Salcombe Regis Camping and Caravan Park is situated on the edge of the picturesque village of Salcombe Regis, 1½ miles east of Sidmouth and less than a mile from the sea. Beautiful views of the combe with the sea beyond can be seen from our camping field and in a pleasant 25 minute walk across fields, the spectacular Devon coastline with its unspoilt beaches, can be reached.
Covering 16 acres and surrounded by farmland, the park offers unrivalled space and tranquility - plenty of room to park next to your caravan or tent and for children to play. A high standard of cleanliness is maintained throughout the park and this is reflected by recommendations by The English Tourist Board who have awarded us both the ‘Excellent’ Grade and the Rose Award.
The pretty village of Salcombe Regis nestling at the foot of Soldier’s Hill, is dominated by the lovely Norman Church of St. Mary & St. Peter. The name ‘Salcombe’ is derived from the salt works that used to exist at the mouth of the combe and ‘Regis’ commemorates the Manor having been granted to the monastery in Exeter by King Athelstan (925—940). The manor house site is on Thorn Farm at the high north end of the village, above which stands the Salcombe Thorn. A thorn tree has been maintained here since Saxon times and originally marked the boundary between the cultivated fields of the combe and the common land beyond.
Whether in one of our leisure homes or in your own tourer or tent, you will surely appreciate the beauty of the surrounding country.
Touring caravans, motor homes and tents are accommodated on well-drained sites either overlooking the sea or with open views across the park and surrounding fields. In addition we have electric hook-up facilities and a disabled pitch.
Luxury Leisure Homes
Our ten self-contained luxury leisure homes are all fitted with full-sized gas cookers and fridges and each is equipped with a toilet, shower, hot and cold water, gas fire and colour TV. Sleeping up to six people there are no meters — prices are inclusive. Parking facilities (and your own picnic table) are available alongside.
Adjoining our family home on site, we have a well-stocked general shop with an off-licence, selling local produce as well as all your everyday camping needs and accessories. Open every day ftom April to October we take pride in the fact that we can offer everything from free-range eggs to camping gaz at very competitive prices.
We also have a well-appointed amenities block which includes a laundrette and ironing facilities, a washing-up area, hairdryers, a family/disabled bathroom and of course, free hot water to all showers and basins.
The area surrounding the park is honeycombed with foot-paths and the cliff walks nearby afford spectacular views of both Sidmouth and Weston Mouth. The lack of access for cars has helped preserve the tranquillity of this stretch of coastline, much of which is in the care of the National Trust and which forms part of the South Devon Coast Path.
Apart from the many local beauty spots that can be reached on foot or by car, the park itself can provide the perfect place for leisure activities. We have a popular play area and putting green clearly visible from the majority of pitches, and the grassy open spaces are ideal for picnics, flying a kite or simply relaxing.
Sidmouth itself has many attractions all within easy reach. The town has retained its character and charm despite keeping pace with today’s needs. Originally a small fishing village it grew rapidly at the end of the eighteenth century into an elegant seaside resort.
Just outside Sidmouth are the picturesque villages of Otterton to the west and Branscombe to the east, with craft centres, floral gardens and country parks a short drive away. The famous lace-making town of Honiton, the wide open spaces of Dartmoor and the historic cathedral city of Exeter are a little further afield, but make interesting side trips.
Out & About
Every year Sidmouth is the setting for one of Britain’s most exciting events — the International Folk Festival. For one week the town is full of colourful dancers and folk artists from all over the world, ending with a torchlit grand finale procession.
In addition, Sidmouth has its own Theatre and Cinema, and many events take place throughout the seasons to enrich the lives of locals and visitors alike.
The Park is well signposted on the Exeter—Lyme Regis road, (A3052), from both directions. Do not take your caravan into Sidmouth itself. If coming from the east on the A3052, take the first turning left after the Donkey Sanctuary. If after arriving from the west on the A3052, proceed up the hill out of Sidford. Do not take the first road sign-posted to Salcombe Regis, but take the next right at the top of the hill. Follow the road around and you will find us on the left hand side just past the Golf Range.
Our aim is that the peace and quiet of Salcombe Regis along with the beauty and variety of the surrounding area, will ensure that you have a happy and relaxing stay. We strive to make everyone’s holiday as enjoyable as possible with a friendly atmosphere and a warm welcome. We look forward to meeting you.
