Foxgloves in Hedgerows

Foxgloves in Hedgerows

 

The unmistakable flowering spikes of Foxgloves are known for both a reminder of the lazy days of summer and of course their infamous poisonous nature. These high pink flowers can be seen between June and September. Foxgloves can be found all over, in woodlands, gardens, moorland, coastal cliffs and many of North Devon's country lanes.

Foxgloves have large, flat leaves that form the base of the plant, and tall, upright flower spikes. The tube-shaped, pink flowers arranged around the stem are unmistakable. Foxgloves are an excellent source of nectar and pollen for all kinds of insects including bumblebees, moths and Honey Bees.

To encourage wildlife around the campsite we have planted several native flower species in our wildflower meadow and nature trail to provide essential nectar for bees and butterflies.

 


Perfect start for a seasonal pitch!

We are new to caravanning, but loved the look and feel of Warcombe Farm before we acquired the caravan so there was really only one place we wanted to be on a seasonal pitch.

When we arrived to set up, we were delighted with our pitch but then faced the task of setting up. But, never fear, Glyn and Gloria were on hand to point us in the right direction and were both really helpful. Glyn in particular saved the day with his knowledge of awnings and general campsite etiquette.

Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you again and getting to know you both better through the remainder of the season!

Our favourite campsite!

Just home from a four night stay at Warcombe Farm. This was our third stay in the last couple of years and the site is still as fantastic as it was when we first stayed. The staff are extremely welcoming and the facilities are outstanding.

The site is perfect with plenty of space and privacy and it's extremely well kept, it's location is brilliant for exploring North Devon.

We have stayed at lots of campsites over the years but Warcombe Farm remains our top one.

Looking forward to next years trip already!
