Our Holiday Park's Facilities ~
At Andrewshayes you will find all the facilities you need to make your holiday a special one.
Free Indoor Heated Pool
Our large swimming pool is covered by an amazing retractable enclosure. This means you can enjoy the pool from April until the end of October regardless of what the weather may be doing. The pool is heated by a combination of solar panels and a heat exchanger so we can keep it warm all the time. It is also surrounded by a lovely patio area and ideal for a day by the pool or to cool off after a day out sightseeing.
Use of the pool is free for all Andrewshayes customers. Please note we do not have a life guard on duty so children under 14 must be supervised by an adult when swimming.
Over looking the swimming pool (and part of the bar area in the evening) is a lovely flower filled conservatory. This is available for use during the day as a place to relax and watch the swimmers. There is also a coffee machine for your use. In the evenings enjoy a drink from the bar. Dogs are allowed in the conservatory.
Andrewshayes Holiday Park – Bar and Cafe / Takeaway
You can enjoy a quiet evening drink in our friendly Bar, which is open Friday and Saturday nights all season and daily in the school holidays from 6pm to 11pm. We have entertainment on some Saturday nights in the summer and usually play a game of Bingo on Sunday evenings throughout the busy weeks.
Our cafe / takeaway service is a great option after a busy day, serving burgers, pizzas and fish and chips etc as well as breakfasts at the weekends during school holidays in the recently refurbished seating area. The takeaway is situated behind the Bar and is open in the evenings from 5.30pm daily from mid July to the end of the school holidays and over Bank Holidays weekends. Please call us to check opening times to avoid disappointment.
Andrewshayes Games Room
At Andrewshayes the relaxed and safe atmosphere allows children the freedom to play around the park and they soon make new friends.
Our Games Room facility is well received by all ages. This is situated next to our reception for indoor play, there are various video machines, air hockey and a pool table for the older children.
Andrewshayes Toddler Play Room
In the same building as the Games Room there is a separate small soft play room to help keep the little ones happy (suitable for children 6 and under who must be supervised). There are also some toddler toys and books to enjoy.
Andrewshayes Outdoor Play Areas
Outside for the younger children there is an enclosed adventure play park, shaded by a mature oak tree and with a safe bark surface there are swings, a playhouse with a slide and a climbing frame. It is situated opposite outdoor seating area of the the bar / cafe which means you can enjoy a drink or snack whilst watching your children play.
For the older children and the young at heart we have a playing field for football and other outdoor games. This is the only area we permit ball games.
There is an outdoor table tennis table near the reception, bats and balls available from reception.
Andrewshayes Shop & Reception
Our reception doubles as a small shop selling self-catering essentials as well as ice-creams, sweets, postcards and a few other camping essentials including Calor Gas. Newspapers are available between mid July and the end of August or can be ordered at receptions on the weekends outside these dates.
For your main shopping needs we are only a five minute drive to local shops and supermarkets in Axminster or the lovely Millers Farm Shop in Kilmington just off the A35. In Dalwood village (1 1/2 miles) there is a small village shop.
Andrewshayes Nature Trail
To encourage the younger ones to build on their knowledge of flora and fauna we have a nature trail with information boards around the site, question sheets are available from reception. Or why not see how much you already know and have a go at our true or false nature quiz, forms and answers available from reception.
Ask in reception about our lovely new woodland walk that we have developed – this brand new plantation of deciduous trees has earned us a Special Distinction from David Bellamy and is perfect for a half hour wander or makes a lovely picnic spot.

There is also a free freezer for your freezer packs and microwave, especially useful to warm baby’s milk or even a microwave dinner!
At each refuse point we have recycling facilities for glass and plastic bottles, tins and cans, paper and cardboard. Batteries can be taken to reception for recycling.
Andrewshayes Information room
There is so much to explore in the Devon/Dorset and Somerset countryside, our information room next to the reception with its many leaflets and events posters will help you choose. Our bird, animal and insect posters will help you identify the deer you can see from the dog walking area or the butterfly alighting near the apple trees in the playing field.
Book Exchange – If a lazy day by the pool is called for you might find something to your liking in the book/magazine exchange or settle down with the kids to tackle a jigsaw.
Check our Facebook or Twitter page for regular updates for local events and “what’s on”.
Andrewshayes is Dog Friendly
We welcome well-behaved dogs at Andrewshayes and provide a large field for exercising. Opposite the park entrance there is another field with a walk around the perimeter or through a gate into our woodland area, a tree planting project given a David Bellamy Special Distinction Award.
Don’t want to leave your canine friend in the car when you are visiting a local attraction? Ask in reception for a local kennel or approved dog lovers who will help you with doggie day care.
Andrewshayes Club WiFi
