Plymouth Sound, Devon

This is a site we return to, it has wonderful views over Plymouth Sound out to St Catherine's Chapel on the Cornish Coast and, with a steep walk down the lane to Bovisand Bay the Eddystone lighthouse comes into view. The cove at Bovisand is great for all ages with the bonus of grassy picnic areas and a cafe. Walks to Wembury on the coastal path start here. Up on the site the wind nearly blew us away but we still enjoyed our brief visit. There is a very good dog walk and a large playing field on the site. The site is in the little village of Down Thomas which has a small shop and the aptly named "Mussel Inn." Don't expect to see all the views when the site is busy but at quieter times of the year there is a good chance of a reasonable sea view. The pitching price is very good value, we paid £14.50.

stunning views

this site has stunning views overlooking Plymouth sound. few narrow bits of road on approach to be careful of but its not to bad. plenty of walks, local shop and pubs nearby. mainly targeted at adults as nothing on site for children . MAIN CONCERN:: Delighted now caravan and motor home club (well done!), but, would it be possible to accommodate motor homes better?, by this i mean any chance of hard standing being put in, all best pitches are down front for caravans but now motor homes are in the title maybe we can have a few pitches hard standing.?

Stunning views

We have been here before and its a dramatic place to view the sound. Unlike others who have reviewed the site we found the male warden to be a little petty , he seemed alright as long as you took his advice but if you contradicted him , then he clearly didnt like it.shame because its a good site, no facilities so the wardens dont have much to do

Perfect little hideaway!

Wonderful site, beautiful views over Plymouth Sound and very helpful wardens. Very convenient for visiting our daughter at Plymouth Uni, so we've been twice this season. Lots of healthy walking around the coast or woodland with plenty to see.  Having no wifi did not appear to be too much of problem this time because we were out and about so much. TV reception very good for when you do need it. We will definitely be back when the site reopens in 2017.

Brilliant wardens and stunning views.

We arrived at the site and were welcomed by the most helpful wardens. Nothing was too much trouble and we were given a lesson on parking and stabilising a caravan on a slope. The site was kept very clean and well organised. A great place to stay if visiting Plymouth and the picturesque part of Devon. With Many Thanks Kath and David.

Great quiet break.

Just returned from 10 days at this site. We love it here for its views, particularly the activity in the sound. We arrived late in the day in the pouring rain and just pitched. Next morning we asked if we could move pitches, the wardens said we could help ourselves, asked if we needed any help then cut the grass on the pitch we were moving to. What more could you ask for? Lovely site and great wardens.

Thank you.

Chilling Out

This was a very easy site to find but do follow the instructions. The site was very clean and peaceful with a separate field for playing in and a practical dog walk. The views were stunning and there are some lovely walks close by. Being a retired sailor it was lovely to watch the shipping and yachts. The site is south westerly facing lovely and sunny with great sunsets. Be wary of SW GALES the sight is quite exposed on high winds. We were not that impressed with the two local pubs but there again that's not why we go caravaning. Big thumbs up for the wardens- cheerful, helpful and knowlegeable ?? We will definitely come again

Exceptional, friendly and made us feel welcome thank you the wardens

We have just stayed here for 3 nights and all I can say is what a fantastic beautiful and clean site this is. From the moment we pulled in to the site we were made extremely welcome by the wardens (lovely couple). They were both friendly and had exceptional customer service. I even saw the wardens walking round the site with members as they looked for a pitch giving them advice about the site and the best places to pitch up. We originally booked for 2 nights but extended to 3 nights as we liked the site so much and nothing is too much trouble for the wardens. The dog walk here is excellent and very big. Thank you to You both for a lovely stay and we will defiantly be back as soon as we can.

Perfect for dog owners

Lovely site in a beautiful spot. Best dog walk in a large field and just a short way down a lane you are directly onto the coastal path. Nice dog friendly pub serving great food just a few minutes walk. Very friendly with the best views over the bay, I shall definitely return.

Lovely clean relaxing site

Just returned from 7 day stay at this site - so clean and wardens work so hard to keep it immaculate. Lovely views over Plymouth sound, relaxing watching the passing boats, ships and occasional submarine.  Loved it definitely will be back thanks for super holiday.
