- Friendly 16-acre site on a mixed farm two miles from Axminster
- A 15-minute drive from the coast at Lyme Regis and Seaton
- Free fishing on the 1.5-acre lake, with kit hire available
Fancy having a gander at unusual animals but don’t quite have the budget for a trip abroad somewhere exotic? Rock up instead to Rhea Farm and Fishery, a friendly Devon site with a sizeable collection of creatures including rheas, emus, ostriches, goats, sheep and a giant tortoise.
This 16-acre park, mainly made up of forest and pasture land just outside the village of Kilmington, also has a fab 1.5-acre fishing lake stocked with rudd, tench, barbel and mirror carp. Access is free for guests, plus there’s lots of little fish for kids who’d like to have a go with the rod. Kit can be hired and friendly folk are around to help you get set up if you’ve not done it before.
In line with the rural feel of this site a couple of miles from Axminster, the eco-friendly staff encourage recycling and the place creates its own hot water for showers using waste wood and bits harvested from around its forest area. Solar-powered lamps provide light for the shower and toilet facilities, and batteries can be charged on base.
When heading out, the region is a fine option for walks both country and coastal: it’s in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and around a 15-minute drive from the coast at Lyme Regis and Seaton. Foodie folk may also like to use the farm as a base for dining or courses at telly chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ.
For more modest meals, a couple of pubs and a farm shop are within walking distance.

A handful of zoo-inspired attractions are within an easy drive of this site if the critters on base have you wanting to amble with more animals. Visit Axe Valley Wildlife Park (15 minutes’ walk) for a glimpse of the meerkats, zebras and flamingos; you’ll also be within spitting distance of Little Orchard Alpacas (five minutes’ drive) from Rhea Farm and Fishery.
Kids are generally keen on the zoo at Crealy Theme Park (35 minutes) too, which has 60 attractions, rides and shows as well as countless creatures to gaze at, and a bit of fossil hunting at Charmouth beach (15 minutes) never goes amiss with young geologists in the making.
If your tiddlers strive to be spelunkers rather than scientists, perhaps a trip to Beer Quarry Caves (20 minutes) might suit? Amateur anglers, meanwhile, have sea-fishing trips from Lyme Regis (15 minutes) at their fingertips.
Travellers with no tiddlers in tow can take full advantage by touring the Lyme Bay Winery (10 minutes) or setting off for boozy lunches in the seaside town of Seaton (15 minutes).
