Action Packed Half Term Fun in Devon
07 February 2017
The February Half-Term is approaching fast and we want to tell you about ALL the super places you can visit from Cofton Holidays… Ready? Deep breath…
Pack those sturdy walking boots and head for the hills… the beautiful Dartmoor is home to some iconic Tors and also scenic sights such as Castle Drogo and Whiddon Deer Park!
What’s that coming over the hill? Is it a Gruffalo? Haldon Forest Park’s Gruffalo hunting expeditions are the quickest way to explore the epic trails Haldon has to offer.
Paignton Zoo are celebrating the launch of Cold Blooded Creatures – new for 2017. There’ll be special walks, trails and appearances by Cuba the Croc mascot!
And if that’s not enough… head over to Living Coasts, Paignton’s partner zoo and catch their Beside the Seaside! There’s a Shipwreck Trail, Puppet Show and LOTS more activities!
There’s plenty to do at Pennywell Farm! With Paco Drom, Elfic the Jester and Matt Pang there’ll be juggling, magic, circus skills, balloons, games, prizes and crazy comedy you’ll be glad of the FREE return ticket!
And whilst you’re at Haldon Forest, you might as well hire a bike and try out the mountain biking trails… don’t worry, every level is catered for – whether you’re a budding Bradley Wiggins or a casual freewheeler.
If that hasn’t tired you out, head to Saddles and Paddles on Exeter’s historic quayside. You can hire either a canoe or a bike… either way you’re going to be getting spectacular and memorable views of the River Exe!
The medieval cathedral city of Exeter is steeped in history and charm. Did you know you can get a FREE red coat tour which covers everything you need to know about this curious place?
The Royal Albert Memorial Museum has recently reopened and there’s lots happening this half term! Check out the Little Explorer Classes (under 5s) and Animation techniques and special effects workshops (8+).
The Indoor Clip and Climb climbing wall on Exeter Quay is a must do! And children from as young as 4 can have a go!
It goes without saying that the Indoor Pool and Soft Play at Cofton Holiday Park is a super way to splash around and relax if the skies are a little dingy outside… In addition, we have some legendary entertainment lined up!
Something to tire them out…
We’ve got several great adventure parks lurking just around the corner from us…
Crealy Adventure Park lays the other side of Exeter and with over 60 rides and attractions PLUS a massive indoor play area it’s a must do for those with some energy to burn! Have a look at their Fab Feb giveaway
Alternatively, you can head in the other direction and pay a visit to Woodlands Family Theme Park. During February Half-Term you can get a FREE child return ticket for their Super Hero and Princesses themed week!
If you’ve still got time, then make sure you head to Diggerland where both adults and children get the chance to ride and drive Diggers plus much more! With half price tickets there’s no better time to get down there and get digging.
The 12th February sees Super Sunday return to Exeter Racecourse. If you haven’t experienced the thrill of the races, make sure you do it! With pre-booked tickets costing just £15 and children free, there’s no better time to try it!
There’s a lot of buzz around Teignmouth at the moment! Not only was Colin Firth’s 2017 film The Mercy filmed their but this quintessential seaside town has enjoyed something of a renaissance recently. With a historic and fabulous pier, dinosaur crazy golf and huge play park you can see why we do like to be beside the seaside!
Some of your kind words...
A brilliant stay as always. We stayed in a cottage this time which was beautiful and very well equipped. Lots of lovely little touches with a welcome hamper and lots of board games. Hubbie was well impressed with the huge TV too. Loved the courtyard and we were lucky enough to have the weather to BBQ 2 of the days. All the staff from reception to the shop to the entertainment were friendly and very accommodating of both my girls. Used the chippy which has recently changed hands and the food was still great. There is lots to do, loved the swimming, the zip wire, the park and walk in the woods and around the fishing lake. Have to be honest though we missed the caravan...... will definitely be back, hopefully in the Fernworthy van with the hot tub.
Had an amazing weeks holiday. The park was immaculate, the outdoor pool was spotless and the cleaning blocks were cleaned regularly. All the staff were very helpful and the shop on site was reasonably priced. We went with two kids (aged 6 and 7) and our dog, the kids were never bored and had an amazing holiday. We will definitely be returning next year!
My family and I stayed for 5 nights in July, aged between 13 and 40 and we all had a brilliant family stay. The teenagers loved the outdoor pool and the woods and we all loved the donkeys. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and it’s still got a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has all the facilities you could want for a camping holiday. I must say the fish and chip shop is the best we have ever had at a holiday park, reasonable prices and good sized portions. We have booked to come back again on 25th August for a week and can’t wait!
I visited when my relatives came over from Canada and fell in love. I was lucky enough to stay for a week last August for my sons 2nd birthday. It has got to be one of my favourite places to go. Absolutely beautiful, quiet, good facilities, lovely restaurants. The staff are outstanding. I can't wait to come back again this year!
Stayed in campervan for a weekend. Great campsite good location, plenty of things for all to do. Great fishing lakes all in a short walk through the woodland to the lovely Dawlish Warren and Dawlish. Couldn't fault.
Highbridge, United Kingdom
We have had a wonderful experience, the site is very clean, ALL the staff were friendly and helpful especially the bar supervisor, entertainment was second to none, we'll 100% return...
The Warren Family
I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.
The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
Delicious fish and chips, friendly and helpful staff and delightful woodland.

We usually camp 3 times a year and hire a caravan after the Christmas break at Cofton, and will continue to do so. We thoroughly recommend staying there. Great for families or just the 2 of you.

Go for swimming and food at this fabulous holiday camp... facilities A-star so clean and just great value for money would defo use over and over again which I do.... I'm a regular visitor. Dip and dine always good option as the food and snacks are fantastic in the bar cafe area near swimming pool!

The superbly equipped Woodside Cottage was beautifully clean with a fantastic Hot Tub. Waking up to horses and cows in the rear field.. stunning!
So friendly and clean, it’s a home from home and we couldn’t go a year with a visit!

‘Wonderful facilities, especially the swimming pools! In a lovely setting, for us it is simply the best campsite we have found.’

We have been coming to Cofton since 2009 and have stayed at least 12 times. We love everything about Cofton: the location and scenery in and around the park, the quality and cleanliness of accommodation, the friendly welcoming atmosphere; Everything about Cofton is great!
