The West Country

For the very best of the West Country head to award-winning Woodovis Park in Devon, which re-opens for the season at the end of March.

The independently run holiday park has recently swept the board with a string of awards, including beating off competition from 2,000 parks across 13 countries to be one of only two UK winners in the Alan Rogers 2009 Campsite Awards.

• Highly Commended winners in The Alan Rogers 2009 Campsite Awards
• Hoseasons Diamond Award
• Silver in the South West Tourism for Excellence Awards 2009/10 'Holiday Park of the Year'
• Ranked in the top 20 in the Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks 2010
• Dartmoor First Award for sustainable practice

Situated on the edge of Dartmoor in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and a designated World Heritage Site, five-star Woodovis Park also took Silver in the South West Tourism for Excellence Awards 2009/10 'Holiday Park of the Year' category. Other recent achievements include the Hoseasons Diamond Award for exceptional quality and outstanding customer service as well as ranking in the top 20 in the Practical Caravan Top 100 Parks 2010. Woodovis Park has been recognised with a Dartmoor First Award for its commitment to sustainable business on Dartmoor.

Owners John and Dorothy Lewis are delighted with the recognition. “This run of awards is incredibly gratifying,” comments John. “We work very hard to ensure Woodovis Park is a friendly, safe and welcoming site, combining the best standards of sustainable camping with a few creature comforts. We’re not one of the biggest sites but it’s nice to know we’re one of the best,” he adds.

Woodovis Park sits in 14 acres in the tranquil surrounds of the Tamar Valley on the Devon-Cornwall border, an ideal base for exploring attractions from Dartmoor to the Eden Project along with the West Country’s beautiful beaches. With a range of luxury holiday homes, holiday cottage, 50 spacious pitches (including all weather pitches) and the addition of a new camping ‘pod’, Woodovis Park is perfect for enjoying the great outdoors, whatever the weather has in store. And with on-site facilities including a heated swimming pool, spa pool, sauna and shop offering fresh daily baked bread, croissants and pain au chocolat, a great value holiday needn’t mean going without.

Visit before the end of May and enjoy some of the best weather, fewer people and excellent rates. Pitch fees cost from as little as £5 from 27 March to 27 May (excluding Easter and Bank Holidays) plus £7 per person. Children under five camp for free. The new fully-insulated camping pod costs from £40 per night and sleeps up to four people. A fully-equipped two bedroom luxury holiday home, sleeping up to six people, costs from £157 per week. Woodovis Cottage sleeps up to three people and costs from £233 per week.
