a genuinely lovely place…So many lovely independent shops, several very suitable pubs and a great feel for the 1960’s ..😃👍😆 We will definitely be back..!👍🤩 I’d like to endorse AndyChrisW and their earlier review - well done Kevin & Marianne..!👍😆

Excellent Wardens - peaceful site

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
We have just returned from 6 nights here and were not disappointed. 2 days before our arrival we had a phone call to ask if we would be taking our 8 metre motorhome off site - thankfully we do not do this otherwise we would not have been able to go there. There had been so much heavy rain for the 2 weeks before our visit that approximately only one third of the site was open, it was waterlogged. Kevin did an heroic job organising mats for everyone to get on and off pitches as the ground was so boggy but he wanted to spoil as few holidays as possible. Day after day he was trundling up and down with mats and always very friendly and helpful. Club members do not help when it says arrival 1pm and they start queuing at 11am. It does not give the wardens time to do cleaning, grass cutting and all the other multitude of jobs they have to do before accepting new arrivals. Come on club members be a bit more considerate , arrival times are there for a reason. The site is at the bottom of town and conveniently placed for shops, buses, river trips and many lovely places all around. One last huge thank you to Kevin and Marianne who worked tirelessly for our enjoyment.

We love this site

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
We have stayed here several times and like that: It’s very close to the town centre of lovely quirky Totnes but despite this is relatively peaceful It’s right on the River Dart. Beautiful. Lots of things to do locally and pleasant river walks right from the site. Plus you can catch the boat to Dartmouth. Facilities are not lavish but perfectly acceptable and very clean. There is no hook up electricity and I’m pretty sure all pitches are grass. On this occasion we were looked after by the relief wardens who did an outstanding job. There had been recent torrential rain and they were outstanding in looking after members booking in and out and going to great lengths to protect the grass pitches. The toilet facilities were spotless. A sincere well done to you for doing a great job with a welcoming smile! Give this site a try and you won’t be disappointed.

Excellent - and lovely wardens!

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
We returned to Steamer Quay and enjoyed it just as much as we always do. The wardens were particularly friendly and made us feel very welcome, talked a lot of common sense. This makes a big difference to me and would make me hesitate to return if we did not feel welcome. Great position with easy access to Totnes town which is always worth a walk around, quite unique in many ways. Great meal at the Pie restaurant and loved the Saturday market with great stalls.

Don’t forget your wristband!

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
Stopped here for a couple of nights in our campervan. Site facilities are using individual wristbands which you leave outside when you are using one of the two areas. One household can use at a time. Problem was people forget to take their band away so you could be queueing when no one is in them! Wardens advise you to lock outer door when inside so you could of course knock and open with key code to see if someone is really in there. Of course if you lock outer door and have a medical emergency no one would be able to get in! Nice walk across to Ashprington pub on Dart valley trail.
