The best agricultural show beside the sea

The best agricultural show beside the sea

It’s traditional, it’s fun and it’s next Thursday – make it a day to remember at the only agriculture show in the South West that’s beside the sea, at West Bay. We’re by the main ring so be sure and say hello.

If you’ve never been to an agricultural show before, this is a great start. And if you think you know what to expect, prepare to be impressed. With over 400 stalls, Melplash still feels really friendly and there’s more than enough to see and do for all ages. From the flower and produce show to the fabulous food hall, you will not be disappointed.

For all your country living

Take a look at our gates, fencing, picnic tables, chairs, hen houses, pet homes, feed and of course, cake. Grandma Janet will be busy baking all week and you won’t want to miss her signature coffee and walnut sponge cake.
