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.

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.

Just brilliant

We have just returned from a stay of 2 weeks at Putts Corner and can only say what a fantastic site this is in all respects. It was the third time we had stayed on this site and as before thoroughly enjoyed all that it has to offer. Great dog walk, immaculate facilities, a peaceful site, convenient for visiting so many places, all fairly close by....Honiton, Sidmouth, Beer, Seaton, Lyme Regis, Exeter, Exmouth, Otterton and so many others. Plenty to visit. And as for the Wardens, they really do go the extra mile. Sue and Mandy are fantastic people, nothing is too much trouble. The ONLY negative is the fact that, while the site used to have wifi, it does not have it now. It is supposed to have a hotspot by I could not locate it. I was rather miffed as, on arrival, I paid for another year’s wifi (how I managed to log on for that I will never know, even the Warden could not understand how I had, but I received an email confirming my payment! But then no more wifi!!!) Perhaps clearly displayed notices in Reception could advise there is no wifi, only a “hotspot” somewhere unknown. But apart from that, a great stay and many more to come, hopefully.

Peaceful attractive site

We visited this site as it was on the route home from a tour of South Devon. We extended our stay as we find it so delightful. Peaceful, no noise, very friendly and helpful wardens who were always ready to chat and give advice when asked. The pub nearby, the Hare and Hounds was very good and we took the wardens advice and booked a table as it gets very busy. All the beach resorts nearby are well worth visiting. We did find that some of the campers seem to think it OK to cut across other peoples pitches to access the toilet blocks with their chemical waste and water containers. After a while it became annoying to have them pass so close to our window. Please, if you have a dog, take it to the dog walking area, not let it use your pitch, or your neighbours' pitch, even if you clear it up, the next camper on your pitch may walk barefoot, or have children sat on the grass. Not a lot the wardens can do, its a pity that some campers just ignore the signs. This is not the only site we notice this happening, and it is 90% owners of small dogs who don't want to walk too far.

A lovely site well situated for visiting East Devon

Only our 2nd visit to this lovely site but we fully intend to return next season. There are bus stops near the site but if like us you are in a motorhome & not towing your own car then try hiring a car from the very helpful Lovells Garage in Ottery St Mary. This site is fairly compact but the vast majority of pitches are a very good size. There are 2 facilities blocks which are well maintained & kept very clean. The efficient & friendly wardens are always around if you need anything, nothing is too much trouble for them. We can't comment on the wi-fi as we carry our own dongle which always receives a good signal. We have always found TV reception to be good except in adverse weather because of the surrounding trees. Our dog misses having a secure exercise area where he can run free but there is a nice woodland walk. Nearby pub is dog friendly (in the bar), serves good food but can get very busy so best to book.
