Fantastic Site, owners very welcoming and always on hand to assist.

We visit this site regularly all year round. It is a wonderful site with many facilities including washing and drying machines, £1 coins required. Freshly laid chicken and ducks eggs, as well as fresh produce in the summer to purchase. The site has been upgraded to include Large Hard Standing pitches, which has been a welcome asset to us as we can visit for longer stays during the winter months in our Motorhome. Wonderful location to explore three Counties, Devon, Dorset and Somerset. Regular bus route to explore the Jurassic Coast. Local garage, Spar shop with post office. Further more, take a walk along to the Lyme Bay winery just down the road.

Wonderful site!

Arriving after a long journey and three weeks from home, the washing machine and tumble dryer were welcome finds! Welcomed by Mr Harris on his grass cutter, this man does not stop working! Beautiful site, the nearest group of houses has a spar shop garage, and a good pub. But we were doing the tourist bit and found it easy to get to the area from here. You will need £1 coins (old ones as I write ) for washing machine and tumbler, the toilets are in the same building and good/clean. Four of the sites have their own water tap, near their electric point. We fused ours using too many things once, and the fuse was at the house, not at the point. No problem, always someone at home!

Lovely site but don't expect 5 vans!

This is a lovely site, with excellent facilities (2 toilets, laundry facilities, library and seasonal produce are available). It is in a great area for exploring East Devon and West Dorset. The main field is large and open and there is a smaller, more enclosed area at the bottom of the site, which the owners call the "Royal Enclosure". This section is more sheltered and is closer to the facilities, but can feel a little cramped if 4 vans (its capacity) are here. Question: What more could we want? Answer: The owners to obey the 5 van rule and not accept up to 12 units, as was the case during our stay. There were never fewer than 8 units and there were at least 10 for the bulk of our fortnight, peaking at 12 for 4 nights. We had expected to be sited on the main field. This gives more open views and is what one sees when researching the site on Google Maps. However, we were placed in the "Royal Enclosure" and we should have guessed that the 5 van rule was never going to be honoured, as the main field accommodates up to 8 vans on its own. While we were there, quite a bit of building work was going on with tractors toing and froing in our section and various noise emanating from the nearby barn. It would have been nice if Mr Harris had explained what was going on, and maybe apologised for the noise, but nothing was mentioned. Luckily the works were not every day but there was some disturbance throughout our stay. Many members return here and for them the 5 van rule may not be important. However, for those like us who are first time visitors and place great importance on the intimacy of a 5 van CL, it completely changed the feel of the site. It would be a shame if Millands Farm was removed from the CL register, as it is a high quality site.

Wonderful Peaceful Site

We had our first experience of staying on a CL site a couple of weeks ago when we stayed at Millands Farm with our 2 dogs. It is a really lovely site with huge pitches so plenty of room for our caravan, awning and car. Everyone staying on the site was very friendly and Mr and Mrs Harris the site owners were really helpful and made us feel very welcome. Easy access to nearby coastal villages with lots of choice for great places to eat. When we are next in South Devon we will definitely stay here again

Fantastic site

Fantastic site. Lovely location. What a gem - large pitches with plenty of space and lovely views. The site is very well maintained with short grass and spotless facilities. Mr and Mrs Harris are very welcoming and helpful and nothing is too much trouble. This is a site people keep coming back to year after year and we can understand why. Definitely a place to unwind and relax.
