Lakeside picnics

Lakeside picnics

 

There's something very summery about a picnic by the lake, quiet and calm - except for the ducks at times of course - a day away from the bust beach and a relaxed, chilled time together, all part of your campsite holiday experience.

 


Short drive to the beach

The facilities on this site are second to none, immaculate, spacious, practical and plentiful. The pitching areas are ultra large and generously spaced, our pitch did slope slightly which meant we had to pitch side on, but this was not a significant problem.

If you enjoy walking the far end of the site links up with public footpaths to Mortehoe, Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.

If you should walk into Ilfracombe on a Bank Holiday be sure to reserve your strength for the return journey because a taxi (Ilfracombe Taxis) will set you back 19 pounds for a 3 mile trip.

Well worth a stay if you don't mind a short drive to the beach.

This site is excellent.

We had rain almost every day and the site was becoming a muddy skidpan but they did come and sprinkle sawdust on the mud if asked and towed us off the pitch so they did their best. The play area is one of the best we've seen and the bathrooms are amazing!- underfloor heating and large sensor operated showers - it was posher than at home!

There are some lovely pitches set amongst trees further down the site - we were in a row on a field which was disappointing but that was because I'd booked a 'super-pitch'.There was one night that was so windy the caravan rocked and shook all night which terrified me but the view from our caravan was amazing - we could see the lights on the Swansea coast. There were 3 washing machines and 4 tumble dryers which was really helpful, and all the facilities were spotless.

It's worth remembering that any pitch is only as good as your neighbours - we had a family with 3 members that coughed unbelievably heartily 24/7 and who let their toddler cry and scream at half past 2 or 6 in the mornings. We can laugh now but it wasn't the dawn chorus we were looking for!

Overall a site that scores 98% with us - we would love to go back but it's taken us nearly 8 hours to get back to Brighton!
