Sweet camping

General

  • Leafy park in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty
  • Family run for over 40 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 friendly site has been family run for more than 40 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 (a tiptop addition for those planning a smart night out).

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 to poke about for local flora and fauna on one of the forest walks around the park.

    Swimming pool ideal for kids as not too deep. Games room kept kids busy without breaking the bank. Well equipped shop, although we had brought our campus Ng stove there was a good choice of take away food available. Nice woodland areas, play area. Spacious camping in 5acre field

A good site near interesting attractions and friendly efficient staff 03/06/2019

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Anonymous Confirmed

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

    The reception staff were very efficient as we asked for a high chair and it was delivered before we had finished unpacking the car
    The caravan was exceptionally clean and bedding was also spotless
    The site itself was clean and tidy
    The swimming pool and changing area in the female side again very clean
    We also ordered from the takeaway menu one evening and the food was hot and tasty and reasonable priced
    The wooded area was great for our two dogs and was a lovely walk

    Disliked: 

    Our only criticism was that our caravan was very close to the play areas where because it was half term it was very noisy until it got dark every night and with a toddler in our party we could hear the laughing and screaming even with the windows closed

Directions


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

Touring caravans and large motorhomes must approach via the site's brown sign route from Honiton on the Dunkeswell road. Please check your booking confirmation email and take note of the directions for touring caravans.

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 excellent 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, both just over half an hour away by car, and some spectacularly scenic sea-view strolls on the South West Coast Path. Make for Lyme Regis (35 minutes) if you like mackerel – boat trips will take you out from the harbour to catch your own for the evening's dinner.

If the big yellow thing in the sky proves elusive, families can always go and drive diggers at Diggerland Devon (15 minutes' drive), play crazy golf at Pecorama (35 minutes), meet the beasts at the Axe Valley Wildlife Park (half an hour) or take a heritage tram ride on the Seaton Tramway (35 minutes) instead.
