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.

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.
