Alan Rogers Review

A popular and efficient, family run park, Cofton is 1.5 miles from a sandy beach at Dawlish Warren. It has space for 450 touring units, including large motorcaravans, on a variety of fields and meadows with beautiful country views. Although not individually marked, there is never a feeling of overcrowding and there are some pre-bookable, accessible pitches. The smaller, more mature fields, including a pleasant old orchard for tents only, are well terraced. While there are terraces on most of the slopes of the larger, more open fields, there are still some quite steep gradients to climb, rewarded by the views. There are some 450 electrical connections (10A), 63 hardstandings and 20 ‘super’ pitches. Self-catering accommodation on site includes holiday homes, cottages and apartments.

A well designed, central complex overlooking the pool and decorated with flowers and hanging baskets houses reception, a shop and off-licence and a traditional bar, the Cofton Swan. An extension to this complex provides another two bar areas suitable for daytime dining and evening entertainment, plus an indoor pool, sauna, steam room and gym, as well as a soft play area for children and a centrally located arcade. The extension is open all year round except for Christmas and Boxing Day. The outdoor pool with a paddling pool has lots of grassy space for sunbathing. Coarse fishing is available in five lakes on the park. The adjoining unspoilt woodland of 50 acres provides wonderful views across the Exe Estuary and a woodland trail of two miles to Dawlish Warren.
