General

  • Relaxing park on the Devon/Cornwall border
  • Heated indoor pool, spa and therapy cabin
  • Regular hog roasts throughout the year

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, beautiful 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 chocolate all baked daily for the on-site licensed 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 is 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, twinkingly 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 takeaway hog roast is available on site on Monday and Wednesday evenings throughout the year, serving local meat, fresh bread, and handmade sauces.

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…

    What a fantastic place for a family holiday. Wardens on the site were wonderful, every one when out of their way to have a chat and seemed genuinely interested in our family and where we were from. They were also really helpful, directing us to a five star gastropub (The Cornish Arms in Tavistock) and keeping us fed with tasty home baked pain au chocolat and baguettes for breakfast!

    The site facilities are second to none, with pristine shower facilities and everything you need for a home away from home. The shop has everything you could need, this solved a few problems for us including replacing a broken mallet, replacing our melted butter (doh), our need for wine and various other grocery and camping requirements.

    The swimming pool was great for the kids as was the park and games areas where they could run free. Entertainment came in the form or a super storyteller who kept our 4 year old engaged for a good half hour and a circus skills workshop.

    A hog roast was a real food highlight, a gent turned up in a van and filled us up for the night - the ‘Jail Ale Chutney’ was a revelation! We picked some up in the local farm shop (please visit, lovely people and sausage rolls to die for). Breakfast rolls on our first morning was a very welcome treat.

    You cannot go wrong at Woodovis Park, plenty to do but a they have managed to strike a great balance where the park is quiet at the right times so you can get much needed rest. Unless you have a one and four-year old 😀

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 gorge-ous 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.
