Wild flowers at Warcombe

Wild flowers at Warcombe

 

A beautiful display of spring flowers. North Devon can offer a wonderful floral display in spring. Woodland, meadow and hedgerow flowers galore. Many
of these beautiful plants put on a magnificent display in early spring, making the most of the warm sunshine before tree canopy has a chance to grow over.

You can see familiar woodland flowers such as bluebells, wood anemones and snowdrops with some less common plants.

 


Campsite Heaven!

We spent 8 nights here recently in our motorhome and found everything just perfect. The layout of the campsite is lovely, plenty of grass pitches, with or without electric, lots are quite private with hedges round, then there are more open hardstanding pitches with electric or fully serviced. They are all centred around a very pretty fishing lake.

Two sanitary blocks, absolutely fantastic with underfloor heating and kept spotless! They also have a small cafe/takeaway with various menus, including breakfast. The wardens are so very helpful and nothing is too much trouble, especially Glen who, because my husband is disabled, did most of our setting up, and Gloria who put us on a lovely pitch just yards away from both the facilities and lake.

Close to a pub (carvery delicious!). We will definitely be back for more, it's so relaxing and has a fantastic atmosphere!!

Excellent!!!

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.
