What our customers say:

5 of 5 starsPicked Woodovis on the back of other reviews and not disappointed!  Beautifully kept site, great facilities and fantastic staff.  Try the spa sauna, it does wonders for your back.  Our four legged companions loved the dog walk and field where they ran free. Loved hearing the birds especially the Owls at night.  Looking forward to returning soon!’

~ Tripadvisor.co.uk May 2015

‘Impeccable caravan, better than any cottage I have recently rented.  Full heating and kitchen and felt brand new.  We had such a lovely holiday here.  Great indoor pool, such a bonus on wet days.  Really lovely children’s playground.  Great little shop and real treat having fish and chip van to visit.  By far the best campsite I have ever stayed at….’
