A gem of a site with the most helpful team!
I guess the problem is with a 5 star review of this wonderful site is that it will become more popular and then we won't be able to book!! That's just me being selfish. So, what about the site? Well, it's a lovely place, not overly big but generous in terms of pitch sizes for touring tents and vans. From the friendly welcome to then being guided to your pitch, everything here is just brilliant.
You have a reasonably well stocked shop for emergency essentials, plus good (and importantly) clean on-site showers and toilets in one block. The layout of the site is also very good, featuring a fishing lake in the middle.
The top end of the site features fairly open pitches, grass and hard standing, most serviced with water, waste and electricity whilst lower down on the site, you can choose a more private pitch secluded by trees and bushes. We elected to stay at the top as we wanted to be close to the play area so we could watch the kids having a good time whilst we sat out front keeping a watchful eye.
The staff always seemed happy to help, and to give them extra credit, when our car decided to break down we knew we would have to extend our stay unexpectedly by one night, the team were more than happy to sort us out and would even help to move us if they needed our pitch (as it may have been booked).
Access to the site is pretty good, the last remaining road up to the site is wide enough in most places for cars to get through, but some parts do narrow. The site is literally half a mile up this road, so no great problems there.
So are there downsides to this lovely site? Well, a few minor points.
The 5MPH speed limit was NOT observed by many irresponsible drivers and on a couple of occasions we needed to stop our 5 year old from crossing the track way when cars were coming as they seemed to pay no attention to the children playing in the park and the possibility one could run out (even though the main areas of the park are fenced, the zip wire is not). I think this could easily be rectified by adding speed humps.
Pitches at the top end of the site are much higher up and are obviously prone to the elements including the wind - be prepared to really tie down your tent or awning.
Local ciders - it would have been great to have the shop stock some local West Country ciders or ales. All that seemed to be on offer was Belgian cider and the usual European lagers!
Noise - although not a major problem, the noise does not really subside until at least 11pm, the park seems to be in use quite late (although there was a note to say this was not to be used past dusk) and I know the site wardens are out and about checking noise levels.
A swimming pool would be nice! (Note to the owners: if you are not making any money from the fishing pond there's an idea!!)
All the above points are very minor, and I cannot say enough good things about this site - Warcombe Farm is thoroughly recommended and we hope to return soon.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
We always take on board any suggestions offered to us by our campers. Our wardens at around 10.30pm walk the site and ensure that any noise is not excessive as we are aware that people are starting to settle down for the night (but let's not forget that people are on holiday). Our staff are constantly monitoring the speed of the cars around the site and we will consider speed bumps for the future. With regard to the play area, annually we are inspected by a independent play inspection company to ensure we comply with all the necessary requirements.
We look forward to seeing you again next year.
Perfection!! Again and Again
Third time here and again it was perfect. This campsite spoils you completely from the 5 star amenity blocks to the tranquil setting. We love that the site is quiet and is so peaceful in the evenings.
The staff again have been fab, always friendly and going above and beyond for everyone. There is lots do to in the surrounding areas, this time we did the tractor and trailer rice, a 12 mile bike ride, hubby fished on the lake for a couple if days and hubby and son went down to the trout farm near Barnstaple and caught us tea.
We also took a trip to Padstow to sample Rick Steins delights. I would highly recommend.
New additions this time were the different food wagons that came in. All were Fab, stone baked pizzas matched the standards in Italy, Paella from The Cauldron was as nice as what I've sampled in Barcelona and I have to say Miles fish and chips were nicer then Magpies in Whitby!
I'm sure I've missed so much out but I cannot stress how lovely and perfect this site is for couples and families. We love it!!
Thank you for making our holidays full of memories, we are planning next years visits already!
A truly first class campsite
Had a fabulous week here 10-17th August. The campsite is lovely, we had a pitch by the lake and it felt very special. Sampled the pizzas - almost thought we were in Italy!! The wash facilities are 5* and the staff are great.
Enjoyed surfing at the local beaches, just quite sad to leave really. Hope to return soon!
This is the best camp site we have been to. Facilities are excellent and always exceptionally clean. Staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing is to much trouble, would recommend to anyone.
Just spent the weekend and had a great time. Campsite was great, clean, spacious, friendly staff and a warm welcome from the staff in the onsite takeaway - great food too! Will definitely be returning.
Just like to say had a great weekend staff very friendly and helpful very clean site and great pitch sizes thanks.

We have just come back from our first visit and it really is a fantastic place. The layout of the site makes it different and special; the shower block is superb and the staff were so friendly. The nearby woodland walk is also a great feature for families and dog walkers alike. We definitely hope to visit again.

We are having a fabulous stay as always at Warcombe. Wanted to say what a fabulous new takeaway - great nachos and Chinese. Lovely to have such good food, well priced and convenient for nights chilling on the campsite. Keep it up! Would recommend anyone to try it.
Fantastic Campsite, the staff are very friendly, the facilities are lovely and clean. Perfect place to stay I can't rate it highly enough. Just booked again for this year! :-)
Omg what can I say? Beautiful secluded spot with sea views, the best toilets and showers I have ever seen on a campsite, lovely quiet site and lovely friendly staff, can't wait to come back in 2016

Just back from 4 days on the site - will definitely be back! excellent facilities, ideal pitches, friendly staff. Wished we had been able to stay longer.
Just returned from a two night stay at Warcombe Farm. What a terrific site! Great location, excellent facilities, spotlessly clean and very friendly staff. We will definitely be returning. July 2015
Our whole family were utterly enchanted with Warcombe Farm.
The site is laid out with the the visitor in mind, really spacious plots with excellent facilities. We loved the 'FREE' herb garden outside the site shop.
The showers/toilets are beyond doubt the cleanest, most welcoming that we have ever used, even better than some hotels you might stay in!
The surrounding countryside and coast are breathtaking in their beauty. We particularly enjoyed the walk from the site to Lee village.
Count on our continued business, the kids would not have it any other way!

Stayed at Warcombe farm recently for 3 nights. It was fabulous and the best camp site I have ever stayed on. Extremely helpful and friendly staff and have thought of everything campers could need. Lovely size pitch with sea view. Definitely will be returning O:-)
