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.

Excellent site

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
This site is brilliant not only for its location in the heart of Totnes but because the wardens, Kev and Mariane go out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The facilities are immaculately kept and the pitches maintained to a very high standard. They are Motorhomers themselves and it shows! My reservation of this site is the lack of EHU. On the other hand, hook-up may encourage even more people to use it and it’s already fully booked most of the summer so perhaps things are best left alone! As for the town itself it’s pretty, quirky and slightly hippyish with some great independent shops and excellent pubs. Best pubs are the Waterman’s, the Albert ans the (up-market) 7 Stars.

Hi

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
Hi, I have previously written a review on this campsite, however I feel I must add to it Following a very wet spell in the beginning of the season, most responsible members were impressed with the site managers constant effort to try and keep the pitches in good condition, having travelled extensively during the summer, one gets used to the gradual deterioration of grass pitches through constant use, not at Steamer quay! The pitches were outstanding! It was so nice to return for the last week of the site opening to find the pitches were as green as the day the site opened, what with that and the gorgeous weather, it made for a very pleasant stay, thank you Marianne and Kev for your efforts On another topic, it never ceases to amaze me how some dog owners think it perfectly acceptable to let their animal do it’s business on someone else’s pitch! The practice seems to be getting worse each year and surely the club should enforce the ruling that dogs should be kept on a short lead at all times whilst on site, and in the case of Steamer Quay, it clearly states in the book that there is no dog walk on site, so come on dog owners give us all a break eh?,,,not everyone loves your beloved pet!., Finally, arrival time,,,there is very limited access at the reception at Steamer Quay,and as it states, arrival time is 1pm, luckily for Motor homers, there is a place further down the road that they are able to park up and wait for the arrival time if they turn up early, but the car park does not allow caravans,so if you have a caravan,make sure you don’t get there too early as there really is nowhere you can go without blocking off the roadway,, and you really don’t want to face the wrath of the site managers if you do,,so be warned!!

Nice little stop over

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
We stopped overnight here on our way to Looe in Cornwall, the site was full to capacity but surprisingly peaceful. There is no EHU which we were aware of. The location of the site is great, Morrisons is a few minutes walk away and so is the town centre of Totnes with lots of bars & cafes. Facilities were clean but tired looking. A very pleasant stay & we would definitely return.

A nice site in a great location

Steamer Quay Caravan Club Site
This is a small site not without its challenges. The club seems to be limited in what it can achieve on the site. Therefore there is no mains and the facilities are a bit limited and tired. The site is susceptible to flooding and soft ground. However it is a nice grassy site set close to the river and the centre of Totnes. The staff were first class. It is pleasant to be there and reasonably quiet. No facilities for children's play; quite grown up site. We like the site and have been more than once, and will be happy to go back another time. Totnes is great for a mooch around with lots of independent shops, a brew pub aand local pubs in back streets. The South Devon Railway is a great day trip and walking distance away. You can also do the round robin bus, steam engine and river trip to Paignton and Dartmouth.

C and C again

Gem of a site. immaculately kept. walkable to Totnes centre for the restaurants and bars. lovely scenery and walks on the doorstep. Although set in a residential area, was very quiet. Extremely friendly and helpful site warden (sorry forgot his name)
