Cycling Holidays in North Devon

Cycling Holidays in North Devon

 

Visitors to North Devon often bring along their bicycles, and many of our camping families use them on the park.

 


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.

Excellent in every way

On arrival at the campsite we received a warm and helpful welcome. We were escorted to our pitch, which was huge with electric hook up, and given instructions on where to best place our trailer tent.

It was a sloping pitch right by the fishing lake, with a lovely view across the lake. We were advised to pitch the trailer tent with the hitch facing outwards in case we needed to be towed off the pitch (a bad weather precaution). We experienced terrible weather over the coming week but the pitch did not flood at all. The camp site is on top of a hill so gets the brunt of the weather coming off the Atlantic. You need to use strong pegs with the guy ropes!

The facilities on the site were excellent in every way - underfloor heating in the showers which was luxurious. The take away was a welcome distraction from the weather with an extensive menu. The fishing lake is very picturesque but you will need to purchase a permit to fish. Note: these are checked randomly every day.

The site is very well kept. It was full most of the time we were there and at no time did the facilities become unkempt. The site is about a mile out of Mortehoe and just behind Woolacombe. Not really within safe walking distance anywhere, although you can access the coastal path from the back of the camp site. Plenty of places to eat nearby (short drive).

The beach at Woolacombe is huge and tends to get really busy. The beach at Croyde (approx 6 miles down the coast) is much smaller with excellent surfing. Ilfracombe is about 4 miles and has a cinema, shops, restaurants and nice harbour area.

I'd go again but not with a tent of any sort - all that flapping canvas! Didn't seem to matter how tightly we guyed it down it was still making a racket. Didn't last the 10 days we had booked, came home after 6.
