Blackdown View Information


Blackdown View is a luxuriously appointed 2 bedroom caravan sited in a private, secure small paddock. It features a comfortable lounge area with stunning views to The Blackdown Hills. A double bedroom (with ensuite loo), twin bedroom, and double sofabed in the lounge offers up to 6 people very comfortable accommodation. The family bathroom is equipped with a shower. The well appointed kitchen is ideal for self-catering. Perfect for families or friends to share. There is plenty of private outside garden space around Blackdown View, which is fenced in and safe for children to play in. Blackdown View is a short walk from The Flying Fish - a lovely country restaurant and bar which serves delicious home-cooked food and local ales and ciders. Blackdown View is the perfect location for a Staycation. There is so much to do both nearby and further afield. Fossil-hunting at Lyme Regis or Charmouth, rockpooling at Sidmouth, visiting the donkeys at The Donkey Sanctuary at Beer, riding the Seaton tramway or taking a step back in time on a steam train along the West Somerset Railway - 20 miles of heritage track through glorious Somerset countryside. There's also the incredible gorge at Cheddar, the amazing caves and family attractions at Wookey Hole, outlet shopping at Clarks Village and iconic Glastonbury with its Tor! Stunning Dunster Castle and medieval village are not to be missed. There are also glorious walks from right outside the door! Strictly by prior arrangement, it is possible for your friends/famiy to bring their own campervan, caravan or motorhome and join you whilst you are staying in Blackdown View. Overnight stays are charged at £30 per night and include access to electric hookup and fresh water. Additional accommodation is available at The Flying Fish Stables close by.

Blackdown View is owned and operated by husband and wife team Buddy and Kate, a genial pair who you are bound to meet during your stay! They live very close by and are a mine of information and are happy to recommend days out, restaurants, walking routes and more!
