Woodland Springs Touring Park - Dog Friendly Camping & Glamping in DevonWoodland Springs Touring Park is Exclusively for Adults and is situated in a secluded and tranquil hamlet which is inside the beautiful Dartmoor National Park, Devon. We are an AA 5 Pennant Gold site and we welcome caravans, motor-homes and tents as well as have camping pods in the most natural surroundings, access to the site is excellent from the A30 with no narrow lanes to travel down. All dogs are welcome and at no charge. With the surroundings in mind, the Park has been maintained in keeping with the natural environment to encourage wildlife. Deer, foxes and rabbits are regular visitors and with over 45 species of birds seen on the park over the past few years. It makes an ideal base for bird watching. It is also a haven for insects, birds and small mammals. Our park changes greatly through the seasons. You can see a large variety of flora and fauna.
We are in the parish of Drewsteignton in the hamlet of Venton. For those of a more energetic persuasion, there are many invigorating walks for you and your dogs on the adjoining moor. and in the local area. Golf, fishing, swimming and horse riding are all to be found nearby and the sandy beaches of Devon are only a 45 minute drive. Woodland Springs' excellent central location and access to main routes make it an ideal base for touring Devon and Cornwall. Make sure you visit the nearby attractions of Castle Drogo, Spinsters Rock, Finch Foundry, Stone Lane Gardens incorporating The Mythic Garden, the Dartmoor Prison Museum and Bowden Hostas. There is also Fernworthy reservoir just outside Chagford that has some spectacular views whatever time of year you go. You must also visit Dartmoor itself. If you like to spend your time reading or painting and drawing Woodland Springs is the ideal place for you. It's also a great place to hide away and simply relax. The Park is usually attended and night time security is maintained by the gate being locked at 11:00 pm and reopened at 07:30 am. Chris and Jan live on site and are available if you have any questions, problems or need an extra pair of hands with your awning etc. We have been caravaner's for 30+ years and like to think we have a good idea of what our visitors would like.
The toilet blocks have free hot water and showers with indoor dishwashing and are also centrally heated during the colder months. These have won a 2019 Loo of the Year Platinum award and also won in previous years. Alongside the usual toilets and showers, the main block has full disabled facilities and a laundry.
We welcome dogs and other pets at no charge, including in our camping pods, and we also have Day Kennels for hire should you want to go somewhere you can not take the dogs. Our dog exercise area is about 1 acre in size and you can exercise them off the lead.
