Why stay here ...

Set in 22 acres of Devon countryside and close to the beach, Hillhead Club Site offers some of the finest facilities in the network. As well as this, the caravan site is set in a fantastic location with a large number of pitches offering stunning views of the sea and surrounding coastlines. There is plenty of entertainment for both the young and old with an outdoor heated swimming pool and children's pool (Jun - Sept), playground, play area and an indoor complex housing a games room, shop, bar, restaurant and takeaway service for all the conveniences you could want. Hillhead Club Site also hosts a varied selection of evening entertainment and themed events, especially during peak season.

For those wanting to explore further afield there are miles of sandy beaches, an 18-hole golf course, pitch and putt, tennis, fishing, sailing, steam railway trips and a zoo, all within easy reach. If you fancy a spot of shopping, the busy town of Brixham is less than two miles away, Paignton and Torquay are nearby and the ferry across to the pretty harbour of Dartmouth is only a 5 minute drive from the site. For walkers, a lovely stroll along the cliffs takes you to down to sandy beach at Broadsands.

The site received a fantastic new playground as well as improvements to the pavements around the covered courtyard area near the entertainment complex as part of a recent refurbishment.

Fabulous caravan park +++++

Having just spent 10 nights at Hillhead words cannot describe our expierence at this caravan park, the site was very peaceful and quiet, the staff friendly and atmosphere festive. The amenities clean and within easy reach .The entertainment was absolutely fabulous ,my only issue if I may was the catering , it could do with a little more imagination as our order was somewhat bland and tasteless, The menu at the bar was a let down as the kitchen did not have the food to cook or had run out, and this with an empty bar? These issues can be overlooked as it was end of season and most likely the stocks run down. This was our second visit to Hillhead. The bus service was very good with the bus stop outsite the site main entrance . New years eve party was mind blowing and memorable , will we come back? you darn right we will:)))))

Great site even on a wet and windy week-end

No much to say really, the rain poured down for most of Saturday we went to see the fireworks in Brixham that night and it was spectacular. Went back to site on the bus that stops right outside, had a nice meal in the club house with a drink, then went back to our van. The toilet blacks were always warm clean and dry and even the staff that were raking the leaves in the pouring rain were very pleasant. Great site all I can say is "go there"

Autumn break at popular site proves slightly disappointing

This is a site we would avoid during the main holiday season as its is obviously family orientated but we thought out of season in November would be an excellent base to visit the Torbay area. The added incentive of service pitches to take away the need to do the chores in the possibly cold & wet conditions and midweek discount ticked all the boxes. However, whilst arriving on site was pleasant enough when we looked to choose a service pitch we found that these differed greatly in size even to the point where it would prove impossible to pitch caravan, awning and place car as specified by the Club’s obligatory rules. We eventually chose pitch 7 but had to resort to moving the pitch peg to get all elements within the hedges. My OH actually paced out pitches 6 & 7 and pitch 6 was about 3 foot narrower! At least the view was worth It! Looking around the rest of the site it is pleasantly attractive with lots of bays and sections but I would imagine when busy would prove difficult to navigate and I would be concerned about children running around being at risk of cars & outfits moving around. We can’t comment on the restaurant facility as we chose not to use it. One thing that did concern us was the wardens failed to empty the recycling bins for the whole of the eight days we were there and they were overflowing to the point the lid could not be closed on the morning we left. The location of the site was good for visiting the Dartmouth & Torbay area with the ferry across to Dartmouth particularly enjoyable if a little unnerving at first. Also the Guardroom cafe on Berry Head serves lovely breakfasts until midday and allows dogs inside with doggy biscuits treats for them. All in all a great break but the site did not quite met normal expected standards.

2 stays this year

We went to this site in our motorhome twice this year and it was absolutely excellent. We have now booked for two weeks next year. We are walkers so we did not have to take the motorhome off site as there is a bus stop at the site entrance. One direction goes down to Dartmouth and the other to Brixham/ Paignton/Torquay. We had a great time.
