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.

Owner is suspicious and believe it is ok to accuse people of stealing 19/06/2018

    Nice setting and facilities

    Disliked: 

    The owner accused me of stealing a pallet. Totally threw me off balance and obviously was quite upsetting. Cast a shadow over a nice weekend camping. It seems the owner does not trust people who drive pick up trucks, like me.

A clean, well equipped and pretty site. 04/06/2018

  • Liked: 

    My husband and I wanted to take our 11 year old grandson camping during the half term after a hard week of SATS tests. We found Forest Glade on line after a long search as everywhere we'd wanted to go was fully booked. We didn't expect Forest Glade to be very good as it seemed to have a very good range of facilities at a very reasonable price. We were so pleased that we'd chosen this site! The site was clean, pretty and had excellent facilities, particularly for our grandson who loved the games room, swimming pool and well stocked shop. Although the site was full it was very quiet, the families with small children were in another field which meant our field was perfect for us and we weren't woken up early by excited children. The staff were really friendly and made sure we had everything we needed.The toilet block was clean and the pool was kept at a perfect temperature for us. Our dog Agnes loved walking in the woods and meeting the other dogs on the site.We had a great weekend and plan to return with the rest of our family.

    Disliked: 

    We were very satisfied with everything.

Beautiful forest where we took the dog for walks, play ... 04/06/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Rhona S. Confirmed

  • Otter 2 bedroom static caravan (pet friendly)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Beautiful forest where we took the dog for walks, play area for kids was good. Kids enjoyed the zip wire which we noticed got locked at 9pm so became very quiet after that. The indoor pool was nice but smaller than we expected and could get crowded on sunny days. Peaceful and quiet and everyone around us respected the noise curfew of 10pm. The hired caravan was clean and had everything you needed. The only thing was the double bed mattress was old and we could feel the springs. We did tell reception on the way out and they said they'll replace it.

    Disliked: 

    Being made to feel uncomfortable by other campers for letting our children enjoy themselves
    Being told to be quiet by staff when in our opinion we were not then to be told the next day by a staff member we were not really loud but they had to be seen to do something
    Maybe the person whom complained unnessacerly should have been spoke to also with a reasonable noise amount.

Lovely location and site at fair prices - family friendly 08/04/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Daniel B. Confirmed

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

    The location and facilities were great. The freshly baked products to order for the morning were delicious. We felt safe letting our child play. Everything was clean. The pitches were spacious. Lovely walks and woods to explore.

    Mobile reception was good - we got several bars of 4G with EE so we did not need to buy Wifi. With this we were able to stream Netflix to the van's TV.

    It was good that a route from the local town was provided as following a satnav would have taken us some horribly narrow roads.

    Disliked: 

    The rain made parking our van a little tricky as between the tarmac and the gravel pitches was very muddy. The swimming pool showers were broken due to frost damage - there was no hot showers. Both just bad luck really.

    The one thing I'd suggest for improvement is to stock more local fresh or frozen produce. The shop only had milk and bacon in the fridge. I would have liked some local farm products like local eggs, sausages, steak, mince, burgers, cheeses, meats, etc. We had to go to Tesco.

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.

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 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)
