We started our summer of fun with a fantastic stay at Crealy Meadows Caravan and Campsite just outside Exeter in Devon. We were invited to go glamping there and had a brilliant couple of days.
Considering it was one of the busiest travel days of the year – Saturday 23 July, we had a smooth, trouble free fairly quick journey to the site which we found with no problems at all.
Reception staff were really friendly, and told us where our medieval tent was all ready and waiting for us.
The tent was awesome, with a wooden kitchen, aga, futon settee, wooden table and chairs and beds. It was a scorching hot day, so it was super warm inside, but not unbearable. We didn’t need to light the wood burner, but can imagine on cooler days it would be so warm and cosy. There were bags of kindling wood and logs provided too., as well as a fire pit outside. The kitchen had a fridge, kettle, toaster and all the crockery and utensils we needed. It really was camping in luxury. In front of the tent was wooden decking with outdoor table and chairs.
Mummy was busy being a blogger taking photos and heard someone call her name – it was Kara from Chelsea Mamma who was staying opposite us! We spent some time together – particularly playing in the nearby play area which I loved.
The site has pitches for tourers and tents, the Medieval tents, Safari tents – which are also glamping tents and lodges. It was spacious and really well kept. The toilet block was the best we have ever seen, with under floor heating, touch showers and plenty of loos, together with baby changing facilities, radio and hairdryer.
In the reception building there was a small but well stocked, really well priced shop selling all the essentials. There is no cafe or restaurant but you have the option to go over to Crealy Park after opening hours for food, the indoor play centre and entertainment.
We have stayed at a few campsites – and Mummy has stayed at loads before I was born, and she was really impressed with this site and would definitely stay again. We had a brilliant time as you can see – I absolutely loved it. Look out for our review of Crealy Great Adventure Park coming very soon.
