Holiday caravans in Devon
We offer self-catering holiday caravans for weekly stays and short breaks. Sleeping up to 6 in 2 bedrooms they make an ideal base from which to explore East Devon, Exmoor, Dartmoor and local towns and cities such as Exeter, Honiton and Taunton. Some of our holiday caravans are pet-friendly.
Camping and touring in Devon
Touring caravans, motor homes and tents are welcome on our flat, sheltered pitches. Many have electric hook-ups and we have hard standings and grass pitches available.
Our big camping field, the Five Acre Field, is great for families, groups of friends, scouts, guides, and rallies. Pets are welcome. We use this mainly in the summer holidays.
Glamping in Devon
New to Forest Glade in 2013 our camping pods have been specially designed for us. Sleeping up to 4 they are a cosy alternative to camping.

Facilities on the park include a free covered heated swimming pool, sauna, shop with off-licence and take away, children's play areas, games room, tennis court and forest walks. Our central amenities building provides free hot showers, family and parent and baby rooms, washing up facilities, a laundry room and a campers kitchen.

As peace and quiet is an important ingredient of a holiday at Forest Glade, we do not have a club, bar or evening entertainment. There are however several excellent local pubs, the nearest being 2.5 miles away.
Pets are welcome on the park and the 300 acres of forest surrounding the park provide plenty of space for exercise. There is a maximum of 2 dogs per unit (except by special arrangement). Please note that we do not have an enclosed exercise area for your pet(s). The forest is just that, with no surfaced paths, so please come prepared!
We are sorry but we are unable to accommodate single sex groups or groups of young people.
Forest Glade Holiday Park has five types of holiday caravan available for short breaks and for stays of a week or more throughout the season.
Why not book a caravan for your family holiday? You would be surprised how well equipped and spacious they are. Our three bedroom holiday caravans comfortably sleep 6, or even 8 using the sofa bed. Why not bring the grandparents or spread the cost and share with your friends.
