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.

Suits us a treat

Whilst this site is not all singing, all dancing like some other sites, it has everything to make for a great stay. The location is superb, so close to the town centre and all it's amenities. There are excellent bus services to take you to other local towns such as Torquay and Dartmouth and for motorhome owners this is great. The facilities are basic but very clean and functional and the site is kept very well. No problem with not having a hook-up if you have a decent solar panel. We will be back again later in the year.

Don't bother if "it rained last night" and the 3 hardstanding pitches are occupied; you'll likely be turned away

Despite receiving a warm welcome whenever I've stayed on this site countless times over the past few years, I had the unfortunate experience of being turned away by a "jobsworth" type (stand in) warden. He rudely "welcomed" me by demanding to know the length of my motorhome. I told him it's an i800qd and so assumed it was 8m. He wouldn't accept this and insisted on checking "the computer", which told him an i800qd (current model presumably) was in fact 8.2m long. This news seemed to bring great satisfaction and he told me I couldn't stay as there is an 8m limit on the site and that it had been raining and I would "churn up the grass". I explained it has never been an issue before and that I always park on boards if on grass but to no avail. Beware

Quiet, well run well located

This site is perfectly situated for motorhomes as everything you need is a stroll away. Totnes town is across the bridge, the ferry to Dartmouth is 100 yards away, there is a bus stop there as well, and there are numerous walks that you can take. Totnes as a town has everything you need, from markets, to craft shops to a supermarket. The pub across the river, Dartmouth Inn serves a brilliant carvery and has other meals on daily specials. The wardens are so helpful and friendly with advice, and they keep the site immaculate. OK, there is no wifi really, and no electricity, but it is still a brilliant site. We will return.

Very enjoyable stay at Steamer Quay

We have just spent a very enjoyable 7 days at Steamer Quay site. The wardens are very friendly and keep the site in first class condition and always happy to help. Yes the toilet block is dated but kept clean and tidy. The walk into Totnes takes less than 5 minutes and is full of independent shops selling almost everything you may need. Morrison’s is always available and again a 5 minute walk. The ferry to Dartmouth is a must and also walk up the Dart to Dartington. If you have a solar panel no EHU is no problem.
