Private pitches separated by shrubbery

Private pitches separated by shrubbery

 

Many of our pitches are enclosed on three sides by Devon hedgerows and our own tree boundaries, offering both privacy and a break from the sea winds.

Many Devon hedges are important for wildlife, and while we keep them closely maintained, we tend not to cut them back when birds are nesting or other wildlife are making full use of them

Traditional hedges in Devon are different to those in other parts of the country. Devon hedges consist of an earth wall, faced with either turf or stone, on top of which hedge shrubs usually grow.

Important for wildlife for a number of reasons, they provide suitable habitat and cover for many plants, birds, insects and small mammals, they provide a rich food resource and they provide corridors between isolated habitats.

 


A week in Warcombe

We have just had the pleasure of staying at this campsite for the last week, ideally situated for the North Devon surf beaches but without the crowding of Woolacombe or Croyde. The site is slightly more expensive than we are used to paying but it is well worth it for a pre allocated, flat, well drained pitch, a very clean toilet and shower block with ample amounts of properly hot water (something not always found on sites).

There is a small-but well stocked shop which offers lovely pastries in the morning and the breakfast baguettes in the food shack were very welcome. This is very much a family site but is still quiet enough after dark, there is a decent play park and a very nice walk through the camps own forest reserve down to Lee Bay for rock pooling. Overall highly recommended.

We visited last August for a long weekend and had the most fantastic time. The campsite is amazing with first class shower facilities and a great secure field for dog walking. We loved the area and the campsite and have booked to come back in June (along with lots of friends!). Can't wait - thank you!
