In about two miles at mini roundabout, signed for Dartmouth/Kingswear, turn right and immediately fork left onto B3205. The site is second on the left with clear signs at the entrance.

Hillhead Caravan Club site is what you might call one of the Club’s all singing, all dancing campsites in that it has a swimming pool and a bar/restaurant plus proper shop. It is open from around March to early January and accepts non-members. The topography of the site is as the name suggests it is on a headland overlooking the sea and many pitches do have a nice sea view. The very nature of the site means that some pitches will require levelling blocks although the hardstanding are quite good and only require minimal levelling in most cases. Hillhead is a large campsite with 256 pitches in total. They are mainly on grass but there are 111 hardstanding pitches and included in that number are 27 serviced pitches for which an extra charge applies. Thirteen of the pitches are designated for tents. Some of the pitches are divided by hedges which not only gives some privacy but also shelter from a stiff sea breeze. Electric points are convenient to all pitches and are rated at 16amps and use CEE17 blue connectors. The bollards also have a TV co-ax hook-up but you have to provide your own cable or purchase one from reception. There are several service points dotted around the site. The motorhome service point is outside the toilet block near reception but does require heavy covers to be removed before emptying waste water. There are two modern toilet blocks of excellent quality. The lower block is usually closed at the end of September and only the main one nearer to reception kept open. The main one does have the advantage of a fully enclosed washing up area. For families the major advantage of this site is the facilities for children. It has a swimming pool (seasonal) and a fairly extensive adventure style playground, in addition there is a large field for kick about sports. The site also has a bar/restaurant and a shop selling everyday essentials and some camping accessories. There is site wide WiFi and time can be purchased online, however I found it frustratingly slow a lot of the time during our stay.

This site is conveniently close to many of the attractions of this part of Devon. Brixham and Torbay are close by as is Kingswear and Dartmouth. The Dart Valley Railway  runs from Kingswear to Paignton. The two ferries across to Dartmouth open up more opportunities for exploration including cruises on the River. If you prefer to use public transport the site is well served with regular bus services from immediately outside the campsite to Kingswear, Brixton and Paignton with further connections from all those places. For shopping, apart from the onsite shop, there are supermarkets en route to Torquay.
