  • Relaxing park on the Devon/Cornwall border
  • Heated indoor pool, spa and therapy cabin
  • A variety of pop-up kitchens and bars throughout high season
It’s a stonkingly safe bet that any site listed as having an ‘infrared therapy cabin’ is going to be one where you can relax and get away from it all. Woodovis Park, set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on the Devon/Cornwall border, has this in spades: relaxed but with Devon delights just on the doorstep, no road noise, splendid beaches within easy reach, plenty of active options nearby, a heated indoor pool and spa on site, and, the topping on the Devonshire cake – fresh bread, croissants and pain au chocolat all baked daily for the licensed on-site shop. Activities on site include archery, waterwalking, visits from international storyteller Clive PiG once a week during school holidays, and twice-weekly circus skills workshops in high season. A wood-chipped play area and games room are there for the small people, as well as a nature trail, outdoor table tennis and a pétanque court to ping about on. Dogs will also have a barkingly good time here, as Woodovis is dog-friendly and has a dedicated dog walking area as well as Lower Meadow, the site's ‘specially for pups’ field where pooches can run off the lead. (There’s a dog-wash area on site too, although perhaps tails won’t be wagging too much at that.) Facilities at this safe, family-friendly and environmentally-friendly park include a free wifi zone in the games room and chargeable wifi available throughout, twinklingly clean loos and free hot showers, a parent and baby washroom, a launderette and – blessedly – a bath for soaks in blissful solitude. An additional individual toilet is in the Tamar View Field. A traditional pub with good food is around half a mile’s walk away, but if you don't want to stray that far, a variety of pop-up kitchens and bars are available on site throughout high season. But back to that therapy cabin. The infrared rays here are used as part of a targeted deep heat treatment to warm the back’s blood vessels – soothe all your non-holiday stresses here before splashing about in the heated pool with the family or taking in a bit more relaxation in the spa room. Well, you can never have too much relaxing…

Tamar-View electric gravel pitch

Liked: Very clean site, helpful staff, great swimming pool, take your table tennis bats with you.

Disliked: Not much in the way of buying hot meals, snack shack is the only hot food option but the food was great, restricted opening times though. No main bus stops so if you don't have a car options are limited.

Tamar-View electric gravel pitch

Liked: Best showers I have come across in 15 years of using sites in the UK and abroad - actual hot and cold taps to control the flow and temperature! The motorhome service point was well laid out and easy to use, and included an air pump for tyres and EV charging point. Very friendly and helpful staff. Well stocked shop with a licence!

Disliked: The booking didn't make it clear that the Tamar View pitches are not very close to the showers, but that may be a Pitch Up issue.

Tamar-View electric gravel pitch

Liked: Everything about this site was fantastic. Friendly staff, wonderful facilities all immaculately kept. Shop was well stocked. Pitches were well spaced with hedges between so there was privacy for all. Lovely walks through the site woods and playground was very well looked after. Pool looked lovely although we didn't use it. We were super impressed with the eco credentials of the site - fabulous 👌. Will definitely keep on my favourites list and visit again.

Local attractions

First on your must-do list should be a trip to nearby Tavistock, market town and home of the cream tea; browse around the regular farmers’ markets to pick up the best Devonshire produce. To walk all that food off, you’re only a short drive from Dartmoor with its walking, cycling and horse riding trails, or other active options including tree-surfing and canoeing are nearby. Those for whom a holiday wouldn’t be complete without a trip to the beach will be in sandy heaven, with some of the best beaches in the country easily reachable by car: bounce around the rock pools at Bovisand, get sand between your toes at Seaton, or explore the several small beaches at Talland Bay. For historical highlights, the National Trust’s Castle Drogo has gardens and a gorgeous view over the Teign Gorge. Or have a go at family walks and bike rides at Plymbridge, a look at Sir Francis Drake’s former home Buckland Abbey, or a visit to Dartmoor’s Lydford Gorge, the deepest in the south west and with a waterfall 30 metres high.
