Fabulous CL

Woodlands Caravan Park
The site is very easy to find and only just off the main roads so no tiny lanes to negotiate and despite the approach being on a slope, our pitch was certainly flat and level, as the others appeared to be. Each pitch has its own water point, this saves a lot of work if you take a hose pipe. The separate wooden cabin with shower, toilet, sink, info, book pile etc was lovely although we used our own facilities. It is a very rural setting with good views but still well placed to visit all the nearby popular destinations. It is a 10 minute walk to the bus stop which is roughly every half hour. We used the train station in Newton Abbot nearly every day to visit all the wonderful places on the Riviera line, however after the first day of using the bus to get there we took the car. It's just under 3 miles to the train station, but over 25 minutes on the bus which serves all the housing estate and goes to the opposite end of Newton Abbot so nearly a mile walk back to the train station. Also for 2 adult returns the bus is dearer than train station parking so yet again private vehicles trump public transport in terms of time, ease and cost. The trains are approximately 3 an hour in both directions and so cheap after 9.30am that exploring the area is magic. When we did use the car we found car parks generally want payment via app, sometimes cheaper that way too such as at the station, often accept contactless and occasionally have no cash method of payment. Teignmouth, Dawlish, Paignton, Plymouth, Exmouth all make for great days out, our only disappointment was Torquay which we found disjointed, without focus and tatty. The area is very well served for supermarkets and shops in Newton Abbot and most of the other nearby places. The CL is super clean, tidy and hassle free. Heather the owner pops around every few days (maybe more as we were out a lot) and couldn't be more friendly and welcoming. It was Mediterranean hot whilst we were there so when we were in, and at night, we had the windows and door open: no issue with road noise during our 2 weeks and we are from a very quiet rural area however obviously people have their own opinions. We loved the area, loved the site and after 15 days of doing stuff, there is still plenty left for us to visit another time.

Well maintained site and easy to access

Woodlands Caravan Park
Great views from the site. A choice of 5 hardstandings, these are a little narrow especially if you are expecting to put an awning up as well as park your car. A shed contains a toilet and a shower and an information place. Recycling facilities are available and also a chemical disposal point. Very level pitches, well maintained site, which each hardstanding having its own water point and EHU. Quiet surroundings, you can hear the road, but only if you want to listen for it!

Super little site

Woodlands Caravan Park
We just arrived home after staying on this super little site. Don’t be put off by reviews that report road noise it really isn’t a problem. There is a by pass nearby but the noise is minimal. The site is immaculate, the loo is clean as is the shower. Access is very easy and the views from the van was lovely. Nearby Sainsbury’s is great for picking up goodies, and fuel too. Nearby Paignton and Torquay are easily reached too. Thank you Heather we had a great few days .
