Sunny Side Caravan and Camping: Pitches on site

General

  • Small family- and pet friendly park close to the Jurassic Coast
  • A 10-minute drive from Lyme Regis and Axminster
  • Play area, heated amenities and barbecue/campfire area

Have a quick flick through the reviews for Sunny Side Caravan and Camping and you’ll likely note the word ‘friendly’ cropping up time and again… always a good start, eh? And indeed owners Tony and Emma offer a cheery welcome to all guests at their Devon site: couples, families, kids, dogs and essentially anyone that fancies a peaceful rural break within striking distance of Lyme Regis and Axminster (both 10 minutes’ drive away).

A lot of effort has gone into making sure this place has things sorted for such breaks: for starters you may like to note the heated toilet and shower block, and the fact that the play area has picnic tables next to it where weary parents can settle with a cuppa (or perhaps something a touch stronger) while keeping a beady eye on energetic tiddlers.

Emma and Tony are firm believers that campfires are an essential part of the outdoorsy experience, and so they’ve installed a sociable campfire area where experts can share tips and novices can try out their skills at a safe distance from the main action.

Also vital for such stays are plenty of hours spent out in the fresh air, and they’re easily achieved from this spot – walkers (and dogs in need of walkies) can hit footpaths just outside the site or drive south for 10 minutes or so for the coast path. That coast is, of course, the Jurassic Coast, a prime spot for fossil hunts, beach days, watersports, seafood dinners and all sorts of activities… just as well you’ve got a peaceful place for slumbers after that little lot.

Please note

The site does not accept breeds/crossbreeds listed in the Dangerous Dogs Act (i.e. Pit Bull Terrier, Japanese Tosa, Dogo Argentino, and Fila Brasileiro).

Tents are not accepted at this park.

Bookings must not be for more than 28 consecutive nights.

Under 18s must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.

Coronavirus update: site capacity has been halved to allow for easy social distancing. All pitches are now 40 ft x 40ft, with a 10ft grass area between pitches.

Additional safety measures have also been put in place to protect guests.

    Everything, Tony and Emma really know how to treat people. A lot of other camp sites could learn. Park was very clean, shower and toilet block cleaned every day, hot showers any time of the day, all the little details where all there. We cant wait until June, best site in Devon.

    Disliked: 

    Local bars and restraunts are not worth going to, cook your own and stay safe.

Local attractions

First stop: Jurassic Coast (presumably). Start off in Lyme Regis (10 minutes’ drive) for an aquarium, mackerel fishing trips and fossil walks, then head over to Charmouth (10 minutes) to try out your new fossil-hunting skills to see if you can unearth your own prehistoric prize.

Other top spots along the coast include the towering cliffs of West Bay (20 minutes), the sandy beach and family-friendly attractions of Weymouth (45 minutes) and the ancient sea arch at Durdle Door (an hour). Like to take in as many sea views as you can? Off to the South West Coast Path you go to see how many of its 630 miles you can get under your boots.

Grownups fond of a brew or two may like to stop off at Lyme Bay Winery (15 minutes) or take a tour of Palmers Brewery (20 minutes), stopping off for the obligatory photo by the sign on the way into the village of Beer (20 minutes).

Non-tippling outings might include Axe Valley Wildlife Park (10 minutes) or Haynes International Motor Museum (40 minutes).
