Lovely, Tranquil site
This was mine and the wife's first camping trip together. I found the site on the Internet. Luckily a friend had stayed and said how Clean the site was so I decided to book. When trying to book on the Internet it didn't give the option for a tent, but rather a tourer. I can't remember how much it was stating but I thought it was reasonable for a week with electrics (they have several types of pitches with picnic benches, barbecues, storage etc. ) around £145 I think. Because of the website I decided to give them a call. The receptionist was so helpful, and advised for my tent for the week it would only be £100!!!!!! Wow. We even got to choose our own pitch (2 days before this got changed to one next door as the one we chose had been rained on and was muddy)
Anyway, after a very delayed 5 hour journey we arrived at the site at 5. 30pm on Saturday. We were last ones that day I think. We quickly checked in and was shown down to our pitch, stopping on the way to be shown WC's etc. really good and detailed so we knew exactly where we were.
The pitch itself was in a lovely little spot. All pitches had shrubs and trees around them making them very secluded, and peaceful. We quickly set up and decided to go shower and get something to eat. We used the family showers and must say we were so impressed!! Very very clean and tidy. Underfloor heating. You didn't mind walking around barefoot (which I remember when I was a kid was a no go when we went camping) I think there was sort of a mutual respect between everyone as at no time did we ever see any tissue or paper on the floor. People mopped up after themselves. It was just a generally very pleasant experience each time the toilets and shower rooms were used.
We were on plot 136, the only thing that we have said we will do different next time is to choose to a plot on the opposite end of the park as at around 5pm the sun was off the tent and it got a bit chilly very early.
We asked to feed the ducks one day and was told we could call them and they would come over. I never knew ducks come when called but they do here! (The fishing price for a day on their lake is very reasonable so be sure to check it out if you're into that)
The staff were always very polite and always said hello when they went past (even on their buggies)
All in all to was a very good stay for us, and for first time camping together (the wife had never been before) ensured that we will go again and again.
Thanks to all the staff for their hard work in maintaining this lovely place. They truly do a great job.
PS never make the mistake of thinking a coastal path is a path down to the beach. 4 hours later we returned to the tent after a nice hike. But the coastal path just outside the tent is beautiful, with picnic benches so definitely worth going there if you want a picnic.
Best caravan site ever stayed on.
We could not believe how good the amenities on this sight were. From the spotlessly clean underfloor heated shower block to ones own water tap, drainage point, barbecue and picnic table plus bike stands, and fire extinguisher. Also I could get WiFi in the caravan. There was a nice view of the fishing lake and ducks.
Wonderful site - immaculate facilities
An absolutely lovely site, lots of varied pitches from no electric up to super pitches with electric, water, waste and picnic table. The dog walk was stunning, it was huge with fab views a must even if you don't have a dog. Fishing on site and the facilities were stunning - underfloor heating and clean.
Well stocked, reasonably priced shop and friendly wardens. Don't think you could ask for more. As for the previous comment regarding rules - it's great to go to a site that actually upholds its rules, most just pay lip service to them.
Thanks for a lovely week.
Having had a fantastic holiday at Warcombe farm last year, we couldn't wait to go again. We were not disappointed. It was even better than last year despite the weather not being quite so good. Where do you start reviewing such a fantastic site and amazing people.
We unfortunately had a problem with our inflatable awning and it had somehow sprung a leak. Anyone that has read any previous reviews will have come across Glyn. I am pleased to say that I met the legend and he couldn't have been more helpful. He helped us temporarily fix our awning and made regular checked through out the weeks to make sure it was ok. He really couldn't have been any more helpful. He also taught me and the family to fish and spent time with my 2 young children patiently explaining what to do. It is little touches like this that really make this site so warm, friendly and welcoming.
I am not saying anything that hasn't been said before but the facilities are exceptionally clean and well serviced, the site is immaculately clean and tidy, the shop is well stocked and reasonably priced, the staff are engaging, helpful and are always keen to offer advise should it be needed and the pitches are of a lovely size and well maintained.
For anyone that is not sure where to go camping or caravanning next I urge you to go to Warcombe Farm park- you will not be disappointed.
Thanks again Christine and everyone else at Warcombe for making our holiday so special.
Perfect Site, Perfect Location
What an amazing little find this was. After finding this campsite on the internet and of course then taking to trip advisor to get a general feel of the reviews, we were excited to arrive.
From the moment we arrived at site check in was incredibly smooth, we was escorted to our pitch and shown the layout of the site. Its big and caters for all sorts of camping accommodation, but even though its big its also very personal and your not on top of fellow campers, almost at times hidden away in the trees.
The Dog walking area is the best we have ever seen, so for anyone who begrudges paying for their pups this camping site offers your dog a holiday in itself for them.
There is nothing I can say that is negative about this campsite, The shower blocks and Toilets are 5* underfloor heating and immaculately clean. These guys here go above and beyond the call of duty, extremely friendly and provide these amazing facilities for us campers to enjoy, nothing like staying at a site that is passionately run and well maintained.
Please remember though that they have no way of controlling what Mother Nature is going to do, which means of course they are at her mercy also, water logged pitches are of course going to be out of use and it may be the pitch you had booked, but not necessarily going to get, they are not doing this to ruin your stay, simply that said pitch may be to wet to accommodate and an alternative offered. So book with confidence and be assured you won't be disappointed.
Thank you again to all the staff because of you your site is what it is. See you again for sure.
Great family holiday
Our second visit to this wonderful site. Helpful staff, excellent facilities and superb location.
We had a lovely pitch with room to sit in the sun (when the rain stopped) and amazing views.
Plenty of walks to nearby Mortehoe and Lee Bay and a short drive to Ilfracombe, Woolacombe and Croyde.
Plenty of dog friendly beaches, cafes and pubs in the area too.
Thanks for another great stay.

Camping with friends.
First class campsite, excellent facilities, regular bus service nearby pub with a brilliant carvery. Would recommend this establishment. Good base for Ilfracombe, Woolacombe, Barnstaple and North Devon.
Another Fabulous Week at Warcombe Farm
This is our second year camping at Warcombe Farm and we loved our stay this year too! The staff are wonderful, and Glyn was there to see us safely onto our pitch again (and remembered our quirky caravan hitch!).
Camping with dogs is effortless with the lovely dog walking woods on site.
The showers and laundry facilities are excellent and the shop is well stocked. We love the pizza nights and arriving after an 8 hour drive to fish and chips cooked to order is always a treat!
Woolacombe beach is beautiful and dog friendly - within walking distance down a wooded path. We also found fantastic riding stables near Lynton.
We have recommended Warcombe Farm to friends and will return!! Thanks for another fabulous week in Woolacombe! - Glynn: 'The Girls' say Hello and we will be back!!
A super site and location
Stayed here last year, great pitch with sea view, next to the very best dog run we have experienced.
Well planned out site with private pitches separated by shrubbery making the whole site luscious and picturesque.
Had wonderful one to one art tuition from Chris, would highly recommend for any budding artist. Will definitely return.
We have just left having had a fantastic weekend! The site is stunning, with great facilities, happy, friendly and helpful staff, lovely food (although you have to be quick in the mornings). The site is clean, well maintained with lovely individual pitches.
The children were allowed to be children and the dogs, and ourselves thoroughly enjoyed the excellent wooded walking area, filled with interesting nature facts along the way. The variety of birds and nature on site is lovely to see.
We loved it so much we booked our return for next year on our way out!
Another visit to Warcombe Farm for us and they never fail to impress us with there passion for their camp site. It is run impeccably, this is a little Gem of a site and although it was almost at full capacity over this bank holiday weekend the Toilet and shower block was immaculate, the grounds are kept spotless, no rubbish anywhere and the staff are always so very pleasant and welcoming.
Fellow campers were very friendly and extremely respectful of the rules of the site. The dog walking area is Amazing our 3 pups have a holiday themselves just being here on this campsite.
Thank you once again Warcombe Farm for another fabulous visit. If you're looking for an amazing campsite book with confidence, it's safe it's clean and it's really friendly what more could you ask for.
Bank holiday stay
We have just returned from another visit to Warcombe Farm. Yet again this campsite is amazing. The facilities are faultless, always clean and well managed. The site staff couldn't be more helpful and the addition of the small cafe and fresh breakfast produce is a brilliant addition. Thank you once again. Until next time x ps the beautiful weather was an added bonus!!!
A lovely holiday caravan park
An overall fantastic experience with the exception of the over zealous Warden who was quick to chastise my wife for going ever so slightly over the 5 mph speed limit.
An excellent lake overly stocked with fish aplenty for the fishermen.
If Carlsberg did campsites...
I really don't know where to begin and I feel I may bore you with superlatives. Having stayed at some very nice places I can confirm this is my number 1. On arrival we were shown to our pitch which we had chosen when we booked. We booked 110 backing on to the lake. Although no direct sea view, it was close to the toilets and had a far view of the park, meaning that my 8 and 10 year old had a little independence to go by themselves. I would say the better sea view ones were up on the bank, but they were also a bit exposed if you get a bit of wind.
The toilets were immaculate at all times of the day. The showers were huge and you could shower easily with children. There is a shelving unit to keep thing up dry and separate and even a bin and stool.
The wash up was also spotless and also contained a washing machine area as well as a mini tourist information with leaflets and recommendations and event Information.
The site itself was also immaculate I didn't see any mess at all... Only in my tent!
The dog walking area (we went with my sister who has dogs) was so well maintained. It was like a woodland walk abundant with nature and wildlife. I'd happily go for a walk around even without dogs. The site is very strict about picking up poo so little ones need not fear of hiking around and getting poo on their shoes.
During half term they actually had children's outdoor events in a secret part of the wood. These were bookable and payable in advance. Some parents there, some without and things included fire lighting, den building, nature picture making. We didn't have time, but it will be a must for our August trip.
The site is secure using PIN numbers for barriers in and out and there is always staff around.
They have a help yourself herb garden and a take away serving different for every night apart from Thursday. Fresh croissants are available in the morning and they are huge!
My final note would be the staff. I can honestly say they are the nicest, friendliest, helpfulist people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting at a camp site. They clearly enjoy their work and take pride and joy in maintaining the campsite to the superb level that it is at. The staff are a credit to the site.
Thank you Warcombe for the wonderful half term holiday we had we will be back. I'm your new number one fan!
We had a very nice stay for the 3rd time, weather was great, site as always 100%, staff are lovely, we wasn't keen on the Captain Hook Chinese night personally tasted like a Chinese you tried to cook at home that went wrong. Only other gripe was my 10 year old was told no floating bait on the fishing lake, when we looked at the leaflet on the fishing there was no mention of this? Apart from this we are not put off the site and facilities are well above average and we love it at Warcombe Farm!!
