Branscombe Airfield and Camping: View of the pitches

General

  • Site with its own private airstrip with restored aircraft
  • Within easy reach of Branscombe beach, Seaton and Beer
  • Safe and enclosed play area; two games rooms; plenty of space for play

Branscombe Airfield and Camping is four miles from Sidmouth, Seaton and Beer, on the edge of Branscombe village and in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty on Lyme Bay.

The site has its own private airstrip, home to a range of vintage and classic aircraft including a Stearman PT-17 and a Zlín 526. The resident pilots and restoration team are happy to show guests the current lineup when they are available; you may also see occasional flight activity.

Branscombe has plenty of wide open space with views of Devon countryside and distant sea views. There are refurbished toilets and free showers, as well as a modern utilities block, a washing-up area and a launderette with washing machine and tumble dryer.

There's also a safe and enclosed play area with plenty of space to play football and other outdoor activities, and a small indoor games room also available. Foodies can head out to two Good Pub Guide pubs within a mile and a half – one within a short 10-minute stroll.

    Stayed in the static home over the bank holiday weekend to do some fossil hunting with the kids. The campsite owners are really friendly and helpful. Lovely chilled out location not far from Lyme Regis or Charmouth. Recommended location to stay.

    Pitch was private with hedging around. Shower Facilities, toilets etc all of good standard and hot water straight away.

    Sites on a bit of a hillside so parking near tent in wet weather is going to be an issue.

Directions


From the west:
Follow the A3052 to Sidmouth. After 13.5 miles turn right at Branscombe Cross (towards Bulstone and Branscombe).

Turn left into Northern Lane and then right through the double gates into Branscombe Airfield and Caravan Site.

Local attractions

Stay at Branscombe at the beginning of August to frolic at the world-famous Sidmouth Folk Week, or mosey along to this part of Devon at any time of year to ramble and rockpool on Branscombe Mouth beach, be tempted by tasty treats in the thatched roof restaurant or take a boat out to land some mackerel and pollock for supper.

Branscombe village has the Old Forge, the Old Bakery and the Norman St. Winifred Church to see, while the regency town of Sidmouth five miles to the west has a sauna, cinema, indoor pool, restaurants and gift shops as well as beaches for splashing and sunbathing.

The fishing village of Beer is nearby: this sheltered beach is the spot for catching the sun’s rays, and if you don’t want to angle yourself from a boat to cast off, you can buy some fresh fish on the beach before getting on your mining helmet to explore the Beer Quarry Caves or climbing the hill (sans helmet) to the model railway exhibition and gardens at Pecorama. Cavers and trainspotters can also try the Kents Cavern Underground Caves and the South Devon Railway, both at Torquay.

Devon day trips include browsing for lace in the market town of Honiton, taking a tram from Seaton along the River Axe for birdwatching at the estuary, fossil-hunting at Lyme Regis, history hunting at Exeter Cathedral and wandering the National Trust walks over Exmoor and Dartmoor.

For the small fliers, Crealy Adventure Park, Paignton Zoo and Plymouth’s National Marine Aquarium should have them soaring.

Must see

  • Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site (3.7 miles)
  • Crealy Great Adventure Park (11.1 miles)
  • The National Trust Killerton House & Gardens (14.4 miles)

National Trust
