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.
This was the first site we went to with our Motorhome for a shake down weekend. We had a few teething problems with our purchase and the site wardens couldn't have been more helpful.
We visited mid March and the site was quiet as you would expect. We chose this site because of the fantastic reviews and everything about this site is spot on. The shower and toilet blocks were immaculate. I could imagine staying in the summer for a week and the site being able to cope very well if full.
Try the freshly baked goodies that are on offer from reception for you to collect at 9am each morning. Pans au Chocolate, fresh scones and baguettes! And fantastic!
We will return at some point in the future. :-)
Site is a mixture of small individual pitches set into trees and open pitches
Very good kids play area at top of site however this is quite a long way if you are at the bottom of the site, as we were.
Site is very well maintained with immaculate shower blocks.
If you have a dog you would be hard pressed to beat this site. The dog walking field is 14 acres and planted with >12, 500 trees ! It is not only great for walking the dog but good for kite flying and such like.
Can recommend walking down into Lee, walk through the dog field, into the next field, cross the road, over the next stile opposite then follow the path down into the valley. Beach is great for rock pooling and scrambling around.
Large fishing lake in middle of site if you into that sort of thing
My only criticism of the site would be that the toilet blocks are both some way away if you are at the bottom of the site, not good if you really have to go !
Quite expensive for what it is, however we would still go back again, so would the dog !
