General

  • Award-winning and friendly park in south Devon
  • Spotlessly clean amenities
  • Thirteenth century pub close by

'Easy to get to and easy to explore from' is the main theme at award-winning and family-run Holmans Wood Holiday Park – it has easy access to the A38, is a mile from ancient market town Chudleigh, and has buses stopping outside on their way to Exeter, Newton Abbot and from there the whole of the south west.

Friendly and accommodating Holmans Wood is a 12-acre site among south Devon green hills and hedgerows, and with an eight-acre meadow and a wild woodland walk.

It has immaculately-kept loo and washroom facilities with free constant hot water; a fully-equipped launderette; an information room with a diary full of events, leaflets, magazines, books and maps; picnic tables and an undercover washing-up area. The kids' play area is well equipped with swings, table tennis, badminton and plenty of open space.

A well-stocked shop is five minutes' walk away and a traditional thirteenth century inn, the Highwayman's Haunt, serves excellent English food a very short trot away.

Directions


From the north
Follow the M5 to Exeter, then take the A38 Devon Expressway towards Plymouth. At the top of Haldon Hill, past Exeter Racecourse, you will come to a petrol station. Exit left onto the B3344 signposted Chudleigh. The entrance to Holmans Wood is at the end of this short slip road on the left hand side.

There are bus stops outside our entrance. Buses stop every hour and go towards Exeter or Newton Abbot.

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

The position of Holmans Wood Holiday Park near the A38 means it's conveniently placed for piles of south Devon things to see and do as well as many holiday resorts and seaside towns. Both Exester and Newton Abbot are easily reached by the buses that stop on request outside the park.

Sandy beaches are at Dawlish, Paignton, Shaldon and Teignmouth; see also the old fishing village of Brixham, Torquay and its Kents Cavern, and popular Devon attractions like Paignton Zoo and Living Coasts.

Inland, have a day or two in Dartmoor, starting off at its gateway Bovey Tracey (home of the House of Marbles) and winding up at well-known village Widdecombe-in-the-Moor in Dartmoor's heart. Nearby Haldon Forest has 3500 acres of woods with walking, cycling and butterfly trails.

A day on the South Devon Railway, the longest railway in the south west, will take you along the River Dart valley from Buckfastleigh and Totnes among steamingly spectacular scenery; hop off at any stop to see more and make time for the museum at Buckfastleigh before setting off.

More very vintage Devon can be seen at Canonteign Falls, Powderham Castle and many historic houses and gardens, or take the kids along to a day they'll remember at Go Ape!, Pennywell Farm or the Crealy Great Adventure Park in Exeter.

Must see

  • Exeter Cathedral - Church of Saint Peter (7.6 miles)
  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (9.6 miles)
  • Castle Drogo (11.3 miles)
