Churchwood Valley is a beautiful, natural wooded valley running down to the sea at Wembury Bay in South Devon, near Plymouth. Look closely and, hidden among the lush green foliage, you’ll see wooden cabins nestling on the hillside.

A haven of peace within an environmental paradise, Churchwood Valley is a few minutes’ walk from a safe family beach and the South West Coast Path.

If ‘getting away from it all’ is the most important part of your holiday – Churchwood Valley is for you. Each cabin has its own plot on the hillside, surrounded by trees, flowering shrubs, hedges and rustic fences. By moving no further than your armchair, you’ll see delightful displays of birdlife and a trip to your private patio may well afford a glimpse of badgers, foxes, squirrels and other wildlife.

There are no discos, bars, or cafes – just rock pools, wildlife, and breathtaking scenery. Secluded it may be, isolated it is not. Churchwood’s licensed shop sells a wide range of food and drink, beach toys, gifts, and many other products, so you don’t even need to leave the site for those ‘essential’ items. We also have a fully equipped launderette. If you feel the need for a more extensive shop, or have a taste for the bright lights, the city of Plymouth is just a 20 minute drive away.

Each holiday cabin has its own plot on the hillside, surrounded by trees, flowering shrubs, hedges and rustic fences. All our cabins have views across the valley, with some looking out over the water meadow or towards the sea.

There’s a car parking space near each cabin and private roads and paths give access to the beach, an unspoiled stretch of rock pools and shingle with sand at low tide. Adjoining National Trust land, the beach is no more than a 10-minute stroll away from any of the cabins.

Up to two well-behaved dogs are welcome in each cabin, for a small charge, and dog exercise areas are provided.

Churchwood Valley is home to over a hundred different species of bird including the rare Cirl Bunting, whose habitat includes a Site of Special Scientific Interest, part of which is on our land. Our beach is part of a voluntary marine conservation area and the Marine Centre just above the Old Mill Café provides an interpretation centre and a base for wardens who guide the frequent rockpool rambles in the summer months.

Over many years, many cabins and other buildings, have all been clad in chestnut, Monterey pine and elm – all grown, planked and seasoned at Churchwood. We also look to use low energy light bulbs wherever possible and phosphate-free cleaning agents to help protect the environment. Whenever we renew or replace buildings or equipment, we research what is available that is good for the environment.

We have won a Gold Conservation Award for no less than 24 years in a row from the David Bellamy Conservation Award Scheme. This represents one for every year the accolade has been awarded and we are very proud to be one of the few holiday parks to have achieved this.

Lovely stay in Churchwood Valley

Clarke, Louise - 10/04/2024

Had a lovely stay at Churchwood Valley. It wouldn't be for everyone with lots of stairs and steep hills. Our 5 year old twins loved the horse riding and the beach. We were close to 2 Zoos and Plymouth with the aquamarine so we had places to go with the children. The cabin had all we needed but could do with updated furniture.

This was our second stay at Churchwood. It is a peaceful haven, remote yet easy to travel to and from. Love the proximity to the beach and the cafe, and the cabins have everything you need for a relaxing stay. Thank you.

Our second stay and it was still as lovely as the first! Even though we had rain it was still warm, clean and cosy in our cabin so we didn’t mind! As we had lots to look out for with the squirrels feeding at our bird table!The dog loved his long walk along the coast stopping for lunch about 2 miles away in the Eddystone Inn. The coastline is beautiful and well worth a walk to view Noss Mayo. You can catch a ferry in the summer however as we’re out of season it wasn’t operating which wasn’t a problem as the view was idyllic!! Would come back again anytime of year!

Beautiful! Peaceful, tranquil and very relaxing

We love this place! 3rd time we’ve stayed here in 12yrs. Always with 2 big chilled dogs. Fact the area is so quiet, so close to nature & has lots of beautiful walks on our doorstep is a big plus! Birds are lovely. Beaches/cliffs..great walks. Wifi so much better this year than previous which, was a welcomed surprise. Well managed & communicated instructions. Could have done with shop being open/stocked up of fresh foods but early season & got by, by walking down to local shop/having dinner at a lovely local pub. The only improvement opportunities we commented on:- blinds in lounge & kitchen very dirty / need replacing (bedroom ones lovely)- garden area could do with a ‘gate’ to secure private area & give some degree of privacy, we had a few people look directly into our lounge area & had to pull the patio curtain across for privacy. Appreciate the openness of these areas/trying to keep the fencing natural looking but other cabins had privacy gate & would also aid dog/child safety

Response from the owner

05 April 2024

Thank you for leaving us such a great review. We really appreciate your feedback and are taking steps to sort out those blinds which you mentioned. We are also commencing a phase of tree and hedge planting and will definitely look at ways in which we can improve the privacy at this cabin. We hope you will book again before too long.

Fabulous location and wildlife retreat

Cornes, Lynne - 02/04/2024

Everything went smoothly for our late March adventure. Booking was easy and all was well organised and welcoming on arrival. Our cabin was spotlessly clean and we had everything we needed. We were soon exploring the beach which us only a short walk away. The big wow though is the location and the tranquility of wooded valley next to the coast. We were serenaded by birdsong in fact the small cheeky bluetits settled unfazed on the window ledges of the lodge very often! We spotted voles, weasels during our stay and heard foxes and owls from twilight. The staff are extremely friendly and knowledgeable for anything needed, but mostly allow you to enjoy this little slice of heaven without interruption. We enjoyed the Torpoint ferry, Mount Edgcumbe, Cawsand and Kingsand via a spectacular drive along Freathy cliffs (not to be missed) and spent time on Plymouth Hoe on the barbican only an easy drive away. Churchwood has been dog friendly for many years, an added bonus.
