The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

The lovely coastal village of Lynmouth

 

600 feet below Lynton is the small harbour of Lynmouth. The two villages are linked by a famous and ingenius cliff railway, powered by water and which is well worth a ride.
Two rivers - the East Lyn and the Hoaroak - combine just inland from the harbour at Watersmeet and sweep down a spectacular gorge and through the village to the sea. Reminders of the disaster in 1952, when the rivers flooded and a torrent of water washed many cottages into the sea with great loss of life, can be seen in the Memorial Hall.

There are some lovely walks from Lynmouth, notably up the river gorge to Watersmeet where the National Trust have a shop and tea rooms

 


We had a very nice stay for the 3rd time, weather was great, site as always 100%, staff are lovely, we wasn't keen on the Captain Hook Chinese night personally tasted like a Chinese you tried to cook at home that went wrong. Only other gripe was my 10 year old was told no floating bait on the fishing lake, when we looked at the leaflet on the fishing there was no mention of this? Apart from this we are not put off the site and facilities are well above average and we love it at Warcombe Farm!!

One of the best campsites

First visit to this site and it is one of the best sites we have been to.

The toilets and shower facilities are excellent.

There is a lake on site with lots of small fish in, you can catch one every cast if you use smaller baits, The bigger fish are a bit harder to catch and like to dive straight into the weeds when you hook them.

The shop stocks basic supplies only.

The site has Wifi access anywhere on site, so for a reasonable charge you can connect to the internet.

The dog walk at the back of the site has been planted with 1200 trees and covers 15 acres.

If you walk straight through this area and continue down the lane you will end up at Lee Cove which is stunning and unspoilt. The walk takes about 35 minutes and is down some steep slopes so beware as it is even more tiring walking back.

The site is on top of a hill so on a misty day you are in the clouds,

Really you need a car to get to the beaches as the roads leading to them have steep inclines and no footpaths. Though there are regular buses in the summer, with busses stopping right outside the campsite.

The site is about 10 mins drive from Ilfracombe,

5 Mins from Woolacombe and 25 minutes from Croyde.

We certainly would visit this site again
