Lovely campsite tucked away in the Devonshire countryside. Mortehoe is a 30 min walk along unpaved roads with no street lighting, which made for a tricky evening walk, but taxis easily available.
Lovely pubs in Mortehoe, with good food at reasonable prices. Nearby Lynton and Lynmouth are a revelation. The cliff railway worth a ride and some lovely little shops, just ripe for a potter. Cream teas are widely available and we took advantage as often as we could.
Stunning coastline and some lovely beaches. The only issue we had with the campsite was that not all pitches were level. However, the fact that fresh pastries were delivered every morning and Captain Hooks takeaway was available for lovely bacon baguettes made up for this.
There us a fantastic dog walking area, and as rightly bragged about on the camp website, the amenities are excellent. Warm, clean and tidy building. Spacious, fabulous showers. We would definitely visit again.
Love this campsite! :)
This was our first visit and were late booking for the bank holiday weekend, which meant they were fully booked, but they were amazing to contact us to let us know they had a cancellation (yay for us!)
Well I have to say this is the most organised and best campsite we have ever visited! We aren't into big campsites and like a bit of piece and quiet so it was perfect for us. We were lucky enough to have a pitch with a sea view and the pitch size was ample for us, they are really good and discuss what pitch size is best for you as they have all different shapes and sizes.
The facilities, toilets and washing blocks were fabulous! So clean and with heated floors feel very luxurious, I actually looked forward to a camp site shower!!
They accommodate dogs really well and the woodland field is such an added bonus. They even give your dog a little goodie bag on arrival :)
We had fresh croissants (get there early!) from the on site shop for breakfast and hired a wooden bench which they brought over to our tent straight away.
Looking forward to booking our next trip :) :)
Super one night stop over!
We stayed here sadly just for one night as we had a wedding nearby, but we will definitely be returning. We are local but love to make the most of our beautiful county instead of paying taxi fares! The staff from point of booking to leaving were incredibly helpful, super friendly and couldn't have done more to make our stay enjoyable.
The pitch was perfect and the facilities great. Thank you so much, we look forward to seeing you again! (The wedding was amazing too!)
Sadly we only got to stay here one night but what a great campsite. The staff are really friendly and chatty, and make you feel really welcome. The pitches are really spacious and the facilities excellent. The roads on site have plenty of room for manoeuvring. The breakfast baps are yummy! We will definitely be returning.
Lovely quiet campsite
My family and I have stayed here 3 times this year on varying grass pitches with our caravan. The site is large and offers many choices of pitch type.
There is a small camp shop, which sell all the essentials and a great little café open all day serving breakfast and evening meal.
The pitches are all well maintained and have electric hook ups, fresh water and drainage
the staff are super friendly and helpful with any query or problem.
No question that we shall return next year.
We'll stay here again
Stayed here for the bank holiday week and were greeted by friendly staff on arrival. The campsite was full when we arrived (it emptied out through the week) but at no point did we feel crowded.
Part of the site has been terraced and we had a lovely large pitch with its own water tap and a view of the fishing lake.
We've been camping for a long time and can genuinely say that the facilities (shower blocks and washing up areas) are above average and kept clean, but they can get very busy as the site is quite big.
The shop is small but has all the essentials and in the morning there are fresh cakes available. There is also a takeaway van that serves breakfasts, afternoon tea and a variety of meals in the evening, although we didn't try this out so can't comment on the quality.
There is a barrier which you get an access code for and as a result it feels safe and secure, especially as there are always staff around the site.
The site is in a good location for exploring the North Devon area and within easy reach of both Woolacombe and Ilfracombe.
In our opinion it's an ideal place to stay if you don't like the big corporate sites.
PS watch out for the toads!
Fab time had by all
Situated in a great position to discover the local towns and villages of Woolacombe, Mortehoe, Ilfracombe and Croyde.
We stayed on pitch 87 by the lake which had full facilities (water, waste and EHU). I recommend taking 20m of hose for the water and waste as IMO these aren't in the best position to make the most of the pitches views. We arrived with about 12m and had to visit a local shop to get the extensions (an unexpected and unwelcome additional cost), but we know for next time.
Our pitch had a great view across the small lake, which had lots of ducks to entertain the children. Fishing is available too which was great, as you could hire the rod and basic kit from the on-site store. One of the wardens - Glyn, I think, was really helpful and showed the children how to fish and nothing was to much trouble for him. We joined up with two other families and really enjoyed ourselves. All of the facilities were excellent, clean and tidy.
We don't have any negatives about the site, but feel it is on the heavy side of ££ and this would be our only consideration about returning vs other sites in the area.
First Class !
Late break in Devon for 4 days, booked this site for location and have been delighted with all the amenities. Large well maintained pitches, great layout of site, the best shower and toilet facilities we have ever had with hot water any time of the day, nice and warm and plenty of them!
Superb walks ( if you have dogs it's ideal)
Highly recommend... .
A lovely weekend break
We booked this last minute and wasn't disappointed. We were greeted by friendly staff in the reception area and shown to our nice sized pitch. We needed a longer lead to reach the hook up but ours was a bit worse for wear so one of the wardens took it away and fixed it for us!
We took two dogs and we and they loved the walks through the fields at the back.
The toilets with their spaciousness and underground heating were fabulous.
The shop sells basic supplies which is fine as we take our own stuff anyhow.
The site is very clean and tidy, with super staff going that extra mile to help.
The only negative for us is that it was quite a distance to walk down to the beach but that wouldn't deter us visiting again.
Excellent campsite. We chose because of central location to the interesting area and its 5 star rating. We were not disappointed.
Lovely warm welcome, Glyn gave us excellent local knowledge of the area and fantastic recommendations of restaurants and places to see.
Pretty pool and well maintained site. Lovely short walk to a coastal bay.
Excellent clean washing up facilities and laundry.
One highlight was the shower blocks, large cubicles, underfloor heating, great shelving units for your towels etc. A hook in each cubicle and possibly ones under the sinks to hang your bags oh and free hair-dryers are needed to make it 100%!! But a definite 99. 9% from me!!
Having bought a Caravan for the first time we chose a campsite close to home for our first 'trip'. From the initial phone call to them to book a 4 night stay they could not have been more helpful and friendly. Arriving early evening we were shown to our pitch and everything was very clearly explained.
We chose a more private pitch towards the end of the campsite with trees on 3 sides part grass part hard standing. The whole site is incredibly well maintained (especially considering we were the other side of the school holidays!). The shower block was beautifully, spotlessly clean as was the washing-up facilities.
We chose this site as there was a fishing lake and dog walking areas. A lovely 14 acre site with paths well mown and plenty of bins!
Would not hesitate to recommend this site and we will definitely be going back next year... well done to everyone, they obviously work extremely hard and it shows!
Fantastic Camp Site
We just returned from a week here. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay, There is nothing not to like about this site. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly, When booking over the phone the lady I spoke to was wonderful, she spent time helping me select the pitch we would like - Thank you to that lady :0).
This site itself is ideal if you are looking for peace and quiet and some privacy. The pitches are very well spaced and well maintained. Before booking I did check out the reviews and the website, and it was partly due to the few 'bad reviews' that helped me to choose this site! I like peace and quiet, I like not to have another caravan or tent slap bang next door and I love the fact that if there are people being a bit noisy that they are asked quieten down. The website makes it clear that this is a campsite for people who are looking for a quieter kind of holiday. But it was great that the reviews confirmed this does happen :0).
Upon our arrival we were shown to our pitch and offered lots of help if needed, all we had to do was ask. We had a sea view pitch which was lovely, but all of the pitches are nice and spacious. The shower/toilet blocks are superb, with underfloor heating and were extremely clean.
The dog walking area is great (we do not have a dog) but still had a wonder round, this is area is really well thought out. I would also like to add how true to life Warcombe Farms website is, quite often I find that a website shows you the 'best bits', photos taken at flattering angles, pitches made to look larger than they really are etc. , but Warcombe Farm is like the images/description on their website.
It is really lovely site and ideal location for exploring this part of Devon. We would definitely stay here again, WELL DONE ALL AT WARCOMBE FARM AND THANK YOU FOR A LOVELY STAY!
Fabulous views, excellent facilities: huge showers/wet rooms and washing up area very practical, all very clean. We loved our weekend break. We were able to walk from the campsite and join the coast pass.
The village of Lee, walking distance, is beautiful and definitely a must to visit.
The nature reserve / garden they have created is gorgeous.
We just stayed for 2 nights, the camp is so lovely, clean and peaceful, we will definitely be going back next spring. We couldn't fault it at all, it was my first time camping and I loved every minute of it, didn't want to leave.
A great place for family camping
A lovely, well run camping park with outstanding facilities. The family bathroom was a huge bonus. Very friendly and helpful staff. Fantastic views too. A great location for walks. We will definitely be back!!
