Sadly all good things come to an end.
We have thoroughly enjoyed our many visits to Salcombe Regis campsite (SRC) this year but as the end of the season looms it’s almost time to put our little caravan to bed for the winter. In the sure and certain knowledge that it will be looked after over the winter by Mark, Sally, Steve & Glenys and those whose names I know not.
This has been our first experience of a caravan holiday year and we have been delighted with every aspect of SRC – even during the maelstrom that was Sidmouth Folk Week – the service levels did not falter.
If you, like we were, thinking of taking on a caravan take our advise. Appoint the best campsite in Devon to look after it for you. Simply arrive to your van set up and levelled – unpack and pop the kettle on. Or in our case open the sherry wine. It’s simply awesome (to use the young folks expression of choice!)
So much so, we have booked a cheeky long weekend in September before those pesky nights draw in once and for all. Roll on next season. SRC – five stars every time.
We stayed here for 2 nights over the bank holiday weekend. The campsites lovely, clean and tidy. The tents pitches are very spacious and the site wasn’t crowded. Shower and toilet block were always clean and tidy. The fresh croissants every morning were really appreciated, as to was the takeaway tea and coffee. Very dog friendly, which made a change as they’re not normally welcomed many places. A lovely walk from the campsite takes you to a quiet beach on the coastal path, which was great as it was the only beach we found that dogs were allowed on. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and look forward to visiting again soon.
We camped in July half term for two nights. Lovely quiet site. Grounds very tidy and well maintained. Showers clean and hot. Freshly baked croissants are sold in the small shop in the mornings but be quick as they sell out quickly! Loved Sidmouth…we used the free Hopper bus from the campsite to Sidmouth. Will definitely stay at this campsite again.
The last time we had camping this good we were in the Isle de re and the weather was hot hot hot! This time round the weather was good (for England) but the camp site was first class! Mark & Sally made us feel very welcome and I must say that the croissants and fresh coffee really added “un petit je ne sait quoi” to the holday feeling. You could do with a website refresh though 😉
Stayed here with my two daughters and my husband. We actually found this site whilst looking on Trip Advisor and after seeing the reviews we thought we’d make a booking. We didn’t actually think that it would be as good as everyone was saying! The setting is perfect, our tent pitch even had a gorgeous sea view. It’s only a short walk to the donkey sanctuary, although you can get the free hopper bus there if you prefer, which comes into the car park on site. This park is the only one near by which is off the main road which was a comfort seeing as I had my two young daughters who spent a lot of time on their bikes around the park. Sidmouth is a beautiful seaside town and I will recommend Salcombe Regis camping and caravan park to a lot of friends and family. Very friendly and helpful staff! We will definitely be back next school holiday!
Sally has started to bake croissants on the premises every morning and are sold on a first come first served basis. The shop opens at 08:30 – don’t miss out!! Fresh tea and coffee to go too.
Mark & Sally are pleased to announce that following our recent AA Inspection we have been awarded an extra pennant increasing our Grade from 3 to 4.
We have been working hard to make modest but important improvements to the site and have some exciting plans for the future. We are delighted that the Inspector has recognised our efforts in making his award.

All reviews written in our site “Guest Book”.
It has been a steep learning curve but made so much easier with our fantastic wardens Steve & Glennis. We are already looking at ways to improve on what is already a superb park and your feedback is important in this regard. We have just met a couple that have been coming to the park for 43 years – yes 43 years! That must say something about what we have on offer. This is such a friendly site with clients from all of the UK that just keep coming back along with many overseas visitors. We hope to meet more of you over the coming months and years ahead.
