Looking ahead to a joyful June and smashing summer holidays…
25 May 2017
With half term fast approaching and the summer holidays not far behind, we’re looking forward! We’ve got a JAM-packed (this will make sense later…) schedule full of fun, frolics and food.
With things beginning to hot up at Cofton, we’re delighted to announce the outdoor pool will be reopening on Friday 26th May. Are you going to join us for a few relaxing lengths in the sunshine, or for our fantastic dip and dine? Either way we can’t wait to see you. Take a sneak peek of the pool via our 360 degree photo on Facebook…
If you fancy sampling one of the finest Devonshire traditions, why not join us for National Cream Tea Day on Friday June 30th. At Amelia’s Pantry we have luscious crumbly scones, complete with thick cream and locally sourced, flavoursome jam. Where else would you want to be?
And what better way to end a relaxing day at Cofton by sampling our on park entertainment. We’ve got a whole host of acts lined up in June for your viewing pleasure. Every Thursday, our very own entertainment manager, Mark Antony will be stepping up to the stage. Mark has a wealth of experience performing in a variety of locations all over the world. These experiences have afforded him the time to refine his act, so get ready for side splitting comedy.
We also have the most authentic Olly Murs tribute act out there. He has the voice, the moves, the looks… He even has the hat! Don’t miss this if you’re an Olly Murs fan, or even just an X-Factor fan!
What about the local area?
We’ve also been marvelling at the local Dawlish Arts Festival, which is certain to showcase plenty of local craft and talent. The festival will be in its 65th year and will present all the things that make Dawlish and the surrounding area a wonderful place to live. The festival will start on 27th May and finish on 3rd June.
We’re also pleased to confirm that Dawlish Warren has kept it’s blue flag status for the 19th year in a row! This means lots of things. Blue Flag status is awarded to beaches that meet the stringent criteria of water quality, safety, environmental education and information. The blue flag is sought after by many tourism operators as it’s a worldwide indicator of high environmental and quality standards.
A bit further up the road, there is so much going on. Our personal pick is the pop up cinema at the Double Locks, which will offer a bit of nostalgia to your trip. Luckily for you, Double Locks is set up as one of our recommended coastal walks/cycling routes. Take a look at the Turf Locks cycle trail if you fancy discovering our wonderful line of coast en route to the pop up cinema.
There’s also something going on a little bit down the road, too. The wonderful Torbay Air Show is a true spectacle. There will be a breathtaking display programme over the bay, including the world famous red arrows. The best views will be available in the heart of the bay at Paignton Green, where there will also be exhibitors and traders on both days of the air show. This is one not to miss, being one of the most popular family days out in Devon for the whole year. Make sure to arrive early to get the best view… Blink and you could miss it, these planes are rapid.
There’s so much going on here. Did we even mention the luscious weather? We’re expecting temperatures approaching 22/23 degrees in June. Take a look at our holiday cottages in Devon and plan your perfect getaway.
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.

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