Barricane Beach

Barricane Beach

 

Barricane beach offers a picturesque and secluded spot, tucked away in between the rocks. It is famous for it'd tiny cowries and other exotic sea shells, rarely found on her larger neighbour Woolacombe beach. These shells travel along the Atlantic jet stream, swept from the shore of a Caribbean island thousands of miles away across the Atlantic and then to be dropped in near-perfect condition in this tiny little inlet on the North Devon coast.

The best pickings for shell seekers can be after large storms.

Around a half a mile from the main Woolacombe beach, Barricane is ideal for rock pooling, sun bathing and taking a dip in the sea.

 


What a Gem of a site

We chose this site from the internet and booked 1 week here just before the schools broke up. The site is lovely with excellent shower/ toilet blocks best we have experienced on a campsite, even had underfloor heating.

Our pitch overlooked the lake with its fishing(well stocked), ducks and resident flock of crows! Stunning sunsets over the lake. Our pitch was a premier pitch and had a BBQ stand for your own BBQ, Bike Stands, electric, water, and drainage and a picnic bench. It was level grassy with a tarmac chipped area for the car and very large. Our pitched was bar fenced on three sides. Walking round the site there are lots of pitches all tucked away for privacy with mature planting separating them.

The dog walk area, what can i say, not the usual 10m square. The walk is a very large field at the bottom of the site with fantastic views and many wild flowers and grasses, very natural. Our dog loved it.

Very good children's playground

All in all the site was excellent with friendly helpful staff. The site was immaculately maintained.

We will definitely return.

Thank you

Ladies

Lovely staff!
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!
