General

  • Adult only, quiet, peaceful site
  • Near the sea at Lyme Regis World Heritage Jurassic Coast
  • Near the famous River Cottage HQ

The nearest campsite to River Cottage HQ, this adult-only, couples-only, tent-only, peaceful, spacious and tidy field is set in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty overlooking a wooded valley near the coast.

The site is just two and a half miles to Lyme Regis on the Jurassic Coast on the number 31 bus stop, within walking distance of the local pub and a short bus ride/drive to Axminster train station.

It has a selection of flat areas and 'cut aways' for pitching tents in our spacious field with lots of parking either next to your tent or in the tarred car park.

Each pitch comes with its own picnic bench, access to clean showers/wet room with lots of hot water, heaters, paper bath mats, liquid soap, and soft loo roll, and the use of fridge freezers, washing-up facilities and drinking water taps, all included in the tariff.

There's no pavement between the campsite and River Cottage HQ, the bus stop and inn, so please bring a torch and reflective jacket. Although the facilities are well lit, the camping field is not.

There are no tarred paths on the field - bring sensible footwear for dewy mornings and for the shower/wet room. The campers' kitchen, shower and wet rooms are in a well-lit tarred area.

Rubbish bins and recycling box provided: please bag up your rubbish.

Please note that this is a non-commercialised site (there are no entertainment or bar facilities); the owners offers relaxed, rural and peaceful camping.

Please note

This is an adults-only site. Children under the age of 18 are not allowed on site.

Please put your mobile number on the booking form in case the site needs to contact you.

    Spacious and well-kept pitches
    Beautiful location
    Picnic benches provided
    Friendly owners
    Ok to have a fire (in a fire pit)
    Pub around the corner
    Great local bus service

    Disliked: 

    You can hear the busy A35
    Long, steep walk to Lyme Regis

From the manager...

Delighted our campers enjoyed having a fire in a fire pit with a pub nearby and local bus.

Customer Service - I offer a quick non complicated easy check in to allow campers to get on with their camping. Local information is supplied in the campers kitchen along with the fridge freezers.

I am available 24/7 at the front door or end of a mobile which is clearly displayed if required and I can be seen around the shower and kitchen facility lots of times during the day from 6am - 10pm checking the showers are clean and there is plenty of loo roll etc. (In fact I think one of these campers met me at 5.30am having an early morning check!)

I take the view that campers don't want the proprietor pacing the camp field! I keep out of the field and consider this to be the politest most considerate way to behave on my part - leaving my adult campers alone to enjoy the peace and quiet my tiny ten pitch adult only camp site delivers.

Lyme Regis is hilly: this is well known and can be seen on google maps before arrival - (the rolling hills of Devon and Dorset) but there are car parks top and bottom of the town with useful tips given on arrival as part of my customer service to park up early before 10am at peak times in order to get a space in this very popular area of the The World Heritage Jurassic Coast - England's only natural heritage site.

We are set well away from the A35 but yes it can be heard at times depending literally on which way the wind is blowing. The price we pay for being in one of the most attractive, historical places in the South West with the Jurassic cliffs on our doorstep (as per the TV show Broadchurch).

May I take this opportunity to remind campers to take their tents, boxes, sleeping bags etc home with them. I have to pay for commercial rubbish bins which are very very expensive and fill quickly at this time of year. I can only offer normal rubbish and bottle recycling on site. I regret I can't take your unwanted broken/wet camping equipment as much as I would like to assist.

  • Liked: 

    Lovely peaceful spot - loved watching the bats swoop around us in the evening and looking at the stars. Site only has ten pitches so perfect if you want to escape from the summer crowds!

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Delighted our campers saw bats - this is a great experience to record for others. Useful tips like this are welcomed.
We had a deer walk up the drive into the campers field last week as well.

Regret I don't have the opportunity to do much as regards customer service as I just check folk in at the front door so they can get on with their holiday - I'm happy to chat all day if campers require a bit more on the "customer service" front and am a font of expert inside local knowledge. For anyone wanting any local information other than what is provided on the web site I can usually be found sweeping & cleaning out the loo block on numerous occasions throughout the day - so do stop and say hello!

Being just 2.5 miles from England's only Natural World Heritage Site, here on the Jurassic Coast is a great attraction for campers and everyone loves the fact it's strictly 10 tents here maximum on a well sized field camp site - no caravans, no motor homes, no children, no pets, no groups, no loud music. Just peaceful camping.

See you again! I'm off bat watching!

Lovely sight and quiet. 08/08/2017

  • Liked: 

    The quietness of the place and that it was quite near Lyme. The owners were very helpful.

    Disliked: 

    I over heard the female owner at times making remarks out loud about how some people were leaving place unclean.

From the manager...

Thank you for your review I'm delighted you enjoyed the peace and quiet here on our small tidy site.

Yes, quite right, I was flabbergasted recently on several mornings at the state I found the shower rooms in - any comment I made it was not directed specifically at anyone as I had no idea who had left the loo in such a revolting state.

If it was overheard by someone in the loo behind a closed door or behind a corner out of my sight then it was clearly not directed or aimed at this particular camper then it is somewhat churlish for them to comment here. Far better and much kinder had they commented on how quickly I acted to remove others unnecessary mess! But, it does amplify the fact that I am on the site and on the spot to clean up other's revolting mess which sadly on one or two occasions recently has been too gross to describe!

On such a small site most campers are respectful of the fact that others may come in straight away to use the loo after them etc. A quick brush of the bowl with the brush provided is not onerous. There are mops, sponges, cloths and sprays should anyone feel it would be nice to wipe down the sink after their use as those on planes are invited to do. Sadly we do get the occasional campers who think it normal to leave their detrius in the sink, the loo and all over the floor (and worse) without a thought for anyone else using the facilities after them. And clearly not a thought for who ever has to clean it up.

We would hope that the sort of campers who choose to stay on my small friendly site would have a modicum of respect for their fellow campers.

I personally clean and check the shower room on numerous occasions throughout the day, from 6am till 10pm - usually I catch any unpleasantness & detrius quickly - which on several occasions recently have left me quite revolted and such dirty campers are not wanted on my site.

I hope this camper was reassured that I am a hands on owner who actually CARES that THEIR shower and loo facilities are kept in a clean and tidy manner for all to enjoy. What a shame that wasn't commented on. Far sooner I am on the spot and sort it out quickly during one of my numerous checks than leave it for others to have to come to me to complain about it.

I hope my warning shot was passed on! I won't hesitate to voice my concerns so all campers can behave in a civilised way when using our facilities.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to remind everyone to think of others when using the facilities.

Delighted our campers enjoyed the quiet camping and showers.

This adult and tent only site with just the 10 pitches is proving very popular amongst those who enjoy a quiet rural camping experience.

No children, no groups, no pets, no loud music. A totally non commercial rural site with just me running it.

Your kind comments are much appreciated.

    Shower and campers kitchen area were very clean . Showers run hot. Having the fridge freezers to use is a huge benefit. Host was very friendly and knew the local walking routes well. Had a great stay, shame the weather turned bad.

    Disliked: 

From the manager...

Delighted our campers enjoyed hot running shower water and the fridge freezers included in the tariff.

Clearly this camper "gets" what we are all about - rural peaceful camping tent only on an adult only restricted to 10 pitches with a restricted number of campers - for couples (or solo) camping.

We have: NO children, NO groups, NO motor homes, NO pets and nothing commercial here - just peaceful rural camping with spacious pitches for your any size tent.

Clearly these are regular campers who can cope when the weather turns. Future campers note: you can bring a big tent at no extra charge so if the weather does turn you can retreat to the comfort of a spacious tent!

    Arrive to an upbeat greeting from Joy.
    Given relevant info on facilities and local area.
    Choice of where to pitch in a large gently sloping field that drained well even in torrential rain!
    Enclosed field with trees and hedging offering spacious pitches and a wooden picnic table per pitch.
    Excellent location for visiting South East Devon and West Dorset.
    Fabulous when late afternoon sun allowed us to barbeque in peace and quiet, with use of large fridges to store food and drink.
    Good shower/toilet (1 male, 1 female) and 1 additional toilet with plenty of hot water in showers and washing up sinks (1 inside, 1 outside.)

    Disliked: 

    Nothing

From the manager...

Delighted our guests enjoyed our small adult only 10 tent camp site - with no groups, no children, no pets. Just peaceful rural camping to enjoy their BBQ and use of the fridge freezers. Future campers reading may wish to note we don't charge for any extras, you can bring any size tent with as spacious a pitch as you like, bring your gazebo & awning and even bring your pup tent for your supplies. Fridge freezers included in tariff along with the showers & picnic bench.

Thank you for your cheery review!

    This was a fantastic little find! Extremely spacious pitches providing an element of personal space. Joy was very friendly on our arrival and took time to inform us of the sites facilities and nearby places to visit including 2 nearby pubs with good beer and food. It was great that we could use our own fire pit and bbq. Most other sites we visit pretty much restrict you to hiring their own adding to cost! We found electric points to charge our gadgets. Had good 4G coverage to research getting out and about. What was really exceptional was the available fridges free of charge to store food and freezer blocks. Facilities more than adequate and clean. A lovely quiet peaceful haven to relax and unwind. Already booked our return visit.

So pleased you enjoyed your stay and are coming back again! Your kind words about our lovingly run rural camp site, traditional tent camping with a maximum of 10 tents on site for adults only are much appreciated.

See you soon - Joy

From the manager...

Thank you for your lovely lines. Again, another sensible camper with a large tent. We don't charge any extras so you can bring as large a tent as you like (except a Safari one!). Glad your gazebo enjoyed it's first outing - and again we don't charge for a gazebo - no hidden extras on our 10 tent pitch camp site - which includes the use of fridge freezers, showers and a wooden picnic bench on the field.

A good opportunity to remind campers to bring their torch so they can see their way about the field at night, and to bring flip flops for the wet room and suitable footwear for walking around the camp field - we are a rural peaceful site with no tarred paths across the field (which would ruin the point of us here!).

Hope other campers reading will get the picture of our quiet, peaceful rural campsite for adults only. No children, no pets and no groups to disturb you.

I know these visitors enjoyed the quiet environment - thank you for your friendly chats!
