We visited this site this last weekend.
Extremely impressed with the toilet block - we've visited quite a few 'top end' sites and have never seen such a fantastic clean heated block with free hot showers. It would shame a posh London hotel.
The site itself is close to a number of excellent (and not too grockly) beaches - it is clean, well spaced and the caravans look down on a very attractive lake, with the sea in the background.
We found it amazing to be charged only £16 per night.
A marvellous time
Just got back. What a great site. The shower block is a good as it gets.
The tent pitches are spaced and landscaped to give a really nice atmosphere. The staff were really welcoming and helpful and it does have a great family atmosphere.
It is very likely we will go again.
How good was it?
Well we went for the first time with out 2 year old and had lousy weather, plus a tent we had never used before and yet had a marvellous time. Well worth a visit!
First time camping ..
.. with the family and could not have wished for a better start. The site is very clean and well maintained with super shower and toilet facilities.
Easy to get to and find. Staff were very friendly. Price is excellent, and serviced pitches available.
All in all an excellent start to our 'camping holidays', and a site we will definitely be revisiting.
First Time Campers
Shower block fantastic
We spent a week at Warcombe farm and had a fantastic time.
Our pitch was at the bottom of the site, surrounded by trees and shrubs giving plenty of privacy. The shop was well stocked with a calor gas refill being half the price we paid for one at outdoor action!!!
Shower block fantastic, although we were at the far end of the site neither us or the 2 small children felt the need to travel to them in the car!, a few people did.
Would definitely go back. Prices reasonable too.
What a great campsite!
Situated near Ilfracombe and close to Woolacombe. There's a bit of a trek if you stay in some parts of the camping / tent field, but it's worth it when you see the views at the top!
Super deluxe shower block with heated floor and ample room for everyone! Fishing pond was great, lots of beautifully kept fish.
The views were fantastic and the staff were really friendly.
Shame the campsite wasn't nearer to the town centre (Woolacombe / Ilfracombe) as I don't think you could walk to either, but there was a bus route which was quite good. You more or less have to drive everywhere and the nearest supermarket is in Ilfracombe but the shop on site which sells the basics (lots of beer and wine.. always a bonus!)
There was a man who sold fish in an old ice-cream truck, great if you were barbecuing!
Would go again!

Great site with good clean facilities.
The views across the bay to Lundy island are lovely. Nice walks near by - Mortehoe excellent pubs and fish and chip shop. Good things to do near by and beaches too.
Would recommend this campsite and would go again.
A well kept, well run, clean friendly site.
The staff are very very helpful and friendly. I read loads of reviews about the toilet block and I can back those reviews up it's great warm and clean with plenty of hot water. The shower cubicles are not match boxes either, a good size with shelves to keep your clothes dry .. a real credit to the owners.
We use an American 30ft Motorhome and there was loads of room on the fully serviced pitch we were allocated, lots of room to move the motorhome about for perfect position overlooking the lake. The lady on reception let me know that they might create a few more super pitches, over the winter, higher up the site which will help getting a satellite signal!
We enjoyed ourselves so much we will be back again in early July before the big summer rush! Thanks to the owners for providing such a wonderful facility... highly recommended.
Great for children
Very nice camp site. The excellent facilities can be a few minutes walk depending on where you pitch as it is a large site, but you can always drive there if you are totally bone idle.
The site staff are very friendly and helpful. It is quite exposed to wind being on the coast line but there are plenty of sheltered pitches for tents, many with service hook ups if required.
Great for children with an excellent play area and lovely fishing / duck pool in the middle of the site all set in beautiful country side.
A major plus point is that there is no club house to ruin the peaceful surroundings.
Would thoroughly recommend this site as a base to explore North Devon. I doubt you will find a better all round site than this.
Good Pitch Sizes
We have just returned from our first camping trip with the children, what a great start.
Lovely site, it was clean and tidy, good pitch sizes, superb shower and toilet facilities, friendly staff and nice play area for the children.
The takeaway was excellent if a little slow, the prices were pretty reasonable too.
We would definitely return.
Superb spot for Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Croyde.
Just had our first family camping trip here and thoroughly enjoyed it.
The shower block was fabulous - so warm, clean and tidy. A far cry from my Guide camp days!
Playground was great for the children although the aerial slide was a little noisy when being used after hours.
Superb spot for Woolacombe, Ilfracombe and Croyde.

This was a perfect site for me. Not too large and over crowded and in a perfect location for getting to the surf on Woolacombe Beach.
The site is very well maintained while managing to keep the rural feel. The shower and toilet block are in a league of there own and can only be described as luxurious. There is a combination of pitches from open plan to secluded plots surrounded by trees and shrubs for complete privacy if required.
At the end of the site they have their own woodland which makes for a great walk and has fantastic views out to sea.
The staff were very friendly and the food at their small take away was very welcoming after the journey down.
In my opinion it would be hard to find a better site than this for what we look for and for that it has gone to number 1 in my book.
Great time camping
This was our second trip to this site and had a great time.
They have added more play facilities for children which was very popular. To remain the best site in the area they need to keep improving.
You can hire all fishing equipment to use their fishing lake at a reasonable price and the takeaway food was good.
Bank Holiday Camping
We visited Warcombe Farm during the August bank holiday weekend. 4 adults and 2 children (5 and 2.5) spread over two large pitches (10.5m x 11.5m) with EHU. This easily accommodated our Diablo 600 and car
The site itself is slightly sloping at the top but seems to level out towards the bottom. The children's play area is well maintained was very popular with the children. There is ample grass area to run around in.
The toilet block is excellent and the showers are large with a storage system to stop your clothes getting wet.
The shop is small and a bit expensive but there is a Spar about 0.5 miles towards Woolacombe and a Tesco in Ilfracombe.
The on-site take-away sell very good home cooked food, not just the usual fried thing and chips, and I would strongly recommend it. There is a pub at the end of the lane which provides a carvery as well as bar food. You can walk to it but you will need to walk down the road as there is no pavement. The walk takes approx 10 minutes.
There is a fishing lake which seemed quite popular although not my sort of thing.
Woolacombe beach is a 5 minute car journey away. Miles and miles of sand, great surf and a stream which kept our kids happy for hours. All day parking is £4 or £5 depending on how close to the beach.
If we visit this area again I would definitely consider staying there again.
What a lovely site!
Very large pitches with plenty of electric hook-ups We visited with our 2 Grandchildren aged 18 months and 2. There was so much space for them to run around without bothering other campers and also a lovely adventure playground on site. Our Grandchildren were particularly fond of the ducks and ducklings.
The toilet and shower block were the best we have come across since we have been camping and were kept extremely clean. There was also a family wash room with a full size bath, over-bath shower, toilet and baby changing facilities which proved to be very useful with 2 toddlers. Also disabled facilities.
The washing up facilities were excellent, with numerous sinks, a sink for hand washing clothes, many washing machines and tumble driers and an ironing room.
The site was well maintained and the staff very friendly. Plenty of places to visit around and the beach just five minutes away. A brilliant beach for children as there was a little shallow river which ran down the sand to the sea. Also part of the beach was for surfing and was very popular.
Best site we have stayed on. We will definitely be back.
Short drive to the beach
The facilities on this site are second to none, immaculate, spacious, practical and plentiful. The pitching areas are ultra large and generously spaced, our pitch did slope slightly which meant we had to pitch side on, but this was not a significant problem.
If you enjoy walking the far end of the site links up with public footpaths to Mortehoe, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.
If you should walk into Ilfracombe on a Bank Holiday be sure to reserve your strength for the return journey because a taxi (Ilfracombe Taxis) will set you back 19 pounds for a 3 mile trip.
Well worth a stay if you don't mind a short drive to the beach.
