Foxgloves in Hedgerows

Foxgloves in Hedgerows

 

The unmistakable flowering spikes of Foxgloves are known for both a reminder of the lazy days of summer and of course their infamous poisonous nature. These high pink flowers can be seen between June and September. Foxgloves can be found all over, in woodlands, gardens, moorland, coastal cliffs and many of North Devon's country lanes.

Foxgloves have large, flat leaves that form the base of the plant, and tall, upright flower spikes. The tube-shaped, pink flowers arranged around the stem are unmistakable. Foxgloves are an excellent source of nectar and pollen for all kinds of insects including bumblebees, moths and Honey Bees.

To encourage wildlife around the campsite we have planted several native flower species in our wildflower meadow and nature trail to provide essential nectar for bees and butterflies.

 


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.

Gotta love camping

Cannot say anything bad
- Both toilet and shower blocks very clean
- Plots nice and roomy
- Stoned Pizzas were nice
- Enjoyed my early morning walks to Mortehoe via Mortehoe Station Road and Woolacombe via Sandy Lane
- We also walked the coastal path into Ilfracombe and Woolacombe
- There was a bit of unkind weather but got the tent up and down in the dry so no biggy

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
We are so glad you had a great stay at Warcombe - thank you very much for passing on your positive thoughts. The coastal walks are really lovely - glad you made the most of your stay here.
