Why stay here ...

Superbly located for walking the Jurassic Coast, a World Heritage Site.

Very quiet sheltered site away from the 'hum drum' on a small holding.

The coastal towns of Lyme Regis and Seaton are within easy driving distance and Axminster (home of the carpet!) just seven miles away.

The site is Tucked away and well fenced for dogs and free range eggs are usually available. This site also offers 4G on site.

Why not take a day trip out to visit the Seaton Jurassic Centre which recently opened in March 2016.

We are in an excellent location for walking the South West Coast path through the unique environment of the Undercliffs.

Combpyne is only a few miles from the famous 'River Cottage' and 'Trill' farms, which hold many tempting events throughout the year.

The lovely coastal towns of Branscombe, Beer, Sidmouth and West Bay are within 20-25 minutes drive as is the bustling, historic town of Bridport with its antique markets.

For those who love wildlife there are opportunities to spot nightjars and fireflies as well as many other species in this rural area which includes rare heathland habitat. The night sky is a treat as there is little light pollution.

This area of East Devon and West Dorset is a real gem and well worth exploring. Please try mobile number or text me or preferably email me. If you leave a message I will call you back as soon as possible thank you.

Tucked away.

What a gem. Tucked away down a short but narrow lane. Friendly owner. Eggs. A lawned slightly sloping site. Tesco's at Seaton only about 15 minutes away. You might have to walk up the hill to get a mobile signal. TV is good according to the others on the site (I don't have one}. Do not approach through Lyme Regis but make a short loop via A358 and come from the west. The other reviewers obviously enjoyed their stay as did I.

Great place to get away from it all

Great place, views are brilliant and Alison is so friendly. Took two dogs and the field was huge, plenty of space for many dogs to play. Site very clean and tidy, electric points nicely spaced apart. We had the pitch nearest to the gate and were the last to loose the sun in the evening. Fresh eggs for sale via an honesty box and Alison gave us a tour of her free holding. Goats, chickens and horses. No negatives about the site, gate might be a bit of an issue if you have a long van or motorhome. Lane is narrow up-to the site, but directions ate great and easy to follow. Already booked another visit for end of June.

Excellent peaceful site - great area

Spent 15 nights here in July / Aug - what a wonderful peaceful site it is. Plenty of room to pitch wherever you like (subject to power connections of where to pitch. Yes the field side retains sunshine longer into the evening - so that suited us more than hedge / road side. Very little traffic on road past site. Water points, CDP and recycling / litter bins all well provided and clean The site is very convenient for Seaton, Axmouth and Beer in one direction with Lyme Regis / Charmouth / Bridport in the other. The countryside around is very pretty and there are many opportunities for walking. One particular walk we enjoyed took us from the CL into the village, over the hill to Uplyme and then along the River Lym into Lyme Regis. Bus (hourly) back to site drops you at top of lane for short walk downhill to site. Further afield Colmer Hill on the Symondsbury Estate is a super walk rewarding the visitor with great views of the surrounding area. The site owner was superb in responding to emails - recommended places to eat, and the best route to approach the site. Whatever you do DO NOT TOW THROUGH LYME REGIS - very narrow and steep hills. Access to the site from the A35 is very straight forward. The last half mile to the site is a narrow country lane but other traffic was minimal and helpful. There are several eating places near the site - a super bakery / coffee (open till 2pm) stop up the lane in Rousden is quirky (it's in an old garage with some outside tables between redundant pumps!) provides excellent breakfasts and drinks - and the Ship Inn in Axmouth (went twice) provides good food, reasonable prices and very good service. Highly recommended site with helpful owner. Do give it your support!

Sheltered valley when needed!

We were lucky that this camp site was not fully booked as we left our previous site early due to excessive winds. That gave us 8 nights on this welcoming site. We came from the opposite direction from the instructions i,e from Seaton, The best advice is to take the second right (after the Dower House Hotel) The entry road is half a mile of narrow road with few passing opportunities although when you reach the site the entrance is easy enough with a nice wide swing. The welcome was friendly and genuine, I would advise pitching on the field side instead of the road/hedge side. There is no real road noise as the lane is not heavily used, but you do retain the sun longer on the western side in an evening. The site is well maintained and nicely set out as a basic CL with electric site. The area is great for walking, I have to admit that Seaton was not our cup of tea, but Tesco's is welcome for provisions, and the drive alongside the Axe is nice. Lyme proved pleasant in the warm evenings. Overall this is a nice quiet CL, and a good hideaway.

Great place to Relax

We have now used this CL for two visits within the same month - really lovely quiet site and so quiet and relaxing. The road to the site is a bit narrow but it is worth it for the quietness!! Alison is very friendly and we will definitely be returning soon.
