The coastal location also makes a good base for exploring the surrounding area – with superb attractions, acres of rolling Devon countryside from moor to sea and idyllic towns you will be spoilt for choice.

Self Catering Holiday Cottages and Apartments

 Within the eighty acre site there are twelve cottages, located in three different positions. The cottages are all sympathetic and modern refurbishments of dwellings and barns that are over one hundred years old. The cottages are a real home from home with comfy sofas, fully-equipped kitchens and outside space. Cofton Cottages are located on the main holiday park and are overlooked by ancient Cofton Church and private woods. Eastdon Stable Cottages and Woodside Cottages are located on the Eastdon Estate, just a short drive from the main holiday park.

The five Cofton Cottages neighbour the ancient Cofton Church and private woods, and being within the heart of the main park are close to all the leisure facilities and entertainment.

The Eastdon Estate is a short drive or a woodland walk away from the main park and boasts 50acres of landscaped gardens and mature woodland as well as stunning views of the Exe Estuary and Dawlish Warren beyond. Here the four Eastdon Stable Cottages back onto Eastdon House and have been sympathetically restored into two and three bedroom cottages with all the home comforts.

The Woodside Cottages, also on the Eastdon Estate, is a small cluster of three cottages providing an exclusive feel and with beautiful views of surrounding countryside

Eastdon House is a late eighteenth century Georgian house standing on one of the most impressive positions on the Exe Estuary. It has been converted into five individual apartments of a very high standard. From the striking house, tidy lawns slope down to open parkland with magnificent views across the estuary. Eastdon Estate is set away from the main park yet close enough to still enjoy its facilities and entertainment – the woodland walk to the main park is ideal for fine days, or hop in the car to arrive within a few minutes. The estate is a peaceful and beautiful place to enjoy with friends and family. Having just five apartments and private parking, the house also has an exclusive feel. The accommodation is either two or three bedrooms and they are fully furnished and equipped with tv, cooker, fridge, microwave, crockery, cutlery and utensils. Short breaks are available early and late season.

Holiday Homes - Static Caravans

With a great choice of one, two and three bedroom holiday homes you should have no problem finding a holiday home to suit your family and budget. The caravans are all comfortably furnished and have fully-equipped kitchens, and some include master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms. There are also holiday homes that are wheelchair accessible and some that accept a dog. The holiday home terraces are designed around existing trees and landscaping, allowing a naturally spacious layout. Also handy for the park’s main facilities including the indoor and outdoor pools, most holiday homes have attractive views and all are maintained to a high standard.

Child Friendly Facilities

Opened in 2013, the new indoor leisure complex offers something for everyone along with the rest of the facilities.The indoor pool (which charges a small fee per person) has massage jets, hydrotherapy bubble loungers and a
splash pad play area for 'little ones' plus a sauna and steam room for the adults. There is also a well equipped gym. The free outdoor heated swimming pool, provides hours of fun in the sunshine but can get very busy in the summer months.
Children’s facilities are extensive and include play areas at opposite ends of the campsite, as well as a woodland adventure play area and nature trail.  Sandwiched between the woodland area and the swimming pool complex is a sloping meadow with a couple of donkeys and a pony for children to pet.

On-site restaurant

Self catering maybe the less stressful option for families but sometimes the chef needs a break on holiday and with Amelia's on-site it's handy to be able to grab a bite to eat. For breakfast, lunch and dinner, Amelia's is adjacent to the indoor pool and also has great views of the outdoor pool and the park. Whether a coffee and cake after a swim or stopping for lunch, you'll find a friendly and casual atmosphere and delicious food. Within Amelia's Pantry there is a small children's soft play area suitable for children up to age 8.

Location and things to do in Devon

Cofton Country park is a handy distance from J30 of the M5. From Cofton you can take a leisurely walk through Eastdon Woods and down to Dawlish Warren Beach which offers panoramic views across the Exe Estuary. If you are feeling really adventurous you can walk on further to Dawlish via the Coastal Path, the National Cycle Route is nearby and can be joined at Cockwood and you can now cycle seamlessly with the new bridge at Powderham onto Exeter or Exmouth and beyond.  It's really handy to go a couple of miles up the road and park at Starcross station and get the train along the coast past Dawlish and onto Torquay, or get the passenger ferry over to Exmouth.
