If you think a holiday in Devon means battling through hordes of holidaymakers on your way to the amenities, book yourself a right royal stay at Kingsland Caravans in Paignton: this tiny but peaceful park is set in a gorgeous garden setting in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking Torquay.
Kingsland has been family-run since 1958 and the amiable team will ensure a peerless welcome, even picking you up at the station if required.
Kingsland pitches are spacious and many have no size restriction. Provided with electric hook-ups, these are suitable for tents, tourers and motorhomes.
Known as the English Riviera because of its mild climate and miles of sandy beaches, this small corner of Devon is ideal for fishing, watersports, golf, climbing, hiking and biking.
Moustache twirlers and Poirot fans can follow the footsteps of the queen of crime along Torquay’s Agatha Christie Mile, taking you to Torquay Museum, Cary Gardens, Princess Gardens and the twelfth century Torre Abbey. Also in Torquay, take a trip to Kents Cavern, the marine aquarium and the miniature Babbacombe Model Village, all popular tourist attractions.
The nearby town of Paignton has the Paignton and Dartmouth Steam Railway to puff along, and the longest established steam railway in the South West, the South Devon Railway, starts off at Buckfastleigh 13 miles from Kingsland. Paignton Zoo is also well worth a look, and Preston Sands and Elberry Cove handy for watersports and jetskiing.
Elizabethan enthusiasts can go below deck at the Golden Hind in Brixham, the replica of Sir Francis Drake’s globe-travelling ship; if this whets your appetite for all things nautical, hire a boat at the quayside for fishing and sightseeing. To hike around more historical attractions, National Trust properties, museums, castles, abbeys and historic villages all close to hand.

From the manager...
One toilet seat broken & replaced next day. With lots of rain mud came into shower rooms. Showers cleaned throughout the day. it is impossible to clean during the busy times in the morning. To say the facilities are poor is simply not true.

You can now make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children on Pitchup.com.
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.
Use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together when booking multiple pitches: the campsite or park will try to grant your request.
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.
