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.

    Clean shower block , great swimming pool and lovely dog walking areas

    Disliked: 

    Our pitch wasn’t particularly grassy, very stoney which made the tent rather uncomfortable under foot without shoes. we booked a grass pitch, but from what I could see this wasn’t the case with any other pitch.

  • Liked: 

    Site was clean, quiet and perfect for our family. Excellent dog friendly site with exercise field. facilities were clean and well maintained, indoor pool was immaculate and loved the seating available around the edge for non swimmers

    Disliked: 

    Only criticism was lack of changing facilities in pool, only one shower had a door, not a huge issue as sheer block across the way so not far to go providing weather is good

    In no particular order....
    The new/well maintained/clean shower blocks
    The staff....friendly, helpful, chatty. In fact one of the reception ladies kindly gave me one of her own hair clips as they don’t sell them in the shop.
    The dogs walks.
    The fact that they pitch your caravan for you. Useful as the access to some of the pitches were a little uneven.
    The swimming pool, very clean and warm.
    The toddler soft play - great for keeping our granddaughter amused
    The views across the valley.
    The site was clearly signposted from the main road and easily accessible.

    Disliked: 

    The pitch we were on (#1) was at the end of a row with very little space to park our car.
    Because each pitch only seems big enough to accommodate a caravan and awning with no space to park a car our neighbours on pitch 2 parked their car very close to our caravan, giving a sense of being a bit enclosed and a bit cramped.
    The people occupying the one of the pitches opposite filled their pitch with a massive tent, set up a party tent on the grass area next to it and had no room left for their vehicle and trailer, which they then parked on the end of the row right in our line of vision. Not very nice to look at.

    Very friendly staff and very helpful nothing too much trouble our caravan was transported upon arrive to our pitch and after our weekend moved back to the entrance to hook back up to the car for return journey which helped being the first time we towed a caravan and not having to stress to park up was much appreciated. Wonderful facilities, new shower block with showers, washing area and laundry area and clean and tidy bin and recycling area roll over twice we were there very helpful with young children!
    Shop on site open 9-5pm small games room and the children really enjoyed the pool as not deep gr8 for young ones! There’s a viewing area overlooking the pool off the bar to watch if the kids are confident swimmers. Nice bar area all modern and decorated nice I should think in peak times could be quite crowded if entertainment on as not huge but lovely non the less. Off the bar is the restaurant and beyond that outdoor seating and play area we hadn’t used this on our visit only pool and showers as only visited for 2nights over the weekend and we visited lyme Regis during the day on the Saturday which was only 15mins away. Nice and easy to get to. Will definitely visit again

Good site, helpful staff, lovely views 04/04/2018

  • Liked: 

    A nice welcome and staff helpful, especially as the rain was horrendous and we were directed and guided onto a hard standing pitch. Showers were hot, and clean. Laundry facilities good, although £1 for one washing powder pod, and nearly £10 to wash and dry one load I thought was a bit steep!
    The pool is quite small, and the changing room is freezing and dirty.
    Nice little onsite cafe/bar the food was very good I recommend the chicken korma! And the chocolate brownie was yum!
    We were only at this site for one nite and it met our needs.

    Disliked: 

    The pool changing room was freezing and pretty dismal!

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.
