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.

 


Lovely Campsite

This was our first camping experience as a family and I am so glad I chose this camp site to stay at, we were given a secluded patch to put our tent on (as requested) it was a great size and surrounded by trees (although this wasn't great in the evening if you want the sun, but that was a lesson learnt, to ask for a spot that gets sun in the evenings.)

It is so well looked after with very friendly staff, we stayed during the week and it was lovely and quiet but obviously got busier on the Friday night.

The Site, toilets and showers were very clean and had great family rooms.

The only problem I had was the showers, not being able to set the temperature yourself and having to either push a button or wave you hand in front of the sensor every few seconds, that was annoying and with little ones you need to be able to set the temperature of the shower.

Another toilet block at the top of the site would be good too, for those that are further away so you don't have to walk so far at night.

Its lovely and close just a 2 min drive down to the town and beach, wonderful beach close by, with the best fish and chips we have ever had at Fryers, and great ice cream and fudge plus sandwiches at Fudgies.

Over all a lovely place that I will be recommending to friends and family and look forward to using again soon!

Best campsite ever

I've been camping more or less every year since I was about 7 and this has to be the best campsite I've been to and I feel that the website doesn't do it justice.

It's clean and tidy, the pitches are really big. We stayed on a electric pitch which had hedges around the back and the sides which gave us privacy which was nice, you can rent picnic benches out for £2. 50 a night which is a great idea.

The toilets and showers are brilliant, always clean. The family wet rooms have under floor heating and the shower itself is great, better than some hotels we've been in so definitely not expected from a campsite.

The staff are very friendly and the on site shop is very well priced and has all the basics you would need. It's only a 5 minute drive to Woolacombe if there's anything else you need. We loved the 'pop-up restaurant' from 'Stoned Pizza' who made fresh stoned baked pizza's on the campsite on a Sunday and Thursday, they were to die for and very well priced. On a Tuesday they had a seafood van delivering fresh seafood in foil bags ready to pop on the barbecue which was another great idea.

You can also order bread to be collected at 9am for breakfast, this included croissants, bread rolls, scones etc, again very well priced. The top of the hill where the shop is has lovely sea views along with a kids play area (This closes at dusk so there's no noise when you want peace and quiet)

Wi-Fi is available for a fee, we paid £12 for 7 days, usually Wi-Fi on campsites is awful and you never get your moneys worth - not here! Signal is great and we didn't have any problems.

We will definitely be back here again, thanks for an amazing stay.
