Where shall I start?! We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 7 and 4.
The campsite has stunning views and has to be one of the best sites we have stayed on for facilities.
The showers and toilets were always clean and never had to queue despite it being the night of the season.
We only had a takeaway once and it was Chinese night, it was fabulous. Myself and my husband had the Chinese and the children had a chicken burger. We were pleasantly surprised that the chicken burger was a plain chicken breast on a roll ( not a pre bought dodgy burger!)which was perfect for our 2.
The play area was great for the children, again one of the best we have seen on a campsite.
The staff were all incredibly friendly and always acknowledged us and stopped to speak to the children.
The only negatives which are of no reflection on the site itself are: the distance to the beach, but this can easily be overcome. The first day we attempted to walk it along sandy lane and via Woolacombe bay holiday park. It was fine going took about 40 mins would have been a lot quicker but our little boy was just having 'one of those days'. coming back we decided to try the route coming back through Twitchen holiday park. It was tough as it was an incredibly hot day and we were all tired after spending all day on the beach. We got as far as Twitchen and then stopped for an Ice cream and my husband walked the rest and went and got the car to pick us up. The following day we enquired in the site shop and they gave us details of the bus, fantastic!!! It stopped right outside the site. They don't run regularly so you do have to work out your timings but well worth it!
I wouldn't allow the distance of the site from the beach deter you if you have young children as the site is definitely worth it and the bus is easy enough. You can park in Woolacombe but it's expensive and you need to get there early!
The only other slight negative which again is no reflection on the sure is it is exposed and can therefore be very windy at night. Quite bad at times but we have experienced this at other sites in Devon it's just what camping is about!
The woodland walk was fantastic too and a great idea.
Overall a fantastic break and a fantastic camping site with fantastic facilities and staff. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely go back.
This is a lovely campsite - spent a week there on 2 premier sites with friends. First campsite I've been to with a tap on each pitch. toilet blocks are great, underfloor heating and individual cubicles with shelves and hooks so you can get dressed easily.
Family shower block has about 6 rooms which have shower, toilet, sink and mirrors, great if you have smaller children.
They make fresh croissants and other baked goods every morning, they go quickly though, but are lovely when warm and fresh out of the oven!
There's a lake which you can fish on, and a lovely woodland walk. Its also big enough for the children to ride their bikes around and actually have fun!
Good washing and washing up facilities too... actually I don't think I can find fault with it! :)
There is a little bistro/takeaway there as well, but we didn't use it.
Mortehoe is a couple of miles up the road and has a few places to eat!
Excellent site and staff
Fantastic location and site. Staff very helpful and friendly (thanks for the fishing tips Glyn). Only slight down side is small shop with limited provisions (fresh pastries lovely). Missed out on the stone baked pizzas which looked excellent as missed advertising for them. Would happily stay again. Thank you.
Charlotte and Steve
Lovely campsite. Really well maintained. Wardens are always helpful and friendly. Really well stocked shop. Captain Hook's shack has lovely food if you want a change from bar b q food.
Facilities are great - best showers! Lovely walks on the farm land which is being developed to a wild meadow. Forest school on site for something different for the kids. Situated perfectly to get to Woolacombe, Croyde and Putsborough beaches.
Have just got home from 2 nights here. The weather was horrendous but we still had an amazing time due to this being such a great campsite!
Very dog and family friendly which we loved staff very welcoming and very friendly! Excellent pitches! We will deffo be back very soon!!
Probably the best campsite we have been to. Unfortunately we packed up early due to the horrendous weather conditions, but we will certainly be back. The staff are friendly, the shop well stocked but could have more variety of meat and dairy products. The showers and toilets are top spec and makes showering in a 'strange' place comfortable. Its lovely and peaceful and just what you need if you are looking for a chilled out and relaxing few days away.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Yvonne it was a shame that you decided to leave early due to the weather. We try our very best to stock all the essential goods and more! But with such limited space available we will not always have what everyone needs. We are pleased that you had a chilled relaxing few days with us.
Our first point of contact with Warcombe Farm was my telephone enquiry to make a booking. It was handled efficiently and instantly gave a feeling of confidence that this was going to be a good place to stay.
On arrival at reception we where made welcome and swiftly dealt with by the ladies in reception then passed over to one of the campsite wardens who we followed in his buggy to our pitch. The pitches are well cared for with enough space to make it feel your own. My wife and I are in our mid 50s and are basic campers in a small tent so we had ample room. We hired a picnic table which was reasonably priced and made cooking and preparing food a lot easier.
The site itself is very well maintained. The toilet blocks are immaculate and roomy. We never waited for a shower.
There is a small fishing lake in the middle of the site which is well fenced and safe. It is also full of fish so catching isn't difficult making ideal for beginners looking to learn.
Well behaved dogs are allowed. We are not dog lovers but I realise that people are and not once did we see any animals running around off the leash and also we never encountered any dog mess. At the far end of the site there is a woodland walk and dog walk. Again immaculately kept and again mess free with lots of dog waste bins provided.
The small camp shop was well stocked and reasonably priced for essential needs. We didn't use the laundry or take away service but the menu looked decent and again fairly priced. There isn't much more I can say here. The staff on-site where extremely polite, helpful and willing to go the extra mile to make our stay a lovely experience.
At evening the noise levels where low and the sound of children having fun or people having a BBQ and chatting and laughing created a very pleasant atmosphere with noise levels dropping after around 11pm.
I think it is fair to say if you want a rowdy camp club, swimming pool, dogs running round and lots of screaming and shouting then this isn't for you. If you want a relaxing peaceful pleasant holiday the book here. The only minor thing I would add is that it might be worth asking for a pitch near the toilet block as some are a little bit of a walk maybe up to 200m max but as I say that is a very minor thing.
Also bear in mind that although the beaches are walkable there are no pavements and it is quite steep. There are buses which the staff will give you timetables.
Thank you for a lovely holiday we will recommend and would come back.
Fantastic stay at this great campsite, very friendly and extremely helpful staff. It was our first time with a caravan and everyone was very helpful. Good sized pitches, great play area for the kids, fishing lake and a wonderful woodland walk for the dog. All the facilities were always very clean.
Stayed for 11 nights and had a great holiday, will definitely stay again next year and would highly recommend it!
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
We are so very pleased that all of the family had a lovely stay with us (including the dog). All our staff try very hard to be helpful and offer advice that they may have gained over the years. We look forward to seeing all your family again.
Camping near Mortehoe
Excellent facilities - hot water, clean and spacious shower block. Each shower cubicle well designed and roomy with shelves to keep clothes dry. Camp Shop stocking essentials, take-away food available. Flat pitches, well kept and plenty of dividing shrubs and trees. Fishing lake.
Only downside is that it is quite a long walk to village of Mortehoe. You can go via footpaths which is slightly longer, otherwise walk includes busy narrow road with no pavement.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Tina as you have pointed out one of the routes to Mortehoe is by using the narrow road, but we do sell a local map for £2.00 that shows a variety of alternative beautiful routes. We do take great pride in the standard of our facilities and it is always very pleasing when we receive excellent feedback. Thank you.
Another great trip
If you have new to camping or not, I would recommend visiting this campsite. Excellent toilet/shower facilities, good variety of pitch sizes and lovely adjoining field for dog walking.
We have been here many times, wouldn't hesitate to recommend. No bar/ clubhouse which is a bonus as far as we are concerned and children well supervised by parents. There are some family shower rooms which are great if you have little ones and a small play area.
How many shower blocks have underfloor heating? Wow. Very well run site, with large pitches, some overlooking the sea. We overlooked the duck pond. Nice walks from the site around the dog walking area and down to Lee. We also walked to Woolacombe but the climb back is tough.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
The walk back from Woolacombe can be a little tough but we do have a bus stop outside the main entrance and the bus runs frequently to Woolacombe and Ilfracombe. We do hope that you visit us again.
Our second visit to this campsite and it has not failed to deliver yet again - I am not a natural camper at all !! but admit you cannot fault the constant upkeep of the toilet/shower facilities here, staff are very helpful and friendly from booking to pitching.
The campsite itself is very well situated and will appeal to various needs, some private pitches some in the middle of it all. Good different themed food served most evenings, small shop serving gorgeous pastries each morning.
If you are looking for a campsite where you need not worry what you are going to get then this is it. Warcombe Farm Camping Park, thank you, you certainly make this unseasoned campers experience far better !! :)
A week in Warcombe
We have just had the pleasure of staying at this campsite for the last week, ideally situated for the North Devon surf beaches but without the crowding of Woolacombe or Croyde. The site is slightly more expensive than we are used to paying but it is well worth it for a pre allocated, flat, well drained pitch, a very clean toilet and shower block with ample amounts of properly hot water (something not always found on sites).
There is a small-but well stocked shop which offers lovely pastries in the morning and the breakfast baguettes in the food shack were very welcome. This is very much a family site but is still quiet enough after dark, there is a decent play park and a very nice walk through the camps own forest reserve down to Lee Bay for rock pooling. Overall highly recommended.
Lovely campsite in a fairly remote location with views of the sea if you are located at the back of the site. Close to Woolacombe and Mortehoe but driving distance if you have young children.
A couple of shower blocks which are a long way from the far end of the site where we stayed but the sea views make up for it.
Having said that, there are loads of showers (so you never have to queue), a good campsite shop that sells pastries in the morning, a children's play ground (with zip wire) and a fishing lake.
Would definitely return
Our recent stay
This campsite is fantastic, large pitches, plenty of room between each pitch, staff very friendly and helpful. We had an accident with our car the day before we were to come home and they were willing to let us leave the car there for it be recovered, you can't ask for better than that! And we were very grateful for their help.
The camping site is very clean, fishing lake, children's play area, camp shop, take away cafe, nothing is too much trouble!
Highly recommend, you will not be disappointed!
