Lizzie having a splash at Woolacombe. Woolacombe Beach is a large sandy beach, with a few little shops and eateries. Sections of the sands are dog friendly whilst giving those without pets their own part of beach without the hassle of excited dogs.
Just returned from a very enjoyable bank holiday stay at Warcombe Farm. Great site with super facilities and helpful and friendly staff. With things to do for the kids, dog owners and the fishing lake it caters for all and everyone can just relax and do as much or as little as they want to. We will definitely be back!

We arrived on the Monday afternoon to our pitch allocated (as requested by us) directly opposite the kids play area at the top of the site.
However it was too windy and wet to get the tent up and we suffered snapped poles and ripped canvas before deciding to B&B overnight, and try again on Tuesday.
We returned 1st thing Tuesday morning and discussed our problems with the very helpful site manager.
As a result we were moved pitch (and effectively upgraded free of charge) to a spot surrounded by trees, at the bottom of the fishing lake.
(We were also directed to a pole repair man who re-strung 3 sets of poles and replaced 5 split poles for £20)
This pitch was infinitely better and we got the tent up with no further problems.
We were very impressed with the new washing block and never had a wait for any facilities, which were always clean.
A lot of the pitches suffered with waterlogging but the wardens were constantly delivering sand and straw to anyone who requested it to cover the worst mud patches.
With hindsight, the pitches near the play area were not as ideal as they first seemed as kids are allowed on there till 10pm and it is very rarely empty, even in the rain.
I think the constant noise might have been a little annoying after a while and we were more than happy to have the lake between us and it!
Overall the site faired as well as could be expected with the weather it had to deal with, and we found the shop reasonably priced with Take Away an added bonus serving things such as chilli and mousakka, rather than just burger and chips as we first expected.
Overall, we really enjoyed the site and the holiday despite the weather, and will definitely consider a re-visit once we have dried out!
