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.

 


Fab campsite with great amenities

After a long journey with an overnight stop off we arrived at Warcombe on a Sunday afternoon with fog and drizzle.

Very friendly reception staff gave us the details of our pitch and gate code and then told us to move down to the arrival bay and we would be taken to our pitch. Fabulous idea!! A golf cart came and met us and showed us directly to our pitch the gent gave us the information regarding our pitch and pointed out where the toilet and dishwashing facilities were.

What an excellent large pitch with water and electricity and as a bonus the girls were delighted to be very close to the play park.

The rules regarding quiet times were great and most people seemed to adhere to it which made for a very relaxing stay.

We used the on-site takeaway a couple of times for snacks and take away cream teas yummy!!

The site was well maintained and the facilities kept clean and tidy.

The surrounding area is lovely too just couldn't get over the roads around the area some over ground and very narrow single roads.

I would definitely visit Warcombe again and wouldn't hesitate to recommending it to others.

We stayed a week and moved onto another site but wished we had stayed put for out second week!!
