The multi-award-winning Oakdown Touring Park near Sidmouth is officially one of the best campsites in Devon!
Welcoming tents, tourers, camper vans and motorhomes. For glamping holidays, there are camping pods and shepherd's huts or for more luxury, the park also features luxury leisure lodges, some of which are dog-friendly, and there are holiday homes for sale. Oakdown also offers seasonal pitches for those who want to leave their caravans all year round.
The Leisure Lodges are home from home. Each one is centrally-heated, double glazed and fully fitted with everything you need including co-ordinating bed linen and duvets. Each lodge has a spacious kitchen with a microwave oven, fridge and freezer, full electric cooker and heated shower rooms. The lodges are suitable for up to six people with two bedrooms, one with a double bed and Flat Screen TV, while the other have twin beds. The beautiful lounge has sprung seating, remote-controlled flat-screen TV, DVD player and an electric fire.
This is a delightfully landscaped park filled with trees, hedges and flower beds. There's a choice of level, non-serviced (no hook-up), serviced (hook-up) or super-serviced (hook-up, water and drainage) pitches.
Children will love the adventure playground with its web-like climbing frame, bouncy ride-on toy, swing and mini climbing wall. And everyone will love the Oak Lodge Cafe where you can go to enjoy a range of coffees, teas and cold drinks, and give in to the temptations of hot foods, cakes and sandwiches, and in summer the ultimate Devon holiday treat – Devonshire cream teas. The Oak Lodge is open 8am - 8pm all season and it's a pet-free and smoke-free part of the holiday park.
Situated on the World Heritage Site Jurassic Coast near Sidmouth, Oakdown has a nine-hole, par 3 golf course opposite and a walking trail that leads directly to Devon's famous Donkey Sanctuary. You could also take in a stretch of the South-West Coast Path from here.
When readers of Practical Caravan and Practical Motorhome filled in their voting slips in great numbers, propelling Oakdown Touring Park into the Top 100 Sites Awards again, they made some lovely comments. Here is a selection:
"On arrival, we found the staff very friendly. They took us personally to our pitch. The site was well-laid-out – very clean and tidy, with plenty of water, refuse and waste points."
"This is a clean, well-laid-out site with pretty flowers in patches throughout. Staff are very friendly and helpful. It's very reasonably priced over winter, too."
"Oakdown has immaculate facilities. The pitches are a good size and flat. The addition of Wi-Fi is a big bonus."
For nearly 40 years, the Franks Family has been carefully evolving Oakdown Touring Park from open meadowland to its current award-winning standard. There are no straight lines here: just gentle curves, spacious groves, seclusion, privacy and peace.
