Barricane Beach

Barricane Beach

 

Barricane beach offers a picturesque and secluded spot, tucked away in between the rocks. It is famous for it'd tiny cowries and other exotic sea shells, rarely found on her larger neighbour Woolacombe beach. These shells travel along the Atlantic jet stream, swept from the shore of a Caribbean island thousands of miles away across the Atlantic and then to be dropped in near-perfect condition in this tiny little inlet on the North Devon coast.

The best pickings for shell seekers can be after large storms.

Around a half a mile from the main Woolacombe beach, Barricane is ideal for rock pooling, sun bathing and taking a dip in the sea.

 


Great family holiday

Our second visit to this wonderful site. Helpful staff, excellent facilities and superb location.
We had a lovely pitch with room to sit in the sun (when the rain stopped) and amazing views.

Plenty of walks to nearby Mortehoe and Lee Bay and a short drive to Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Croyde.

Plenty of dog friendly beaches, cafes and pubs in the area too.

Thanks for another great stay.

Can't go wrong booking this campsite!

All the staff are very helpful and friendly. The campsite is clean, tidy and well organised. The shower blocks are excellent, like the underfloor heating!

We would especially like to thank Glynn for his assistance when setting up for fishing. This was our kids first time fishing and we ended up catching over 30 fish that day.

If you are thinking of coming to North Devon and want a lovely relaxing campsite, then this is the place for you.

Many thanks to all at Warcombe Farm!
