Reviewed June 25, 2014

We have just returned from Woodovis and I can honestly say its the best park I have stayed at.

The setting is lovely and the place is so peaceful and relaxing. It also really handy for Dartmoor, which only takes about 20 minutes to drive to. The grounds are immaculate and the toilets and showers are spotless. the park is great for kids. We took our daughter and she spent most of her time in the playground with the other kids. Although we didnt use it, there is a games room with pool, table football and air hockey. We did use the indoor pool quite a bit which was a nice feature.

The best thing about the park was the the staff. Everyone was so friendly and helpful, it really made our stay.

We stayed in a campervan with hook up but next time we go we are going to book one of the wooden pods they look really cool.

All in all I couldn't fault Woodovis its in a great location the staff are amazing, there's lots of things for the kids and it wasnt too expensive.

We stayed at Woodovis in the 2nd week in June. We had an excellent time, from the moment we arrived the staff couldn't have been more helpful. The facilities are spotless and have everything you could need.

There are lots of activities to do in the surrounding area, we can recommend The Tamar Trails for mountain biking.

We had a great time & will definitely be back next year - hopefully for longer.

Where do I start with this review.....We stayed here in April for nearly 3 weeks due to my dad becoming very poorly while on holiday in Devon. Due to it being near the holidays lots of places were booked up and at the short notice we gave woodovis they managed to accommodate myself my husband my 5 yr old daughter and 6 other adults over the 3 weeks. Due to the nature of my dad's illness we all travelled from Manchester in the clothes we were stood up in we had nothing with us and the staff here were lovely they provided us with towels and other little bits to help us but the most important thing the staff here did was treat my little girl so wonderfully they made a fuss of her....kept her occupied with different activities and the fact they have the pool on site helped even More....she felt like she was just on holiday and when we came back from the hospital at night time she was able to tell us all what she had been doing that day!. The staff took so much pressure off us as we didn't have to worry about accommodation... at very short notice we would tell them we needed extra nights and they always accomadated. The staff here went above and beyond to help me and my family and this Is something we will never ever forget and something we are very grateful for. I cannot recommend this site enough it's beautiful very clean and very peaceful with everything you need on it. But what makes this site stand out head and shoulders above others is the staff.... they are wonderful. So if staff are reading this thankyou from the bottom of our hearts for everything we hope to see you all again soon under better circumstances.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write such a beautiful review. We only wish we could do more for your family, but your wee girl is just such a joy, it was a true pleasure to make a bit of a fuss of her! Wishing you all the very, very best.

This was our 3rd time visiting woodovis and it gets better and better each time. As soon as you go through the gates you instantly relax and get a sense of a beautiful luxury and peaceful campsite. The pretty driveway and the neatly pitched tents are so welcoming but not as welcoming as the staff! Always with a smile on their faces and a spring in their step they all have a lovely way of making you feel special and remember the little details and try and get to know you. We stayed in the tipi last time and the pod the time before that but after seeing the super pod bathed in sunshine on arrival we instantly upgraded from the normal pod (in the shade). I must admit the tv put me off having the super pod but the sun and the gorgeous veranda won us over. The fold down bed was also a god send, much comfier than an air bed. So much so we slept in til 10am!!! This trip was also the first time we used the site, the pool was great and the jacuzzi and infra red sauna hit the spot! The power showers are so luxurious and the little extras like moisturiser and body wash just make you feel spoil. The fresh baked bread is a must in the morning and is so reasonably priced.
A visit to lydford gorge (8 miles away) should be on the top of the list of things to do! The best national trust place we have ever visited. Combining a lovely walk, pretty river views and waterfalls along with cream tea = Perfect holiday trip! (Although not recommended for small kids due to rocky and narrow paths)
Thanks to everyone at woodovis, can't wait to see you all again next year, hopefully for a longer stay :)
Pros = loving the new field toilet!
Minor minor minor point = maybe a hook or two for wet coats inside the pod?

I visited with with my children and wife we had a fantastic time here. If you are looking for luxury toilet facilities then this is the place. They were spotless and very spacious. The site it self is very clean and quite. The playground is great and the shop,has all your essentials. The swimming pool is lovely. The staff were wonderful very helpful land nothing is too much. We will be going back.

Lovely site away from town but not too far to pop too!. Attention to detail is taken with great care to the washing rack with the sinks to a TV in the Superpod and a lengthy manual of the area and it's history supplied on the table. Really nice wardens and the Hog roast one evening.
The indoor pool was a treat, the only thing is I had to walk in my towel to the toilet block around the corner to shower and the cleaning lady half way through my shower came in and was a bit off when I asked her to close the door due to the draft it created when I was drying off.
...So be aware when the shop and toilet closing times are, that is all that let it down!

Thank you for posting your review Georgia, we're so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in the Super Pod. Sorry about your shower clashing with cleaning times, it's hectic trying to get them all cleaned thoroughly in the publicised 'closed' time, especially when we're really busy at Half Term.

if you would love to have a thoughtful, clean, friendly and helpful holiday. We've stayed at this site twice before and it just gets better. Helen, Tony, Jo, Steve, Angy and Andy were all wonderful hosts with nothing too much trouble and they keep the site as if it were their own! Fresh, warm pastries in the morning that are baked on site, spotless showers and toilets, indoor swimming pool, jacuzzi and fantastic woods to walk through. There is a 10pm 'be courteous to your neighbours' rule which is super helpful when you have a 2.5 year old who still needs to be in bed at a decent time and besides, this is the place to relax rather than be loud and party all night! Woodovis has made it very hard for us to choose elsewhere with our very first camping experience there and now we know the team and they know us, it feels safe and such an easy choice to come back to. With our last day today we will savour every moment until our next visit!!!!
