Seasonal Pitches

Seasonal Pitches

 

At Warcombe camping park we offer a small number of seasonal pitches where you can leave your caravan for the opening year from 15th March - 31st October. These pitches are in a secluded area and are fully serviced. For prices, availability and terms and conditions, please call us on 01271 870690. There is usually a short waiting list as they are very popular!

 


A gem of a site with the most helpful team!

I guess the problem is with a 5 star review of this wonderful site is that it will become more popular and then we won't be able to book!! That's just me being selfish. So, what about the site? Well, it's a lovely place, not overly big but generous in terms of pitch sizes for touring tents and vans. From the friendly welcome to then being guided to your pitch, everything here is just brilliant.

You have a reasonably well stocked shop for emergency essentials, plus good (and importantly) clean on-site showers and toilets in one block. The layout of the site is also very good, featuring a fishing lake in the middle.

The top end of the site features fairly open pitches, grass and hard standing, most serviced with water, waste and electricity whilst lower down on the site, you can choose a more private pitch secluded by trees and bushes. We elected to stay at the top as we wanted to be close to the play area so we could watch the kids having a good time whilst we sat out front keeping a watchful eye.

The staff always seemed happy to help, and to give them extra credit, when our car decided to break down we knew we would have to extend our stay unexpectedly by one night, the team were more than happy to sort us out and would even help to move us if they needed our pitch (as it may have been booked).

Access to the site is pretty good, the last remaining road up to the site is wide enough in most places for cars to get through, but some parts do narrow. The site is literally half a mile up this road, so no great problems there.

So are there downsides to this lovely site? Well, a few minor points.

The 5MPH speed limit was NOT observed by many irresponsible drivers and on a couple of occasions we needed to stop our 5 year old from crossing the track way when cars were coming as they seemed to pay no attention to the children playing in the park and the possibility one could run out (even though the main areas of the park are fenced, the zip wire is not). I think this could easily be rectified by adding speed humps.

Pitches at the top end of the site are much higher up and are obviously prone to the elements including the wind - be prepared to really tie down your tent or awning.

Local ciders - it would have been great to have the shop stock some local West Country ciders or ales. All that seemed to be on offer was Belgian cider and the usual European lagers!

Noise - although not a major problem, the noise does not really subside until at least 11pm, the park seems to be in use quite late (although there was a note to say this was not to be used past dusk) and I know the site wardens are out and about checking noise levels.

A swimming pool would be nice! (Note to the owners: if you are not making any money from the fishing pond there's an idea!!)

All the above points are very minor, and I cannot say enough good things about this site - Warcombe Farm is thoroughly recommended and we hope to return soon.

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
We always take on board any suggestions offered to us by our campers. Our wardens at around 10.30pm walk the site and ensure that any noise is not excessive as we are aware that people are starting to settle down for the night (but let's not forget that people are on holiday). Our staff are constantly monitoring the speed of the cars around the site and we will consider speed bumps for the future. With regard to the play area, annually we are inspected by a independent play inspection company to ensure we comply with all the necessary requirements.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.

Two weeks wasn't long enough!

We have just returned from two weeks at this incredible camp site. It is probably easy to start the review at the start of our holiday. We arrived and checked in at the reception where we were met by very friendly organised and knowledgeable staff who checked us in efficiently and speedily. We were then directed to Dave (really nice bloke) who guided us to our pitch and gave us a run down of the site.

The pitch was, as all the pitches are a great size and incredibly well kept and maintained. The toilet blocks are immaculate and have brilliant family rooms available. There are great little touches in the shower block that make life that little bit easier. Plenty of shelves for all your clothes and toiletries as well as a stool and showers set just at the right temperature.

On most nights there is different high quality food available on site ranging from stone baked pizzas to fish and chips and a sea food van. We found this food excellent and good value for money.

There is a shop on site that sells delicious fresh bread and pastries each morning and also is well stocked and has everything that you need at reasonable prices.

There are lots of nice touches throughout the site that have clearly been well thought out. These range from hand sanitizer at the chemical disposal to a herb garden that you can help yourself to.

All the staff are incredibly friendly and are all really keen to help and offer advice on the area.

The play ground and the fishing lake are excellent as is a nice stroll through the dog walking area towards Mortehoe.

We are planning to go back again next year and can not wait.

Positives: everything about the site.

Negatives: 2 weeks wasn't long enough.

Many thanks Christine and all the team for a brilliant holiday on your beautiful site.

Phil and Katy.
