Our second visit and each time we have stayed a week out of the main 'season'.
The toilet and shower blocks are spectacular - always warm, very large showers and spotlessly clean at all times. Very luxurious if camping in the cooler months as we mainly do.
Many of the pitches around the edges are landscaped with bushes or dry stone walling.
In the centre of the site is a fishing lake for those who want to partake, This is safely fenced off so that children don't accidentally roam in.
The site has very friendly owners, and you can buy essential things like wine, bacon, chocolate biscuits and milk (!) from the small shop in the office.
You can walk to Mortehoe over the cliffs from the site, which takes about 45 minutes and is very beautiful. You do need a car to get into Woolacombe to visit the stunning beaches.
Happy VW Camper
Friendly staff made us feel very welcome.
Agree with most comments. Beautifully maintained site. Everything from open pitches for groups of friends to secluded pitches for just the one tent.
Friendly staff made us feel very welcome. A chap even waited and showed us to our pitch and then told us where nearest water, recycling were and quickest way to the showers.
Shower and toilet block was fantastic. Underfloor heating is brilliant. Toilets, sinks and shower cubicles (with stools and lots of shelves!) were immaculately clean.
The staff were forever trundling around on their buggies maintaining the site - cleaning up, emptying rubbish, mowing the pitches etc.
All in all was delighted and thought it was quite good value for money.
A decent lake to fish
We (2 adults, 3 children-15, 9 and 18 months) visited here the last week in July and even though there had been quite a lot of rain the previous weeks found the ground to be really good-enough 'give' to get pegs in without being that wet that you could pull them straight back out again.
We had had slight reservations about the site before arriving as it was more expensive than we usually pay however I think it was money well spent. As already mentioned by others staff were always noticeable, driving round on their little buggies, emptying bins, cutting grass etc.
We stayed on the left hand side of the lake along with the grandparents who were in a motorhome which was ideal for my fisherman father as all he had to do was cross over, walk through the gate and cast his rod! He is a very experienced angler and while I personally can't comment on the fishing he said more than once it was a decent lake to fish.
My oldest son and daughter enjoyed the freedom of being able to ride around safely on their bikes and play in the fenced off playground. The dog thought she was in heaven with the massive dog walking area! We also made good use of it kite-flying. Even our youngest enjoyed feeding the ducks everyday.
There is now, new this year I believe an aviary in a quiet corner of the dog field with a wild bird breeding program being set up. We visited this and while it was interesting to view I think some information signs about the birds would have been useful.
Woolacombe and Ilfracombe are your typical tourist seaside spots-very busy beaches and shops selling overpriced buckets and spades.
The village of Mortehoe was simply lovely, very picturesque with traditional old church and the B&B there does scrumptious cream teas which you can sit outside to eat while watching the world go by!
If you go by car out of the main entrance and take your first left down a hair-raisingly narrow road you come across the fab secret of Lee Bay. This has a small shingle beach with rock pools for exploring and a delightful little cottage cafe selling very reasonably priced cream teas and sandwiches etc.
All in all a lovely area and a campsite we are already thinking of returning to in October.
Perfect location for touring North Devon
Spent the first 10 days of August here and was not disappointed. The site was over 3/4 full and not once did we have to queue for a shower. The showers were immaculate and very well thought out.
The pitches were varied, we had a lovely secluded pitch in a private glades area with sea view. Well worth asking on booking. Great play area and well maintained. Very friendly staff.
Perfect location for touring North Devon, 1.5 miles from the Golden Sands of Woolacombe perfect for a traditional family holiday. Good bus service outside site direct to both Ilfracombe and Woolacombe.
A truly lovely camp site which we will definitely return to. Only thing which we would have found useful to know is the campsites road aren't suitable for scooters but good for bikes. We were visited by friends staying on local sites who too were very impressed with Warcombe Farm facilities.
A camp site to put on your favourites.
We visited this site after reading the reviews and decided to treat ourselves to the luxury showers and even upgraded to a lake side pitch. All worth the money. Cost us with four children and two cars the best part of £50 a night, but well worth it.
The showers are of hotel standard and you can easily shower with a young child, and not even need the family rooms. Brilliant.
The washing facilities (of clothes) are the best I've ever seen. Four new washing machines underneath, and four new tumble dryers on top! The cleanest wash I've ever had on a campsite!
We had typical English weather, and on one occasion had almost 36 hours continual drizzly wet rain. We noticed that when campers up and left and there was any possibility of the tent pitch (you do have to pitch tent and car etc in the way the site tell you to) being damp or muddy then chippings were immediately laid. We had gained such a small patch entering our tent, and simply asked for some chippings, which were readily given. The rain left a huge boggy puddle at the end of our pitch and I thought we were going to be left with mud, but no, after a day it had completely drained and no mud!
We pitched at the bottom end of the field around the lake, and the lower down you go the more secluded and protected from the wind you become. Simply ask when booking telling them what you'd prefer.
Definitely a camp site to put on your favourites.

Really Generous Pitches
Spent 9 days here in August when the weather was mainly windy and raining. The staff were really friendly and helpful - after showing us to our pitch, they put chippings down to soak up some of the rain and mud. The pitches were really generous and the strategic planting of trees made you feel like you also had some privacy.
The shower/toilet block was lovely and warm with piping hot showers. The shower cubicles were also quite spacious which is great if you've also got young children. There was also a shelving unit, chair and a bin - again very useful. They were always clean too.
The site is ideally situated for getting to other places such as Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Exmoor etc. We tended to drive to where we were going and then walk as didn't really like to walk down the narrow roads - especially with the children.
When we go back to Devon, I would definitely visit this site again.
4 glorious sunny days
Have just returned from Warcombe Farm having spent 4 glorious sunny days. Stayed on one of the new premier pitches which are absolutely enormous. It was not only fully serviced but also included a picnic table and brick built BBQ.
The staff were the friendliest and most helpful I have come across at any site, and the family bathrooms are better than most 5 star hotels. This site must surely be one of the best if not the best in the whole of the UK.
There's an excellent pub at the top of the lane and only a short drive away is Woolacombe with its stunning beach, shops, pubs and restaurants. Forget giving this site a 5 star rating it deserves a 6!
Family shower rooms are amazing
What a lovely site, on arrival friendly staff welcome us to our very large pitch.
The site is well laid out, all pitches are spacious and the children's play area is very well looked after and maintained, as is everything on site.
Toilet and washing up facilities in one block with washing machines and dryers. The floor is heated and toilets were clean and spacious.
Family shower rooms are amazing, wet room complete with toilet, sink, bench, steam free mirrors and plenty of hangers! The water is warm and powerful but not too hot for children!.Very lush to be honest.
The staff are friendly and when my daughter fell in the play area they picked me up from our tent on one of the sites buggies and were very attentive and looked after her well. Thanks Darryl!
The on site shop is so reasonable, it could be so overpriced as most on site shops are but everything is priced well, bottle of wine £3.49, corkscrew 99p. They do baguettes fresh every day and there is an on site cafe that has plenty of choice and again reasonably priced!
The dog walking area has beautiful views and is 14 acres of recently planted trees which our dog loved bounding around.
Fishing lake. Hubby forgot his tackle but we saw fish being caught.
We are very very impressed with this site and are definitely going back later this year!
The owners, staff and facilities are commendable
Toilets were cleaned regularly and there are signs saying if unhappy find a staff member!
Go visit this site, take a drive down to Lee bay and have a ball!.We did
What a great place
Just finished a weeks holiday at this park with family and friends, and I must say what a great place.
Lovely park, very clean and the staff are very friendly. The toilets and showers are superb and plenty of hot water. All in all a great place to camp.
There is also a lovely very well stocked pool for the fisherman and also at the far end of the park there are some birds of prey in a large aviary, can't wait to return
Great facilities, excellent toilet and showers.
We have just returned from a week at this site and will definitely return next year, maybe for two weeks. Great facilities, excellent toilet and showers.
We had a premier pitch and would request the same again. Well stocked and priced shop. We spent a fair bit of time fishing and the lake was very well stocked. Pitches large and well laid out with no feeling of being on top of each other.
Not even back a day and already thinking about making the 5 hour trip again soon! Lots of local walks around. Pubs close by and Woolacombe beach is a must.
Fish and Chips from Mortehoe village were excellent.
Relaxing and Enjoyable
We visited this site in early July, I had been here before, but a long time ago. I liked it then, and the site has certainly improved further. We paid a little extra, and had a great pitch. The site was quieter than I expected, less than half full.
There are two shower blocks. The main one and a further family shower block, which we were invited to use, as we were close to them, and the site was quiet. The main shower blocks were very clean (cleaned daily) and we never had to queue. There are two family rooms on the end of this block too. The family shower block rooms are big, and each contains a shower, wash basin, and toilet. I can imagine these are a big boon to people with young families.
Our pitch was spacious with plenty of room for tent and car, and we had a hedge on three sides. We found these pitches to have a nice secluded feel. Higher up the site there are more open pitches, and rows of level terraced pitches run across the site. Tents and caravans were spread out evenly across the site, so we never felt at all crowded.
There is a play area, a small shop, and a small fishing pond, (which I didn't get to try, but looks nice). There is a takeaway near the shop, open a few hours a day, again we didn't try it. There's even a couple of washing machines on coin meters.
The staff were very helpful.
The site is in walking distance of the nearest pub, (which also does meals), though you will have to walk on the road. And just a short drive from Woolacombe and Ilfracombe
We had an very relaxing and enjoyable stay and we will be back.
A large pleasant site with plenty of hook up areas for caravanners and a lot of space for camping.
The camping areas are very pleasant especially past the fishing lake, the owners have left a lot of the original vegetation in place giving lots of secluded pitches and some larger areas.
Pitches at the top of the site slope, and past the lake tend to be flat. A great cheap site for an occasional visit in a tent.
Large site, 100+ pitches. Has its own fishing lake and a lot of space for kiddies to play and run around.
We went in the middle of the summer holidays, which was brave as we do not have children. The site operates a good policy of no children playing after about 9pm and this was adhered to while we were there.
Overall, the site was excellent and would recommend it as a good base for the north of Devon.
This is a lovely campsite. The toilets and showers are extremely clean and well maintained. There is a small well stocked shop. The staff were friendly and helpful, especially Glynn who helped me start my car on departure day after the battery had gone flat.
Great week had by all!
We have just returned from a family week camping... We had pitch 129 which is massive and perfectly situated for the toilets, lake and park. The toilets are pristine and we never had to queue. The showers surpass the toilets easily being the best I've ever had camping, the shelving units is brilliant! If all the family showers are full the normal ones are plenty big enough for an adult and child.
Glyn is brilliant! Friendly and loved by all the children, in particular my son Oscar! We will, I'm sure return one day, however due to policy and party size I'm not sure it will be the annual family camping holiday we hoped it would be... We need somewhere that would allow 5/6 tents all of one party which is a shame but definitely would return if group size was smaller!
Thank you all
