The view from the Chapel overlooking Ilfracombe Harbour

 

St Nicholas Chapel, dating back to the 1320s is accessed by a sloping path, wheelchair access is possible, but both ascent and descent can be 'interesting'.

 


Best site we have stayed on.

We returned from a week long stay at Warcombe farm yesterday. I don't normally leave reviews but really felt that I had to on this occasion. Firstly when we arrived we did have one slight blip as we couldn't be put on the pitch that we had requested. This was of no fault of the site it was merely because of the high volume of rain they had experienced the pitch was too wet. However the situation was swiftly sorted out and the alternative pitch was just as good.

All of the staff that we dealt with were very friendly and helpful. I can highly recommend the cream tea which you can order from reception it was amazing!

Usually we probably wouldn't stay on a site as big as this as we would be worried about noise and cleanliness of the facilities. Neither was a problem though. All of the sites that we have stayed on have had reviews stating that the showers were spotless but I have never felt that way until I stayed here, and although we had a fully serviced pitch and used the shower in the van on the occasions that we did use the showers they were indeed spotless! ( and I am a very very fussy clean freak!)

So overall this site is amazing so much so we enquired about having a seasonal pitch for next year and fingers crossed for that!

All of the 5 star reviews can't be wrong!

Beautiful surroundings

Lovely campsite tucked away in the Devonshire countryside. Mortehoe is a 30 min walk along unpaved roads with no street lighting, which made for a tricky evening walk, but taxis easily available.

Lovely pubs in Mortehoe, with good food at reasonable prices. Nearby Lynton and Lynmouth are a revelation. The cliff railway worth a ride and some lovely little shops, just ripe for a potter. Cream teas are widely available and we took advantage as often as we could.

Stunning coastline and some lovely beaches. The only issue we had with the campsite was that not all pitches were level. However, the fact that fresh pastries were delivered every morning and Captain Hooks takeaway was available for lovely bacon baguettes made up for this.

There us a fantastic dog walking area, and as rightly bragged about on the camp website, the amenities are excellent. Warm, clean and tidy building. Spacious, fabulous showers. We would definitely visit again.
