Driftwood is a cosy, coastal chalet, with a bright, modern, beach themed decor with driftwood wall art, adding to the 'seaside holiday' atmosphere. Both the lounge and double bedroom boast stunning sea views.

We were fortunate enough to book this lovely chalet on the site which in itself is very well kept . The chalet itself as soon as you walk in was beautiful, tastefully decorated and as previous reviews have mentioned very well kitted out from hair dryer to binoculars. It was also a lovely surprise when you open to fridge to...

We stayed here with our 2 year old daughter and had a brilliant week. The accommodation has everything you could need and is in a brilliant location for local attractions, particularly for young kids. The pool and park are very close by and were also excellent. The only potential downside was no wifi in the house itself, although you can...

About the neighbourhood
Bideford Bay Holiday Park is set on an attractive wooded hillside with magnificent coastal views and the nearest beach of Bucks Mills can be reached by either taking a short (steep), but interesting walk through the beautiful woods on the edge of the park, (about 3/4km approx), or can be approached by car. It is a rocky beach with rock pools but with expanses of sand at low tide.<BR><BR>The Eden Project in Cornwall, about 1 1/2 hours away is a great day out and Lundy Island just off the coast, is well worth the boat trip from Bideford Quay, to experience the peace and tranquility there.<BR><BR>Bideford is a busy port/market town with an attractive quayside and some interesting shops, several bars and restaurants.
