Very friendly staff. WiFi was great. Clean and comforting toilets. Shop had all the stuff I needed. Helpful when coming to stay.
Niall Rudge
Lovely campsite, good clean facilities. Friendly helpful staff
Friendly staff,warm welcome. Pre booked pitch was excellent and secluded. Takeaway delivery to campsite. Shop extremely expensive £1.50 for a pint of milk! Toilet block and showers are very poor and need updating with more toilets and showers available as there are insufficient for the size of the site. We paid £20 per night which is reasonable compared to other sites.
Glynn Mitchell
lovely site, large pitches. Very accommodating with our needs with regards being close to the facilities, as we had booked a different pitch but was no problem to change pitch. Great seeing the odd plane take off, but not intrusive to the experience. Facilities ample for us, yeah I did have to cue for a shower (not long and no extra charges either unlike some sites), but hey its camping, if you want your own, book a hotel with en-suite. Shop has the basics. Surprised to find that they don't have recycling for cans and plastic as well as glass - maybe that is a devon council thing?? I'm sure we will be back for another visit. Thanks
We awoke this morning to wonerful views across a green and lush valley to a pair of horses enjoying the fresh grass in the warmth of the rising sun. A light breeze tugs gently at our tent guys while we enjoy breakfast gazing at the sea at the end of the valley. All around are the sounds of nature in all its glory with the gentle awakenings of a few other folk. On our arrival we were greeted by kind, generous and smiling hosts who gave us a tour, showed to our pitch and left us set up and settle in. As if one could ask for more, we were greeted by a recently restored vintage aircraft sitting on the apron of the airfield, shining poised as if ready for action in the sunshine. The is a lovely campsite run by good honest hard working people who run this site with passion and pride. Facilities are clean, well maintained and adiquate for most people's needs. Theirs a play area and games room for the nippers if you have them, a fenced off dog walking area and walks taking you deep into the East Devon countryside. The sea is close by at Branscombe and theirs a plethora of interesting places to visit. We have visited many camp site all over the country in our forty odd years on this earth; this is among the top 5 and one of the friendliest.

Stayed this weekend very friendly owners and good views. The take off and landing of a WW 1 aircraft was a real bonus. What a really good weekend

We (family with two teenage girls) have just returned from a lovely three night stay at this campsite in a tent, a non electric pitch. It was relaxing, peaceful, clean and friendly and just what we look for in a campsite. We drove down to Branscombe village from where we did some lovely walks around the village and a longer walk to Beer. Morning and evening, the staff were friendly and helpful, the toilets and showers were clean and water warm; sometimes a 5 minute wait (max) for a shower but hey, ho, we're on holiday, not in a rush and lovely countryside to admire while waiting. There was plenty of room for cricket, badminton and frisbee. And the picnic benches were a real bonus!

31/5/17 to 2/5/17 Had a great time kids loved it, always made very welcome and can't do enough to help you.

We have stayed at the air field many times,There is always a warm welcome from Tracey & Chris. Nothing is too much trouble. The showers and toilets are always clean & tidy,the pitches are a good size and the area is beautiful. That extra bonus is of course the airfield with planes taking off & landing makes it very interesting. Good food and beer at the fountain head and the masons arms. We love it at this site and can't praise it highly enough.
Andy & Sue
Simply the loveliest most peaceful camp site we've stayed in , with the nicest most genuine and welcoming host, will b back
Just come home from a fabulous weekend at this beautiful park. It is spotlessly clean, the owners are very accommodating, happy & helpful. Will definitely be visiting again!

Helen & Richard Cannings
We stayed here for the weekend. We rocked up chose a pitch and had a lovely quiet relaxing time. The owners Chris and Tracey are a lovely couple and will do what they can to insure your stay is as enjoyable as possible. It's a very well kept and clean site. We even watched a plane take off !! We will definitely be going back again :-)
Jon and suzy
We had a lovely stay! The location is amazing and the campsite itself is brilliant with a great view! the Facilities were really clean. This was our first family camping trip and I couldn't have asked for better. Thanks so much for a great little break!
We were able to book 1 a night stay at short notice in August. Lovely peaceful site, great sized pitches and a shop that has just about everything you could need! Hope to return soon to see more planes.

WE had the most memorable stay here August bank holiday for 5 days, the weather was amazing but the site was spectacular, spotlessly clean and so friendly and helpful, would highly recommend it.
We had a lovely stay here over the bankholiday weekend. The site was kept super clean and had good facilities. The staff made us feel very welcome and nothing was too much trouble. We'd happily camp here again. *****
Janine Stone
Me, my partner and our puppy stayed for 2 nights camping and had the whole field to ourselves it was lovely we all really enjoyed it very much. Enjoyed having a BBQ and a very relaxing time. Also went to the beach. it was a very relaxing time defo coming back again very soon for sure.. very happy with our stay. had a good laugh in the games room, Toilets and shower room perfect.
Nicola And Steven
Always a warm and friendly welcome at the air field camp site. We just love coming back here it's peaceful . The showers and toilets are clean and always tidy. Lots to see and do in the area we just love it. We will return a few more times this year as the pitches are a very good size and not too cosy with neighbors. It's also brilliant watching a plane land or take off. We fully recommend a lovely place to stay.
Andy & Sue
Lovely welcome from Tracey who was really friendly and helpful. All facilities were clean. Games room is a nice touch. Only stayed for two nights wished we could have stayed a bit longer to explore the area fully. Can recommend the food and beer at the Masons Arms in Branscombe, lovely walk down from the site with lots of wildlife around. Also ate at The Blue Ball on the edge of Sidmouth which had an amazing menu, 15 specials 8 of which were fish, meals were delicious and good range of beers. Thanks again Tracey, hope to see you again soon.
Sandra and John Bray
A great find, very well run and spotlessly clean site. A credit to the owners. Will differently visiting again.
Mike Westmore
It was our first visit to branscombe campsite we stayed in our tent for 1week 27/9/2015-4/10/2015. We found it to be one of the best sites we have stayed on,the site is kept immaculate ,as is the toilets and shower rooms. As we were camping I found the freezer very useful to freeze the cool packs ,in the utility room along with sinks to wash up your pots and pans .there is also the use of washing machine for a very small charge. The pitches are very spacious ,and the views are lovely,there is a very large area in which you can exercise your dog,and a play area for the children. Peaceful and a walkers paradise ,with good food served at the local pub a short walk away. We found The owners of branscombe campsite to be very considerate as they wanted to make sure everyone enjoyed there stay there nothing was to much trouble for them and they were friendly. Also found the light aircraft that occasionally took off to be of a great interest did not disturb us one little bit and we were camping in the ground next to the runway. We had a fabulous time and we will definitely be going back next year ,thank you Deb,Andy,Mark and team . ( a big thank you from all of us at the campsite )

We came for a late summer holiday and stayed 4 nights. Beautiful! Breathtaking! We had everything we needed on the site along with fabulous views and sightings of raptors and other wildlife. The owners are friendly and helpful. Can't rate this highly enough.
Mark Wilkinson
We spent most if the bank holiday weekend at the campsite, and were very happy! Shame about the almost constant rain, but not much to be done about that. Mark in the reception was VERY helpful when I raised I'd somehow made a mistake with the booking, and saved out holiday! The campsite offers fuss free camping, with basic facilities. The new toilet block is brilliant, and always clean and well maintained with the essentials! A little gem!
Site clean, quiet and well maintained. Very good facilities. Owners couldn't do enough to please. Worth a visit. Good pub short walk away. Play area a god send when pitching with small children.
Phil masters
Fantastic welcome to a great campsite with lots of open space and very few cars, so the children could safely play and ride their bikes. The children loved the games room too! Facilities were modern and spotlessly clean. Debs, Andrew and the team were friendly, great fun and couldn't do enough to help. We had a fantastic time (despite the downpours) and can't wait to return to Dubbeldam corner soon.
The Dubbeldam Family
We stayed at this wonderful little site with our ten year old grandson. It's small, but perfectly formed and loving returned to its former glory by its new owners. The facilities are spotless, the views are breath taking and if you just want to camp without knobs and whistles then this is the site for you. We thoroughly recommend and will be back!!
Elaine Everard
We have just returned from a 3 night stay in the Static caravan. she is a lovely old girl .Spotlessly clean and has everything you need . We have also camped here and the site is beautiful . shower room fantastic. We will be back hopefully before the summer ends ( or starts !)
Samantha Brown

Jean dewaine
Stayed 5 nights on site after booking for 3, lovely campsite helpful, fun people, nothing was too much trouble, Debbie offering to collect any shopping we needed most days, saying just give me a list. The small planes were interesting to watch taking off and landing and were not at all intrusive, the site was clean and tidy,with wonderful views all round, we will be returning. If you need a taxi to get back from the pub do try Karens taxis, (cards in office) once again, lovely people a helpful and very pleasant taxi service.
Martin Gold
Great site,very clean and everyone very helpful.Beautiful countryside views etc.,and not far to a lot of seaside towns.,if I had to say a downside it would be actually getting to the site,very narrow lanes and not very many passing places,but the site itself more than makes up for that,we enjoyed our 3 days
Jenny Golding
Spent a lovely 4 nights surrounded by countryside and beautiful weather. Debbie and Mark were so helpful with all aspects of our stay from the booking to anything we may need during it. Total bonus was there were a few planes taking off and landing at the site (small 2 man planes, there is a runway set away from the campers). Not alot of noise and fantastic to watch. My partner has been going to this camp site for a number of years and this is only my second stay. We will be back !
Matt Muldowney
Absolutely fabulous place, can't wait to return. Such lovely helpful people there. Nice views, clean showers. What more could you want.
Mrs Rimen
Hi Debbie, Finally got round to thanking you for an excellent stay last month. "We have stayed at this site several times but what a transformation. On arrival we received a warm welcome from the new owner Debbie and were so pleased to see the changes that have been made. The old toilet block has been refurbished and is now spotless with free showers and in addition to this there are 2 excellent wet rooms with plenty of hot water, both of which are immaculate. There is also a bespoke washing up area and all the grass had been cut. WE will definitely put this site back on our list and wish Debbie and her team every success. Thanks again and see you soon
Tony & Edwina
We have been coming here for many years, what a huge improvement. The new incumbents, Debbie and Andy have put in a lot of work, the site is so much tidier. However the big improvement has got to be the complete refurbishment of the showers, creating his and hers facilities. The big bonus is the new log cabin which comprises utility room and 2 new spacious bathrooms complete with WC, basin and shower. Well done Debbie and Andy, we had a great stay.

Very friendly owners of the camp site, who went out of their way to ensure our stay was trouble free. They even phoned us during our journey to let us know there was a hold up on the motorway! The camp site is situated in a very picturesque area and is in an ideal location to visit many of the interesting villages in Devon. Branscombe itself, being a really lovely little village, with some excellent country pubs and pretty beach, within walking distance for the more energetic camper! The facilities on the site are currently being upgraded and the new owners are so enthusiastic, that I am sure they will make a huge success of their business venture. For a peaceful, get away from it all break, Branscombe Airfield and camping is certainly somewhere I would recommend. I would love to return, later in the year, when the weather will hopefully be a bit warmer!

Disliked: I could not find anything at all to dislike about this lovely camp site!
