Sunny Side Caravan and Camping: Space for an awning

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

    The welcome and introduction by Tony was great. Emma was also good at providing instructions to find them before we set off.

    The shower block and toilets were clean and safe.
    Easy walk to a bar and restaurant just along the road.

    We really enjoyed our stay here - was just a shame that the weather was poor.

    Would recommend to others.
