What’s new for 2016?

Last year over 14,000 families returned to our Parks and this year we’ve got even more new and exciting features thanks to over £5 million invested in activities, entertainment and accommodation. So whether you’ve been before or this is your first time, there’s something new to really ‘wow’ you!

New entertainment & leisure complex

Our biggest project this year is a massive redevelopment of the entertainment complex at Woolacombe Bay. It’ll be making the most of the amazing views looking west over the Atlantic Ocean and will include a new all day café

bar with a huge sea view terrace, entertainment venue, feature film cinema, a craft hut, indoor soft play area, improved amusement arcade and reception. Plus there’s a new expanded indoor pool with a toddler’s play zone with pirate ship feature, family changing village and gym all linked nicely to the outdoor pool. It’s our real premium-Park experience.

New caravans

We have brand new caravans with the latest stylish designs to stay in. There’s brand new Exclusive caravans at Golden Coast, Woolacombe Bay and Twitchen House, and the latter two Parks have brand new sea view Exclusive caravans in the very best positions right on the very front row. At Woolacombe Bay we have also added more Platinum caravans, which was that Park’s most ‘in demand’ range last year. Talking of most in demand, we’ve expanded the stunning Gold Woodland special edition caravan range introduced last year with more new models. Plus, we’ve got new Gold caravans at Woolacombe Bay too and they’ll now guarantee double glazing when upgrading to a new model.

New lodges

They’re our next generation of lodges coming to a secluded new development at Woolacombe Bay. These lodges with hot tubs feature a stunning West Country surf decor, a full wall of glass and feature fire place. There’s extra luxuries too with all mod cons like a big fridge-freezer, 50-inch TV in the lounge and televisions in every bedroom plus a luxurious en-suite with shower to the master bedroom – with king size bed – in addition to the family bathroom where you can relax in the bath looking up at the stars through the velux roof window. They’re going to be totally radical!

We’re also giving the bedrooms in our popular Exclusive lodges at Golden Coast a super trendy new look too and they’ll all be refreshed ready for Easter.

More pet friendly Holiday Homes

We’ve increased the number of pet friendly holidays at many of our Devon Holiday Parks. We’ve got Silver Apartments at Golden Coast, more Platinum caravans at Woolacombe Bay and more Beach Retreat caravans at Twitchen House. Plus this year sees the return of pet friendly Exclusive caravans at Twitchen House. But our pet friendly accommodation always books up quickly!

Bed linen & beds made up

In all our accommodation we now include bed linen and beds made up on arrival. So it’s extra value and a great start to your holiday.

Improved free WiFi

We’re improving the coverage with our free WiFi hotspots in our venues at all our Parks. From Easter you’ll be able to browse the internet, post on social media and check your emails with ease. You’ll also be able to upgrade to stream music and download videos.


New entertainment & activities

Our entertainment is always a holiday highlight and we’ve got new activities in our free kid’s clubs like sand art, geocaching and Magic Club Revealed.

Billy & Betty, our lovable beach ball characters, have a brand new interactive show called Once Upon The Beach. And from May half term our summer pantomime is back this year with Belle, a fast moving twist on the traditional fairy tale.

In the evening there’s brand new original production shows Carnival – join us on the road to the Rio Olympics – and Vinyl Revival. We’ve lined up more live guest acts too including party bands, comedians and magicians to name a few.

We’ve made our Sports Pass even better value too. You can now use it on virtually every coached sports activity and you now how the flexibility to choose how many points you buy and how you share them among your family. Plus there’s up to 25% off when you pre-purchase your passes before your arrival day.

Golden Coast opens at February half term and our other Parks open in March.
