Next Generation Wi-Fi Installation

Thank you for your patience over the past couple of months, unfortunately our supply chain issues have caused delays to many of our projects across the group.

We will contact you all to let you know when we will require access to your holiday home to carry out the installation of this equipment. Please be assured that the current system will remain in place until the new system has passed all testing and is ready to be rolled out across the park.  

If you have any problems logging in when you return to park, please do call the Infinium service desk on 01253 501655 where a member of the team will support you. If you have any questions with regards to the new service, please do feel free to contact Ben who can support your queries.

David Bellamy Blooming Marvellous Update

At Holmans Wood we have installed some large planters around the park ready for the spring, as well as spreading wildflower seeds around the meadow. The pond is also a focus area for us as we plan on planting a new willow tree, as part of the Queens green canopy initiative in celebration of her majesty’s platinum jubilee. Our woodland walks recently received some much-needed attention, and we plan to continue to make improvements and additions in this area moving forward 

Over at Devon Hills we have made and installed more new bird and bug boxes around park, all in the hope that we can help our animal friends nest in a safe and appropriate environment. We have also recently planted the makings of a herb garden on Blagdon Way – we very much look forward to sharing its progress with you soon.  

At Dartmoor View, the next few weeks will see our Spring work completed with the introduction of a new pathway through the woods in Tor View and the installation of a new bug hotel in this same area. We will also be working on the picnic area, and I hope you can all enjoy this as the year progresses.  

Looking to Praa Sands The new bird boxes have been appearing in our trees over the last couple of weeks and months in time for the roosting season, have you managed to spot them all?  

If you are keen to hear more about our David Bellamy Blooming Marvelous Pledge for Nature, or even roll your sleeves up and get involved, please contact or visit your parks reception.
