Reviewer: Sarahkeith 2 reviews from this member

My husband and I have just returned from our first trip to Woodovis Park and we were so impressed with the site that I wanted to take a few minutes to write a review.

We stayed at Woodovis for 3 nights, we had a tent pitch on the Tamar View Field; the pitch was a good size and backed onto a field with some very young cows in it, who were most intrigued at watching us erect our tent!

The Tamar View field is quite a bit further from the shop/reception and toilet/shower facilities than the top field (probably a 3 or 4 minute walk), in fact, it was far enough to mean that some people staying on this field got in their cars to drive to the shop and showers etc! My husband and I used our legs though!

We didn’t use the pool but it looked like a really nice addition to the site and when the weather was a total washout on the Sunday of our stay, it was an indoor facility that people could have used to escape the sound of heavy rain and gusty wind on their caravans and tents! We, somewhat foolishly, drove to Polzeath for a blustery coastal walk with the dog instead!

The staff at Woodovis were all extremely friendly, never ‘in your face’ but always visible on site should you have a query or just to say ‘hello’. Nothing seemed too much trouble for them (I witnessed Chris very discreetly returning a pair of boxer shorts to the chap in the next tent along from us, who had just left them in the shower cubicle a short time before!).

The site is extremely well kept, the ½ mile long driveway to and from the site is beautifully maintained and perfect for a leg stretch with the dog at the start and end of the day!

The toilets and showers were always immaculately clean. They are closed for 90 minutes a day between 11am to 12. 30pm for cleaning but to be honest, they always looked so spotless at whatever time I used them, you’d think someone went in with a mop and cloth every few minutes!

One tiny little downside was that the shower cubicles are quite tight in size (and I’m pretty slim!) so I wouldn’t have thought it was overly spacious for someone of bigger proportions or even a parent with a child.

The water was always hot and the lovely thing was not having to keep pressing a timer switch to activate a few seconds of hot water, like on other sites! The hot and cold water was not centrally controlled so you could adapt the water temperature and flow to suit your own preference, again, a plus compared to other sites where ‘one button does all’!

You have to make sure you cover your belongings over with a towel when in the shower, as there is no shower curtain or screen between the shower itself and the little area for changing but this was a minor thing and as long as you were aware of it, it wasn’t a problem! The showers were never busy, on no occasion did I have to wait for a cubicle.

Woodovis are clearly very forward thinking and proactive in terms of care of the environment and conservation issues. The Dyson super speedy hand-dryers in the washrooms were incredibly efficient!

There are lots of little ‘information points’ around the site, telling you about different birds or plant species you might be able to view from that particular point, including all the way along the driveway.

The thing that really struck me about Woodovis was the discreet and low-key way they maintain their very high standards – in every sense – ethical, environmental, not to mention standards of hygiene and cleanliness! What I mean by this is that there are not signs everywhere saying ‘Do not do this’, ‘Do not do that’! You were not bombarded by ‘caution’ notices or given the feeling that you were being watched and scrutinised at every move!

At Woodovis, the site ran impeccably well but without the need for notices everywhere telling you how to behave! The notices they have up were all useful, to the point and informative, without being too heavy-handed or over the top!

I think because of this, people seemed to totally respect the site and all the facilities all the more, as you didn’t feel it was being rammed down your throat but you were just left to behave like decent grown-ups and treat the site in a respectful way, which everyone seemed to be doing!

The quiet policy on site is for peace and quiet from 10pm onwards and the only place this is mentioned was on the introduction sheet given upon arrival. Eppie pointed this out to my husband when he checked in but she made light of it by saying that the only exception to noise after 10pm was if she got an invite to the party! Of course, this was said totally in jest but because it was made a light-hearted issue, instead of hugely and overly enforced notices everywhere, it was respected 100% and you could hear a pin drop on the site after about 9pm!

This is what I mean about the rules and site etiquette at Woodovis being addressed in a really low key but effective way.

I cannot speak highly enough of Woodovis, it deserves all its accolades and praise! I can’t wait to return later in the year!

Our first visit to Woodovis, but it definitely won't be our last. The site is very well looked after, and takes tents as well as offering mobile home accommodation.

On site is a small shop which offered all the essentials, and a fantastic indoor pool, jacuzzi and sauna. The camping area was right in the centre of the park, and well looked after with good sized pitches.

To be critical these were on a very slight slope but not enough so you spilt your soup!

The toilet block was one of the best we have seen, hot water, lots of cubicles (bearing in mind there were only about 15 pitches for tents) and very clean and modern.

The only downside was that at £40 per night, it isn't cheap, but the facility of the pool and the shop means we will be back for sure. Highly recommended.

We have just got back from a 5 night break at Woodovis and I didn't want to come home.

What a wonderful find - such a peaceful site but also a lovely site for young children, with the play park, swimming pool and games room.

The only thing that would have made it even better would have been a space for ball games and a run around away from the pitches.

The showers were fantastic, particularly as you could adjust temperature and pressure.

The Tamar Donkey park is worth a visit if you have younger children - we had a lovely day and even got to take a very stubborn donkey for a walk!

We are so glad that we found this site and will definitely be returning in the not so distance future!

My wife and I spent a week at Woodovis Park at the end of March. We are not in the habit of leaving reviews but in this instance believe that the standards set by this site are so high that we have to recommend it to others.

The facilities are excellent and kept immaculate. The site is very quiet and pitches spaced so that there is no sense of overcrowding. The showers are super powerful and the temperature is fully adjustable, they even provide shower gel!

The staff are the friendliest and most helpful we have come across and we are looking forward to meeting them again when we return later this year.

The site is an ideal base for touring both Devon and Cornwall but is also a great place to spend a lazy day. A fresh baked croissant or pain au chocolate is a good start to the day and the freshly baked baguettes are delicious.

The pool with a jacuzzi and infared therapy sauna is an unusual and welcome addition to this relatively small site and provided at no extra cost.

Picked Woodovis following the glowing reviews on here and their website statement (quiet, peaceful site) and thought this would be just our cup of tea!

As you can see from all my other site reviews I am not in the habit to leave negative reviews but I feel I have to be honest about Woodovis.

This site was not for us at all, which was surprising as we use the unbiased reviews for guidance, so here goes;

Good points:

Easy to find with good accessibility

Pretty & rural location, no road noise

Lovely long entrance drive

Warm welcome

Freshly made croissants/bread - delicious

Bad points:

Where we were pitched was not quiet. We were in the 'main' area near the toilets and reception next to a car parking area for the statics and any new arrivals. There was a constant stream of traffic in and out, at one point there was a queue right in front of our van. Lots of slamming of car doors and comings and goings - not exactly what we would call 'tranquil'.

Pitches in the main area are small. Tamar field is apparently better but they are a further walk from the toilets. No outlook from our pitch to anything apart from more cramped pitches on what we really think should be left as a 'green area' for children to play on or just to sit on and soak up your surroundings as it really is a pretty park.

The dog walk - small and not long enough, also nowhere to allow dogs to have 'off lead' exercise. The drive makes a lovely walk, but again it is not safe to let dogs off here.

This is the nicest site we have stayed at! Go! Can't recommend it highly enough. Lovely flat pitches, all facilities spotlessly clean and tidy, the staff can't do enough for you and are all happy and clearly enjoy their work, pool lovely, games room perfect for the kids who all got on really well and made lots of new friends (save all your 50p and pound coins for the table football, pool and pinball!)Lovely little playground too.

Very quiet after about 10.30 so ideal for families with younger kids who need to sleep!

If I had to give any constructive criticism (and this is really nit-picking!) all the soap dispensers were high up in the toilets and the kids couldn't reach them. That's the only fault, apart from that this is the perfect site. Can't wait to go back again!
