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.
Where do I start. What a fantastic site. Arrived a bit early but not a problem, we checked in and got shown to our pitch by one of the very friendly wardens, told where everything was and times of shower block closure(for cleaning). We had a premier pitch and it was well worth the money, picnic table, a brick stand for your own BBQ, electric hook up and clean water and waste water point. Half hardstanding and half grass pitch which was very large.
There are some lovely pitches at the bottom of the park which are very private and sheltered by hedges but they are a bit further away from the toilets.
Shower/toilet block was immaculate and modern. Under floor heating, floor to ceiling tiles and lots of shelves inside the very spacious shower cubicles, hot water never ran cold. Personally didn't used the wash up area but again it was spotless.
Great play area for kids, climbing frames and a zip line. Fishing on the lake is a lovely way to spend an afternoon (plenty of fish eager to bite)so not boring for young children as no long waits for the fish.
Very well stocked shop and friendly staff who will go the extra mile to help you with anything. Also there is an information hut which is well stocked with info on the surrounding area and things to do.
Woolacombe beach is a 5 min drive away, The Tarka Trail for those who bike ride is really good even if you have children as it is flat all the way.
As you can see I have not given any negative feedback and that's because there isn't any. Our only problem now is that this site has set the bar very high for any other sites that we visit.
We loved this site and are looking forward to going back next summer.
Very Good camp site, superb facilities.
We stayed here in a caravan for a 4 night rally with the Caravan Club. A very friendly and helpful site manager made us welcome and was very willing to ensure the rally went well. This is a large well laid out site, there are several types of pitch some fully serviced, some tucked away closer to nature. There is a small lake at the centre of the site giving an nice outlook to many pitches. Pitches are large and many luxurious, with their facilities including a brick stand for your own BBQ and picnic tables. There are two superb facilities blocks with family bathrooms and underfloor heating.
The dog walk is superb. We could not fault the site.
There is a bus stop outside, good walks from site and a cycle track to Ilfracombe (why would you want to go there).
We stayed here for the May Spring Bank holiday week. Upon arriving we were greeted by the friendly reception staff and shown to our premier pitch by a friendly chap on a golf buggy.
The pitch was huge and we were in the bottom secluded section which proved to be a mistake (made by me) as we would have benefited from being closer to the playground as we had our 3 kids with us (10, 7+4) plus our little dog, I didn't quite realise how big the site was!
As it was a premier pitch we had our own water supply, picnic bench and stand for our own BBQ, plus 2 hookup plugs. There was plenty of room for our Vermont XLP and to park our van by the side of the tent.
The toilets / showers are like walking into a posh hotel loo, truly amazing for a campsite and their are plenty too, never having to queue even though the site was pretty full. They were also spotless and deep cleaned daily.
The site had a little shop selling all essentials but the Tesco was only a short journey away in Ilfracombe. The playground is nice for the kids and they enjoyed the mini zip wire. We fished the lake once and had a cracking afternoons fishing in the drizzle catching fish after fish on the trusty sweetcorn.
This is definitely, by far the best campsite I have visited and we will definitely return!
If only the weather could be kind!
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
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thank you for your kind words about our park. We love to see families enjoying the fishing - especially many young people who get their first fishing experience here at Warcombe. Glyn, Mike, Stuart and all the staff are pleased to help and advise with the fishing whenever they can. We do take larger groups outside peak season, as well as rallies and larger family bookings. Give us a call on 01271 870690 to discuss larger group bookings. We hope to see you at Warcombe again very soon!
Myself, my husband and our children stayed here for a week, and we had a lovely week.
There is a great park for children and the facilities are brilliant, there is a shop, a cafe, where the food was lovely and they even do a delivery service in the mornings, if you wanted it. The shower blocks are so clean and very spacious I have to say the best I have seen, they even have a bathroom where I could bath our baby.
There are washing machines and tumble dryers also which came in very handy. There is a lake where my husband and our eldest son went fishing most days, also the views surrounding the campsite are beautiful.
The staff was also lovely and very helpful when needed. Very friendly and polite our son learnt a lot from Glyn who works on the site while fishing, he is great with children and gets children into wanting to fish and see the wildlife around the campsite.
Also Gloria who works there, was a great help showing us around the site and also telling us where to visit with the children; Milky way and the big sheep and Woolacombe beach and the dunes was beautiful, we all enjoyed it very much as a family.
So we as a family we give this camp site Warcombe Farm a 5 star rating and highly recommend staying here we are looking forward to going again next year.
Absolutely lovely place. Owner telephoned me as we were arriving late and the reception shuts at 5, telephoned with instructions. Very polite, helpful. Lovely clean site. Shower and toilet both exceptional, one of the best facilities that we have been to. Will definitely visit again
