- Woodland Camp for families or Orchard Wagon for couples
- A large tent for families set in a beautiful woodland clearing
- A Shepherd's Hut and Bathing Wagon in an old Orchard for couples
The Wood Life has two units - one private Woodland Camp with a large safari tent sleeps 6 set in its own 8 acre woodland, surrounded by farmland. This is ideal for family groups, there's a treehouse, swing and see saw. Or, for couples we have Orchard Wagon - a Shepherd's hut to sleep in and a bathing wagon for a bath with a view.
Both units are set entirely on their own in different locations near the sleepy Devon village of Kenn. Both camps are very well equipped with everything you need for a hassle free holiday. Bedding, towels, tea, coffee, fresh herbs etc all provided. All you need to bring is some food and your clothes.
The site is located a few miles from the end of the M5, five miles outside Exeter, set between the glorious South Devon beaches and the wilderness of Dartmoor.
For wildlife watching, spending quality family time and getting back to the joys of the great outdoors it's a great escape.
The Travel Editor of The Independent called it 'very close to the perfect camping holiday'.

Many sites set a maximum occupancy of 6/8 people per pitch, so try breaking your booking down into smaller groups to generate more results. For example, if you’re a group of 10, enter 5 people in your initial search and then book 2 pitches.
However, where the pitch or accommodation occupancy allows it, you can make a booking for up to 30 adults and 30 children in one booking.
To book multiple pitches or accommodation, use the 'Special requests' box on the booking page to ask to be sited together. Complete the booking form for the first booking (you can add a password and save your card so that we remember your details). Then click "Make another booking like this" at the top of the confirmation page to make the next booking.
Large groups: check the listing page for any group restrictions set out in the terms and section titled ‘Please note’.
Large tents/caravans: check the restrictions on unit dimensions to ensure your unit is suitable for the space you will be provided with.
