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!!
Best site ever visited
We have a very spacious pitch overlooking the sea very quite and secluded.
Most of the pitches are separated by small hedges or are in grassy glades.
The dog walk is exceptional, 14 acres of young woodland with mown walking areas.
Lots of footpaths off site too.
Hot food and cream teas available 5days a week.
Showers and toilets very well kept and clean.
The M&S of campsites
Excellent! We arrived last Saturday for 2 nights, but have just extended our stay for the second time which will make it just short of a week - we love it and although we were supposed to be touring have ended up using this as our base as lots of fab places to visit, beautiful beaches, all within easy walking and driving.
Very spacious pitch, thoughtfully placed by the staff as it's near the fantastic dog walk - which is literally acres of peace and beautiful walking. Lots of different pitches though to choose from, dependent of what you are after.
Staff are friendly and the facilities and park itself if spotless. The toilets and showers are the best I've seen, underfloor heating and plenty of them, plus there are two blocks so I imagine that even when it's really busy you'd not have the usual queuing, big bonus!
The take away is cooked fresh, and we've tried the evening menu-curry is superb-and breakfast-no catering sausages here! We are sad to be leaving Friday but will return, and definitely recommend a visit.
A very pleasant stay
From start to finish this was a wonderful friendly campsite. A friendly check in and shown to our pitch. We booked a sea view but I think they forgot to trim our hedge to see the sea but this didn't spoil our stay. I would definitely recommend staying here and will most definitely stay again. It's a nice quiet campsite so if you want to play loud music please look elsewhere. I also got a great deal on a camping lamp (thanks Sophie). All in all a lovely holiday and a lively friendly park. See you all again soon xx
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thank you for your review regarding our park. We trim the hedges on a regular basis but we do try and enjoy the lovely wild flowers that grow on the banks around the park. We also delay a little when the birds are nesting. We look forward to seeing you and your family soon.
We spent 8 nights here recently in our motorhome and found everything just perfect. The layout of the campsite is lovely, plenty of grass pitches, with or without electric, lots are quite private with hedges round, then there are more open hardstanding pitches with electric or fully serviced. They are all centred around a very pretty fishing lake.
Two sanitary blocks, absolutely fantastic with underfloor heating and kept spotless! They also have a small cafe/takeaway with various menus, including breakfast. The wardens are so very helpful and nothing is too much trouble, especially Glen who, because my husband is disabled, did most of our setting up, and Gloria who put us on a lovely pitch just yards away from both the facilities and lake.
Close to a pub (carvery delicious!). We will definitely be back for more, it's so relaxing and has a fantastic atmosphere!!
Peaceful and spacious
A great campsite, excellent facilities, very clean and well kept. Great play area with zip wire and perfect walks from the site. Arts lessons can be taken on-site which is really great. Would definitely book again.
A nice site.
A great site, with helpful and friendly staff and your shown to your pitch. A good selection of pitches Large, small, open or secluded should suit all manner of campers.
The showers/toilet facilities are ample and are kept immaculate.
There is an excellent 14 acre dog exercise area which reminded me of a mini golf course with a mown fairway.
Can't offer comments with regards the food offered at Captain hook's shack as we didn't use it. TV reception was not brilliant with mainly Welsh channels giving the best reception... Mind you watching England's football performance I'll say no more!
All in all a very nice site Would I use it again? definitely, yes!
First class camp site
Brilliant site, large emplacements, excellent facilities - well kept. Underfloor heating in shower blocks - much appreciated these past few wet and windy days! Friendly and helpful. Would definitely come again.
First time camping and now hooked!
Before I came to your site I was very apprehensive about the whole camping experience! However, I have got to say we had such a fantastic time! I am hooked and am looking into buying our own tent and coming back! All the facilities are fantastic! Clean... In fact cleaner than clean... sparkling! Everyone was so friendly and there to help if you needed it! Amazing! Thank you! We will be back!
What a great place
My wife, our dog Bramble and I stayed here for a long weekend and it was brilliant. The staff are very friendly and helpfully with all the resources in tip top condition. Every facility was clean and well kept and in good repair.
Each pitch is spacious and well maintained. You are guided to your pitch on arrival and allowed time to ask as many questions as you wish plus shown all the routes and locations of everything on site.
It is fantastic for dogs with great walks directly behind the site and as we found out some amazing coastal walking with Lee, Mortehoe and Woolacombe all within a few miles.
I would totally recommend this site from the on site cafe to the very well controlled noise rules, this site was great and we will definitely be back and soon.
100% brilliant camp site for all ages with all types of tent or caravan.
A jewel of a camp site
Great location, not far off the main road as it gets narrower and passing is harder the further you go, especially when towing.
Large pitches with individual hedges for shelter on many pitches and lovely clean modern toilets.
What more could a camper want- sea view? yes, we had that as well but this is limited to a few pitches.
Would we come back - yes. Lots to do in the area and no road noise, it was so peaceful.
This is easily one of our favourite campsites as we always have a quiet and relaxed time when we camp here. The pitches are a good size with lots of lovely green space. The site is very well maintained and there is a well equipped play park that my children aged 7 and 10 really enjoy playing on. The facilities are very good in particular the family shower block offers huge shower rooms, ideal when you have young children to get showered.
The wardens are friendly and welcoming and always visible on the site. I've always found them very helpful and great with suggestions as to what's available locally.
Perhaps the best recommendation is that we camped on this site last summer, booked again this year and already plan to book again next summer.
If Carlsberg did
Fantastic site, my husband and I camp with the two dogs every year for a week in June. The site is absolutely beautiful.
Brilliant pitches and amazing shower and toilet blocks that are spotless. The dog walk is perfect.
The staff are so helpful and friendly I must say a big thank you to Glynn who recommended that I use the Woolacombe Stables after speaking to him and saying I was an accomplished rider who competes wanting to go on a beach ride. I wasn't disappointed it was brilliant. Thank you Glynn
Nothing is ever too much trouble for the staff. We used the on-site cafe Captain Hooks a couple of times for our evening meal. The lasagne was very nice.
Best camping, Great all round
What a lovely stay we had, being woken with birdsong. Had a weekend stay for a friends 40th birthday camp-out. Lovely people who run the place, even came and wished my friend happy birthday with a scone!
Our spot was overlooking the lake, so good for fishing. The site is great all round and location... is close to various beautiful beaches, gorgeous rugged walks, plenty of roads for cycling and of course sandy beaches, various sized, excellent for surfing or swimming.
Very clean amenities and the family shower rooms were fantastic compared to other campsites I've stayed on. The plots are well kept, the site is clean and tidy. The staff were extremely friendly. The site has a wonderful atmosphere, unlike others which seem pretty soulless, this one is just beautiful, with a lake in the middle and secluded pitches, it just made for a wonderful stay.
There has been a lot of effort gone into the upkeep of this lovely site, long may it continue to be successful.
Definitely be be back for another visit, and I have my eye on which pitches to book next time!! ;)
