Combe Martin Beaches

Combe Martin Beaches

 

Combe Martin is just 9-10 miles from Warcombe Camping Park, depending on the route you take, around twenty minutes by car. Worth a day out, take a wander down the selection of Combe Martin Beaches, spend the day relaxing on the main beach or be a bit more adventurous and work your way round to the smaller, rock pool filled beaches. Let your kids play in the sea or explore among the many rock pools.

Combe Martin is more of traditional seaside village, you will find pubs full of Devon charm where you can enjoy a local ale, or West country cider. Traditional fish and chips is available close to the beach.

A bit of effort, moving eastward along the coast, will take you to Wild Pear Beach, considered to be the prettier beach at Combe Martin. You will need to follow the way-markers, descending from the SW coast path to the east of the village. The final twenty or so metres can be challenging.

The bay is picturesque and sheltered, the water is lovely, and for those who enjoy clambering over the rocks there is plenty to explore.

 


Brilliant site

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

Lovely Campsite!!

A lovely, clean campsite! The pitches are very large - we had a huge tent and a gazebo and a car and there was still room for the boys to kick a football around.

Fab amenities - the toilets are clean and the shower rooms (wet rooms) are fantastic for parents with small kids. Very spacious and an added bonus of under-floor heating. We never had to wait for a shower, but having said that, we were at the end of the season and the campsite was fairly empty!

Everyone around the campsite is very friendly. Fish and chip van was very popular, as was the huge oven that arrived to cook stone-baked pizzas!

The men/boys hired fishing rods and caught loads in the on-site lake.

Unfortunately, our trip was overshadowed by our 9 year falling and breaking his upper arm. An ambulance had to be called and most of the time was spent in and out of the hospital. I cannot thank and praise the staff enough (especially Judith) for their help and concern. We shall hopefully be returning next year as there is so much that we didn't get to see or do.
