Rhea Farm and Fishery: Views are amazing

General

  • Friendly 16-acre site on a mixed farm two miles from Axminster
  • A 15-minute drive from the coast at Lyme Regis and Seaton
  • Free fishing on the 1.5-acre lake, with kit hire available

Fancy having a gander at unusual animals but don’t quite have the budget for a trip abroad somewhere exotic? Rock up instead to Rhea Farm and Fishery, a friendly Devon site with a sizeable collection of creatures including rheas, emus, ostriches, goats, sheep and a giant tortoise.

This 16-acre park, mainly made up of forest and pasture land just outside the village of Kilmington, also has a fab 1.5-acre fishing lake stocked with rudd, tench, barbel and mirror carp. Access is free for guests, plus there’s lots of little fish for kids who’d like to have a go with the rod. Kit can be hired and friendly folk are around to help you get set up if you’ve not done it before.

In line with the rural feel of this site a couple of miles from Axminster, the eco-friendly staff encourage recycling and the place creates its own hot water for showers using waste wood and bits harvested from around its forest area. Solar-powered lamps provide light for the shower and toilet facilities, and batteries can be charged on base.

When heading out, the region is a fine option for walks both country and coastal: it’s in the East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and around a 15-minute drive from the coast at Lyme Regis and Seaton. Foodie folk may also like to use the farm as a base for dining or courses at telly chef Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall’s River Cottage HQ.

For more modest meals, a couple of pubs and a farm shop are within walking distance.

Please note

Facilities/activities including Fishing are subject to extra charges payable on arrival.

    Beautiful setting, the owners are really friendly and went out of their way to make sure we had everything we needed, great having the animals which our 5 year old enjoyed feeding, and all the electricity is from solar and the hot water from log burner.

    Facilities were good! owners were so nice, Lisa even got us interacting with the animals helping feed them in the morning. there’s little trails to go walking on, fishing is a good option for all we went my 14 year old brother and my 7 year old son and they both enjoyed just as much as eachother. The owners are really nice and helpful it was such a calm stay! would definitely stay again.

    Disliked: 

    The normal toilets were quite a trek from where we stayed so we had to use the composite ones that were closer to us and my 7 year old son was too short to actually use the toilet.

From the manager...

Hi Thanks for you feedback it’s much appreciated
You did ask for a lake side pitch which is further away from the campsite facilities
But if you come back we are more than happy for you so stay on the main campsite
Thanks for staying with us hopefully see you again at some point 🙂

Directions


Please note: All distances on this page are calculated "as the crow flies" - please check actual distance depending on your mode of travel using the Get directions button above.

Local attractions

A handful of zoo-inspired attractions are within an easy drive of this site if the critters on base have you wanting to amble with more animals. Visit Axe Valley Wildlife Park (15 minutes’ walk) for a glimpse of the meerkats, zebras and flamingos; you’ll also be within spitting distance of Little Orchard Alpacas (five minutes’ drive) from Rhea Farm and Fishery.

Kids are generally keen on the zoo at Crealy Theme Park (35 minutes) too, which has 60 attractions, rides and shows as well as countless creatures to gaze at, and a bit of fossil hunting at Charmouth beach (15 minutes) never goes amiss with young geologists in the making.

If your tiddlers strive to be spelunkers rather than scientists, perhaps a trip to Beer Quarry Caves (20 minutes) might suit? Amateur anglers, meanwhile, have sea-fishing trips from Lyme Regis (15 minutes) at their fingertips.

Travellers with no tiddlers in tow can take full advantage by touring the Lyme Bay Winery (10 minutes) or setting off for boozy lunches in the seaside town of Seaton (15 minutes).

Must see

  • Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site (18.2 kilometers)
  • Blackdown Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (21.4 kilometers)
  • Mapperton House & Gardens (22.7 kilometers)
