General

  • Relaxed and simple off-grid site a mile from South Milton Sands
  • A 10-minute drive to Salcombe or Hope Cove; 45 minutes to Plymouth
  • Spacious pitches with dogs welcome and firepits for hire

Simple pitches, a superb atmosphere and splendid views are the hallmarks of South Devon Camping, a relaxed off-grid campsite on a working farm in the South Hams area.

The location of this site is a real winner – it’s the closest campsite to gorgeous South Milton Sands, so you can walk down there in about 15 minutes for days on the long stretch of soft sand, or stroll down for sunset. There are places to eat by the beach and elsewhere within walking distance too, and more over in Salcombe (10 minutes’ drive away). No doubt you’ll not be surprised to hear that loyal guests often return here year after year…

Life on site is fairly straightforward, with a focus on the essentials rather than lots of fancy facilities. Grass pitches are spacious at 10 square metres each, and they have access to coin-operated hot showers, eco toilets, a washing-up area and communal fridge-freezers. Well-behaved dogs are welcome, as are firepits (which you can bring along or hire on site).

As for days out nearby, they’re likely to revolve around the coast – stay here and you’ll be close to the South West Coast Path and all sorts of activities like kayaking, surfing and paddleboarding. Elsewhere, Dartmouth, Totnes and Plymouth are all options for alternative days out, or you could head inland towards Dartmoor National Park.

    We loved our bank holiday weekend stay, weather was perfect and the site has a very relaxed feel to it, with beaches just down the road. Showers and toilets were both cleaned twice daily and we had everything we needed. We saw deer on the other side of the pumpkin field and glow worms in the lane! Will definitely come back next summer!

    Anita was very good with communication and detailed emails of campsite and area.
    The campsite was well equipped with enough toilets and the showers were easy to use.
    Both fields offered fridges and freezers and have a very good recycling system.
    Our pitch was level for our camper van and we had a nice view of Thurlstone and down to the sea.
    A 10 minute walk to South Milton Sands- large beach and dog friendly with food and toilets near by.
    A quick walk to the village pub via the fields- 15 minutes and good food as well as village shop.

    Disliked: 

    Thankfully the cows in the next door barns calmed down by nightfall!
