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.

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.

Fabulous!

We have just returned from 12 nights at Rose Coombe Farm. It is a superb CL in a lovely quiet lane with plenty of space for 5 vans. Admittedly the final approach of about half a mile is very narrow but it is well worth it when you arrive - you just have to hope you don't meet someone coming the other way! Alison was a pleasure to deal with from my first enquiry and sent me lots of useful info by email before we set off. You are very much left on your own to enjoy your stay but Alison is always happy to help in any way she can if you need her. If you have dogs this is a great site as there is a 6 acre field adjacent for dog walking and it is totally fenced so the dogs can run round safely. The surrounding area is lovely and there is plenty to see and do in both Dorset and Devon. Our favourite meal was at Largigi, a Thai Restaurant on the front at Lyme Regis, it was not cheap but the food and service were excellent. We would also recommend the Ship Inn at Axmouth for great food. We had the pleasure of meeting a lovely couple on the CL (you know who you are Mr LED lights!) and we will definitely be keeping in touch with them. We would highly recommend this CL and will definitely return if we visit the area again. Thanks Alison for a lovely holiday.
