Barricane 'Shell' Beach

Barricane 'Shell' Beach


Barricane beach, the next cove along from Woolacombe is famous for the thousands of shells that can be found there among the rook pools. A beautiful shingle beach that all the family can enjoy.


WOW, My 1st camping experience, never before have I been so nervous. Well My nerves were calmed the minute we arrived. It's beautiful. The staff were really friendly. They said it wasn't that busy so they had given us pitch 148, but if there was another we preferred, we could set up there and just let them know. Ok so it started to rain the minute we pitched up but that didn't dampen my spirits.

The very first thing I did was check out the toilets, my husband thought I was mad but he's a regular camper and didn't understand the importance. The bathrooms were lovely I've stayed in five star accommodation in Mexico and they could not compare to the facilities in Warcombe Farm. I especially loved the family bathrooms.

Laundry room was great didn't really use it as just myself and husband.

Country walk was lovely and local pubs were again brill. No complaints from us.

Very picturesque setting, would recommend it to anyone that has never been camping before, eases you in to the process.

Will go back asap.


An excellent site!. All previous reviews about new shower / toilet block are spot on!. The wardens went about their routine business and didn't seem to bother anyone, but, were extremely helpful if approached!.

The dog walking area is immense! and leads onto some very nice public footpaths down to the coast, fully planted with new trees - the previous report regarding 'losing your dog' is now out of date. Usual problems exist with this field however, namely that some dog owners do not, or will not, 'clear up'.

The only downside of the week for us was that although the site has an area for late caravan arrivals, we found a family pitching a tent directly opposite us at 11. 30pm onwards!, headlights on, doors slamming, kids running amok etc, etc. with little regard for anybody else. All in all though, an excellent site.

Local facilities though are not so good - you often have to stand in a queue to get a beer in the nearest pub and the fish and chip shop in Mortehoe is nothing short of a disorganised rip off!.
