Woodlands Park Devon?
 
Anyone ever stayed here? http://www.woodlands-caravanpark.com/family-holidays/

If so would you recomend it ? I need to find a campsite that can entertain a 11 year and 16 year old ? Are there any nice beaches near by?
Thanks in advance

The 11 year olds will be entertained by Woodlands - the 16 year olds might be. Close to Dartmouth and hence the Ferry across to Torbay so plenty going on there to keep them amused.

Keeping a 16 year-old amused (of either gender) on holiday is tough - just back from two weeks of it .... ;)

We took my daughter there 2 weeks ago for her 2nd birthday, its a pretty cool place to be honest although she was just slightly too short for most of the rides but the farm is great. My 12 and 14 year old nephews came as well and they loved it.

As for beaches you're close to Bantham/Bigbury and they have the advantage of car parks close to the beach. There's also a really nice beach cafe and you can walk over to Burgh Island.

Raggedy's nieces love it there and would go every week if they could :lol:

I'll keep an eye out for you in the campsite if we drive past :)

We were at Bigbury on Sunday - we bumped into a friend's Mum. Not so strange, but it's a friend from Kent :eek: :lol:

Im shocked how cheap it is as its 48 a day family of 4 for theme park.. If you camp you get a daily pass into the park free :p Also free access wildlife/falconry centre:D

Just looked at that blackpool beach near by .. it looks beautiful :D

We are gonna wild camp at Exmouth beach on the way and Tiegnmouth beach on way home too :)
