“There is nowhere better nor friendlier in Britain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2011

Stayed here in April 2010 and again in September 2010 because we enjoyed it so much. A close friend of mine goes on holiday to Norfolk every year and to the same park and i questioned him as to why and what the point was revisiting the same place year on year. Having stayed at Woodovis i now know why. All i ask when i go on holiday is that my unit is cleaned to a standard i expect, the park is well kept and quiet and that the staff are friendly and available if you need them. Woodovis and their team of dedicated staff do not disappoint. I have on numerous occasions driven for 5 or 6 hours from my home in Derbyshire to holiday parks in the West Country only to feel my heart sink when i arrived. At Woodovis you feel relieved. The staff are really passionate about their park and are only too happy to help. The caravans and park are impeccably kept and peace and quiet in the devonshire countryside is guaranteed. The only noise that you can hear at night is the bleating of the sheep which makes you really feel that you are in the countryside. The only slight negative was the temperature of the pool. I got in and it was like swimming in the north sea. Needless to say my young daughter just couldn't handle the cold. I found it really uncomfortable but managed a few lengths. Do not let that put you off taking a holiday here however, it is a hidden gem and i am hoping to go back again in september. Woodovis is a special place and i love it!

I was looking for a few days peace and quiet, to get away from it all and walk with my dog. I found everything I was looking for and more at Woodovis park. In particular as a lone female traveller, I felt safe and secure and was very impressed by the friendliness of all the staff. Highly recommend.

Stayed in the cottage with our 6 month old daughter in April 2011. Cottage had everything we needed including a travel cot and highchair.
Park has a lovely swimming pool and grounds are all well maintained and clean. The park is quiet and peaceful and the staff are all friendly.
Fantastic location for exploring Devon and Cornwall!
