About Our Campsite


We would like to welcome you to Branscombe Campsite and Airfield.

 

We strive to make your stay enjoyable and if there is anything we can do to assist in this please do not hesitate to ask. Whilst we have now taken this as a full-time career, Tracey still works part-time at The Donkey Sanctuary (5 mins away) and has been there for almost 30 years, Joined by Lauren who also is a carer in the community in Branscombe, we have a dedicated team working at the campsite.

A bit about us…
We are a family-owned business run by ourselves, helped out by our daughter, so in no way are we a commercial site and we take pride in the fact, that because of this, we like to feel that we give the personal friendly touch, because at the end of the day the campsite and airfield are an extension of our garden and home.

As a family we spent many a holiday first camping with a tent and later progressing to caravans, so we like to think we understand your requirements.

The land that was to become the campsite and airfield was once farmed by Tracey’s father. Chris for most of his life has lived in the area, so between us we have excellent local knowledge which we’d like to share.

Since 2016 we have made several improvements but with time we will get there with the help of our customers.

We look forward to meeting you

Chris, Tracey and Lauren
