Barricane Beach

Barricane Beach

 

Barricane beach offers a picturesque and secluded spot, tucked away in between the rocks. It is famous for it'd tiny cowries and other exotic sea shells, rarely found on her larger neighbour Woolacombe beach. These shells travel along the Atlantic jet stream, swept from the shore of a Caribbean island thousands of miles away across the Atlantic and then to be dropped in near-perfect condition in this tiny little inlet on the North Devon coast.

The best pickings for shell seekers can be after large storms.

Around a half a mile from the main Woolacombe beach, Barricane is ideal for rock pooling, sun bathing and taking a dip in the sea.

 


A lovely campsite to stay on, nice size pitches, and brilliant shower facilities which are kept clean and tidy.

We had a lovely 3 night stay here and would stay again if we come back to Woolacombe.

Best site we have stayed on.

We returned from a week long stay at Warcombe farm yesterday. I don't normally leave reviews but really felt that I had to on this occasion. Firstly when we arrived we did have one slight blip as we couldn't be put on the pitch that we had requested. This was of no fault of the site it was merely because of the high volume of rain they had experienced the pitch was too wet. However the situation was swiftly sorted out and the alternative pitch was just as good.

All of the staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend the cream tea which you can order from reception it was amazing!

Usually we probably wouldn't stay on a site as big as this as we would be worried about noise and cleanliness of the facilities. Neither was a problem though. All of the sites that we have stayed on have had reviews stating that the showers were spotless but I have never felt that way until I stayed here, and although we had a fully serviced pitch and used the shower in the van on the occasions that we did use the showers they were indeed spotless! ( and I am a very very fussy clean freak!)

So overall this site is amazing so much so we enquired about having a seasonal pitch for next year and fingers crossed for that!

All of the 5 star reviews can't be wrong!
