“Super pod super stay”
Reviewed 3 August 2014

Just returned back from a two night stay in one of the super pods. Couldn't have been more impressed with the pod, everything you could want two fold up camp beds included and the table and seating area folding down into a snug double bed. There was plenty of room for the three of us all snug watching TV on a night whilst surfing the internet a luxury we was more than happy to pay for , bargain price of £12 for our stay for all three devices. Made up. The camp was lovely and clean and had a friendly family feel to it. Throughout our stay the staff were warm and accommodating offering nuggets of advice on what to do and where to eat. We ate at the copper penny on both nights on recommendation from andy and his review couldn't have been more spot on! All in all would recommend and stay again if we were to head that way again. Surroundings, facilities and staff were all top notch. I'd say you need a car and be prepared to travel out for things to do such as beaches and towns etc but don't be deterred due to this as after all you have lovely surroundings and a comfy bed waiting for you back at site :-) ten out of ten.

Room Tip: Worth paying bit more for super pod with TV and room for two camp beds.

Stayed 2 nights in our motorhome. This is a charming and excellent park set a long way off of the road so very quiet and relaxing. It is maintained to the highest standard and the facilities are excellent. The staff were all very friendly. It has a swimming pool and they have various things on each evening of the week. On our first night there was a story teller, yes a story teller and he was fantastic for both kid and adults! They also had a local farm visit with some small animals. Tavistock is a lovely little town with a Morrison and a Lidl and the park is centrally located with many attractions and beaches with easy driving distance. I would highly recommend for a stopover or a longer stay.

How lovely to hear your review, and to see how you enjoyed the story-teller and farm too! It's not just the children that can get kicks out of these things! Thank you so much for posting your review and we hope to see you back when you're next touring around our part of the world! ;O)

From the friendly welcome by staff that couldn`t do enough to help you...to the excellent facilities..this is the best site we`ve camped on. Its clear that a great deal of thought..down to the smallest detail has been used by the owners. From the flowers placed in the immaculate toilet/shower block ...to the free doggie poo bags on the doggie walk. The washing machines even have wash liquid/conditioner included in the cost of them.....so no need to buy them. We`ll be back asap..need i say more?

Excellent park. Quiet and relaxing within easy reach of lots of beaches and other attractions (Cornwall just a few miles away). Just along the road from Tavistock (Morrison's and Lidl's here). Very friendly staff and other holiday makers. Wish we could have stayed longer. Missing it already. Kids loved it.

So our kids gave me a gift of a one night stay at a Superpod at Woodovis Park near Tavistock and it was delightful ! It was snug for the 2 of us but it does sleep 4 persons provided you like being cosy ! The setting ,location and facilities here are brilliant. We had not " roughed it " for many years but this was very comfortable and just good fun. Lots of families around too but everybody getting on with each other and many nationalities too. Great toilets, showers and swimming pool and a very nice foody pub nearby run by Peter and Marion.....The Copper Penny. Back at Woodovis, I bought some croissants and the lady on reception made me 2 cups of tea too as we had none ! Fantastic staff, surroundings and views !

Room Tip: Its a camp site with tents, pods or mobile homes

We booked our 5 night stay reasonably late, about 4 weeks before our arrival date. After staying there I couldn't believe we actually got a pitch for our tent so late. I would probably rate this campsite as the cleanest, most welcoming, well kept site in such a great location.

Having a stressful job and needing some quality time we found Woodovis park online. Absolutely beautiful setting with friendly staff and an amazing modern park. Modern and very clean toilet blocks and well kept swimming with fresh bread and pastries baked to order every morning - bliss!! Could not recommend this place enough, we stayed in the glamping camping pod and it was a wonderful experience. If you are looking for a weekend away without the faff of a tent then definitely try the glamping pods. Lots to do for both adults and kids!
