Ducklings

 

Regular visitors to our campsites small lake are our family of wild Mallards. The males are unmistakable with their distinctive dark green heads, yellow bill and a kind of purple-brown on their breast. The females are mainly brown with an orange to black bill. We've been told that Mallards in the UK can be resident or one of the many migrant birds that breed in Iceland and northern Europe spend their winter here in North Devon.

If you do come across them nesting around the lake, we do ask that you leave them undisturbed.

 


We got rid of the kids for 2 week in August 12 and the wife and I wanted to spend some quality time alone together with a bit of luxury.

What a lovely clean well managed site it is, we should of booked in from 2pm but because we had a good run and got early we were allowed in at 12, when we arrived, the staff were friendly and helpful and we were shown to our pitch and advised where to set up our tent and the wind direction and away we went.

What a fantastic 10 nights we had, it rained for the first 4 days but that was OK as we went out and about to places like Bude, Bideford and around Devon. The remainder of the stay we had lovely weather and went out every day.

When we came back we paid for an afternoons fishing. There were a lot of signs about the site and there is secure entry and exit but in this day and age you need to feel secure and have relevant information. it was a fantastic holiday and we are going back in Oct half term with the kids. We cant wait. only downside its 9 weeks to wait.

Just back from a 3 night stay. Our first time at this site and we were very impressed. Friendly staff, 1st class facilities and a perfect setting, an ideal base from which to explore Woolacombe and Ilfracombe. Fantastic weather made for a pretty good Easter weekend!. Will be back again!!
