The Shrubbery Caravan & Camping Park
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 4 July 2013

We have just spent a week at the Shrubbery and having had such a peaceful holiday, will definitely return. The site is ideally located for visits to Lyme Regis, only 10 minutes drive. Seaton, also 10 minutes away has a large Tesco Extra. I would recommend also visits to Beer, West Bay and Sidmouth - all within easy reach.
The campsite has very large pitches with water points not far away from any of them. There are three shower blocks meaning no queues in the morning. They are kept clean throughout. The main reception also houses a launderette and well equipped shop with plenty of local delicacies and treats. Fresh bread is delivered daily and can be ordered in advance. There is a garage and village store 100 yards from the main entrance with a wider choice of essentials.
Facilities for children are excellent with a large playground and crazy golf course in a large safe area of the site. There is also a good dog walking area for dog owners to exercise their dogs in an adjacent field
The owners work around the clock to make everyone's stay enjoyable. A most relaxing, quiet site and excellent value for money, especially with the 7 night deal.

We've just come home from an amazing stay at Shrubbery. A lovely, flat site with generous pitches. The toilet blocks were clean and well looked after. The shop was well stocked and the staff couldn't have been friendlier. We were one of two families whose children had the most amazing time. They experienced a freedom to explore and make new friends. The site was busy but we didn't feel crowded as the pitches were spread out with hedges as dividers. The site is quite and peaceful at night.
We used the local bus service to go to Lyme and drove to Charmouth beach (£2.50 all day parking) to find fossils. There is a lovely, local circular walk from the site which we enjoyed too.
We absolutely loved our time at Shrubbery and can't wait to go back in the future. A must book for families.
Thank you Shrubbery.

This is a perfect campsite for families looking to relax. The pitches are large and well spaced out and there is a large play area in the middle. The owners are very friendly and work really hard to keep it clean and welcoming. The campsite stayed quiet at night and so very peaceful. The location was also great being just a short drive to Lyme Regis. The only downside was the showers which, though kept really clean and conveniently located, were a bit on the cold side. My friend found some others on site which were lovely and warm but that was on our last morning so I did not try those.

My family spent the weekend here first weekend in May. Very relaxed atmosphere. We were told to choose a pitch as long as it wasn't too close to someone else. We had many spots to choose from, some with hedged areas and picnic tables. The shop at reception was well stocked with basic food items, BBQ's, etc. Our kids enjoyed the playground while we pitched the tent and we felt safe in leaving them to play. (They are 3 and 4) The shower blocks were easily accessed and always very clean. A great shower with plenty of hot water. The nights were quiet (despite one incident which was dealt with; a couple, clearly with no children, enjoying themselves far too loudly in the night, to everyone's discomfort. A very unusual occurrence for this site, I was assured.) We were located only a few miles from loads of beaches including Lyme Regis. Just before checking out, we enjoyed using the site's crazy golf course. We would most certainly visit this site again.

We have stayed at the Shrubbery a number of times, usually outside peak season.
Location: good - 3 miles from Lyme; 5 miles from Seaton; 7 miles from Beer i.e. handy for seaside); generally quiet but better at rear hedge to avoid any road noise.
Facilities: modern reception, regularly manned with a small stock of essentials. there is a small shop and fuel station just outside the site entrance; shower blocks are modern and clean - main block can be a little chilly in cold weather but top block is smaller and warmer; laundry facility; children's play area; crazy golf only 75p!
Pitches: good clean grass pitches; a dozen or so very good/roomy gravel/hard standings (not bookable); we prefer the back of the site by the hedge as no noise from the road - or the childrens' play area!; area by the road is mainly for camping; lower end of the site (all grass) reserved for adults only - good option; numerous water points so if you choose carefully you can be next to one; good dog walk area behind/along hedge at rear of site.
Staff: Margaret (owner) very pleasant and keen to please and hear suggestions to improve her site; other staff pleasant and courteous.
Other points to note: they do 7 day special prices at nil notice - unlike other sites in the area who either don't do them or want 28 days' notice.
Summary: we like it as best choice in the area. recommended - but leave us a hard standing pitch please!

Stayed here for 4 nights and although it rained quite considerably the site remained in great condition throughout.
Cannot praise the staff, services and site enough .
Everything you needed was nearby or on site and of course the nearby town of Lyme Regis just makes a beautiful area complete
We are a family of four in which our two children found plenty to do and see
Will definitely be returning with some better weather next time

Four very happy campers
