General

  • Well-equipped tent designed for families set in its own woodland.

The Wood Life is a very private woodland camp set in its own 8 acre woodland, surrounded by farmland. The Tent sleeps six people and is 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.

There is only one unit in the woodland, so you have total privacy. 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'.
