    Hi all I know I can read all reviews of any clubs sites ,but sometimes its good to get info direct...so I am a tad disabled and 70yr old solo male and I want to find a nice club site in Devon in September. I like beaches ,not too crowded , also nice gentle walking,bus stop near by and maybe a shop or pub nearby for the odd meal,(fish and chips my fav) ..so recommendations would be gratefully received.... Roy

    Slapton sands camping & caravan club site, nice beach (pebbles) and bus stop half a mile away, 2 very good pubs about 1/4 mile and proberly the best fish & chips in the south west at Torcross about 1.5 mile away level walking. We have been there several times,lovely site. One tip DO NOT TRY TO DRIVE THROUGH SLAPTON VILLAGE.

    A tad pricey, but Hillhead is lovely. Bus stop is right outside the gate for a ride into Brixham. Hillhead has a bar and restaurant on site if you feel like staying put.

    Slapton CCC site is realy nice, however this is a section of the road from Dartmouth to Slapton at a place called Stoke Fleming, we went last year. The most interesting bit is about 3 & half min into the clip.:eek:
