Luxury, peaceful, award-winning and two minutes’ walk from a gorgeous south Devon beach – we can hear boxes being ticked left, right and centre. Quietly, of course, because this is a peaceful park: you won’t find a clubhouse or evening entertainment here either...
Bovisand Lodge Estate near Plymouth has been family-run for over fifty years and has had grateful and chilled-out guests returning to it for generations to soak up its peaceful atmosphere and its views: it’s in a wooden Devon valley running down from Staddon Heights’ hills, with sea views of the Plymouth Breakwater and the Cornish coast. And we did mention that the beach is only two minutes’ walk away? Do that in your bare feet, you could.
The four-star accommodation is in heated and double-glazed holiday homes with luxury bathrooms, and Bovisand Lodge Estate has picked up a Rose Award and a David Bellamy Gold award for its park and environmental standards – time to quietly tick another box…And then another, because there’s a heated indoor pool on site too. Bovisand bliss.

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.

Leave the A38 dual carriageway at the Marsh Mills Junction.
Take the A374 – Plymouth City Centre.
Exit to the A379 Kingsbridge.
Go over the long bridge then take the Plymstock exit.
Continue along Pomphlett Road, to the traffic lights at the crossroads.
Turn right into Dean Cross Road.
Go through the traffic lights signposted Turnchapel and Hooe.
Continue along this road not turning left or right for about 1.5 miles, then bear left into Jennycliffe Lane.
Go through the one -way system then up the hill to Staddon Heights (pylons on hill) and past the golf course.
Drive to the second turning on the right down the hill and signposted Fort Bovisand.
At the car park do a U-turn and take the lower road to Bovisand Lodge Estate.
The safe and clean beach on the edge of Bovisand Lodge Estate overlooks the Plymouth Breakwater and the Cornish coast for miles of walks along the South West Coast Path. For views of both without the walking, Staddons Heights Golf Club is a mile away and welcomes non-residents; horse-riding can be had at Wembury five miles away (where there are also 24 walks in the parish to get around).
Within five minutes’ drive adventurous sorts will find the Mount Batten Centre for watery and landlubber activities; from here hail the water taxi to the Barbican in Plymouth to arrange boat trips around the Sound, to the villages of Kingsands and Cawsands, or along the River Tamar to Royal William Yard and Naval Dockyards.
Plymouth is worth spending at least a day or two in: have your fill of seafood at the Barbican restaurants and take a factory tour of the Plymouth Gin factory, then weave your way the short distance to the city centre and university.
The musts here are too many to mention, but we’d particularly recommend historical the Hoe, the heart of Plymouth and where Sir Francis Drake calmly played bowls while the Spanish Armada approached (there’s a statue of the confident chap on the green). There are sublime views from here across the Sound: climb the steps of the famous red and white Smeaton's Tower lighthouse to see them properly.
Also on our Plymouth wish list would be the National Maritime Museum, exhibitions at the university’s Portland Square campus and a night or two out at the popular Theatre Royal Plymouth, where West End shows often get their first airing. And if you’re finding the weather just a bit too warm or you want to do something a bit different, skate along to Plymouth Ski and Snowboard Centre, with three slopes and a 650-metre toboggan run.
In Plymouth during August? Lucky you – go along to the famed fireworks at the annual British Firework Championships.
