The North Devon Surf Scene

The North Devon Surf Scene


The North Devon coastline is not only famous for spectacular scenery and views. Many of our visitors stay here to experience the wonderful surfing and body boarding available in North Devon. The surfing locally is excellent - especially at Woolacombe and Croyde Bay. Whether you are a novice or an experienced surfer there are plenty of waves to chase!


Just returned from a great stay at Warcombe Farm. this was our first ever camping trip with our little boy who is 6 and we all loved it! facilities are lovely and everyone is very friendly, lovely peaceful relaxing stay and will be back next year for longer!

The Newcombe Family


Our first point of contact with Warcombe Farm was my telephone enquiry to make a booking. It was handled efficiently and instantly gave a feeling of confidence that this was going to be a good place to stay.

On arrival at reception we where made welcome and swiftly dealt with by the ladies in reception then passed over to one of the campsite wardens who we followed in his buggy to our pitch. The pitches are well cared for with enough space to make it feel your own. My wife and I are in our mid 50s and are basic campers in a small tent so we had ample room. We hired a picnic table which was reasonably priced and made cooking and preparing food a lot easier.

The site itself is very well maintained. The toilet blocks are immaculate and roomy. We never waited for a shower.

There is a small fishing lake in the middle of the site which is well fenced and safe. It is also full of fish so catching isn't difficult making ideal for beginners looking to learn.

Well behaved dogs are allowed. We are not dog lovers but I realise that people are and not once did we see any animals running around off the leash and also we never encountered any dog mess. At the far end of the site there is a woodland walk and dog walk. Again immaculately kept and again mess free with lots of dog waste bins provided.

The small camp shop was well stocked and reasonably priced for essential needs. We didn't use the laundry or take away service but the menu looked decent and again fairly priced. There isn't much more I can say here. The staff on-site where extremely polite, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make our stay a lovely experience.

At evening the noise levels where low and the sound of children having fun or people having a BBQ and chatting and laughing created a very pleasant atmosphere with noise levels dropping after around 11pm.

I think it is fair to say if you want a rowdy camp club, swimming pool, dogs running round and lots of screaming and shouting then this isn't for you. If you want a relaxing peaceful pleasant holiday the book here. The only minor thing I would add is that it might be worth asking for a pitch near the toilet block as some are a little bit of a walk maybe up to 200m max but as I say that is a very minor thing.

Also bear in mind that although the beaches are walkable there are no pavements and it is quite steep. There are buses which the staff will give you timetables.

Thank you for a lovely holiday we will recommend and would come back.
