General

  • Leafy park in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Family run for over 30 years
  • Pool, sauna, licensed shop and wildlife information room

Hide yourself away in the leafy dells of Forest Glade Holiday Park, within the serene and eye-wateringly lovely Blackdown Hills (the landscape here is so unique that it's been officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).

This four-star site has been family run for more than 30 years, and it shows in the thoughtful touches that have been added to make sure visitors have a comfortable stay, from the parent and baby rooms to the ladies’ makeup corner.

After pounding their fellow guests into submission on the all-weather tennis court, holidaymakers can relax to the max in the free heated indoor pool and sauna, then stock up for an evening’s cook-in at the licensed shop, or grab a bite from the takeaway.

Mini campers are sorted too, with a paddling pool, adventure playground, games room, indoor soft play, and a designated area for ball games. Budding David Attenboroughs should check out the wildlife information room before heading off in search of local fauna on one of the forest walks around the park.

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Kathryn J. Confirmed

  • Electric hardstanding motorhome pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    peaceful setting and friendly staff, toilet and shower facilities well presented.

    Disliked: 

    no tv signal, occasional phone signal

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. We appreciate your feedback regarding our location, staff and facilities. I'm sorry you found the mobile phone signal poor here. It does very much depend which network you are using as some are better than others. The TV signal here is normally very good - park staff can often advise on this.

    Disliked: 

    toilet block old and in need of complete refurbishment, it was also unheated, not good for showers in October, better lighting at night

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. I'm sorry that you weren't happy with our amenities building. We have a rolling programme of investment in the park concentrating on a different area each winter. In the meantime we aim to keep areas clean, tidy and well-maintained and welcome feedback from guests during their stay regarding this, and room temperature etc. Then we can make changes immediately if required.

The site is in a beautiful location surrounded by woodland ... 30/09/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Frank S. Confirmed

  • Electric gravel touring pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    The site is in a beautiful location surrounded by woodland with some great walks, the pitches are perfectly adequate. The toilet block although adequate needs updating.

    Disliked: 

    Getting there is a nightmare particularly if you arrive after dark. Some serious sign posting is required. Once you leave the main road the small country lanes, the majority of which are single track leave you praying nothing comes in the opposite direction whether you have a caravan in tow or not!!!

    Our caravan was situated close to the road so we did have to contend with traffic at night.

    Everything.

    Arrived quite late, but the manager was smiley, got the key and an information leaflet, and that's it. Leaving the site was the same, no one bothers you, unless you want it.
    Toilet are clean, despite the campsite was far from empty.
    Our pod was close to the entrance, to the road, but no car could wake me up (I'm a light sleeper).

Directions


By car
The campsite is 5 miles from Junction 28 of the M5. Take the A373 towards Honiton and turn left just past the Keepers Cottage pub. We are 2.5 miles off the main road, at the top of the hill in the forest.

Touring caravans and large motorhomes must approach via our brown sign route from Honiton on the Dunkeswell road.

Local attractions

The scenery around Forest Glade obviously makes for awesome walking and cycling (you can hire bikes in Tiverton), but there are masses of other activities on offer nearby, from fly fishing to flying, and riding to gliding. Bon vivants will find a glut of cream teas, farmers’ markets and quality pubs and restaurants in the immediate area.

It’s easy to explore the wilds of both Exmoor and Dartmoor from here, or you can gaze your way along the spectacular Jurassic Coast (England’s first natural World Heritage Site). There are beaches at Sidmouth and Exmouth, but if the big yellow thing in the sky proves elusive, families can always go and drive diggers at Diggerland, play crazy golf at Pecorama, or take a heritage tram ride on the Seaton Tramway instead.

Must see

  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (4.7 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (9.1 miles)
  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (12.1 miles)

National Trust

  • Killerton (9.0 miles)
  • Killerton: Budlake Old Post Office (9.0 miles)
