About the home
This is a privately owned chalet, on the edge of Bideford Bay Holiday Park, with a stretch of grass in front, then nothing but wooded slopes between the chalet and the sea. In season (easter - end october) the site has many facilities including a shop, indoor and outdoor heated swimming pools, all weather sports court, reception, launderette, children's play area, adventure playground, crazy golf, and organized activities and entertainment. Passes are needed to use some of the facilities and for the entertainment programme.
Ideal for 4 but expandable to 6 using sofa bed.
Out of season it is a nature lover's and walker's delight. The surrounding woodland is managed by the Woodland Trust and the Park itself has a David Bellamy Conservation Award. Site facilities are closed from November to late March and the site is very quiet. A shop and post office are available at Bucks Cross when the site shop is closed.

The chalet is 2 mins from the facilities which a big bonus on a large hilly site.
Its well equipped and clean.
The sofa is very uncomfortable and the beds are very hard.
Plan to replace the sofa bed for 2013 season

+ The accomodation was very well equiped, clean and in a great location in the park and in close reach of all the great places to visit in North Devon.
The holiday park felt very warm, welcoming and great for families.
The entertainment was good(we even had an outdoor music festival on the sunday, great fun for all) and the staff very friendly, helpful and full of energy.
- The premises felt a bit compact with one hall for all activities(meals, children clubs, and evening entertainment) and would benefit from further development.

We had a lovely family holiday with our two young children and a baby.
Would recommend. Lynette was very easy to deal with. The chalet was as described, clean and tidy and had everything we needed. It had a great location on the site, secluded but near to the Manor house, children's play area and swimming pools. In a lovely part of Devon with lots to see and do. Westward Ho! beach was ideal for bodyboarding and safe for the children. The nearby Buck's Mill beach was ideal for rockpooling and Appledore was great for fish and chips, locally made icecream and watching the boats. The boys enjoyed the nearby Milky way theme park. Shopping was easy with an Asda and outlet village just down the road.
We'd love to come again soon
