Excellent the only fault I can pick is the lager in the clubhouse and upstairs bar was foul I tried the two most popular brands and they were both bad

Fantastic holiday site. So much to do for the kids. After being to Haven sites and thinking these were great, we think cofton holidays have excelled over Haven. Very clean, friendly staff. Food great quality in restaurants and reasonably priced. Kids entertainment a big hit with my 5 year old. Can’t wait to return in the future!

Visited 19th July for 7 nights. We had a great time at Cofton and would definitely recommend it! It was our first caravan holiday as a family and we loved every minute! We stayed in the Fernworthy which was lovely - Cofton went above and beyond to provide everything we needed even down to fresh milk in the fridge! As a new ‘caravaner’ it would of been handy to have a short inventory just listing out a few items as we duplicated quite a lot (this might just be down to our inexperience). The caravan was spotlessly clean, in a lovely private spot of the park with a lovely, clean and well maintained hot tub. The welcome hamper was a thoughtful touch too. Couldn’t fault the staff, all extremely helpful. Nothing too much trouble. The receptionists and shop assistants were especially nice and helpful. The facilities were well kept and very clean - the indoor pool is amazing! The outdoor heated pools were great too although they do get very busy. The smaller ‘toddler pool’ in particular got really busy, too busy for my liking with a lot of the bigger kids (sometimes teenagers) going in. Although the lifeguards at times tried to manage this I found it to be quite dangerous. My 3 year old got thrown about a bit. Maybe an age restriction would help? The park isn’t exclusive to guests, it does allow day guests too. At peak times this makes the park really busy! One of the days at the pool was so busy we called it a day and went to the beach. We paid almost £1400 for the holiday, I do understand that this is also a business and a seasonal one at that but to have to change our plans to allow for the ‘day guests’ was frustrating. I think the paying holidaymaker should be more of a priority. As we drove back in from our afternoon at the beach we did notice a sign saying ‘no day guests’ but at this point the damage was done. Sunday Carvery, definitely worth a visit. I love a Sunday Lunch and this was one of the best carverys I’ve had! All home cooked and reasonably priced. We also tried breakfast at Amelias pantry and the chip shop, both very nice although the chip shop was quite expensive for what it is. We had a lovely meal at a near by pub called ‘Snugglers Inn’ which is worth a visit! Overall our holiday was a very good one. Although there is one of two negatives the positives I feel so make up for this. We wanted to be honest with our feedback as we feel this will only help the park. Well done Cofton, you’re a great park with great staff who obviously work very hard. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend you. We hope to see you again soon!

We loved every bit of this holiday, and really can't fault any aspect of it. Friendly and efficient check-in process at reception, we were allowed into our holiday home around 30 minutes before official check in time. The holiday home itself was clean and spacious, the provision of towels was an unexpected bonus. Good supply of hot water in kitchen and bathroom. The site had great facilities. Our 7 year old son loved the outdoor heated pool. We are in the Warren's Retreat and Amelia's Pantry, both provided good service and lovely food. The free Kids Club activities were great, especially the nature walk with Jay and Craig. Great to see a site being so eco-friendly in terms of recycling and energy efficiency. Evening entertainment was also very good, for kids and adults. The onsite shop was great for essentials, and the general location perfect for getting to nearby larger shops, beaches and enjoying a couple of runs out in the surrounding countryside Nothing to complain about, and will certainly be looking to re-book for next year

Had a 4 night break just to get away and what a fantastic place to stay! Immaculately clean both in caravan and the site in general. Lovely countryside views. Staff were helpful and friendly and the evening entertainment staff always came over for a chat. Loads to do to keep kids entertained on site, such as small soft play, indoor and outdoor pools, arcade, outside play area and evening entertainment, my 5 year old loved it! Got chatting to a couple who have been visiting this site for 25 years so that must be a recommendation in itself. The only thing that I would have liked would for it to have been closer to Dawlish Warren beach as would have been a 30 minute walk we were advised so didn't bother with 2 young children. Was only a short drive and plenty of parking at a reasonable price so not a problem really. Loads to do at Dawlish Warren beach, arcades, go karts, small funfair-these do get pricey after a while which is to be expected as weather was only good enough to get on the beach on 2 of the 4 days. Overall I would highly recommend this place and wouldn't hesitate to go back again! Well done!

Fantastic week from 29th June. Two adultsand two children staying in Burgundy caravan..spotlessly clean and perfect for a weeks holiday. Facilities at site are really good and everything is clean and looked after. We loved the mini pony and donkey on site. Staff are really friendly and helpful too. The site is the right size, not too big but not too small either. Lots to do in the area. We will return, this was a super find for us.
