Do not use google sat nav unless you specifically have a route for caravans or motor homes. We have a twin axle caravan and ended up down farm lanes for about 5 miles which can only be described as a hair raising white knuckle drive at low speed. The lanes were only about 8 feet wide with high hedges and loads of blind bends. My husband is an HGV driver and his nerves were shredded. The Kingsbridge to Start Bay road through the villages with pinch points that everyone complains about was a breeze compared to the lanes. The caravan opposite had made the same mistake as us and damaged his caravan. This of course is no fault of the site and it was a relief to get there. The site is meticulously well maintained and the staff were really helpful. The weather was beautifully sunny and it was a joy to chill in the afternoons. We walked to the pub through the graveyard, visited the well stocked farm shop which has a cafe that serves cream teas, went to start point lighthouse (£3.50) which was stunning and is a must, had a shopping day in Totnes which has loads of quirky shops and a bohemian feel to it, visited the local beach which you can walk to and went to nearby Kingsbridge. The site wasn’t overly busy which was a surprise as it was the first week of opening, having said that, we stayed 3 nights and it was busier when we left. We stayed on pitch 15 which was hard standing and generally peaceful. Toilet block was clean with a band system so that no more than 3 people visit at a time. The area really is stunning but sadly our experience of the lanes means we will not be back. Really loved the site and stunning surrounding areas.

Yep, people think they can take a short cut by following the lanes from the Totnes/Dartmouth road and they find out the hard way that we should do as the club says and always follow the printed directions.
