Located close to the Devon, Dorset and Somerset borders, the Park is ideally located to explore the magnificent surrounding countryside and coastline. Apart from Lyme Regis itself with it’s bustling historic streets, numerous restaurants and famous harbour, there are many places of interest nearby.
A short drive away is the secluded Undercliffs National Nature Reserve - this area was the scene of a massive landslip on Christmas Day in 1839 when a vast area of cliff slid towards the sea forming a deep chasm which has now become a unique woodland nature reserve popular with naturalists and walkers. Further along the Dorset coast there’s Charmouth and West Bay famous for their Jurassic fossils and beaches. To the west is the beautiful River Axe valley and estuary, the quaint fishing villages of Branscombe and Beer, and the elegant regency seaside town of Sidmouth.
For families there are numerous attractions including the Seaton Tramway, Pecorama Railways (Beer), The Donkey Sanctuary (Sidmouth), Bicton Gardens (East Budleigh), Forde Abbey (Chard) and Crealy Adventure Park (Nr Exeter) to mention but a few.
For the energetic, there are a multitude of activities nearby to choose from including excellent coastal and country walks, riding, cycling, golf, tennis, fishing, diving, sailing and windsurfing. Or if you’d rather take it easy - enjoy a country pub lunch or a traditional cream tea - the possibilities are endless!
