Friendly Site with Views

Stayed here during start of August with two grandchildren to go Fossil Hunting at Lyme Regis. Site is what it says it is a working farm and hence there are associated odours and flies which are only to be expected. Road along the side of the site has new tar-mac and consequently used as a cut through to the A35. More traffic and faster traffic than I expected for a small country road. Lyme Regis was very disappointing lack of fossils to collect but plenty to see in the form of a grumpy old local (yokel) man walking his dog on the west beach who told us to **** off clearly did not like the tourists who subsidise his town. Give Lyme Regis a miss and head for Bridport or Charmouth much better much friendlier. Bridport has a fine museum to keep children occupied and the locals seem friendly. All that aside the site is good value, access is easy but avoid driving or towing through Lyme Regis town itself at all costs. Views across to Devon are tremendous and site is a good base for exploring the East Devon/Dorset borders. TV signal is very very good, (forgot to plug the aerial lead into the aerial on the van and still got a picture). Large supermarket at Seaton within 10 minutes of site. The site is level and we did not need any leveling blocks. We enjoyed ourselves in spite of the occasional heavy rain. It was only the fast road at the rear and the fact that Lyme Regis is not all it is cracked up to be that has decided us on marking the site as four stars and not five both of which are of course out of the control of the owner Jackie who was very friendly and helpful.

Lovely views

We stayed here for 5 nights during the 2018 hot spell and it was too hot to venture far with our dogs or to leave them in the van whilst we went out (not a complaint) and so we did plenty of sitting outside, reading and relaxing. We had one day where there were a lot of very small black insects, which caused discomfort but, again, the weather was to blame. The views across the countryside are beautiful. The entrance is quite narrow and the road is too, so be aware both on approach and when leaving. Another caravanner assisted us on our leaving - thanks. There is a small single track road down the side of the site, which can be used to walk dogs but we found a lovely forest walk about a mile back on Trinity Hill Road towards the A35. We only saw the owner once, who was then going away for a few days. Before pitching up make sure that you are within reach of one of the electric hook up points as they are quite spaced out with 2 points on each one. The toilet emptying point is hidden away near to the site entrance. No criticisms of the site - basic -but had all we look for and needed. The weather certainly helped us enjoy ourselves.

2nd visit and love it

We spent 4 nights at Curlew Farm last week and this was our second visit to this lovely site. The views are outstanding even thought the 4 days we were there were very wet and windy. We hope to make more use of this site as we love the area and its ideal for visits to Lyme Regis, Seaton, Sidmouth and the Donkey Sanctuary.

Lovely views

Friendly owner, Jackie. Basic site but quiet. Minor road runs behind the site, the odd tractor but doesn't disturb. There were cows in the field opposite when we visited, they were quite inquisitive and followed us up and down the fence to the water tap. Good position for visiting Lyme and Seaton. We stayed a week and pitched our awning no problem. The views down the hill are lovely in the evening with the sun setting. We would visit again.

Peaceful with views

Stayed here for three nights in August. Spacious pitches in a rural setting. There is a road on the other side of the hedge from the site but it was never intrusive or a problem being a quiet country road. Lovely far reaching views. Convenient for Seaton, Lyme Regis and Axminster. Recommended if you are looking for a peaceful site with excellent views. The best way to approach the site is from the Axminster direction (as described in the directions) as the turn from the other direction is tight.
