Your holiday at Oakdown Touring Park starts with a warm welcome from the friendly reception team and resident wardens, whose sole aim is to help you enjoy your stay and ensure that your holiday runs smoothly. We take great care in allocating pitches to satisfy all requirements – please talk to reception when booking and we will do our best to accommodate your requests.
We welcome guests with touring caravans, motorhomes, tents, trailer tents and folding campers. We are able to accommodate R/V’s and American-style motorhomes, but these spaces are limited and early booking is advised. Click here to visit the tariffs page for more details. We are located just off the A3052 providing good access for all vehicles. There is a regular bus service – please follow the link timetables for local buses.
Our park is a popular choice for those looking for top quality touring and camping in Devon. Our AA Platinum-graded site is home to thousands of trees and shrubs and the pitches are level, closely mown and very generous in size with parking alongside your accommodation. We have non-serviced pitches, ideal for camping, serviced pitches with electrical hook-up and three of our spacious groves have super-serviced pitches with water, grey waste and electrical hook-up.
Oakdown is an ideal location for exploring our beautiful surroundings, visiting the Jurassic coast and experiencing many of our local attractions and festivals.
For safety’s sake we do not allow the use of firepits, bicycles, skateboards or flying of kites on the Park. If you would like to BBQ and need fire bricks, to protect the grass, please talk to reception.
Our seasonal pitches are a great way to have countless holidays throughout the year at Oakdown. You are able to locate your tourer for the whole season on a specific pitch and are welcome to use at your leisure. Family and friends can also benefit from using your seasonal pitch, with your permission! The only other charge you need to think about is your metered electricity and your winter storage fee.

Looking for something a little different? Why not come glamping in Devon at our park?
For a truly unique holiday experience, book a stay in one of our Shepherd’s Huts – these are pet free and sleep four.
The two Shepherd’s Huts, nestled into our Glamping Grove, are fitted in the same manner but are individually decorated making them two different experiences. They are equipped with tv/dvd, sofa and electric fire, comfy double bed (made up), sofa bed, mood lighting, breakfast bar, fridge, toaster, kettle and microwave. Outside you have the benefit of a breakfast table, two deckchairs and a chiminea BBQ – just bring the coals and the burgers!
Within the Shire we have other glamping accommodation. If you love camping but want a holiday, without the hassle of pitching, then our well equipped Barrel Pods (new this season) and the slightly larger Premier Pods are the perfect answer! They are fully insulated and double glazed and outside have the benefit of picnic benches and a couple of deck chairs for lounging. The pods sleep four guests and are dog friendly – so no kennel fees. They both have a double bed, two single beds, fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave. They offer lighting, heating & a double socket for real camping luxury!
