Site is a mixture of small individual pitches set into trees and open pitches
Very good kids play area at top of site however this is quite a long way if you are at the bottom of the site, as we were.
Site is very well maintained with immaculate shower blocks.
If you have a dog you would be hard pressed to beat this site. The dog walking field is 14 acres and planted with >12, 500 trees ! It is not only great for walking the dog but good for kite flying and such like.
Can recommend walking down into Lee, walk through the dog field, into the next field, cross the road, over the next stile opposite then follow the path down into the valley. Beach is great for rock pooling and scrambling around.
Large fishing lake in middle of site if you into that sort of thing
My only criticism of the site would be that the toilet blocks are both some way away if you are at the bottom of the site, not good if you really have to go !
Quite expensive for what it is, however we would still go back again, so would the dog !
Friendly staff made us feel very welcome.
Agree with most comments. Beautifully maintained site. Everything from open pitches for groups of friends to secluded pitches for just the one tent.
Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. A chap even waited and showed us to our pitch and then told us where nearest water, recycling were and quickest way to the showers.
Shower and toilet block was fantastic. Underfloor heating is brilliant. Toilets, sinks and shower cubicles (with stools and lots of shelves!) were immaculately clean.
The staff were forever trundling around on their buggies maintaining the site - cleaning up, emptying rubbish, mowing the pitches etc.
All in all was delighted and thought it was quite good value for money.
I'd totally echo earlier comments,
However if you plan on walking to Mortehoe avoiding the roads buy an OS map it is worth it.
It is fairly pricey, £30 a night isn't too far off Travel lodge money.
However, if it is family camping you want, then this is perfect with a variety of pitches from open plan to secluded 'cubby' holes (although large).
Attention to detail such as someone coming to the pitch and explaining things, workers constantly buzzing around fixing / cleaning / mowing the effort is evident.
A decent lake to fish
We (2 adults, 3 children-15, 9 and 18 months) visited here the last week in July and even though there had been quite a lot of rain the previous weeks found the ground to be really good-enough 'give' to get pegs in without being that wet that you could pull them straight back out again.
We had had slight reservations about the site before arriving as it was more expensive than we usually pay however I think it was money well spent. As already mentioned by others staff were always noticeable, driving round on their little buggies, emptying bins, cutting grass etc.
We stayed on the left hand side of the lake along with the grandparents who were in a motorhome which was ideal for my fisherman father as all he had to do was cross over, walk through the gate and cast his rod! He is a very experienced angler and while I personally can't comment on the fishing he said more than once it was a decent lake to fish.
My oldest son and daughter enjoyed the freedom of being able to ride around safely on their bikes and play in the fenced off playground. The dog thought she was in heaven with the massive dog walking area! We also made good use of it kite-flying. Even our youngest enjoyed feeding the ducks everyday.
There is now, new this year I believe an aviary in a quiet corner of the dog field with a wild bird breeding program being set up. We visited this and while it was interesting to view I think some information signs about the birds would have been useful.
Woolacombe and Ilfracombe are your typical tourist seaside spots-very busy beaches and shops selling overpriced buckets and spades.
The village of Mortehoe was simply lovely, very picturesque with traditional old church and the B&B there does scrumptious cream teas which you can sit outside to eat while watching the world go by!
If you go by car out of the main entrance and take your first left down a hair-raisingly narrow road you come across the fab secret of Lee Bay. This has a small shingle beach with rock pools for exploring and a delightful little cottage cafe selling very reasonably priced cream teas and sandwiches etc.
All in all a lovely area and a campsite we are already thinking of returning to in October.
We stopped here for 8 nights the first week of the summer holidays with our 7 and 15yr olds on pitch 36 2 rows away from the play area-ideal pitch if you have small children.
Some lovely secluded pitches at the bottom of the site if you want a peace and quiet. Toilet and shower block is good, didn't have to wait for showers but the last couple of days it did get much busier. Cleaned every day but not all campers kept them that way.
Wardens were lovely always bustling around keeping the site tidy. Lots of people fishing in the small pond but beware of the mosquitoes. Shop was well stocked.
Woolacombe beach is very good plenty of lifeguards about lots of little pools for kids to fish in with their nets at the north end of the beach. Car parking a bit steep at £6 a day. Woolacombe is a good location for a family holiday with children with plenty to do-would recommend it!
Perfect location for touring North Devon
Spent the first 10 days of August here and was not disappointed. The site was over 3/4 full and not once did we have to queue for a shower. The showers were immaculate and very well thought out.
The pitches were varied, we had a lovely secluded pitch in a private glades area with sea view. Well worth asking on booking. Great play area and well maintained. Very friendly staff.
Perfect location for touring North Devon, 1.5 miles from the Golden Sands of Woolacombe perfect for a traditional family holiday. Good bus service outside site direct to both Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.
A truly lovely camp site which we will definitely return to. Only thing which we would have found useful to know is the campsites road aren't suitable for scooters but good for bikes. We were visited by friends staying on local sites who too were very impressed with Warcombe Farm facilities.
A truly excellent site.
The staff were friendly and helpful when we arrived until we left.
The site is well cared for, the amenities were first class. In particular the shower blocks were excellent, clean, generous in size, good water pressure in the showers (at peek times) and warm.
The family showers were especially good, myself and my two daughters had plenty of room and it was nice to have the toilet and handbasin in the same room. The fixtures and fittings used were high quality (hotel standard).
The washing-up areas included two sinks with double drainer, making washing up easy to do and we never had to wait long to use them at peek times.
The site shop was useful (bought playing cards and books), the food on site was also good, a fish and chip van came (best fish and chips ever) and the breakfast cafe was also lovely.
The kids play area was excellent, plenty of things to do, sturdy and well cared for.
This site had some good rules which meant no late night noise was tolerated and the pitching rules were practical and adhered to. The pitch sizes are generous and well planned out. Only a short walk from the amenity blocks / shop / cafe.
I would recommend this campsite to anyone, we have already booked again for next year.
A camp site to put on your favourites.
We visited this site after reading the reviews and decided to treat ourselves to the luxury showers and even upgraded to a lake side pitch. All worth the money. Cost us with four children and two cars the best part of £50 a night, but well worth it.
The showers are of hotel standard and you can easily shower with a young child, and not even need the family rooms. Brilliant.
The washing facilities (of clothes) are the best I've ever seen. Four new washing machines underneath, and four new tumble dryers on top! The cleanest wash I've ever had on a campsite!
We had typical English weather, and on one occasion had almost 36 hours continual drizzly wet rain. We noticed that when campers up and left and there was any possibility of the tent pitch (you do have to pitch tent and car etc in the way the site tell you to) being damp or muddy then chippings were immediately laid. We had gained such a small patch entering our tent, and simply asked for some chippings, which were readily given. The rain left a huge boggy puddle at the end of our pitch and I thought we were going to be left with mud, but no, after a day it had completely drained and no mud!
We pitched at the bottom end of the field around the lake, and the lower down you go the more secluded and protected from the wind you become. Simply ask when booking telling them what you'd prefer.
Definitely a camp site to put on your favourites.
King and Icat
Spent 8 days here from 7th August. Weather was mixed but the site didn't get waterlogged even through the heaviest of downpours. Reiterate previous comments about cleanliness, great showers etc. The pitch sizes are very generous and the surrounding scenery is very pretty.
It's not obvious if you don't know about it, but if you walk through the woodland area (dog walking too) you can exit into a field and onto a public footpath. This avoids the roads which are bad enough in a car but terrible if trying to walk along them (which we did!). The footpaths take you to Lee Bay, Mortehoe and Woolacombe. Steep walk back but from the beach at Mortehoe but you do feel you deserve a glass of wine while you gaze across the lake!
The shops sells a map of walks around the area for a couple of quid, which we found useful.
There are areas for the kids to play, but some loud ones decided to play footie in front of our tent (ball hit car several times), this is down to parents not adhering to the rules, rather than the fault of the site, but maybe some more signs up, say near the toilets would be good. Would recommend the site to anyone, but did see two other sites en route to Mortehoe which looked equally good.
Really Generous Pitches
Spent 9 days here in August when the weather was mainly windy and raining. The staff were really friendly and helpful - after showing us to our pitch, they put chippings down to soak up some of the rain and mud. The pitches were really generous and the strategic planting of trees made you feel like you also had some privacy.
The shower/toilet block was lovely and warm with piping hot showers. The shower cubicles were also quite spacious which is great if you've also got young children. There was also a shelving unit, chair and a bin - again very useful. They were always clean too.
The site is ideally situated for getting to other places such as Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Exmoor etc. We tended to drive to where we were going and then walk as didn't really like to walk down the narrow roads - especially with the children.
When we go back to Devon, I would definitely visit this site again.
We arrived on site after driving over Exmouth on a foggy and wet day without making a booking. We had no trouble getting a pitch as site was almost empty.
This is probably one of the best sites we have been at, we were given a hardstanding pitch at no extra cost, opposite the toilet block. The showers were that good you didn't want to come out. Pitches were large and individual.
At the far end of the site is the biggest dog walk you've ever seen.
Hundreds of trees have been planted around the dog walk so that in a few years it will be a forest.
Would definitely revisit and spend more time at this site (and the showers)
4 glorious sunny days
Have just returned from Warcombe Farm having spent 4 glorious sunny days. Stayed on one of the new premier pitches which are absolutely enormous. It was not only fully serviced but also included a picnic table and brick built BBQ.
The staff were the friendliest and most helpful I have come across at any site, and the family bathrooms are better than most 5 star hotels. This site must surely be one of the best if not the best in the whole of the UK.
There's an excellent pub at the top of the lane and only a short drive away is Woolacombe with its stunning beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. Forget giving this site a 5 star rating it deserves a 6!
Just returned. Week prior to Easter, very quiet. Bliss! and for this price per night inc the leccy! What has been said about the facilities here are just about right, top class, family shower room you would be proud to have in your own home. The facility block opposite from us though more crowded, with wc/wash facility. But again very clean and up together and very functional.
Weather was great, which helps but even so the place was very good. Walked through the large planted field and an abundance of birdlife, seen my/our first skylarks, and heard our first cuckoo of the year. Identifying map of planted trees on display at the field entrance for the tree minded peeps.
Several pubs in the nearby village of Mortehoe offering reasonable fayre and a larger one on the main road to Woolacombe [about 5 mins away] doing a reasonably priced and varied menu. Will return here again with no hesitation.
Family shower rooms are amazing
What a lovely site, on arrival friendly staff welcome us to our very large pitch.
The site is well laid out, all pitches are spacious and the children's play area is very well looked after and maintained, as is everything on site.
Toilet and washing up facilities in one block with washing machines and dryers. The floor is heated and toilets were clean and spacious.
Family shower rooms are amazing, wet room complete with toilet, sink, bench, steam free mirrors and plenty of hangers! The water is warm and powerful but not too hot for children!.Very lush to be honest.
The staff are friendly and when my daughter fell in the play area they picked me up from our tent on one of the sites buggies and were very attentive and looked after her well. Thanks Darryl!
The on site shop is so reasonable, it could be so overpriced as most on site shops are but everything is priced well, bottle of wine £3.49, corkscrew 99p. They do baguettes fresh every day and there is an on site cafe that has plenty of choice and again reasonably priced!
The dog walking area has beautiful views and is 14 acres of recently planted trees which our dog loved bounding around.
Fishing lake. Hubby forgot his tackle but we saw fish being caught.
We are very very impressed with this site and are definitely going back later this year!
The owners, staff and facilities are commendable
Toilets were cleaned regularly and there are signs saying if unhappy find a staff member!
Go visit this site, take a drive down to Lee bay and have a ball!.We did
Stayed for five beautiful days over the Easter holidays. We decided to have a lazy tea and ate from the on site takeaway on our first night, the only words that I can say is yuk.
The site is absolutely lovely beautifully maintained, very clean and like everyone has already mentioned the shower/toilets are stunning. My only complaint would be that both toilet blocks are very close to the premier and caravan pitches, which mostly already have toilet facilities.
If you have young children I would strongly recommend you request a pitch near the toilets, as there can be quite a distance to walk if you're at the far end of the camping area.
Just outside the site about five min drive there is a pub/restaurant called 'Cook island', I would highly recommend especially the all you can eat breakfast buffet and the carvery is stunning. Enjoy.
