Dog Friendly Holidays Top Tips:

  • Don’t forget to bring your doggy essentials including food, treats and toys – don’t worry if you forget though as our on site shop has a good selection of supplies.
  • Please ensure you bring a lead for your pet. Dogs must be kept on a lead while on site.
  • We have plenty of doggy bins around the site so please bring your poop scoop and pick up after your pet.
  • We have a handy dog walking field adjacent to the site located next to Cofton Church – ideal for a short comfort break for your pet.
  • With numerous routes for ‘walkies’ in the immediate vicinity, there’s no shortage of opportunities to let off the leash and explore!

Our recommendations for the perfect walkies:

  • A woodland walk through our Eastdon Estate – plenty of paths to explore with superb views over the Exe Estuary. There are often deer around so dogs should be kept on a lead.
  • A walk along Dawlish Warren beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round past groyne 3, they are allowed on the beach up to groyne 3 only from 1st October to 31st March. For full details please check out this guide.
  • A circular walk around Cockwood Village. Walk down to the harbour up Cofton Hill and then back down into the back of the park, either through the public footpaths or our own trails through the woods at the top of Cofton Hill, or through the gate at the back of the park.
  • Take a stroll towards Powderham along the Exe Estuary trail.
  • A short drive away is The Obelisk at the top of Mamhead where parking is free and you can either do a short or long loop. The Obelisk itself gives amazing views down across the valley below.
  • Our own Dog Walking Field is the perfect place for your companions to stretch their legs! Located next to the Main Site, it’s ideal for a quick scamper.

Eating out with your pet in our dog friendly pub

we even have our very own Dog Friendly Pub, The Swan Inn? You and your four-legged friend will always receive a warm welcome in our onsite pub. Whether you want to cosy up inside or bask in the sunlight on the patio, we’ve got some delicious treats for both owner and pooch.

We also stock Doggy Ice Cream – the frozen treat for dogs aged 6 months and upwards. This lip-smackingly tasty treat has no artificial nasties and specially formulated to be gentle on our dog’s digestive system!

Pets aren’t permitted inside our main complex, however, you’re still able to enjoy our mouth-watering meals in an environmentally-friendly, takeaway box to enjoy in your accommodation.

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.

  • 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...

  • 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!
