We visited this site during the first week of June when we could not have picked better weather. The site is easy to find and although the approach road is narrow it was easy to navigate.
On arrival we were greeted warmly at reception and then escorted to our pitch. We had booked a premium pitch and this was at the bottom of the site which is more natural looking than the top part which although is still lovely is more landscaped.
The pitch was absolutely huge, you could of got two camper vans with awnings and still had plenty of space. The pitch had a small brick BBQ, 2 hook ups, water, waste drain and a picnic bench, it was a it more pricey to have this pitch but well worth it.
The toilet facilities were very good, my only complaint was that the lights were on sensors and I did get left in the dark one evening!. The site is close to Woolacombe (walkable but steep) and also close to Mortehoe which is easily walkable along the coastal path and the Chichester Arms is well worth a visit at the end.
All in all we had a great week at this campsite and would definitely return (especially for the lemon muffins you can order from the bakery)
Gump and Woo
Pitches: Mostly level, good mix of hookup and standard. Sizes were good (we have a Vango 800 DLX) and well marked. Some pitches amongst small trees and bushes but there is competition for these!
Staff: Friendly, helpful and always around doing something – cleaning, mowing etc etc.
Facilities: A small fishing lake sits in the middle of the site and was popular with anglers. Absolutely the best hot showers I have ever come across. Very, very good washing, toilet, and washing up facilities. The shop is on the small side and can quickly run out of essentials like bacon and eggs so go prepared. The café looked ok but we didn’t use it.
For Children: Good, new and well maintained play area, laid with bark, fenced and situated in the middle of the site. Walks are excellent so there is loads of space to run. This site is obviously popular with families and so there is no shortage of playmates.
Other: This is the best site that I have stayed on in the UK. It’s situated in some beautiful countryside with great access to a lot of places. Walks from the site are good – one especially takes you down through fantastic woods to a small rocky beach with nice hotel and restaurant.
We were there with our 2 boys (3&6) and we would very definitely go back. There is no pool, no club etc etc and it is all the better for it. Book early – it was full when we arrived.
On the whole this is top of my SouthWest UK camp site list at the moment.
