- Eco site in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
- Spotless amenities including wetroom showers, disabled access bathroom
- Wifi, play area and games room
Want to explore south Devon in any season? With scenic views of Salcombe and the countryside towards Dartmoor – but close to a busy market town with shops, restaurants, pubs and takeaways, which can be accessed via an inland footpath or a bus stopping 200 yards from the site?
Take a trip to the traditional Parkland Caravan and Camping Site in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty a mile from the market town of Kingsbridge: a level, well-drained site in mature grounds surrounded by natural hedgerows abundant with wildlife and fauna.
Parkland has high standards all round, with heated and spotlessly clean amenities including new individual wetroom showers with basin and WC, spacious family washrooms, and a designated disabled wet room bathroom with walk-in bath. Hot water is free to use and is heated by solar panels: Parkland is a green site with energy-saving lighting and has a strong recycling and waste disposal ethos.
Other facilities on site include a dishwashing area and metered laundry room, wifi and a play area and new games room for the youngsters.
For food, there’s a pub less than a mile away in Churchstow dishing up good cider and reasonably priced meals, with other eatery options in the nearby villages of Loddiswell and Thurlestone as well as Kingsbridge.
If you’re getting the other half to cook for you, we salute you - and there's an on-site shop with fresh local produce and everyday essentials as well as local crafts, camping essentials and beach goods.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.

From the A38 (southbound) take the A384 for Totnes. From Totnes take the A381 for Kingsbridge, follow the main road for 12 miles until you arrive at Stumpy Post Cross. At this roundabout follow the sign for Parkland to the right. After one mile, at Sorley Green Cross, go straight across; you will find Parkland on your left hand side after 200 yards.
First up, Kingsbridge: the town is a mile away from Parkland, with two footpaths from the park to it away from the main roads.
If you’re getting the bus there’s a stop 200 yards from the Parkland entrance; if you’re driving, there are several places to park including at the Quayside where there are markets, concerts and events throughout the year. There’s also a cinema, craft fairs, indoor pool, the Cookworthy Museum, lawn bowls and tennis courts, or take the River Maid ferry from the Quay for a boat trip along the coast or estuary.
Next, Salcombe, Devon’s most southerly town and accessible by bus from Kingsbridge. It's famous for its ice-cream – try the rum and raisin – and you can also try boating and watersports from here, with tuition available for the uninitiated.
If your nautical flavours are more fishily based, the Salcombe commercial fishing fleet drops off a selection of that day’s catch for sale at the local fishmonger, and several of the pubs and restaurants will have the catch of the day on their menus. To land your own slippery characters, the catch and release Coombe Water Fishery is close at hand and fishing trips can be arranged from Salcombe.
Both Salcombe and Kingsbridge are in the South Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with two National Nature Reserves, heaps of walks and trails, and several towns and villages including Dartmouth and Bigbury-on-Sea – on the coast above the biggest sandy beach in south Devon and with access to the tiny Burgh Island where Hercule Poirot went after baddies. Closer to home for sand fans is Bantham, the beach closest to Parkland and a serene spot for surfing, wildlife-spotting among the dunes or slathering on the suntan lotion.
Dartmouth, Totnes, Plymouth and Exeter are also accessible on the bus routes from Kingsbridge, and there’s horse-riding, heritage railway trips and golfing close by too.
Or take the kids to one of the many family attractions round and about in Devon: Pennywell Farm, the Buckfast Butterfly Farm and Otter Sanctuary or Totnes Rare Breed Farm – with a stop-off at the Totnes weekly markets, of course. For more thrilling adventures, Crealy Great Adventure Park or Woodlands Family Theme Park should have them soaring.
