Lee Bay

Lee Bay

 

Just two miles from Warcombe camping park, down Warcombe Lane, the village of Lee Bay, with a captivating sand and shingle beach. The bay is framed to either side by an imposing craggy coastline. Set in a wooded valley, Lee is a photogenic village, sometimes referred to as 'Fuchsia Valley', with most residents gardens having the shrubs in full bloom from summer through to autumn. Lee Bay really does deserve it's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status.

There are some amazing walks in and out of Lee, coastal and heavily wooded in places

Bathers should be aware there are no lifeguards and the area is known for its strong currents. Yet at low tide, even in the height of the summer it remains a peaceful spot with its many rock pools and small sandy beach and the aroma of seaweed.

 


Wonderful!

We have just returned from a week long stay in our tent at this wonderful campsite. We stayed here for the first time last year and enjoyed so much about the site and the area that we decided to return again this year.

There is a good variety of pitches here so there is something to suit everyone, although if you haven't been before we found the staff to be very helpful on the phone on choosing a pitch.

The showers and toilet facilities are very spacious and are kept very clean and tidy and the majority of guests help them to stay that way. The only small disappointment was that there were no electric sockets for hair appliances in the shower block (although there are travel size hair-dryers 20p).

The bin areas are regularly emptied so we didn't encounter any problems with wasps etc. The small but well stocked shop sells fresh baked goods every day (which were very tempting) as well as other groceries.

The campsite is in a great location for some lovely walks and is less than a mile away from the traffic free Tarka cycling trail as well as the huge sandy beach at Woolacombe.

There are some visiting food sellers on different nights too which we made use of. Having waited over an hour and a half for our order the pizzas were OK, however the fish and chips were really good.

Overall the site is very clean and well kept, very friendly, helpful staff who clearly all work very hard and we would definitely stay here again if we were in the area. Keep up the great work!
