Perfect location, great staff

My family and I visited Woodovis for a break and what a lovely location and park this is the staff couldn’t do enough for us and the facilities was amazing (pool & hot tub) with COVID measures in place. That also bake fresh bread and croissants that the kids loved for breakfast. We will be back for another holiday here.

Fantastic

Just had a fantastic 10 night stay at Woodovis, lovely welcome from all the staff. The site is very clean and well run, quiet location, plenty of space. In our view this site easily beats competitors including the biggest organizations in Britain, they could learn from Woodovis.

Tripadvisor.co.uk 2020

Five star park. We stayed here in our caravan and were more than impressed with this site and the friendly helpful staff. The site is well situated and spotlessly clean and well kept. Ample facilities including heated indoor pool and hot tub, plenty of hot showers and washing up facilities. The park is visited by Poppins mobile bar, the hog roast & pizza van several times a week. Fresh bread is available to order in the shop which has a good selection of all essential supplies. I will definitely be back. Tripadvisor.co.uk 2020
