Friendly Site with Views

Stayed here during start of August with two grandchildren to go Fossil Hunting at Lyme Regis. Site is what it says it is a working farm and hence there are associated odours and flies which are only to be expected. Road along the side of the site has new tar-mac and consequently used as a cut through to the A35. More traffic and faster traffic than I expected for a small country road. Lyme Regis was very disappointing lack of fossils to collect but plenty to see in the form of a grumpy old local (yokel) man walking his dog on the west beach who told us to **** off clearly did not like the tourists who subsidise his town. Give Lyme Regis a miss and head for Bridport or Charmouth much better much friendlier. Bridport has a fine museum to keep children occupied and the locals seem friendly. All that aside the site is good value, access is easy but avoid driving or towing through Lyme Regis town itself at all costs. Views across to Devon are tremendous and site is a good base for exploring the East Devon/Dorset borders. TV signal is very very good, (forgot to plug the aerial lead into the aerial on the van and still got a picture). Large supermarket at Seaton within 10 minutes of site. The site is level and we did not need any leveling blocks. We enjoyed ourselves in spite of the occasional heavy rain. It was only the fast road at the rear and the fact that Lyme Regis is not all it is cracked up to be that has decided us on marking the site as four stars and not five both of which are of course out of the control of the owner Jackie who was very friendly and helpful.
