General

  • Site with its own private airstrip with restored aircraft
  • Within easy reach of Branscombe beach, Seaton and Beer
  • Safe and enclosed play area; 2 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 Tiger Moth, a Stearman and a Waco. The resident pilots and restoration team are happy to show guests the current lineup of aircraft and you'll 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 new 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 will find two Good Pub Guide pubs within a mile and a half – one within a short 10-minute stroll.

    Perfect location: plenty of space for pitches, peaceful, beautiful views and a short walk to Branscombe village centre which has good tea room. Also good for access to coastal path. Friendly welcome on site and essential items like milk for sale. Facilities were kept very clean and new family shower rooms were great.

    Disliked: 

    Nothing to dislike and although we didn’t have a problem with accessing the facilities there may be more pressure in high season. Maybe a couple of extra basins nearby so you wouldn’t need to take up the whole shower room?

  • Liked: 

    Lovely campsite with plenty of room for the kids to play. Lots of lovely beaches on the doorstep.
    The showers and toilets were kept spotless. Pitches were a lovely size.
    Small shop on site selling essentials which was very handy.

    Disliked: 

    Not really any dislikes but the campsite would benefit from a few more showers and toilets. Showers had to be queued for every morning.

    Wifi was very hit and miss.

Directions


From the west:
Follow the A3052 to Sidmouth. After 13.5 miles turn right at Branscombe Cross (towards Bulstone and Branscombe). Travel 1 mile until you come to a crossroads with a large 'Branscombe Airfield' sign on double gates. Turn left into Northern Lane and then right through the double gates into Branscombe Airfield and Caravan Site.

From the east:
Follow the A3052 from Seaton/Axminster/Lyme Regis and turn left at Branscombe Cross (towards Bulstone and Branscombe). Travel one mile until you come to a crossroads with large 'Branscombe Airfield' sign on double gates. Turn left into Northern Lane (just in front of Higherland Farm bungalow) and then right through the double gates into Branscombe Airfield and Caravan Site.

If you use your satnav it will leave you approximately half a mile short of the campsite. Please continue along the same road and you will come to the crossroads mentioned above. Turn left here and the you will find the campsite on your right.

Please note, there are a number of Branscombe signs on the A3052. Please only follow signs for 'Branscombe Bulstone' and look out for the small Branscombe campsite and airfield sign by the turning.

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 in Exeter at Exeter Cathedral and wandering the National Trust walks over Exmoor and Dartmoor.

For the small fliers, the 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)
