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, and thank you for the taking the time to leave us your feedback. We are pleased to hear you found our facilities and shower blocks excellent but saddened that you do not plan to return to us.

Although we do allow day visitors to enjoy our facilities, we will always prioritise those who are staying onsite, which is helped with our wristband system. We do put a cap on day visitors entering the site in the summer months, and during peak season we have a member of staff directing and monitoring traffic in and out of the park and to the designated check-in and day visitor areas.

We are sorry to hear your stay was not what you were expecting and really hope you will consider returning to Cofton again in the future.

Kind Regards,

Charlotte

Hello Paul,

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review. We are so pleased to hear that you would recommend us to your friends and visit us again.

We apologise for any inconvenience our winter groundworks may have caused you. As Cofton is open year round, we have to take the opportunity to make improvements to the site in the winter season when the site is quieter. We are pleased to hear that you were moved to a more suitable pitch by our staff, as our guest's happiness is our first concern.

We look forward to welcoming you back to Cofton again soon!
