Agree that the approach roads do have a number of pinch points, with characteristic Devon winding roads but a pretty route which we navigated OK until we reached the 'land slide' where a 15min delay occurred! (putting it mildly hahaa). Arriving at the site and approaching the reception was civilized and booking in was safe with social distancing. The Warden had reserved a pitch for us to accommodate our 8m MH, very considerate gesture. The pitch was suitable as far as we were concerned, albeit sharing 'our' grass with occupants of a van with hab door facing us. Our only humph was that we were not aware a TV lead was required, and we decided not to pay £16 at reception for another one. Hey Ho, we were on holiday and no TV was fine by us. We chose not to use any of the toilet block facilities although I understand there was a wrist band system in operation.
The Site is in a Great location to walk and/or peddle into Torcross and along the causeway, we also took advantage of the Bird Hide overlooking Slapton Ley nature reserve. At Torcross The Start Bay Inn, Torcross Boat House and Sea Breeze Cottage worked out ingenious methods of serving externally whilst being compliant with the social distancing regulations. The farm shop, cafe and Brewery Tap Room next to the site appeared popular but we only popped in to look once so no idea of prices. The Church House Inn at Stokenham can be walked to, via the site, a lane, a field and church graveyard.
The site is on a bus route and we found out too late that the bus would stop outside the site on request!
I particularly was very pleased to finally visit Slapton Sands and take in the WW2 history connected with the area. We were just happy having a long awaited holiday in our MH.
No problem at all with staying at this site should we wish a return visit to the area.
