Combesgate beach

Combesgate beach

 

Combesgate beach is a pretty secluded beach located at the far right-end side of Woolacombe offering some attractive rock pools - ideal for children. It is the first true sandy beach as you walk down from Mortehoe to Woolacombe along the coastal road.

Combesgate is one of the Marine Conservation Society recommended beaches,. Flat golden sands, rocks to either side, a gentle waterfall to the rear, hidden in a little cut out.

The best time to visit is between low and mid-tide, when activities can include swimming, surfing, building sandcastles and exploring the rock pools. Be aware that access to the beach itself is via a number of steep, but well maintained, steps. Combesgate is probably not be the best option for families with push chairs or those with mobility in mind.

 


We arrived on a rather misty rainy afternoon, but the campsite more than made up for that! We had a very friendly welcome and after a walk through what we think is the best dog walk we have come across, headed through the woodland to a pub in the village of Lee, perfect!

There was entertainment that evening from Josh Doyle, an excellent singer who entertained in a canvas marque set up for one night only.

Great toilet and showers, spotless and with lovely under floor heating, hotelesque!!

When weather did clear what great views of the sea and a fab campsite with fishing lake.
Great location for walking the coastal paths or just a short drive to Morthoe and Woolacombe.
We cant wait to return in our campervan to what is now one of our favourite campsites, thanks guys.

Changed my view on camping-Fabulous!

We have just returned from a week long stay at this amazing site.

We had an eleven hour journey to get there so hoped the drive would be worthwhile - it definitely was.

On arrival we were shown to our pitch by Glynn. He showed us round the site explaining where everything was. Our pitch was so big that our electric hookup didn't reach, Glynn took us to the site shop and helped us with another hookup and then came back to our pitch to ensure we got up and running. So helpful and much appreciated.

The pitch was fantastic with gorgeous views and was situated next to the dog walking area. This was just lovely and had open areas with picnic tables.

The shower and toilet facilities were faultless, spotlessly clean and warm. The top block had family shower rooms which were even better. There was always plenty of hot water and no queues.

The site shop was well stocked and reasonably priced.

The location of the site is perfect with plenty to see within a short distance drive or walk. The beaches were beautiful with lots of lovely cafes.

This was a brilliant holiday, friendly helpful staff, fab pitch, great site and perfect location. Can't wait to see you again.
