Devon for kids

Annabelle's verdict
Simplicity is key on a family short-break, and the beauty of a stay at Crealy is that whether you want to camp, glamp or live it up in a luxury lodge, the adventure park is just next door. Kids will love the animal attractions and variety of rides, while the 100 acres of Devon countryside are a perfect antidote for stressed parents.

Recommended short break: Crealy Adventure Park & Resort

Crealy Adventure Park & Resort says

Whether you are looking for a fun day out in the west country for all the family or a short break with an adventure park on site, Crealy is the answer.

Set in 100 acres of East Devon countryside, yet just moments from Exeter and the M5, Crealy is the South West’s number one family attraction.

Our indoor and outdoor rides and attractions appeal to all ages – from Junior Driving School and Dino Dig for little ones to the adrenalin-pumping Vortex water-coaster and The Twister rollercoaster.

Meerkat Manor, Animal Barn and Animal Land are amongst the wildlife and animal encounters on offer and there’s a fantastic Soak Zone for fun in the water.

The best way to enjoy all of this and more is to stay in glorious countryside at Crealy Meadows, right next door to the park, and with entry tickets included in the price.

We offer two- and three-bedroom luxury lodges, each with an outdoor hot tub, decking, top of the range kitchen and central heating.

How about themed glamping? Choose from the Medieval Pavilions or Safari Lodges – all sleep up to eight with excellent kitchen facilities and, in some, there’s a wood burning stove.

Camping is also an option – book your own tent, caravan or motorhome pitch and enjoy use of our superb on site facilities – there’s even under-floor heating in the shower block!

Live shows are amongst our regular special events. If you are planning a group visit, you’ll find lots of useful information here.

If you’re staying in the area and come for the day, we will validate your theme park ticket so you can return as many times as you like for the following six days, free of charge.
