With more and more people choosing to take a staycation here in the UK, we know how important it is to offer a holiday experience that you’ll never forget. We’ve been welcoming families to our patch of glorious Devon for over 40 years now, and we think we know a thing or two about making holidays extra special. From our first class facilities, top notch entertainment and cosy accommodation, we’ll do everything we can to ensure you leave us as happy campers with memories to last a lifetime.
Whether it’s getting back to nature or indulging in something more luxurious, here at Cofton you’ll find an accommodation choice to suit every family and budget. From camping and sleeping out under the stars or touring in the comfort of your own motorhome, we have a range of pitches that are ideal for staying with us at any time of the year. With pitches that include electric hook-up, water and waste connections you can even bring all your creature comforts.
For a home from home experience, our holiday cottages provide the perfect base for a self-catering holiday from which to explore Devon. Our modern, spacious and stylish holiday homes are just a short walk from all of our amazing facilities. And with 2 or 3 bedroom options available there’s room for the whole family. If it’s luxury you crave, look no further that our lodges. Introduced in 2020 and finished to the highest standards, our lodges come complete with a hot tub on the decking where you can enjoy some of the best Devon views whilst sipping on a glass of something bubbly.
We even have dog friendly accommodation to get your tail wagging because it wouldn’t be a proper family holiday without your four-legged friends as well.
Just a short drive off the M5 motorway, we are easy to reach but feel a million miles away. Just breathe in that fresh Devon air. Set within 80 acres, including our own private woodland, the park is surrounded by beautiful Devon countryside and is in a prime location to explore and discover the best that Devon has to offer. With stunning beaches just a short walk away, the Exe Estuary Cycle Trail and the South West Costal Path right on our doorstep, there is so much space to enjoy when you stay at Cofton.
Easily accessible by road, rail and bike, the historic city of Exeter is just 12 miles away. Here, you can shop till you drop, sample the delights of the many bars and restaurants or simply soak up the history.
The sweeping landscapes of Dartmoor are a short drive away. One of the last great wildernesses of the UK, there are castle ruins and museums, myths and legends to learn all about and even a zoo to visit.

5-Star Holiday Park
We’ve been the go-to holiday park of happy campers who choose to come back again and again for over 40 years. In 2019 we were awarded the prestigious 5-star holiday park rating by Visit England in recognition of our outstanding facilities, making us one of the only holiday parks in the region and the only holiday park in Dawlish to hold Visit England’s top-quality mark.
At Cofton we believe that the little things can make a big difference, which is why we are continually investing in environmentally friendly projects and making the park as sustainable as possible. This includes placing solar panels on roof of our lodges and the main complex to generate our own electricity as well as a biomass boiler that uses locally sourced woodchip to generate heat and electricity for our main leisure complex as well heating our swimming pools and water for some of our shower blocks.
As well as our holiday guests, we also like to welcome wildlife to our park. By introducing wildlife corridors and rewilding some of the grass verges and hedgerows with native species and wildflowers to attract pollinating insects, even the bees and butterflies at Cofton are happy campers.
