Woolacombe and Putsborough Beach

Woolacombe and Putsborough Beach

 

At the end of the long flank of sand stretching south from Woolacombe is Putsborough Sands. It has clear water, great surf and a gentler away-from-it all feel. There's a beach shop and café, and nothing else apart from rock pools and spectacular sunsets

 


Good site, very reasonably priced too. The new shower block is amazing although they could do with an extractor fan as it got extremely hot and steamy.

We stayed when the weather was very bad and the site did get quite water logged and muddy where everyone drove to and from the toilets. The first half of the site is very exposed to the weather and has a great view, past the lake there are some trees and bushes to shelter you.

It's very close the to both Mortehoe and Woolacombe beach.

We will be going back again next year we had a great time despite the bad weather.

An amazing campsite, we will be back

We booked here for a 5 night stay due to the high quality reviews. Unfortunately we left early due to the poor weather but the campsite was great and we will return.

On arrival we explained that our original plans had changed, which affected the number of guests and our requirements so the staff moved us to a larger pitch to accommodate our new needs. They were efficient and friendly.

Mike, who showed us to our pitch was informative about the area, friendly and helpful. Our pitch was secluded with trees and shrubs surrounding us which was lovely.

The children enjoyed walking to the shop to buy pastries in the morning - again another nice touch. Our pitch was close to the dog walking field and, in my opinion, this is the nicest end of the site.

The middle pitches are quite open which is nice if you want to mix. Those nearest the play park are quite loud with large groups of children in the park until dark but this is what I would expect. If you want peace and quiet just ask the friendly staff for a quiet pitch when booking.

The washing facilities were the best I have seen. As we left, we noticed a herb garden outside the shop which had a notice saying you could help yourself - something we will definitely do next time. This is really a gem of a campsite. It was a shame about the weather but we will definitely return!

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
What a shame that the weather was disappointing - but despite this you enjoyed your holiday at Warcombe. The herb garden has been so popular that we are going to plant another the other side of the park. Thank you to Judith for this wonderful idea that our visitors have really enjoyed! The office staff have great recipe ideas - it's amazing how herbs can transform cookery and we love giving our customers ideas and cooking tips!
