First time at fishing

First time at fishing

 

The joy of catching that first fish whilst on their camping holiday.

Some Guest comments regarding fishing on their holiday in North Devon..

Fishing is available too which was great, as you could hire the rod and basic kit from the on-site store. One of the wardens - Glyn, I think, was really helpful and showed the children how to fish and nothing was to much trouble for him. We joined up with two other families and really enjoyed ourselves. All of the facilities were excellent, clean and tidy.

We would especially like to thank Glynn for his assistance when setting up for fishing. This was our kids first time fishing and we ended up catching over 30 fish that day.

Special thanks to both Dave and Glyn for all their kind help and advice. Glyn is a fishing expert and you'd be wise to listen to his advice. We caught about 70 fish in the well stocked lake.

You get private access to the lake so can fish right next to your van. the weekend was designed around fishing which turned out to be very successful ! Any keen fishers give it a go, the lake is flooded with carp and tench and we caught about 50 carp over the 2 days. (They love crab paste pellets) the toilets and showers where spotless and modern.

 


Superb friendly site

We never stay at the same place twice - until we found Warcombe Farm Camping Park.

Four of us, two being small children, arrived a week before the summer rush period. We immediately fell in love with the site, and were placed close to the children's play area, which was excellent as we could keep an eye on our children whilst we had a glass of wine in the evening.

There is a lake at the bottom of our camping field but this is really well managed and we didn't once have any concerns for our small children.

The site is really well kept with a fantastic shower block. We never once queued for a shower, the water was always piping hot, and the block looked as if it had been cleaned just before we went in.

The staff are super friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We loved the views but were limited by the typical British weather. Saying that, the area is lovely with lots to do in a short distance from the site.

We loved this site and returned the following year and had another lovely holiday.

A real gem of a site.

Fantastic!!

Where shall I start?! We are a family of 4 with 2 children ages 7 and 4.

The campsite has stunning views and has to be one of the best sites we have stayed on for facilities.
The showers and toilets were always clean and never had to queue despite it being the night of the season.

We only had a takeaway once and it was Chinese night, it was fabulous. Myself and my husband had the Chinese and the children had a chicken burger. We were pleasantly surprised that the chicken burger was a plain chicken breast on a roll ( not a pre bought dodgy burger!)which was perfect for our 2.

The play area was great for the children, again one of the best we have seen on a campsite.
The staff were all incredibly friendly and always acknowledged us and stopped to speak to the children.

The only negatives which are of no reflection on the site itself are: the distance to the beach, but this can easily be overcome. The first day we attempted to walk it along sandy lane and via Woolacombe bay holiday park. It was fine going took about 40 mins would have been a lot quicker but our little boy was just having 'one of those days'. coming back we decided to try the route coming back through Twitchen holiday park. It was tough as it was an incredibly hot day and we were all tired after spending all day on the beach. We got as far as Twitchen and then stopped for an Ice cream and my husband walked the rest and went and got the car to pick us up. The following day we enquired in the site shop and they gave us details of the bus, fantastic!!! It stopped right outside the site. They don't run regularly so you do have to work out your timings but well worth it!

I wouldn't allow the distance of the site from the beach deter you if you have young children as the site is definitely worth it and the bus is easy enough. You can park in Woolacombe but it's expensive and you need to get there early!

The only other slight negative which again is no reflection on the sure is it is exposed and can therefore be very windy at night. Quite bad at times but we have experienced this at other sites in Devon it's just what camping is about!

The woodland walk was fantastic too and a great idea.

Overall a fantastic break and a fantastic camping site with fantastic facilities and staff. Would definitely recommend it and would definitely go back.
