Start Bay Caravan Club Site is situated on a long and gently sloping meadow, surrounded by attractively well-kept shrubs and trees for an added sense of privacy. This perfect countryside location is a mere three quarters of a mile away from the sea, making it an excellent destination for those craving a classic summer holiday. Bird enthusiasts will not be disappointed when visiting the caravan park as it's within easy reach of the local bird sanctuary at Slapton Ley. If sailing is your passion, you can conveniently moor at East Portlemouth to explore the marvellous harbours and creeks of this lovely coastal area.
The beach near Start Bay Caravan Club Site offers excellent sea fishing - keen anglers are advised to bring along their tackle to make the best of their getaway. The Start Bay Inn is a short walk away and locally renowned for its excellent fresh fish and chips. Just a few steps from the pub, the charming Seabreeze Cafe, located on the beachfront, serves delicious cakes, coffee and light lunches. The caravan park is also conveniently placed for the interesting excursions around the historic town of Kingsbridge, which is renowned for its excellent food, attractive buildings and an old-world charm. The picturesque coastal towns of Dartmouth and Salcombe are both nearby and also offer great dining and shopping options.

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.
