What a fantastic CL site

Stayed here twice now, what a lovely site this is. Both Carole and Matin are very welcoming, it is in a perfect place to see either Devon or Dorset. With beaches only a couple of miles away, easy access and adult only suited us for a perfect weekend away. Magnificent sunsets every night, we both look forward to returning to this little Gem can’t wait. Bob & Wendy.

We had to stay longer!!!

It is not that we dislike children, but we do like to use 'Adult' only sites as we enjoy the peace and tranquility that these sites provide and Shamwari is certainly a peaceful site. Carol and Martin have the site laid out perfectly to provide everyone with privacy and are on hand to provide advice and support throughout the day. The site is neatly hidden away from the road and is secure thanks to a gated entrance.The field at the side of the site ensures that dog owners can let their dogs run free and not therefore around the caravans! I needed to complete some work on my computer and by doing so it allowed us to stay an extra few nights which was fantastic thanks to the excellent 4G signal. This allowed me to Hotspot my computer. The TV signal was also excellent which I didn't expect in such rolling countryside. Smawari is located just outside the lovely town of Axminster and being keen cyclists we cycled into town for the farmers market on the Thursday, we also cycled into the nearby village of Musbury where there is an excellent Spa shop and pubic house. We would not recommend walking to either as there is no footpath on the B Road that links the locations. The coastal towns of Seaton and Lyme Regis are only a 15 minute drive from the site. We would recommend the very quiet beach at Axmouth which appears to be the best kept secret for sunny days. All in all an excellent holiday and Rhian and i send our thanks to Martin and Carol, the perfect hosts.

The Great Escape

Carol and Martin have made this site a super place to relax and let the world pass by. Its very convenient for all the West Dorset and East Devon resorts and yet far enough out of the hustle and bustle where you can retreat away from the madding crowds.The views from every pitch are superb .the pitches themselves are big and kept immaculate.We would just like to say thanks for a few great weeks to two great cl owners ,take a bow guys.

A wonderful find

We have just come away from a 5 night stay at Shamwari, and we will definitely be back. An immaculately maintained, secure site, with well spaced large, level pitches, beautiful views over the Axe Valley, and stunning sunsets! Carole was so helpful and welcoming and we can wholeheartedly recommend this lovely CL. Thank you, Carole and Martin, from Wendy and Phil.

We’ll Be Back 😀

A well presented, clean and tidy site. The pitches are well spaced out, generous and the grass kept short. Carol and Martin, Shamwari’s Owners are most welcoming and helpful and on hand if you need them, (they know the ‘hidden’ local beauty spots visitors often miss) Close by are the Seaside Towns of Lyme Regis and Charmouth both great for fossil hunters, Seaton, Beer and Sidmouth. Further afield is Westbay, (Bridport,) Abbotsbury, Weymouth (1 hr) and the Isle of Portland. Local shops, garage and Tesco’s store are half a mile away at Axminster and another garage and large Tesco store a few miles away at Seaton. Shamwari is in a valley surrounded by scenic countryside views, whilst there we saw some fabulous sunsets. It was lovely to hear the birds singing and nesting, but do listen out for the owl. Yes! we will be back again. 👍😀

Lovely site.

A nice site . Neatly mowed grassed field with adjoining field where you can walk the dog. Spacious pitches. Fenced off area for waste disposal etc. Lovely owners who were very welcoming & lent us a folder of tourist information. However, a big drawback for us was the location next to a busy narrow road with no verge or pavement and no footpaths to avoid the road. We prefer to park up and then walk from the site and this wasn’t possible.

Response from the Club: 

Many thanks for leaving a review and we are delighted you enjoyed the site and your stay at this lovely CL. The CL owners have been in touch to advise that their road is an ‘A’ road, busy at peak times and is bordered by Devon banks and planted with hedges, which can make you feel as though it is narrow. Please be advised though the road is not single track and there is plenty of room for both lanes of traffic. Unfortunately there is no verge or pavement into town. The CL Owner has advised that many people do walk, but that they would not advise any of their  guests to do so. We would also like to advise that in the field opposite the CL Site, the CL Owners have a circular mown path around the wildflower meadow which has been created so that guests with dogs can take them on a small walk, on leads, early morning and last thing at night, without leaving the CL. Other guests are welcome to walk here too. We hope this helps clear up any confusion.

Lovely Site

Easy to find, just off main road. The site is immaculate, with everything you need. Carole and Martin are really helpfully giving a folder with local info on arrival. Views from the site are breathtaking. Only one niggle it is on a busy road so hard to walk or cycle from site. Would highly recommend a visit.

One of the nicest CLs we have stayed on.

We had a very warm welcome from Carole when we arrived at Shamwari. She provided us with a large folder of information about attractions in the immediate area, and also further afield. It is a fairly large Cl with 5 very spacious grass pitches which are well separated. The CL faces west with panoramic views over the countryside, and as a result some fabulous sunsets when we were there. There is a screened area in a corner of the CL for disposal of waste, waste water and toilet emptying, with recycling facilities and a tap with hose for cleaning . The fresh water tap is several metres away to keep it clear of the “dirty” area. There is a little road noise from the nearby A35 and the A358 from which the CL is accessed, but this was not intrusive at all, and certainly did not prevent us from hearing the bird song! There is plenty to see in the area, and Shamwari is close to Axminster, Seaton (visit the Wetlands), Sidmouth, Lyme Regis and Chard (Forde Abbey). This is an excellent place to stay and you will be assured of a very warm welcome. At just £12 per night for a pitch and 2 people this is also a real bargain. We will certainly be returning in the future.
