General

  • Woodland wildlife haven a short stroll from the beach at Wembury
  • Hillside cabins among greenery, trees and colourful flowers
  • Licensed shop selling food, drinks, gifts and beach equipment

A wooded valley short walk from a sandy beach, cabins among greenery in a hillside wildlife haven, and a secluded setting that's still close to coast and city... blessed peace and spectacular scenery reigns at Churchwood Valley in south Devon.

It's only seven miles to lively Plymouth from these colourful grounds, but Churchwood Valley is peaceful and remote, in a wooded valley running down to the sea and sandy beach of Wembury 10 minutes' walk away. You can access the South West Coast Path from Wembury, which is a nifty base for days out around Devon, Cornwall and Dartmoor.

Accommodation is in luxury cabins, among thick foliage on the hillside. Each cabin has its own spacious area, surrounded by trees, colourful flowers, shrubs and hedges: you'll spot birds aplenty here without even stirring outside, and more wildlife including foxes and squirrels from the private patio.

The park has no bars, restaurants or noisy entertainment, just a secluded and serene south Devon setting. Even so, you don't have to venture far for supplies, as the Churchwood team runs a well-stocked licensed shop selling eats, drinks and beach kit. A launderette is also on site.

Peaceful, private, lovely cabins in the wood & the sea nearby.25/09/2019

    My wife and dog and I absolutely loved our stay at Churchwood Valley. This was our first time here and it all exceeded our expectations. It was above all beautifully peaceful. No noise. Just the sound of the breeze rustling the trees and the waves breaking down at the beach. Our cabin was clean, comfortable and very private. We barely saw anyone during our stay. It was lovely to see the wildlife on our terrace and the birds on the bird table. What a lovely walk down the valley to the beach. We spent most of our days on the beaches west of Wembury as we had our dog with us and sadly there are dog restrictions on Wembury Beach, though not everyone observes them. My wife went for a swim on Wembury on our last night and said it was one of the most beautiful beach swims she's had in her life. Thank you all at Churchwood Valley. We do hope we can get back again next year.

    I hate the narrow lanes and rather awkward manoeuvres I had to do to get our car into the parking bay but once parked we forgot about using the car again until we left.

    Peaceful woodland location, old chestnut trees, olny few minutes walk to the wembury beach. Cabin bulilded from wooden planks was worm ( it was only 10 degrees at night) and breathable no sign of dump. Furniture was quite dated but cabin was spotless. All essentials included. Mattresses were
    firm and comfy. We would come back again

    Disliked: 

    no phone signal, very low water pressure in the kitchen taps

  • 1 bedroom cabin (twin)
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    We loved the location. It was unique and beautiful and more than made up for some of the inconveniences that would need to be accepted by guests, Each cabin was private and not overlooked , the wildlife , birdsong and countryside were all around you and for a stay here you definitely felt part of the environment. Absolutely ideal for people with dogs and for those who enjoyed the countryside.
    In our view the lack of any close at hand man-made entertainment , like pubs , clubhouses , or shops was for the better and not the worse. The cabins , provided adequate basic facilities and everything worked.

    Disliked: 

    We did not like the fact that we could not get a signal on our telephones but that had to be accepted. Additionally we did not like the fact that WI-FI was available but at an additional cost. We have never experienced this in our travels and I would recommend that the site increases costs but offers free WI-FI as this is now an expectation of travellers generally. We also think that the site should emphasise to potential guests that it is best suited to those who prefer to stay at home in the evenings - the narrow lanes , lack of lighting and general remoteness make using a car after dark pretty daunting - it did not bother us but it might others!

    De ligging is fantastisch, optimale privacy midden in de natuur.

    Disliked: 

    De ruimte was te klein voor vijf personen, de douche was uitermate slecht. De watervoorziening was sowieso slecht in het huisje. De bedden waren slecht, veren die in je lijf prikten. Het huisje was wel netjes schoon, maar echt aan modernisering toe.

Directions


From Plymouth city or the A38 at Marsh Mills head towards Kingsbridge or Plymstock on the A379. You will drive across a bridge over the Plym river. After the bridge, continue to the fourth roundabout where the Elburton Inn is located and turn right. Turn left at the first set of traffic lights onto Reservoir Road.

Look out for the Coop garage on your right and turn right just before it. When you arrive at a T-junction next to The Staddy club, turn left. After just over 1 mile of country lanes you will come to a sharp 90 degree lefthand bend (slow down for this). Just after this the road forks, take the left hand fork and then carry straight on with The Langdon Court Hotel to your left. After about half a mile ther is a large wooden Churchwood Valley sign, turn left here. After 400 yards turn right into Churchwood Valley.

Local attractions

It's less than a mile from the valley to Wembury beach on Devon's south coast, a stretch of sand famed for its rockpools and wildlife. Join in with a Rockpool Ramble from the Wembury Marine Centre for the best chances of seeing maximum rockpool species: crabs, starfish and sea scorpions are among the critters to see here.

Hikes and coastal rambles are easily accessed too, including the Wembury Strandline walk between Wembury beach and Wembury Point, for spectacular views over the sea and out to the Great Mewstone; the maritime walk around Wembury Point, and the craggy run from Wembury beach to Heybrook Bay. For a woodland wander, take the Wembury Woods trail from the village car park.

For day trips, Churchwood Valley is a 20-minute drive from Plymouth, 30 minutes from Dartmoor, and 50 minutes from both Woodlands Family Theme Park and Paignton Zoo.
