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.

 


Just returned from a weeks holiday at Warcombe, absolutely brilliant !!!... Came last year for the 1st time, will definitely be returning next year !.

Very friendly and helpful staff, the camping site is fantastic. Anyone who loves camping/caravanning should try it, you will not want to go anywhere else !!.

The fishing lake is a must for the keen angler, stocked with tench, carp and roach, to name but a few. Thank you to all at Warcombe, and we will be seeing you next year !!...

We stayed at Warcombe Farm at the end of July 2013 for a week. We chose a premier pitch and was allocated 238 which is at the bottom of the site. The pitch was surrounded on three sides by an established hedgerow providing us with a lot of privacy which is quite different to those at the top end of the site. I couldn't fault the pitch, it was huge (we have a Vango Maritsa 700 with front extension and still had lots of room) and having a water tap for our personal use was great.

As all the other reviews have said the main shower block was first class. Larger than average shower cubicles and a shelving unit allowed for safe and dry storage of clothes and toiletries to prevent the need for multiple bags to contain everything! The heated floor was heated enough to ensure the tiles weren't cold.

The site is a great location and we walked to Morte Point and Lee Bay and took day trips to Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Lynmouth. There is plenty to see and do around this part of Devon, so much that we didn't fit everything in. That's fine though as we will definitely be revisiting and staying again at Warcombe Farm.

There's nothing I can fault this campsite for. It would be nice to see an undercover area to sit/eat so the food purchased from the visiting vans can be eaten at the top of the site even in the rainier days.

Would definitely recommend Warcombe Farm.
