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 - and lovely wardens!

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!

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.

Return Visit

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.

Great location near river, small site, well run

Stayed 3 nights August 2020. Apart from new booking in process, a great escape from Covid-19! A small site, its location with the River Dart just over a quietish road makes it a very special place to visit. And Totnes is a relaxed little town with gentle, hippy style Advantages: 2 mins to walk to riverside; 5-10 mins to walk to Totnes with good range of shops, pubs etc; worth taking vehicle (1-2 mins) to park in Longmarsh car park at the end of Steamer Quay Road, about £4, literally next to the river with great park area and woods for dog runs and picnics; great wardens very helpful and friendly; dogs loved the site and area, not too difficult to walk them. Could be improved: EHUs needed (under review apparently) Didn’t use shower block at all. Would definitely stay again.
