This open-plan holiday park is great for anyone who wants to move close to the Devonshire coast and countryside without feeling penned in.

It is a lovely picnic location, too. Communal outdoor tables and chairs are provided for residents, which means that you can enjoy the great outdoors from the comfort of your own private grounds.

Holmans Wood, much like its sister location at Finlake, is well-positioned near the main road, which means it is neither tricky to find nor hard to access. You will find the park based off the A38 leading down from Exeter towards Chudleigh. It is to the east of the Dartmoor National Park, and can actually be considered on the edge of the extensive region. You’ll be able to view the Park from afar, and you can actually head into the park zone by foot if you wish.
Holmans Wood Park is blanketed by miles of glorious greenery. The lush trees and stunning plains make up some of the best of Devon’s unspoilt countryside. By moving here, you will be right in the centre of some of the county’s best-loved natural retreats. With Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty to the south and cities to the north, you’re in a great location.
For all your daily needs, you can head over to Finlake, just up the road, or a few minutes down towards Chudleigh. Chudleigh is a small community which is friendly and welcoming to visitors. Once you set up a holiday home at Holmans Wood, you may find yourself getting to know the locals on a regular basis!
Holmans Wood is based in a prime location in the county. You’ll be in the perfect spot just between coast and country, which means the experience really is yours for the building.

You will be able to head to nearby communities as you wish, and there is never going to be a worry that you’ll feel isolated or cut off. If anything, it will be a lovely break just to escape light and noise pollution.
If you’re really not sure what you want from a Devon holiday, Holmans Wood offers up enough choice for you to mix it up as you go along. That’s partly why it is so popular with holidaymakers from all over.
The Local Area
Let’s take a quick look at what you can expect from the local area once you set up for holidays at the park. As mentioned, you are on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, one of the most spectacular and most imposing pieces of English countryside you will ever hope to see. However, did you know that you are also within reach of Exmoor National Park? This area of protected beauty is based just opposite Dartmoor, meaning you are never going to be too far from new walks and outdoor experiences.
If you’d prefer to take in local history and to explore Devon’s towns and cities, you should of course make a beeline for Exeter as a priority. This historic city is brimming with culture and all the city brands and fixtures you may be acquainted with elsewhere. If you fancy taking a break from all the countryside, you only have to head a few miles north into the city.
You'll also find an array of seaside communities out to the east and to the south of Holmans Wood. Take a look at Starcross to the east, and Maidencombe a little further south. Keeping heading this way and you will find the quintessential seaside town of Torquay. This wonderful little town really does present the best of the English seaside. If a coastal trip to the south east is on the cards, as well as a fish and chips supper, you are only ever a few minutes away.
You can, of course, explore Devon further to the north and to the west, too. You can also get rail links from Exeter and Torquay if you’d like to travel even further afield. Make sure to plan your journeys ahead of time! Alternatively, take the A38 if you’re driving, and you’ll find plenty of local hotspots opening up to you as you drive around. Prepare your maps and/or GPS and get exploring.
