Lakeside Camping

Lakeside Camping

 

There are just a few campsites in North Devon that can offer you a well services pitch beside such a tranquil lake. The lake can offer photogenic opportunities at all times of the day.

 


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.

The Ridlets

Fantastic site and staff.

This was our first visit and we were not disappointed. Generous size pitches, clean site and spotless high quality showers/toilets. The staff were friendly and helpful especially Glyn whom stayed after work for about 40 mins to teach my husband and daughter to fish. We will be returning.
