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.

 


Camping Heaven

We have just returned from a 5 day stay with 3 young children (10, 8 and 4) and we have had a fantastic stay at Warcombe Farm campsite. The site is idyllic and peaceful and the amenities are simply top notch!! We enjoyed the daily delivery of fresh rolls and bread in the morning, to the daily evening delights of different cuisines brought to site by local chefs.

The kids had a fantastic time onsite and the walks and surrounding area's make this a very special place to camp.

A big thanks has to go to Glynn the onsite warden for his daily catch-up and friendliness!! The misses loved the wicker basket as-well :o)

We will absolutely return again as we fell in love with the place and the surrounding area which is simply stunning!!

10/10 for the camp site and the way the onsite staff manage your stay!!

Another Great week, Thank You!

Third year running here for us. Stayed near to the play area this time, which was a little noisier as expected, but ideal for us as we didn't need to walk far to find the kids. The park (and the whizz of the zip wire) has its quiet times which are adhered to.

The site was once again immaculate throughout - probably the best toilet/shower facilities I have used anywhere - and the staff were friendly and attentive. Captain Hooks on site café was a nice add-on this year. Convenient for a lazy breakfast, but we did miss the variety of evening meal foods which were available from the various mobile food vans visiting the site each evening in 2014/15. Didn't really feel the food at Captain Hooks offered great value (£14 for 3 breakfast baps) but it was decent quality and obviously very convenient.

We did buy fresh pastries from reception in the morning which were tasty. Well done Warcombe Farm once again. Another great stay and we will be back again soon.
