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.

Peace and Quite

We have just returned from 12 nights total peace and quite, come 9:30 you could be on the moon! Beautiful stars at night due to the lack of light pollution and wonderful owl sounds deep at night. Travelling to Putts Corner is easy with wide access roads, just follow the Club's guidance and you can't go wrong, try the alternative sat nav route and you'll hit trouble. The site is quite small if you have a large van but nevertheless manageable, it has a mixture of hard standing, serviced and grass pitches. As usual the facilities are spic and span and the wardens are helpful and very unobtrusive. We did not use the WiFi, although, the signal popped up quite regularly. We simply did not need it as we had a strong 4G signal all the time. There are some super seaside towns within easy reach and two well known supermarkets, one in Ottery and one in Honiton, just a couple of miles each way. Look out for the M&S food store at the local garage too. Just a couple of minute walk away is the Hare and Hounds Pub where we had several enjoyable evening meals, the place is always busy so its best to book, but that in itself tells a story. As we live in Yorkshire its unlikely we will visit again but we would not hesitate to recommend it to others. In fact its the only site we have ever visited during our many many years in the club that was so empty during peak season - we do not know what is PUTTing people off PUTTS Corner, it's certainly worth a visit.

Excellent stay

Stayed here for 10 nights. Two children, two dogs, two holidaying parents......excellent stay. Weather lovely. Staff lovely (Not sure why the negative reviews) yes it is on the airpath, but it's not all night. Most people check the local surroundings and would notice an AIRPORT! IF NOT TOUGH. NO REASON TO DOWNGRADE THE SITE.....Staff helpful, relaxed atmosphere. Very clean. Didn't use wifi, didn't care about TV reception. Dog walk was good. Hare and Hounds close by and was reasonable. Good area for day trips and beach visits.

No WiFi, no walking, noisy, smelly

It's a club site so the facilities are to the usual standard, if lacking the little touches that you find at some sites. The WiFi is atrocious. ..... and it was supposed to be working ..... well below the description of "bronze standard" in the handbook. TV reception was little better (80 channels but not the main BBC and commercial ones - lots of shopping and adults). The dog walk, although very nice, is right next to the road (along which people seem to drive like nutters) and is unfenced, so despite the advice, the dogs didn't get off the lead here. Walking from the site seemed to require lengthy stretches on local roads (see previous comment about driving habits)........so really wasn't an option. At times there was quite a bit of road noise and at other times (including during the small hours) there was a fair bit of air traffic at low altitude ...... I'm guessing the site is situated on the approach to Exeter airrport. The top end of the site and the walk to the pub seemed to enjoy the benefit of the aroma from the pub's sewage treatment system.

A lovely site

We stayed here for 4 nights in June. Our first time in Devon. A lovely site, not too big and beautifully cared for by the friendly wardens. There are lots of trees on site but most pitches seemed open and sunny. A band of trees runs down one side of the site separating it from the road. A pleasant footpath through these trees provides the dog walk and leads to the near bye pub, the Hare and Hounds. The road isn't busy but there is no fence separating it from the dog walk so best keep your dogs on a lead. The pub is dog friendly (our dog was offered a sausage), there is a large garden area and the food was fine. We followed a couple of walking routes obtained from reception and enjoyed them both. The circular walk via Ottery St Mary was good walking, although a little challenging in one or two places. The shorter walk to Gittisham, a beautiful hamlet of thatched properties, was an easy walk but uphill on the way back. Of the towns we visited we particularly liked Beer, Sidmouth, and Seaton. There is a Parkrun at Seaton on a fast, flat course taking in some of the beach. We loved our time here and were sorry to leave.
