Woolacombe beach in May

Woolacombe beach in May

 

Much has been spoken about Woolacombe beach for and sometimes high expectations can lead to disappointment. But not on with this instance. A walk down from the campsite, through Mortehoe and then along this wonderful beach, at any time of the year - it is both stunning and beautiful. You can see why Woolacombe Beach was voted the Best Beach in the UK and fourth in Best Beach in Europe by Tripadvisor visitors.

It is such a vast open space at low tide and it is lovely to be able to walk the dog along the whole beach out of season.

 


best campsite I have ever stayed at

We have just spent may half term week at Warcombe farm. It is a lovely site - beautifully well kept, friendly and welcoming, spacious, quiet and in a great location.

The pictures on their website seriously undersell how nice the site is - we were on a pitch right at the bottom of the site with a panoramic view of the sea that I had no idea about before we arrived!

There are pitches for everyone - choose a sea view or a hidden private pitch in a grassy glade or a grass pitch with loads of room for the kids to run around or one of the numerous very high standard hard standings, or a pitch around the lake.

The toilet blocks are excellent - clean and modern, lots of showers, lovely hot water and underfloor heating. The family shower rooms are so nice that after a rather cold wet day on the beach I can honestly say I have never enjoyed a shower so much!

Everything about Warcombe farm is well designed and makes staying there easy - the large washing up sinks with drainers on both sides and plenty of hot water, Wifi, hire a picnic bench, several washing machines and dryers etc. The 'dog walk' is actually a long, wide, beautiful sweep of mown grass with picnic benches, surrounded by newly planted native trees and with, of course, that panoramic sea view.

The fishing lake was a big hit with everyone - all the kids managed to catch several fish.
Thank you Warcombe farm for a fantastic week. We will be back.

More than Just a Campsite

I've never left a review before, but feel the team at this campsite deserve one.

Despite high winds and a large number of broken poles trying to pitch, the staff (along with some fellow campers) couldn't have done any more to help us. Nothing was too much for Glyn and he applied his previous experience to try and help strengthen the broken poles and keep the tent in one piece during our stay.

Glyn was a great representation of the Warcombe team who just wanted to ensure we enjoyed our holiday which we truly did. Amazing site with so many different ventures locally which include walking, cycling or bus allowing the car to be parked up permanently.

We enjoyed it so much that for the first time ever, we have already booked to go back next year.
