A Devon tourist attraction is gearing up for its first full season offering luxury 'glamping' breaks following a £1.4 million investment.

Theme park operator Crealy launched a new camping facility on farmland adjacent to its Exeter site mid-way through the last holiday season, backing with funding support from Clydesdale Bank.

Boasting pitches and facilities described as five-star, it also offers holidaymakers the chance to stay in one of 18 fully furnished safari and medieval themed tents, enabling them to spend more time at the theme park.

Crealy chief executive Chris Down said: "We have more than one day's worth of attractions at the Park and we had been looking at ways which would enable our guests to stay and enjoy more of what we have to offer."

Crealy successfully trialled a "low-key" campsite with tent pitches and temporary facilities for four seasons, with its take-up convincing the business to invest further.
