Welcome to Wooda Lakes

Wooda Lakes is the perfect holiday location; set in 22 acres of grassland, woods and lakes in North Devon, and approximately 5 miles north of the market town of Holsworthy and 7 miles east of the Cornish coastal town of Bude.

All holiday lodges are situated on a south facing slope, with large private decks that enjoy the benefit of the mid-day and evening sun.

With just 12 rental well-spaced lodges on site, peace and quiet is the order of the day. Whether you while away the day relaxing on the deck with a good book, watch the abundance of local wildlife or venture down to the lakes for a spot of fishing, Wooda Lakes is the perfect place for you to unwind and recharge.

With far-reaching views towards Dartmoor, and being surrounded by the sandy Cornish beaches to the west, the wild rugged north Devon coast, and Exmoor to the east, Wooda Lakes sits within Devon’s “Ruby Country”. Here you can enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle, and experience some of the darkest nights in the country.

From Wooda Lakes, you can easily explore the local towns of Holsworthy and Bude or venture further afield as you explore Devon and Cornwall. Whether you take in the market towns with their hospitality and locally-produced goods; cycle, walk or horse-ride local trails; or immerse yourself in watersports and adventure activities,  Wooda Lakes is the perfect base for your stay in the Southwest.


Following the Government’s relaxation of the lockdown restrictions, we are once again open for holidays and day ticket fishing. However, please note the following changes to our operations which will remain in place until further notice:

Holiday Arrivals and Departures – Please note that arrivals are from 5pm and departures by 9am. This is following guidelines to allow us further time between guests to undertake a deeper clean of each lodge and to use disinfectant sprays to minimise the risks of Covid-19. Beds will be made up for your arrival (apart from sofa beds), but we are also asking guests to strip their beds, including the pillow and mattress protectors, on the day of their departure. The compliomentary Welcome packs (tea/coffee/biscuits/milk) have been withdrawn at this time. Upon arrival, please park at reception and stay in your vehicle; We will come to you and direct you to your accomodation. All cleaners are wearing PPE. We ask all guests to social distance while on site. The reception shop will have limited opening and guests entering the shop should wear a mask unless you have an medical exemption.

Day ticket fishing – We are open for limited day ticket fishing, which must be booked in advance. We are limiting numbers to ensure all day ticket anglers and holidaying anglers have sufficient room to social distance on the bankside. Two day ticket anglers are allowed per day on the Crucian & Tench pool, while 3 day ticket anglers are permitted on the Mixed Match, Carp match and Specimen Lakes. Tickets must be purchased online, in advance, through Castbooker or by telephoning us on 01409 241934. All anglers must follow our Additional Covid-19 rules.
