General

  • Spectacular sea views within 20 minutes' walk of Blackpool Sands
  • Five minutes' drive from Dartmouth
  • Restaurant, bar, takeaway and shop

A Blackpool beach – in south Devon? Bamboozle those back home with Blackpool references ahoy when you pitch up at Leonards Cove Holiday Park, set within easy strolling distance not of Blackpool in Lancs, but the beaut south-west beach of Blackpool Sands.

The safe clear waters and long sandy stretch here are within the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty: as you might reckon, miles' worth of similarly scenic sands are close to this cove too. You'll also be a mere few minutes' drive from the old seadog port of Dartmouth, and within 50 at most from family days out at famed attractions like Paignton Zoo, Pennywell Farm and Woodlands Family Theme Park, five miles from Dartmouth.

Leonards Cove is a peaceful, popular and roomy place, with spectacular sea views from most pitches. Its main hub is the Radius 7 bar-restaurant, which dishes up meals for those who want to eat in; if not, takeaways are available and there's a well-stocked shop on site for any additional foodie bits.

A play field is also on site, just opposite one of the gently sloping accommodation fields. For amenities, there's a washing-up area, freezer pack storage and a freshwater tap, as well as fully-serviced toilet and shower blocks with free hot water.

And finally... barbecues are allowed on site: even if you have an aversion to charring sausages over the flames, sitting back here for alfresco eats among the lush backdrop of a south Devon sunset is pretty much a must.

Please note

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Nice friendly quiet site with above average facilities. 15/05/2018

  • Liked: 

    Nice quiet site with basic but reasonably clean toilet facilities. Friendly staff. Beautiful sea views. Good restaurant and bar on site and a new take away opening soon, also a good pub in village and general store / Post Office. Blackpool sands within walking distance although walk back is very steep but good timing gives the bus back option. Bus stops directly outside site although busses do not run late from Dartmouth. Taxi from Dartmouth £8. Levelling blocks required.

Small site in a tranquil location, with clean facilities 09/05/2018

  • Liked: 

    A small site accommodating no more than 7 caravans while we were there, in a tranquil picturesque location. Could see the sea but not from our caravan. Very clean toilet/shower blocks in portacabins with lovely hot showers - free.

    Disliked: 

    Gents were closed at the end of a bank holiday weekend and would suggest that a note on the ladies toilet block door would have been appreciated.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review we much appreciate it. I know Stuart told you about the gents closing but a sign on the ladies should have been put up.

Excellent site with good facilities 08/05/2018

  • Non-electric grass tent pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Very good setting and good little shop on site with showers and toilets and a restaurant.

    Restaurant was over priced for the quality of food and service was slow.

    Close to a fantastic beach (albeit stoney) but still very nice and pretty quiet compared to most.

    Nice restaurant and shops on beach too with good toilet facilities.

From the manager...

Directions


From the M5 take the exit onto the A38 to Plymouth. Follow signs to Totnes and then to Dartmouth. As you come into Dartmouth at the second roundabout take exit signposted Stoke Fleming. Come into the centre of the village and take a very sharp right (near the post office). The campsite is 200m further down on the left.. If you hit Blackpool Sands you have gone too far.

Pennywell Farm, the activities and spectacular scenery of Dartmoor, the Splashdown Quaywest waterpark, Torquay and Kents Cavern, and the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Dartmoor Otter Sanctuary are all within 45—50 minutes' drive.
