Remember, your car’s on holiday too. So try a few days without the bother or cost of driving. Here are some great ways to get around and see the sites, without burning petrol…
Don’t forget you can hire E-bikes from us. We set you off with suggested routes to take in beautiful sights, country pubs, cream teas and cool sparkling rivers to paddle in. It’s all you need to make the most of both the Tamar Valley AONB and Dartmoor National Park.
Really discover Dartmoor on a guided walk or try a navigation course. Run by experts who can explain the moorland in as much detail as you want, making it all the more interesting and fun.
The Drake’s Trail has something for all age groups and fitness levels, starting with the new off-road cycling section between Tavistock and Plymouth. You can also download podcasts from the website for a guided audio tour!
See our selection of recommended taxis here. In addition to this we can recommend Tavicab XL on 07525 730003 who have a taxi equipped to take a wheelchair.
This bus runs from Gulworthy Roundabout (1.5miles from Woodovis) to either Tavistock or Gunnislake Railway Station or Callington.
This bus runs from Tavistock to Plymouth.
If you fancy a bit of ‘shopping till dropping‘ Plymouth has all the regular shops in Drake´s Circus the indoor mall.
Devon Cycle Hire will deliver bikes to your pitch at Woodovis Park. They are right next to the lovely Granite Way for the more gentle approach! Quality bikes, traffic free cycling over two viaducts along the Granite Way. Direct trail access, Devon pubs on the route and spectacular views of Dartmoor. Booking advisable.
Steam Locomotives run from Launceston through several miles of countryside to the hamlet of Newmills. At Launceston there is a café, museum, workshop, well stocked shop and bookshop, and adjacent to the railway at Newmills is a popular farm park.
There’s much more to travelling than getting from A to B. Journeys in South West England can be a highlight of your stay, providing unique views, the chance to unwind or to step back in time. Here are just a few of our favourites for you to try.
Since 1987 Aerosaurus have given pleasure to over 60,000 passengers who have experienced the magic of a hot air balloon ride. A balloon flight is unlike other forms of flying; your visibility is through 360 degrees and your flight feels uninhibited.
Inspiration for you to venture out and explore the many attractions on offer for adults, kids and families, away from the games console and the TV, even on a rainy day! GreenDayOut website covers all sorts!
‘Choose Woodovis for our first attempt to holiday with grandchildren without their parents. Stayed in a spotless & comfortable static caravan, for 5 days, that was a new exciting experience for the children, the story teller and circus skills went down well. The pool was a great success it was hard to keep our water babies out. There is a lot to do close by, but the children felt at home so we didn’t go off site very much‘
