About this Award-winning Holiday Park
Churchwood Valley is a beautiful, naturally wooded four star holiday park spread across 75 acres and running right down to the sea at Wembury Bay in South Devon. The beach is only ten minutes' walk away and spectacular coastal walking surrounds the park heading west to Mountbatten and the water taxi across to Plymouth, or east towards the stunning River Yealm and estuary. At the estuary a ferry will take you across to pretty Newton Ferrers with its character shops and the Dolphin Inn or Noss Mayo with two great pubs. This environmental paradise has been awarded the David Bellamy Conversation Gold Award 23 years in a row, a feat only matched by a few parks in the South West.
If you're looking to truly get away from it all then this is the place. There are no noisy nightclubs, bars and cafes to worry about, only wildlife, rock pools and stunning scenery.
Cabins sit in fantastic woodland setting surrounded by a mix of trees, hedges, flowering shrubs and charming rustic fences. All have their own plot on the hillside and views across the valley. Some also have views across the water meadow or look towards the sea.
One parking space is allocated to each property and there is direct access to the beach via private roads and paths.
All Cabins feature:
A private parking space and a fully equipped kitchen with fridge, freezer, cooker and microwave, cutlery, crockery and glasses. Each has a fitted bathroom or shower room, a flat-screen TV, DVD player and a clock radio.

Churchwood Valley is rich in wildlife. The park includes a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI), and our beach is included in a voluntary marine conservation arrea. A Marine Centre sits just above the Old Mill Cafe and serves as a base for wardens who offer guided rockpool rambles during the summer season.
The park has a licensed shop selling food and drink, beach toys and gifts. There's also a fully equipped launderette and a recycling centre.
Our Forest School Holiday Club also operates during the summer months across our woodland and offers hours of outdoor fun for children aged 5 to 13 years. Activities include bush craft, beach trips, team skills and mini beast safaris. Find out more on our website.
Special to Churchwood Valley Holiday Cabins
Churchwood Valley is committed to preserving it's wonderful natural setting and the habitats for mammals, birds and insects. Over the years, the shop, information room and new cabins have been clad in chestnut, fences have been made of Monterey pine and elm cladding has applied inside - all this wood has been grown, planked and seasoned right here at Churchwood.
Other Things to Note
Please note, the park is naturally hilly so only a few cabins will be suitable for disabled guests. Please contact us directly to discuss your needs with staff when making your booking.
