General

  • Family and couples' site on the Devon/Cornwall border
  • A mile and a half from Bude and its beaches
  • Fishing, golf, sports barn, farmyard animals and nature trails

'In the countryside, by the sea' is how the Colwill clan describe their site Wooda Farm Holiday Park on the Devon/Cornwall border, which will probably sound pretty perfect to people who dither between both as a location for their hols.

Wooda is a park for families and couples, run by the Colwills since 1975, with lush views of the Cornish coastline and the countryside, and loads to do for days on site, like a fishing lake, pitch and putt, a sports barn with fitness suite and badminton, and activities like archery and tennis in school holidays.

Want to take things a tad more easily? Wander and wildlife watch around Wooda Farm's 40 acres of parkland or take a book to the park gardens.

The kids will likely want to meet the four pygmy goats, chickens and lambs that live on the farm, and when (if) they finally tire of that, they can go and look for pixies among the woodland paths and nature trails or hang out in the games and TV room. For the under-fives, bouncing around the specially designated toddlers' play room with Wendy house, slide, bean bags, ride on toys and a new soft play area should be a bit of a hit.

The Wooda Farm amenities – three shower and toilet blocks with hairdryers and sockets, disabled facilities, undercover dishwashing sinks, campers' kitchen and a washing point for wetsuits – are excellently maintained, and the park also has a well-stocked licensed shop, a launderette and wifi.

Plenty of picks for food are on hand too, with home-cooked meals (and plenty of picks for beer and wine) in the Courtyard bar and takeaway food in the Lodge.

Bringing the pooch? There's even a special shower for mucky pups who've been running around the extensive dog walking area.

    Almost everything. Amazing facilities, friendly staff, quiet relaxed feel

    Disliked: 

    WiFi extremely poor even after buying premium, takeaway a great idea but the food was average to poor (a virtually cold jacket potato that wouldn't even melt any of the cheese), dark toilets over night. But all of these were minor niggles

From the manager...

Dear Kevin,

Thank you so much for your kind review of Wooda following your recent stay here as we do value your feedback. It was lovely to read that you enjoyed your stay here and many of the facilities we have to offer.

I am sorry that you found the Wi-Fi poor during your stay. Wi-Fi coverage is currently available throughout the park with some areas having a stronger signal strength than others although we are unable to guarantee that our Wi-Fi will support all applications.

Regarding your comments about The Lodge Takeaway, this is run under a separate management and I will pass your remarks onto them

We look forward to welcoming you back in the near future.

Kind Regards,

Directions


From the M5 at Exeter, take the A30 towards Okehampton. Just past Okehampton at the top of a long hill, take the slip road signposted to Bude and follow signs to the A3072. On reaching a T-junction with the A39 at Stratton, turn right and follow the A39 for 100 metres then turn left. After 1 mile, there is a crossroads near the village of Poughill (pronounced ‘Poffle’) - carry straight on and Wooda Farm Park is 100 metres further on, on the right.

Alternatively, leave the M5 at Junction 27 and follow the North Devon Link Road to Barnstaple and Bideford. On the A39, pass through Kilkhampton and after 4 miles you will see a filling station on the right. Take the next right. Drive for 1 mile past the crossroads and Wooda Farm Park is 100 metres further on, on the right.

Note: Google Maps and satnavs are not always correct; if you are following the instructions travelling south on the A39 (from Barnstaple), please avoid Stone Hill and continue on the A39 south until you see the signs for Wooda.

Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

Wooda Farm Holiday Park's location on the Devon/Cornwall border means it's in prime location for exploring the best of both counties, from the surfing and rockpooling beaches around Bude a mile and a half away, to seaside towns and villages like Boscastle and Clovelly, both 15 miles away.

Take to the surf at Bude's Crooklets Beach (the Wooda Farm team can arrange surf lessons nearby or canoeing on Bude's canal), Widemouth Bay within three miles and Crackington Haven eight miles away from Bude. For families, Bude's sandy Summerleaze Beach or the rockpools of Northcott Mouth are top picks; dogs are allowed at both.

If you fancy a walk, it's ten miles along the South West Coast Path from Bude Canal to Crackington Haven – look out for Dartmoor tors at the Tower of the Winds storm tower – and from there further south to Boscastle, Tintagel and Port Isaac. Too tough? Turn left outside the park for the three-mile walk via Poughill village and a cream tea.

Within 20–50 minutes' drive south along the coast, explorers will reach day trips' worth of seaside towns, like Tintagel and its castle within 25 minutes and the fourteenth century fishing village Port Isaac 40 minutes away.

Rick Stein's seafood restaurants at Padstow, the start of the Camel Trail at Wadebridge and the Camel Estuary village of Rock are all 50 minutes away.

Must see

  • Tintagel Castle (16.1 miles)
  • RHS Garden Rosemoor (18.0 miles)
  • Rock Beach (27.0 miles)

National Trust

  • Lawrence House (15.7 miles)
