Sheep grazing on Morte Point

Sheep grazing on Morte Point

 

The Southwest Coast path running from Lee to Morte Point and on to Woolacombe, you should be prepared for a roller-coaster of a walk in places and to have your breath stolen away in others just by the views.

In a few sections there are strenuous flights of steps leading in and out of the valleys on the way, as you make your way towards the lighthouse at Bull Point. The path is well signposted. At the beach at Rockham Bay, though there a few steep steps down to the beach, you can spend a little time cooling your feet when the tide is right. From here the coast path runs along the ancient slate bedded and jagged ridge towards Morte Point.

Head back inland to take the opportunity to explore Mortehoe, a pretty place with places to eat, Mortehoe is just slightly inland from the coast path. All perfect for a Devon walking holiday.

 


Great site

Just back after nearly a week camping. We left a day early as rained solid for previous 2 days and tent had reached its limit (as had patience with 2 young kids... ).

On the nice days however was by far the best site we've camped at. Facilities exceptional, not seen better anywhere. We would deffo return, if weather guaranteed!!

One slight negative point, one of the ranger staff was a bit grumpy. We came back to site one night at 8mph, 3 over the limit. He stormed over to the car like there had been a major incident to tell us to slow down. We were doing 8mph, slower than most who drove into site that night!

That aside, all others were top notch but it did leave us miffed and feeling like naughty school kids!

Great site though, deffo go back if they'd have us

Warcombe Farm Camping Park:
Thanks for your great review Paul - sorry that the weather was not so good - it is tough camping with youngsters when the rain sets in sometimes!
Regarding the speed issue, we have been on the ball this year, as there have been many complaints and problems with folks just going too fast - and it's a real concern when there are lots of children around.
We are glad you enjoyed our park and hope that you will visit again soon! Hope that the summer warms up for us all!

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.
