Mother duck and family

Mother duck and family

 

The fishing lake is another magnet for birds. During Spring and during warm summer evenings, House Martins and Swallows skim the water to catch insects to feed their young. They nest in the local barns. They fly frighteningly close at times but always seem to miss your head!

We asked to feed the ducks one day and was told we could call them and they would come over. I never knew ducks come when called but they do here! (The fishing price for a day on their lake is very reasonable so be sure to check it out if you're into that)

It's got a lovely fishing lake with lovely ducks that are really friendly we love going feeding them every day.

Our pitch had a great view across the small lake, which had lots of ducks to entertain the children. Fishing is available too which was great, as you could hire the rod and basic kit from the on-site store.

Our pitch was beautiful at the side of the lake, we loved watching the ducks and the sunset of an evening.

 


Brilliant campsite

We have just returned from a week at Warcombe Farm and we couldn't fault it at all. Everywhere was so clean and tidy, the showers and toilets were 100% spotless. The staff were very friendly and helpful, especially one guy call Glyn, who always offered help, even when he was very busy and his fishing tips were great.

Lovely Campsite

We usually visit this campsite at least once a year with family and friends, to stay whenever we have a trip to Woolacombe. It is such a lovely campsite! The pitches are all lovely, some are set out in their own sort of cul de sac so when you book them all together you have your own little area!

A lot of them are in their own sort of glade which offers a bit of privacy - especially if you have young kids running around that you need to keep an eye on!

There are some lovely walks you can go on directly from the campsite too which are beautiful and nice to do on a sunny afternoon.

The bathrooms/showers/toilets here are amazing! All are spotlessly clean but they have been renovated recently, so they all have underfloor heating (nice and toasty after a night in a chilly tent!). They also have individual shower cubicles with shelves in to store your clothes etc. Also there are plenty of facilities, I've never once had to queue for a shower or a toilet!

Another fabulous treat here is the shop. They sell all of your normal items, however you can also order goods from the local bakery which you can pick up in the morning. Their pastries are the best!

Their campsite also has food vendors visit, the last time we went there was a wood fired pizza oven there on the Saturday night - delicious!
