Pitches

General

  • Smart family-run park within Woodbury Common
  • Easy drive into Exeter
  • Excellent facilities including bar, bistro and play area

They say an Englishman’s (motor)home is his castle – so when choosing where to brake, you’ll want a spot fit for a king. Castle Brake Holiday Park in east Devon should pass muster: it’s a smart, family-run park within the heathland of Woodbury Common, ideally placed for an invasion of Exeter and the sought-after sands of the Jurassic Coast.

The facilities are splendid: a spotless, cedar-clad amenities block with underfloor heating and family bathrooms; a laundry room; the Castle Inn bar and restaurant for homemade nosh using local ingredients (takeaways are also available); a new play area added in 2018; and ample space for a peaceful stroll and a bit of wildlife spotting. (Please note that the bar and restaurant is not open every evening during low season.)

Castle Brake Holiday Park is within walking distance of the village of Woodbury, which has a handful of good pubs and shops, or it’s an easy ride into Exeter for anything else you might need.

    Really enjoyed a short stay at Castle Drake and we will definitely be returning for longer next time. Lovely spacious pitches in beautiful surroundings.

  • Liked: 

    The motorhome pitches were excellent. The facilities at this time of year were always readily available, lots of toilets/showers and other usual facilities.
    The site is very large so might get a bit busy during the summer holidays/half term.
    Is in a very good location for touring around, we drove to Exeter and went on the BR train to Paignton, and then to Dartmouth via the steam train. A very nice course next door if you are a golfer.
    Excellent check in and info pack provided.
    A very nice part of the world.

    Nothing for us to dislike.

Or try the World of Country Life, which has a petting zoo, indoor and outdoor rides and slides, vintage steam engines, museums and events as eclectic as welly wanging and the six nations ferret races...
