This is our 3rd year camping at Warcombe Farm and without doubt we will be returning next year as well!
There are a variety of pitches to choose from, but we always choose the Premier pitch as they are completely level, very spacious and come with a sturdy picnic bench, water tap and electric hook up.
The site is extremely well run and the staff constantly monitor the site for any issues, without being at all intrusive. The facilities are amazing. Always sparkly clean and so many toilets and showers, you never have to wait even in peak season. There are also plenty of dishwashing facilities, a laundry room and a well stocked shop.
We love camping at this site as the children thoroughly enjoy fishing on the lake (£3. 50 per rod, per half day). It is also a dog friendly site and there is a fantastic dedicated area for walking your dog off the lead.
It is ideally located for exploring North Devon. We can thoroughly recommend the walk to Heddon's Mouth or a visit to the Valley of the Rocks.
Wifi is available at a charge (£24 for 4 devices for a week). There is a good child's play area, although to be honest there are so many other things to do, our children have not used it!
There are different food vans that visit every night if you don't feel like cooking; from wood fired pizza ovens, seafood vans and even Thai food.
I can't fault this camp site in any way. It is not the cheapest of sites, but it is top quality.
Outstanding touring site - simply the best
We chose this site after becoming disillusioned with our chosen site for the last 19 years in Cornwall. With the help of trip advisors superb recommendations we set off for our 2 week annual break.
Wow we were not disappointed.
From the ease of booking from a well thought out web site, the welcome upon arrival from Gloria and the guide to the pitch we had requested it was the perfect start - could it get better - it did. The toilet blocks would be a credit in any 5 star hotel, the pitch was perfectly level, with quality hook up and water / waste facilities and never once did we have any drainage issues and we did have a few torrential down pours.
The lake is well looked after by Glynn and has plenty of fish for all from little tiddlers to good sized mirror and common carp - we pulled out plenty of low doubles with 14lb our best but did witness one slightly bigger. Glynn is the perfect camp help, whether for fishing tips, where to go in the area, where to eat out or just really friendly face for a chat.
We did have a little challenge with Julie on who could catch on the most bizarre bait - think we lost that one. Yes marshmallows worked, but so did many of the other cocktail treats she offered. Still think she won ' smallest' fish of the holiday as well.
This site excelled all our expectations and we are not easy to pleased and would thoroughly recommend this site to anyone looking for an outstanding experience when holidaying in North Devon.
Big thank you to you all and are already looking forward to our next holidays at Warcombe farm and hope to catch up with Glynn, Gloria and Julie next time.
