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.

    It was our first holiday after the civil wedding, aka ''honey-moon'' ;-)
    our requirements were
    1) a place within the UK
    2) a place within a forest
    3) a cabin to accomodate
    all these were fulfilled by 'the churchwood valley' holiday cabins.
    the wembury beach near the cabins was a bonus
    and 'No-Mobile Network Area' was the jackpot :)
    we both felt like we're in a different world, Just me and her
    we walked together, sang together, danced together, cooked together, laughed together. those 3nights stay at Churchwood Valley still give goose bumps when we recall the memories,
    very friendly staff in all way, go with enough food (cooked or raw) so that you dont have to go back to the town for shopping, essentials are available at the shop in the valley (i expected premium pricing but surprisingly not) so people if you want to forget the world for few days, forget the vehicle noice, throw away the mobile phone, stay away from social media and get a true experience of life in the nature, then this is the right holiday spot.
    Read the property description very carefully so that you wont be disappointed.
    We've decided to visit here every summer. !
    Thank You so much team Churchwood valley,
    and Team PitchUp ! keep up the good work
    keep us inspiring ! All the best !!
    Praga & Mythily

From the manager...

Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review, we are very glad you enjoyed your stay! As you mentioned the WiFi in the cabins is not free although it is in and around the main building. The reason for this is that due to the woodland setting and the topography of the valley, installing and maintaining a working system has proved to be very costly. However, we do aim to make this service free in the fullness of time. Once again, thanks for your review.

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.
