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.

 


This was a lovely site with friendly helpful staff. Although weather wasn't kind we still had an enjoyable holiday. The showers with underfloor heating was lovely and my daughter has told everyone how much she enjoyed them. Having 2 year old twins it was also lovely having a bath to use as they don't enjoy showers. Thank you very much.

First Class Site and Service

Just returned from our first visit to this campsite and cannot fault it. Friendly staff always willing to offer advice on just about anything you care to ask.

LIKES: Coded barrier entrance and exit, clean landscaped site, quiet site after 10pm, excellent toilet/showers/washing/food prep/chemical disposal/bins etc all kept clean and tidy and serviced regularly. Even had hand sanitizer in the chemical disposal point - nice touch! Great dog walk which extends to various footpaths connecting to SW coastal path. Had a go a fishing in the beautiful lake (£9.50 for the day and no license required) and caught around 20 fish - kids loved the experience. Food vans (stone-baked pizza, fish and chips, seafood etc) arrived each night to give an alternative to cooking and reasonably priced.

DISLIKES: I am being really picky here, but the road approaching the campsite is a little narrow considering the amount of caravans, campervans using it - as well as the buses serving the nearby holiday parks. It. could be widened easily, but its only about 1 mile to the main roads and there are plenty of passing points.

We met with many fellow campers who told us they had been going here for years. Hope to go back next year but probably need to book early. Recommend this camping park for families and couples.

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thank you for such a great review Andrew - I will make sure our hard working staff see your kind words. We strive to provide an excellent holiday experience for our valued customers. You mentioned the access road to the park - as you know hundreds of caravans and large motorhomes go up and down the road to access both Warcombe and other parks - as you mention there are lots of passing places and there are rarely any problems as long as everyone takes care. In areas of outstanding Natural beauty there is huge opposition to changing our small roads and lanes - that is why Devon is so unspoilt.
It's great to hear how much you enjoyed the lake and the fishing. Many children have learned to fish here and we hope that you and your family will enjoy many more holidays here at Warcombe.
