General

  • Award-winning site a mile from the beach
  • Pools, pub, fish and chip shop, sauna, steam room and gym
  • Five private fishing lakes: bag a 24-pounder

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, and only a mile away from swathes of Blue Flag beaches, Cofton Country Holidays has 80 glorious acres of meadows, orchards and woodland laced with tranquil nature trails for visitors to explore.

Cofton's indoor pool has massage jets and hydrotherapy bubble loungers, as well as a sauna, steam room and gym. A splash area with water jets will entertain the children (a small additional charge applies to the pool, sauna, steam room and gym).

With five private fishing lakes to choose from, there are abundant opportunities to bag a monster carp: 24-pounders are not unknown (an EA rod licence is required plus a fishing permit from reception).

Water babies of all ages will enjoy the heated outdoor swimming pools; after some aquatic exertions, you can 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. Cofton also has its very own fish and chip joint, as well as a shop for any vittles you might need.

Children 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.

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.

    Liked the location, surrounded by private woodlands owned by Crofton. Lovely site very well kept, very clean shower facilities and plenty of them. Very big but still quiet. Good facilities all round. Had read that the shop was expensive but we did nt think it was and it has a range of everything a camper could need. Would definitely stay here again, lovely site for all ages.

    Lovely site and facilities. The food in the restaurant and swan pub was great and the swimming facilities too. All in all a great site but grass pitches are very boggy.

    Disliked: 

    Nobody should have gone on a grass pitch the week we went down as they had down pours the week before . We were put on mud not grass.The pitches were waterlogged, and they would not move people to hardstanding pitches when they were vacant. We appreciate you cannot predicted the weather.

    We did not like the separate toilets and showers and there was not heating in them.

  • Liked: 

    pitch was enormous.some people had trouble pitching up because of the slopes, but we got there early and was able to find a fairly level one. toilets were always spotlessly clean and constant hot water. no having to wait to take a shower. liked the private washing cubicles. would liked to have been a few more lights around the camp to go back to caravan after the bar shut.

    Disliked: 

    shop could have stocked more food items and less toys. food was expensive in the restuarant.

Local attractions

Wandering just outside the site, the nearby clifftops have pretty walks; there are gentle bike rides around and about; plus beaches and waterways offering more sail-, paddle- and wave-powered action than you can shake a stick at.

Hop on a bus (the stop’s only 100m away) to explore a bit further afield. This corner of Devon is jampacked with things to see and do, including castles, botanic gardens, zoos, aquariums, animal farms, model villages and adventure parks.

Whether it’s the brutal beauty of Dartmoor, the bucolic splendour of England’s highest waterfall, Canonteign Falls, or the attractive bustle of Exeter and Exmouth, there's something for everyone...
