Grunta Beach

Grunta Beach

 

Apparently named after a cargo of pigs that was wrecked here in the depths of history. Grunta is a sun trap beach beneath Morte Point. A place to relax with peace and quiet.

Grunta Beach is a small cove situated south of the village of Mortehoe, the cove faces westwards out to the Irish Sea, exposed to the wild Atlantic winds making it a thorougly rugged area.

 


Lovely site in a nice location.

Pitches vary in size. I asked for a 'large' pitch and had plenty of room for my 9 birth tent. With electric hook up.

Good children's playground ( I have a 9 and 5 year old ). Lake looked good if you are into fishing.
Toilet and shower facilities very good. Spotlessly clean. Lots of showers. Family bathroom also available.
Dish washing room again very clean and adequate.
Staff very pleasant.
Small shop selling essentials like milk, bread etc.

I didn't actually use the food 'take away', but saw the menu and although it wasn't cheap, it looked reasonable. Plenty of variety.
Overall a very pleasant camping trip.
I would definitely return and recommend this site to others.

Really Generous Pitches

Spent 9 days here in August when the weather was mainly windy and raining. The staff were really friendly and helpful - after showing us to our pitch, they put chippings down to soak up some of the rain and mud. The pitches were really generous and the strategic planting of trees made you feel like you also had some privacy.

The shower/toilet block was lovely and warm with piping hot showers. The shower cubicles were also quite spacious which is great if you've also got young children. There was also a shelving unit, chair and a bin - again very useful. They were always clean too.

The site is ideally situated for getting to other places such as Woolacombe, Ilfracombe, Exmoor etc. We tended to drive to where we were going and then walk as didn't really like to walk down the narrow roads - especially with the children.

When we go back to Devon, I would definitely visit this site again.
