Sheep grazing on Morte Point

Sheep grazing on Morte Point

 

The Southwest Coast path running from Lee to Morte Point and on to Woolacombe, you should be prepared for a roller-coaster of a walk in places and to have your breath stolen away in others just by the views.

In a few sections there are strenuous flights of steps leading in and out of the valleys on the way, as you make your way towards the lighthouse at Bull Point. The path is well signposted. At the beach at Rockham Bay, though there a few steep steps down to the beach, you can spend a little time cooling your feet when the tide is right. From here the coast path runs along the ancient slate bedded and jagged ridge towards Morte Point.

Head back inland to take the opportunity to explore Mortehoe, a pretty place with places to eat, Mortehoe is just slightly inland from the coast path. All perfect for a Devon walking holiday.

 


What a lovely site!

Very large pitches with plenty of electric hook-ups We visited with our 2 Grandchildren aged 18 months and 2. There was so much space for them to run around without bothering other campers and also a lovely adventure playground on site. Our Grandchildren were particularly fond of the ducks and ducklings.

The toilet and shower block were the best we have come across since we have been camping and were kept extremely clean. There was also a family wash room with a full size bath, over-bath shower, toilet and baby changing facilities which proved to be very useful with 2 toddlers. Also disabled facilities.

The washing up facilities were excellent, with numerous sinks, a sink for hand washing clothes, many washing machines and tumble driers and an ironing room.

The site was well maintained and the staff very friendly. Plenty of places to visit around and the beach just five minutes away. A brilliant beach for children as there was a little shallow river which ran down the sand to the sea. Also part of the beach was for surfing and was very popular.

Best site we have stayed on. We will definitely be back.

First class experience

Have just returned from a long weekend at Warcombe Farm. I haven't been camping for quite some time, preferring a few more 'home comforts' these days, but friends persuaded me it would be a good idea. . . However, I couldn't have been happier with the whole experience.

My friends and I chose to book one of the Premier pitches by the lake, which gives you your own water supply alongside electric hook-up, gravel parking, BBQ stand and lovely picnic bench. The pitch size is very generous and there was ample room, even though we had quite a large tent. The shower/toilet block are exceptionally well maintained and the under-floor hearing certainly helped sell the idea of camping again.

The welcome we received was extremely warm and welcoming, but the service didn't end there and the staff certainly went over and above in all our contact with them. Glynn and Dave have to a specific mention!

For those of you with canine companions, you couldn't be better catered for. The beautiful 14 acres they have set aside for dog walking and nature reserve is an absolute credit to Warcombe Farm.
Overall a fabulous stay (albeit short) and I will definitely be back.
