General

  • Award-winning 80-acre site two miles from the beach
  • Pools, pub, fish and chip shop, sauna, steam room and gym
  • Five private fishing lakes, woodland adventure zone and nature trails

Anyone who relishes a bit of variety on their holidays should give this award-winning site serious consideration: there are buckets and spades of activities for all ages, both on site and in the immediate vicinity.

Tucked into a valley, only a mile away from swathes of Blue Flag beaches, and a 10-minute drive from Dawlish Warren, Cofton Holidays has 80 acres of meadows, orchards and woodland laced with nature trails for visitors to explore.

The facilities here will keep the whole family happily entertained for weeks: Cofton's indoor pool has massage jets and hydrotherapy bubble loungers, as well as a sauna, steam room and gym (a small additional charge applies), and there's a splash area with water jets to entertain the kids. Or set off angling instead at one of the five private fishing lakes, to bag a monster carp (24-pounders aren't unknown here).

More? Kids can bounce around in the three dedicated play areas or explore the adventure zone in the woods, with activities such as pond dipping and bug hunting laid on in season; if it’s raining, there’s also a games room with amusements and a pool table.

After these exertions, retire to the poolside patio of the Swan Inn for a refresher and a snack: the pub opens every night and serves up a good range of grub (breakfast and lunch are also available at weekends), plus regular entertainment including live bands, discos and karaoke in high season. Cofton also has its own fish and chip joint, as well as a shop for any vittles you might need.

Wifi across the whole site (charges apply) means staying connected is simple, and it’s also worth mentioning that Cofton has excellent facilities for disabled visitors.

From the manager...

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your wonderful review!

We are glad to hear that you thought the site cleanliness was up to a high standard.

We apologise for the inconveniences you had during your stay on the pitch, if you felt your assigned pitch was not satisfactory, we would have been more than happy to relocate you where possible if this had been reported to us at Reception. We do hope this did not impact your stay with us too negatively.

Great site, clean and well organised. Take storm pegs for your tent!30/08/2020

  • Liked: 

    Cofton Holiday park was very organised from arrival to departure and everything inbetween. All facilities were modern and clean. There were handwashing points and hand gels throughout the site. Staff were friendly and helpful. The pools were great. The pub and restaurant were lovely and well organised. The shop was small but very well stocked though a little expensive. The kids arcade is tiny but ok for an hour or so. The pitches are a good size, fairly level and well maintained. Play areas for the kids are small but they enjoyed using them. Beautiful views all around the site.

    Disliked: 

    The barrier system for vehicles makes walking around the site challenging. The pitches were well maintained but the ground was very hard/rocky? and made pitching the tent difficult. We took extra tent pegs and still had to buy more as they bent when trying to peg the tents down. More play facilities would be good for the little ones.

From the manager...

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your fantastic review!

Thank you for your kind words about our staff! We take pride in the service we deliver, and it’s wonderful to hear when we’re doing well. We are glad that you felt the site cleanliness was up to a high standard, and that you and your family enjoyed the use of our facilities.

The barrier is a new system implemented to the site, and therefore, will undoubtedly have some creases that need ironing out. We will pass on your comments about the pitches to the relevant department to see if we can improve this for future use. We do hope that this did not impact your stay with us too much.

We hope to welcome you back to Cofton again in the future!

    The tackle shop. Fishing lakes. Swimming pools. Restaurant.

    Disliked: 

    Booking things on line. For me this site was too big. I prefer a field with tents round the edge and kids playing in the middle! My 7 year old grandson loved it though. It was helped by the fact that the neighbouring pitch was empty so my grandson and other children could play ball games on it.

From the manager...

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your brilliant review!

We are pleased to hear that you made good use of our facilities during your stay, and that your children enjoyed using the empty pitch next to you. The online system has had to be updated to follow the guidance for COVID. I apologise if you did have difficulties with this, and I hope it did not impact your stay with us too much.

We hope you will considering returning to Cofton again in the future.

    Big roomy well equipped pitches.
    Ease of access for bigger rigs.
    Helpful staff.
    Good signage.
    Clean and modern toilet facilities.
    Peaceful. Site activities finished at a sensible hour to not interrupt sleep.

    Disliked: 

    Rather expensive - comparable with sites on the Med or Adriatic, although this is probably Covid demand related.
    The food from the chip shop was disappointing.

From the manager...

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave your wonderful review!

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay. Thank you for your kind words about our staff! We take pride in the service we deliver, and it’s wonderful to hear when we’re doing well.

Although we offer the services of the chip shop on our site, this is a separate business that is ran by an outside company. We will ensure your comments are passed on to the appropriate manager.

We do hope you will consider coming back to Cofton again in the future.

Hello,

Thank you for taking the time to leave such a fantastic review!

We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that the outdoor pool was well used. We are also pleased to hear that you felt safe and comfortable onsite with us during these unprecedented times.

The booking system for the restaurants is new and is something we have had to implement due to COVID, therefore, there will undoubtedly be teething problems. I am sorry to hear this meant you did miss out on using some of our facilities, however I hope that this did not impact your stay too much.

We hope to welcome you back soon!
