Good news! It’s time for Easter eggs hunts, hot cross buns and gorgeous flowers blooming in every corner.

This is perfect if you want to travel a little further afield to discover this stunning part of the region…

Explore the previous life of a Victorian housekeeper and how they spring-cleaned the castle – you’ll get the chance to test this for yourself!
Not to mention there’s a handful of Easter activities to get involved with! Have cuddles with adorable lambs, embark on scenic country walks on Easter Egg trails and make some tasty chocolate nests to take home with you. (If they last that long!)
World of Country Life
Besides the ever so exciting daily activities at the World of Country Life including Deer Train Safari, Hunters of the Sky Flying Display and Small Animal Handling, this outdoor family attraction has a packed activity schedule ready for the Easter Holidays.
Across the Easter weekend expect special arts and crafts sessions, a visit from Silly Minis (decorated Mini cars!) and an Easter Egg Trail – hunt for the hidden eggs for your chance to win a prize! The Easter fun at World of Country Life starts on 30th March and ends of 13th April.
Egg-o-Saurus Dino Egg Hunt
Is your little explorer obsessed with dinosaurs? During your visit to this glorious corner of Devon save time for a trip to Crealy Adventure for their Eggo-Saurus Dino Hunt!

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.

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.

The superbly equipped Woodside Cottage was beautifully clean with a fantastic Hot Tub. Waking up to horses and cows in the rear field.. stunning!

‘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!
