You’ll want to Camp-elot!

17th April 2012 Print

Book a unique break in a tent that captures the spirit of a Medieval crusade....whilst offering more home comforts than you could possibly expect from a camping experience!

Crealy Meadows’ brand new and exclusive Medieval Pavilions come in bright red and blue stripes with jaunty pennants flying from the top – capturing the essence of King Arthur and the Knights of the Round Table right in the heart of the Devonshire countryside.

Inside it’s more ‘glamping’ than ‘camping’, with accommodation for six in bedrooms furnished with proper beds, a full-size wood burning range-style cooker and a kitchen area that even includes a full Belfast sink! Unfold the sofa bed and there’s room for two more people. Roll up the door hangings and there’s an outside decking area with table and chairs.

And if you feel that every worthy Knight deserves a trusty steed, Crealy will let you ‘Own a Pony’ for the duration of your stay, with pint-sized ponies for mini-Knights to get up close and hands on with a miniature Shetland or Dartmoor pony.

The brand new camping experience opens in May and also offers stylish Safari Tents appointed to the same luxurious standards as well as pitches for your own caravan, motorhome or tent. First class facilities include modern showers and washrooms, family bathrooms, laundrette and dishwashing facilities ....and if you really can’t live without it there’s even free WiFi.

But what makes this even more than just a great way to enjoy camping and the great outdoors is the immediate access to Devon’s Crealy Great Adventure Park. Book a break outside of school holidays and enjoy free access to Devon’s most popular fun park every single day – and during school holidays you’ll pay just once for unlimited access.

The park has loads to keep families happy with thrilling rides and attractions, indoor and outdoor experiences, places to explore and play, animals to pet and a choice of venues to eat and drink.

And if you can drag the kids away from the theme park, Crealy Meadows is perfectly located for exploring the rest of Devon - with the Jurassic Coast, a choice of beautiful beaches, Exeter and Dartmoor all within easy reach.

Prices for a Medieval Pavilion or Safari Tent start at just £200 for a three night weekend break for up to eight people – including free access to the Adventure Park and the ‘Own a Pony’ experience (price based on weekends in May). Discounts are available for Crealy Members. For more information, visit
