Why stay here ...

Putts Corner Club Site is well located amidst idyllically quiet and pretty surroundings. In the spring a truly memorable display of bluebells, followed by foxgloves can be seen to add heightened charm to your holiday. As well as the glorious bounty of flowers on display, you will be able to experience a wide variety of bird life and even the occasional deer. There is a choice of scenic walks leading from the site into Gittisham, and from Beer you can take the lovely coastal path to Branscombe. If you would prefer a tranquil riverside walk, then Ottery St Mary is sure to delight.

The town of Sidmouth can be found conveniently close to Putts Corner Club Site. A restful resort with a long pebble beach and Donkey Sanctuary, its famous International Folklore Festival in August is not to be missed. The site also puts you within easy reach of Honiton, an attractive Georgian town with many antique and speciality shops selling everything from elegant lace to pottery. For those who enjoy a spot of shopping, the local market is held on Tuesdays and Saturdays and for the thirsty a traditional pub is a mere 180 metres away. In the nearby area, the colourful seaside town of Lyme Regis situated in the heart of the Jurassic Coast, is a renowned centre for fossil hunting. The city of Exeter offers great shopping and dining options, Cathedral gardens, and also the opportunity for lovely walks and bike rides alongside the canal.

Beautiful site

My wife and I stayed for a week on this lovely site in August and we found the staff extremely helpful and pleasant to deal with. The site itself is kept in very good order, well maintained and the facilities were immaculate. The setting is beautiful and it was perfectly located for us visiting relatives in Honiton. I recommend this site highly. Thank you to all the staff of Putts Corner for making our stay very pleasant and relaxing.

Attractive site

We stayed at Putts Corner over the August bank holiday which was our first visit to this site. We obviously expected the site to be busy! This said we arrived at 14.30pm on the Friday and instantly thought what an attractive site it was. Sadly we were left with very little option in terms of the pitch and we ended up on a very uneven and hilly grass pitch under a very large tree. In light of the quality of the majority of the other pitches this was very frustrating. I honestly believe the grass pitches on this site should be priced accordingly or even better withdrawn from sale and improved to the quality of the other pitches. On the positive side the facilities and wardens were excellent as was the location. If you like a short easy walk to a good pub then you have an excellent choice. We would like to visit this site again but we would like a much better pitch but of course there is no guarantee off this due to the booking system with the caravan and motorhome club.

Disappointing

I have used this site for six years now (since buying a caravan and joining the club).usually at least twice per year. Have just returned and feel a few things really do need to be addressed. We stayed on service pitch 83, the waste drain is either level or just above the caravan waste level, simply put, the waste will not drain away sufficiently. It’s quite annoying when paying extra for these facilities and having to go outside and lift the waste pipe to drain the water away. Secondly, it is noticeable that parents are not in control of their children. For those that haven’t been to this site, it it’s quite hilly, it’s a very nice way for kids to hurtle down on bikes at ridiculous speeds (forget 5mph speed limits) without holding onto handlebars. Whilst we were there, in one instance my wife called me from the shower block because there were a few girls basically trashing the place. Throwing water around etc. To be very fair I contacted the wardens who were off duty and were there in an instant to clear things up. The next evening the same thing was going on in the men’s block. Youths throwing water all around, wiping soap all over the mirrors a throwing the contents of the bin all over the floor. I confronted those involved only to be met with the usual lip and abuse. I actually cleared the mess up, warden off duty but that was my decision. This now seems to be a continuing theme at putts during school holidays. Unfortunately this falls back to the club but, the service blocks do need to be more secure, and policed in the evening. They are a magnet for social miscreants, whilst parents have a nice time of their own. My advice, if you are looking for a quiet time in August forget putts corner. Wardens great, area fantastic, used to be our favourite site.

Grass pitches Disappointing

This is a great site with ease of access via Honiton. However don't leave it until late to arrive as when pretty full the only pitches that get left on grass you need half a tree in blocks to get level. To the point there are slices of tree trunk left in the hedges to block up the front steadies. From some of the sights the 'vans look somewhat precarious balanced almost dangerous. And as for awnings well !.. For the price one pays it's about time these pitches were levelled off.
