Putts Corner Caravan Club Site is well located amidst idyllically quiet and pretty surroundings. In the spring a truly memorable display of bluebells, followed by foxgloves can be seen to add heightened charm to your holiday. As well as the glorious bounty of flowers on display, you will be able to experience a wide variety of bird life and even the occasional deer. There is a choice of scenic walks leading from the caravan site into Gittisham, and from Beer you can take the lovely coastal path to Branscombe. If you would prefer a tranquil riverside walk, then Ottery St Mary is sure to delight.

The town of Sidmouth can be found conveniently close to Putts Corner Caravan Club Site. A restful resort with a long pebble beach and Donkey Sanctuary, its famous International Folklore Festival in August is not to be missed. The caravan site also puts you within easy reach of Honiton, an attractive Georgian town with many antique and speciality shops selling everything from elegant lace to pottery. For those who enjoy a spot of shopping, the local market is held on Tuesdays and Saturdays and for the thirsty a traditional pub is a mere 180 metres away. In the nearby area, the colourful seaside town of Lyme Regis situated in the heart of the Jurassic Coast, is a renowned centre for fossil hunting. The city of Exeter offers great shopping and dining options, Cathedral gardens, and also the opportunity for lovely walks and bike rides alongside the canal.

Fine except for lukewarm/cold showers

4 out of 5

Well run club site as usual apart from having a chilly shower about 9.30 pm in the new shower block. Wrapped myself in a towel to see if it was just the one shower but no joy! Husband and I both experienced this. Warden stated that this happens at times because of low water pressure but this isn`t the sort of thing one expects on a full facility site with the higher prices.

Beware of Car Hire

Lovely site. Pleasant Wardens. Facilities as expected. On arrival at the site we had very little choice of pitches which is fair enough when the site is almost full. We ended up on a pitch which was the best one available. It was sloping from back to front and also side to side which meant to get the motorhome level I would have needed a lot more ramps than anybody would normally carry so we did the best we could. I asked the warden if we could be told who would be leaving in the next few days so that we could move from where we were. I was told he could't tell us as there had been complaints from people saying they had been pestered by people who wanted the pitch they were on. I certainly wouldn't pester anybody and I don't think anybody else would. I think you are less likely to pester anybody if you keep an eye out to see if anybody is showing signs of moving and just ask if it's ok to put a sign on the pitch to show that it has been taken. Beware if you are hiring a car from Enterprise as they will not deliver to Putts Corner as it is too far from the nearest depot which is in Exeter. It cost us about £14 in bus fare to get to Exeter to collect the car but they did bring us back when we returned the car. Quite a remote site so transport does make things easier as bus service is not punctual as the local bus travels from Exeter to Monition which is a fair distance so delays are regular. Some noise as planes do fly over enroute to and from Exeter Airport but not too bad. My standard comment still applies to not being prepared to pay for Wifi. Come on CC and provide wifi freely as most places are nowadays.

Devon Delight

4 out of 5

We arrived onto a very busy site and had to take a grass pitch rather than one with a hard standing which was a little disappointing. However, once the awning was up we relaxed into the quiet rural ambience. The staff were helpful and courteous at all times and the local fish and chips (delivered to site) were delicious.
