As camp sites go - very good
Spent 3 days and nights at the site - which is excellent and the staff are friendly and helpful. Unfortunately it rained heavy on and off for the 3 days) 18 hrs constant in one duration, which spoilt our holiday somewhat. However when the sun shone the views from the site were superb. Will look more closely at the weather prior to booking next time but will return.
A little sun, a little rain...
6 nights at Warcombe Farm gave us chance to experience the site in sun and rain.
In the sunshine, the views were stunning, the dog walking area a holiday highlight and the nearby beaches a family favourite.
But this is England and inevitably the rain came... but the campsite consistently delivered everything described on their website... very clean, warm, spacious showers, a welcoming smile when buying our breakfast pastries each morning, the luxury of hot meals to order some evenings and a quiet nights sleep each night (aside from the rhythm of the rain!).
Wouldn't look anywhere else if we return to camp in this area again.
We have just returned from a 4 night stay at Warcombe Farm.
I have to say that I have never stayed at a campsite before with bathroom facilities like they have. AWESOME is the word to describe them - spacious, clean, plenty of large shower cubicles, sinks and toilets and underfloor heating!
The campsite pitches are varied, some in quite open fields and others in hedged areas which we were pitched on. There are plenty of electric pitches.
Small things can make a big difference - outside the reception/shop there is a lovely herb planter that guests can help themselves to for cooking with. What a lovely touch.
All the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.
We would definitely recommend Warcombe Farm to anybody wishing to visit North Devon and we will most certainly be returning next year. Thank you.
Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thank you so much John and Sarah! Look forward to seeing you again in the near future. And we are planning to plant another herb garden on the opposite side of the park next year so more people can liven up their campsite cooking!

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!
This is a great site. Staff very helpful, even helped us recycle our tent after the rain got the better of it. Good well stocked shop, beaches with walkable distance and nice Sunday carveries in Mortehoe Will return soon, hopefully in a lovely new caravan.
Hope to visit again very soon
We love this site, and the past two years we've pitched up our large tent, but hopefully next visit will be with our caravan. Highly recommend the site and the area. Very friendly staff and spotlessly clean facilities. One of the best camping sites we've ever visited.
My friend and I visited here for 3 nights from 28 -31 Aug. Lovely campsite. We has an electric hookup plus water tap and grey water drainage. The pitch had a hardstanding space for a car and was very spacious.
The farm shop sold basic supplies; bread, milk, snacks, toiletries and wine!!!! Opened from 8. 30-21. 00. Friendly and knowledgeable staff for info where to eat around the area.
Outside the shop there is a free herb garden where you can help yourself. The best thing was the shower block; huge cubicles, with a toilet, sink, lighted mirrors, and underfloor heating. This is the best I've ever seen on a campsite. Hair-drier for 20p although I didn't use it. I don't know if I was lucky with the timing, but I didn't have to queue!! The toilet block next door had about 5 toilets with a sink and it was all very clean. It also has 2 sink areas for washing up and 2 washing machines and tumble driers.
When we arrived, you have to go to reception to book in, and drive a bit further up so someone can show you to your pitch. The electric hook-ups include a bit that lights up at certain times, and because we were fairly near to the toilet/shower block, I didn't need to use a torch at night.
Some of the pitches have a bricked BBQ, which we didn't have, but you can ask for bricks if needed. I recommend this camp site.
October Camping Holiday!
Great stay, helpful friendly staff. Very dog friendly with great facilities including a field within the site where they can go off lead, footpaths straight from the campsite... no need to get in the car! Great showers and toilets, really clean and warm especially good late October!
You feel very secure with the barrier entry and exit gates. We will be back again.
Birthday weeks holiday
omg what can I say .. lovely staff, lovely sea view pitch, the most amazing showers and toilets, fantastic North Devon campsite, lovely walks from the site, lovely restaurants in Woolacombe, can not wait to return in 2016!
Return visit over the bank holiday. Great campsite, excellent facilities and only 10mins by car to Woolacombe beach for the surf. Staff are very helpful advice herb garden to pick from is a great idea to spice up the cooking. Highly recommend this camping site and will be back again!
Easy to find this site... not far from Woolacombe itself. The site is pristine with really great facilities. Our pitch (49) was in the far corner of the site near to the vast dog walking area! The views to the sea were great and the grounds maintained to a high standard.
All of the staff were really chatty and friendly and helped us sort out a few issues with our caravan.
We plan to return next year!
Lovely well run site
Despite a late arrival long after the office had closed, we were made to feel very welcome by the on-call warden who showed us down to our pitch in the dark.
We had a lovely pitch with sea views and plenty of privacy (worth paying a little extra to be off the main avenues) and only a shortish walk to the excellent immaculate facilities.
Fantastic, even in rain
I'm a seasoned camper. I've been all round UK and Europe in tent and camper van. This place is straight into my all-time top 5, purely on the fact that even if it's not the best located campsite in this part of Devon, it is extremely well run.
It bucketed it down and the ground was soggy, so I was swiftly given some chipped straw to soak it up 4. 5 minutes after asking for it. Better washing facilities than I have at home (really - underfloor heating in a campsite!).
The site itself is a good mix of hard touring pitches and meadows for us tenters. The small shop has the basics and camping spares. Various food offerings on - different nights for those needing a rest from cooking. If it had a bar and was right by the beach I think I'd stay forever. Thanks Warcombe - another satisfied customer and thanks for being so kind to my little boy on his first camping trip to Devon.
We had a fab stay here on a campsite that really does care!
Outstandingly clean ablutions, really friendly ground staff, we arrived late but Judith made sure we were directed to a perfect plot with a sea view.
The only thing the poor staff cannot control is the unbelievable attitude of some of my fellow campers, I am speaking of one couple with the hugest camper coach outside the main ablutions and wash up area, who seemed to be under the misguided impression that bigger means they have the right to be aggressive and extraordinarily territorial!!! So my advice if you see this brown and cream behemoth of a motorhome ask for a different plot well away!! They are a wee bit odd. .
Everyone else was extremely gracious. Especially the ladies in the shop with dog treats :)
We will be back!
Lovely, Tranquil site
This was mine and the wife's first camping trip together. I found the site on the Internet. Luckily a friend had stayed and said how Clean the site was so I decided to book. When trying to book on the Internet it didn't give the option for a tent, but rather a tourer. I can't remember how much it was stating but I thought it was reasonable for a week with electrics (they have several types of pitches with picnic benches, barbecues, storage etc. ) around £145 I think. Because of the website I decided to give them a call. The receptionist was so helpful, and advised for my tent for the week it would only be £100!!!!!! Wow. We even got to choose our own pitch (2 days before this got changed to one next door as the one we chose had been rained on and was muddy)
Anyway, after a very delayed 5 hour journey we arrived at the site at 5. 30pm on Saturday. We were last ones that day I think. We quickly checked in and was shown down to our pitch, stopping on the way to be shown WC's etc. really good and detailed so we knew exactly where we were.
The pitch itself was in a lovely little spot. All pitches had shrubs and trees around them making them very secluded, and peaceful. We quickly set up and decided to go shower and get something to eat. We used the family showers and must say we were so impressed!! Very very clean and tidy. Underfloor heating. You didn't mind walking around barefoot (which I remember when I was a kid was a no go when we went camping) I think there was sort of a mutual respect between everyone as at no time did we ever see any tissue or paper on the floor. People mopped up after themselves. It was just a generally very pleasant experience each time the toilets and shower rooms were used.
We were on plot 136, the only thing that we have said we will do different next time is to choose to a plot on the opposite end of the park as at around 5pm the sun was off the tent and it got a bit chilly very early.
We asked to feed the ducks one day and was told we could call them and they would come over. I never knew ducks come when called but they do here! (The fishing price for a day on their lake is very reasonable so be sure to check it out if you're into that)
The staff were always very polite and always said hello when they went past (even on their buggies)
All in all to was a very good stay for us, and for first time camping together (the wife had never been before) ensured that we will go again and again.
Thanks to all the staff for their hard work in maintaining this lovely place. They truly do a great job.
PS never make the mistake of thinking a coastal path is a path down to the beach. 4 hours later we returned to the tent after a nice hike. But the coastal path just outside the tent is beautiful, with picnic benches so definitely worth going there if you want a picnic.
