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.

Almost perfect

Many people give this site 5 stars and it's certainly one of our favourites if not our favourite site. The location is spot on with relative peace and quiet yet everything you could want a stones throw away. The reason for 4 stars is a realistic appraisal of the site itself. The pitches - all grass are close together, the facilities clean but very dated and as a previous reviewer said the waste water empying point is a joke and has been since we've been going there. If you're Geoff Capes you'll be able to lift your container up to the ledge for emptying, not that the ledge is anywhere near the right shape. Come on CC how much does a bag of concrete cost for a ramp? Don't be put off though, this site is still special.

Not up to usual Club Standards

Visited in September. Wardens very welcoming and friendly and try to look after the site as best they can with the limitations they have. No EHU, but this is stated in the description, so we were aware. Small site, well maintained grass pitches, but all very close together. Old but clean toilets and showers, toilet cubicles very very small and toilets are very low, especially if you have limited mobility. Showers have hot water but are grubby as the silicone round the shower basin is black. Showers are in need of repair/replacement.Washing up facilities available. Close to town centre, so handy for shops.Limited recycling. - only glass. Waste water disposal useless, as too high to lift your disposal container up to. Road adjacent to site can be noisy. Take wellies as the area is prone to flooding.  To sum up, great location and wardens, but site let down by lack of investment by the Club for years.

Brilliant Location

My wife and I visited Steamer Quay in September 2019 for 5 nights. It is many years since we last visited when our family were very young some 30 years ago and very little has changed. That may seem to be a criticism but it is just brought back the happy memories of that visit. Yes, the toilet block is small and outdated but it is spotlessly clean, there is no electric hook up but it was nice to get back to basics a little bit and think of and manage our power consumption, spending time chatting and reading more, and there are very limited hard standing pitches. But we knew about all of these from the site details. The location of Steamer Quay more than makes up for the lack of amenities - there are many reviews listing many of the attractions so I won’t repeat them here but the accessibility to Totnes town centre with everything it has to offer, I think, is second to none! The wardens were helpful and approachable - the site was well maintained. It was wonderful!

Great location

We visited the site in September 2019. The central location of the site is excellent, just a short walk into the lovely town of Totnes, with access to excellent shops, restaurants, pubs etc. The staff are extremely wlecoming and friendly. The facilities are clean and well maintained but very dated. I would look forward to the block being modernised and the lack of a proper grey water drain for motorhomes is disappointing. The capacity is limited so it is important to book in advance. Overall,a great site.

What a super site

This is our favourite site. Admittedly it hasn't got electricity but it has everything else. It's very well appointed with really loads to do. Plenty of eating houses and a big supermarket. There's a very good Cheese shop on the little lane opposite the Seven Stars pub. This site has everything we want and it's right in town. Love it.
