Afternoon winter sunshine on Woolacombe beach

 

Beautiful sunshine and surf at Woolacombe on a January day. The nearest beach for Surfing to Warcombe should you be looking for a Surfing holiday in North Devon.

Woolacombe had been a top surfing spot since the 1960s and there are surfing competitions and events throughout the year. Beach huts, children's activities and lifeguards are all there through the summer season.

 


As camp sites go - very good
Spent 3 days and nights at the site - which is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately it rained heavy on and off for the 3 days) 18 hrs constant in one duration, which spoilt our holiday somewhat. However when the sun shone the views from the site were superb. Will look more closely at the weather prior to booking next time but will return.

We'll stay here again

Stayed here for the bank holiday week and were greeted by friendly staff on arrival. The campsite was full when we arrived (it emptied out through the week) but at no point did we feel crowded.

Part of the site has been terraced and we had a lovely large pitch with its own water tap and a view of the fishing lake.

We've been camping for a long time and can genuinely say that the facilities (shower blocks and washing up areas) are above average and kept clean, but they can get very busy as the site is quite big.

The shop is small but has all the essentials and in the morning there are fresh cakes available. There is also a takeaway van that serves breakfasts, afternoon tea and a variety of meals in the evening, although we didn't try this out so can't comment on the quality.

There is a barrier which you get an access code for and as a result it feels safe and secure, especially as there are always staff around the site.

The site is in a good location for exploring the North Devon area and within easy reach of both Woolacombe and Ilfracombe.

In our opinion it's an ideal place to stay if you don't like the big corporate sites.

PS watch out for the toads!
