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.

Our favourite CAMC site

This is a lovely site with a good dog walk, friendly wardens and a nice pub at the top of the dog walk. Been here a few times and booked to go back.

Great site, beautifully maintained by helpful wardens & loads of local attractions

We book this site when visiting relatives as it is so convenient. The site is kept immaculate by this small team of very hard working, friendly wardens. Nothing is too much trouble for them, they even go to fetch fish & chips to order for you on a couple of days a week. As motor-homers (one with reduced mobility) we do find we need to hire a car but this is easily done, either through the Club or from a local garage. Tesco is a very short drive away for all your provisions or there is a bus stop on the near by main road. The Hare & Hounds is within walking distance even for us, they are dog friendly & serve good food. A visit to the Donkey Sanctuary with free parking & free entry is a must even if only for their superb cafe serving a wide range of food. Sidmouth is just a few miles away & is our personal favourite as we always seem to pick up bargains there. Mocha cafe on the seafront (corner of the shopping street) is very nice & also dog friendly.

Fabulous site

We’ve just had seven nights here and we loved it. The whole site has a comfortable, welcoming feel to it. I’m sure this is because the wardens who run this site are exceptional. They are so friendly and helpful and they fetch fish and chips for anyone who wants them, twice a week. The portions are very generous and they are piping hot and delicious. All the facilities here are pristine and there’s a motorhome service point. We took advantage of the excellent laundry facility. There’s a lovely dog walk from the site, which also leads to a short walk to The Hare and Hounds. They serve excellent pub grub and the carvery is first class. If you stay here, do not miss going to the Donkey Sanctuary. There’s free parking and it’s free entrance. The donkeys are adorable and the whole place is a joy to walk around. Their restaurant serves lovely coffee, cakes and wonderful breakfasts. The scenery around East Devon is beautiful. We had a great time. Thank you to the wonderful wardens.

A lovely stay

We recently spent 11 nights on this site, and really enjoyed it. The site is very spacious and pretty, surrounded by fields and woodland ( which was full of bluebells during our stay) There is some road noise during the day but it’s so quiet at night - we heard owls almost every night! The site is on a slope but many of the hard standing pitches looked pretty flat. The two toilet blocks were always spotless and we felt the wardens worked incredibly hard to keep everywhere looking nice. It’s a short walk through the woods to the Hare and Hounds, which serves food all day and is famous for its carvery. We loved exploring the area as both the coast and countryside in this area are absolutely beautiful. We especially liked Sidmouth, which is a fantastic little resort with lots of independent shops and a huge shingle beach. Do follow the instructions in the handbook when approaching the site with a caravan, as some of the hills are very steep! We’d recommend Putts Corner to anyone who wants a peaceful, relaxing base to explore the area. Thanks to the brilliant warden team!

Lovely site, peaceful but there is aircraft noise.

We love this site. It is very peaceful and picturesque. Just a short drive down to Sidbury where there is a free carpark you can catch the bus into Sidmouth, Exeter or to Honiton. A short walk up through a pretty woodland takes you to a very nice pub. There is some aircraft noise, sometimes at night. The showers could do with a bit of updating and the space seems quite small. The curtain does tend to stick to one's body. The staff are fantastic and work very hard to keep the site looking lovely. The toilet block is always spotlessly clean.
