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.

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

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.

Great CL

Great CL with enormous hard standing pitches with more than enough room for caravan, awning and car side by side. Water and EHU to each pitch, easy grey waste disposal and the best Elsan disposal point that you will ever find! Some road noise but nothing too intrusive and quiet at night. Allan is very helpful and has great local knowledge for places of interest and walks.

Tranquility amidst Covid

I've just returned from 4 nights at Emmetts Farm, a more peaceful retreat could not be wished for. All pitches have their own tap and electrical hook up so the only communal things you have to touch are the grey water tap, the Elsan flush and hand wash basin and the entrance gate, perfect for anybody who is considered vulnerable to infection through age or medical condition. The Site has marvellous views over the Axe Valley and on Allen's advice I took a kayak on the Axe which is a charming little river. Allan is the perfect host, not intrusive but available to give advice and guidance, and he has created a charming site. This is a new site offered to a very high standard and Allan is working on a shower ,toilet and laundry within the barn where the Elsan point is found to be opened some time in 2021. Axminster, Axmouth and Seaton are a short drive away where there are pubs, supermarkets and takeaway food.There is a local bus service and although the bus stop is not close Allan told us the bus could be flagged down outside, and he plans to extend the width of the driveway at the entrance to help facilitate this. It was mostly dry thought my stay, one day I travelled further into Devon and it poured down all afternoon. That night as I drove back to the caravan it was still raining on the A35 and when I turned off onto the A358, but by the time I reached Musbury it had not only stopped raining but the roads were bone dry. When I asked Allen about it he said that the location enjoyed a very mild micro climate, and although it did rain on occasion it was rare. I had a dog with me and she loved it, there is a dog walk around a small orchard (check out the lovely views from Allan's agricultural bench). The local pub in Axmouth is dog friendly, has a lovely beer garden and served great food. I was tempted to give this a poor rating to deter people from going so that there would always be availability for me but for a CL things don't get much better. This is no building site and I doubt anybody would be aware of the ongoing improvements but when Allan completes the works it will be hard to better.

What a fantastic site Allan is creating

Just back from a lovely week at this new CL. Easy access, lovely flat all service pitches with beautiful views over the Axe Valley down to the sea at Seaton. Allan is still adding to the facilities of this site which is already well worth a visit, but don’t all book at once, leave space for us next time we want to book. Allan is a fount of knowledge about the local area, nature, wildlife and even stars which he is always willing to share. Well done Allan you are doing a great job.
