WELCOME TO MANOR FARM CARAVAN SITE
Celebrating 60 years of Camp Service!1959-2019
Hi all you lovely and loyal campers.
I know that there were a few people here onsite over this past weekend & everyone was being sensible and staying well apart but I’m well aware of the local rumblings from people worried about caravan sites staying open over the Easter period. I felt like we could have helped take a little of the strain away from places around Bristol etc & help the local businesses by buying their takeaways, but we now need to follow the Government’s advice & stay in our homes.
It really doesn’t help seeing recent news reports of packed beaches along the coast and people seemingly ignoring important advice to keep social distance.
I’m sure with the onset of Easter, Boris will be making an announcement to shut all holiday areas soon, probably this week. We should remember however, that it’s a long season & if, like everyone else, we have to shut down over the coming months to save lives... and then hopefully be able to enjoy the rest of the season.... it’s a small price to pay.
Our advice now is to follow the Government’s instruction and stay in your primary home until we’re rid of this dreadful virus, stay safe, keep in touch by phone & social media... & please don’t panic buy, there’s plenty to go round as long as we’re sensible.
We’ll keep the site tidy here, keep all the farm animals fed & safe, and most importantly keep in touch with you all on our social media pages . Please look up Tina’s new ‘Manor Farm Pets Corner’ Facebook page for news and photos of any babies born over the coming months.
With any luck this horrendous situation might draw to a close by June/July, but for that to happen this has to be taken very seriously right now.
Please remember we’re here and get in touch for any more information or with any concerns you may have.
Lots of love to you all...
Tim, Tina, Annabelle, Jake & all the staff.
Our site is on a quiet, family-run farm located within an area of outstanding natural beauty, one mile from Seaton beach and the town centre. With spectacular views of the Axe Valley and Lyme Bay. We are in an ideal location for visiting the countryside, beautiful villages and seaside towns of East Devon, and the Jurassic coastline. We are only a mile from Beer, where there is a steady supply of fresh seafood and breakfast on the beach in the summer; 7 miles from Lyme Regis, with lovely sandy beaches, great places to eat and loads of events throughout the season; Sidmouth has some lovely shops to browse in and the Donkey Sanctuary nearby; or you can find your way down the winding country lanes to Branscombe, only about 3 miles from us, and relax at the Sea Shanty which has locally supplied food and a beautiful beach - a perfect place to spend warm, sunny days!
On site we have 13 terraced electric pitches for caravans and motor homes, all hard standing with grass for awning areas. There are over 200 seasonal pitches, all with electric, large deckings and water nearby. We have two toilet blocks, with showers, chemical disposal points and laundry rooms. There is also a disabled toilet located at the block nearest the touring pitches.
The on-site shop stocks a large range of daily groceries, everything for a BBQ, lots of caravan & camping accessories, newspapers and our own free range eggs from the farm. In the summer months we also have a steady supply of our own farm pork.
The enclosed children’s playground, which can be viewed from around the site, has equipment for all ages, including swings, slides, seesaws, roundabouts climbing frames and a large fort and pirate boat. There is also a large field for dog exercising and some lovely scenic walks around the site with panoramic views across the valley.
Our farm has a small flock of sheep with lambs to bottle-feed, goats to walk, pigs to feed, geese, ducks, free-range hens , donkeys & ponies to groom. There`s also any aivery, chipmonks and a raccoon to make friends with! Children and their parents are very welcome to come into our Pets Corner and experience life on a working farm.
We think we've got the perfect place for you and your family to spend your summer holidays...
