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 - 07763 470950 or text me or preferably email me on rosecoombefarm@gmail.com. If you leave a message I will call you back as soon as possible thank you.

Enjoyed our stay

Rose Coombe Farm CL is well located for visiting Lyme Regis and Seaton for the superb Seaton Wetlands. Access is about 0.5 mile down a narrow lane with some passing places but lane is quite with little traffic, just be careful not to drive past the entrance on the right which could be more obviously signed. The CL is well maintained with grass and hedges well tended, there is plenty of room for 5 vans although most pitches are gently sloping so levelling blocks are required. Water and waste facilities are good although the water tap at the chem waste point is little awkwardly sited but no real problem. We had a lot of rain during our stay and the site is not well drained so did become very soggy towards the end of our stay - motorhomes would have struggled. TV reception was good including HD channels, mobile signal poor on Three (1 blob 3G) but good on Vodafone (3 blobs 3G). Overall an excellent site that we would certainly return to if visting east Devon again.

Return visit

Our second visit and although we had a fair amount of rain the C.L was fine, yes you need your wellies , but the car and van had no problems. Alison was as helpful as normal and told us where to park in Axminster for the carnival; we also took advantage of the large crop of apples that were free and delicious.. The area has been reviewed many times and was surprisingly busy when we were there.This site is one of my favourites, quiet and sheltered with a large field to walk the dog.

PERFECT

We spent 12 nights here & had a fantastic restful, peaceful holiday. The weather was hot which helps! The CL is kept clean, short grass and in an orchard. The adjacent field was for dogs & was ideal to let our dog off lead knowing it was enclosed. We saw a deer on our first evening. There was horses & goats in a adjacent field & free range eggs for sale. The approach road is narrow for half a mile but quiet enough not to meet anyone or there are passing places.Do not follow SatNav through Lyme Regis ( not suitable for caravans). Approach down trinity Hill Road. Do not go down Lydiate Lane. Lovely Site for visiting Lyme Regis, Seaton (tesco here) Burton Bradstock and Charmouth. We went to Hugh's River Cottage food festival which was fantastic and only 10 minutes down the road. A cafe at the end of the road & good fish & chips at Lyme Regis. We visited Forde Abbey (30 mins away) which as lovely gardens and large fountain. The cafe served nice light lunches. Overall this is a very quiet site and we will hopefully return.

Excellent

We (2 Aduts 2 girls 9 & 6 and a dog) have just returned from a week here and have to say it's beautiful. Alison is a great host who really enjoys sharing her little piece of Devon with the CL visitors. The site is incredibly peaceful being set in a lovely valley with only a very minor road alongside. 1/2 mile away is public transport, Artisan bakery and a village hall type arrangement which is licensed and has a 'beer garden'. Good access to Jurassic coast and other local attractions. Peaceful beyond compare Great value for money £12 per night all in - it's a steal. Well kept and tidy. I just hope there is room later this year / early next for us as we still have so much to do and see in the locality - at this price and with these reviews it should be full all year around! words of advice? Ignore Caraman 123's review they must have gotten out of the wrong side of the bed when writing it! - sorry if this sounds rude but for £12 per night I really cannot see anything to be critical of. If you want a peaceful CL in lovely surroundings with plenty to do in the locality this is it - I just wish it was about 4 hours nearer to home but not sure Alison can do anything about that??
