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.
