Sunset over Warcombe

 

Enjoy the beautiful sunset whilst admiring the views over our lake and the channel.

 


Lovely well run site
Despite a late arrival long after the office had closed, we were made to feel very welcome by the on-call warden who showed us down to our pitch in the dark.

We had a lovely pitch with sea views and plenty of privacy (worth paying a little extra to be off the main avenues) and only a shortish walk to the excellent immaculate facilities.
Recommended.

A decent lake to fish

We (2 adults, 3 children-15, 9 and 18 months) visited here the last week in July and even though there had been quite a lot of rain the previous weeks found the ground to be really good-enough 'give' to get pegs in without being that wet that you could pull them straight back out again.

We had had slight reservations about the site before arriving as it was more expensive than we usually pay however I think it was money well spent. As already mentioned by others staff were always noticeable, driving round on their little buggies, emptying bins, cutting grass etc.

We stayed on the left hand side of the lake along with the grandparents who were in a motorhome which was ideal for my fisherman father as all he had to do was cross over, walk through the gate and cast his rod! He is a very experienced angler and while I personally can't comment on the fishing he said more than once it was a decent lake to fish.

My oldest son and daughter enjoyed the freedom of being able to ride around safely on their bikes and play in the fenced off playground. The dog thought she was in heaven with the massive dog walking area! We also made good use of it kite-flying. Even our youngest enjoyed feeding the ducks everyday.

There is now, new this year I believe an aviary in a quiet corner of the dog field with a wild bird breeding program being set up. We visited this and while it was interesting to view I think some information signs about the birds would have been useful.

Woolacombe and Ilfracombe are your typical tourist seaside spots-very busy beaches and shops selling overpriced buckets and spades.

The village of Mortehoe was simply lovely, very picturesque with traditional old church and the B&B there does scrumptious cream teas which you can sit outside to eat while watching the world go by!

If you go by car out of the main entrance and take your first left down a hair-raisingly narrow road you come across the fab secret of Lee Bay. This has a small shingle beach with rock pools for exploring and a delightful little cottage cafe selling very reasonably priced cream teas and sandwiches etc.

All in all a lovely area and a campsite we are already thinking of returning to in October.
