Combesgate beach

Combesgate beach

 

Combesgate beach is a pretty secluded beach located at the far right-end side of Woolacombe offering some attractive rock pools - ideal for children. It is the first true sandy beach as you walk down from Mortehoe to Woolacombe along the coastal road.

Combesgate is one of the Marine Conservation Society recommended beaches,. Flat golden sands, rocks to either side, a gentle waterfall to the rear, hidden in a little cut out.

The best time to visit is between low and mid-tide, when activities can include swimming, surfing, building sandcastles and exploring the rock pools. Be aware that access to the beach itself is via a number of steep, but well maintained, steps. Combesgate is probably not be the best option for families with push chairs or those with mobility in mind.

 


Great site

Just back after nearly a week camping. We left a day early as rained solid for previous 2 days and tent had reached its limit (as had patience with 2 young kids... ).

On the nice days however was by far the best site we've camped at. Facilities exceptional, not seen better anywhere. We would deffo return, if weather guaranteed!!

One slight negative point, one of the ranger staff was a bit grumpy. We came back to site one night at 8mph, 3 over the limit. He stormed over to the car like there had been a major incident to tell us to slow down. We were doing 8mph, slower than most who drove into site that night!

That aside, all others were top notch but it did leave us miffed and feeling like naughty school kids!

Great site though, deffo go back if they'd have us

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thanks for your great review Paul - sorry that the weather was not so good - it is tough camping with youngsters when the rain sets in sometimes!
Regarding the speed issue, we have been on the ball this year, as there have been many complaints and problems with folks just going too fast - and it's a real concern when there are lots of children around.
We are glad you enjoyed our park and hope that you will visit again soon! Hope that the summer warms up for us all!

Cannot fault all your efforts, we all really appreciated your lovely site and facilities, even the dog had a lovely exercise area!
We hope there is a space left for us this year.
Highly recommend.
