The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

 

600 feet below Lynton is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway, powered by water and which is well worth a ride.
Two rivers - the East Lyn and the Hoaroak - combine just inland from the harbour at Watersmeet and sweep down a spectacular gorge and through the village to the sea. Reminders of the disaster in 1952, when the rivers flooded and a torrent of water washed many cottages into the sea with great loss of life, can be seen in the Memorial Hall.

There are some lovely walks from Lynmouth, notably up the river gorge to Watersmeet where the National Trust have a shop and tea rooms

 


Another fantastic holiday thanks to Warcombe

Well yet again Warcombe have exceeded what great looks like. Arrived to be greeted by a very welcoming lady in the small but well stocked shop and reception. The pitch was the one we had requested and was in perfect condition for us to set the caravan up, perfectly level and well drained. The pitch was alongside the well stocked fishing lake and was well presented.

The toilet and shower blocks have every combination you could ask for, personal showers, family rooms and even baths and all would be a credit to a 5* hotel.

The location of the site is perfect for visiting North Devon and I do really like the security barrier that is coded to your pitch.

I did fish most days and should you need any tips or advice then give Glynn a shout and he will tell the best spots and might even let you know his secret baits - all tried and tested with Julie who this year did manage to beat last year's record of the smallest fish ever.

Gloria knows all the best places to visit and is a wealth of knowledge on what is good to see and where to go, really helpful so nip into the shop and ask her.

Would recommend a visit to the beach for a curry night, think it Barricane beach but Glynn will point you in the right direction.

Michael and the rest of the team are a friendly bunch and do make you welcome and the small but well thought out changes real enhance what last year was excellent site even better.

The big question is will we be back next year - you bet we will - we definitely know we won't find better.

A jewel of a camp site

Great location, not far off the main road as it gets narrower and passing is harder the further you go, especially when towing.

Large pitches with individual hedges for shelter on many pitches and lovely clean modern toilets.

What more could a camper want- sea view? yes, we had that as well but this is limited to a few pitches.

Would we come back - yes. Lots to do in the area and no road noise, it was so peaceful.

Happy Anna
