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.

Fabulous site

Emmetts Farm
Just spent 4 nights at this lovely site - very peaceful, clean and tidy and an excellent view. Owner Allan is a real gent, several visits to make sure all was well, offered info on the area, lives next to the site and is always available if you need him. Site has easy access directly off the main road, security lighting and a gated entrance with good pull-in. Thank you Allan, we will visit again :)

Great CL, convenient for the Axe valley, Seaton, Sidmouth etc. Good access, large pitches with fresh water and metered EHU. Allan is friendly and helpful. Donkey Sanctuary close by well worth a visit, free to park & enter, great cafe.

Outstanding in every respect

Emmetts Farm
Just a brief three night stay to give us a break. What a great choice. We had checked out this site a couple of years ago but could not get in but aren’t we glad that we could on this occasion. The location is just about as perfect as it could possibly be with stunning views in all directions, but a pitch was ideally positioned to catch the beautiful sunsets. Everything about the site has been created to provide the best experience – it’s always great to have a personal water supply as well as EH, you Everything about the site has been created to provide the best experience – it’s always great to have a personal water supply as well as EHU - and also being able to let grey waste drain away, saves a lot of hassle. Allan has provided a first-class, chemical toilet disposal point with hand, washing facilities, I wish every site could do this. The fact that each pitch has a hardstanding and a grassed area, and they are very big, means that you can choose to position your van and/awning, however, you wish, and as has been advised previously, the landscaping of the site means that there is very little road noise. We really like the fact that Allan challenges Electric separately, as that is much fairer, given that his guests can have widely varying needs. Recommendations for local activities/facilities Jurassic bites at Seaton Hole Cove. Great little café on the side of the cliff overlooking the sea, between Seaton and Beer. Amazing bacon baps. Pecorama, Beer. Brilliant for kids and grown up railway enthusiasts Largigi on Lyme Regis Esplanade. Absolutely fabulous Thai restaurant, sensibly priced and excellent service. It’s a café during the day. Chris's cafe at Axemouth Harbour, delightful outside eatery alongside the estuary. Fab sausage sandwich. There are no pubs within easy, walking distance, the two in Axemouth village seem to be very nice, and in great settings, although we didn’t actually try them. Allan came and had a long chat with us on our last evening and told us more about the site and his reasons for keeping it so immaculate. He is, without doubt, an ideal site owner as he really cares about his guests' experience and absolutely wants you to have a first class day. Can’t recommend this site highly enough, it is exceptional and we will definitely be back. Thank you Allan.

Nice Little Gem

Emmetts Farm
We have just returned from a four night stay at Emmett’s Farm. This is a rural site with lovely views of the cliffs and sea at Seaton. The pitches are large and spacious and each pitch has a water tap, which is a bonus and electric meter, so you can check your usage. We had a friendly welcome from Allan the owner. There is a bus service which stops outside the site, if you flag it down between Seaton and Lyme Regis. We used the bus to go into Seaton which worked well. There is a nice walk to some fishing lakes on a public footpath, and a dog walk. The recycling facilities are excellent as is the chemical disposal point. We would stay here again.
