Our Holiday Park Access Statement
Monkton Wyld Access Statement
Monkton Wyld Holiday Park is accessible by car or public transport. It is 4 miles from Axminster railway station. The station is on the main Waterloo to Exeter line. There is a no. 31 bus service from Axminster station every hour to the Hunters Lodge Pub which is one mile from the site. From the Hunters Lodge Pub bus stop to the site it is necessary to cross the busy A35 trunk road. There are no dedicated pedestrian crossing points. The walk from to the site is level and mainly on pavements. There is a 500m stretch of lane with no pavement. The site is signposted with brown tourism signs.
From the entrance there is a 80m uphill sloping tarmac road to reception with two speed humps. The area outside reception is level tarmac with adequate room for parking and turning vehicles. There are no dedicated disabled parking bays. A bench is situated immediately outside reception.
There are two steps up to the reception door, alternatively a ramp is provided. There is a 25mm high threshold to cross to enter the reception. There is adequate space in reception for a wheel chair to turn around.
At night the entrance to the holiday park is controlled by a locked barrier between 2300hrs and 0700hrs. Between these times access is via a late night parking area. The late night parking area is situated 140m north of the main entrance along Scott’s Lane. There is parking room for 4 cars. The parking area is compacted gravel. Pedestrian access to the site from the late night parking area is via a 1.2m wide path to the right side of a locked steel barrier and through a 1.2 m wide wooden gate. A further 20 m of compacted hard core leads to the main tarmac internal site roads. This area is located centrally in the site. Reception is 105m uphill from this point. All areas are lit by low level amenity lighting.
In general, the holiday park is situated on a slope, with 50% of access roads either going up or down the slope. The roads are a mixture of tarmac and compacted hardcore.
Camping areas are either grass or gravel. Some gravel hard standings have to be accessed across grass areas, some are accessible directly from the internal site roads. Our Park is general well lit, especially for the wash areas. It is advisable however to bring a torch and just in case you forget yours we do have them for sale in our on-site shop.
There are two shower blocks with 100mm high steps up to the main wash areas. Both blocks have shower rooms accessible with no step, which provide full ablution facilities and are suitable for the partially disabled.
