Torbay District  Scout Campsite is situated on the south coast with fantastic views. Set amongst fields and woods the campsite has excellent access to shops and the numerous tourist attractions of Torbay.

The Southwest coastal path passes the site and with Dartmoor only a few miles away from the site, we are provided with excellent opportunities for both the novice walker and the experienced hiker.


Beaches are plenty around Torbay and the site is lucky enough to have a relatively secluded beach just 10 minutes walk down the hill, ideal for swimming or just relaxing and taking in the ‘rays ‘

The campsite consists of two fields, The Back field with Pitches 1 to 8 and  has a wood pile & 2 water points.

The Front field with Pitches 9 to 15 also has a wood pile & 3 water points.

Please note for your security, our Campsite is covered by CCTV monitoring equipment.

We currently do not have facilities for waste disposal for campers using chemical toilets.

Scout Sections:

In line with the Government restrictions and that all “face-to face” Scout  activities and events are be suspended  until further notice, we have taken the decision to close Watcombe campsite for the 2020 summer season. 

The safety of our Watcombe Campsite Team and your young people and adults is of paramount importance to us. We have not taken this decision lightly but feel it is the best interest of all.

We are taking bookings, for Youth Organisations for the 2021 season.

Unfortunately we are not open to the general public, camper vans or caravans
