Mother duck and family

Mother duck and family

 

The fishing lake is another magnet for birds. During Spring and during warm summer evenings, House Martins and Swallows skim the water to catch insects to feed their young. They nest in the local barns. They fly frighteningly close at times but always seem to miss your head!

We asked to feed the ducks one day and was told we could call them and they would come over. I never knew ducks come when called but they do here! (The fishing price for a day on their lake is very reasonable so be sure to check it out if you're into that)

It's got a lovely fishing lake with lovely ducks that are really friendly we love going feeding them every day.

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.

Our pitch was beautiful at the side of the lake, we loved watching the ducks and the sunset of an evening.

 


stunning campsite

We have just returned from a weeks stay at Warcombe farm, it is by far the best campsite we have stayed on in the 7 years we have been camping. A beautiful site, very well maintained, lovely clean and warm showers and plenty of them, never had to queue, a shop that sells lovely fresh rolls, pastries etc. but get there early, they go very quickly!

5 min drive to Woolacombe bay or you can walk which we also did, about half hour each way but a steep climb back. We pitched at far end of site near to the meadow (pitch 212), a massive pitch, just a few mins walk to the toilets etc., if you prefer to be away from the main area like we do then this area is perfect.

Our 3 kids, age 12 and twin girls age 10, had a fab time, we hardly saw them in the evenings as they played at play park and made lots of friends. The zip wire is brilliant!!!

Very relaxing break and thoroughly enjoyed it... will be back next summer!! thanks Warcombe farm, fab staff to, very helpful.

My family camped on this site the second time and on this occasion we chose a Premier pitch (83) overlooking the lake and the pitch which was huge! As on my previous visit the facilities e.g. Showers, toilets, etc, were excellent.

The views from the site are amazing and there are lovely country and coastal walks on the door step. Also, the Tarka (traffic free) cycle trail is very near to the site but you need to walk/cycle along the road to get to it.

On this visit our pet dog became critically ill and was hospitalised at a vet. The illness was not necessarily connected with the site nor were the site the cause. However, the site dealt with the situation admirably, were very sympathetic and bent over backwards to help in what was a very emotional and difficult situation. Our stay had to be extended whilst my dog was at the vet and the site accommodated this. They site cannot be praised enough! Thankfully, despite the odds, my dog made a safe and healthy recovery. After what was a terrible situation, we have some happy memories and enjoyed our stay at Warcombe Farm. We shall return in the future
