General

  • Among the Blackdown Hills seven miles from the Jurassic Coast
  • Covered pool and paddling pool
  • Bar and evening entertainment

For proximity to the sea without the higher prices of parks directly on the coast, take a look at Andrewshayes Caravan Park. Benefiting from the beauteous backdrop of the Blackdown Hills, this middling-sized sheltered site is only seven miles from the World Heritage Jurassic Coast, so the fossil beaches and seaside resorts are within easy reach.

Pull up a pew in the conservatory at the Ploughman’s Bar by the covered pool, where you can have a hot drink during the day from the machine or a drink from the bar in the evenings; there’s also a paddling pool for tadpoles. In the school hols, the bar lays on live singers and bingo at night (out of season, it’s open Fridays and Saturdays) and there’s a takeaway for those who want to put their feet up after a hard day’s relaxation.

Once the small fry have been fished out of the pool, there’s an adventure playground and games room to occupy them, plus a soft play area for anklebiters. Man’s best friend is welcome too, with good exercise areas on site.

Excellent site with great warden staff & good facilities. 10/07/2018

Reviewer's country: United Kingdom Jenny B. Confirmed

  • Electric grass pitch
  • Recommend to friends   Visit again
  • Liked: 

    Facilities - really clean all the time with good number of showers. Shower cubicles were a good size so possible to have a shower without getting clothes etc wet.
    Pitch - we were on astroturf as we had asked for a level pitch.
    Pre-visit service - I'd asked for a level pitch in my booking. Within 24 hours the site had rung me to confirm exactly what I needed & to book me on an appropriate pitch. On arrival we were met by the warden who was very polite and helpful.

    Disliked: 

    Attitude / helpfulness of staff in the bar - I asked if any of the food was gluten free as I am coeliac. The attitude was extremely unhelpful & they were unable to provide me with the allergens list as is required. I ended up with a bowl of soggy cheesy chips for my meal as the only thing I could risk eating. Not having gluten free food is one thing (I know not everywhere can provide it) but to not be able to tell me what allergens were in the foods is illegal and dangerous.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review. With regards to the cafe this facility has been franchised out. However we have spoken to the manager who remembers your visit and tells me they did explain allergen ingredients to you. They are sorry that at the time all they could offer was chips, but are looking into what other options they can stock that can be cooked safely to deal with food allergies and will advertise this in the future.

Local attractions

Close to the park, Shute Woods are a sweet spot for walks. Alternatively, guests can head to the dramatic South West Coastal Path, to forage for fossils at Charmouth beach, take in the views from the famous Cobb at Lyme Regis, which has sandy and pebbly beaches replete with rock pools, or have a stroll along Beer beach - followed by a well-earned pint, perhaps...

For family frolics, the Crealy Adventure Park has rollicking rides, there are miniature and model railways and crazy golf at Pecorama, and another track-based treat is the Seaton heritage tram, which trundles its way through two local nature reserves teeming with wading birds.

Other options include meeting the residents at Sidmouth Donkey Sanctuary (free entry); the wildlife, forest activities, play barn and maze at Escot; cream teas and glorious English country gardens at Burrow Farm; or an outing to one of the various National Trust properties nearby.
