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.

 


We stayed here Spring Bank holiday week. The site is very well presented and you are guided to your pitch on arrival. There is a large variety of pitches on this site. There is no entertainment other than a children's playground and woodland walk. This was fine for us. We stayed on the expensive premier pitches which overlooked the lake, they are very spacious if a little clinical.

Its a five minute drive to the beach at Woolacombe which is fantastic, we spent four glorious days on it. Parking is quite expensive but if you take a packed lunch its not a bad price for a day out.

Croyde bay is just down the coast a little. Ilfracombe is also close by. The nearest big town is Barnstaple which seems to have everything. If arriving Saturday Braunton is a real bottle neck and the approach road to the site is quite narrow with numerous large vehicles using it.

We would definitely stay again at this site but wouldn't pay for the superior pitch and pay for WiFi instead.

Easter Camping

Stayed at Warcombe Farm for the first time over Easter for a week. What can I say, what superb sized camping pitches, superbly clean facilities, excellent location being far enough away for privacy and quiet location, but close enough to walk to Woolacombe if you fancy a 20-30 minute walk.

Staff friendly and helpful and park facilities ample for the children to enjoy. Will definitely return as the site in our opinion ticks all the boxes for a relaxing family holiday.

What I would say, and this isn't anything to do with Warcombe Farm, if you intend to walk to Woolacombe, which is lovely and then get a taxi back, ask the driver to go the short way as we and friends paid between £5 and £10 for the same trip. Thought I'd mention this as this was a little disappointing although Warcombe Farm had nothing to do with this, it is a consideration.

In conclusion, considering we walked passed the more commercial sites, we were more than pleased and satisfied we booked Warcombe and will return more and more now we have found a excellent North Devon location. Thanks to all that made the site so clean and appealing.

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Dear Fraser P, thank you for taking the time to review our park. We welcome your kind feedback regarding our facilities and staff. With regard to the price of a taxi from Woolacombe back to site, we would always suggest that you agree a price before taking the journey. We do hope to see you again soon. You could call Ezee Cabs, based in Woolacombe, for a price before booking.
