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.

Happy Stay

My wife and I had a lovely stay here, you need transport but there are lots of places to visit within reasonable reach, be it coastal or inland. We will certainly come again.

LOVELY SETTING

A very well managed site in a lovely wooded setting which is full of interesting wildlife. You need transport to get around to the many interesting locations in this beautiful area of the countryside. The facilities are right up to standard, and we were lucky to have 4 of the nicest, sunny March days that we can ever remember. The only negative was the arrival of new neighbours who killed off any chance of seeing any wildlife because they sat in their awning from 3.00pm until 10.30pm watching TV at a volume sufficiently loud to be audible even in our closed van! No fault of the site, just an unlucky choice of neighbours on our last day!

First visit for 20 years

We have not visited Putts Corner for many years, and were delighted to be there again, the recent improvements have made this a location not to be missed, from the very friendly greeting from the warden team on arrival, to witnessing their desire to help visitors - when their dog had gone missing in the local woodland, it was straight too it. The whole team are amazing ambassadors for the club, and the provision of sites to members, well done and thank you for that. It was obvious that a lot of work has gone on here, the new toilet block is brilliant, some of the best showers in the club, Putts is in danger of becoming a bigger favourite over Hillhead. The one way system and the tree work have greatly improved the site. The pitches were a good size and well spaced out, our pitch was level so no need of levelling ramps. On one of our two evenings here we had dinner at the Hare and Hounds, the food was excellent, the plaice was the size of a whale and the home made turkey and ham pie was certainly home made and fantastic. There was one major difficulty over the puds which one to chose, and to top t off members get a discount of £1 off main courses. I would advise booking as it was very busy on the Friday night, I guess others are aware of how good this place is. Useful bus service on the main road that provides good access to various parts of East Devon and into Exeter. The weather was not brilliant, typically the sun came out when we were departing! Will definitely be here again, but will not leave it so long. Thanks again to the warden team for a job well done.

Drive over drain

Disappointed to find no drive over motorhome waste drain installed since my previous visit last year. Why? I didn't even try to lift the manhole cover as I didn't want to hurt my back as last year. The money wasted on the idiot rebranding exercise could have paid for proper motorhome drains at every site. Same comment applies to Godrevy Park and Haycraft which I have also recently revisited. A further disincentive to touring in the UK.

Loverly place

Stayed for the weekend and again the site is brilliant. The wardens on arrival were great and very helpful. We have stayed at the site for the last few years at this time of year and it is always so nice when the leaves are changing colour. We will be back next year.
