Why stay here ...

Emmetts farm is located in beautiful East Devon (AONB) just on the Dorset border. The C.L. is situated on the side of the A3052 coast road that connects the seaside towns of Lyme Regis 5 miles to the East and Seaton 3 miles to the South. Both towns are gateway towns to the famous World Heritage Jurassic Coast.

The C.L. is easily accessed from the main road. Pitches are spacious and level and have both hard standings and grass, each come with individual water and 16 amp hookups. The C.L. is part of a small 40 acre sheep farm that is on the side of a hill that mostly overlooks the stunning Axe Valley.

The C.l. is very quiet peaceful and ideal for just relaxing with stunning views on all sides. To the east is a mature ancient deciduous wood land. Views to the south and west look across mostly farmland and the meandering flood plain of the lower reaches of the river Axe with views all the way to Seaton and the coast. Further upstream you can watch the Seaton and Colyton electric tram travel back and forth alongside the river Axe passing the Seaton Wetlands Nature Reserve. The tram travels daily between Seaton on the coast and goes inland as far as Colyton.

The nearest villages all within a two mile radius are Axmouth Colyford Musbury and Colyton. These are all lovely historic villages all steeped in local history and ideal for exploring. They all offer good food spoiling you for choice with pubs and restaurants.

There is a fenced fruit orchard ideal for walking well behaved dogs but please remember all Dogs on leads at all times please as its a sheep farm.

Great Site

Emmetts Farm
Super large hard standing pitches with great facilities and views. Lovely site. Allan is best tour guide ever especially for bike riders. He couldn’t have been more helpful with suggestions of activities and places to go.

The Perfect CL

Emmetts Farm
We have just returned from a perfect week’s stay on this lovely CL. Quite possibly the best site we have ever stayed on. The owner, Alan has left nothing to chance. The layout is perfect with generous spacing for each unit with it’s own EHU and water tap. The pitches are hard standing but also with grassy area. The views are stunning. The amenities Alan has provided are second to none and the CL is a credit to him. He is a mine of information and nothing is too much trouble for him. The location is perfect for Lyme Regis, Seaton and Sidmouth with a bus stopping outside the site. We are really looking forward to returning soon.

Just had a lovely stay at this site. Allan has done a wonderful job of creating this C.L. Site. Very spacious pitches, all hard standing with fresh water taps at every pitch. The toilet cassette emptying is second to none and he is in the process of building a toilet and shower block at the moment. We will definitely be returning hopefully next year.

Lovely site. Wish we could keep it a secret!!

Emmetts Farm
Just returned from Emmett’s Farm. We should have been staying for the New Year, but because of Covid and Devon being put into tier 3 we had to return after one night. Each pitch is huge and flat with complete hard standing and big grass spaces between each pitch. You also have your own tap and with 16amp to each pitch, it ticks all the boxes. Soon to have 2 toilets, a shower, washing machine and tumbler dryer. There is recycling and all bins are well marked and the cdp is clean and undercover. The views to Seaton are stunning and being a late December night, looked even better. Thank you Allan for setting up a fantastic CL. We will be back.
