The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

 

600 feet below Lynton is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway, powered by water and which is well worth a ride.
Two rivers - the East Lyn and the Hoaroak - combine just inland from the harbour at Watersmeet and sweep down a spectacular gorge and through the village to the sea. Reminders of the disaster in 1952, when the rivers flooded and a torrent of water washed many cottages into the sea with great loss of life, can be seen in the Memorial Hall.

There are some lovely walks from Lynmouth, notably up the river gorge to Watersmeet where the National Trust have a shop and tea rooms

 


Warcombe Wardens Welcoming

We attended Warcombe over the BH weekend. What a beautiful, tranquil location especially for dogs. It was not only a delight to be welcomed by a lovely female in reception, Gloria but had the assistance of her husband Glyn to pitch us. A very helpful person, who appears to go that extra mile with recommendations of places to visit but just his general approach to not only our family but witnessing his extravert ability to socialise with others.

Definitely will be back and recommend to friends and family. 5* treatment. Thank you.

This is a great site! This was our first camping trip as a family although we camped as children. We both think that this site may have spoilt us as we will probably now compare all other sites to this one.

The Toilets and Showers were out of this world and better than some Hotels Iíve stayed in. The site is well maintained and the planting on the site gave a lot of privacy.

The Childrenís Play Area was brilliant for my 5 Year old. A lot of campers had Dogs and this looked like a great place for Dogs as they had the big field at the back for walks etc.

The Washing up facilities and Food Preparation area were great and I noticed they had loads of washing machines and tumble dryers there if you needed them. My husband took my son into the family room for a shower and said that it had a lovely bath, shower and toilet in one room which was great for smaller children. I previously used one of the disabled showers in the Ladies as it was 6. 30am and no one was around with my Son and that was very spacious. There was also another separate room for disabled by the family room.

The Ďon-lineí internet booking was really good. The only criticism is that they were still letting people pitch at nearly 11pm on the Friday night (it was May Day Bank Holiday weekend!) They say in their brochure that they wont let people pitch after 10pm. This kept us awake for a while, but didnít spoil our holiday and Iím already planning another trip there next month.

There was a very nice pub with good food which you pass to get to the camp. The Beach was only a few minutes drive away which was great for my 5 year old. Herrenvolk
