The beach huts at Woolacombe

The beach huts at Woolacombe

 

The beach huts on Woolacombe through the summer months can be rented from Parkin Estates who manage the beach, or at least the first stretch. The huts are situated at the foot of the sand dunes. They can be great for relaxing with family and friends and are a useful store for your beach towels and other beach kit.

For surfing, Woolacombe is well known, with a reputation for consistent surf. Ideal winds are from the east. Windswells and groundswells in equal measure and the ideal swell direction is from the west northwest. Good surf at all stages of the tide but the surf at Woolacombe can sometimes be crowded.

North Devon has the surf to suit everyone.

 


We have been visiting Warcombe farm for several years now. As we live in Exeter it makes for a hasty retreat, for some peace and quiet when the mood takes us.
This is a wonderful site, with very pleasant and helpful staff.
The shower blocks are to die for.
With no night life this is just perfect for us and our children, who equally enjoy coming here. One tip, Book Early!.

Great time, facilities best I have seen

We Visited this campsite in May and can only say that we will definitely be going back and soon.

The site is well kept, has a superb fishing lake and all the pitches are spacious, for all the Tenters out there the pitches for the tents are as good, being set amongst various hedges and giving a good degree of privacy and peace and quiet.

The shower and toilet block are fab with very spacious shower facilities. The block is very well kept. We can't comment on the washing up area as we did not use it due to being in a motorhome.

There is a good walk for the Dogs and this links to the public coastal foot path for Mortehoe (which has a very Good pub or two to stop in on the way home!) This path also takes routes to Bull point Light House and Lee Bay.

The beach at Woolacombe is splendid but can get busy at peak times, but its great for the kids You can also take dogs on to the beach, but you need to head for the far left hand side of the beach. There are life guards on duty, but just remember to observe the flags as there is a rip tide that can cause havoc to the unwary swimmers and amateur boarders among you.

The beach is about a ten minute drive or bike ride. The bike ride back is a tough one because its all uphill! (10 minutes down, 1 Hour Back)

Going back to the camp site we tested the takeaway and had a brilliant Tea. The menu is quite varied, its not the cheapest but the wait was well worth it as the food is good, especially when its raining and the Bar B Que is redundant!

There is a good Children's Play Area which would test the most active of little people with lots of swings. A Tyre Slide and General Climbing Frame.

There is no bar or clubhouse if you are looking for a site with the Hi D Hi Factor and entertainment, then go down the road as this wont be the place for you.

Had a great time, facilities best I have seen, will be back soon!
