Lakeside Netting

Lakeside Netting

 

Back in February 2007 the Environment Agency came on site to thin the stocks of fish held in the lake to ensure that the fish remaining would remain healthy.

The fish that were removed were then taken to re-stock other lakes around North Devon.

We continue to take periodic advice from the Environment agency, to ensure the health of our fish stocks and the lake that they happily live in.

When the lake has become overstocked the Environment Agency have netted the lake and taken the smaller fishes to stock other waterways.

 


Can't go wrong booking this campsite!

All the staff are very helpful and friendly. The campsite is clean, tidy and well organised. The shower blocks are excellent, like the underfloor heating!

We would especially like to thank Glynn for his assistance when setting up for fishing. This was our kids first time fishing and we ended up catching over 30 fish that day.

If you are thinking of coming to North Devon and want a lovely relaxing campsite, then this is the place for you.

Many thanks to all at Warcombe Farm!

Have recently returned from a 6 night stay at this site. We had pitch 164, which was a slightly tight fit for our Royal Atlanta 8 (plus side extension). That said, it was lovely secluded pitch, nice and level, and obviously well maintained.

The site staff were unbelievably helpful, showing us directly to our pitch, and offering all sorts of help to get us started. The chap even offered to plug in our EHU for us. I was confident I could manage it unaided though.

We did however manage to split a pole when putting the tent up, and found that our water container had sprung a pinhole leak when filling it for the first time this year. That was how I found out that the site shop is a little low on camping supplies. Nicely stocked with eggs and bacon etc, but you might go wanting if you need some emergency camping gear. [There is a Motorhome and Caravan store just three miles away at Mullacott]

The loos and showers were great, no complaints there (especially as we were reasonably close to them) - but I can imagine it'd be a bit of a hike if your were lower down in the field.

No noise problems, some lovely walks down to Lee and Woolacombe, and nicely located for other walks (Tarka trail etc. ) make this a really pleasant site to stay at.

The provided trails through the lower field makes this a popular camp site with dog owners - but there were no noisy dogs - and no mess. Plenty of bins for all that, so no worries for folk like me who are a little intolerant of mutts.

All in all, a great campsite that I'd have no hesitation in recommending to friends, or returning to ourselves.
