Go glamping in Devon at Woodovis Park – Family Holidays with a twist
Woodovis Park is a small, safe and peaceful 5 star holiday park nestled on the edge of Devon’s Tamar Valley: an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a designated World Heritage Site. It’s ideally located for exploring the West Country, with endless places to visit and things to do on your holiday. They are close to Dartmoor National Park and within easy reach of the UK’s most dramatic coastlines and beaches.
You’re guaranteed a warm, friendly welcome. Whether you’re camping, touring or staying in a luxury caravan, nothing’s too much trouble for their staff who are on hand to help and advise at all times.
Woodovis Park has won many top level awards for its superb facilities and services, but they’re most proud of “what our guests say”
Leave the tent behind…Enjoy all the fun of camping without the packing up! If you love the idea of camping but understandably want to keep dry and cosy and away from those creepy crawlies, then our cute Camping Pods & Super Pods are the answer. They’re the ideal place to build your own warm, snugly nest. Bring all of your normal gear but when you arrive you just move in straightaway! No time lost erecting or packing away a wet tent!
Live under big skies, see the stars, get back to nature. But there’s no need to stray too far from comfort: chocolate croissants for breakfast from our shop and a short stroll up the road to a superb local pub for dinner.
Two new super pods at Woodovis Park (www.woodovis.com) in Devon are the perfect family-friendly solution for kick-starting the camping season this spring. Fully insulated and complete with electric heater, the super-size camping pods offer the appeal of getting close to nature without any fear of chill and dreary weather ruining an affordable spring break. Campers can arrive and check straight in without breaking a sweat erecting a tent, and there’s no muddy canvas to pack away at the end of the stay.
The super pods come equipped with a table and two bench seats that convert into a double bed, covered decking with table and chairs for watching the world go by, double glazing, insulated walls, heater, electric socket, lighting and even a TV. Two additional camp beds can be supplied on request. Positioned in a quiet corner of the tranquil site, pod guests can awake to the sound of bleating lambs and birdsong before setting out to explore the bluebells and rhododendron of the beautiful Tamar Valley and nearby Dartmoor National Park.
Other family-friendly features at Woodovis Park include an outdoor table tennis area and solar-heated, indoor swimming pool. Kids can also sign up for archery and ‘water walking’ in the pool while adults relax in the infrared therapy sauna.
Top free Dartmoor activities include cycling the Granite Way or the new Drake’s Trail. More unusual and free pursuits include swimming wild and letterboxing – navigation, walking, running or hiking on Dartmoor amidst breathtaking scenery whilst searching for letterboxes and the coveted stamps inside. Families will also enjoy seeking out nearby film locations from Spielberg’s ‘War Horse’ or heading to Dartmoor Zoo, inspiration for ‘We Bought a Zoo’.
The super pods sleep up to four people and cost from £55 per night. Woodovis Park sits in 14 acres in the tranquil surrounds of the Tamar Valley on the Devon-Cornwall border, located on the edge of Dartmoor in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a designated World Heritage Site.
Also within a half hour’s drive of Woodovis Park, Hidden Valley Discovery Park (www.hiddenvalleydiscoverypark.co.uk) makes for a great day out, whatever the weather.
