We have just returned from a weeks holiday at Challaborough Bay. We won it in an ebay auction and as we've never been here, before decided to give it ago. As many reviewers have mentioned once you pass Modbury the lanes that lead down to the park are very tight country lanes, there are a few passing places, but unfortunately alot of drivers don't use them and drive straight towards you. If you are easily intimidated this wont be very pleasant. When you get to the park you are greeted by the lovely bay that sweeps out in front of you. It really is very serene. The check in process was very easy, and our caravan was located in the Glen section. The caravan was very clean, had a small decking area outside with a view of the sea, and a great shower. My only problem with the caravan was the size of the toilet, it was housed it a room that was literally 3ft x 2ft, if you are broad shouldered as I am, you wont fit in there. Thank goodness there was toilets on site!!
There was no mobile phone reception here whatsoever, (we use o2), and if you want to use an internet dongle then forget as there is no coverage here. We went to a PC World to ask and they did a check and found nothing for the area.
One other thing to mention is the shop closes at 6pm, so if you need anything after that time the nearest supermarket is in Kingsbridge which is 9 miles away.
Brilliant singer in the club house on the saturday night, Matt Baker I think, we only went once and the price for a house vodka and Orange and a Crabbies Ginger beer was £9.80 so gave it a miss from then.
We went to the restaurant on the last morning for a full breakfast which I can highly recommend, great views across the bay, and the prices for food were really good.
Im glad we came here but wouldn't return due to the remoteness of the area
