Lee Bay

Lee Bay

 

Just two miles from Warcombe camping park, down Warcombe Lane, the village of Lee Bay, with a captivating sand and shingle beach. The bay is framed to either side by an imposing craggy coastline. Set in a wooded valley, Lee is a photogenic village, sometimes referred to as 'Fuchsia Valley', with most residents gardens having the shrubs in full bloom from summer through to autumn. Lee Bay really does deserve it's Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty status.

There are some amazing walks in and out of Lee, coastal and heavily wooded in places

Bathers should be aware there are no lifeguards and the area is known for its strong currents. Yet at low tide, even in the height of the summer it remains a peaceful spot with its many rock pools and small sandy beach and the aroma of seaweed.

 


A must visit campsite!

Our kids loved this camp site and were sad to leave - pitch 27 was our home for a week, great spaces for playing games, a play ground within sight which is well used up to 9:30pm. Helpful staff - warm welcome, Glynn is your man for fishing tips.

The reception shop for basics is open til 9pm, and opens 8:30am with fresh pastries. We found a Tesco shop 15 mins away. Lovely walks from the site... suggest couples stay at other end of the site to the play ground for a more secluded experience.

Near playground be prepared for a noisier experience (kids play to 9:30pm ish), than the pitches further afield.

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thank you for such a positive review the kids sure do love the play area and many parents like it near so that they can relax and watch their children having a good time. We lock up the zip wire and send the kids home when it gets to 10 so that everyone near that area can enjoy the peace.

Good site, very reasonably priced too. The new shower block is amazing although they could do with an extractor fan as it got extremely hot and steamy.

We stayed when the weather was very bad and the site did get quite water logged and muddy where everyone drove to and from the toilets. The first half of the site is very exposed to the weather and has a great view, past the lake there are some trees and bushes to shelter you.

It's very close the to both Mortehoe and Woolacombe beach.

We will be going back again next year we had a great time despite the bad weather.
