We stayed at this site for 18 nights and loved every minute of it.

Whilst the site is large the different sections make it seem smaller. We stayed on the orchard reserved for tents only and found this to be perfect for us with large pitches all around the edge of the field.

We were very lucky to have lovely weather so enjoyed a lot of time in the outdoor pool, although this does get very busy the lifeguards do a great job of keeping everyone under control and there is a lovely family atmosphere.

My children aged 10, 13, & 15 all loved it here, there is a good balance between facilities like amusements and club house and getting back to nature with the fishing lakes and woodland walks. There was something for everyone and if they're all happy I'm happy!

Although very busy in August the camp soon quietens down and night and security patrol to ensure everything is as it should be.

We ate in the on site restaurant and found it to be well cooked good value particularly the carvery. The entertainment was very good although the club house does get very busy sometimes making it hard to get a seat.

We took part in the visiting outdoor pursuits activities and had a go at archery and shooting which was great fun! This site really did help us enjoy precious family time together

We're booked to go again this August and can't wait!

This was the second time if have been here. We were welcomed with a friendly hello from the staff and were shown into the office which was a delightful experience.

After we paid for the camp we were allocated to a pitch of our own choice, however hook ups were more expensive than non. He campsite is very clean and the toiletries were very clean. There are lots of toilets and showers easy to get around in.

There are a few play areas and a football net including basketball nets, also the pools are very clean and are heated. The pub was nice and modern with different activities throughout the days for adults and children. The shop is very nice including all the correct items for camping but some things can be a bit expensive.

There are many things to do around. In Dawlish a few minutes away there is the beach and an outdoor go cart track which was very fun. There is a near by sainsburys which was helpful for everyday food.

It is very busy in the summer and you may want to book it first.

I would definitely recommend

Just returned from a week stay with my wife and two daughter's aged 12&10, overall. Fantastic site. Just about all you need in one place. Indoor pool, good size and girls loved it, again outdoor pool excellent( weather permitting which luckily it was) clubhouse beer was good and reasonable price, I didn't try the clubhouse food but the on site chippy was good again ok priced. Staff friendly and toilets and shower excellent and always clean. Nice woodland walks also recommend or carry on into Dawlish approx a mile. Would we go again. Already in process off booking.

We have just come back from a lovely week away at Cofton and will be going back.

The facilities were great, shop was very well stocked and not too expensive, the staff in reception were brilliant, even when my car got stuck on the low wall opposite reception (my otherhalf was trying to do an impression of the Italian Job!).

We were shown to our pitch on the 12 acre field (basic camping, no electric), which was perfect and the view from the tent was lovely, surrounded by countryside. What more could you ask for when listening to the whistle of the kettle boiling and the smell of bacon cooking?

However, on a slightly negative side, the portacabin shower block could have been cleaner, the sinks and toilets were fine, but the shower cubicles were a little dirty, so we decided to use the 'posh' ones a bit further away. But hey, exercise is good for you!

We only used the café once and we thought the food was a tad on the expensive side for a holiday park. But there is a big Sainsburys just around the corner.

But the site on the whole was very clean and tidy.

The out door pool was great fun, we didn't need to venture into the indoor pool and who goes to the gym when they're on holiday :)

There was security patrol at night time. , which was nice to see.

So all in all a fab time was had.

Not a complaint but, shall we say 'Constructive Criticism?'

Stopped at this beautiful campsite this August and was reasonably happy with our pitch at first. The surrounding area was nice, the facilities were excellent and the toilets were generally superb. It was the height of the season so I expected to queue for the showers but in ten days it happened only the once from memory.

I have waited this long to comment for a number of reasons. One, we had a family bereavement and two; I needed to calm down and think carefully how I would write this!


Tents vs. Caravans.

In over forty years of camping in all manner of things from tents to trailer tents, a bivouac and caravan’s I have never, ever, camped anywhere where a tent is beside a caravan. A Trailer or camper yes, but Tents are generally separated. Strange, but I think I am correct! Tents and caravans do not mix, this was evident over this holiday.

Camp fires.

As much as I like a BBQ, campfires on a camp site each in close proximity, are absolutely wrong. Having someone’s smoky fire billowing wood smoke through your caravan windows is definitely off putting!

Ball games, or similar.

In a properly specified area is acceptable. But, teenagers throwing balls, foam whistling bombs, playing football is just not acceptable. A whistling foam bomb dents a caravan and so does a ball. The argument for a repair bill would be horrendous! Yes, we suffered most of the above…!

Camp safety. ,

Staff whizzing around on buggies at quite excessive speed is not good. Young children and adults or, the aged and infirm, will eventually get hurt. If no one has to date, then its getting close to the time someone will.


That narrow lane just passed the swimming pool on the way up to Barnfield, where we stayed, is just not acceptable. I knew all week, that when I left, I would meet a caravan coming the other way. I did! Rip out the central reservation and make it easy access!

What really is funny in my mind, apart from the above, is that the site was superb! I only have one real gripe, barely worth mentioning and would cost little to correct.

In the shower cubicles there was a distinct lack of hat and coat pegs!

Getting really picky…

•an adult swim session at the end of the day would be good

•extra hand dryer in the toilet would be useful

•overflow pipes in sinks were dirty/close to blocked

•Barnfield could do with a better water facility as dragging an Aqua roll up that hill at my age (57 ¾) in the wet was bordering on dangerous!

Would I come back?

For the facilities and the location… definitely! But, not until I was assured all the main points were covered in someway!

Don't get me wrong it is an excellent site but somehow I feel the management is lacking in some way!

We have stayed at Cofton on numerous occasions. It is the best site we have ever visited, and we will continue to stay there when we can.

The reception is friendly, efficient and very helpful.

The shop is large and very well stocked.

The outdoor pool is great and lifeguard in attendance. The indoor pool and fitness suite are a massive hit with our teenagers and grandchildren too.

The pitches are well serviced, level and have electric hook up and water.

The shower and toilet blocks are scrupulously clean and well thought out. There is a shelf area above the toilet so you can put your towels and clothing there rather than on the floor.

They pipe music into the block which is a lovely touch.

The showers have plenty of room, are thermostatically controlled and do not keep turning off during showering. There is a dressing area as part of your cubicle and your clothes are protected from getting wet.

There is a lovely play oark for the little ones, and donkeys in the top of the field.

There are lovely fishing lakes to walk around on site and ducks love to be fed.

The laundry and the Games room are excellent too.

We love to walk through the woods from the site to Dawlish Warren and around the area.

There is a very large Sainsbury's nearby including fuel station and carwash.

I rate this site as a 5 star. It is our number 1 site so far.

Stayed here for a full week. It was absolutely lovely the best site we have ever been too. The campsite is very well kept no matter where you pitch your tent. We arrived and was offered a number of areas to choose from just pick where you want. Ideal no pressure we walked around and found the perfect pitch not far from the fishing lakes. It was lovely sun all day.

We tried the restaurant twice very nice no complaints for dinner and for breakfast on the morning we left. Used the outdoor pool to cool down in the amazingly hot temperatures it was great it looked really busy but once in there was plenty of room to cool down.

The on site shop hires you out cool cubes for your cool box which we really needed. The shop was reasonably priced and well stocked. We also found that there was a Sainsbury's just down the road.

The toilets and showers were always clean I even met the very quite cleaners at 5. 04am who whispered good morning! There were a number of workers on the site all very friendly and well turned out. My only gripe and I am being petty is on one of the evenings in the restaurant two of the female staff were not as friendly as their fellow staff which left me feeling I bit uncomfortable about going back. So used a different restaurant the next night.

I have said it already but this really is the best site we have ever been to.

Just come back from 10 days stay at this site with group of friends four caravans in total. This is a large site I was shown to pitch by staff but friends on pitch next to me were not and had to find own pitch. The pitch was large and flat but very hard to hammer pegs in for awning gravel with concrete underneath. Other two vans were at the other end of park even though we booked in January and requested to be close if possible couldn't be further away if they tried. This site has very good facilities and all looked very new pub/club restaurant/ kids play area excellent only gripe outdoor pool freezing I would not go in and you have to pay to use indoor pool. We all had meals in restaurant and food good service quick. The toilets shower facilities were very clean and there were lots of them could do with few more water points about the site. Overall this is nice clean large site with friendly staff.

Just spent the half term holiday here with the wife and two teenage kids. This site has a lot going for it - the tent pitches are fairly flat and quite large, although we did notice that the modern tent is getting quite big nowadays, and we did have one night when we got back to the tent to find that a new neighbour had parked their car in our pitch area and we had to park elsewhere. But they were only there for a couple of nights and subsequently parked in the vacant pitch on their other side.

The toilet and shower blocks were clean and tidy and were kept in good order, with soap dispensers at the wash hand basins.

The showers were excellent with lashings of lovely hot water.

The entertainment facilities were just about the best I have come across in the UK, with something for the kids during the day and something for us big kids in the evening.

The outside pool looks very continental, but our teenage crash test dummies said that it wasn't heated - maybe not to their standards, but they chose to pay £1. 95 per day to splash about in the indoor pool. We didn't begrudge paying that amount - we were glad to be rid of them for a couple of hours whilst we relaxed in the comfortable lounge, sipping our latte and digging into a slice of cake.

If I had to make a criticism, it is that the site has virtually no TV coverage, which is not the fault of the site, but we also found that we couldn't pick up the site's Wi-Fi, which had my teenage son almost at the point of tears.

Would we go back to Cofton? You bet we will!

Second time here on a 5 day discounted break-just over £73- which included ehu on a hardstanding pitch by the lake and TV point. As other comments a nice site, good toilets, free powerful showers, friendly staff. Two GBG listed pubs are within 10min walking distance, cycle path also nearby which can take you to Exeter or the other way to Dawlish. Bus stop not far from reception that also goes to Exeter or Newton Abbot, runs every 20mins until quite late. Didn't use the on-site facilities but looks good for familys though not many familys here during our stay as was out of season and very quiet.
