Our kids loved this camp site and were sad to leave - pitch 27 was our home for a week, great spaces for playing games, a play ground within sight which is well used up to 9:30pm. Helpful staff - warm welcome, Glynn is your man for fishing tips.
The reception shop for basics is open til 9pm, and opens 8:30am with fresh pastries. We found a Tesco shop 15 mins away. Lovely walks from the site... suggest couples stay at other end of the site to the play ground for a more secluded experience.
Near playground be prepared for a noisier experience (kids play to 9:30pm ish), than the pitches further afield.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park: Thank you for such a positive review the kids sure do love the play area and many parents like it near so that they can relax and watch their children having a good time. We lock up the zip wire and send the kids home when it gets to 10 so that everyone near that area can enjoy the peace.
We have just come back from 2 weeks at Warcombe Farm and before we left we booked again for next year, which in itself must tell you something. We were pitched this year next to the fishing lake, which we will avoid next year as it is a magnet for fishermen of all ages and we prefer the quiet that low season provides.
We cannot comment on the play area provided for children other than to say it looked well thought out and was all of sturdy wooden construction and I know ours would have enjoyed it when they were small. For next year we have selected a more secluded pitch surrounded by trees, this is also the beauty of the site in that it caters for all tastes and requirements as there are larger more open spaces for more than one unit, although each pitch is clearly defined, to smaller individual pitches catering for one, two or more. The choice is yours.
We could not fault any of the other facilities, the toilet and shower blocks were very clean and warm, the shower cubicles had shelving units that gave you ample space to place towels, clothes, wash bag etc. A bin and a stool were also provided and I cannot rate these highly enough, there was also, a family bathroom which included a bath with shower over with free hot water. In the smaller block there are wet rooms all of a good size together with toilets that have hand basins within the cubicle. The washing up facilities were good, though I could imagine that in the height of summer it would be busy as they have 4 sinks and draining boards. Washing machines and tumble driers are also provided and the cost is average at £4 per load with tumble driers £1 for 20 mins. There was also a couple of Belfast sinks for any hand washing requirement.
On arrival, we were given a site map, though not shown to our pitch, but then we didn't get there 'til almost 5 and reception closed at 5. We were also given clear written instructions to the nearest Tesco.
All in all for service, friendliness, cleanliness and overall site we can fault Warcombe Farm and can see that we will be camping here for many years to come.
