We invited some friends and family to join us and had a great time. The inside pool was great and despite the odd down pour we all got to enjoy the facilities.

Well laid out for big and small campers friendly staff and a very handy fish n chip shop on site

Stayed: May 2014

We have just returned today having spent a week at Cofton, in Mobile home 60. I love the place, the peace and quiet, the nice views but mostly the fishing. I managed 24 carp out this and some nice bream. I heard the usual grumbles about the fish being hard to catch!, are they? or is it people are just not trying hard enough? The last two times I have caught on Chick peas this time it was bread or prawns and mussels. The fish are there, you have to work for them, thats why they call it angling not catching! We have booked again for 2015, its a great holiday venue, the park is set out nicely for families and of course caters well for the angler. Thanks again to all at Cofton.

We stayed a couple of nights at Cofton when the weather forecast suggested access to some indoor facilities would be a good idea. The new indoor pool complex is fantastic: very safe and lots to occupy children.
The food in the cafe area was surprisingly good with some very interesting things on the specials board. My daughter enjoyed the soft play area too.
The RADAR key to get in to the family bathrooms is a great idea and the facilities are warm and very clean.
We like a bit of privacy so ended up camping at the far end of the site, which was very quiet but there is lots of opportunity to stay closer to the facilities if you want.

We stayed here for 5 nights in a touring caravan from 17th-22nd May 2014. The park is beautifully laid out & the grass pitches are huge. Shower (free) & toilet facilities are spotlessly clean and there is plenty of hot water.We only went for a drink in the bar on one evening, prices a bit high but thats not unusual. The indoor & outdoor pools are lovely, well appointed and looked immaculate. All the staff were extremely friendly & helpful. The only downside for us was that reception on Vodafone was iffy to say the least but that is not the fault of the park & tv reception not brilliant but adequate. We would definitely use this site again when we next go to Devon.

Room Tip: We were on a grass pitch at the far end of the site, lovely & quiet with nice views. If you wan...

Arrived home last Saturday from our first visit to Cofton for this year. As usual we were warmly welcomed by all in reception and our' off the main site' cottage was beautifully clean and inviting. Everything we needed was there and the beds are really comfy. Due to having an injury to my foot we were unable to attend any of the Country and Western events that took place during the evenings and some afternoons which we could have attended for free. I made use of the indoor Ashburn Springs pool which is fantastic and has cushioned flooring in the pool which was just right for my tender feet and the changing rooms are of various sizes to accommodate more than one family member with ease as required. In all we had a wonderful relaxing time and looking forward to our next holiday there in a few weeks time.

Had a super pitch with all facilities which were very good. Problem we had was a large group of people the other side of the hedge behind the caravan. Every night we had loud music which we could hear with all windows and doors shut. I don't mind people having a great time but sound travels especially if you are in a tent.I now know all the words to the music from Bronsky Beat and Tom Jones.It's a great site but I would not pay the extortionate prices they charge for pitches at peak season.It's such a shame that these prices reflect when kids are off school.Our kids are grown up but I feel sorry for the families having to pay so much.Also for the prices charged I think the electric hookup should be 16 amps not 10.Modern Caravans use a lot more electric and its a pain turning this off so that can be turned on.Staff in reception were lovely and helpful. We will come back but only off peak times when it is a lot quieter.
